    One problem with using the internet for so much is that it needs to have enough bandwidth for several things at once! So we decided it was time to upgrade the internet. We went onto a popular Meerkat-fronted comparison site and settled on NowTV Broadband. They set a date of 21st May for a switch over.

    We realised that, in for a penny in for a pound, it would make sense to upgrade to their super fast broadband. So we called on 15th May, a week after signing up, to ask if we could upgrade to an even faster package. We were told to ring back after the connection went live, to make the change.

    The day of the connection change came and went with no switchover. The following morning we called again, to see what was happening. We were informed that it was being dealt with, that the change would happen in the next few hours. We were assured that our current connection wouldn’t be switched until after the new connection was ready.

    A few hours later the internet and telephone lines cut out. We installed the new NowTV box and nothing happened.

    We called back and were told that there was a problem. We were given no details on when it would be resolved, or what the actual issue was. We were told a manager would call us back at some point. The customer service agent couldn’t say when, simply gave a date 3 days later by which she ‘hoped’ a manager would be able to call us. They said the problem was showing as flagged on their system as being explained to us on 15th May. When asked if they could review the recordings of that call, they said they would not and refused to give them to us but admitted they existed.

    We then called our previous provider and asked if there were any problems with them or with Openreach (the vague reasons for the problem we were given). An engineer assured us that there was and should be no problem.

    No other contact from NowTV was received. No internet connection came online.

    This morning we have called twice and both times have been given different information, which doesn’t match. We have been told that we will be called back multiple times, no calls have been forthcoming. They have refused to confirm these issues. When asked for information on how to check the fault with Openreach we were told to google the number and when it was explained that not having internet made this more difficult and asked for the number we were told that due to GDPR we could not be given a number, despite it being in the public domain.

    We asked to make a formal complaint. We were told to go online.

    Times are tough and they are obviously working under strain. Technical difficulties happen. The tone and support from NowTV has made it impossible to feel reassured that I will be able to work effectively. They indicate it could be up to 10 days before the fault is corrected. This is despite the two week period between signing up and the connection coming online. It has also been over a week since they claim (erroneously) we were informed.

    Looking on NowTV’s own forums reveals that this exact issue has happened countless times before. Each time they have blamed other companies but been ultimately responsible. On occasions it has taken them more than 16 days to resolve the issue.

    In the meantime, we are stuck with no broadband, no telephone line, and no clue when we will be able to even know when work can resume.

    They have now said that they would escalate the problem to 'Tier 2' and call us within 72 hours. It has been over 100 hours since then. Still not a single call or email. No apology.

    I’m not on the frontline but I value my work and I want to look after my clients. In these times isn’t fulfilling internet contracts, or at least being prompt and active in resolving issues, a basic moral duty?

    Stay clear of now broadband. They take money you shouldnt be paying. They wont help over the phone. They pass you from pillar to post. Your activation date says a specific date but it can be two weeks after that date before it becomes active.

    Only had Internet service for 3 days and decided it was rubbish.

    They suggested I manually change channels on my router when Internet was slow.

    Basically the technician admitted their routers are rubbish.

    Signed up with Now broadband this morning and requested to keep my landline number. I then received an email from them stating that they had chosen to change my number! GRRRRRRR!

    Tried to reply to email and also respond via various online contact forms and complaint forms, but no response.

    I have decided to cancel contract and will look for better contract with existing supplier, on hold to Now cancellations team as I type.

    NOW IS BAD IN ALL AREAS OF PERFORMANCE!
    Bought a netgear booster as I could only get wifi sat on the now box. The booster is better in ever room even in the main room with the NOW wifi box even though the booster is upstairs. Waist of time phoning CARE team.

    Totally and utterly annoying service!
    Been using this broadband service for a few months now.
    Every single day without fail, the middle light of 3 goes from green to orange, meaning whatever I'm doing or using stops!!

    I've sent them lots of messages because you can't ring them, they say,do this, do that blah, blah, blah, just like Talk Talk, totally crap.

    They just blame the user instead of sending someone to check on it!

    I had the same kind of crap with TT and got nothing but excuses from them also.

    If I was you, avoid these also, I will be switching as soon as my contract is ending.

