Stuck on 40/10 but paying for 80/20

Hi there


I was hoping a friendly admin here might help as I am getting nowhere with the conventional route.


tl;dr :

1)WIth plusnet for three years approx on fibre essentials (40/10)

2)At contract renewal in march was persuaded to go over to fibre extra for a small additional monthly fee (80/20)

3) Broadband goes down in early October.  During the repair period it is revealed that the switch to 80/20 has never occurred.

4) Repeated attempts by plusnet tech to switch over to 80/20.  Two engineer visits, both told of line failure rather than incorrect line banding

5) Most recent engineer commented that plusnet need to tell openreach it is a new product to force the banding change, rather than randomly calling out an engineer under the auspices of a line fault.  (The 40/10 line is fine and stable again btw).


Is there somebody here who knows which button to push for this to happen?


Many thanks in advance, 


All Star

I suggest raising a compliant with PN.
Ignore any refernces to chat, PN have stopped supporting chat but left references to it littered across the website 😞
Raise a ticket and ask for the contracted service to be provisioned on your line and a refund for the additional money paid for each month they failed to properly provision the circuit.
Also ask for a good wil gesture as you had to contact Plusnet multiple timess, be in attendance for two Openreach visits etc

Hi there- thanks of your advice RichardB- I will do just that!  Unfortunate to have to go down the formal complaint route but responses to the support ticket are not getting me anywhere.
