Plusnet Radio Commercial

I heard a radio commercial today for Plusnet.  Has anyone else heard it yet?  It has a 'humorous' message and the only thing with this is that once you've heard it a few times the 'humour' isn't funny any more.  I would be interested to hear from PN what sort of response they're getting.

Edit It was on absolute classic rock.

Re: Plusnet Radio Commercial

Here you go, there's a couple of them. They're being aired nationally across a number of popular radio stations.
You can listen to them here and here.

Bob without getting into another pointless debate I've a question, I thought PN didn't advertise but that they got customers through customers, Or that's how i read it almost a year ago when i joined up?

Re: Plusnet Radio Commercial

Whatever you think of the adverts, Plusnet should not be advertising at the moment.
When for example, users who are getting restricted speeds because a usage tracking fault means they've gone over their allowance have no response to their tickets for a week or more (linky) it is plainly obvious that they do not have sufficient resources to support their existing customer base, let alone take on more users.

Re: Plusnet Radio Commercial

It's the 'Full Monty' I heard and it is embarrassing Embarrassed  To make it worse it was played on LBC which is a serious talk radio station in London and would not appeal IMO to its audience.  I don't know who does your advertising but they need to study their demographics.

Re: Plusnet Radio Commercial

Not the case Jelv. Whilst I don't know the specifics behind the usage not resetting problem (although I believe it be a single person problem), we absolutely do have resource to be able to cope with increased signups that extra marketing would offer.
Give our customer services team a ring and see how quickly they answer, there's barely been any in the queue most of the afternoon.

Re: Plusnet Radio Commercial

So why haven't they had a response for a week?
[quote=http://www.plus.net/supportpages.html?a=212]Average closure time: 6 hours, 51 minutes and 56 seconds
Target closure time: 4 hours
That tells a story: you are not hitting the target. When you start hitting the target is the time to start advertising.

Worth bearing in mind that's not a live update (I believe it's from this morning?).
We've had perhaps a new 60 members of staff since I got back, perhaps more.

Jelv,
The ticket in question wasn't responded to because it was put on hold pending a developer fixing the problem.

@Steve M, historically we've concentrated on referral programmes to gain new customers, but recently we've started experimenting with different forms of advertising as well as these.
