    Broadband was reliable and speed as advertised. Wifi signal was good enough for me in a flat, can't speak for further away though.
    Found their customer service excellent, especially the live chat. Always got what I wanted done with it within ~10 mins.
    Especially impressed with how easy and quick it was to cancel.

    Broadband is reliable and hasn't yet let me down. Speed is OK and get what you pay for. Only problem is the range and I have had to fit a range extender to get to rooms outside the room the Broadband hub is situated.

No router ... phoned now tv who confirm a problem and order did not go through but they would order again for me while on phone - great all gone through. then looked at my bank statement and payment has been returned - once again on phone - oh so sorry again promised to look into and call me back well no surprise i am still waiting for the call.

    Switched from Talk Talk to Now TV in October 2019. The Now TV broadband reguarly matches the advertised speed so that's not a problem, but almost every day at different times there are moments when you open an app and it won't connect. You try to open a web site, and it won't connect - even though it says connected to the internet. This is across multiple devices, TV, IOS iPhone, Android tablet. Looking on line others say it's the Now TV router that's the problem. I think they're right as my previous Talk Talk account's speed was half the advertised rate of Now TV's, yet I never had any problems connecting to or with anything. It's specifically bad with apps/sites that use heavy data such as YouTube, Plane Finder, Google Earth, Netflix, and sometimes even a simple site like Ebay! About 50% of the time with those apps/sites you just sit watching them trying to load - it's so frustrating. Been to Now TV web site to troubleshoot - also frustrating. It recommends all the obvious stuff that I've already done, (thanks)! So I try to contact them and there doesn't seem to be a way that works. There's a Chat Live button, but it doesn't work. As soon as my contract runs out (only 8 months to go) I'll be off to another provider. Not impressed.

    We requested to change from Plusnet £38 per month for 5mbs to Now TV. NowTV cancelled our broadband connection with Plusnet and have failed to provide us with their broadband service. We’ve had no internet for a week with no explanation. We keep receiving emails from them saying 2 days to go / 3 days etc & nothing happens. Still no internet & no explanation. Should have paid attention to earlier reviews!

    Absolutely the worst fibre Broadband I’ve ever had, in the time I’ve been with them I’ve had 2 new rooters and 3 now tv boxes due to failures! With the broadband the only thing they love to repeat is “ we can’t control hiw reliable your network is when your wireless” then why have I never had this problem with any other services before then??? They then go on to say well how many devices are connected at once at Max only ever 3 mobiles and still it cuts out! I’ve even put in a WiFi repeater and even with that it looses the now broadband! Honestly please listen to this warning ⚠️ Do not go with NoW tv broadband!!!

    Just renewed with NOW Broadband. Price increased after initial 12 month contract. Before switching asked for better deal. Offered one less than my orig deal for same service.

    Customer service was superb. Little bit of a wait after initial security check but it was sat afternoon. Pleasant, knowledgable... just superb. Top class.

    If you are interested to order Now broadband I wanted you 4ead this feedback please first before further action.
    One star is too much for them. 5he worst and awful customer service ever. We didn't receive our hob we should contact them 6 times they didn't even contact us to say our engineer appointment was cancelled. After about a month now that we are calling them I spoke to their manager (if you can call it manager because I doubt if that is a company) she said we can't update you and you should wait for another company to update us then we will update you.


    I can't believe what I heard after a month and me and my husband both working from home and she said your company that you are working for should support you and give you the tools that you need it is not our problem. I will definitely cancel my order but please don't go through whole this situation that we went.

    ABSOLUTELY DO NOT TOUCH THIS COMPANY WITH A BARGE POLE. Absolutely disgusting service. Had someone come out to install, they couldn't install, apparently lied to their company and nowTV wouldn't believe me that he couldn't install due to problems with the building and made me book a second day off to have another person come and install, just for them to tell me the same thing. 2 and a half months later I am STILL having to chase them for their apparent 'automatic compensation' for any delay. I have been told the wrong date 3 times now and I am at my wits end chasing these guys. Absolutely appalling. Not worth the hassle one bit. Will rip you off and take your money.

    After nearly 2 years. We are in the process of changing to another supplier. All I will say is if you are thinking of Broadband look else where. After 2 years we are giving uo with them. They have little or no interest in providing a reasonable service.

