Ordering a replacement router

I have had the same router since I switched to Plusnet (2011/12)and it has become increasingly glitchy with WiFi and connection - I am trying to order a replacement but could not find anything on the website.

Re: Ordering a replacement router

When your contracts due for renewal you can usually request one for free. Suggest you look at an OPENREACH one on E Bay; they can be configured to PN settings, and are better performers, especially in wifi department.

Lots of us have bought used BT HH6, about £15-£20 on Gumtree etc, works great on Plusnet with excellent setup guide on this forum. Certainly huge improvement on 2012 PN router which is long outdated.

@CapGrumpy  Don't even think of buying a replacement from Plusnet, they will charge a stupid price. The BT HH6 is a good suggestion available for not very much.

Re: Ordering a replacement router

It's always worth asking. You've been with them 10 years!

I asked (though to be fair I've been around even longer) and got a replacement for the cost of P&P, no need to re-contract!

I *only* got a Hub One but that's fine and does what I need. In fact for me it's better that a Hub Two (BT HH6 in drag)!

I had in fact been using a "hacked" BT HH5A (it was failing) for a while which is almost exactly what a Hub One is so the switch was a doddle!
