    NO RELIABILITY AT ALL. Connection drops +10x times per day. Streaming or watching a youtube video? In your dreams maybe you would be able but not with plusnet.

    In case you would like to report some problem you need to stay on their brilliant support lane for over 30 minutes but nobody is doing anything for you in the end anyway. Just a lost cause. Hands off for your own sake.

    If it were possible to leave 'minus' stars, I would. I've had nothing but problems with PlusNet for weeks and weeks. As long as everything's running, they're ok, but if you have a problem their 'award-winning customer service' is nowhere to be found. They treat their customers abysmally, don't answer questions, and don't care about their customers once they're locked into a contract. The worst company I've ever had to deal with.

    I have been with Plusnet since I cancelled with Talk Talk (Rubish ), great service, Yorkshire based company who usually look after their costumers. My contract is up for renewal, but on looking at the speeds offered my upload speed will go down from 10mg to up to 2mg unless I upgrade which will cost me more.I' looking round now for a better deal, but not many good compliments for other providers !

    Worst broadband supplier I have ever had the displeasure of using. It took over 2 months to install despite repeated promises it would be much sooner and the refund I got for this period was derisory. It takes over 30 mins for customer service/tech support to answer and one of the numbers supplied was a premium rate number, with no warning it was one, which cost me over £14 before I was cut off(online payment was also unavailable during this time). Payment is expected in the middle of the month and can't be changed despite repeated promises that they will be changing soon. I'm also only receiving 70% of the speed I'm paying for.
    If this is how plusnet do you proud then they should be ashamed.

    Ive just left shell BBand after winning a ombudsman case against them for price hiking during a fixed fee for 12 months.
    Ive now been with Plusnet for 2 months and guess what, Yep they just put the price up, so its back to the ombudsman again.
    These 2 bit companies are not worth the hassle, I didnt realize that by joining plusnet there wouldnt be any customer service email address and that broadband drops 3 or 4 times a day...I will go to court before i pay any price hike, fed up of these scam companies..Avoid like the plague

    Been with Plusnet a while now everything pretty average,tried to contact them about moving home took 45 minutes to get through went through all the BS about free house move worth about £150 but price of package went up and told I had to sign up to new 2 year contract.
    Poor show with customer services and they take advantage of your situation to extend the contract.

    Joined Plusnet in February because of spiralling costs with another company. I have never looked back, a little bit of buffering during lock down, but fine now. Would recommend.

    we'll do you proud my arse. they lie and get out of any thing they can. dont accept responsibility when the service goes down. charges are sky high. they never respond to complaints, so i ring and they are rude. broadband speed varies dramaticly day to day which makes my internet streaming useless. dont use plusnet they make you miserable.

    My father passed away on 22nd August. Fortunately I was able to access his emails and found the first of many demands for payment from Plusnet relating to the old closed account in his name. I contacted Plusnet's webchat to advise of the situation on 24th August. It was left that the account was to be closed.
    On the 2nd Sep Plusnet again emailed chasing payment. I again contacted via webchat on 6th Sep and was assured that the account would be closed within 3 days.
    On 15th Sep Plusnet AGAIN emailed chasing payment, claiming that his service was now restricted. It certainly was – he had been dead for 3 weeks!!! I AGAIN contacted webchat and was AGAIN assured that the account would be closed off within 3 days.
    On 17th Sep Plusnet YET AGAIN emailed a demand for payment, but since this was within 3 days I ignored it as I had been advised to do by Plusnet's advisor.

    Today I am at my wits end. I have had my mother on the phone in tears not knowing what to do. Plusnet have sent a letter addressed to my late father to her address, chasing payment and threatening to pass the account to debt collection agents.

    STAY AWAY...nothing plus about plusnet more like `MINUSNET`
    4 weeks now with 95% downtime. When connected i can`t even browse the internet ( email,banking etc.) Over 3 hours,in total, lost on the phone waiting. It`s something else every time you phone them. They don`t know of your previous complaints. They`ve asked me not to turn the router of for ten days so that the network can stabilize itself!? Ten days? They treat you like a fool and delay solving your internet so they can charge you another month! They identified something wrong but they can`t tell me what it is over the phone so they booked an engineer. Engineer never turned up as scheduled. `No internet, we don`t care, will charge you good !`plusnet
    I`m switching TODAY !
    P.S> using my mobile network internet to write this review.

