    Plusnet Line Rental Saver 12th Jan 18 at 11:43 PM
    I have seen various references to this on this forum and on the net but I can't find anywhere that tells me how much the discount actually is for paying yearly instead of monthly.
    I am thinking of getting their up to 35 fibre to the cabinet package with PAYG calls as we rarely use the current BT landline for calls. It's really only there because we need it for the ASDL broadband. We are currently with BT for the landline. We don't have a contract. We are still on the old fashioned paper bills paying quarterly and only have weekend calls included.
    The Plusnet package is £23.99 per month for 18 months with no setup fee. Does anybody have this package that could tell me how much you save by paying up front.

    Line rental costs £18.99 a month.

    Pay for 12 months line rental in advance and save money. Line Rental Saver costs £197.88 for 12 months line rental (monthly equivalent £16.49).

    Thanks so much Steve. Never thought to look at the answer to that particular question as I thought it would just say Plusnet plc or whatever.

    Though as line rental is sold in 12 month lumps but broadband in 18 month lumps it can make calculating the cost interesting.

    After 12 months you can either pay for 6 months at full price or renew for 12 months and have no leverage when the original 18 month term is up, unless you want to forfeit 6 months of reduced price payments (which may or may not be more than a new deal anyway).


    These out of step deals only coincide after 3 years, when you are free to negotiate.


    That's one advantage of ADSL which is still largely 12 months based.
