September 20, 2012, 1:33 pm -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Plusnet has revealed that, with the world's spotlight having shone on the UK this year, 81% of the nation feel proud to be a Brit, with nearly a third claiming they feel more proud than they have for a decade. Plusnet has commissioned a survey, supplemented with focus groups and insights from leading psychologist Dr. Cliff Arnall, which has found that:
- Nearly a third of the UK claim they feel the proudest they have for a decade
- 69% are proud of the British sense of humour
- 80% of Brits say family gives them sense of pride
- 50% feel proud of bagging a bargain when it comes to shopping
Jamie Ford, Plusnet CEO, added: "This year Plusnet changed its strapline to 'We'll do you proud' which, by coincidence, has been a rather fitting move given the events of 2012. We're certainly a proud nation when it comes to our culture, sense of humour and our heritage. However, it is matters closer to home and the everyday actions of family that generates the biggest sense of pride and here at Plusnet, we’re committed to making our customers proud of the products and services we provide every day."
Back in 1997 Plusnet was born. Its plan was simple; to think and act differently from other providers and save the customer money. That's not changed since the day it launched. More than a decade later Plusnet is still providing great value fibre optic broadband and phone packages from its HQ in Yorkshire.
Plusnet's customers and industry professionals think it supports them so well that the company has been given a stack of awards to prove it. Plusnet was especially proud to have won "Best Overall Customer Satisfaction" in the 2011 uSwitch Broadband Satisfaction Survey.
Plusnet always takes pride in having a great relationship with its customers,
offering great broadband customer service. It believes it's only fair to talk
openly and honestly with them, help fix problems and talk about pretty much anything
related to broadband over on its Community site, blogs and forums. Plusnet customers
also get generous rewards for telling their friends about the company.
