I recently switched to a new contract with Plusnet for Unlimited Fibre and Line Rental (with Unlimited UK & Mobile calls). Previously my line rental was with BT and I only had ADSL broadband with Plusnet.
Today I received an email to say that I would be billed soon but the amount is a lot more than I was expecting.
I checked the broken-down charges on the latest bill (dated 28/06/19) and it contains TWO entries for "Line Rental" and TWO entries for "Unlimited UK & Mobile". This makes no sense.
Take a look at this ticket (below) logged against my account on May 31st. How can I be charged twice in June for a service that only went live on the last day of May?
Service Notice #416681760
The customer was mailed the following message to address(es) (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com):
Subject: Home Phone - Your service is ready to use
Home Phone - Your service is ready to use
Congratulations, your Plusnet Home Phone service is now ready to use!
Your telephone number is: 0xxxxxxxxxx
Fixed! Go to the fix.
I'm sorry to see your latest bill is incorrect.
Unfortunately it looks like we've incorrectly added on and worked out pro-rata charges on this occasion.
We can't adjust the invoice amount as it's currently pending however as soon as it has cleared I'll make sure we refund the overcharges back to your bank account which should then reach you within 5 to 10 working days.
Apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
Re: Unexpected items on bill.
Thanks for investigating my problem and sorting out a refund.
Obviously I will keep this question open until my next bill, just to make sure that the billing department apply the refund that you have requested.
