Terms and conditions for Plusnet residential services

If you're a Plusnet Mobile customer, please see the Plusnet Mobile Terms and Conditions.

If you're a business customer, see our Business Terms and Conditions.

We've made a promise to be a straight talking provider and avoid annoying legal jargon.

We appreciate that these legal bits are boring, and that you want to be using our great services as soon as possible, so we've provided a handy summary of our terms.

In the same way as you won't understand a book from reading just the contents page this summary doesn't set out all our terms, so we'd really like you to read them all. If you find this handy summary says one thing and the terms another, what the terms say is what we've agreed upon.

1. What we provide

We provide the service(s) that you have asked us to provide.

All our services are subject to our Standard Terms and the Price Guide. Package Terms may also apply if you take more than one of the above services.

In addition, each service has its own set of Service Terms:

If you're taking one of our great offers then the relevant Offer Terms will also apply. Details of these will be provided before you receive the service(s).

So to sum up: the Standard Terms (for everyone) + Service Terms (for each service you're taking) + Package Terms (if you take more than one service) + Offer Terms (where applicable) + Price Guide = your very own Terms & Conditions from Plusnet.

Please note that references to paragraphs in this summary are to the paragraphs in the Standard Terms unless otherwise stated.

2. Payment

Sorry but we can't provide our services for free. Unless any Offer Terms apply what we'll charge you is set out in the Price Guide.

Paragraphs 5 and 6 of our Standard Terms provide more details on payment.

3. Cancellation period

If you change your mind about our services within 14 days of signing up you can, in most cases, cancel our agreement. You'll only have to pay for the services you have used and return any equipment. Paragraph 9 of our Standard Terms sets out the details on how to do this. Please note this doesn't apply to Plusnet Protect, BT Sport over Sky or our YouView TV from Plusnet channel packs.

4. Leaving us (or us leaving you)

We don't want you to leave, but paragraph 15 of our Standard Terms sets out how you can do this if you really want to.

If you don't cancel within the 14 day cancellation period, but want to leave in your minimum term, then early termination charges may apply. If you choose to leave us at any time, a cessation fee might be payable (see paragraph 10.1 of the Plusnet Broadband and Fibre Service Terms).

We don't normally do this but we may have to stop or suspend providing your services as set out in paragraph 16 of our Standard Terms.

5. Your responsibility to us

We want you to roam the Internet freely and enjoy our services. To ensure our services operate within the law we do need you to follow certain rules when using our services as set out in paragraph 2 of our Standard Terms and the relevant provisions of the Service Terms.

6. Our responsibility to you

We take responsibility for providing you with quality services and equipment. However, there are certain circumstances in which this responsibility to you is limited or excluded as set out in paragraph 12 of our Standard Terms and the relevant provisions of the Service Terms. These are important paragraphs and we really recommend you read them in full.

7. Changes we can make

We know you don't want to read them again but we'll sometimes need to change these terms. We'll normally let you know when we do this (see paragraph 18 of our Standard Terms). If the change is materially disadvantageous to you then you may be able to end our agreement without charge.

8. Your information

We take how we use your information very seriously. Details on the information we collect to provide our services and how we use it are set out in our Privacy Policy.

Other useful documents

We've tried to keep these terms as short as possible, but equally we don't want to keep you in the dark as to how we'll provide you with our services. We've produced the following guides and policies that may help if your queries aren't covered by these terms:

Although we'll follow these guides and policies in most cases we ask you to appreciate the world is an ever changing beast so we might not always be able to meet the standards in these guides and policies and, unlike the terms, these guides and policies aren't part of our agreement.

The Full Monty

Our full terms and conditions are set out below, and are made up of different sections.

The Standard Terms apply to everyone and then each service has its own set of Service Terms, so you can just look at the ones that are relevant to you.

If you take more than one service, the Package Terms may also apply. If you're taking one of our great offers, some extra Offer Terms will apply (as our offers change we’ll tell you about these separately).

