The Next and only option apart from paying as you go is BBYW Option 4 which is £29,99 a month and gives you 40GB usage

Hi there,
As the previous poster advised your next option is to double your allowance for £29.99. Alternatively you could schedule larger downloads for the overnight period, when usage is not counted towards your monthly allowance.

Yes, we are out of the free overnight period and your speeds will be restricted. As far as i'm aware speeds over allowance are not restricted during off peak, but if i am wrong i'm sure someone at PN will corect me
Unless you opt to PAYG which is £1/GB then yes you would be restricted to 128k
But if you upgrade the system will take any additional payment (Pro Rata) and would then put you onto option 4 as i said it usually takes an hour as it's a simple speed regrade and nothing physical

Hmm, i would have assumed the system would have taken payment there and then, with PRO and Option 3 there is no price difference so payment is not taken until the next billing date.
You pay in advance with Plusnet

When I increased the usage on my account I was billed on my usual date.  The bill included a pro-rata amount in arrears for the previous month's increased usage and the new amount in advance for the next month.
