With over 600 customers connected and over 100 orders in progress, Plusnet are closing the 'first phase' of their FTTC (fibre-to-the-cabinet) trial. Feedback has reportedly been very helpful in working out issues and problems. Plusnet are now going to proceed with the next stage of the trial which is a beta roll out.
The fibre beta trial will be available to all existing customers on the Value, Extra and Pro products for an additional £12 per month, if you live in a FTTC enabled area. Those on an older package will need to switch to one of Value, Extra or Pro to take part in the trial. It is recommended that users select the Extra option as it has a higher usage limit. On average, customers have been using around 40% more usage on FTTC, likely due to more Internet use, or taking advantage of higher quality video such as watching iPlayer in HD.
