My ISP (Internet Service Provider) has emailed me an exclusive offer for new customers to receive 3 months free broadband. If anyone signs up using the details below, then I’ll also receive 3 months free broadband.

Usually I don’t bother with these kind of deals, but as I have had a positive experience with Plusnet, I’ve decided to share the details below, in case anyone wants to take advantage of the offer. The offer is only valid until the 28th March 2011.

The details of the offer and how to sign up are below:

To welcome you to Plusnet, we’d like you to have 3 months of free broadband.

We’ll reward your friend with a discount too, just to say thanks for recommending us. Once you’ve joined you can start referring friends and earn your own discounts.

How to claim your 3 months of free broadband

1. We’ll ask you if someone recommended us when you sign up. It’ll look something like this:

Just enter their username (mentalist3d) and tell us which ISP they’re with (Plusnet, Free-Online or Force9).

2. We’ll then ask you for a promo code. It’ll look something like this:

Just enter the code “refer3“. You’ll then get the first 3 months of your service completely free.

My experience

I have been with Plusnet for just over a year, and all in all, it has been a positive experience. Before joining Plusnet, I was previously with Tiscali (now Talk Talk). My experience with Tiscali was very negative, I had several disconnections of my internet which usually took up to a week to resolve as customer support went through all the usual scripted steps, support replies answered very late, and speeds in the evening were just abysmal, streaming videos during the evening was just not possible.

With Plusnet, I have had steady speeds, during the day and evening, and only once did I lose speed through my Wi-Fi connection, this however was a problem at my end with a neighbour who had their WiFi router set on the same channel as mine which caused interference.

I’ve done a couple of Broadband Speed Tests through to show the speeds I get through Plusnet. While this is usually the average that can be obtained by most providers, I have found the speeds consistent throughout the day and evening, unlike my previous provider, where evening access was usually at a crawl.

Speed Test – 9:05pm
Speed Test – 11:50pm

Even though I have had a good experience with Plusnet which is recommended by PC Advisor, and I do encourage others to sign up to their services, my experience may not be the same as yours. As always, if you are looking to get broadband or change your provider, you should look around to see what the other providers are offering. Also make sure to check the terms and conditions of your chosen provider and any contractual information.
