    Honestly hands down the worst company We’ve been with at least the other companies told the truth when they messed up, plusnet will saying it’s your router or wires or location when in fact they’re the issue, had a new router fitted a day ago after our Wi-Fi was down for 2 days, cause that’s the “issue” after an engineer with plusnet reviewed it, next night down once again, god awful.

    Please avoid at all costs. Terrible and inconsistent broadband, and customer service that never helped or cared. I've counted down the days on the 18 month contract and I'm so happy I'm now able to change provider.

    They even messed up my installation and left me without broadband for a week. But customer services sent me a 50p bill credit, and did nothing else.

    Very very very bad.

    The worst broadband provider - avoid at all costs .

    Internet keeps going down - plusnet tried to change frequency, sent a new router (just as useless) and still the service keeps dropping .

    Working from home both days and nights - and service drops overnight , yet no support to get this back up as they close at 10pm.

    Have called several times , yet because it’s not dropping often enough (they say) I would need to pay £180 to leave .

    Avoid avoid avoid !!!

    Impossible that Plusnet is one of the Which winners. They must pay them.
    Broadband speed is terrible, we just moved to them and now, we can't call by WhatsApp, Netflix films freezes, customer service is terrible, they make you wait on the phone for over 30 minutes waiting for you to give up and put phone down as they now you already call them for support. My broadband speed should been minimum 40gb and we only getting 13gb. They are terrible.

    The only reason we've connected to this ISP was because we had no other alternatives. The service is bad - speed was fluctuating, the line was unstable and during the first 2 months wasn't even hitting 40MB/s while paying for 60. The technical support is even worse though - they had to send their engineers (3 different ones mind you) during 2 months of troubleshooting. Just don't bother.

    Living in a rural location I accept a slow connection speed and I only have a choice of BT or Plusnet (BT owned) as providers but the difference between BT and Plusnet is customer service and reliability, absolutely none on both with Plusnet, avoid them, they are deliberately poor, there is no need for the poor quality router, the awkward replacement to a better router, the terrible automated support Bot (useless) and the total lack of a person to speak to. I contacted the telephone support line after 2 days of no connection to broadband and the answerphone told me to call back another day as they're busy at the moment and then cut me off. I'm stuck with the lack of choices but that day is coming with rural broadband being available to me in the near future, goodbye BT and Plusnet, you will not be missed.

    Broadband seems reliable and speed is good.

    Try getting through to customder service however; it is impossible. Huge waiting time on the phone until you get fed up and hang up. That alone is enough to want to leave them.

    I signed up to a Plusnet broadband deal for 18 months. It was installed by a openreach engineer who made a terrible mess of things. Mainly to my next door neighbours outside telecoms cable box. They didn’t have WiFi for a week after the engineer cut through cables in the box and also one cable in the exchange box at the other side of the street.
    My WiFi worked fine for three and a half days then stopped. I phoned Plusnet and they said it could take another two days for someone to look at what has gone wrong. After a few hours of wondering why I was paying for a service that was not providing a service I called Plusnet again and cancelled my contract.
    I expected a much better stable broadband connection.
