    I thought I was completely satisfied and happy with direct save until today when I found out there is a limit of 1500 minutes per month I was shocked that is only 48 mins a day I can use that on 1 call,I am home all day and make a lot of calls to friends and family.After speaking to a customer adviser who was very sympathetic and polite, I have now got to watch my minutes until my contract runs out as I have only been with them for a couple of months and paid my line rental upfront for 12 months, I have got a long wait before I can leave them,unless they come up with a better deal before then.SUCH A SHAME.They charge 14p connection and 7p per minute over the 1500 limit,SCANDALOUS!!!!!!!!!!!

    broadband doesnt deserve a star and their customer is shocking. They changed my telephone number back in May without me knowing, I called on several occasions to sort out my payment method and the service I received was appalling, I have sent an email to their customer services back in July was assured I would get a reply and still havent and its now November!!

    I recently changed provider from Talktalk to Directsave, I got fed up of the continual price rises over the last two years, so looked elswhere and checked reviews and although directsave had some bad ones, so do most of the others, so I'm giving them a chance.
    To start with now Iam now paying £13.45 with Directsave compared with £27.70 for the same service from Talktalk.
    The changeover went very smoothly, router came pre configured just needed to put the wifi password into my laptop.The BB speed (over 8Mb/s) is exactly the same, as is the evening & weekends phone service.
    Overall pleased with the savings and the customer service up to press.
    Like all service providers, there may come a time that I become dissatisfied, as I have on the three previous occasions.
    But I am always willing to give a smaller, less greedy company a chance.

    I was happy with the prices quoted to me but wanted to first speak with my partner before agreeing to go with them. The sales man was very insistent on calling me back, wouldn't take no for an answer, nor did he ask if it was ok on the number I was calling, let alone if it was ok for him to call me at all. He was pushy,and I felt like he was desperate for a sale, and gave me his number incase I didn't answer.

    I ended up agreeing to a contract as I can only go with two companies as no one else provides service in my area and they were cheaper. He quoted me a different line rental price to my first phone call and he did not make it clear that it would take 2-6 weeks to connect me until further in the 9conversation where he already had my bank details. I questioned it and he said yeah remember I told you before, we agreed it, etc,...errr no you never mentioned that before. I need Internet asap. He couldn't tell when I'd receive a router, when I'd be able to connected nor if and when an engineer needed to come out. He literally had no answers and was very insistent that it was nothing to do with him, he was just a sales man.I wasn't too impressed but as I said, it's cheaper Internet and I didn't have many options.

    I then had two missed calls about an hour later, which I returned and it was a really nice girl from his team claiming the connection fee hadn't been processed, and correctly so I hadn't received a confirmation email. I still haven't. She was very nice but unfortunately revealed (which her pushy colleague hid from me) that she wasn't able to find my address as it was a new building and they are actually unable to connect until all the wires are laid. She didn't even have my postcode in the system! Basically meaning who knows when i was going to be connected! I then heard her question her manager (the same man who signed me up) about it and I could hear his muffled voice saying yes yes it's a new building just write down the postcode and we'll process it whenever it registers in the system, she'll never know. You can imagine my horror!!!!! I asked her not to reprocess the payment, she couldn't do so and said I had to contact customer services and after a lot of battling, I let her know what a joke it was that her and her manager couldn't give me any info on installation, time scales and the fact he'd hidden and then advised her about faking accepting my new postcode.

    Needless to say I cancelled my contract just two hours after joining (with a very friendly man who was very helpful) and am now with the slightly more expensive one with no issues!

    Cannot praise too highly. Have been with them for a number of years & always found them to be helpful, friendly and efficient. Within last week changed over to fibre and it was totally painless. Everything happened as they said it would. Well done DST.

    I have been with this company for approximately 8 months and from the day I started I had problems with the internet service, it is highly unreliable. I could never have the service longer than 20 minutes before I have to turn off the router to get any service. I could only receive internet in my bedroom and I live in a small 2 bedroom apartment. I have made several calls to this company about the situation, however I must admit that there is one person called Martin who is respectable and very helpful in the whole company and he tries his best to help and we find solutions to the problems. However, I am paying for a service and I would like some reliability. My last call to directsave was Monday and I was informed they would call back but I had no call to date. I am fed up..

