    I am due to move house in 1 month. I called them a few weeks ago to schedule this and even had email confirmations to say that the broadband will be switched on the correct date. They shut off my broadband a month early and couldn't get it back. They then said it would take up to 2 weeks to get back, until someone else took the last spot in the green box outside. Now I am without broadband for a month until I move. Thanks NOW TV!

    Takes most of day to get through to customer service and just found out that caller withhold and call baring is extra , looks cheap on face of things but bits like this add's to the price. Broadband not the fastest either. Can't wait for contact to end and I'm gone.

    I'm coming to the end of 18 month contract and can't wait to leave. My main gripe is the pathetic wifi signal and lack of ports with the router. Also fed up with Internet dropping out. I don't bother calling about it because customer service leave a lot to be desired and it eventually comes back. I could live with that but not the rubbish router. Bradband speed OK most of the time.

    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.

    There is problems constantly it can work and then suddenly speed I'm getting us 0.56mb/s and then back again to 70. I've been told by two ppl at now tv that the routers they provide are old and unable to maintain the speed they promise but when trying to raise with someone to get a better router the managers insists that the information is not correct.

    Their broadband is the worst on the market. It is even worse than TalkTalk and that is really saying something. Even loading a webpage takes forever, and forget about streaming Netflix or Prime. It is pot luck as to whether you can even log into them. Never ever again will I use this company, so unbelievably disappointing. They do not have enough channels to run their broadband through so you sometimes get on sometimes not, and their routers are weak and wet, so the signal is ridiculous even in a small house its a weak signal.

    Router is seemingly useless outside any room it’s in. Speed is as advertised so can’t really complain there. Customer service is ridiculously bad. I submitted a complaints form two days after installation (bearing in mind I had a 2 week period available to cancel with no charge or repercussions) and they contacted me after 18 days!

    Hilariously bad. If I weren’t moving again soon I would’ve cancelled after day one due to bad router.

    So far I'm very disappointed with capabilities of Now broadband service.
    I already had a "Nowtv" box and thought it would work really well with Now broadband, it does not. The box performance is very slow compared to previous broadband supplier which surprised me.
    I'm having trouble even getting in touch with Now broadband, beginning to wish I'd never changed

    Presumably as NOW Broadband is actually SKY in disguise - trying to solve any problems or cancel the service is utterly impossible.
    Like Sky I have wasted hours on chat and telephone only to be frustrated by robots - these being actual living customer service agents who repeatedly ask you questions they know you cannot answer before telling you that they cannot help you.
    The only reason I found out just how bad their customer service is - is by daring to ask how much I was actually paying for the service out of contract. They refused to even tell me where or how to find this out.
    When I eventually found out by other means and told them to cancel, they refused to accept that instruction by phone or e-mail.
    When I cancelled the recurring payment from my Debit Card - they actually managed to reinstate it; effectively stealing money from me.
    Incredible - I'm astounded beyond words.

    Poor connection. Keeps cutting in and out, weak connection. Would not recommend. Will be changing over to better internet provider as soon as the contract ends.

    Range of WiFi router is terrible. I'm in an apartment and speeds in one of the bedrooms are negligible. Customer service is OK, although problems often take a lot of explanation and are relative to other firms slow. I've decided to cut my contract a couple of months short due to being dissatisfied.

    AVOID! The broadband is slow, the router is hopeless compared to the previous BT5 and customer service is slow and just fobs you off. A poor product and whilst BT wasn’t fantastic it was way better than NOW. A bad move!

    I was promised a minimum speed that has not been delivered and is looking more and more like it never will be, even though my last ISP managed to do so.

    They changed my phone number without telling me and without my consent even after promising me it would not change. Incorrectly billed me and the list goes on. The only good points so far is their customer service is pretty quick and they do try to be helpful. Also the reliability is quite good.

