    Installed yesterday but couldn’t get it working so someone else sent out today to so say fix the problem. Disappeared for two hours after telling me that he would be back “ in a minute”. Rang customer service to ask what was happening and was told via a script how to reset the router??? Told them that I shouldn’t have to do anything as it was the responsibility of the “ engineer “.
    He reappeared eventually and got it working but moaned because I chased it up which resulted in me escorting him off the property.
    I would not recommend Gigaclear for their customer service. Time will tell if their fibre is better than their employees.

    Have been waiting 7 months from first appointment for a fault fix, dozens of phone calls and emails, dismissed with platitudes and still given no functioning service or date to fix it. It seems the field team ate a law to themselves and customer service have no ability to make anything happen with them. All adds up to abysmal customer service.

    We have had Gigaclear since it was available in our village and have the opportunity to cancel after July this year which we will be doing. My wife plays Bridge online at a high level but the regular drop and reconnection means her game position is lost affecting her league position. I was attracted by the introductory offer and the 300mps (you never achieve this max 120mps via supplied router and we have 3 nodes) my wife says she never had issue with Plusnet at average 30-45mps and why did I change. Roll on July. Customer service is rubbish.

    I was the first instal in this postcode and I waited about 9 months for them to sort out issues. First saying there was a break further back down the line and then eventually rewiring the modem. So there obviously was no problem.Consequently I had to set it up myself. I paid for a contract for 300Mb but only recently tested it to find I struggle to get 200 Mb. I spoke to them when the contract was up for renewal but they told me their contracts are for speeds of either 200 or 400. I would have to pay more for the 400 (which I probably can't get). If I opt for 200 I will have to send back one of my Velop wifi extenders.Of course I could have cancelled and re-subscribed as a new customer for about half the price (I thought we'd stopped all that)but I would be without broadband while I waited for re-connection.
    I'm pretty stuck as there are no other providers of superfast broadband in my village.
    Not a great experience

    Be very wary about the Gigaclear service, connection to the property speeds are as advertised, but nothing else, and Customer Service is adequate, and be aware that your 14 day consumer rights only apply if your installation is within 14 days of the order, not 14 days of the installation!!

    I was the first install in my area, and the physical activity was completed with no issues and the team involved were very good, but the work wasn’t completed, as they didn’t have the correct kit to be able to draw the cable to my property as the initial install was performed to the wrong cabinet. This was resolved within a couple of hours, but i had to chase them to activate the service, which took a further 2 days!
    As a fairly switched on IT professional, the installation of the Linksys Router and Wi-Fi node was reasonably straightforward, but this may not be the case for everybody and they don’t really cover the installation of the kit.
    The Router is consistently connected to the outside world at more than the 600Mb that i am paying for, but unless you are cable connected to your Router, you aren’t going to get anywhere near that speed (and as the Router only has one port beyond that needed for the Modem connection, you will need to buy a 1GbE switch to connect anything else you can that is close to the Router, more unaccounted for expense basically). If i stand by the Router and Speedtest.net from various devices over Wi-Fi, the best ive achieved is 230Mb, and testing different devices one after the other from the same location gives wildly differing speeds, even the same device tested a number of times gives no common speed.
    The main issue here i believe is the Linksys equipment they provide, its not great, and i would say that its only adequate.
    I use powerline plugs to extend my ‘wired’ network capability, and again speeds are highly variable, but this clearly depends upon the quality and age of your power network in your property.
    The upside is that its cheaper, during the offer period, than any other provider in my area (BT infrastructure, so not much competition), and if you are close enough to the router you get decent speeds, but not consistently, and the speeds are generally twice what i got from BT, so its acceptable.
    Not sure how good it will look after the initial 18 month contract when the price will more than double, im hoping that a ‘im going to cancel as it costs too much’ will elicit a better deal when the time comes.

