Plusnet receive Good Housekeeping Reader Recommendation

July 29th, 2014 12:50 by Chris Parr

We’re delighted to announce that our phone and broadband customer service is now Good Housekeeping Reader Recommended.

An incredible 91% of surveyed readers who have a Plusnet phone and broadband package felt that the package represented good value for money, with 82% saying that they would definitely or probably recommend Plusnet to a friend.

A questionnaire developed by the experts at the Good Housekeeping Institute, was sent to the readers asking them to comment on their package in four main areas. Performance, overall acceptability, propensity to purchase and whether they’d recommend the service were the areas queried.

How communication and computers are leading changes in F1

F1 Mercedes 2014

It’s the 50th anniversary of Silverstone this weekend as the British Grand Prix takes place and so Plusnet thought we would take a look at how broadband internet, computers and technology have also revolutionised how teams perform on the track.

Whilst social media has played a significant role in helping fans peek behind the scenes, which we will be covering in a future blog with F1 Team Caterham, it is undoubtedly the work in the offices of each team that provides the thrills and success on the track for fans to enjoy. Being able to communicate internally and externally through email, as well as receiving in-race data at an almost instantaneous rate, is a necessity and can mean the difference between winning and losing.

Look to the stars

June 27th, 2014 at 03:00 pm by Martyn Hudson

Astronomy has long struggled to get the airtime it deserves. Every once in a while a story will come along and make the headlines for a few days, but then it fades back to the sidelines again. However, programmes such as Stargazing Live and The Sky at Night have made astronomy much more appealing to the casual viewer and inspired generations just as Carl Sagan’s Cosmos: A Personal Voyage did on the BBC a few decades ago.
