March 20th, 2014 09:30 by Martyn Hudson

Plusnet has today secured its sixth, consecutive Which? recommendation for broadband

Which? is the largest independent consumer body in the country and has given Plusnet broadband a five star rating for value for money, accuracy and clarity of bills, and a four star rating in all other judging categories including: connection speed; ease of set up; ease to contact to the service provider; overall customer service experience; reliability of the connection and technical support.

To become a “Which? Recommended Provider” a product must receive an overall score of at least 70% in the Which? consumer survey and get an average or above ratings for all other aspects of service.  Plusnet broadband gained an overall score of 73%.
