Pulsewebnet

I came across this ISP which appears to be targeting Plusnet customers. The site uses similar branding colours, and makes many direct comparisons to Plusnet products.
There are three products, a Value at £6.49pm with 10Gb allowance, and an Extra at £9.99pm with unlimited downloads! There is also a Weekend at £2.79pm
They also claim that the max contention is 25:1 compared to 50:1, and this gives better speeds (which I suppose is true during peak periods).

Re: Pulsewebnet

We're aware of this internally too, there's also a very similar site targeting TalkTalk customers.

Interesting as contention ratios aren't relevant now.

TalkTalk customers in Cheltenham may not agree with you!

Re: Pulsewebnet

A bit of a sparse site with little information available. Hardly inspires confidence.

Re: Pulsewebnet

Indeed.
No Ts&Cs. No registered office. "infrastuture" twice. 0800 number to apply but what about support? Also 0800, geographic rate or premium rate number?

Re: Pulsewebnet

At a quick glance the website looks like Plusnet's website.

More by design than accident I'm sure.
