Are the clouds supposed to represent Virgin, talk talk and AOL?

Plusnet launched nine years ago and is now owned by BT. It is positioned as a low-cost alternative to BT's broadband services.

That raised my eyebrows too Santiago... reminded me of my 'Tiscalification' comments a couple of months ago but figured it best not to bang on about that!

To be fair - the number of potential viewers in Yorkshire doesn't quite match London and the SE  Wink

Personally I quite like it, simple and eye-catching.

Not sure why this would be? We're the same Plusnet as we were when you signed the contract, just now we have our name on the weather.

Is it true that plusnet is a cheaper alternative to BT, or simply that plusnet offers some products that BT don't which are less expensive?

We're not a "cheap BT".
We're still Plusnet as you know us and I'd merely suggest that you compare the pricing between our and BTs broadband products.

Look at the performance issues at the moment.
Look at the service complaints at the moment with faults not being addressed correctly or in a timely manner.
Cheap is at the moment a pretty appropriate label.