    Called me the day before install to say "it cancelled- we can't explain why would you like us to resubmit or leave it cancelled"

    Nothing before then- no texts or anything to say there was an issue. Still waiting on a refund.

    avoid them, I was scammed by over £200, very poor customer service and their telephony staff yelled at me at two ocassions. I booked a broadband installation with NowTV, waited for a month, engineers came over and said that there is no line they can use so they can't connect and advised to get different provider i.e virgin, as there was virgin line. They assured me that I don't need to do anything and they will let billings team now and my account will be cancelled and installation fee refunded. They never cancelled my account and kept charging my card every month without any authorisation, I've cancelled direct debit straight away and they still kept charging my card, becauise they had card details. I've called to log a complaint, telephony guy said that their company has no complaints department whatsoever so it's impossible. I asked him why their website has whole complaints page and ability to log a written complaint? They said i'm making this up as they don't deal with complaints at all.. Assured me that broadband is cancelled. TWo months later I am still being charged.. No standing orders or direct debit, they are making unauthorised charges to my card directly because they have the details.. I have logged a complaint on their website, it promised 3 weeks response-resolution. 2 months later, no response. I called their telephony to cancel again, just to get yelled at by a girl, saying that i should stop making up the complaint story, as they dont have complaints team and there is nowhere to log a complaint, and that my services are fully active lol

    Worst company ever, avoid! Seems like if you get any issues they will never resolve them.

    I'm confused by all of the negative reviews on here. I am with Now TV Broadband and can only give them top marks. I was with BT and when I moved home they tried to trick me into a new contract. By trick me, I mean this was not mentioned throughout the moving requisition process, BT in very small print in the confirmation email! So I left them. Prior to that I had been with Talk Talk which was a total disaster! My download speed was supposed to be 36 - 40 mbs but was never above 30 mbs, and went down to 2.5 mbs but they weren't at all interested in sorting out the problem. Both BT & Talk Talk contracts were for 18 months. My Now TV contract is for 12 months, a length I can accept as if I am not satisfied at the end of it, I can go elsewhere. By the way neither previous gave free anytime calls to both landline and mobile numbers, only weekend calls to landlines only. And were both more than what I am paying now!

    This is the worst company I have ever had the misfortune to associate with. I tried and failed for 6 weeks to get broadband with these people. My neighbours managed to get broadband with them though, unfortunately it was my broadband as they disconnected them and made their phone and WiFi drop out for a month. They failed to call me back regularly and their customer service was truly awful. Please don’t ever consider working with Now TV Broadband. They’re a subsidiary of Sky so they should be ok. They had one job and they simply couldn’t do it. Absolutely useless.

    I've read similar reviews here.. Unfortunately too late. Two weeks have past since the engineer came to my house to install the broadband. He couldn't finish the work and I had no update that day. I called NowTV to find out what went wrong and they didn't know. They promised to call me the day after to give me an update but they didn't. I tried to chat with them online and finally they could spot one of the problems. The woman I spoke to promised to keep me updated. 3 days later I happen to speak to the same woman in the chat so I asked about that update she reassured me I would get. She said she sent it and it finally turns out that she sent it to the wrong email address. Her response "my bad".

    I still don't have internet.
    I thought that they had a good deal but considering the hassle and energy I've wasted, I would never choose NowTV and would definitely not recommend it to anyone.

    Excellent broadband service. Price is very competitive. The offer without minimum contract saved our life. I usually don't post reviews but NowTV Broadband was a very good reliable service.

    It's a total disgrace, do not use this. It's always off for several days at a time and when it's on it's speed is way below promised. They refuse to terminate without fees. Even if you can prove your speeds. They say things like 'try connecting fewer devices" Working from home is impossible.

    Appalling service. I was switching from Sky to Now (same group of companies - so should be a simple accounting/billing change). Many weeks of delays, finally gave up. I now am chasing them to get money back which is proving impossible.
    NEVER AGAIN !!!!!!!!

    Overall satisfaction is down one star due to my telephone number not being ported,i am not that worried as i only have calls telling me "i was involved in a accident".Been three weeks with Now and to be fair everything they said has been done,apart from the number porting.Good consistent speeds and no drop outs,router sent out when they said,engineer arrived when they said and 2.5 meg off my max speed so very happy with the service so far,i hope this continues.

    I dont know where to start first they couldnt install my broadband on time. I lost a 2 weeks of internet from start of my contract and wasnt compensated for the loss.

    I couldnt understand why no access to social media, PSN and Microsoft Live.

    THEY HAD RESTRICTED ACCESS IN OTHER WORDS SET PARENTAL CONTROLS TO CHILD MODE BY DEFAULT.