    Singed up for the broadband package (was later told by customer service this is no good and I would not of put you on this package) on the switchover day the line did not go active, phoned tech support spent 1 hour going through trsting of connections in my house which I told them I had already carried out but he wanted me to do again with him on the phone. Then 3 days later engineer attended to diagnose the fault witch was in the exchange that they had connected incorrectly. Then line test showed very poor speeds but was told that the line needed to chase in for 10 days, still no better phoned to cancel and was told that I had 14 days from first signing up with them and that had passed and they were supplying the minimum line speed so could not cancel. The only option left open to me was pay to cancel or upgrade to fiber for 18 months on a new contract and would not give me the new customer rate neather, I am very dissatisfied with the service and customer service. In my opinion I would avoided at all cost.

    I joined plusnet after being unsatisfied with my previous supplier. I filled in their online forms and was given a date for an engineer to come out and connect my BT line.

    Come the day of installation I had heard nothing from plusnet so phoned them to check the engineer was coming. It took ages to get through to customer services and when I did they put me hold for ages. I was told they were sorry but the system did not place a booking for an engineer and I would have to wait a further 10 days. Funnily enough the system worked fine when it came to taking my money though!

    I'd taken the day off work. Was not going to trust these jokers any further so cancelled and went back to my previous supplier.

    If they can't even book an engineer correctly what are they going to be like the rest of the time. AVOID.

    We’ll do you proud. What a joke!! All you’ve done for me is to lose me my landline number which I’ve had for over 30 years. I switched providers approximately mid October. Everything went smoothly. I ordered fibre because my previous provider would sometimes go off due to poor signal. I was assured it was a better speed etc than what I already had. Came activation day Nov 2nd. I switched routers etc and began logging my various pieces of equipment into my new provider. First in was my TV. A message appeared telling me my speed wasn’t good enough and to contact my provider. JOKE!! First call rang for 20 mins then I had to go out 2nd attempt 42mins I let it ring. I then rang and selected the option “l
    I’m leaving “. I was answered immediately. When I was put through to the correct department ( immediately) I explained that nothing was running because speed was too low. The guy looked at my package and told me that they couldn’t improve the speed because of where I lived and so they were cancelling my order and refunding my money and to try elsewhere. He then hung up. I decided to go back to my previous provider but now I’ve no internet and no phone line because they’d cut me off. Because they’d done that my landline number has gone back into the general number pool and my new provider can’t get it back. I’m running the internet through my mobile phone, using it as a temporary router, which is costing me money and I’m waiting for a new landline number and my new activation date to start. Do you proud? Do you an injury more like. I’d never ever recommend you to anyone.

    Been with plusnet, second year internet speeds went down hill and frequent loss of connection despite being next to router and internet. Lost both the landline and wifi today, have tried to call in the morning, couldn't wait longer than the 32 minutes I was on the line. Decided to try again at 6pm, was advised by the wait was 15 minutes as lines are busy. Waited another 35 minutes before giving up. Will be switching to a better provider. I decided to give them a go 2 years ago from good reviews and trust but I give up with them. Don't have enough staff, don't prioritise customers. Not worth paying lower prices for the time they make me waste. Don't have time for broadband and landlines issues. Plusnet maybe a couple of years ago, but now Plusnet you didn't do me proud.

    We have been with plusnet for 18 months and have had no problems at all. Good speed, no drops in connection, great customer service.

    Just moved to a new house and at the same time we reviewed my plan to an even better one with a discount.

    Customer service is always really good and great that they use an 0800 contact number.

    Internet is always on and always works with no messing about - that's all we need and that is what plusnet provides!

    Would definitely recommend.

    Good dishonest broadband from Yorkshire, and the worst customer service I have ever come across. Overcharged from the word go , line rental increase within a couple of months and now hidden cessation charge added . Good riddance to the crooks.

    As others have said, it's reliable but when it breaks get ready for an hour plus wait to get through to the service desk who generally back off to OpenReach. These days, PlusNet are a typical crafty, money grabbing, rip off service provider. Watch out for those in build 4% annual price hikes. BT's influcence I have no doubt and I am taking my custom elsewhere.

    Broadband is terrible, cuts out all the time, customer service is awful, they say they will ring back, they don't, then send you a video to watch!! Makes no difference, They have ME trying everything to make it work, but nothing...over 12 months if terrible product and service which they still charge me for... The BT sub-station is 10 foot from my property and I am in the same room as the router?? And I am outside using my Tesco mobile to connect to this!!

