One of the more popular, but overlooked (especially in terms of government sanctioned DNS blocks) ISPs in the UK, Plus.net, has unveiled some new pricing plans for its broadband packages, with pricing that could really take the fight to some of the bigger firms out there.
The new deal sees Plus.net offering unlimited broadband at up to 16Mb speeds, for just £1.99 a month for the first 12 months of the 18 month contract, after which it will revert to the standard rate of £9.99 for the remaining months. This doesn’t include a £9.99 monthly line rental however. Similarly these prices rise in rural areas, meaning you’ll often end up paying around £9 + line rental. However, this still represents a big saving, as traditionally you’d pay up wards of £17 for this package in remote areas.
The deal applies to fibre packages as well, so if you’re in an area that supports it, you’ll be able to sign up for £11.99 a month + line rental. Speeds are listed as being up to 76Mb.
These deals will be available for the next two days only. So grab them while you can. However if you miss it, there’s a few other companies like TalkTalk and Tesco trying to grab market share as well, so shop around for the best one in your area.
KitGuru Says: It’s refreshing to see competition between companies like this driving prices down, especially when it sits right alongside news that energy companies are unanimously raising theirs.
