PlusNet has introduced a new "Value" broadband package at just £5.99 a month that is also available for existing customers. It offers up to 8Mb speeds, 10GB usage allowance, a free wireless router, free connection, and 24/7 support. A minimum contract length of 18 months applies.

PlusNet claims that its Value broadband deal means that there's bandwidth enough "for multiple users on one connection, downloading music tracks in a matter of seconds and playing games online".

The £5.99 deal is only available to people who live in one of PlusNet's "low cost areas". The ISP states that if you live outside of one of these areas you'll pay £5.99 a month for the first three months and £11.99 a month thereafter.

PC Advisor can confirm that existing PlusNet users can switch to the new value deal, which offers a greater usage allowance than many existing deals.

However, users should be prepared to sign up for 18 months, where previously many deals were on a more flexible monthly basis.

Existing PlusNet customers should call 0845 140 0200.
