What network does Plusnet use?

Plusnet uses the Openreach network, which is the same network other broadband providers like BT, Sky and EE use. While the services and prices may differ between each provider, the network (your internet) will always remain the same. That’s why you’ll get the same internet speed no matter which provider you go with, because they are selling you the exact same product. 

While the Openreach network is the most widely used network in the UK, there are other providers, such as Virgin Media, who do not use it, and will provide a completely different service using their own network.