    If it was possible to give this company a zero I certainly would. Everything about this company is appalling. One of their representatives called my disabled 90 year old mother who has many different health issues and has a medical alert phone with BT. On testing the her bracelet which we do monthly, it didn't work. I phoned BT to tell them only to find that Direct Save had taken over the phone. On questioning mum she said BT had rung to offer her a better deal with them. Looking into this I found out that she believed and kept asking their operator if this was BT because she needed to stay with them. This operative led her all the way to believe that it was BT who she was speaking to and my mum even stupidly gave her bank details over the phone to this company. I managed to get on to her bank and explain and they cancelled the standing orders, etc immediately. I asked the company to produce the tapes as they say that they record every conversation, which was the advice I received from Ofcom. I have written to this company and emailed them and they have denied receiving any correspondence from either myself or Ofcom or any complaint was made or recorded against my mum's account with them. I cannot believe a company can carry on like this and stay in business. The guy who had the conversation with mum, who I agree the other comments here I think they only have about two members of staff, said he didn't realise she was elderly or had Parkinson's disease and didn't understand she had a special phone, I cannot understand that as her voice is weak and shaky. I am still trying to get them to produce this recording, they are still chasing my mum for cancellation fees, etc. and have today sent her a debt collection letter. Once I spoke to the debt collection agency they said they would go back and speak to Direct Save themselves. Ongoing fight but I believe a company is only as good as their service when things go wrong, so I just want to add beware if you are going to use this company. They even told me they believed that her medic alert would have worked with their service after they denied she told them she had one. They just constantly put the phone down on you if you try and reason with them, unbelievable.

    I signed up to Direct save 2 months ago and I must say I was very impressed with the package I was recommended by. A gentle called Tony, offered me the Broadband Deal.The pricing was a great saving, and I have saved myself £37 a quarter. Thank you for helping me.

    Direct Save Telecom is a great company with the cheapest line rental in the uk. I have never had any prblems with my broadband and i have been with them over 2 years. The ammount of money of i have saved in the past 2 years has allowed me to DO SO MUCH THINGS I wish i had become a DST customer years ago. There staff are very friendly and helpful along with there great customer service team. I would also like to commend one member of staff by the name of Rosie who went above and beyond to help me....Thank you DST

    Terrible customer service, they treat customers like morons, service can be intermittent, when you have a problem you can forget all about being treated like a person, the staff here treat all customers like idots - the "sales" department are quite friendly, but once you're on the hook you get downgraded to trash.

    Where do I start with this lot?!
    Not had any problems with them up until now which is a shame as I actually thought the broadband speed was sufficient and no issues at all, bearing in mind was expensive but thats because we weren't tied into a contract! A few months ago left my student flat and moved back home, at this period I was very stressed with exams, moving out etc that the internet wasn't on my mind much. I phoned up on two occasions to cancel and was told to email, which I assumed I did as its not like me to just leave it. Cancelled my direct debit assuming everything was ok and then a few months later (now) I get a phone call from then, which they hang up.. so I phone them back and they advise me I owe them £100 , I was like?!?!?!? , they said I was still paying for the internet which would have been fair as I forgot to cancel properly as they require it in writing (god knows why).. Anyway so they tried to take a direct debit from me last month and it bounced back because I cancelled it, then again this month, with late fees totalling up to £100. Phoned them and advised them I wasn't happy as I havn't lived in the flat for months. The customer service is absolutely terrible, I work in a call centre myself and would never speak to customers the way they do. Its always the same person your through to as well, its as if they only have about 4 people in that office where they work. So I started getting angry as we were going round in circles, bearing in mind I wasn't aggressive and I didn't swear, but I got hung up on , I couldn't believe it... I phoned up the consumer helpline straight after and thank god for them... they scanned the contract and noticed section 3c which states that Directsave need to contact you if your DD fails in which they failed to do so... they didn't contact me at all last month when it bounced back and let the money tally up so I pay a substantial amount, they knew exactly what they were doing.. they phoned me today but hung up as soon as I answered?!? so I phoned back wanting to know... then I explained they were in breach of contract as they didn't tell me the DD bounced back.. however they couldn't get there head around this and kept telling me they called me today? But they didn't actually say to me.. which consumer helpline says is not valid, they need proof of messaging me, they denied this saying that they contacted me but in the contract states that they need to contact you, I kept getting the usual patter from the agent saying 'but we did contact you, how do you expect us to tell you when you don't answer' I said I did answer but you hung up and you didn't call me at all last month when it bounced back... Then he went on to say that 'its not a set time frame' that might mean after a few Direct Debits, which the consumer advice line warned me they would say, and gain this is not valid as they haven't stated this in the contract... We were going round in circles and I knew I was right but the agent couldn't accept what I was saying and just kept saying we tried to contact you.. he sounded very young and not experienced at all in customer service. After about 5 attempts of asking for a manager I was finally put through and advised this to the manager, and they understood exactly what I was talking about and that it was a breach of contract, so we met half way in which I pay £30.. and give the router back, which I think is fair considering I didn't fully give notice in the first place, but what a lot of stress this was.. I wouldn't recommend these guys to anybody purely based on the customer service as its ridiculous, the agents are so patronizing and sound like they just left school.. however regardless of this, the broadband was really good and fast..