1. What we provide

1.1. We'll provide you with your chosen service, content and any equipment we agree to provide. The Price Guide and following terms shall apply:

1.1.1. these Standard Terms;

1.1.2. the relevant Service Terms; and

1.1.3. any Offer Terms (if applicable when you signed up).

1.2. Where you take more than one service the Package Terms may also apply.

2. Your use of the services

2.1. You must:

2.1.1. provide access to your property or a neighbouring property where this is necessary for us to provide the services;

2.1.2. look after any equipment we provide (for example replacing batteries and ensuring it doesn't get eaten by the dog);

2.1.3. use the services for personal use in the UK (so don't use the services to run your own business, but a couple of work emails or occasional home working are okay) and in accordance with our Acceptable Use Policy;

2.1.4. not copy, change or publish any material we produced or own (normally marked with a ©) or use it for any business purpose;

2.1.5. only connect safe equipment to our network that won't harm it or our other customers' equipment;

2.1.6. keep all passwords secure and confidential, and not make them available to other people; and

2.1.7. agree that we have the right to modify any digital content we provide (for example to update the software in your router). Modifications will be of the same quality and description.

3. Our provision of the services

3.1. To protect our network and to provide a quality service, we may have to restrict your use of our services or equipment where:

3.1.1. it may have a harmful effect on the experience of other users (for instance if you're sending spam messages or hosting a commercial website);

3.1.2. your equipment has been infected by computer viruses; or

3.1.3. it's necessary to stop the spread of any virus within either your equipment or our network.

3.2. To make changes to technical specifications we may have to interrupt the service(s) but we'll restore it as quickly as we can.

4. When our agreement, the service and the minimum term starts

4.1. Our agreement starts when we accept your order (normally by sending you an email).

4.2. The relevant Service Terms, Package Terms or Offer Terms set out when the service and any minimum term commences. We'll let you know the length of your minimum term when you sign up and/or we accept your order.

5. Paying for the services

5.1. For most of our services we'll charge you a standard monthly fee (what we call a subscription charge). In some cases additional fees linked to how much you use the service, such as the number of calls you make (what we call usage charges) also apply. You'll also have to pay any additional charges detailed in these terms, the relevant Offer Terms or the Price Guide that may become due.

5.2. We'll normally bill you monthly in advance for any subscription charges. For usage charges we'll try to bill you at the end of the month in which you used the relevant service (but sometimes there may be a delay from the point you used the service before we add usage charges to your bill).

5.3. We won't charge you for the period after you've signed-up but before you're service is up and running (but we may take payment for your first month's service when you sign up with us, in advance of your service being up and running).

5.4. You may see your bills within your online account and we'll email you when a new bill is available to view. You must pay the bill as soon as you receive the email that your bill is available.

5.5. We would like you to pay by Direct Debit, if you don't you'll have to pay an additional charge as set out in our Price Guide.

6. If you fail to pay

6.1. If you don't pay your bill, we'll remind you (for example by calling or interrupting your broadband service). If we still don't receive payment we may:

6.1.1. add a late payment charge as set out in the Price Guide to your bill (but normally only if we don't receive payment within 10 days of our reminder);

6.1.2. suspend providing the service or end our agreement. We normally won't do this until 14 days after your bill was available to view (please note paragraph 16.3 may apply); or

6.1.3. as a last resort, ask a debt-collection agency to collect the payment on our behalf. If we do, you'll also have to pay the reasonable costs we have to pay the agency, which the agency will add to your debt on our behalf.

6.2. For further details on steps we might take under paragraph 6.1, see our Billing Guide.

6.3. If any payment method fails we may add a failed payment charge as set out in the Price Guide to your next bill.

6.4. The charges set out in this paragraph 6 are not subject to VAT.

7. Credit threshold

7.1. We set a credit threshold on your usage charges, but you can change this.

7.2. We'll only calculate your usage charges every 24 hours, so you may go over your credit threshold due to your usage in this 24 hour period and you'll still have to pay for all usage charges incurred in this period.

8. Engineer visits

8.1. We'll agree an estimated appointment date for engineer visits and will contact you a minimum of two working days in advance if this changes. You can change or cancel any appointment date but you must give us at least two working days' notice.

