Free broadband and £75 cashback from Plusnet

The only way that free unlimited broadband can be improved upon is when they also hand over £75 to sweeten the deal, and PlusNet is doing precisely that with its latest ADSL2+ offer that runs until 5th May 2015.

New customers signing up to the unlimited ADSL2+ service will get free broadband for the 12 months of the contract irrespective of whether in a low cost area or not, then after 12 months the standard price of £9.99 a month or in rural areas £17.49 will apply.

Voice line rental at £15.95 per month applies which includes free weekend calls to UK landlines. Cashback must be claimed within two months of the service going live.


Obviously a great deal and nice to see it's available in all areas for a change.

Yes indeed it is about time and good to see the PN offer is available to potential customers in "high cost areas" for a change, of course BTr's Offers of the month/s already apply to all regardless what area/exchange the user's line is connected to, if I'm not mistaken!

But does Plusnet look after its longstanding existing customers

Am I correct in reading this as the ability to claim claim back the cost of 5 months line rental if you switch to Plusnet "from" BT? Is this why take up of BDUK-funded "superfast" is so low? And does Plusnet count against the BDUK performance figures, including for the clawback of state aid.

It looks like they are possibly offering this for customers that can only get ADSL/ADSL Max as well (I'm a Plusnet customer and my Tel Ex is ADSL Max, but I put in my postcode as if I did not have a phone line - it came up with the same offer)

Not cheap. After 12 months, over £8 dearer than I pay on Market 1 with no tie-in, though I expect the £6 line rental I pay makes the difference.

@PhilipVirgo - BDUK is at wholesale level not retail so PlusNet customers count just the same as any other provider using BT wholesale.

@philipvirgo Current PlusNet fibre offer is six months free broadband and at various times does also have cashback offers running.

Take-up is largely a factor of time and how well the arrival is publicised in an area.
