BT and Plusnet Modems

I am currently with BT for telephone and broadband, but could get a similar package from Plusnet for about £6 a month less.However, I see that BT claim that the Home Hub is worth £99 but Plusnet only claim that their router is worth half that. There must be differences between them, but would I notice those differences in practice?

Hi there,

The router we ship is a Thomson 582n. There are subtle differences between it and the Home Hub but I doubt you'd notice. Having said that, you're free to use your own router if you want anyway.

My opinion is biased of course but if you have any questions about the service then I'd be happy to help.

In case you didn't know, we released Unlimited today too! :) - http://community.plus.net/blog/2012/12/19/unlimited-broadband-is-here/

Best regards,

A question for Bob Pullen.

Thank you for that information. I have had a look at the offers on your web site and have one question. If I am perfectly happy with my current provider for line rental and calls but simply want to change broadband provider, is that possible? My impression from your web site is that if I wanted broadband from Plusnet, I would have to transfer my line rental as well.

"The router we ship is a Thomson 582n."

Thanks for that Bob. I obviously misread the OP's post as I thought he wanted a Home Hub which I found surprising as I've never seen them available as one of your routers despite Plusnet being owned by BT now.

Newuser, on the Plusnet "Packages" page, click the "Broadband Only" tab at the top. You don't need to switch from BT to get broadband from Plusnet.

@Newuser939, you can continue to pay your existing provider for your line rental and just move your broadband service to us - http://www.plus.net/home-broadband/broadband-only/ You'll pay a one-off £25 activation fee though.

@Secret-Squirrel, no we've never supplied a Home Hub although the newer iterations will work on a Plusnet-provisioned line.

Best regards,
