Staying with Plusnet with new offer deal
« on: August 23, 2019, 11:23:37 PM »

Just done it. I have phoned up through Text Relay Service via NGT. Christopher Fraser the agent has offered me 12 months new deal for fibre extra and line only for 25 a month with a discount loyalty of 14.98 off for next 12 months take affect on my next billing date in a 12 months contract plus 50 cashback cheque too as part of the agreement. Only pay 6.01 per month for fibre extra once I have paid upfront line rental saver online next month.

Thanks PN. Going to stayed with PN for next 12 months Smiley just need to add LRS next month online myself with one off payment of 197.88. As I still got LRS expiry until next month.

So, I am happy to staying with FTTC as Kitz metion to me that I am the lucky one with my fibre with solid 80/20 since 2014 and should staying with FTTC and not recommend me to get elsewhere.

So, for now for next 12 months - no more talk for me. :)

I have notice a new change in plusnet account as they updated new current line speed which they have removed before but a slightly bit improvement below:

May I just clarify (in case anyone wondered) why I recommended that you stay with FTTC rather than keep chasing was for several reasons.

1) as speeds are a lot more variable than with fttc.  I was extremely concerned how this would affect your mental health each time there was a change in the connection speed.   There was also some doubt about what speed you could get from the estimates.
2) You currently have one of the best FTTC connections.   You are lucky that you are on a Huawei cab with G.INP and manage to sucessfully sync at the full 80/20.  It does everything you need and more.  Some people would literally kill for that.
3) Financial reasons were a major factor.   In one of your earlier posts you disclosed some personal information (which was later deleted) but to cut to the chase you would be spending a fair amount of additional $ that you could ill afford.

Those who did see that post would immediately realise it would not be in your best interest to even think about recommending G.Fast to anyone in your situation at the current time.  It would be negligent if anyone said otherwise.

There is more to a broadband connection that just being able to brag about connection speed.
I am so glad that you are enjoying actually using your connection by playing your xbox rather than worrying about it.  A few of us (not just me) were deeply concerned that you could have been making a major mistake. 
Please do not PM me with queries for broadband help as I may not be able to respond.
