1. Into online gaming? Weve got big news for you
If youre into online gaming weve got a new product that might be
right up your street. Last month we launched Broadband Your Way Pro. Pro
is a fast and reliable broadband product that prioritises all gaming and
VoIP traffic, ensuring it always has the highest priority on our network.
That means that you will experience low latency and ping times whenever
you are gaming.
To celebrate the launch of BBYW Pro were hosting a LAN party here
in Sheffield. If you want the chance to frag each other (and some PlusNet
staff too!) then have a look at this blog on the Community site.
2. Now earn even more for recommending a friend
Tell your friends about PlusNet and now you can get up to £30 if they
join us. You will now receive a one-off payment of up to £20 for every new
broadband customer you recommend. If they take our Home Phone Anytime+
package too, youll receive a further £10.
Youll also receive a monthly discount on your subscription for
every person you recommend - and remember, there is no limit to how much
money you can make. Read more about this offer.
PC Award Winners
Custom PC have just held their annual awards and have awarded us with
the Best Internet Service Provider award. Read more about the award and
the magazine on our Community site.
The results of last months customer satisfaction survey show that
63.4% of respondents were either very satisfied or extremely
satisfied. This shows an increase over the past 5 months and reinforces
our commitment to offering you the best service in the industry. For full
details of the survey and a break down of all the results take a look at this blog post.
4. The future of the web whats coming up?
This week we sent some of the guys from PlusNet HQ down to London for
the FOWA (Future of Web Apps) conference. This provided us with a great
opportunity to see whats up and coming in the industry and what
technologies we should all be looking out for. Its also a great chance to
spot an early candidate for the new Facebook or YouTube. By keeping on top
of industry happenings we are able to ensure that our platform continues
to develop to handle whatever the web throws at us.
If you want to learn more about the event and what you can expect
to see on the web in the future have a read of our new Innovation and the Internet blog post.
