Plusnet offers £50 cashback with Unlimited Broadband

Thursday, November 2nd 2017 by Oprah Flash

Plusnet is offering £50 cashback when you order its basic broadband package.

The provider's Unlimited Broadband package is £19.99 a month for 12 months. Plusnet has also dropped the activation fee and sweetened the deal with the £50 cashback offer.

You can take advantage of this deal by signing up by Tuesday 14 November.

Plusnet says this package, which offer speeds up to 17Mbps, is “ideal for everyday streaming, web browsing and general internet use”.

The £50 cashback comes in the form of a cheque. Once your broadband and home phone is activated, you will receive an email with some instructions.

After you have followed the guidelines given in the email the cheque will be sent to you through the post. You'll have two months after receiving the email in which to claim your £50 cashback.

During the same period the Unlimited Fibre package, which gives you speeds up to 38Mbps, costs £24.99 throughout your first year with an additional one-off £15 activation fee.

This gives you faster speeds and the connection should be more reliable as its fibre, but the £50 cashback is only being offered on the lower package.

For the biggest broadband package that Plusnet offers, its £29.99 for Unlimited Fibre Extra, which gives you download speeds of 76Mbps, on a 12-month contract and a one-off £15 set-up fee.

If you’re thinking of switching to Plusnet but need a phone line installed in your home, there will be an additional charge of £49.99.

If you're signing up to an 'up to 17Mbps' broadband package, be aware that the speed you actually receive will depend on how far you live from your nearest telephone exchnage as well as a number of other factors - but in most cases it will still be fast enough for you to carry out basic internet tasks such as checking emails, browsing and streaming.

Netflix requires a minimum of 5Mbps to stream in HD quality. BBC iPlayer says you should have a connection of at least 1.5Mbps and Amazon Prime uses at least 900Kbps.

Plusnet’s price for new sign ups brings it in line with some of its main competitors.

Origin’s Unlimited Broadband package is £18.49 a month on a 12-month contract and there are no set-up costs.

TalkTalk is offering download speeds of up to 17Mbps for £18.95 a month. This is also on a 12-month contract but is part of a Black Friday deal that ends at midnight tonight.

Sky also seems to be in a giving mood as it has added a £50 giftcard to its broadband packages as well.

SSE’s package is slightly different. It offers the same up to 17Mbps speeds and free set-up for £21 a month but is available with no fixed-term contract and a promise of no price hikes for the first three years.
