Beware Of PlusNet Broadband (Follow up Part 6)

If you are looking for a new Broadband Provider or your first Broadband Provider and live in the UK then Beware Of PlusNet Broadband.

After trying Customer Services solution of changing the WiFi Channel that the router is set to use didn't solve our problem of random disconnection from the Internet I decided not to get back onto Plusnet Customer Services, instead I went to my local PC World and bought the NetGear WN1000RP Universal Range Extender, so far since using it we've not suffered any random disconnection and we’re thinking of getting a second one for upstairs as the signal in the living room has increased 20% since using it compared to what it was when relying on the NetGear Netgear DGN2200 Router alone.

Since I started this series of posts Plusnet have released an Unlimited Broadband plan for £9.99 a month on a 12 month contract or £12.49 a month with no contract.  We’ve taken up the Broadband Unlimited plan for £9.99 a month as it seems good value for money, and I’m going to see if we get any nasty surprises at the end of the month as Plusnet aren’t displaying any small print about a Fair Usage Policy on their website for  the Broadband Unlimited Plan.

I’ll update this series at the end of the month with my findings on the Plusnet Broadband Unlimited plan.

So in closing Beware Of PlusNet Broadband.