    Recently moved house. What really matters is when problems occur they are dealt with quickly. An 0800 number and getting through in a few seconds matters. Helpful staff sorted out issues quickly and efficiently when I needed to configure my own router. Very cost effective compared with TalkTalk. Try dealing with issues with TalkTalkcan take ages on the phone. No comparison.

    Speed excellent. However, I am now nearer an exchange. 10Mb/sec compared to 2Mb/sec.

    I have had absolutly shocking and appawling service from this company. I can not stress enough how bad a service I have had from this company. When I signed up I was told I would pay a £50 connection fee, which I was fine with, and that I would not recieve a bill for another six weeks and that it would be at a reduced rate. I was then billed within 2 weeks of the sign up date not at a reduced rate and then again in the same month. So two unagreed payments and an unagreed amount. Also I was supposed to have my phone go live in 24 hours and my internet 5-7 days later. After a week my phone was not on and my internet was not put on until a further 10 days after. So I was billed not only unfairly but for a service I was not even recieving. I emailed the company to which I was treated absolutly disrespectfully and they tried to make it very difficult for me to resolve and they wouldnt take any responsibility. There were many emails passed to and fro and eventually I was refunded one months fee. Very very unfair.

    I was connected to 'Direct Save', in April last year and was on-line in about 5-days of ordering the package from the web. Although, everything went fine for about a week, my router kept started dropping the 'DSL' line eventhough my phone was working as promised. I phoned the support line, told them of the problem, and after a short 5-minute wait, the advisor said that the trce revealed that the router was failing and that he would send out a new one. In just 2-days I had the new router. I replaced the old one, and within minutes I was back on-line. I began a ping/speed test and found that the speed had increased to just over 9mb rather than the 3.2mb that I was getting before. As the original estimate was around 7mb for the area. I am totally thrilled with the results thus far and can't really say much, only that the service is 'Top quality'. The best that I ever had from any supplier. My last ISP was 'virginmedia' who, kept increasing their prices. So, all-in-all I've cut my internet bill by ³⅓ or £27.40 and we are very pleased to know that these people are true to their word. Top marks for an outstanding service...

    Decided to swap from see the light as a lot cheaper. Spoke to a young lady who was lovely said I would think about it and call her back. Did as said and was told (rather hurriedly in hindsight)ok and it would change on the 2nd December. Cancelled my previous provider for the 2nd December, received the agreement - it was wrong and that was changed. 2nd of December was fast approaching - no contact or modem etc. Called to be told by an incredibly rude chap that basically hard luck only date they could do it was 5th December. Incredibly condescending and the rudest person I have had the pleasure of talking to in a long time. Called again to be told the same but in a less rude (still rude though) manner. Cancelled there and then. Avoid this one.

    Thieves!!
    My agreement started on 28th Oct they promised Internet within a few days.all that showed was limited service(none) so I called to which they blamed a third party to have damaged the connection(my nabours all had phoneline Internet) and said it would be fixed on the 11th to which moved to the 13th then they decided it was my wall splitter cable to which I went and purchased.still didn't work then then a week roles past with me expecting call backs from engineer's and then managers I constantly call them to no resolve.

