How old are these PlusNet charges?

Just came across this info in an old file:
ADSL Professional
ISP: PlusNet
Install Cost: £260
Monthly Charge: £80
Quarterly Charge: £240
Yearly Charge: £960
All prices exclude VAT and 1 year contract
You may chose FREE install and pay £320 per quarter
24 hour technical support
This is part of a PlusNet promo comparing PlusNet with seven other providers
PS ....and 20:1 contention is 'expected'

Hi there,
Could you let me know where you found this information and we'll be able to contact them to correct their information.
It sounds like a very old business product (circa 2000) which we used to offer in the day when ADSL services cost an absolute fortune.

Hi James
It's actually a print from www.plus.net/info/professional_product.html
I was just thinking how times have changed.

Absolutely.  I remember when I was working for PIPEX in 2002, they were selling a 2Mbps product for £220/mth.
That webpage 404's for me, interestingly.  Or were you looking on something like archive.org?

Re: How old are these PlusNet charges?

Sorry James
Yes it will 404 as it's as I said, a print from that page when it existed...a hard copy in American Sci-Fi parlance.
If the Moderators will allow......
BT Openworld monthly charge quoted at £99.99
Demon....£95
Freeserve (remember them) £99.99
Easynet £79
ITG/Concentric £99
IOMart ?  £110
Nildram £110 inc VAT

No I wasn't but I have used archive.org before...the stats about that site are staggering. The amount of data they store and the rate that it grows...unbelievable

Never mind if the moderators will allow it - can you attach a scan of the page? Grin

Do I win a PlusNet mug for these?

Re: How old are these PlusNet charges?

The ethernet option was considered professional with a better contention ratio etc (my cost calcs are the same as the OP's) which is probably why it was double!

So am I young shaver.
Me and PlusNet go back further than those 'ancient' pages.

Re: How old are these PlusNet charges?

I think Kelly goes back about as far as that too Smiley
I'm just a whippet at 2004/6 (depending on whose argument you buy).
