Plusnet Drops Price Of Broadband To £3.24

BT-owned broadband company Plusnet has slashed the monthly price of its residential service by half to £3.24 which is a penny cheaper than its nearest rival, TalkTalk.

What's more, while the latter is sticking to this price for nine months, the Yorkshire-based internet service provider has extended it to a whole year with the price of the line rental even lower than TalkTalk.

But while you could be saving more than £17 over a year, some may prefer Talktalk because it offers four times the monthly download allowance (40GB vs 10GB).

Plusnet allows you to download as much as you want between midnight and 8am which is fine for scheduled downloads but useless for streaming or casual browsing (unless you are a night bird).

Plusnet also chargest a £25 broadband activation charge with a fiver for the wireless router but the charge is free if you add one phone package to the order.

Speaking of calls, both offer unlimited evening and weekend calls but Plusnet is the only one of the two that offers broadband without the need for an annual contract.

Note that the offer is available until the 5th of October and Plusnet prices will be higher if the user lives outside a so-called low cost area.
