How long before Plusnet change the company name...

... to TalkNet?
Would seem to be the next logical step for them!

Very unlikely. Talktalk types of business offer a rebate cheque to new customers which subsequently proves difficult to obtain.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: How long before Plusnet change the company name...

Yeah.... BT lost me as a landline customer when they put up ther landline price....  They would not match any other supplier, thinking they were " the bees knees"... so stuff the... as for PlusNet line rental.... well, it is part of BT... so they missed out on my phone and line business too...  BT increase letter specifically said it was because they were providing more TV channels,... which is fair enough... IF you have BT TV... I don`t... so why should I have to pay for it ?    Get stuffed BT...
As for PlusNet Line Rental saver at £188..... I am with The Post Office for Line Rental only..  plus a 24/7 "free" phone call package.... Line Rental Saver with them is £144.00... so save £44.00 on that. 
PlusNet Bean Counters should go back to Roman TImes....
S.P.Q.R was on their Centurions flag staffs.....  My father told me  ( probably his joke ).... it stood for Small Profit Quick Returns....... .

Re: How long before Plusnet change the company name...

like with most companys when they are doing really well they grow and expand and then it normall goes down hill  Cry Plusnets CS is poor now from what it used to be when i first joined, and its not the people on the shop floor who are to blame, its those at the top trying to make extra cash and prob putting too much work onto its current staff.

Except for the loss incurred with line rental paid up front and early termination fees..  Lips are sealed
The fact that I entered a long contract for a discount though does reflect that I still believe Plusnet offer value for money, maybe now by a reduced compared with their competitors.

Re: How long before Plusnet change the company name...

im tied into an 18 month contract,  in general plusnets internet service is fine but waiting times for tickets are getting longer and you dont see many support guys in the forums as much now, because i bet they all got more work to do because of the increase in new customers.

Re: How long before Plusnet change the company name...

I joined Plusnet at a time when they didn't charge extra for Broadband only.
So I have a BT line, no desire for "Sport" TV - just want a line to make a few phone calls on.
I don't use a mobile.
So what is a good cheaper voice-only provider?
It's not Plusnet...

All these people seem to be trying to flog broadband with their telephone services.
No wonder people think it is a good idea to go for BT.

Line rental £15.00 per month..... or  Line Rental Saver  £144.00
Anytime calls @ £5.75 per month...
Plus any other phone call charges... i.e  to mobiles, prem rate. etc..

This is the problem...
Current BT rates are
£18 per month line rental
Evening/Weekend calls @ £3-20 per month
Plus any other phone call charges... i.e  to mobiles, prem rate. etc..
This is not a great difference (at least at present).
All these companies use the same network, so differences won't be that great.