    I live in Watford, direct save operate from here and I have 3 friends that have worked for them and recommended me to them,I told them of my problem they suggested it was that they sent me a cheap s##t router.I told direct save this yet no action was taken.

    21st November
    I finally call to cancel as I see this is going nowhere and of course I want a refund as anyone would in my position.

    So there not willing to give me a refund but I have to cancel in writing and give 28 days so I'm trapped into another months payment and I've lost my start up cost also have to pay for router as I don't have the box!!
    The person over the phone couldn't comprehend why this may be unfair trade then suggest back to resolving the problem which he believes is Internet not my actual problem which is direct save!!
    So he suggest that it could be electrical fault that a BT engineer could fix but the call out is £130 minimum.

    I've contacted my bank who are there to protect us and our money
    There staff understood my point of view and have logged it as goods not received and will stop any further payment to them.

    TO Direct save as promised here's 1 of many complaints from a dissatisfied disappointed victim

    The test of any company is how they cope when things are going wrong. I am willing to givepeople the benefit of the doubt. There were some very good and helpful advisors but some extremely rude ones too. We took on the telephone and broadband from previous occupants. It took them 10 days before they informed me I would need one of their modems to access broadband. It took a week for the modem to be sent, which was sent to the previous occupants who had moved 20 miles away. They would not reissue a modem so I had to drive to collect. The passwords provide did not work with the modem and technical support are only available during office hours. No one available at weekends either which is tough when working away from home in the week. Eventually I got someone who knew what was wrong (passwords were set up for previous owner) and so 22 days later we have internet. My goal was to not go a day without internet as I work at weekends and evenings so this has been hellish. Next challenge is the 0.3mb/s speed. Down expect calls to be returned. At the end of the day you get what you pay for.

    Been with them for over a year now, completely satisfied. Never had any problems. When i have had to contact Customer Services they have always been 100% polite and helpful. Would definately recommend them.

    Only been with them a week so will update in a few months too but so far they are great. We have always been with BT as we live in a rural area and they were the best option (we can't even get Sky) but then saw this company for so much cheaper and as I am on Maternity Leave was looking at ways to reduce our bills. Customer Service has so far been fine, got through quickly to someone I can understand (unlike BT). Broadband speed/connectivity has been fine - able to stream on my laptop while my husband is online on the Xbox too(unlike BT where is used to waver/buffer a lot) and websites load up quickly. So yeah so far so good (fingers crossed it continues). I was wary as just couldn't believe we would get the same service at such a cheap price but as of yet it has been better than BT.

    Absolutely appalling service, never have I been so repeatedly fobbed off on the phone. Our broadband has not worked for over a week, every time I've tried to phone I just get a lifeless robot saying she has raised a ticket for engineer to give me a call the next working day. That has now happened 3 days in a row with not a single returned phone call.
    DO NOT USE DIRECT TELECOM.
    Absolutely diabolical

    I had to buy out of my contact early with direct save. From the moment with took up the broadband and telephone service we had problems. I asked them to waiver the early end of contract fee, but they would not agree. The service was appalling, the equipment was of poor quality. The service used to cut out every day, or buffer. I lost several days work because of the service was not fit for purpose. It cost me £59 to leave. I am now with BT and we have an excellent service now.

    So far I only had problems with this company as well. I have a contract since March and so far I only had a huge disappointment. Since I am living in an apartment building i have a separate line connected to my room. The problem was that the company has send the signal to another room within my apprtment, which means that I couldn't make use of it at all. I have already called them constantly have been wasting tons of money for the pricey line, and never got anywhere at all. Now I am a bit further they have been telling me that they had to terminate the line in the other room and will start it up in my room after having send a eletrician which probably will come within 2 weeks. I am soo pissed, all the time I have been paying for them and all I got was one punch into the face after another. So next time this is going to be on the black list, never again ...

    I have been with DST for over 6 years. At first they were great. The past 18 months have been terrible. Incorrect charging, service drop-outs, inconsistent advice for customer services. I have requested on-line billing (many times) and they still can't seem to manage that (I still get paper copies!). I have asked for my MAC code twice and am still waiting. Excuse after excuse. The sooner I can leave the better.