    12 months after using NowTV broadband I will leave my honest review. After being with sky for 12 months I started looking at deals, cheaper the better. Its only 2 of us in a house so I'm not that bothered about speed. But after using it for a full year, how mistaken was I? The offer was brilliant, £18 a month, free land-line calls and 3 months of NOW TV for free. (used it to watch all GAME OF THRONES). It was a slow burn however as everything was sluggish, like a car losing power and needing a boost everytime to start. The speed is very very slow. Netflix, Internet browsing and general usage was terribly slow. Always freezing and could never get any help. I have now switched providers but I won't tell you who as I do not want to seem biased. Just saying they are fibre optic and it is really fast. Now the same deal is £33 a month!!!! LOL. Just to give you an idea of download speed, I tried downloading an update on PS4 which was 24gb,estimated time 24 hours. With my new fibre broadband, took 1 HR 20 mins.

    I had a really rocky start with NowTV with my start date being delayed by two weeks and BT Openreach being blamed.

    As the customer service is good (calls are answered quickly by a human) when complaining about the signal from router, I accepted the advice that the signal will take 10 days to regularise to get to its proper speeds - 10 days have passed I still have problem on WiFi from router, now I do not have a connection upstairs as it is "out of range" before it just dropped out constantly!

    Although the plugged in devices downstairs work well (reason I gave 3 stars) the WiFi signal is very poor in rooms away from the hub and out of range upstairs. I have tried all of the recommendations; hub is not by TV / metal however it cannot be put in the middle of the house as it needs to be plugged into the BT phone socket.

    NowTV Fibre Combo is not a service I can keep - I do not want to buy router extenders just to see if I can get the service I had with previous provider.

    I do regret joining NowTV for fibre combo, the entertainment pass is good but can be used with a better internet provider.

    I will be changing providers, even if it means being without internet for a week or so AGAIN, as I need internet upstairs for streaming music and for my FireTV Stick.

    If you are in a bedsit or only use Ethernet connection it would be good for you, otherwise avoid!

    I have been with Now Broadband for several months now. Having moved my service from Vodafone. What caught my eye was the price, plus I already had Now TV and had no issues at all.

    Sign up and install was easy. The transfer of service was quick and smooth. However having said that, there was a broadband fault the day that I was due to transfer service. Luckily I had topped up my data sim to unlimited and was still able to use the net via Wifi Hot Spot.

    Since then I have had no problems with the company themselves. But since changing from Vodafone to Now Broadband I have been receiving countless "cold calls" I have no idea how this has happened? As my number is ex - directory.

    But recently I have noticed that things are stuttering such as YouTube, Facebook and Google Search. The connection drops out all the time for seconds at a time but it's continuously doing it. I have checked the speeds and I'm getting 18.2mg to 1.5mg so there shouldn't be any issues but there are.

    On the whole, I am happy with the service just not with the dropouts. I've only contacted Customer Service twice. And they were helpful and friendly, the wait time was I think about 10 to 15 mins.

    Broadband cuts out regularly. You can only contact them through live chat which is not easy to find. Ironically their staff seem to have great difficulty reading & answering questions. When you ask them to actually answer the question(s), they will just end the chat without warning. I very much regret signing up with them.

    Absolutely terrible! We moved from Sky, thinking that it would be the same service but a lot cheaper (sister company). How wrong we were. The speeds are usually below 15mbps and it regularly just stops. We had a visit from an Open Reach engineer who said that we'd never get higher than 44mbps which is lower than the guarantee but we decided that we'd cope with that so we accepted a new hub. The new one is worse! I was told that if the new hub didn't resolve the issue I could leave without penalty. When I rang to leave I was told that I was lying when I said that I was told that I could leave without penalty and they would have to listen to the phone call. They still haven't got back to me after a week. Meanwhile, we're all using our phone data and have to get used to streamed TV stopping and starting. Customer service staff are very polite and friendly but they don't actually do anything. I'm not holding my breath for any of this to be sorted out soon as it's already been going on for a month. Whatever you do, don't use Now TV for broadband!

    !!!AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!

    Customer services departments are shocking.

