Those of you familiar with our Webmail platform may have noticed this morning that it’s had a bit of a facelift.
We’ve been running an open trial of the new service since late last year and have been really happy with the results so today we’ve decided to remove the ‘beta’ label and make the service the default Webmail offering.
We’re delighted to announce that Plusnet are the official broadband partner of the 2011 Gillette Four Nations. The Rugby League tournament takes place throughout October and November, and will see England, Wales, Australia and the current World Champions New Zealand contesting the trophy. All of the games will be broadcast on either the BBC or Sky Sports, with the eagerly-anticipated double-header at Wembley Stadium broadcast on both channels.
The partnership will see us offering new customers a pair of tickets to a Four Nations game of their choice and a month’s free broadband when they take Plusnet broadband and home phone. Full details of the offer can be found over on our website here.
We’re delighted to announce that award-winning Mancunian television and radio presenter Terry Christian is supporting our Plusnet Manchester awareness campaign.

This Saturday, Terry will be at the Pass Plusnet On event at the Trafford Centre in Manchester.