8.2. We may charge you, as set out in the Price Guide, for any engineer visit if:

8.2.1. you provide an incorrect address;

8.2.2. entry is refused to the premises, or access cannot be gained by the engineer;

8.2.5. there is no responsible adult present who is authorised by you to make decisions or answer questions necessary to fix the faults;

8.2.6. when you cancel a request for an engineering visit later than two working days' before the appointment date;

8.2.7. if we could have fixed the issue without sending an engineer if you'd had the ability to connect to the router with wired (Ethernet) connection; or

8.2.8. an engineer arrives at the premises to carry out the work you requested, but you no longer wish the work to be carried out.

9. Cancellation period

9.1. Unless our Service Terms say otherwise, we provide you with a 14 calendar day cancellation period which starts:

9.1.1. for services, on the day after we accepted your order; or

9.1.2. for any equipment, on the day after we delivered it.

9.2. If you cancel any services within this cancellation period you must:

9.2.1. pay for any services received up to the date that you told us you wanted to cancel;

9.2.2. pay any installation, connection or activation charges associated with that service (including the full cost of charges that were discounted or advertised as free as a condition of taking services on the terms that you agreed); and

9.2.3. return any equipment we have provided as set out in paragraph 9.5 below.

9.3. If you just ordered equipment and cancel within the cancellation period, paragraph 9.2 doesn't apply but you must return any equipment to us as set out in paragraph 9.5 below.

9.4. If the service you signed-up for is a product change, a re-contract or add-on, upon cancelling the service we may move you back to your previous agreement or the closest matching service.

9.5.1. you must return the equipment to us (undamaged and in its original packaging) within 14 days of telling us you want to cancel, at your own cost; and

9.5.2. we'll refund anything you have paid for the equipment less an appropriate amount (up to the full value of the refund) where the equipment is damaged or has been used more than necessary to check it.

9.6. If you don't return the equipment within 14 days of cancelling you'll have to pay the full price of the equipment. If you subsequently return the equipment to us, we'll waive or return what you have been charged for the equipment.

10. Returning faulty equipment

10.1. You must return any item of equipment that either:

13.1.2. we suspend your service in accordance with our agreement or you're in breach of any term of the agreement;

13.1.3. through no fault on our part, we are unable to carry out any necessary work on your premises (for example where we can't gain access to your premises, agree an appointment date or obtain all assistance or information that we require from you); or

16. Our right to suspend your service or end our agreement

16.1. We can suspend or stop providing our services and/or end our agreement where:

16.3. If we suspended the services we may charge a line restriction fee as set out in the Price Guide.

16.4. Unless the reason we end our agreement is because we are we are no longer providing the service to customers as set out in paragraph 16.1.10 and you're within the minimum term you'll have to pay an early termination charge as set out in the Price Guide.

18. Changing these terms or our services

18.1. We may change the price, or other charges, the service or the terms of our agreement:

19. Other things we need to tell you

Postal notices will be deemed to be received two working days after being sent.

19.4. Unenforceable terms: Each of the paragraphs and sub-paragraphs of our agreement operate separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs and sub-paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

19.5. Delays: If we delay in taking any steps under our agreement against you in respect of you breaking our agreement, that doesn't prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

19.7. Laws and courts that apply: English law applies to our agreement and claims between us will be brought in the English courts (unless you're a resident of Northern Ireland or Scotland when you may also bring proceedings in the appropriate local courts).

1. When these terms apply

1.2.1. dependent on the core service and you agreeing to a new minimum term for the core service to receive the additional service; or

1.2.2. provided for a single monthly charge covering both the additional and core services (usually at a discount compared to the total price of the same services taken individually),

we provide them under one agreement, subject to these terms as a package (what we call a package contract).

1.3. Not all services can be taken as part of a package. Any other services we provide that are not part of your package will be provided under a separate agreement and are subject to the relevant Service Terms, the Standard Terms, any Offer Terms and the Price Guide (we call these add-ons).

8.2. You'll be charged a pro rata amount for each service in your package that is ready to use from the date each service is up and running.

