    This was genuinely the most awful, stressful, harrowing experience I've had with any customer service that I've experienced in my life. My WiFi has been delayed for over a month, the engineer completely missed the first appointment and they expect you to stay at home for an entire day to wait for them to come (btw they might not even come). Just forget about it. Other companies are more expensive by a bit, but at least you'll actually get wifi at some point with them. If you try to leave, they tempt you with false offers which they never follow through with. One guy told me he'd call me as soon as my broadband went live to upgrade me, when I wanted to leave, but that never happened. Honestly they are just a bunch of scammers. Their internet is also slower than mobile data. Seriously don't go with them, save yourself the energy.

    AVOID AT ALL COSTS
    I have been with nowtv for almost 4 years and never had an issue however, my Internet has stopped working in my bedroom, 10ft away from the router. I've had this problem for a week and have had an engineer out and been on the phone several times regarding this matter. Each time it appears to be fixed then a few hours later, not working again. Today I've called back up as Internet isn't working again to be told there's nothing they can do and that I'm to purchase a booster which may or may not work. The "gentleman" I spoke to raised his voice at me and told me no one else could help me. I had to terminate the call and be put on hold for an additional 35 mins to speak to someone else. AVOID AT ALL COSTS

    Avoid this company at all costs. Had nothing but issues between a 4 week delay getting the box activated due to constant faults on their side, terrible customer service, no offer of compensation, and now stuck in a contract with them that we can't get out of. Forgot to change our appointment time after saying it was changed, showed up 2 hours late, didn't come with the right equipment so had to delay, didn't contact us to tell us when they were coming back, refuse to give us an actual appointment time or consider the fact people have to work during the day and can't wait about for 6 hours, absolute disgrace and will be suggestive everyone avoid this broadband.

    We've recently switched from PlusNet to NOW Broadband and are very disappointed with the speed. Despite the fact that the speed is supposed to be a guaranteed minimum of 27.7 Mbps, ours is regularly less than 10 Mbps.

    Delays in going live of more than 1week in addition to the"usual"14days. Kept blaming BT lines as in all other reviews.BT and Nowbtroadband needs to pull their act together.This 14days+longer days is what makes UK the laughing stock of the world

    RUBBISH. Go live date 10sep is a lie,see all previous review from july to aug 21. All blamed on openreach.now told it will be extended from to 13sep because not working day,then further 3days. I urge ALL of you to file complaints,take to social media and to take legal action.

    AVOID AVOID AVOID, I am going to sue them.all the reviews from july 2021 till now was bad. 14days to go live,I waited for nothing. I have the router and the line, switching on should take only minutes in other first world countries but not UK,and with NOW,they are illegal cowboys.i suggest you buy at least 2different packages,and cancel the ones like NOW or SUE them.i am planning to take legal action

    Broadband keeps dropping out. We have poor signals in all the other rooms. This replaced Vodafone and, although it's a bit quicker, it's not so reliable.

    Non existent customer service as they expect you to jump through hoops before you can possibly if you are lucky speak to anyone!

    They are absolutely atrocious so recommend avoid unless you are happy to have slow broadband and to spend ages trying to get to speak to an actual person to resolve any issues that might arise as web chat and emails are completely ignored as are the ratings they ask you to give when you have attempted but failed to contact them!