    I’ve been with Now Broadband since February 2019. At the beginning of November I received an email saying my line was being swapped so their service would be discontinued. I rang to find out why as I wasn’t swapping my line and was told that it was likely a neighbour who had put the wrong address in, so they had sorted this and my broadband would go on uninterrupted. At this point, had no issues. Spoke to my neighbours for a few houses down and all confirmed they were not changing providers so was a bit confused, but these things happen so no anger yet.

    10 days later, I receive another email saying my broadband will be taken over by another company and they were trying to convince me to stay. Well as far as I was concerned this wasn’t happening, so I rang them back to find out what was going on. Again I was told that there were no issues and that my internet would go uninterrupted.

    On the 15th, my broadband was cut. I rang back and escalated this to the CS management who apologised and said this would be sorted. I was offered two months free broadband (around £54) and that the broadband would be activated as soon as possible. Turned out the earliest they would be able to reactivate this would be the 29th November, which wasn’t ideal seeing as I work using the internet and have had to take unpaid leave and what they were offering didn’t even match a days wage, but I’ve had to manage and wait.

    So yesterday, I received an email saying that this was all being cancelled. I rang twice and the customer service advisors put the phone down on me both times. I rang a third time with the intention to speak to a manager about this and was met by an advisor who was incredibly rude and refused to escalate my complaint. As a result, I cancelled the broadband and asked for a refund - it’ll be interesting to see if this refund comes through.

    Overall very poor service from a worldwide company. In terms of the broadband quality when it was working, it was mediocre at best. The connection would drop regularly and was very slow on all devices. My recommendation to anyone thinking of using Now Broadband is to look elsewhere.

    Now tv have consistently failed to collect direct debit payments. After 6 months of this I eventually changed bank accounts. Today they have collected their payment. For the last few months the Internet stops working for upto an hour around midnight. Ive been fobbed off with 'System updates' 'denial' 'manager to call you back and 'You could always go elsewhere'. Its frustrating, the website is as friendly as a hangry guard dog, the line check useless! It needs working internet to test line issues, so if there's no Internet connection, it cant test anything! getting in touch with them takes the tenacity of a bounty hunter & the realisation that you need more magic than Disney to get a phone number out of that website & instead have to Google 'Speak to human NowTv'. Once you get through, the staff are good its the crazy Nowtv frame in which they work that is the issue. Nowtv don't do good will,apology or rectify mistakes permanently. The same issues happen each month. Tonight Internet went off at 23.54. It finally came back on at 00.44. Tomo I will battle to contact them again, they will in turn show me these actions are the definition of insanity. Time to change companies.. Id recommend teasing that hangry guard dog with a big steak a better idea than choosing them as your Internet provider, dont do it!!

    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.

    all fine till the go live date. internet was working but phone line wasnt. phoned customer service. spend 30 mins on hold. someone with a very strong scottish accent answered. he didnt understand me so instead of passing me to someone who does. he just hung up so had to sit on hold for another 30 minutes. they tested the line and said it was working fine. yet it wasnt working at all. they couldnt arrange an engineer because their systems were down. also when signed up was to a deal where i get sky cinema for £7.99 instead of £11.99 per month. i did not receive this offer at all. nobody at customer service could seem to tell me how to apply this. awful experience with them. stay well away

    Awful company! Broadband ok, but they changed our phone number after telling them we wanted to keep our old number of 20yrs. They did not tell us at any point they had done so. Only discovered when Hospital kept trying to contact us, finally reaching us via email. Said nothing they could do to get our old number. Cancelled after going back to our old supplier who gave us a better deal with our old number reinstated. NEVER will recommend NOW broadband and phone at all.

