    I've read the negative reviews here, maybe I've been lucky but to be honest I can't find that much wrong with it. Customer service is a bit slow and the wifi signal is a bit weak but it's only gone off once briefly in the 6 months I've been with them and the 67mps is a constant so for £22 plus unlimited phone it's a bloody good deal

    Firstly I will say I have not yet switched so that I cannot comment on Speed and Reliability.

    I am in the process of switching to NOW, butt after reading the awful reviews I rang up to cancel in the cooling off period. Upon calling them, they picked up straight away, Kara I believe was the ladies name, very polite, very helpful, informed me that the team I needed weren't yet online and offered to call me back once they were in for me to complete my request. As promised, I received a call back and she put me through to the relevant team. Around 2 minutes wait or so, a chap called Jamie answered. I raised my concerns about the poor reviews in particular the router issues, he was informative about the speed I could receive and that all of the providers would have to go through the same lines. He reassured my that I can try the service for 31 days to see if I would be satisfied and also threw in the entertainment package upon request. I am aware that they are the sales team and the goal is to keep me, but I think it is fair for me to give them a try for myself as my experience has only been positive. The other reason I like them is that there is no fee for moving house as we may be doing in 6 months. I will look forward to updating the review once connected but I have to say well done so far, certainly service leaps and bounds ahead of virgin and talktalk! To be continued...

    Worst decision Ive made for broadband. If you're thinking about it,... Run away...run away fast.
    Intermittent connectivity. No customer support to resolve it.
    BT and Talktalk must be rubbing thier hands when customers go flooding back to them.

    These people should be banned from operating because as 99% of their feedback is disgusting I have had all the problems listed still waiting for refund for being charged for a router I never had, they keep making stupid excuses and now not replying to emails so they are scammers and thieves

    I just read a previous review here after my own awful experience and it clearly is an issue with NOW broadband DO NOT USE THEM.

    I signed up for Now Broadband in November 2021 with a setup date at the start of December. A few days before setup I called because I hadn’t received a router but was told it would be there within days.

    A few further texts and calls and start of January I was again told setup would be within days and in any case I’ll receive automatic compensation of £5 a day for the delay (perfect as that would cover the premium I’ve been paying out of contract waiting for setup).

    Today I received a text saying my order had been cancelled so panicked and called Now. Now have informed me they incorrectly put through the request for broadband service to openreach. As a result firstly I am apparently not entitled to ANY compensation for a 6wk delay, secondly I have been asked to completely re-submit for Now Broadband. Unsurprisingly I’ve decided not to use them as my provider.

    6wks of wasted time, incorrect information, and horrible customer service who said unless I use their broadband I’m not entitled to any compensation for inconvenience and all the lies and additional costs I’ve faced.

    Absolutely ridiculous service and promises were nt kept! Ordered December, and received notification to say that connection would go live on the 4th January. The hub arrives, and not connected on the 4th. Call customer services, and get told there is a delay and would take 48 hours.. call them every for the next four says.. get told 'it is with our back office team'. There is no escalation or priorisation, and just called them again.. it is now Friday, get told 'it might be next week now but we cannot promise this'. Not willing to wait 2 weeks or 3rd week. Worst thing is NowTv do not update the customer, I have called them every day for an update, absolutely awful experience. Ridiculous!!! I have now cancelled the order and service! Cannot be trusted!

    Speed and reliability OK, but within a week of starting with NowTV I've been receiving a constant stream of scam calls from "Sky Broadband" (multiple landline numbers but obviously from overseas judging by the accents) claiming that my internet speed is slow and they have to update my router by getting me to download some dodgy software onto my 'phone or PC. Never had the problem with my previous provider - which leads me to question why it started so quickly after the switch? Will persevere but if it doesn't get better soon I'll switch providers.

    I was a returning customer to Now Broadband having previously not had an issue with them, however if you're a returning customer they cannot link your email address to your account as your email address will be linked to the original no longer active account. I have never experienced this problem at any other company.

    I pointed out that it is illegal to take payment from anyone without first providing an invoice, but this doesn't seem to bother them in the slightest and their only solution is for me to create a new email address just for them. I don't see why I should inconvenience myself to help them not to break the law. They just shouldn't break the law.

    Anyway, whilst that argument has been ongoing for 10 months, last week my Internet became intermittent over a 2 day period... 2 green lights, middle light flashing orange. Advice online suggests this is a fault with the line, but when I rang I spoke with the most unpleasant customer service agent whom suggested the plan I had was only strong enough to connect one mobile phone and wasn't enough to stream TV on. I had used the Internet for just that for over 2 years without incident so I a) don't see why it would suddenly cause a fault and b) cannot believe any Internet provider has a plan only strong enough for a single mobile phone and nothing else.

    The customer service agent was so horrifically rude to me that I actually believe Now Broadband cut me off to get rid of me.

    I now understand why they are in no hurry to solve the email linkage issue - its because returning customers is a myth for this company. Nobody goes back. Definitely nobody should.

    Was looking for a flexible option for to my situation. Did not want to commit to 12/18/24 month contract. This provider seemed to be the solution. FabFibre £20 a month broadband only. Cash up front for installation and first month. Installer could not put router into living room. He had to install into a bedroom. Showed me good service at 36 Mbps. But... When you moved away from router the service dropped off to less than 12 Mbps sometimes as low as 5 Mbps. Customer service say promise delivered but as it was unusable we'll give you a tenner for your troubles. Didn't accept was going to cancel but with 1 week before Christmas was not ideal. Took the increased offer of £15 and bought a mesh booster system at £118. Beware promises delivered but not usable. Unless you can sit in your bedroom kitchen or wherever they deign to install.
