Students seeking maximum flexibility from their service provider have been urged to consider Plusnet's range of broadband deals.
The broadband provider allows student to sign up for high-speed broadband on a non-contract basis, meaning they only need to pay for web services when they are around to use them.
Plusnet allows subscribers to take a rolling contract option which means people are not tied to a contract for the summer period when away from university.
As such, many individuals run up unnecessary broadband costs for a service they do not use during holiday periods.
The broadband provider explained that in order to use non-contract Plusnet broadband, all consumers are required to do is pay for their broadband router up front.
A wired router costs £20 with Plusnet, while a wireless broadband equivalent is available for £40.
Earlier this week, Virgin Media announced the launch of a range of nine-month broadband deals aimed specifically at students.
Plusnet has previously accused its rivals of offering "gimmicky" broadband deals to the student community, which are inferior to its own non-contract web services.
Speaking in autumn 2010, the firm stated: "Plusnet charges the same low monthly price for broadband whether customers are on a 12 month contract or our pay-as-you-go monthly option."
