No charges normally arise with the standard fault repair service. However, Plusnet will make a charge for new and replaced items. If the Customer requests work to repair a fault on items that Plusnet are responsible for maintaining and Plusnet or our suppliers are not able to find a fault, Plusnet will charge the Customer for the visit.

The standard requests for an engineer to visit to perform work, for example moving a socket, is £144 for the first hour and then £72 for each additional hour.

Where we arrange for an engineer to visit the Customer's premises for activation of the service, or for resolution of a fault, the Customer will be responsible for any costs incurred owing to any of the following:

  • an engineer attends an incorrect address as provided by the Customer;
  • the site for installation does not meet the minimum requirements as agreed during the product registration;
  • an engineer arrives to carry out the installation at the address provided by the Customer, but you no longer want the installation completed;
  • entry is refused to the premises, or access cannot be gained, at the appointed time, as agreed between Plusnet and the Customer;
  • the Customer reports a fault, an engineer attends the Customer premises, and discovers the fault is not the result of the service;
  • the Customer reported problem, following request for an engineering visit, cannot be confirmed; and
  • when the Customer cancels a request for an engineering visit later than 48 hours before the scheduled visit.

If the Customer reports a fault and Plusnet finds there is none, Plusnet may apply a charge of £115, plus any additional charges that we incur due to any additional time the engineer has to spend on site or equipment he has had to fit over what they would normally fit.

If a new line or cable transfer is required then a fee of £50 will be charged.

If your contract has expired a new line or cable transfer will be provided free of charge if you start a new 24 month contract.
