Plusnet Premium vs Extra - whats the difference?

I'm on a Market 1 exchange, and on a legacy residential package  "Plusnet Premium" and pay 19.99 pm.
Should I save 2 quid and move to the 17.99 Extra package.
Obvioulsy I cant compare the two packages through the http://portal.plus.net/support/broadband/speed_guide/traffic_management.shtml page,
Anyone know differences?
Thanks

Looks like the biggest difference is losing 20GB per month

Unfortunately the data for legacy products in that tool still needs an update. Speeds for most products changed (for the better) alongside the recent product refresh and we haven't caught up yet. We've asked for clarification of a couple of changes (not related to these products).
I'm fairly sure the only difference between legacy Plusnet Premium (note not Premier) and current Plusnet Extra is a £2 reduction in monthly cost and 20GB reduction in peak time bandwidth. Peak times are the same. Plusnet Extra can have the Pro Add-on applied (at extra cost) whereas that is not available on Plusnet Premium.
Up to date details for Plusnet Premium are given here.
Download speed information for Plusnet Extra is given by expanding the appropriate section of this page.

There is no difference in the traffic management matrix for Premium and Extra
No brainer... save myself the 2 quid then.
Looks like I can save my father about £8 on his account too if he changes (Market 3 exchange now) products.
