send you one, subject to the same terms offered to new customers.

Your speed estimate
Your speed should be close to the estimate we gave when you signed up. If you
want to check this, it’ll be in your
Welcome to Plusnet
We’ll also send a reminder two weeks after your service is activated, comparing your
estimate to the actual speed you’re getting.
During your first 10 days
We’ll check your service to find out the fastest stable speed that your line can
As we do this, your speed will go up and down and you may occasionally lose your
connection. Don’t worry, it’ll come back straightaway.
After 10 days, your line will settle down and your speed should become more
consistent. Small changes in speed are normal and nothing to worry about.
If your speed isn’t what you were expecting
There are a number of things that can affect your speed. These include:
The quality and length of your line from the exchange to your home
Bad weather and electrical interference
Problems with your phone line
Where you put your router
How often you switch your equipment off
You can avoid most problems by following the speed tips on our website. See the
link on the right to find out more.
Your broadband speed

For more about broadband speeds and tips to help you get the best out of
your broadband, see
Plusnet Fibre
Traditionally, broadband speed has been limited
by the telephone network it’s supplied on. The
longer the line (between the exchange and your
home), the slower your broadband will be.
That’s because the telephone network was
originally designed to carry phone calls, rather
than broadband data.
With Plusnet Fibre, new fibre optic cables designed to carry huge amounts of data
supply the broadband signal, so distance from the exchange is no longer a problem.
What this means for you
With fibre optic technology we can offer super-fast speeds, far higher than standard
And it’s not just about speed - Plusnet Fibre means you can do so much more online.
Whether it’s gaming, streaming video or downloading music, Plusnet Fibre means
your whole household can go online at the same time, without slowing each other
down or having to wait for someone else to finish what they’re doing.

If you go over your allowance...
An extra 5GB will be added to your allowance for the month. This costs £5 (which
will be added to your next bill). You can control how much extra usage is added, by
logging in to
and following the on-screen instructions.
Don’t forget that usage between midnight and 8am is completely free and doesn’t
count towards your allowance. This is a good time to make larger downloads.
What counts towards your usage allowance?
Any use of your broadband connection (downloads and uploads) between 8am and
midnight counts towards your usage allowance.
That includes streaming services and sites (e.g. BBC iPlayer, YouTube, Spotify), online
gaming (e.g. XBOX Live, PSN, Steam), as well as the more traditional ways of using
broadband (e.g. web browsing, email, etc).
