Broadband for £6 per month, plus (really) unlimited usage deal
If the recession means you can't afford to eat out, if the outrageous ticket prices at your local Odeon have put an end to your weekly cinema jaunt, the last thing you want to cut out of the monthly budget is a neccessary pleasure like broadband. To paraphrase the great philosopher of our time, Homer Simpson: "How can one little insulated wire bring so much happiness?"
Good news, at least for those of you not sucking the latest episodes of 24 up the pipes; ISP Plusnet has introduced a budget £5.99-a-month broadband package that offers a 10GB monthly download limit, a free wireless router and speeds of up to 8Mbps.
The company told WebUser it was introducing the deal in response to customer demand for a low-price, full-featured broadband package in these times of economic hardship. And in a grand break with the tradition of companies putting themselves first, the offer is also available to existing customers.
If you're still keen to torrent your bits, then Plusnet is also offering an unlimited broadband package, as in... unlimited. The ISP claims that advances in traffic management mean it can offer truly unlimited access by prioritising time-sensitive activities like gaming and VoIP, though that means file sharing will run at a snail's pace most of the time. Bah.
