    Do not use Plusnet! They are absolute liars, they do not get back to you when they promise to do so, they take over 20 mins to get through to on the phone every time and sometimes a lot longer. I’ve had to wait 25 days to get connected to broadband after my move. And no mobile signal in my area unless in the garden. Do yourself a favour and go with BT! I certainly will as soon as my contract is up. I don’t want to give this bunch of cowboys another £ more!

    While plusnet has good reviews, they are yet to offer FTTP. If you have FTTP like I do (no copper anymore) then you will need try someone else.(which is strange since they are part of BT and BT clearly offer the same). Sales said sometime in 2022 but could not tell me when.
    PS It would be good if this sites like this modernised to include FTTP and broadband only deals.

    These reviews are too kind. Plusnet are 100% a scam company. They are very clever not useless like they portray. They break your internet then make you pay. They never refund for the time it was broken. They will steal your money, over charge you or trick you into late payment charges. They restrict your internet without you knowing in very suspicious ways, eg. I could only watch you tube. But at the same time i diddnt have enough internet to do a speed check? Right now im trying to cancel my account. I have no contract with them, but they tell me it will take 14 days to cancel. They want to get past another payment date so they can take money. When i argue about the 14 days they tell me its in my contract! I DONT HAVE A CONTRACT. Stay away these guys are the source of mental illness.

    Speed is very low even with fiber = 1Mb/s upload and 10 Mb/s download.
    The company cut my contract because my neighbour asked for internet and openreach + plusnet just took my line. They offer me to start from scratch, pay fees upfront to open a new line etc. Just a joke. Cheap but be aware.

    What a bunch of Cowboys. Horrible service and horrible people. I cancelled within 14 days and now I'm getting threatening emails about debt collection agencies if I don't pay circa £250.........

    Do not use as it is so slow its beyond a joke. The routers stop working and reset but send it to an email you dont have to log in. No customer service at the weekends and very upset children in my house. I'm going to have to find a new provider who can start asap

    Don't bother.
    They will make promises they don't keep. Then when u complain all you get is argumentative staff and don't get your complaint resolved. Customer service at its worst

    Usually plus net are helpful however the reliability of the service really isn’t great at all - constantly dropping out despite being on fibre!
    Honestly going to hunt for a more realisable provider I think

    literally don’t waste your time like no offence but it took a bloody week to set up, had to change all our dns settings because plus-net wants to be quirky and difficult and now i can’t watch a video without it loading every 2 minutes. absolutely obnoxious. not satisfied.
