PlusNet is 10!

Morning all,

Today sees PlusNet's 10th birthday, and to celebrate we have loads of stuff going on, including giving you the chance to win a new car.

This page here gives more info about the offer, along with other news, and you can find a quick rundown of the last 10 years here

I see the highlights don't mention the surf time cull.

I assume the Golf R32 will have a speed limiter installed in case it is used at peak time.

Or better still, if the new owner does more than 10,000 miles a year, this will be deemed "unacceptable use" and the car will be taken away from them.

It will also randomly slow down to crawling pace for no apparent reason before suddenly regaining top speed. (Subject to the Speed Limiter!)

All the cars faults will be laid at the door of the Highways Agency regardless of what they might be.

Cheesy

Happy Birthday. Don't set fire to anything with all those candles Wink

Oh, how much you have to learn... its a new car, up to a new Golf R32 - road conditions may dictate that you can only recieve a Sinclair C5. Tongue


Oh yeah, happy B'Day PN. :lol:

Now why couldn't PN offer something we all would want/need: like a years free subscription to a different ISP? ;-)

The more friends you bring along, the more chance you have of winning.


As much as I might fancy a new car, I would rather maintain my friendships. I suspect most people will agree - the result shall probably be that some selfish loner will win, as he'll have had to have shafted all his friends!!

Each wheel will be like a Central, they can all go at different speeds and will not be balanced ... it will be a bumpy ride! Smiley

Yes, and you have to keep pulling over, stopping and changing them every few hours to try and get a smoother ride.

Bah - Id enter, but I like fast cars. lol. Wink

Im going to be ear bashing as many folk as possible, its about time some of them had broadband from PN instead of dialup from BT.

It would make a nice exchange for the TDi Golf. Cheesy

Yup, but not to light them all at the same time. Maybe staggered ignition will do - including some at 4am.

Oh dear this thread is getting cringely awful (have just made cringely a word if it isn't one). I feel ashamed for just making this post Smiley

Happy birthday for tomorrow though.
