Downgrading to lower tariff service and admin cost


Downgrading to lower tariff service and admin cost

Been with PlusNet since 2003.

And have been on the Basic Premier Service. Now I dont use half the features any more and dont require the additional services that they provide so I want to drop my service to the cheaper Broadband Plus...

However just running it through and it costs £29.99 to downgrade.

I know PNet are out there to make money but to me that sounds a bit OTT.

Especially when I can cancel and transfer to another supplier for free.

Is there anything they can do to reduce this down. I have always been happy with PlusNet and dont really want to change but the cost to downgrade my product seems stupid.

Any help will be great

It's normally only 14.99 to downgrade unless you are trying for more speed at the same time.Try raising a ticket if you can find the right route through help and support and ask.
How much do you download a month, you may be better getting payg if it is not much as you keep most of the bits and bobs that come with the premier service.

I transfered from premier 1 to payg and selected 6gb per month for usage. The features are the same but it can cost £14.99 per month if you stick with the 2gb deal.

If you downgrade then sadly their is a one of £14.99 charge.

So to downgrade you should be charged only 14.99 unless you have selected to change from for example yearly to monthly contract as that ny have an impact. I found the charges esp the downgrade listed but not really clarified all that well on the site.
