    Sorry but it's terrible. The customer service seems its making an effort, but we spend often days without Internet, the speed is terrible and they would not let us terminate the contract. Just awful waste of our money. Thanks

    AVOID, AVOID, AVOID.
    When is works the internet is standard at best but overall highly unreliable internet connection and speeds (in London - what hope for anywhere else) that is rarely anywhere near reasonable speed particularly in the evenings. With one user we struggle to watch iplayer/OnDemand TV due to slow data transfer. Two users and it grind to halt and network/connection error. Worse still is their diabolical customer service. Much like other bad reviews I have experienced being on hold for long periods of time, then speaking to someone who talks nonsensical jargon and continuously swerves questions falling back to repeating nonsense. Promises of call backs, 'removed caps', manager call backs and engineer visits all empty. Highly unimpressed and would actively encourage to use alternative providers for the sake of your sanity.

    Spent £400 on a games console, however can't play online... speed is bad and inconsistent drop under 1mb/s download Speed all the time. When I get 3 mb/s it's around 3am but apart from that always bad. I switched from post office to ee. Would rather chop off my toes than stay with EE

    I only gave the top two categories one star because zero is not possible. This is not only the worst company I have ever dealt with, they are criminal. They breached their T&Cs countless times, made falls promises, proved to be completely incapable of sorting out the most minor of issues, haven't got the slightest modicum of customer service mentality and have even acted fraudulently. To everyone: Do Not Go With This Company!! You will regret it and you will find it almost impossible to leave!! I am on the brink of beginning a legal battle with these incompetent, scandalous, unintelligible people. Not to mention the complete uselessness of their call centre. STAY AWAY!!!!

    Persuaded in store to take up Home Phone & Broadband with EE. Always been ok on mobile phones and they told us we could keep our email address so got ourselves talked into it. Worst move ever! E mail stopped working, spent hours on the phone waiting to get through - then cannot understand what they are saying most of the time. Technical staff were abrupt, rude and very unhelpful. Asked to speak to a supervisor and they put you through to a phone that rings for half an hour then cuts you off. Get through to their complaints team who promise to investigate and call you back and a week later you're still waiting. Get back in touch with the original store and turns out they lied!! Letter done to their Head Office and Ofcom.

    No communication from ee towards end of yearly contract regarding possible new packages available, they just slung me on a monthly tariff despite my having paid yearly in advance previous 2 years.Their accounting procedures are labarythim so it is difficult to work out when you year is up as time money comes out of your account bears no relation to start/ending dates of your 12 months.

    The router supplied by EE was defective. I don't know if this is a widespread problem affecting the Brightbox 1 but, in our situation, it made internet browsing completely impossible - 5 to 10 second waits for a webpage to load; latency and ping readings through the roof. The connection itself is alright: we swapped out the router for a spare we had lying around and the speed was as it should be. If we hadn't been able to do this, though, we'd have had to put up with a shockingly slow internet experience for 12 months, as the staff at EE's call centre are hopelessly bad. We tried getting them to diagnose and replace the router but they were next to useless, so in the end we binned the EE router and stuck with our own.

    Is the worst seevice ever. I had problems all the time! The connection was dropping at every 5 minutes. I used to call them at every 3 weeks and they were sending me engineer. And i asked them to cancel my contract and they took me again money for another month of no service. Awful!

    Really not happy with speed, been with Virgin, BT, Sky, Talk Talk and nothing like this. If I want faster apparently I need to upgrade! Was fine for the first month then got slower and slower and if I have a friend round, it's impossible to connect!!!

    Worst broadband ever. Never had problem with previous providers. My average speed was 6 MB . But since I've switched over to EE it hardly goes over 1 mb. Extremely disappointed. Avoid it at all cost.

    I purchased the package detailed and was delighted with the speed and reliability initially. However for over a month the speed has been dropping as low as 0.41 Mbps, bearing in mind I'm on an up to 49.7 Mbps fibre connection. EE continue leaving me voicemails at 5.00 pm after I e-mail them, informing them I work until 5.30 pm and can they contact me at 7.30 pm. On each occasion they agree to that, then call at 5.00 pm stating they are unable to assist me because they can't get in contact! Next stop is Ofcom.

    So disappointed with EE broadband. Have been with Sky for years and years and got talked into changing to EE when my mobile contract came up for renewal. So wish I hadn't! Fed up with constantly seeing "no internet connection, no internet connection"
    Had to wait weeks for an engineer to come out to tell me that there is nothing wrong, it could be the BT line and if they find no fault I will have to pay. Can't wait for my contract to end!!

    Awful customer service. 30 minutes wait to get through to a rude, abrupt and impatient worker! Further 30 minutes pulling wires out, sticking paper clips into the back of router, rebooting etc. End result, told cannot fix and hung up!

    Next day I ring cancellations, they try every trick in book to keep me as a customer but when they failed to convince me, they now keep me waiting for days to release a Mac key which I need to change supplier. Avoid at all costs!!!!

    Awful broadband speeds and even worse customer service. Excuses for poor speed ranged from "a problem at the exchange" to "it must be something your doing wrong". Changed provider = no more issues. They really don't care about customer service or customer retention. Avoid!

    Do not do it to yourself. Even when I am the ONLY person as home and I am RIGHT next to the router, it still does not work.

    AVOID EE BROADBAND.
    Switched from BT to EE and nothing but problems from day 1. Their level 1 help kept telling me line speed was OK and would not accept it kept dropping out. Got through to Level 2 who insisted on an Openreach visit even though it was clear it wasn't a fault on the line (since perfect service with BT). After 3 call outs and an unacceptable amount of bad service they agreed to release me early from my contract. Switched back to BT today, no faults.

