Announcement: ADSL Price Cuts & New Higher Speed Residen

Dear Customers,

We are pleased to announce that the following press release was published earlier today.
***
PlusNet are pleased today to confirm that their Broadband ADSL pricing will be slashed from the 1st May to benefit existing customers and promote the take-up of Broadband in the UK from new customers.

In response to BT's announcement today, and contrary to recent press speculation that ISPs would be unlikely to pass on the savings, PlusNet has decided to improve the end user's lot starting with ADSL Home Surf, PlusNet's entry level home Broadband ADSL product, which will be priced at £18.99/mth inc VAT (reduced from £19.99/mth inc. VAT) and our most popular product, ADSL Home, drops to £21.99/mth inc VAT.

New products
There will be three new feature-rich home options for the more demanding Internet user:

Home 500 at £29.99/mth (inc. VAT), Home 1000 at £44.99/mth (inc. VAT), and Home 2000/mth at £59.99/mth (inc. VAT). Contention ratios on all these products are 20:1. Full details on these and other products will be available on http://www.plus.net.

Current price - Price from May 1st - Saving
Home Surf (50:1) £19.99 - £18.99 - £1.00
Home (50:1) £22.99 - £21.99 - £1.00
Home 500 (20:1) £ - £29.99 - New!
Home 1000 (20:1) £ - £44.99 - New!
Home 2000 (20:1) £ - £59.99 - New!

All prices inc VAT and monthly

As with all PlusNet products, industry leading 24*7 customer support comes as standard.

Business products:
More significant savings are to be found in PlusNet's business product set with the following reductions taking effect from the 1st May.

Current price - Price from May 1st - Saving
Biz Surf (50:1) £26.99 - £24.99 - £2.00
Netstart (50:1) £29.99 - £27.99 - £2.00
Office500 (20:1) £55.00 - £40.00 - £15.00
Office1000 (20:1) £90.00 - £55.00 - £35.00
Office2000 (20:1) £110.00 - £70.00 - £40.00

All prices ex VAT and monthly

PlusNet business products are a great way for business users to get online with a fast and reliable connection. The Office 2000 product is particularly compelling at £70/mth (ex VAT) for business that needs to get the whole office online. The added value of the feature rich applications that are offered with this product make it irresistible.

Alistair Wyse, Technical Director said, "This represents a tremendous opportunity for the UK to get connected. The new home products are designed to make sure that you get an extremely flexible and fast connection into the home - well within the home budget. We will be taking advance orders for these throughout the month of April at www.plus.net. We look forward to welcoming more members to the PlusNet family".

Once again, PlusNet proves that it's the Smarter Way to Internet.

Please address any questions via Contact Us or our Portal discussion forums. We would also like to confirm that all changes will apply to current customers for invoices raised after the 1st May 2003.

With Regards,

Customer Support

So I take it the ADSL 1000 account isn't getting a price cut? The only reason I ask is that's the connection I've got at work and quite frankly the difference between £55 and £130 is quite a lot a month.

I know from experience that the extra money gets us replacement equipment as the BT ADSL router went after just over a years use, but for the price saving we wouldn't mind forking out for a new router.

So two questions really, is ADSL 1000 getting a price cut, and if not is it possible to convert to the Office 1000 account (just they didn't exist when we signed up 1.5 years ago)

Hi there,

Unfortunately BT have not announced any price cuts for products installed by themselves - we will of course le you know if this changes.
You can change to the Office 1000 account if you wish, but this again unfortunately requires a cease and reprovide at a cost of £58.75 inc. VAT.
