@cal_ann @Plusnet Use uSwitch via Topcashback. We got £85 back. Were we live the signal is poor whoever we use but our Plusnet was far better than our current Vodafone. We have 3 different providers with 3 different tariffs and speeds. I go for cheapest as it is still double the speed I use now.
@PKBadboy @katie_pilot True. But plusnet’s customer service is absolutely top notch in my opinion. BT us hopeless
@Plusnet It's so frustrating that you guys are not open AT ALL on the weekend from Friday night at 8pm. I mean seriously... that's when more people are free to use their services - and when they foul up... the most people will be impacted. Why no weekend service?
@cal_ann @Plusnet Depends if the speed you get and your wi fi signal is good enough for your needs. My mum got plusnet and I wouldn't have it if it was free, my phones quicker
@Plusnet how on earth can you justify a nearly £9 increase during a fixed price contract!!! 😡That's way above what an April rise should be! Unacceptable! Goodbye forever! I will never make the mistake of choosing plusnet again.
@iamjoshbennett @katie_pilot BT own Plusnet so as with other ISP’s except Virgin, all are using BT network
So what is the solution when your @Plusnet SIM just stops working and you can't make any calls or texts (>24 hrs now)? According to app/website etc, it's give them a call. Errrrm, slight issue there...
East Kilbride, Scotland
@thinkplaymake @Plusnet Having the same problem here. In Scotland...
Any of my fellow tweeps on PlusNet for their mobile? I’m currently on EE & my 2 year contract ends next month, so looking for cheap sim only deal on a network that piggybacks on EE’s network. A 30 day sim only contract with 30GB data, unlimited mins/texts is £10 p/m. Any reviews?
@Plusnet any other way of getting hold of you other than phone? We would like to not keep the internet once our contract ends on the 8th of June as we’d rather not be paying £42. I can’t call so I need to be able to cancel without being told to ring. Thanks!
@Plusnet why have I just been charged £4 for my phone accidentally sending out emergency SOS text messages when I get unlimited texts on my phone plan?
@Plusnet helloo, I was just signing up for a sim only contract and my WiFi dropped, which sent me back to the homepage. The money came out of my account but I haven't had any emails or other info. Can you help?
@Plusnet My phone number 07831673168 is not connecting to the network please can you check it Thanks
@LouiseScott1377 Hi Louise, I'm really sorry to hear you were having issues with your broadband. I can see you were able to get in touch with us over the phone and you're now showing back online, I hope you didn't miss your doctor's call due to this. -Tony Plusnet Sheffield
@Oojoodeboo Hi there we don't provide roaming services in the US so it could be costly to use our network. If you did want to though it would be best to update your smart cap to at least £20. Alternatively you might want to get a temporary SIM from a local provider - Adam - Plusnet Sheffield
@cal_ann @Plusnet Been with them for years and very happy, but always haggle before renewal. All providers use the same cable to get the phone line into the house so I'm not sure any of them can actually offer a big difference on anything except the router, available add-ons, customer support.
@PaulbernalUK @Plusnet Yes, I neglected to mention one phone not arriving and another arriving broken 😬. Micro capitalist 'efficiency'.
@plusnet I am having increasing problems watching videos. This has been going on for a while, can't even watch one on here without it stopping at least twice during a 2min video. Have tried resetting hub and clearing up phone, doesn't make any difference. Help?
@caz90210 Hi there, we're not aware of any issues in your area. That sounds like either a problem with the SIM card or the phone not being able to detect it. I suggest turning the phone off, removing and re-entering the SIM. Please let me know how you get on. - Adam - Plusnet Sheffield
@Plusnet Hi please can someone assist me I’m a business customer and have been trying to ring the number on your website and the number is unavailable. I’ve found another number online and have been on hold now for 1 hour 😡
@Plusnet hi my router keeps disconnecting. you said you'd send a new one 1st which hasn't arrived + an engineer "fixed" the line issue yesterday. it's just gone off again please can this be looked into
@PaulbernalUK @happyborg @Plusnet oh that's a shame. And re the cheap mob, my main handset that I use as a hotspot needs a battery change (I have to dismantle it) so I recently bought an emergency cheap one purely as a back up hotspot if my handset dies. It's only the Alcatel £40 but it def has a hotspot.
@Plusnet hello! My modem's connection is dropping every fifteen minutes or so, flashes for a bit and then reconnects. Is there an issue in the Twickenham area?
@ItsMadJohn @Hyperoptic Moving to Plusnet on the 23rd. Still gonna have crap speeds though since thats all you can get round here. Really wanna move to Milton Keynes in the next couple of years. They near 100% FTTP.
@Plusnet Good evening, I recently opted to change my provider, but I did not expect to get cut off on my TV package/BT Sport app before the date agreed as I have already paid Plusnet for this service, Please advise?
@celticwitch1995 I had sky with no problems.Then cancelled all of it including tv and got broadband from plusnet and it was absolute crap!They admitted it and let me leave contract with compen.Back with sky broadband with absolutely no problems.Think it depends where you live and how far from box
@Plusnet I have had great help from Alex in sorting out my internet connection problem!
@PaulbernalUK @Plusnet I thought they were the good ones, with great customer service?
@GreyAlien @Plusnet my average speed is 0.9 mbps and im sick to the teeth of excuses and fob off solutions! It used to be about 10-11 mbps which was crap but done the job bit has got beyond a joke now.
Having just moved broadband and mobiles to @Plusnet I have to say how impressive their customer service is. I got through to a real person in under 2 minutes both times.
