    New Broadband Provider Wanted

    New Broadband Provider Wanted 4th Oct 17 at 3:01 PM
    My Plusnet account has now run out, as has my advance line rental payment. Are there any really good deals around at the moment (with or without basic TV)? My head is spinning trying to weigh them all up. I don’t want to pay more than about £35- £40 a month inc line rental and I can get around 37mb speed at the moment with Plusnet so I don’t want to go slower really

    At that speed you are low end fibre, speeds common across most ISP's are 38, 52 and 78.

    Personally I find most people do fine on ADSL if they can get 12mb or above but based on your stated need these offers are currently shown on Cheap deals page albeit that they are not that cheap

    Up-to-52Mb fibre broadband & line rental

    Ends Thu. BT: Equiv £19.65/mth
    EE: Equiv £20.34/mth
    Plusnet: Equiv £22.49/mth

    Up-to-76Mb fibre broadband & line rental

    EE: Equiv £26.84/mth

    These are introductory offers so check what they revert to after 12 or 18 period is over

    This is page for the deals

    I've not contacted PN. They weren't very forthcoming when my account ran out (3 months ago, Line rental just run out) despite me being with them for about 9 years now

    I phoned PN.. They offered unlimited fibre BB for £26 a month inc line rental. I could probably get a better deal but I'm fed up of looking now so I've agreed to it for 12 months and in the meantime I'll try to look around

    I've got the same price as last year (up front rate line and free ADSL) with free caller display to counterbalance the £12 annual increase on line saver.
    I intended to play them off against Sky, but a phone wait of an hour (so no free time to haggling ) and no hat ,put me off bothering.
