Plusnet has cut the costs of its unlimited broadband and calls products, offering up to 16Mbps broadband for £2.99/month for the first nine months of an 18 month contract.
Normally priced at £9.99/month, this deal gives you £7 off a month for the first half of the contract.
Those after some cheaper FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) broadband can also pick up Plusnet Unlimited Fibre for £12.99/month for the first nine months instead of the usual £19.99/month rate.
You’ve also got the option of taking Plusnet line rental, which works out at £14.50/month if you take it at the regular rate, or at the equivalent of £10.99/month for 12 months should you pay for a lump sum of £131.88 up front.
With Plusnet Fibre Unlimited you’d still need to have an Openreach engineer come round if you’ve not already had a VDSL modem set up in your home. The visit itself is free but you’ll need to at home foir the visit as there’s currently no way to install everything yourself.
