Moving from Plusnet

Thinking of moving from Plusnet after several years but have a Plusnet Youview box with many hours of recorded programmes. These recordings are not from Plusnet Internet channels but the mainstream free-to-air channels.

If I move suppliers does this mean that I have to return the Youview box? or can I pay a fee to retain the box for future use?

Any help would be appreciated..

If you move to BT and take up their BT TV product, a factory reset (retaining recordings) on your existing YouView+ box will make it work with BT. At least that's what happened to me. You don't get BT's 4K channel, but everything else seems to work.

I am just seeing how I stand should I wish to join TrueSpeed which is looking to provide FTTP in our area in the near future.

Ah ok. Those FTTP speeds are pretty nice. Is there a WBC FTTP product showing as available at www.dslchecker.bt.com which you could order through us?

Re: Moving from Plusnet

Yes but your fees are extremely high since it is 'on demand' and any request is treated as a one off.

Truespeed are targeting rural communities in SW England for FTTP and will only install where 30% of community takes up the offer thereby making it cost-effective should it happen.

I don't believe BT are interested in rolling out FTTP, rather than 'FTTP On Demand', generally unless you know otherwise.

Unless I missed a change, Plusnet FTTP customers aren't able to order a TV service, are they?

Re: Moving from Plusnet

That’s a good point @Jaggies I’ll admit I did forget about that. :sad:

Re: Moving from Plusnet

And you both seemed to have missed the point that only FTTP on Demand is available. The OP seems to be talking about a private FTTP provider.
