Great broadband at a great price
Earlier this month, I wrote an article about super-fast broadband in which I argued that the vast majority of Internet users have no need of high-priced, lightning-fast broadband costing between £300 and £600 a year.
For most of us, mega-fast broadband (say, 20Mb or faster) would be a complete waste of money. Most households can easily make do with a reliable, competitively priced 8Mb service. Almost a year ago, I was paying £15 a month for such a service. Then, my broadband provider collapsed, leaving me with no Internet access and in a panic!

However, I quickly and easily switched to award-winning Internet Service Provider (ISP) PlusNet. In under a week, my new broadband connection was up and running, and I’ve had a faultless service ever since.
My PlusNet Value service offers 8Mb broadband with a 10GB download limit for just £5.99 a month. Therefore, I saved a packet by switching. Even better, thanks to a special offer (cashback of £36), my first year’s service cost under £36.
In other words, by switching ISP, I’ve saved £12 a month, which comes to £144 in my first year. In later years, the saving is still great, at £108 a year.

Here’s the bad news...
Thanks to its attractive pricing, PlusNet is one of the most popular ISPs in the UK. Alas, its current special offer is about to end.
Last week, I received an email from PlusNet with some bad news. The monthly price for this service will increase by 50p a month to £6.49 a month from 12 April. Happily, as an existing customer, my monthly fee is frozen at £5.99 for the next year.
In other words, the yearly cost of PlusNet Value is set to rise by £6, which is a shame.
...and the good news
The good news is that you can beat this price rise if you act now.
You have until midnight on Thursday, 18 March to get the PlusNet Value service for £5.99 a month with the first four months free. In other words, if you act now, you can get this service for £47.92 for the first year. This works out at an amazing £3.99 a month!
To grab this great deal before it’s gone, sign up at lovemoney.com’s broadband partner, Broadband Choices, and then enter the discount code 4monthsBB. This will cut the cost to under £48 for your first year. Wait until Friday, and you’ll pay £77.88 a year, which is almost £30 a year more.
If you've missed this deal, you can still sign up and get broadband for £5.99 a month until 12 April. You won't get the first four months free, however.