9. Changing your package

9.1. In addition to changes set out in the table at paragraph 3.2, if you:

9.1.1. upgrade any of the services in your package;

9.1.2. move to a new package as part of a promotion or special offer; and/or

9.1.3. request a new router or set top box,

you may have to start a new package contract covering all services with a new minimum term and with potentially different terms (for example the price you pay for each element of your package may vary).

9.2. If you ask us to remove services from your package, and your remaining services are unavailable as part of a package, you'll have to take each remaining service on a new standalone contract.

10. Moving home

10.1. If you move home, the moving home sections of the applicable Service Terms shall apply and if we can't provide all the services at your new address, the remaining services must be taken on a new package contract (with a new minimum term). If the remaining services can't be taken as a package, they must be taken on standalone contracts (with new minimum terms).

11. Ending your package contract

11.1. If you end your entire package contract during the minimum term you'll have to pay the early termination charges for the relevant services within your package, as set out in the Price Guide.

11.2. If you move any of your services to another provider but carry on taking other services in your package from us, we'll end your package contract. Where we can continue to provide remaining service we'll do so but you'll have to take the remaining services on a new package contract covering those services or if they cannot be taken as a package on new standalone contracts.

11.3. The consequences of terminating certain services within your package are summarised in the table at paragraph 3.2

These terms apply where you take either broadband or fibre broadband services (both of which we call the service unless we are referring to the fibre or broadband service specifically).

1. What we provide

1.1. We'll provide you with access to the Internet, helpdesk services, and any other equipment, applications and features as described at www.plus.net/broadband.

2. What you need

2.1. To get the services you need:

2.1.1. a working phone service that passes a minimum line speed test that we'll perform;

2.1.2. a compatible phone line (as we cannot provide our service if your phone provider uses their own network and, even if the provider uses BT's network like us, we may still not be able to provide the service for example if they have their own equipment in your local exchange);

2.1.3. some compatible equipment (for example a router). However, we'll normally provide this;

2.1.4. to be in a fibre enabled area (we can do a preliminary check if you provide your postcode to us) if you want to take our fibre broadband service; and

2.1.5. to be able to connect to our services via a wired (Ethernet) connection so we can help fix any faults you may have.

3. Installation

3.1. You may have to install some equipment at your home. This will normally involve following the user guides we provide to you.

3.2. A set up charge as set out in the Price Guide may apply and if you request an engineer to visit where it isn't necessary, we may also charge you for this as set out in the Price Guide.

3.3. If you take our fibre broadband service it may be necessary for an engineer to perform some installation works away from your home (for example at the green cabinet in the street) which may mean your phone line and existing broadband will be disconnected for a short period.

4. Quality of service

4.1. We aim to provide a continuous, high-quality service, but we can't be responsible for:

4.1.1. slow speeds due to external factors (except as set out in paragraph 5 of our Standard Terms);

4.1.2. loss of service due to circumstances beyond our control, where we've taken reasonable steps to prevent this; or

4.1.3. ensuring equipment we provide allows you to get a wireless signal everywhere within your home or delivers the speeds possible over a wired connection wirelessly.

4.2. So that your services are stable and operate efficiently, we may take action to manage the network's performance during periods where there is a high demand and prioritise particular types of Internet traffic (please see our About Broadband Traffic Prioritisation Guide for details).

5. Speed

5.1. If 10 days after your service is up and running you're always getting line speeds lower than the estimated line speed range we provided when you signed up, we'll try to improve its speed.

5.2. If, after following our instructions to improve your line speed, it is still significantly lower than the estimated line speed range we quoted on sign up and provided by email, you'll be entitled to end our agreement for the service without paying early termination charges. However, we'll not refund you for your use of our service during the period between the date we got you up and running and you ending our agreement.

5.3. This right is in addition to any other legal rights you may have.

6. When the service and the minimum term starts

6.1. It may take us a while to install or transfer your service, but we'll do this as soon as reasonably possible and we'll aim to keep you updated on when we estimate this will happen.

6.2. Your minimum term starts on the day your service is up and running or your transfer from another provider has completed (we'll normally send you an email to confirm this).