    Speed does not come close to what was purchased. Get multiple connection drops of 30+ seconds EVERY day. Try to contact customer services and get spoken down to by an idiot who is incapable of basic trouble shooting and instead clutches at straws to fob you off by explaining how it's your equipment at fault (It's not, I've been a network engineer for over 25 years... The tool literally didn't actually ask any questions about what was happening, just asked things like "What type of phone do you have? Oh, Android is it, yeah there's a really obscure fault with those that means it's not our network").

    Signed up for 900mb in October. Installation was good, team were efficient and polite. The actual service is atrocious, on average we get around 10mb when it works, which is rare. Raised a fault, no update for two weeks. Locked in for 18 months, but have already started to look for an alternative to this falsely advertised rubbish

    I've seen the promised 300Mbps using the BT Wholesale Speedcheck tool on about 3 occaisions. Other occaisions it's been really consistently below 100Mbps and often below 20. Service desk are extremely unhelpful, simply trotting out the same mantra "we only garauntee 300Mbps on a hard wire to our router" In the last week it's been so bad I've been dropped out of conference calls (without video) on three occaisions

    This morning I have barely 10Mbps wifi standing right next to their router.

    DON'T BUY
    Utterly disappointing

    I have been with Gigaclear for 4 weeks now. The first three weeks are fine. Noticiblly faster than my old 40Mbps DSL broadband. On 1st August, there was an general fault in Oxfordshire, my boardband was down until 5th August. Fist engineers came checked the fibre box, internet was back for 10mins, once he left we had another two days no internet. On 8th August, connections is back but very unstanble and very slow, especially for uploading. Next eingeer's visit is booked on 10th.

    Costum service refused to transfer me to a supervisor and told me a supervisor's call back will take 3-4 days. Not impressed at all.

    Recently moved to an area supplied by Gigaclear. All set up fine and wired speeds to router are superb.

    However, try getting in contact with them and you get nothing. Emailed them once to ask about extra wireless nodes - no response. Second email to say how rubbish the router and wireless mesh is - no response.

    And the Linksys Velop is rubbish. Constant drop outs and buffering when it’s supposed to serve the whole house flawlessly. Recently spent the money on Netgear Orbi and it works so much better.

    So, if you never need to contact them, you’ll be happy. If you do, be prepared for a hugely frustrating experience.

    Terrible customer service experience, no communication within the company, after a weeks spent on the phone with them and an engineer visit we're actually worse off than before I called them. Months later, after we are told well get an upgrade due to all of the issues, no such upgrade materializes but they still set up a monthly charge for an extra router? I'm sorry for one or two helpful people I spoke to on many many calls but I'd stay away from Gigaclear!

    I was a new customer in October. Connection has been abysmal - constantly dropping in and out, frequently unable to use the internet. When we complained they advised buying an additional node, which we did. This has made virtually no difference. Very dissatisfied.

    We've had 2 outages in a year and a half, always recieving a text within minutes explaining the issues. Gigabit speed is consistent all the time and ping times are low, wireless speed around 350Mbps on their included Velop router which fills our large house fine. Static IP available too.

    I have been a customer for two years and I am really delighted. Very fast speeds with only the occasional dropouts. But the point that really distinguishes them is that our service was cut off when a workman at our home accidentally severed the fibre optic line. They came out and fixed in within 4 hours.....I'm still astonished. Thank you.

    Been a rural customer for two years after horrendous service from Bt via landline. Super fast broadband is almost unheard of in many rural areas and I cannot thank them enough. Just upgraded to their new router and the help from their service centre was excellent especially for a 70+ computer idiot. Ok there are times when there is outage but they always inform and at such times there is always 4g .

    The customer service provided by this company is appalling. I have registered my interest in receiving a service but got no reply (as had been promised). After speaking to an operative I was put on hold whilst something was checked and after 30 mins on hold I gave up. An email has not been answered. Maybe Gigaclear doesn’t want to provide me with a service, but now I don’t want them to given that if there was a problem I would have no confidence that they would address it efficiently (or at all). So it is BT instead.

