Anyone use Plusnet as their ISP?

Thinking of switching to them - are they any good?

I have heard they are pretty good from a friend of mine.

Thinking of signing up to them myself

Very good and price of £14.99 for 2mb broadband not bad either.

I use them, and very good service and speeds so far, am awaiting my free upgrade to 2mb.

I'm probably changing providers next month & Plusnet do seem good value.

Is the only difference between their "Plus" & "Premier" options the contention rate as neither appear to have any download limits?

  Rigga 11:27 12 May 2005

There are no limits to downloads on either product, although there are talks of throttling excessive use on their forums.

With Plus, P2P applications are throttled during busy times, and you can't have a static IP. There's also some other web differences.

BTW. If either BigMoFoT or [email protected], do join, and want to become referrals of mine, then I'd be eternally grateful. My username is RCCLTD.

Cheeky I know, but then if you don't ask you don't get :)

Cheers Rigga

I'll probably be changing ISP's next month & will bear you in mind if I go with Plusnet.

Would there much of a difference in practice between a 50:1 & a 30:1 contention rate & is it worth the extra £7 per month (nearly 50% more) for the difference?