    Ordered Nowtv broadband to replace Sky. Was not told it cannot replace Sky because Sky provide a 4 ethernet connection hub but Nowtv only provide a 2 ethernet connection hub. So broadband being cut off today, I have to choose to lose 2 devices, Digital TV, Nowtv, Sky or Computer. I really could have used a little information/warning before ordering, that their hub was a really basic model and not compatible with the service they are replacing

    Really bad experience with the customer service. I had a no contract option with them, I explicitly said I wanted to keep the account open due to the no contract option but I'm vacating the property and don't have a move in date for the new property. They mismanaged my account for 9 weeks, keeping the line active despite the property having been let and the new tenants using the line. I've had broken promises to fix the issues, refunds promised that never happened, promises for supervisors to contact me that never happened and customer service staff hang up on me. Appalling service

    I changed provider because of the terrible customer service from my previous provider. NOW broadband are definitely better customer service wise but when streaming TV or music the broadband constantly drops out for seconds only but causes buffering, which was not a problem with previous supplier

    Appalling customer service. We've had several issues with NowBroadband over the past year. The reach of the signal is absolutely terrible, we've had to rearrange the entire living room to allow the Wi-fi signal to reach the consoles despite only being four meters away originally. The box continuously turned off and required a reboot. The company has no telephone number stated anywhere on their page. We spent several hours searching up ways to contact them, every number stated on Google was a blank or warned of a £6 charge. Eventually we found a customer only number, concealed at the bottom of the broadband terms and conditions page. However, this number took several attempts to connect to, as the first few tries we were only connected to an echo of ourselves. The live chat is also absolutely useless. A small quantity of their staff are illiterate and impossible to communicate with. Others are entirely incompetent and no help whatsoever. On several occasions I encountered a chat which provided me with no response other than the chat starter of "Hello I'm... to start with can I please take your full name and email address please." followed by no further replies for over ten minutes. Not to mention the account login itself was down for over three days at one point in September, preventing me from accessing my payment details to check the end date of my 12month contract (since they don't contact you to inform you of this). Furthermore, if you try to change your email through your account (which the website states is what you should do), even if you are with nowBroadband only (no connection to nowTV) your email is in fact only changed for nowTV rather than the broadband services. Only reason I am not leaving a 1 star review is because every so often I happened to stumble upon a member of staff who was not only extremely helpful but also went out of their way to help sort out issues which were not caused by themselves but rather by other members of their team.

    They have left me without home security as the NOW router is not suitable (too weak) to run system and I should never have been told if would not affect my security system at the time of sale despite me going into detail at the time with the salesman at NOW. The cost to sort this is in the many hundreds. Money I do not have. They have taken no responsibility at all. I’m a single female with a panic button due to previous threats hence the security. I have been fobbed off constantly. The speed is very irregular despite having the most expensive super fast broadband package. I can’t even get NOW TV . Customer service don’t have power to sort. I am vulnerable in my own home, paying through the nose for irregular broadband. and now I am going to have to pay for a specialist to try and sort my security system. Totally appalled with the company. Letter sent to Head Office. No response.

    I originally signed up with NOW Broadband as they offered the best value deals, but as I've discovered that comes at a cost. I have no issue with the broadband speeds, but I've had several issues with service drop outs. After line tests they have insisted on having an Engineer access my property at great inconvenience even though the faults have all been at the exchange.
    A few weeks ago I received an email telling me another supplier had requested to take over my line. I immediately phoned them and told them this was a mistake and not the case. I was advised they would put a stop on the line transfer and I'd receive an email confirming when this had been done. No email was received, so I called them back again. I was given no explanation as to why the stop hadn't been actioned, but they would deal with it straight away and I was assured my phone line would not be cut off. On Friday my phone line and Broadband were cut off! After numerous phone calls (you have to go through the same set of security questions twice every time and they have a habit of cutting you off when they try and transfer you) I've been told my only option is to sign up as a new customer again - which will take 14 days. Also, my phone number of 26 years has been deleted and I can't have it back! They have accepted they should have actioned the 'stop' on the line transfer but just didn't bother, so tough luck it's too late now!!!!!
    I now have no phone and Broadband for at least 2 weeks during our 2nd lockdown in Aberdeen.
    Don't be tempted by the cheap deals, they're hopeless!
