Can I switch from BT to Plusnet?
If you’re switching between two Openreach providers – such as BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Plusnet, or EE – all you need to do is order a new package. If you’re switching to or from a provider on a different network, however – like Virgin Media – you’ll need to call up your current provider and cancel the service yourself.
Is Openreach owned by BT?
In March 2017, BT Group plc agreed to make Openreach a separate company, Openreach Limited, with its own staff and management, but with the network assets continuing to be owned by BT plc for land-contract reasons, and with Openreach Limited being wholly owned by BT Group plc, BT plc’s parent holding company.
