FTTC 40/2 - talk talk now offer 40/10

it is widely thought that plusnet changed their base FTTC package to 40/2 to match and compete with Talk Talk (who also supplied 40/2).

however it appears that Talk Talk have now changed theirs to 40/10.

so will plusnet now use the common sense approach and start offering 40/10?

most would probably be happy with 40/10.
and it was July 15th that talk talk gave everyone a free upgrade to 10Mbps upstream.

Review does not always mean we are going to get things the way we want them to be.

I for one would love 40/10, just my 2p's worth. Roll eyes

me too as I now only get 51/7 with a 3dB noise margin due to cross talk but the price difference would need to make it worth it

there's zero chance in me taking 40/2, so i would either need to leave plusnet or take 80/20.

Re: FTTC 40/2 - talk talk now offer 40/10

40/10 package is currently £88.80 per year. Ofcom propose to lower the price to £66.28 for 2018/2019, £57.00 for 2019/2020 & £52.77 for 2020/2021. Looking at price list 40/2 is £82.80 per year so it's currently only £6 cheaper than 40/10. Under proposed price change 40/10 is the only product which will have it's price reduced so it would make sense for providers to move from 40/2 to 40/10 as the price difference will be much bigger.

Plusnet are now the only one of the main providers left offering a 2mbps upload speed on their cheapest fibre package. BT, SKY, TalkTalk, EE, Vodafone & Origin Broadband all now offer 10mbps upload on their cheapest fibre packages, think it's time Plusnet caught up.