    Dreadful line speed; varies from about 0.28Mb/s to 15Mb/s during the week without any changes on our part. Plusnet are unable or unwilling to sort this out. We are now involving the help of our MP and the Ombudsman. This company was once good, but now are terrible. Thank goodness I'm with Zen for my business.

    Very disapointing, cannot understand why they seem to have reasonable scores for customer service etc. Suppose many other ISPs are even worse. Just spent one hour on phone to technical support and eventually got back on line, mostly by undoing what the previous technical advisors had told us to do, eg "stick a pin in the reset button, if it restarts then wait 3 days to see what is really happening", or else, "just wire it all up with an ethernet cable" [we are paying £39 per month for a wireless service!]. Looking for an alternative ISP but they all seem as bad as each other.

    Do not consider Plusnet. There recent network changes have been a disaster. There are thousands of disgruntled customers ( look at trust pilot 1/10, 1500 reviews!) . the speeds are slow, no chance of streaming TV and customer service diabolical... Look at the stats typically 100 mins to answer calls. A few years ago they were OK...no they are absolute rubbish. AVOID...you have been warned

    Upgraded to hub one. Now BBC iPlayer impossible to use..drops connection every 5 mins. Plusnet customer service is abysmal. At least an hour either by chat or phone..sometimes 2-3. And then all they want to do is charge an engineer ... An upgrade that is useless

    Started well but then ran into problems with speed and drop outs.
    Eventually got a new router but issues continue.
    Their support teams are useless. Never reply or just lie.
    Steer clear of them.

    I have had intermittent broadband service and poor phone reception for weeks. I have had three engineers round who cannot resolve the issue. All Plusnet do is to try and deflect the blame to Openreach. If Plusnet run their service using Openreach, then it is Plusnets responsibility to coordinate Openreach resources to fix the problem. Poor service.

    Appalling customer service and attitude. I signed up with PlusNet when I moved into a new house in a rural location so cable was not an option. From the outset I found their service poor:
    - lost a days holiday due installation appointment not kept; was told it was an automated 'service' and I didn't need to be in.
    - very little in way of apology for wasting my time, poor attitude form person I finally managed to speak to. Offered £5 (!?) compensation for the inconvenience
    - impossible to get hold of customer services; put on hold for mins only for the call the be cut off, no matter which number I called
    - no option to contact them via email (really? in 2020??)
    - in order to cancel my contract I had to write to them by recorded delivery, the cost of which I had to bear
    - when asked why I was leaving I told them partly due to terrible customer service and was met with a dismissive attitude and only to be told 'its all very well you say we need to employ more staff but its takes 6 months to train them'
    - when advised I was moving to a faster internet provider and that sometimes had buffering streaming to my smart TV was told that it wasn't possible to use a smart TV, even though I had been using one with their service for 3 years! Again tone of member of staff was rude and dismissive and treated me like I was a bit stupid. They don't listen
    - finally to top it off, I cancelled my direct debit when terminating my contract, which I advised them of. I have today received notification that they haven't been able to take payment of £4.52 for the settlement of my account and if no payment made within 14 days they will refer to a debt collection agency!!??

    AVOID, TAKE YOUR BUSINESS ELSESWHERE

    All of your worst nightmares. Beware of switching. Broadband worked reasonably well with Sky but since switching no TV, computer, wifi in house. Plus net detected a fault on the land line. BT and therefore not our fault. How often do providers seek to blame somebody else. It was absolutely fine the day before and the month before that and the six months before that. Why did I switch - I was promised seamless transfer, slightly faster speeds and marginally cheaper service. Deep regret.

    Plusnet broadband was reasonably reliable but as soon as things go wrong, they are shocking. Customer services are dreadful. On the phone to them every day pretty much for the last 14 days as my internet is down. They keep saying they will ring back and don't so I have to keep ringing up and can be on hold each time for up to 40 minutes only to get another 'We'll ring you back tomorrow'. I would NOT recommend them under any circumstances.

    Have been with Plusnet over 10 years and have decided to switch to fibre as this is now available at local exchange. Was told I would be switched on 18 August now it will be on the 31st August also not told of capped upload speed of 2mb which is reported on various forums unless you pay a premium price for 20mb something which was previously included, had I known at the time would not have switched and gone elsewhere. Tried contacting customer service this morning with a wait time broadcast of 45 minutes, how they are allowed to advertise customer service on television advertisements as been the best thing about Plusnet beggars belief, it's about time the advertising standards Authority looked into these claims.

