Plusnet used to be so good and now its terrible!

Aaarrgghh, Plusnet used to answer the phones almost immedately (I only had to call once when I was first getting everything set up) and they were brilliant!  But I have just had to wait over 30 minutes to get through. 
AllI wanted to do was update my direct debit details.
I tried to do it online but kept getting software error.  Apparently these errors are important to Plusnet.  Clearly not that important.  I tried three times and thee times it crashed.
Meanwhile I was still holding and holding, waiting and waiting and being assailed by terrible 80s soft rock musik.
Tried the virtual assistance for an email address to complain to.  Another waste of time.
Then got really bored and signed up for this forum. 
Finally, after 32 minutes the phone was answered but by now I am concerned with how the customer service has deteriorating and instead of changing my debit details I asked when my contract ended so I can move to a new provider.  I need a new You View box and while I hear TalkTalk have the worst customer service, it can't be worst that what I have just experienced with PlusNet.
Such a shame because it was once so friendly and efficient.
Thanks for the memories!  Sad

This is probably why I'm leaving too.
Note I dont think you can record with the Talk Talk YouView box, you can only do catch up TV. It's also confusing with BT who seem to have a YouView box and an older Vision + box which result in different costs and functions.
