BT vs plusnet Full Firbe 500 Broadband

So the plot thickens. I looked into this a while ago but Plusnet were a lot more expensive if you wanted fast upload, but they have now aligned themselves.

They both offer the same upload/download speed and Plusnet is initially $1 more expensive. But there in contract price rises are a lot better. They both have CPI but BT also adds 3.9%.

They both have a 24-month contract but from what I can see don't hike the price after that. They say you do a 1-month rolling contract.

So Plusnet seems a slam dunk, thoughts?

    Plusnet also have CPI + 3.9% Increases written into ts & cs. ALSO if you require a home VOIP service then BT offer Digital Voice but PN are not going to offer a phone service at all with FTTP

    Thanks, found it
    "18.3. Subject to paragraph 18.6, a percentage price increase will be applied to the price of broadband, line rental, call plans and call charges. This price increase will be applied on or after 1st March each year from March 2022, and will be equal to a percentage comprising of i) the Consumer Price Index (CPI) rate figure published by the Office for National Statistics in January of that year (ignoring any negative figure) plus ii) 3.9%, and rounded up to the nearest whole pence. If the CPI figure is negative, the price increase will only be 3.9%."
