    Unbelievable - the worse experience we have ever had!

    We have been without viable phone and broadband for 1+1/2 months (now fixed...), and the support from John Lewis has been awful.

    Honestly, DO NOT USE THEM!

    We have had promise after promise - broken.

    Promise call backs - never made.

    Promised fixes - never materialised.

    And the time spent hanging on the phone waiting for them to answer is worse than calling support based in India! And that was a major reason for going with John Lewis in the first place - UK based support, and the John Lewis name, which is normally associated with good support!

    We are very, very upset and annoyed with the whole experience.

    Very disappointed to find I had switched to get away from PlusNet only to find I was still dealing with them, complete with 30-40 minute waits and dreadful music. Pleasant people but frequent lack of knowledge and competence. Switchover was messed up, and 6 weeks late. If I had an alternative, I'd leave but there's only BT.....

    Do not touch them with a barge pole. They are awful . They have taken my money and given me nothing for it and after many phone calls and emails to their MD i have nothing. They even tried to collect my next direct debit which fortunatly I had cancelled. They haven`t heard the last of me

    Left before my contract even began, the customer service was so bad. 15 minute waits to speak to someone, awful defeaning loud music while they put you on hold or transfer you to someone else. Two out of three people I spoke to were unable to find my details. Then when I asked for confirmation in writing that the account had been cancelled, I got two 'contact us' messages requiring me to log into a website to see the reply, which I was unable to do as the password I was given didn't work.
    One operator apologised for the wait and poor customer service, saying that the company is in the process of training up another 100 operators. Ignore the Which recommendation, as the reality falls short of expectations from the JOhn Lewis brand.

    The worst provider I ever had, I discontinued the contract within the cooling period as I suggested all the crap which will follow, however they manage to delay to stop the services and I had to pay for early breaking the contract. Real hustlers, never ever again and because of them the plus net as well.

    I asked to change in early October having read a glowing report in Which magazine. I wish I hadn`t. They took my deposit and set up a direct debit with a promise of having it all done in "10 to 14 days" quote. Nothing happened so I called and they seemed unable or unwilling to help. After a couple of calls and being unable to speak to someone senior I asked to cancel the deal and return my money. Then they tried to collect my direct debit which I thankfully had stopped. They wrote asking why they hadn`t been paid!! I wrote to the MD Andy Street which was replied by the Executive Complaints team. They said someone would contact...noone did. I have taken advice from Which Legal services and have sent them a letter accordingly to ask that my monies be returned. It hasn`t and they don`t even have the courtesy to acknowledge my mail. They have taken on the wrong guy and I will sue them and shame them mark my word. I will ensure all and sundry know how they operate and are nothing short of thieves. John Lewis I held in high esteem prior to this . They are now at the top of the list for bad service. MY ADVICE IS DON`T GO NEAR JOHN LEWIS BROADBAND. Read these reviews and BEWARE.

    A follow up to the review below. Over a month without Internet despite having moved and elderly relative. The worst time to lose your connection. Spent more time on phone. 40 mins last night. Great chap. Admitted they had made another error at the start of the order and said that I would be connected in 15 mins! Joy!!! Rubbish! Still not connected and red light still on, BT says lines and exchange all working fine. What the hell shall I do next? This is really the worst company I should have connected with.

    I like many on here switched after reading that they were the best, feel like I've been stitched up good & proper. Router didn't arrive as promised, Engineer didn't arrive on the day he was supposed to. John Lewis will charge £49 if your not in to receive the Engineer. No one contacted me to let me know that the Engineer wasn't going to arrive. Cant get through on the phone to rearrange, not a clue what's going to happen next . Don't bother worse service ever & I haven't even had it installed!

    We were so sick of BT that we stupidly agreed to pay over sixty pounds a month for fibre optic broadband, what a complete disaster! They sent the cheapest router, their own engineers told us that. They NEVER answer the phone, we have poorer signal now than we did in a 1 meg area, can't even shop online. When you finally speak to customer services they can only transfer you to technical support, how many days to I have to spend on the phone getting nowhere? We have been duped, we paid for branding, John Lewis sold us out to Plusnet. Can't even cancel without being screwed. So angry.

    I would absolutely not recommend John Lewis broadband. Avoid like the plague. I spent 1 hour and 45 mins waiting to speak to their tech team the other day. And not surprisingly they failed to connect me within the 14 day period during which I can cancel my contract. So now they say I can't. They failed to call me back when they promised to. They took money from my account 14 days before my service was connected. Shockingly bad.

