Introduction to Plusnet
If you are looking for a product which isn't only cheap but is
also good quality, Plusnet is probably your best bet. The provider
is no stranger to winning award after award (even from the Internet
Service Providers' Association) for providing a budget-friendly
broadband and calls packages.
This means that cash-strapped customers are definitely going to
find a deal that will not only suit their browsing and calling
habits, but also help to keep putting pennies in the piggybank.
Those who have been browsing the web ever since 1997 may recall
a provider named Force9 Internet which provided a dial-up internet
connection. As technology advanced the firm started to sell
broadband in 2000. Seven years later, BT was very much interested
in the provider and decided to buy it.
To this day, BT is the parent company of Plusnet but the firm
still functions under its own brand name.
At the moment, Plusnet keeps its prices brutally competitive and
often runs promotions such as free broadband services when bundling
Industry experts advise consumers to bundle their services from
a single provider (for example taking broadband and calls from one
company) as it can save hundreds in the long run.
Customers who are interested in superfast speeds can opt for
Plusnet's fibre broadband packages.
Why it may not be right for you
While Plusnet is a great budget broadband provider, customers
who are interested in digital TV services may want to look at ISPs
who supply all three services such as Sky or Virgin Media.
Also, it might be worth adding that if you are looking for
unlimited downloads, you should probably look elsewhere, seen as
the provider's services come with monthly usage allowances which
are generous for some but might not be enough for heavy downloaders
Those who demand a lot from their broadband connections
(unlimited usage, high speed) should sign up to a higher-end
package to escape over-use penalties.
