Plusnet is a Yorkshire-based internet service provider that’s proud of its regional heritage, and promotes itself as being straightforward and affordable.
BT-owned but independently run, Plusnet offers a range of broadband deals, some of which include phone and/or TV. If you decide to get both your landline and broadband from Plusnet, you’ll get a reduced monthly broadband rate for as long as you keep your phone service with them.
Do bear in mind, though, that as with most providers, you’ll need to pay line rental on top of your monthly broadband tariff.
The cream of the Plusnet crop is its superfast fibre optic broadband service. Unlimited Fibre Extra gives you download speeds of up to 76 Mbit/s and, like all their packages, includes unlimited downloads with no usage limits. Unlimited Fibre is cheaper, but offers slower speeds (up to 38 Mbit/s).
If you don’t need the speeds that fibre optic broadband offers – or if fibre connections aren’t available where you live – then Plusnet offers an ADSL connection that provides up to 17 Mbit/s.
