Smart Cap Contracts avoid unexpectedly large bills
✔ Plusnet Mobile's capped contracts give you control
Sometimes you use more minutes, texts or data than were included in your basic tariff. These will be charged per minute, text or MB, and added to your bill at the end of the month (see costs here).
Normally, this can lead to unexpected bills you hadn't planned for but Plusnet Mobile's Smart Cap Contracts are different.
They let you set an amount you are happy to spend above the basic cost of your tariff each month. Any usage that would cost you any more more is automatically stopped, so you can't add to your bill.
It's a smart system that comes as standard with all Plusnet Mobile's SIM only contracts from £5 a month.
Once you've hit your cap, you can still use your phone
✔ Keep using your phone even after the cap
If you manage to reach the amount you have set your cap at, the only services stop are ones that would cost extra on top of your basic tariff.
All other mobile services will continue unaffected.
So if for example you've used up all your data, you'll still be able to use your remaining minutes and texts, without extra cost.
This is a smart system that avoids blocking all services and making your phone useless!
If you want to get the cap raised or reduced to continue using a particular service, ring Plusnet Mobile free on 500 from your SIM.
You can set your own limit depending on your budget
✔ Set your own cap according to your budget
If you're happy spending extra above the basic cost, it could get annoying if particular mobile services kept getting shut off.
Luckily, once you've joined Plusnet Mobile, you can get the spending cap raised to a higher amount to avoid this (up to £30).
Your SIM card will come with an automatic £10 spending cap on it when you first get it.
Give Plusnet Mobile a call free on 500 from your SIM and they'll look to get it raised.
