    I signed up for broadband on 10th March 2022. Late evening of 10th March I got a text saying there was a problem to contact you lines were closed so I had to wait until the next day. I was made to believe the matter was resolved until Wednesday 16th March when I got another message to say there was yet another problem. I again had to telephone where I was told my land line was a different sort to what JohnLewis use so my order had been cancelled and upon calling a new order was placed. Then today 19th March a further message relating to yet another problem… this isn’t looking good lines are not open on a weekend so I now have to wait until Monday to try and resolve the issue. It should be three strikes but we will see. When my service should be going live from signing up it is looking like the order keeps being cancelled and resigned from JohnLewis side. it is just constant delay and hassle I could do without.

    Do not bother! As other reviewers have mentioned the speed is absolutely awful, despite several calls and weeks of trying to get this resolved I have now given up. This is giving John Lewis itself a bad name

    I can only rate customer service and my overall dissatisfaction as John Lewis failed to deliver broadband service. I am a John Lewis fan but their broadband association significantly undermines their brand (as does their home insurance). Customer service was appalling and confusing as John Lewis and Plusnet do not seem to communicate with each other. They cancelled my order, promised a refund which I had to chase a month later, then sent me two cheques (only cashed one).

    You do not get the service you pay for and they are not interested in helping put it right. Our home is capable of getting wifi throughout the whole house, unfortunately john Lewis only provided for our living room and even then the speed was so poor.
    I can't emphasize enough, save yourself the headache and the cash, go elsewhere for your wifi. They just don't provide it and the customer service is shockingly bad and they blatantly lie to you. I wish I could give 0 stars.

    Initially when I took on this supplier all was well - the speed was acceptable and service reliable. However in the last 2-3 months the company has disappeared and does not reply. Instead it has instead doubled its charges well outside the acceptable levels. The service remains the same. If you need good reliable service at reasonable price the avoid this provider. It is not even operated by John Lewis but masquerades as John Lewis.

    If there’s one thin I hate it is people that don’t care when you are or,I feel hard Tom make money and paying for a service. John Lewis is an typical example of customer service that simply don’t care about their customers. It’s a shame because John Lewis scores as one of the highest in my book when it comes to providing thee best service in the retail sector. In the broadband area I can only assume they have dreadful management. Bad management always results in poor service from star.

    I logged this ticket because my broadband connection kept dropping. I’ve not had a single response back. It’s now under 2Mbs so I might as well go back to the days of using modems. Even worse is they expect me to put up with this and pay fibre connectivity rates.

    This is poor service at a new level and John Lewis should get out of this sector and quickly. I realise it’s down to Open Reach and there’re generally useless but an update would have been nice.

    John Lewis use Plusnet for the infrastructure.

    I will be moving to another provider when my contract expires. Shame on you John Lewis. I was expecting so much more

    This review relates to my sjohnlewis (waitrose) email account. it used to be excellent - now total waste of time. Totally unimpressed. From reviews here and on Trustpilot it appears that I am not alone.I would not want to even award 1 star
