Recommended broadband ISP in the UK
PlusNet has got to be one of the most fully featured ISPs in the UK. I've been a subscriber since January 2002 and have enjoyed consistent reliability. Because I'm over 5 miles from my exchange, the maximum speed I can currently obtain is about 480-490kbps. Prices start at Â£9.99 per month for a 1GB service rising to Â£29.99 for 40GB, where available. For Business customers, the rates are a little higher but the contention is better. Being able to host Domain Names in connection with the provided Webspace is a useful feature as is the availability of a shared SSL secured data transmission capability. In July 2004, PlusNet was floated on the UK stockmarket where the shareprice quickly quadrupled. Between March and August 2006 its value fell back to nearly its floatation price before being taken over by BT.COM at a price midway between the historic high and low. The business has continued to evolve independently of BT. Being familiar with PlusNet's operating procedures, I would be in a strong position to assist anyone who decides to take up this recommendation.