    I signed up with these guys just over a month ago on their biggest package which states I would be getting an average speed of 900mb up and down... 3 days after it went live I was still getting speeds less than their smallest package (150MB) - I was getting 109mb up/down. Now I know that the speeds are not guaranteed to be 900mb being a home broadband service but when I was with Virgin I always got close to the specified speeds. Then the line was down for a day and half due to a damaged fibre cable which they can't be blamed for - but no compensation offered, as with virgin media or BT when there is a significant outage.

    Anyway, I raised a support ticket which I explained everything in detail and all the necessary steps take at my end (I've worked in IT for 18 years). A rep from the company replied 2 weeks later - not even having read my initial support request properly and asked if I had tried all the things I had already stated... I replied instantly and have heard nothing for another 2 weeks.

    On top of that, the line is grossly unstable and often hangs when watching YouTube or other streaming services. The same services work fine when using my mobile phone's 3G connection...

    I've since swapped out all the equipment they supplied (Linksys VELOP) with my own enterprise equipment and the line speed is significantly faster, but still very up and down in terms of speed and stability. As an example back-to-back speed tests will yield between 100mb to 300mb - the results always grossly different even when tests are performed one after another.

    As for the customer services - I've read other pre-lockdown pre-covid reviews that also have the same experience of no response. I would not recommend this company at all based on my initial experience. I am really disappointed with the service or lack of..

    Without Broadband for 3 days is acceptable
    Without Broadband for 24 hours. Big gap between 9am and 4pm when no updates provided. Turns out that their contracts say that 3 days outage is perfectly acceptable and anything less doesn't warrant compensation. That explains why there was no urgency and told resources wouldn't be available to fix outage until lunchtime the following day. Just not good enough.

Been promised 4 dates to get this up and running but they never turn up then have to wait another month for the next supposed available date. No customer service what so ever - TERRIBLE COMPANY..AVOID AT ALL COSTS

    over 2 weeks now since had install team fit and still have fault and no idea when it going to be fixed. ordered 300mbs line and had fitted. all i got is purple light, told fault and team is fixing, ever time i call in i get excuse. i got billed to as it went blue light for about 10 mins and activated and then went red light. £39 month for no service or connection. id like to give good review and maybe il edit this when or if fixed. tempted to go to ombudsman to have it looked into or cancelled. shame as ISP speed here through bt is slow.

    This is an update to a review I left nearly two months ago. Gigaclear finally called to arrange our installation and in fairness, the men turned up on time and did an excellent job in just a few hours.

    I purchased the 300Mbs package and my average upload/download is indeed 300Mbs, often more at 320Mbs up and down, which is amazing and very fast indeed. Since the installation, the service has been rock solid. I added another Linksys mesh router (Gigaclear supply two) to cover the entire house and honestly, from a broadband perspective, I'm very happy indeed.

    But... there's always got to be a downside. They billed me the cost of the installation and I could either pay it with my first DD in a couple of weeks or pay it now and get it over and done with. I chose to pay it straight away (it was several hundred pounds and I had the money waiting in my account). Of course, they also took the same amount with my DD two weeks later. I ended up having to call my bank to claim it back again.

    So the upshot is, the internet service itself appears to be reliable and as fast as advertised. Customer service is still pretty shocking though.

    The customer service of this company is terrible, they are condescending and patronising. I have been without my broadband from them for a month now with just excuses and no action. They hold a monopoly in rural connections and act as though you should be grateful. I Cancelled my contract with them as I can not be without reliable Internet as I need it for work.

    No stars whatsoever. Everyone else in our village was connected up months ago. Despite endless calls we are still unconnected. The cable was laid along our lane and there is a gigaclear box on our land by our driveway. (numbers on the box EN124 and B125). We keep getting different stories. The latest is about needing permission to cross neighbour's land, when there is a cable and box by our driveway.Has someone made a mistake that no one wants to own up to? What on earth is going on?