    This is why I couldnt access certain sites they dont tell you this before signing up.

    You would think you would have access to parental control but nope. What they call Broadband Buddy doesnt exist atleast if you try to navigate to it through your NOW broadband account.

    I had to go over to the so called community whereby support is provided by their own customers??!!?

    You couldnt make this crap up..in any case someone from the community provided a Broadband Buddy link.

    Here its is for anyone looking for it:

    help.nowtv.com/article/set-up-and-manage-broadband-buddy

    Next problem the link didnt work no matter which web browser (Firefox, Chrome or Edge) or which PC or laptop I used I got the same annoying message time after after.

    'Well that didnt go to the plan..please try again later.'

    So next step is to give them a call..right ?..except.

    THEY INTENTIONALLY HIDE THERE CUSTOMER SUPPORT NUMBER...No joke!

    Eventually after going through many web pages I managed to find there customer support number.

    Here it is for anyone who is looking for it :

    0800 759 1213

    How do I know that they intentionally hide it . Well I posted on their own NOW broadband community in order to help others in the same boat.

    The very next day the post was removed !! and I was banned from making any further posts or comments on their community forum.

    Now onto the actual phone call once i got through to the support team they were unapologetic and tried to blane me even I told them Ive tried multiple devices and web browsers.

    There own community suggests they have Broadband Buddy issues since 2019 yet they still havent sorted it.

    The support person put me hold while they looked into it and came back with theres no restrictions or kid mode set on your account and suggested I try and visit facebook.

    Fortunately it worked and I now have full access to everything..the point is they blatantly lied. Prior to the phone call I was restricted..they only lifted the restriction after the call and made out I was at fault.

    I'm not going to go into the bandwidth problems heres since its been covered by others here but expect to be eractic up and down.

    This is my experience with these jokers so far ..yes its cheaper than everyone else at the moment but you get what you pay for.

    Be warned.

    Had the internet just over a year, was on BT the past 10 or so years. BT internet would usually disconnect around 12-2AM at night likely to perform maintenance, this never happens with NOWTV which is always good when your in a competitive gaming match and dont get disconnected.

    The speed is reliable and decent for what I pay, 25 squid for 36Mb, good for downloading steam games etc. Overall no complaints.

    I saw the negative reviews on this site but decided to go ahead anyway!

    So far, I'm glad I did. The Customer Service team in Belfast answers the phone quickly and is very helpful (a breath of fresh air compared with Virgin Media, my previous supplier).

    Luke, the BT Openreach installer arrived 15 minutes early and got things going, despite it being a horrible cabling job in my building.

    And so far, a week on, I'm getting the 37mb/sec broadband speed advertised, even at peak time, and with no outages. I couldn't be happier and even better, I'm on a 30 day contract so not locked in.

    Of course, it's early days, but I've quite a bit of confidence in Now stepping up if things did go pear-shaped. I think any supplier will have horror stories where things sometimes go wrong, but again, they're so much better than the dreaded Virgin lot when it comes to quality service.

    Ordered online well in advance of moving as I expected to need an engineers visit. The website told me everything was already connected and I didn't need a visit. On my activation day I plugged everything in and was receiving Internet with no issues.

    Two weeks later I was cut off. I called and they explained to me that actually I did need an engineers visit and they had emailed me asking for me to provide some dates. I gave them some dates but an hour after this I got an email to say my service had been cancelled. I called again and they told me I was too late and the order had to be cancelled, but I couldn't reorder until the phone side of the order was cancelled. It took them another week to do this and I was told it would take at least another two weeks from then to get me setup again.

    They blamed the whole thing on Openreach which to be fair I can understand that a big part of the fault lies with Openreach, however as a customer I don't have any dealing with Openreach and I was totally dependent on NOW broadband to notify me of the issue and that I needed to advise them of some dates I would be available to have it corrected. Somehow they felt that a single easily missed email was sufficient for this.

    Dealing with the customer service centre was difficult. After 5 phone calls I requested to speak to a manager because nobody could explain to me what went wrong. I was promised a call back on 4 occasions and never received it. I eventually received a call about 2 weeks after requesting it.

    I was initially somewhat understanding of the issue and I was going to reorder with them as I simply wanted my Internet restored. However my experience was riddled with failures from NOW broadband and the confidence I had in them was lost.

    I requested a full refund and this was paid.

    I have had the worst experience trying to get my broadband installed with Now. First they blamed Openreach then they said my address did not exist all they keep saying is they will look into it 72 hours. Well it's been a week and still no service.

