£14.99 Service question........

Can anyone tell me of any restrictions for the £14.99 broadband home 512k connection. I need to configure a broadband account for someone and want to recommend that service.

Also, anyone had problems transferring from TiscaliHuh?

£14.99 Service question........

That very much depends on which £14.99 package you refer to.

PlusNet provide 2 packages at this cost. The PAYG & Plus accounts.

PAYG is as it suggests, an account type where you pay based on the amount of data you transfer.

These accounts come with 1GB of transfer included, with aditional GB's charges at £1 when payed in advance, or £1.25 on post pay.

The Broadband Plus package at £14.99 is a 512Kb service, with no transfer allowances or extra to pay for more data. There are however restrictions on the speed of certain services during peak times.

These restrictions are based on the amount of people using the service at the time the user wishes access. Things like web-browsing and email are given priority (faster), whilst downloading large files or P2P applications have lower priority.

As for the Tiscali service, this may be a problem. Tiscali are a DataStream ISP and by default, do not support outbound migration.

This would likely mean that you would need to cancel the service, and pay the full activation fee if moving providers.
