Latest in my ongoing saga of Plusnet problems after going live a few days ago... I signed up on 16 December 2020 and the switch/new service went live with them on 30th December 2020.
The Plusnet site state that unless with Virgin, they will handle the switch and inform my old provider of the switch and cancellation of the old account.
However this morning I received an email from my old provider John Lewis asking why I'd cancelled my direct debit (done yesterday to be safe) and that I was to setup a new payment method - so it seem they have no idea I've left?
Can anyone shed some light on if I am correct in thinking that Plusnet was meant to handle this?
Fixed! Go to the fix.
Re: Old provider been in touch stating old account still active & I/Plusnet did not inform them?
Maybe they’ve screwed it up. As JL broadband is run by Plusnet all sorts of things can arise.
On the other hand accounts are normally left open until any final charges are settled. For example you might get extra charges or a refund depending how the changeover date aligned with your billing period etc.