    Just don’t bother even thinking about joining them, used them for 2 years at 2 different locations and never got even close to the “guaranteed” speeds. Customer service doesn’t exist as far as I’m concerned you might as well call a brick wall, least you know what you’re in for. Not had many issues with the internet dropping but when it does...it does, and it doesn’t come back till you’re too pissed of to even wanna use it. Heap of rubbish, stick to playing outside.

    It's Sky Broadband with a no frills option. Support varies wildly from useless to good, depends on who you get and how helpful they are feeling.

    If you don't get anywhere call back the next day and you will probably get someone who will help. Generally service is pretty reliable and speeds are ok.

    No hassles with contracts, moving home or cancelling is ok no hassle, unlike Virgin where it can take weeks or months.

    Basically you get what you pay for, service is pretty much identical to Sky Broadband which is ok for VDSL.

    No idea how this lot make any money. They've installed two lines for us at separate properties, including a brand new copper pair at the second, entirely free of charge. Broadband is reasonably fast and cheap, and on the new copper pair download speed, latency and packet loss are all good. Customer support is UK-based and pretty helpful.

    Was due to have internet activated on 1/6/22, engineer completely skipped the visit and never showed up after me waiting all day. Called Now the next day, to be told they would look into it. Get a new activation date of 1/27/22. Engineer showed up 5 hours ago, I'm still sat here waiting for the elusive third green light to come on. Company is ridiculous. Don't waste your money or your time.

    I have NOW tv's Fab Fibre broadband with a guaranteed minimum speed of 36mbps. Although they tell me repeatedly that the speeds they are getting are between 28 and 36 the fastest I have ever had coming into the house are 20 (and that only ever intermittently). The usual is between 2 and 18. Rubbish.

    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.

    I joined 1st July & am still waiting. I had 9 Open Reach engineers who kept coming to install inside, but there was a connection error so needed a dig outside to make my line Live. Plus 1st engineer signed the job as 'Done' hence my phone stopped and I was charged for 1st month though I not only had Nothing at all but they also lost the phone number I've had 50yrs! The NOW team told me "if you leave & rejoin we can change the Open Reach order" ... They lied! I left but they wouldnt let me rejoin due to 'Not having a live line'"?!! Talk about catch 22...You can't talk to Open Reach direct... You have to go via your provider... But I don't have a provider anymore!! Lack of communication with Open Reach and easiest way of getting rid of problem was by telling me to leave. I have had the fix outside but there is now another fault lower down the street but that won't get fixed cos I don't have a provider. No provider will take me on as "I don't have a Live line" I want to scream now. Both NOW & Open Reach are to blame... Ombudsman here I come!! Newspapers too!!

    Very very poor. 3 days after switchover day and still no landline or broadband. Poor customer service - pleasant staff but long delays getting through and staff unable to do anything (presume business modelled in this way - staff just there as a pretence). Reading reviews not optimistic about getting phone or BB service any way soon. My advice is go somewhere else - do not use Now.

    Overall NOW TVs approach to customer service is we have your money now suffer.
    I should have known better as years ago I had used SKY and after 3 years left them when they displayed the same attitude. NOW TV seemed good idea for our holiday home.. result piss poor after sales service. Once they have you all they want is your money and more money.
    My best advice AVOID

    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!

    Avoid these idiots at all costs. Don't do direct debit so you pay by card and they keep taking extra payments. Contacting customer service is a joke.

    If you're looking at NowTV broadband and you're thinking that it's just Sky with a different badge...think again.

    They have the worst customer service of any company that I've ever dealt with. If nothing at all goes wrong you might be fine, but if you need help with something you're going to suffer huge frustrations.

    For me, the issue was constant issues with my payment details. There is a fault on their system that meant they couldn't seem to keep the details on the account, they kept being wiped off. This resulted in harrassing emails telling me i was overdue payments and having my broadband cut off at one point.

    The crazy thing is, whenever they tried to take payments from my account they were able to with no problems what so ever, but for some reason their system just kept deleting my details.

    It's hard to explain in a short space of text how dissatisfied I have been with them, so I'll just leave it with this: 4 months into my contract I'm paying £125 to leave early. They're just not worth the ongoing frustrations.

    It's terrible. Just switched to Now broadband and it's absolutely awful. Really annoyed. Was with TalkTalk, which was great. Now is the absolute pits. Avoid at all costs.