    Absolutely rubbish broadband tonight I have no internet I work from home. The past two months have been dire. When I rang for advice I was told 6 devices were too many. Two laptops two phonesNOT IN USE no apps open a smart tv on standby and a work mobile not using any internet. Really!? Want to charge me to leave and. The day they confirm my new provider has been in touch and confirming the change will take place in 3 weeks and they will charge me my internet starts playing up. The day after and the orange light meaning no internet has been on for over an hour. But they still want money. The clown on the phone told me that I couldn’t raise a complaint or a dissatisfaction with her as “we don’t have a complaints procedure’. Upload speed was so low my IT department at work laughed and said they were pretty sure now tv had no right charging for such poor service. And this was while word to the router. Can’t wait to get a decent connection. With someone else.

    Avoid like the plague. I didn't get beyond my first phone call. The guy I spoke with was useless. Didn't want to engage with me at all. He chose not to answer one question I asked. All he'd say was "Go to the website", "I'm not an engineer", "I'm not a salesman".
    Basically, take it or leave it. That was his attitude. "I don't give a toss" was how he came across to me.
    If he reflects his company's attitude, well, I don't give a toss either.
    They'll never get my business and if you've any sense, don't risk giving them yours.

    Would give a zero if i could, signed up once and booked an engineer but when I called up to check this, they said my account had not been created. The person on the phone set us up for an engineer to come out in 2 weeks time, only for our order to be cancelled without giving any explanation. When I called up they said we had no capacity for broadband with them, which they didn’t mention any of the other times they were taking my card details.

    Absolute shambles. Had a member of the customer service team put the phone down on me mid call twice

    AVOID

    Absolutely dire, i'm not downloading, just browsing..... my hub keeps dropping and rebooting, i tried help desk chat but guess what.... couldn't get chat going properly as every 3 mins my hub failed, finally managed to find a help line number. Nice chap at the other end says my hub dropped 17 times in first 90 minutes. Said it was only sent out at 17 and I was pulling 24mbs, reset it by dialling in... not been any better so tomorrow morning i'm telling them to poke it....

    Going from Virgin was a risk but it am on brilliant broadband after a few teething problems caused by old line connections getting great typical speed and streaming now tv , can use I pad for movies etc good home reception and saving money . I have wasted a lot of cash on fast fibre I didn’t need. So goodbye Virgin. I highly recommend now broadband I guess others have been unlucky . Don’t hesitate to join or switch .

    Was recommending NOW to friends but they said lots of bad reviews here, so here I am, writing a positive one. Had FAB (VDSL) for 18 months, at 12th month cost jumped, called them up and they renewed at a more reasonable price + a voucher. Always good bandwidth, has been reliable for my work VPN and NOW TV & PRIME don't lag or jitters. Not the cheapest VDSL price plan but I've had cheaper ones before (beginning with an "O"), happy to pay a tiny bit more for reliable service. My area is in IG6 and I have been a happy customer.

    Absolutely shocking. Don't waste your time or money. After over two months of trying to get Now Broadband set up I have given up. In total I was given 9 different instalation dates, the only one of these which wasn't cancelled, moved or just didn't get booked correctly I sat at home all day and the engineer didn't turn up. They seemed absolutely incapable of booking an appointment for me, I would be told I had a date then 2 days later they would ring me and ask for three dates, invariably about a week after my original date, then they would say the first one hadn't gone through. After hearing 'I can only apologise' for the 100th time I realised that was literally all they could do and gave up.

    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!

    Hi there,

    I signed up for the Now TV broadband package to go activate on Monday 30th March. Unfortunately it didnt go active. So I called to see as to why.

    Tuesday 31st I was informed by a gentleman that my account querey will be pushed into 'teir 2' and I would be informed on Thursday 2nd April personally by himself.
    I then called again on Tuesday to gain more information about what teir 2 actually is and also in the hope we may have received an update already. Unfortunately no update but a helpful amount of information.
    I waited patiently till Thursday 2nd April as discussed. I received no phone call so called up myself and spoke to someone else who informed me that he will personally contact me on Sunday 5th to provide me an update.
    Again, I waited patiently until Sunday. After receiving no form of contact by 4pm, I once again called myself. I spoke to a woman who informed me that we're unlikely to hear anything today due to a lot of openreach' branches being closed on Sunday, not to worry thats understandable. I was then infromed it will most likely be Monday 6th April and if theres any update then the relevent team will inform me.
    Monday 6th I called again. I called with limited hope, expecting to hear the same old "im sorry" however upon speaking to the gentleman I was informed that they're looking to activate my wifi on 15th April. It also seemed like the gentleman was unsure as to why I havent been told about the date already, almost as if to say, the lady on Sunday could've informed me of that date.
    I left the phone call thinking 'Great!' Not becuase I've been given a date but because someone has finally given me some information.
    To be honest, I was not best pleased with the date given. I've paitently waited for a week to be told you've got to sit staring at a wall for another 10 days. As I said to the gentleman, this is a bit of a piss take from my perspective. I was recommended to Now TV from a friend who complimented the set-up speed, communication skills and wifi speed. All have been way below par!
    Wednesday 15th rolled around, I called first thing to confirm its going live. I was informed that the teir 2 team still have intentions of going live today. As they close at 8pm I decided to call at 7:30 pm and I spoke to another gentleman. The gentleman was amazing! He was honest and considerate of the situation. He apologized on behalf of the complaints team and the teir 2 team. Even though he had nothing to do with either team he was full of useful information. He advised its unlikey to go live on 15th and to sign up for virgin media, then depending on which company can make my wifi go live first to then cancel the other. So I did. He informed me for the first time that all openreach comms lines have been closed since 20th. Why was i not told all this on 31st? I dont know.

