New customer joining Plusnet

I am a new customer waiting to change from BT to Plusnet. I am slightly disappointed with all the negative reviews and comments I am reading. I hope it’s a case of people more interested in complaining that I am seeing rather than the people with good experience who don’t take the time to let everyone know the positives. I hope I will not be disappointed as my experience with BT has not been the best. If anyone would like to share the good experience with Plusnet I would be pleased to hear your experience. Regards Brian.

@caney97 Welcome to the forums, Brian.

You will always see more problems than praises on sites like this - if something is working OK, there's little chance of people saying so - people only really post when things aren't right.

You don't have to take my word for it, just have a glance at other support forums - not just broadband ones, but power suppliers, shopping sites &c.

However, if you DO have problems with your PN connection, post in the relevant sub-forum and someone (staff/and or experienced customers) will happily help.

Re: New customer joining Plusnet

Hi Brian,

A warm welcome to the forums.  I’ve been with PlusNET around 16 years.  Others have already made the key points...

  • The majority use the forums as a place to complain about things
  • The technical and business processes required to deliver service are complex and inevitably things do go wrong
  • Many people have little understanding of the under their control which can impact service performance and have unreasonable expectations on the supplier (whoever it is) to be responsible for fixing all issues
  • Connectivity issues are largely not in the hands of any ISP to directly resolve
  • The interfaces to BT's business systems which every ISP use appears to be flaky and error prone leading to frequent human error
  • There is room for improvement in a number of areas... especially call answering times ... though if BT made fewer errors, there would be fewer calls - from experience any activity involving BT has required a minimum of 3 support calls - the vast bulk of the necessity to contact support arises out of a BT failure
  • When the phone is answered invariably the person answering can fix the issue there and then
  • If they can’t recourse to these forums usually brings about a resolution - with from staff or a customer
