For hundreds of years, April 1st has been a day for japes and tomfoolery, and this year Plusnet decided to join in. Riffing off of the new top level domains currently being released by ICANN and our love of all things Yorkshire, we went with a simple announcement about our plan for a new website, Plusnet.yo
We’re very proud to announce that Plusnet has stepped in for the second year running to give support to the world famous Grimethorpe Colliery Band, allowing the band to continue its great work in the community and help grow talent in the area.
The band, based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire has been a bastion of the local community since founded in 1917 and achieved global fame in 1995 when it was the inspiration for the hit British movie, Brassed Off, which starred Ewan McGregor.
Phone and broadband provider Plusnet has announced that it has been given the go-ahead to launch its website on a new specially created .yo domain later this year aimed at businesses in the Yorkshire area.
With similar domains being offered in Europe already, and with the Tour de France heading to the county later this year, Plusnet has lobbied for the Yorkshire top-level domain to be given the green-light by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) aimed at promoting Yorkshire and Yorkshire business as a whole.
Tired of getting knocked back for jobs? With competition for jobs growing and more people getting higher grades and qualifications, applying for jobs can be a frustrating experience. But some people have been inspired to think outside the box, by thinking of innovative methods to get some publicity and the attention of headhunters/HR Managers. Welcome to extreme job hunting. Following on from our guide on how to stand out online, we decided to investigate just how far some people will go in their attempts to secure employment…
Here at Plusnet we're always trying to use clever open source things to make our lives easier. Sometimes we write our own and make other people's lives easier too!
We're a Yorkshire-based provider selling broadband and phone services to homes and businesses throughout the UK. Winner of the ISPA 2010 'Best Consumer Customer Service ISP' Award, we're proud to offer the UK's best value standalone broadband.
