Plusnet has launched a new broadband deal that offers customers its Essentials package from just £2.99 a month for 12 months, equivalent to half the usual price.
Those taking the Essentials broadband and calls package will benefit from speeds of up to 16Mb and also receive a 10Gb monthly usage, the broadband provider states.
The offer, which runs from today (March 12th) to April 11th, is open to new customers who apply via phone or online, live in a low-cost area, and take Plusnet home phone line rental, which costs £13.99.
Alternatively, people can sign up to the Plusnet Line Rental Saver, which comprises a one-off, annual payment of £125.88 and means people only pay the equivalent of £10.49 a month.
Those taking up the Essentials package receive a number of perks, including the company’s latest 4-port wireless-n technology router, worth £40, and UK-based 24-hour support, 365 days a year, from the award-winning customer support team.
Other perks include unlimited overnight usage, allowing people to do as much as they like between midnight and 8am, without eating into their monthly allowance.
The Essentials package also comes with the Plusnet Protect security package, powered by McAfee, which keeps all users safe when online and is free for the first three months of the contract, rising to just £2 a month after that.
Another useful and free addition to the package is the Plusnet Assist tool, which enables people to fix connection problems - customers simply need to download and install the free tool, then let it check for problems and fix them automatically.
The calls package, meanwhile, includes evening and weekend calls to UK landlines, 0870/0845 calls at evenings and weekends and free calls to Plusnet Support, with the opportunity to upgrade to the Talk Anytime package for an extra £4 a month.