    Appalling customer service . I have just been on hold for 50 Minutes. Not the first time recently. Generally 30 minutes and then cut off.
    Forget Plusnet.

    Still no broadband despite getting emails saying its now active. Two week after my go live date. Now told its another 5 days before it goes live. Been lied to by the support staff who tell you they will ring back but never do. Wont discuss compensation and they have not joined the automatic compensation scheme so I will have to fight for it. AVOID.

    We were originally with Talk Talk when we signed up with Virgin to get a better deal. However, despite several texts from Virgin confirming they would be attending for the installation, no one actually turned up! Were very annoyed especially as my husband, who was very ill with the flu at that time, spent the day moving furniture, taking stuff off of wardrobes etc., so that they could run the cables. Decided to stay with Talk Talk who informed us that it was "too late to cancel the cancellation" and disconnected our broadband and telephone line the next day. Bit annoyed with Talk Talk and Virgin so signed up with Plusnet. Very smooth from start to finish. They reconnected our phone line the very next day. Had to wait a couple of weeks for fibre optic broadband to be installed as they were fully booked, however, on the day of the installation the engineer (who was very nice) turned up at 8.00am ringing beforehand to say he was on his way. Throughout the 2 week wait for the broadband we received regular texts and emails with updates. Since having the service installed we have had absolutely no problems with the broadband or telephone. My only slight niggle was that I had to ring them a couple of times (once to get the caller display added to the phone and the other time to confirm they would still be coming to install as Virgin made me a bit paranoid)and had to wait about 50 minutes on one occasion and about 35 minutes on the other before I got to speak to anyone. However, as the calls are free I just got on with my life whilst having the phone on loudspeaker. Once I did speak to them, they were very pleasant on the phone and actually sounded like they knew what they were talking about. All in all I am very pleased with their service and would definitely recommend them.

    I joined plusnet mainly because of their good customer satisfaction about 2 years ago. I am afraid they are now rubbish. I have been trying to get through to customer service over a week now. I often give up after waiting for over 30 mins. Repeatedly using the storms in the Uk as an excuse for their inefficiencies. I am afraid Plusnet sucks. Looking for another provide!!!!!

    I can only echo every bad review. When after 30 minutes plus to make contact they will tell you anything to get you off the line and then you find out once again it is just a pack of lies. Advertising standards should check their adds as they are totally misrepresentative of the service they give.

    Plusnet / New Call Telecom - the epitome of FALSE ECONOMY - you'll be attracted by their offer of cheap broadband... However, my experince from that point on has been nothing but pure disappointment... It took them over a month to send a BT engineer to my property to work out there was a fault on my line - cue huge bills from having to surf the web at coffee shops or on my 3G phone... In one month I went over my download usage limit - I was asked to pay 50% (immediately by debit card) of the capped over usage to clear my account - which I dutifully did. How annoyed I was then to next month receive a Direct Debit from my bank account of almost £100 - equivalent to approx. 6 months of what I would expect to be billed. It transpired that despite the previous call where I was informed of the over usage and I cleared the account AND asked for my download limit to be increased to 'unlimited' they had only succeeded in taking my payment by debit card - they had not in fact increased by download limit to unlimited, NEITHER had they allocated my payment - meaning I was in effect being double charged for something which should have not been allowed to continue.
    As I type this a month has elapsed, countless hours of phone calls and promises made which appear to come to no fruition when the promised refunds fail to materialise in my account. At the last call I have just made I have been promised a full refund into my account NEXT month - but I hold no hope - it's been promised before and not happened. My money is still with the company - in effect being held to ransom - all the while they continue to extract monthly direct debits without sign of recourse. In a nutshell I've overpaid at least 3 times what I thought I was going to be billed (to date) when I first took out the contract. If i were you I'd go for one of the big name reliable companies that won't leave you more out of pocket than you thought you would be.

    This company are so simply not worth dealing with . Their customer service skills are appalling and they only know the reply to your query as being "you have agreed to the contract " funny that as you cant try their product before paying. They have messed up all the DD mandates , sent letters requesting payment , restricted services yet they had taken the money. After this contract has expired will never use them poss because part of BT that may be another negative too.
    Customer services well that is a joke they never call back and even the senior management never return calls maybe that there is indeed no senior management anyway? Quite simply they do not do what the say , never return calls and simply run a managed list of quotes off a calling sheet to deflect the issue and absolve themselves of any responsibility to the customer . hope the loose the business and go bang . I would so definitely recommend Vodafone never had a issue
