    We were moving home so phoned JLB (Plusnet) to cancel my broadband but wanted to keep email account. Plusnet assured me this was possible. However when our broadband contract finished our email account was destroyed! All our emails are permanently lost. I would never use JLB or Plusnet ever again. Their customer service is appalling. If you are a JLB customer BEWARE … backup your emails.

    I was off contract with John Lewis Broadband for about 3 years when out of the blue they contacted me to get me back on contract now now now, telling me to stick with my current speeds as fibre broadband was not available in my area. As I found out a month later, it had just become available, just not via John Lewis. Cue early termination charge I had to pay so I could get fibre to the property. Gangster like behaviour from John Lewis!

    Only give it 1 star as I couldn’t give any less. Moved house and had to change supplier to get fast broadband, what a joke. Telephone line connected immediately which is required for internet connection. Almost 3 weeks have passed with various messages being sent back and forwards and I am still waiting. After a stressful house move this is not acceptable. I have used John Lewis services for years and had excellent customer service, what has happened! Will change as soon as I can.

    Dire. Never achieved advertised speeds despite an hour jumping through many hops with rechnical support. Then accused me of not helping! No cost reduction offered - instead a far slower service!
    Took a while to acknowledge my cancellation and still billed after leaving - threatening debt collection agencies.
    How the good name of John Lewis can be associated with this is beyond me!
    AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!

    The customer service of JLB is a disgrace.

    I called them 2 months in advance to move my broadband to my new apartment and they keep delaying my order and not telling me if they can install the broadband in time or not. They don't give customers straight answers about any queries just say sorry for the delay.

    I thought if I call them in advance that will help to make sure that I won't stay without internet after moving but it seems like they are not capable of providing a good customer service.

    Avoid. Avoid. Avoid. Firstly, they messed up processing my order which meant I incurred increased charges from my old provider. Secondly, they never actually flipped my broadband 'on' when they were supposed to. Now it seems that they can't even disconnect my service after I moved to a new supplier because they put their prices up. An utter shambles from the beginning to the... well I was going to say 'end', but apparently they still think they're providing my broadband.

    I have never got the speed which is shown as the minimum. When they send someone out to look at issues no one ever seems to come. The customer services are closed more than they are open despite a 24/7 service stated on support pages.

    Just go somewhere else!