    From my perspective, the wifi not going active is not specifically anyone's fault. I understand that given the times that we're in, everyone is understaffed and you have to prioritize others. However... this is completely unacceptable, no comms from Now TV, all from me. Over 300 minutes of my time chasing for information.
    Between 30th and 6th I have used all the data on my 4G plan, as had my flat mate. My flat mate was meant to be working from home since Tuesday 31st. As he has been unable to, he has been forced to take some holidays and some unpaid leave. After telling Now TV about that, they decided to do sweet nothing about it. Following all this i dont believe that teir 2 is actually a team but uf they are, they need to pick up the phone and be clear with the customer to stop them getting irate.

    I'd like to say, all the staff i have spoken to have been extremely polite and friendly. And after each phone call I clarified that I was not having a go at the individual I was just venting at them. The last gentleman I spoke last actually thanked me for being polite to the staff even though i was angry.

    Many Thanks
    Harry Moss

    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.

    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.

    Installed 3 months ago, moved from Virgin, what a nightmare, got super fibre thinking it would be good, it drops off on a daily basis it, the speed is slow, Netflix buffers on SD, the hub is 10m away front the TV with no walls, I complained and they said they would send a specialist engineer out from Openreach, he advised that everything was OK(equipment and connection) but the WiFi was just poor, I called NOWTV and they said they don't guarantee a wireless service only a wired service and it would cost me £70 to cancel, joke, AVIOD LIKE THE PLAGUE!! Back to Virgin for me

    Literally awful.

    My order was cancelled twice and I was simply sent texts on both occasions that I had to ring customer service. Expect to wait nearly an hour to speak to someone. Once you do they push back the date for another two weeks and can't even give you a reason as to why. Honestly the worst company let alone internet provider I have had the experience of dealing with.

    Perhaps the silver lining is that they showed how terrible they were before I was locked in for twelve months, but I would do everything to avoid this company.

    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.

    This was quite frankly the worst customer service I have ever experienced.

    I signed up in August. It is now October and I still haven't everything sorted. After 2 engineer visits and countless phonecalls my account was cancelled without consultation.

    Avoid at all costs.

    Super slow broadband, when there is any internet connection at all. WiFi only works if you sit within 30cm of the hub! Absolute rubbish, will change provider asap. Other people in the area with different providers seem to have no problem, which tells me all I need to know.

    Really wish I had read the reviews before signing up to this. The broadband is almost unusable, it drops out every couple of minutes. To use the WiFi I have to sit next to the router, might as well have a wired connection. Customer service were excellent when I was ordering the service, but when trying to complain they were less so, they didn’t even answer the phone.

    Avoid at all cost. Semaphore would be quicker and more reliable. Internet connection is intermittent and WiFi only works if you sit within 30cms of the hub. I will ditch this provider as soon as my contract ends.

    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...

    I always go for the best package available in my area and unfortunatley, my outdated street only had now as the best option. I was mis-sold their broadband package and when the engineer turns up to install my broadband he says it cannot be activated until another openreach engineer comes to service my street cabinet. No date given, complete ambiguity, I decided to cancel a few days later and go with someone else as I knew that this issue could go on indefinitely. Skip the hassle and just pay extra for a smaller, independent firm (if you can afford it). It saves you so much time and hassle in the long run.

    Ultimately I've had to wait anorhy two weeks until the new company could install my broadband and I've been without internet for a month in total because of Now's incredibly poor service

    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.
