    Don’t do mistake and dont join them because of the price.
    I been with them and I swear it was disconnecting every 5 minutes. Horrible system.
    Also I left them last month but they charged me double because of the mistake they made that my contract would finish earlier, they have to refund me £25 but rubbish customer service didn’t solve the issue.
    Save your money and dont join them and save your money and time

    Disgraceful customer service. Moved house and then had to deal with total incompetence. Don't go near these cowboys.

    Just a small problem with an amnesiac third party router. Kyle was great - just talked me through the process and made sure I had all the necessary details for a quick fix. Excellent - previous service issue was solved promptly and politely too.

    Worst decision ever made, Broadband speeds are diabolical, and randomly drops out it might as well be dial up. Customer service is a joke they obviously employ idiots who can’t use their initiative. I will be taking my disgust to the ombudsman as they are not providing what was promised, and haven’t rectified the problem. I suggest others do the same.

    If only I could give them a 0 review. We are a pharmacy and we should have had Plusnet move our line over on the 27th Aug, but to date 9th Sept still no phone line or broadband. The move was supposed to be from old provider to them and supposedly a simple switch. To date they have not sent out an engineer after promising us on 3 occasions and all they seem to do is continue to make false promises. We have had one of our housebound patients go into hospital as he was not able to get through to us in order to have his medication delivered. Absolutely diabolical company, worst provided I have ever dealt with. You can even talk to the managers all they say is they will only tell you the same as what we tell you !!

    Recently had to leave plusnet through moving home. They were all nice nicey until I'd left. Then the threats came. Contacted customer service average answer 25 minutes about them charging me £162 for an exit fee. It's our mistake don't worry. But yet the threat as been escalated to a debt agency. Absolutely diabolical service. Don't go near.

    Terrible mistake changing to Plusnet. From day one had issues connecting to internet:
    1)Buffering
    2)Loss of sound when watching films on Netflix or Prime
    3) frozen screen
    4) unresponsive computers
    5) upstairs always and even sometimes downstairs sat right next to router end up using mobile data to watch something
    6) constantly router goes off
    7) speeds drop

    They say it's because they provide budget routers which need us to buy our own booster...never told us that when they tied us into the dam contract! They say they just provide the connection but are not responsible for what happens to it in the house.
    Never had problems with Sky..sadly changed to save some money..big regret. Can't wait for the contract to end.

    I’ve been with Plusnet for six years and am really happy with them as my broadband provider. My internet works perfectly most of the time, the few times I’ve had issues they have sorted them out really quickly. They are easy to get hold of on the phone (don’t have to wait too long in the queue), the customer service is excellent - they are friendly, helpful and quick to find a solution. I just upgraded from standard to Fibre broadband with Plusnet and it went without a hitch - had an issue setting up the new router but they answered my call within minutes and provided a solution immediately, now I have superfast internet. Really happy with Plusnet, so glad I decided to renew with them.

    I suspect many of the recent 1 star are fakes, someone trying to reduce plus net rating. I have no problems with plus net, other than being put in a queue for customer support. Speed is good, never drops below 70Mb/s. Very few drop outs (I can't remember one since BT (or whatever they are called now) fixed a fault on the line about 3 years ago. I have been with pmus net for at least 15 years and can not see me changing ant time soon.
