Anyone use them and what do you think ie migration times, reliability etc.

We've found them good and reliable; don't know about migration times.

A word of warning about the 2mb connection - it won't happen until BT upgrades your exchange so you might not get the faster speed straight away.

i've been with pipex for some time now 2mb wireless connection unlimeted for £30 you should look at the offers within pipex.

solo is 1mb for £14.99

I have been with plusnet for more than two years and would recommend them.I think new customers get the 2mb immediately, existing customers have to wait their turn unless they pay £15 to jump the queue as I did. Also as I understand it when your exchange is upgraded to 8mb you will get this upgrade for free.

Do you pay £14.99 or is it to attract new customers, then they hike the price up next year

I pay £14.49 a month for 2M, as I have 1 referral.

  Chaz10 21:10 13 Jun 2005

whats the referral lark?

I'm with Plusnet and have upgraded to the 2mb service. Your usage is limited to 2Gb which I found wasn't enough especially with the kids downloading god knows what, so I changed to a 4Gb usage for £17.99 per month plus I can change back if I then find it's to high. Remember your usage includes uploads as well as downloads if you are using a file sharing program. HTH TR

I have been with Plusnet for over a year and they are fantastic.
Never any problems with connection etc.
Customer support very helpful and answer the phone quite quickly compared to some others.

Top marks from me 10/10