    Utter trash, avoid at all costs.

    None of the technical support that you will get to talk to have any real idea about how Internet infastructure works outside of the general help booklets they receive to help them with the majority of low level issues.

    Draconian TMP's leading to horrendous (and I mean utterly moronic) latency spikes, short term dropouts and packet loss to every service imaginable because as stated before - whoever set up their Net Inf in the first place must have been a tool, as in - an actual tool, like a wrench or screwdriver with the most basic of cognitive functions.

    If you are in desperate need of a stress enhancement tool, or a reason to really let off some steam - apply today for EE broadband.

    If however you are a sane, normal human being - avoid them like the bubonic plague and act like it's the mid 1300's.

    Two months without reliable connection. Was told same answer over and over again but no action. Rude customer services staff who cut me off a few times. I would not go with this provider. There is no value for money. Worst mistake of my broadband life. Indeed not all broadband providers are created equal. Run for your sanity.

    Do not go to EE unless able to get fibre as the speed is terrible. BT engineering called out to fault find and there was no fault EE set the rate low. Rate reset but two days later guess what rate reduced again. Very polite customer service most of the time although this will not help you get acceptable broadband. Please do not risk EE. Three years with SKY without problems why why did I do this.

    Requested move to new address weeks ago. Telephone is working fine but no broadband. I have spent countless hours on hold to ee customer service who will transfer me on average 5 times a call, hang up on my calls routinely and never return calls After promising to do so. Extremely rude customer service. I am still paying for the broadband but have no idea when I will get the service. For some reason no one at ee can tell me what the problem is or when it might get fixed. Waste of money, waste of time. Infuriating! Time to switch I think

    The customer service is the worst ever! I went to a EE store to cancel my broadband but I was informed that I can only do it calling EE. I called, spoke with a Peter that refused to identify himself saying he doesn't give his surname on the phone! Ended up cancelling the broadbad but got no document proving that i've done it and was informed I would need to pay 29.60£ disconnection fee! EE is very easy when you want to start a contract but so bad when you want to leave that make you never want to come back!

    What a disgraceful company ee really are. After having nothing but issues ee have arranged 5 engineer visits , not once have they showed up - instead you jist sit and wait for nobody. I then moved home and yes you guessed it no boradband went live or phone line on our moving date. 3 weeks later it finally goes live. So i submit a complaint about 5 missed appointments and i wanted compensating. So my complaint is ongoing and after 7 months of lies i got a solicitor to contact them ,they suddenly spring into action, no only joking! They just lied my to solicitor, eventually i get a call offering compensation way off the value im out of pocket. Then today after being told on the phone under no terms would they stop or suspend my service whilst thu resolve there issues with me. Low and behold today my broadband account was ceased. After only speaking to ee every other day and being reassured everything is fine they goe and do this to us.. Ive never known such disgusting customer service in my life. They promise the earth but cant deliver any honestly at all. I am at my wits end with ee. Its just incompetance above and beyond.spent all day being cut off and left on hold. I achieved nothing except speaking to 11 people and getting myself so wound up with there shambolic call centre. Any help would be appreciated .

    Im not a violent man but my god id love to scream in their ceo's face and give them a full feeling of they have made me feel. They thus now threaten me with contractual charges for ceasing my service which i never asked to be ceased.

    EE consistently keeps dropping and loosing wifi connection. I bought a smart tv few months ago and only used it once to watch catch up because it's persistently goes off and looses the programme. I also watched Netflix and it's impossible to watch a movie. After 5pm their download speed drops to almost nothing - they do advertise that they drop download speed but I didn't think it would be this bad ie difficult to watch a YouTube clip.
    My router is in my lounge..I loose wifi in my bathroom (8meter away) and loose wifi in my bedroom(15 meter away).. I had to buy another router for upstairs. It ain't the area I love in because all internet providers I've had in the past have been fine in every room. It's basically EE's connection. I've called them a few times but given up as I keep hearing the same answers. Basically I'm stuck with this horrendous service!

    Moved houses. Called them up. They said 10 days. However, I kept waiting around and being passed around for 2 months among people who had absolutely no clue what they were doing. Multiple times I was told I would get a call back - didn't happen. When I finally had enough - at the time of writing this review - they said I couldn't cancel because [insert badly explained nonsense]. I have never in my life seen a company treat a customer like this.

    After a sales call from EE I agreed to sign up for broadband for 1 year and would pay in full including line rental upfront/ first billing date.
    EE sent 2 routers neither worked, they set up 2 accounts and billed me over £395. Then despite me notifying them of the issue that they were billing me again as I cancelled the 2nd contract account of which, i never authorised to be opened. Now I'm still awaiting a refund and they've since taken out more money.!! It's been going on over a month.
    I can't seem to get hold of someone with authority who can send me a refund and not just a credit on the ceased account that I don't have access too. Appalling service.

    I wish I read those reviews 4 months ago! Got EE broadband in February and here were are not even at the end of June, I’ve called to cancel and I’m not even mad about that cancellation fee. For me to no longer have this broadband, I’ll gladly pay! Working from Home had been hell with this quality broadband and I owe SKY an apology for moving! I never had any issues with SKY but since my phone was with EE, they totally bamboozled me with their deal offers whilst they had me on the phone! Lord, never again! If you ever call a company about one thing and they try to sell you another whilst they got you on, DROP THE CALL

    I've had internet at crappy hotels better than this :l They wont even help fix it, they tell you it's your fault and tell you to unplug everything and plug it back in. That isn't going to help their problems. Don't bother with them, it's not worth it.
