Plusnet Price and Product Change FAQ - New Customers

On 5th June 2018 we'll be making a few changes to our prices. If you sign up between the 4th March 2018 and 4th June 2018 you will not be affected by any price increase to your broadband product (unless you re-contract or change your product before the 5th June).

Here's a handy FAQ that covers everything you need to know.

Over the past year we've been working really hard to make improvements to our products and services that will make your experience as a Plusnet customer better than ever.

We've continued to win awards for our customer services and our great value products and we promise we'll continue to do you proud.

Investing in our customer service to make sure we're available to answer your calls or chats at our UK call centres is a priority for us. We'll soon be expanding one of our UK sites to make sure we're on hand when you need us the most.

Which services are affected?

These changes apply to our call charges, call features, call set up fees and early termination charges. They will come into effect from the 5th June 2018 and you'll see these changes on your first bill.

You'll be happy to know that the call feature, Caller Display which helps you to avoid nuisance calls, will be made free of charge.

What changes are being made to call features?

Good news, the only change we are making to our call features is to make Caller Display free of charge from the 5th June 2018.

If you sign up prior to the 5th June you can pre-register for free Caller Display, or you can add the call feature now for a fee of 99p per month up until the 5th June 2018 when this becomes free.

If you add Caller Display as part of your bundled features you will be automatically moved onto a lower bundle so that you are not paying for a free of charge feature. For example if you are on a three for £4.50 per month bundle with Caller Display being one the features you will be moved to the two for £3.00 per month bundle.

Want to add Caller Display?

You can pre-register for free Caller Display now:

From 5th June 2018 it will be added onto your account.

What changes are being made to phone charges?
