I was on an ADSL broadband package for years and I paid like this :
- 12 months line rental saver pa
- Anytime phone package £8 pm
- BB £10.99 pm
- Discount £4.99 pm
My line rental saver was due to expire on 08/04/2020 and this year, it would be ~ £210.
I didn't want the phone package anymore, so I would be paying ~ £23.50 pm
I logged into my account, went to offers & upgrades and saw that I could get the slow 38Mb fibre incl. line rental for ~ £20pm ( can't remember exact amount ). So, I decided to upgrade to fibre instead.
I have now received the first month's bill and there are a bunch of charges which I don't understand. ( See attached )
I understand the £6.99 router p&p charge and £1.90 charge I incurred in making calls but the rest seem mind-boggling.
I called the Billing team and they said my new usual monthly charges would be £30.99 pm , which is not the £20pm I signed up for. I have been told that line rental was excluded when I signed up for the new contract. I didn't take a screenshot at that time unfortunately.
I can see that new customers can get the same package as me for £23.99pm. If I got to my account, the current upgrade offer available to me is £10pm ( See attached ) Who knows if this figure can be trusted!
Additionally, if I go to https://www.plus.net/apps/linerental/saver/portal , I see
" You're already signed up to Line Rental Saver.
This is due to expire on 08-08-2020."
But, I haven't paid for line rental saver this year??!?
To summarize, here are my questions :
- Where's my £20pm Fibre?
- What's with my bill ?
- Is this £10pm figure correct ?
- What is going on with my line rental saver ?
Fixed! Go to the fix.

You are right. My concerns have now been taken care of, thanks to a knowledgeable and helpful member of the Billing team, who kindly helped me with a reasonable monthly charge.
For the rest of you,
DO NOT use the Offers & Upgrades section. It does not show the Line rental. Even if it's £0, that is completely incorrect!
There was a glitch at Plusnet's end. Hence, why the line rental was showing as due for expiry in August. Logging out and back in ( closing windows or restarting PC doesn't help ) cleared this.