    I'm a new customer. It has never worked. Impossible to get Support phone answered. All help is internet based - I have no internet. Only phone line that gets answered is for new sales. Draw your own conclusions.

    Told JLB that I was moving in November -
    Still not connected at my new address. First
    contact took down the wrong address. The
    second 'had not made it visible' and the third
    is still trying. How difficult is it to change from
    one address to another three miles away!
    I have spent over two hours on the phone to
    them and they offered me a month's free service!
    I haven't been able to use it for a month!

    Two weeks of no service, still being fobbed off with the same scripts from the call centre, and they will absolutely not send an engineer to help an 87 year old customer; no she's sent a youtube video, as if she can access that, when she isn't able to upload anything. I'm amazed J Lewis allows this level of service. I'm leaving.

    I signed up for this after reading a very positive Which review. How stupid. If I could give it 0 stars I would. It is quite the worse connection, drops out continually and is so weak - we have neighbours two whole houses down the road whose broadband has more bars than ours! And FORGET trying to speak to anyone at their customer service... you will be sitting on the end of the phone for hours. Rubbish! And we're tied in for another 11 months!!!

    Unable to rate either Broadband speed or reliability as, one month on, John Lewis have yet to connect me.

    They do not answer calls, they do not answer email. They do not respond. They have taken my money and provided no service.

    In my book this is called fraud. John Lewis should be prosecuted and held to account.

    When I see their Christmas advertising and hear how much it has cost it makes me feel sick. They ought to be ashamed.

    Infact Its ZERO RATING. Horrible! Pathetic! Ordered yesterday and cancellenig today After 20 mins of horrible wait I got hold of an agent who took my details initially I called to change the engineer appointment and I was put on hold and then they disconnected the call . There was no call back .. No apology and I called again after 20 mins got to the same dept who transferred the call to another dept as I had made up my mind to cancel this pathetic service. Every time I say cancel my order , I get a mobile message on my mobile from JL saying your phone order is getting delayed and they disconnect my call. I am not a kind of person who writes reviews. But this Experience PLZ STAY AWAY UNTIL JLB grows out of its infancy.

    I ordered Broadband and a phone line to be installed back in October and here we are in December and I am still waiting for it to be connected. I have had no updates. If I call John Lewis the sales department answer calls after 1 ring - after sales and order follow up, I am on a call now - been waiting over 20 mins now and no one has answered!! This is a car crash of a service provider masked by the good reputation of the John Lewis Brand - AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!

    changed over to john Lewis after reading they were best for customer service
    this was wrong i did not know it was in fact a front for plus net until after i had it installed
    i went for super fast broadband which was far from it
    after many dealings with plusnet who could not get me the speeds i thought i would be getting i wanted to leave i was then told if i left i would have to pay till my contract expired
    so i am in effect paying for a worse service i have everything documented and at the end of my contract i shall take out a summons in the small claims court against John lewis

    On hold for an hour for the second time this week. Have only been a customer for 5 weeks and really regretting switching. Customer service is non existent - had to threaten reporting them to Ofcom over a billing issue - and now have now service for the last 24 hours. John Lewis need to review this partnership before it damages their brand.

    I have only been with JL for a month. Broadband drops out every time I use the phone. This results with a very slow download speed currently running at 112kb/s. Have had this problem for the whole four weeks. Phone JL and they fix it for a few hours ad then it starts all over again. I have been holding on the phone this evening for 58 mins and still no answer. Time to give up and have just been answered. HOORAY.

    I couldn't gain access to the internet all day yesterday and was unable to get an answer from the service team between 8 am and 11pm- at one point I held on for 40 minutes listening to tasteless crap music and a useless message telling me that I didn't have to phone in as it was possible to fix most of my problems online! I called the service team at 6 am this morning and finally got an answer - I was told that JL mainframe had reset my router's code and that I had to reboot it - I was told how to do this and ten minutes later normal service was resumed! Later I discovered that the JL website had crashed owing to Black Friday demand. Are JL trying to do too much with too little equipment? I gather from other websites that there have been problems with the JL website for at least two years. If the JL broadband service does crash again would it be asking too much for JL to put a recorded message on the helpline explaining what the problem is instead of leaving customers to wonder for 24 hours what on earth is going on?

    I would strongly recommend that anyone thinking of joining John Lewis Broadband read all reviews for Plus Net , because that is who you will be dealing with !! I have had all sorts of customer service problems in the 3 months since I signed up with them. John Lewis PLC don't want to know about the problems and simply referred me to the customer service dept which is run by Plus Net ! They have shown total incompetence in setting up a simple direct debit and simply accused me, incorrectly ,of cancelling it. I have printed off 100 pages of communications with them and wasted days trying to make a payment to them. Their systems to pay online do not work and it is a joke trying to get through on the phone unless you have hours to wait on hold. I left talktalk just before their latest problems and feel I jumped from the frying pan into the fire!! The more I investigate ISP's , the more I realise how shambolic they all are.

