Line rental confusion

Hi all

My current line rental saver ends on 31.7.16 and my BB contract ends on 6.7.16. If I take a new contract before 6.7.16 and pay line rental saver, will the original LNR end date not be taken into account?

 

In other words, would I be charged for line rental as soon as I renew my contract (before 6.7.16)?

 

Thanks.

Re: Line rental confusion

If you take out a new Line rental saver, it will start when the current one ends. So you shouldn't lose out. Note that the current line saver isn't that much of a saving.

Re: Line rental confusion

Thanks.  And you're definitely sure I wouldn't be charged for line rental until the previous one ends?

 

And re. the cost; I guess it's cheaper than paying it every month and also when compared to other ISPs.

Yes, it will definitely start when the current one expires.

Plusnet allow the renewal up to 3 months before the current one ends so it would be stupid of them to force you to lose those months. Not to say against their T&C's. The only time you forfeit Line Rental Saver is if you leave Plusnet before the end of the 12 month period.

The yearly saving currently is £18 (If I recall correctly)

Re: Line rental confusion

Thanks again. And I spoke to someone on the online chat, and they more or less confirmed what you've said: that the new LRS will start when the previous one expires.