7. Cancellation period

7.1. The service benefits from the cancellation period as set out in paragraph 9 of our Standard Terms.

8. Changing your service

8.1. If you change from our fibre broadband service to our broadband service or vice versa, you'll need to agree to a new minimum term and pay any applicable set-up charges.

8.2. If you downgrade from our fibre broadband to our broadband service and are still within your minimum term, you'll have to pay early termination charges for ending your agreement with us for your fibre broadband service early.

8.3. You can change from one of our fibre broadband services to another or one of our broadband services to another at any time. Any minimum term remaining for your service will be carried forward to your new service and charges will be payable for the new service as found in the Price Guide.

9. Moving home

9.1. If you want to move your broadband or fibre broadband service during your minimum term you may have to pay a home move fee as set out in the Price Guide or enter a new agreement with us with a new minimum term.

9.2. If you have fibre broadband, but we can't provide it at your new home, you can move to our broadband service without penalty.

9.3. If we can't provide any broadband service to your new home, you'll have to pay early termination charges as set out in the Price Guide (but a cessation fee won't be due under paragraph 10.1).

9.4. Other home move charges (such as fees for installing a new line) may also apply as set out in the Price Guide.

10. Ending your agreement

10.1. Where our agreement ends (even after the expiry of any minimum term) you may be charged a "cessation fee" as set out in the Price Guide where:

10.1.1. you cancel your service without transferring providers;

10.1.2. you transfer to a service where: (i) the provider uses their own network to provide the service, or (ii) the provider uses BT's network like us, but they have their own equipment in your local exchange (often called Local Loop Unbundling); or

10.1.3. the phone line used to provide your service is cut off.

10.2. If you choose to end our agreement within the minimum term (except where you're inside the cancellation period set out in paragraph 9 of the Standard Terms), you'll pay early termination charges as set out in the Price Guide.

These terms apply where you take home phone and cover line rental, call plans, call features, and Line Rental Saver.

2. Your use of the service

2.1. If you take this service but don't pay us for calls (either via usage charges or by taking a call plan), or you use a third party to make calls for some or all of your calls over the line we provide, we may decide to:

2.1.1. charge you a higher fee for your use of the service;

2.1.2. end our agreement; and/or

2.1.3. disconnect all or any part of the service.

2.2. If you use any inclusive call plan for more than normal everyday use (for example for telemarketing) we may suspend or end our agreement immediately. In addition, we can on 30 days' notice remove your inclusive call plan.

3. What you need

3.1. To get the services you need:

3.1.1. a phone or similar equipment to use our services; and

These connection charges do not cover extensive new construction works (such as external work). Also for work such as installing or moving a phone socket additional charges as set out in the Price Guide may be payable. However, we'll always aim to advise you of these charges before any work is undertaken.

5. Quality of the service

5.1. We aim to provide a continuous, high-quality service, but we can't be responsible for any loss of service or faults due to circumstances beyond our control, where we've taken reasonable steps to prevent this.

1.3.2. view on-demand content.

2. Channel packs

8. Privacy

8.1. We may use details of any channel content you have previously viewed:

8.1.1. to recommend other content that we believe may be of interest to you. You'll have the ability to opt out of this feature at any time.

8.1.2. to generate statistics to help us improve our service, understand what interests our viewers and to measure how effective our advertising is.

9. Content availability

9.1. We aim to provide a wide range of content, but the nature of the service means we cannot guarantee the availability of any channel, programme or item of on-demand content, in particular:

9.1.1. the quality of the Freeview TV and radio, and the number of channels that you can receive depends on the signal you can get from your local TV transmitter, the quality of your TV aerial and the availability of Freeview in your area. We are not responsible if you cannot receive any Freeview TV and radio for these reasons, for other changes to the Freeview TV and radio service or for the continued broadcast of these channels;

9.1.2. on-demand content is not provided by us as part of the service and is subject to the on-demand provider's own terms and conditions;

9.1.3. although we take precautions, we can't ensure the accuracy or completeness of the interactive content or the electronic programme guide; and

9.1.4. we may have to replace or withdraw any programmes available as part of a channel pack. We'll do this as set out in paragraph 10.

