    Re: PlusNet Mobile network launches on 29th November

    Great news. As someone who can only get EE reception and fibre broadband at my house this will hopefully give me great deals switching between the two each time. I managed to get 42Mb fibre with phone line and 2gb sim for ~£15 a month by switching this year. Hopefully I can just flip flop all at BT expense!

    I'm currently on Giffgaff 30 day contract which offers 2Gb / 100 min / unlimited text for £10 a month on a 30 day contract.

    I think I might bite and grab this pre-order offer as it's double the data and unlimited minutes and working on EE's 4G network, instead of O2 so will be more reliable.

    Re: PlusNet Mobile network launches on 29th November

    Are those "any network" minutes or just Plusnet to Plusnet, or Plusnet to EE and EE MVNOs? It's not that clear... it seems VERY cheap if those are "any network" minutes.

    I'd rather see somebody enter the market that doesn't overcontend their bandwidth. Mobile "broadband" is a joke in the UK.

    I don't know about being extremely cheap. I negotiated my Three contract down to £12pm for 4GB data with unlimited calls and texts (and I think they're offering that deal now anyway).

    That sounds expensive. I got my contract, with unlimited minutes/text & 4GB data, for just £9 per month with Three.

    Yeah, like I said they seem to be offering that as standard now, suggesting you'd be able to negotiate it down further.

    I can tether the entire 4GB if I want though, and I don't know if that's possible with your £9 deal.

    better off with t-mobile, you have unlimited data for £12 a month that can download at 700KB/s, and make only a few calls every month

    cheaper to use instant messanger, then SMS, or voice call with IM, 0800 are free, so you just have to make real calls to work and other random places

    No, I can't tether on my package but then I have no real need to do so.
