I you're thinking of signing a contract with Plusnet for broadband, don't. They offer a below par, intermittent service. I myself only signed up with them because of their £75 cashback offer at the time. I was met with further disappoint after months of contacting, them trying to get them to provide me with the cashback. The issue still hasn't been resolved.
If anyone's interested I'll go further into the details Plusnets sub-par service. But for the moment I just wanted to but this out there to warn other students about the same pit-fall I fell into.
Come and get some inspiration.
