Re: How can I get on trial for fibre to home

Hi @Tellan

Welcome to the forums.  If you put your number into does it say you can get FTTP? (Not FTTPoD which is different),  Also you need to be an existing Plusnet broadband customer.


If so you need to go to and fill in the details it asks for on the FTTP link.


Hope that helps

First you must be an existing Plusnet broadband customer


Then, check with BT if you are able to get FTTP using the BT Broadband checker at
The results will need to look like this


If the first line of the "Featured Products" says "WBC FTTP" then you can apply for the trial at

Another way is to go to the BT Retail website and see if you can buy Infinity 4 from them (FTTP at 330Mbps download). If you can then you can also apply to join the Plusnet trial or use BT or even Zen (the latter 2 offer FTTP as a product not just a trial)

Finally Plusnet only offer 2 speeds for FTTP, 40Mbps down/2Mbps up or 80Mbps down/20Mbps up. Use BT if you want faster.


If coming across from BT, here is a thread which may answer your queries

BT to Plusnet FTTP Migration Thread

There is a complete list of all FTTP providers at

Openreach Ultrafast fibre suppliers

Finally VirginMedia are installing some 2 million FTTTP connections via their Project Lightening before 2019 so it might be a consideration if they are planning to install in your area.
