Plusnet to pump up broadband only, line rental and phone prices

Plusnet has taken a leaf out of TalkTalk’s book by announcing that it will increase broadband, line rental and phone costs in October. 

Prices of the Value and Extra copper-based broadband and fibre broadband products will go up by an extra £1.50/month unless they’re taken alongside a Plusnet home phone package. Prices for bundled broadband services won’t increase. 

The standard price of line rental will also go up to £14.99/month to £13.99/month. Customers who want to save a bit of extra cash by opting for the lump sum Line Rental Saver option can currently pay £131.88 for 12 months, equivalent to £10.99/month.

Shouldn’t that say ‘beaten’?

The Talk Anytime call plan which currently costs £4.00/month will go up in price by 50p from October 1 onwards and the Talk Anytime International Plan, currently, £6.00/month will increase by the same amount, going up to £6.50/month. 

Finally, the out of bundle and call charges will also go up from October onwards. These are: 

  • Call set up fees (where applicable) increasing to 13.87p
  • The price of chargeable calls to 01, 02, 03, 0845 and 0870 numbers will change to 8.41p per minute at all times
  • The price of calls to UK mobiles will change to 12p per minute at all times

As with the TalkTalk price rises, these take effect from October 1, 2013. We will update our price tables when this happens.