    This service was okay to start with. (I joined on the basis of good service) Had problems with continual drop off for a week. Got through to the help desk, once, after waiting for 30 minutes. Supposed to have been fixed. Still have same problem. Tried to call, 4 calls totalling more than 1 1/2 hours. No response. Do not bother unless you just like listening to 80's pop music (must be aimed at there target demographic, or cheap like the service) How can they rate themselves as good. Will change provider as soon as possible. Seriously bad service.

    Admittedly fibre optic broadband has only just been installed and I was warned speeds my go up and down initially, but since I've had it I've had to phone John Lewis 4 times; each time I've waited in a queue for around 45 minutes; my broadband connection keeps cutting out; and the last few days my speed has fluctuated between 0.56mbps and 2.84mbps instead of the 34-40mbps advertised!! Not at all what I'd anticipated based on reviews read etc. Sorely disappointed.

    DIABOLICAL CUSTOMER SERVICE!
    Over the last week I have had cause to phone John Lewis Broadband helpline on numerous occasions and have experienced response times ranging from 25 minutes at the best to 50 minutes at the worst. How John Lewis can equate this with their customer service values baffles me.

    I wish that I'd read this site before signing up to JL Broadband....like others I followed the "Which?" guide about JL...not reliable advice at all, very unusually for "Which"? From wrongly quoted packages/ speeds/ failure to provide the agreed email address/ broken promises/ long waits for customer service/ to my password not working (twice) I'd give John Lewis Broadband "no stars" for satisfaction if I could. Hugely disappointing; I was quite wrong to assume that the excellent reputation of JL would apply to their broadband service...to be avoided unless you enjoy being continually disappointed.

    Absolute disaster thought I was going with a John Lewis product but turns out that John Lewis Broadband is a seperate company and what's worse JL don't care if they give poor service and turn a blind eye. It is impossible to escalate a complaint. So far we have been cut off, missed appointments, super slow fibre and a faulty phone line which I feel will never be resolved. The icing on the cake is that one of the engineers broke my front door. John Lewis and JLB say it's nothing to do with them so we have now got to deal with BT who frankly could care less. I feel that the hole thing is a breach of trade descriptions by John Lewis.

    Scrape away the thin veneer of John Lewis and you have BT (which owns PlusNet, which runs JLBB). Awful speed, awful service when I moved. Awful service when I first signed up over a year ago. OK, they are nice on the phone but that does little to hide their incompetence.

    Awful. It took 6 weeks and many phone calls to get it set up. They said the phone line needed to be reconnected, but this turned out to be true. It didn't seem to work all that well, but at the end of September it started cutting out and off. We wrote to them several times and have also phoned. Their latest reply is to say there is nothing they can do. So we are sending it back pdq.

    When I moved house I decided to switch from sky to John Lewis Broadband Service based on the Which review. It has been an abysmal experience of customer service. It takes about 30-40 minutes to get through to them by telephone. Unfortunately the online query service doesn't seem to really work in the way it should in that my queries just languished with key parts of the message being ignored. I only managed to get results when I rang through to John Lewis complaints department and stressed that I had got nowhere with them and it was they who chased the query. If I had not have done that I have no idea who I would have ever got the problem resolved! I would never recommend.

    Absolutely shocking, as with other disgruntly customers, I read the Which report and aswell as the JL brand, thought that they would be better than BT - how very wrong I was, an utter disaster, makes life working from home impossible. John Lewis should remove their brand name from this immediately as it will ruin ther previously good record of excellent service. This service is a disgrace.

    TERRIBLE experience. Had to chase to get it set up again and again. Finally live and 3 days later they "accidentally" cut me off - no phone no broadband! The support line has a wait time of minimum 30 mins but usually longer and I held for ages on 4 separate occasions. They couldn't reinstate the line for over a week due to their error. I've asked other providers and it will cost £59 to reinstate my line and I have to have a new number too - unbelievable inconvenience. Worst of all they just didn't care less. So now I have no BB for another 7 days!
    Don't risk it with JLBB until they have got their act together!

    Changed to JL after reading Which review. Wish I had stayed with BT. Even though their customer service is abysmal and pricey at least their broadband speed was reasonable. JL is dire. Don't switch!
