Is Plusnet broadband actually any good?

With BT's price hikes it has given me a chance to get out of my contract as the prices are ridiculous, I am thinking of going with Plusnet as they seem very cheap.

They mention that they throttle things like streaming and online gaming at peak times, how prominent is this? Also is it anything like TalkTalk as I have been with them and could get better internet by plugging an Ethernet cable into a potato.

@tiloketi9  Welcome to the forum.

Plusnet do not throttle streaming, gaming or anything else. I don't know who is saying otherwise?

BT, Plusnet, Talk Talk and other ISPs use the same BT infrastructure for FTTC fibre so speeds should not be significantly different.  The Plusnet hubs are not as good as the BT Smarthub but the Smarthub can be set to work with Plusnet. Many of us use them.

Plusnet's customer services is currently not good due to the lock down but I have no idea how this compares with others.

Plusnet is nothing like TalkTalk: I spent a wasted year with them before I joined Plusnet
