Plusnet Business Broadband
Cost-effective, dependable and quality connectivity to enhance your business' performance - whether you're a home worker, SME or more established company.
From packages with included monthly usage, to unlimited packages with no restrictions, our up to 18Mb broadband lets you run all your business-critical applications reliably online.
Up to 18Mb speeds†
Whether you're switching to us, or a broadband newbie, we'll give you the fastest broadband speed that your telephone line can comfortably handle. That's why we say our speeds are 'up to'.
Your speeds are determined by...
- Distance from telephone exchange:
- Phone lines can be several miles long, from the exchange to an address. Shorter phone lines can support higher speeds. So, the shorter the phone line the faster the speed. We'll always give you the best possible speed that your line can happily support.
- Quality of your telephone line:
- Phone lines are made of copper. Damaged, corroded copper, or poor connections between cables means slower broadband speeds.
- Bad weather, electrical interference from household appliances and demand at peak times can also affect speeds.
Flexible contract options
There's a choice of 1,12 and 24 month contract options to suit your needs. Take the 24 month contract to enjoy our lowest monthly price, or pay a little more for your subscription and get the freedom and flexibility of a monthly option.
We'll supply our latest easy setup wireless router worth £40 (P&P £4.99 + VAT). It's simple to use. Just plug it in and follow the included setup guide - it'll automatically connect to the internet for you.
Prefer to use your own router? No problem. Most broadband routers should work - unless they're locked to another provider's network. However, we do recommend that you use the router that we supply.
UK-based Business Support available 24/7
Our most technically skilled and customer-focused staff join our dedicated Business Support Team. Whether it's phone or online help you need, you'll get an expert to answer your query or take personal ownership of your problem.
We don't stick to scripts - our team are encouraged to talk to you as real people. Building relationships with our customers is important to us, that's why Plusnet has won industry awards for exceptional Customer Service.
Unlimited∞ broadband available
For many businesses reliable 24/7 connectivity is critical. And, if you're a demanding internet user you'll always be keeping one eye on your costs.
Our unlimited affordable broadband packages can cope with the heaviest, bandwidth-intensive activities in your office. As there's no monthly download limit or extra charges to worry about, you won't receive any large bills, making it easy to budget for each month.
Choose your usage allowance
Business Broadband comes with a 25GB monthly usage allowance – so it's ideal for light office use (e.g. daily emailing, browsing and some video calls and file transfers). If you use all your monthly allowance and need extra usage, you can easily buy more via our website.
If you're a more demanding or cost conscious user, why not go unlimited? Not only will our unrestricted service comfortably cope with multiple users online at the same time, there's no limits or extra usage charges too. That's great news if you're budgeting.
We intelligently manage our network and back it up with high quality infrastructure. This makes sure that all our customers get the very best quality broadband experience. Priority is given to time-sensitive and interactive traffic, so your important VoIP, video calls, VPN and browsing work properly, even when there's lots of people in your office all online at once.
Along with dedicated bandwidth our network has spare capacity too - so it's fully scalable and future-proof.
Value added services
Included with all our broadband packages, Plusnet SafeGuard filters inappropriate web content - so you decide what your business can see.
- Onine control - no downloads or updates needed
- Quick and easy to set up and use
- A large range of categories to block
- Allow access to safe websites
Activate SafeGuard when you sign up, or at any time afterwards by visiting your control panel in the Member Centre. Then, just change the settings to the level of protection you need.
The Annex-M add-on allows users on ADSL2+ (in Annex M enabled exchanges) to potentially receive up to 2.5Mbps upstream, by sacrificing a small amount of available downstream bandwidth.
Ideal where upstream speeds are key to your business.
Lines on older 20CN/ADSL1 exchange equipment benefit from an increase in upload speed from 448kbps to up to 832kbps. Traffic is also prioritised to minimise the potential for congestion within the BT Wholesale network.
Those on newer 21CN/ADSL2+ exchange equipment, who already benefit from up to 1.3Mbps upload speeds, receive a higher quality of service. This ensures low latency and reduces the potential for things to slow when the BT Wholesale network gets busy.
Prioritised service is perfect for businesses that rely on time sensitive applications like VoIP, video conferencing and VPN and want to safeguard from congestion at their local exchange.
With Enhanced Care, any faults a customer reports are prioritised by our support team, then fixed and closed within 24 hours (Monday-Friday, 8am-8pm). This includes out-of-hours engineer repair work, where necessary.
Essential for businesses which would be seriously impacted by a fault.
Here's the legal bit
∞Plusnet's Unlimited broadband network is designed to provide enough capacity for all our customers and so you will generally be able to achieve the fastest possible speed your line will allow. We don't limit your line speed, usage or downloads. If you or your family are trying to do more online than your line speed will allow, we prioritise the traffic in your home. In this situation we will ensure time sensitive uses, like video calls or the latest must-see box set speed along whilst software downloads, which aren't time critical, can carry on more slowly in the background. You get the quality of service you need to enjoy all the advantages the Internet brings. Click here for more details.