    This company is really very poor and doesn't appear to know what it is doing. We moved to the edge of a village and repeatedly checked the Gigaclear website for our new address which stated "Great News! Your Gigaclear connection is now ready to be activated." Once we moved in and signed up, we were told that actually, no, the connection didn't even exist and we'd have to wait a month for a site survey. The survey was eventually conducted and then we repeatedly had to contact them to get the quote. Our landlord had a few questions about the installation of the fibre and after a month of emailing and phoning them, we are no closer to those questions being answered. Every time we phone them (don't email, you'll never get a response), we are told that the person we had been speaking to is not available and we have to repeat the entire conversation with someone new, who apparently can't bring anything up on their computer about our previous conversations. They then inform us that someone will phone us back later that day. Guess what - they almost never do! So we phone up the next day and repeat the whole process. It appears that they don't actually know what they are doing and just want to fob us off as quickly as possible and make it someone else's problem.

    So after three months, we are no closer to getting Gigaclear installed, although from the other reviews on this site, perhaps we have dodged a bullet?! I can't speak about the reliability and speed of the connection, but their customer service is appalling, practically non-existent. What would happen if we had the fibre installed and had a problem? I shudder to think. £50 a month is not cheap and that's after the £650 it would cost to install their fibre... for that, I would expect top-notch support and service and I don't think Gigaclear are capable of providing that.

    I'm sure if you moved in to a property that was already Gigaclear-enabled and it was that or nothing, you'd probably be ok (if the alternative was nothing). But if you ever need to contact them about anything, don't say you weren't warned!

    The customer services element is shocking. In fact I not sure they know what Customer Service is.
    Nobody can help you, you get passed around and around and just told the same story.
    Our village recently got fibre installed, over 100 houses can get it, yet 6 houses in the village cant. They ay we have to wait around 2 years for them to test...…. just doesn't make sense
    Plus nobody will ever call you back, exploring other options

    What can I add to these reviews.. I have never received the 300Mb as promised for any length of time and have been battling poor customer service and ineptitude for almost a year. I am listing my speeds on twitter (colwobs33) and am doing the WIRED SPEED TO THE NODE and also wireless speed to my laptop with just that using wireless.. If you complain often enough you'll get a free node, complain a bit more and you'll get the network switch you need cos the node only has one ethernet port available for any wired connections, and you need everything possible connected by LAN cables.

    Gigaclear are dreadful with customer service useless. Yes there are individuals that are helpful, but most don’t care and just want to fob you off.
    We were out for 2 weeks in November and less than 3 months later out for 2 weeks again with no sign of it being fixed as they need to dig up the road - again because the cables haven’t been laid deep enough and are just below the surface. They’ve cut costs to the detriment of providing a reliable service. The offer of compensation is irrelevant, a reliable service is what’s needed! If you have an alternative provider, avoid Gigaclear!

    We had a service engineer come out to inspect our property to install the fibre connection in July 2019. Despite a number of emetic emails saying that they were busy with our enquiry and that they just needed the approval of engineering we have heard nothing more.So 8 months of waiting and chasing and a very poor response. I think that their management team of Delivery Director, Nathan Rundle and Drew Ritchie as chief operating officer needs rebooting. But one should ask their CEO Gareth Williams why they cannot deliver.

    I signed up to the 900 mbps package which I received for 1 week. Following an outage my speed is now 1/4 of what is contracted. Calls and emails to resolve this are ignored I am stuck in a never ending loop between customer service and engineering. No one ever returns my calls. Although the connection is better speedwise than plusnet (12mbps) that is not the point, I was sold a service I am contracted to which I am not receiving.

    I pay for a business broadband with 24hr call to fix. They cant get an engineer out for 11 days!!
    Nothing they can do because they are all on holiday. Fault reported 23rd December so i get they may busy but 23rd/ 24th are working business days, as are 27th,30th and 31st Jan. Not for Gigaclear apparently who let all their engineers have 2 weeks holiday! But their paying customers are told to try and buy a Vodafone WiFi dongle and that should get you get through! Not for business PC users with no WiFi capability it isn't. Oh and they will give a months free subscription and pay any WiFi costs. Really unhelpful, and clearly no business sense at all.

    The speeds are good, when they work, but therein lies the problem. Multiple outages every month, it's like living in Russia in the 1970s, and when the outages occur their customer service is appalling. Expensive, and unreliable, therefore avoid where possible.
