Plusnet in broadband/telephone bundle offer
Plusnet has announced a promotion that will be available until 10th December 2008, whereby you can can have their Broadband Your Way Option 1 product and the telephone line rental for £11.97 rising to £19.98 after the first three months.
The usage allowance is a fairly low 2GB a month, but for an extra £5 a month Option 2 with a 15GB allowance is available. The package includes free activation, a free 4 port Ethernet and wireless router, and an up to 8Mbps ADSL connection speed. The usage is unmetered between midnight and 8am. The telephone side of things adds free evening and weekend calls to UK landlines in addition to the line rental. While the package has no lengthy contract if you leave within 12 months you are expected to pay back the cost of the free activation and wireless router.
It is worth pointing out that this pricing applies across the whole UK, i.e. it does not rely on Plusnet having access to an unbundled network. Following on from some other providers offering a guarantee Plusnet has a 90 day guarantee for most of its products for those migrating in from another provider, which will see you getting refunded your subscription payments if you leave in the 90 days. If you took free hardware at sign-up though you will still be expected to pay for that.