9.2. BT Sport and BT Sport Lite channel packs don't include access to any online content made available by BT via the BT Sport website at www.btsport.com, or on smartphones or tablets via the BT Sport App. These facilities don't form part of the BT Sport channel packs and/or the service. BT Sport Extra channels are available in SD only.

9.3. Sometimes we may choose to give you access to additional content or bonus channels at no extra cost. As these channels or content are not part of the service we can change or withdraw them at any time without prior notice. If we plan to charge for them, we'll tell you in advance, and you'll need to tell us if you want to continue receiving them.

10. Changes to content

10.1.1. vary, add to, replace or withdraw the content on any channels available as part of the channel packs or vary, add to, replace or withdraw any of the channels within a channel pack;

10.1.4. encrypt or decrypt any of the channels within a channel pack,

for any of the following reasons:

10.1.5. the programme content that is available to us changes (for example we gain or lose the right to show particular sporting events);

10.1.6. if the content is provided to us by other broadcasters or organisations, and they stop making the channels or content available generally or to us, or they make changes to the channels or content;

10.1.7. to allow us to change the way that we charge you for certain channels or channel packs or other content (for example when we add new channels);

10.1.8. in our opinion, it is no longer commercially sensible for us to provide that content, channels or channel pack (for example because it has become too expensive for us to buy content for broadcast);

10.1.9. to allow us to provide the service in a way that we consider enhances your viewing experience (for example by adding additional features online or in ultra HD); or

10.1.10. as a result of any change in the law or any regulation or regulatory guidance that is applicable to us.

10.2. Where a change under paragraph 10.1 is due to content or channel packs being withdrawn by the broadcaster or becomes unavailable as part of the service, we may:

10.2.1. offer equivalent, similar or alternative content instead, or

10.2.2. we'll remove or reduce any charge previously payable for that content.

10.3. If any of these changes are to your material disadvantage (even after we've offered replacement content or reduced your charges) you can cancel your service as set out in paragraph 18.3 of the Standard Terms. Where a change only affects an additional channel pack, that is not included as standard as part of the service, then you'll only be able to cancel that channel pack as set out in paragraph 18.3 of the Standard Terms.

11. Other changes we may make

11.1. Use of the service is currently unlimited. However, we may introduce usage limits and additional charges if you go over them. Where this is to your material disadvantage paragraph 18.3 of the Standard Terms shall apply.

11.2. Sometimes we may ask you to do things that we think are necessary to safeguard the security or quality of the service.

11.3. Paragraph 2.1.7 of the Standard Terms applies to the service as we may also make minor changes to certain technical specifications to the service or the set top box.

12. Copyright

12.1. All content provided via the service is owned by or licensed to us and is protected by copyright laws. This doesn't stop you watching or recording the content, or accessing it as set out in these terms but you don't own the content or recordings and can't do any of the things set out in paragraph 3.3.

13. Our right to end or suspend the service

13.1. We may suspend or end the service or access to any content if:

13.1.1. we believe that you're using the service in breach of paragraph 3.3. Here we may supply your name, address and contact details to the owner of any content used improperly (but we'll only do this if they agree to keep this information safe and secure); or

13.1.2. you fail to maintain a working Plusnet fibre broadband service to which the set top box can be connected.

13.2. We may remove any set top boxes, or reception equipment that belongs to us which are being used in commercial premises.

13.3. If we end our agreement for any of the reasons set out in this paragraph during your minimum term, early termination charges as set out in the Price Guide will be due.

14. Moving home

14.1. If you want to move your service, you'll have to move your fibre broadband service as set out in paragraph 9 of the Standard Terms (so you may have to pay a home move fee as set out in the Price Guide or enter a new agreement with us with a new minimum term).

14.2. If you move to an area that means you're no longer able to receive the service and you're still within your minimum term for the service you must:

14.2.1. return your set top box (we'll send you a postage paid returns bag for this), and no early termination charges will be payable; or
