Price, customer service and easy set-up – these are the three
most important factors consumers use to help them choose a broadband
package, according to a new survey from Yorkshire-based broadband
Almost two-thirds (64 per cent) said price is the most important factor when
choosing a home phone and broadband
supplier. With this in mind, Plusnet is currently offering up to half price
broadband for 12 months when new customers take its home phone service.
Additionally, 12 per cent said they would make a decision based on customer service
and, finally, one in ten of those surveyed said the ease of setting up to a new
service was the most important factor in choosing their provider.
Jamie Ford, CEO of Plusnet, said: "To many households, phone and broadband has
become as important as gas and electricity. It is clear that people want a service
that is value for money and at the same time easy to use. At Plusnet, we strive to
give customers what they want; an honest, straightforward service at seriously
competitive prices. In fact, if you find a better price for standalone broadband,
we’ll match it."
This month Plusnet will launch a new 0345 customer services telephone number,
alongside their current 0800 offering. This means that not only can customers call
free from UK landlines on 0800 432 0200, but the new 03451 400 200 number will be
charged at normal landline rates and so can be deducted from inclusive minutes on a
mobile phone plan.
