The price is Lite!

Ah, sorry. I did see what you where getting at the first time around.

I did however forget that 2Mb comes with more inclusive bandwidth to start.

Most definatly a strange one.

edit: It is a question that the Usergroup have asked for clarification on.

The price is Lite!

From Friday 11th of February, PlusNet is reducing the price of its
Broadband Home 2Mb Lite to just £14.99 from £19.99, a saving of 25%.



Pre-pay and Pay As You Go data charges are also to be reduced on all
‘Lite’ broadband products.



On Residential Lite products, additional Pre-pay data-transfer prices will
be reduced to just £1.50 per GB (including VAT) on all available speeds.
On Teleworker and Business products, additional Pre-pay data-transfer will
be £1.50 per GB (excluding VAT).



These are definitely some of the sharpest prices around for Pre-pay and
PAYG broadband and represent excellent value and a far easier choice for
customers.



What about Premier customers?



In the next few weeks we will be announcing our next special deal to
existing PlusNet ‘Premier’ customers, so they won’t be missing out,
and with announcements from BT on their wholesale price reductions,
PlusNet will be making more great value changes over the next few months.



N.B: Business and Teleworker Pre-pay prices exclude VAT.

Residential prices include VAT.

Pay As You Go pricing is 25p extra per GB.

Stewart,
Would you like to clarify your statement as it appears at face value that the 2MB customers are getting twice the included (not bandwidth - my mistake) data transfer of the 1MB customers for the same price.
Worse still I can't get 2MB - so when will BT relax the line length / noise limits.

This means you can purchase any speed connection for the same monthly cost.

Yes, 2Mb customers can download the same as a 1Mb user and pay the same.

However, that means little more than downloading in half the time,

Not quite the point - the 2MB package has 2GB included but the 1MB has only 1GB
Just realised - my error - I didn't mean bandwidth but included data transfer. Shockedops:

Yes I feel that this is a bit unfair as I am only able to get 1mb connection and have to pay for the extra 1gb that I use.

I am sure though plus net will even out the palying field as it were. Wink

It would seem so far that it will be an even playing field, according to a post on ADSL Guide.

We are awaiting official confirmation though.

I will pass the information on when it is available.

Quote from ADSLguide - Stewart said
I think an important thing here that I maybe need just to clarify is that this is not just for new lite customers but for everyone even those who currently have a lite product. For example for those who have the 19.99 account with 2GB of data transfer they will at their next billing date be paying 16.49 which is 14.99 for the base product and 1.50 for the 1GB extra of data transfer.
So the statement at the top appears to be not quite accurate

Hi There

That is indeed the accoutn we will lower the prices for all customers from thier next billing date from the point of view that the base product is the 14.99 one with 1GB of data transfer. Then after that every 1GB prepaid is 1.50 so for the current account with 2GB it is one included and one extra at 1.50.

That useful piece of infromation was handily missed out of the announcement, then.

The point was more that you shouldn't have had to clear it up Stew - it should have been in the announcement when it was made.
