In this article, I review my experience of becoming a Plusnet Fibre Broadband customer. Including things, I like and don’t like about Plusnet and then my final Plusnet review rating, on whether you should join up. Plus a list of current top Plusnet deals.
Plusnet is a friendly, no-nonsense, award-winning Broadband provider. The Plusnet Broadband company has been around since 1997. The BT group acquired Plusnet in 2007. They provide themselves on their top customer service, all being UK based, which is good. In fact, uSwitch awarded them with the Best provider customer service winner in 2020. Their slogan is “We’ll do you proud”.
Plusnet Broadband – Great Deals Made Easy review
After moving from TalkTalk broadband, I found a fantastic Plusnet Fibre deal involving a prepaid card of £50 and only £22.99 a month, a great deal (made easy). I needed fast fibre Broadband due to working from home, so speed for me was key. After making the order and receiving a Plusnet confirmation email, I was pleasantly surprised to get the router within just a few days and it worked instantly. (The blue light turned on within a minute). This was really promising. 4 months on, my internet remains at a high speed and the price per month I am paying is good value.
Things I like about Plusnet Broadband
*Customer service seems good, with all service agents based in the UK based. The Plusnet broadband review score on Trustpilot is only 1.45/5, yet I have not experienced any issues myself.
*My delivery of the Plusnet router was a smooth process, with simple activation instructions.
*Good Fast fibre internet – My Netflix is now no longer glitching when I watch films, which is refreshingly good.
*The prepaid Plusnet card of £50 – This was a real bonus to joining Plusnet. I spent it wisely on my food shopping.
Things I don’t like about Plusnet Broadband
*The Plusnet router is a bit ugly, in its appearance, with a white plastic 90s look. I’m not a massive fan, so I’ve hidden it behind my television, out of sight.
*Plusnet broadband is not the quickest out there, it is available in three speeds (average speeds listed): 10Mb (ADSL broadband), 36Mb (fibre optic broadband), or 66Mb (fibre optic broadband). Faster speeds are available with other providers, like BT’s fibre product with average speeds of 50Mb and Virgin Media’s broadband packages are over 350Mb. If you are a serious gamer or coders, I’d recommend Plusnet’s Fibre optic broadband or signing up for Virgin or Sky. Compare these Broadband deals here.
GreatDealsMadeEasy Plusnet fibre Broadband verdict
Overall, this is a good value and high-quality Fibre Broadband contract. It could be speedier, but for £22.99 a month, it is a great deal for what you get. I rate it 7.5/10.
