    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

    They say that you get what you pay for but, even though Plusnet are relatively cheap, they manage to underachieve as a low cost provider.

    World's clunkiest email "service" constantly crashes and, even when it is working, it is unbelievably slow.

    Don't attempt to contact "support" unless you have hours to spare and want to be palmed off.

    USELESS... USELESS... USELESS... One star for anything in the rating is faaaaaar too much... They are guilty of "Breach of contract" continuously... WHY ARE WE NOT PROTECTED FROM SCAMSTERS LIKE THIS!!?
    I wrote to Karen Brocklebank-Lambert their Head of billing to stop wasting my time and just send me a summons to court!... we can let the judge decide... SHE CANNOT READ!...
    She now sends me a letter telling me I owe them £42 and she is employing debt collectors!...
    THE TAX PAYING PUBLIC NEEDS TO BE PROTECTED!

    In my honest opinion. Trying to be totally fair. Sky gave me better performance and support was just as good as Plusnet. To sum up my plusnet experience in one word.
    Rubbish. Yes total rubbish

    Appalling support.
    Opened a slow connection ticket in Dec 14, its now Feb 15 and nothing has been fixed, they blame BT who say there is an issue but they can't find it and that' all they can do!
    Ticket goes unanswered for weeks at a time despite being chased by myself.
    Avoid Plusnet.

    This company should use the motto of "We do you over proudly" There service is awful and there is absolutely no customer service or ability to deal with any complaint or issues what so ever. I would rather walk five miles to talk to someone in person than use their rubbish service avoid at all costs

    ONE STAR IS FA A A A R TOO MUCH

    ---2015-7-08---
    Called them to complain...AGAIN... about their useless ISP service...

    Call lasted 37m41s on my cellphone!...

    RESULTS!... TOTAL WASTE OF TIME!...

    Called a couple of times in the past few months...
    Expected call waiting time is ALWAYS at least 15m...
    I believe it is kept at this so people will just not waste their valuable time waiting for them to answer... (crafty plan?)

    Then they ask you you a tring of annoying questions
    "Just to justify they are speaking to complainer!!"
    Yes I am spending 31minutes 41seconds mobile time because... well I've got nothing better to do...(while my ISP is not working)

    Then they make me go through all the technical connecting, disconnecting, changing routers and telling me to move my original router to the main telephone box to check it there (which would involve a lot of office furniture moving)
    and if I don't and they find a wire fault somewhere...
    I WILL HAVE TO PAY THE CALL OUT!!...

    THEY told me, about 2 months ago to move it in the first place...(didn't offer to pay me for my time and professional services)...

    WHAT THE HECK DO I PAY A MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION FOR!???...

    I signed a contract stating that I would pay Plusnet a certain fee each month if they supply me with uninterrupted bandwidth 24 hours a day for each day of the month...

    I am paying... FACT!
    Plusnet is NOT SUPPLYING!... FACT!
    "Breach Of Contract"... I certainly think so!...

    Avoid if you are on a long line. Had years of reliable 3Mbps+ service from Demon Internet when I changed to Plusnet (for unlimited downloads). After six months is started dropping out with "LCP down errors". Two Openreach engineers and eight ADSL modems later I can hold onto a 2Mbps connection. And now it is costing me £30 to cancel this rubbish service (our village has been forced to organise its own internet provision).

    Avoid at all costs! Changing from a By fibre line (60/17Mbps) to Plusnet saw my speed drop to 37/10. After 10 days of contacting customer services, they managed to get to 40/16. However, they still cannot get me to my minimum guaranteed speed, never mind the speed I had (on the same line) as BT. This is now week 4 of contacting them. Customer service reps are very polite, but the resolutions just don't happen. Will be leaving ASAP.

    I've been with Plusnet for years, I mean many many years now, and until now I was a happy customer. Even when they cut off my neighbour by mistake in my previous property, which delayed my broadband connection even further, I still liked them!

    I don't often post negative reviews unless a company really get's my back up. And whilst I've had many a happy year with Plusnet, they've recently managed to irritate me over a quibble of a cancellation fee. It's sad that I never reviewed them when I was happy with them, but needs must.

    I honestly think Plusnet customer service is slowly getting worse. Years ago it was impeccable, but possibly since BT took over the reins things have started to take a turn for the worse. You see I cancelled my old broadband/phone package mid-July and we agreed it would end 2nd August. It was a piece of cake to cancel, and I didn't feel pressured to stay in the slightest - which is good - but at the time I got no mention of the dreaded cancellation fee. Now was that because I mentioned I was probably going to sign up again? I don't know, all I know was that If I wanted to transfer my service from one house to another, they weren't going to offer me any deals, yup absolutely NONE! So after weighing up the options I decided to cancel so I could sign up as a new customer and take advantage of their current deals, and at no time was their ANY mention of that cheeky cancellation fee. In fact, he made out that my standard monthly broadband/phone fee was the last I would be paying.

    So throughout August I started to receive a load of emails and texts from Plusnet claiming a random fee of £19.30 is due, I quote: "To avoid any restrictions to your service", ummm, but I cancelled it, so you should have restricted it when you said you would, by cutting it off!

    So I took a look at their website as I thought it was all very strange, I even discovered the cancellation fee section, but the figures on the site weren't matching the figure I was being quoted, so surely it can't be that?

    So today (1st Sept 2016) I finally called them up. Their representative confirmed it was indeed a cancellation fee, but he couldn't tell me why it had been apparently discounted. Perhaps it's a loyalty discount he said, seriously, do they not keep track of what's going on (although I'm guessing from my need to rant that they don't).

    So I tell them to listen back to the recording of my initial conversation when I cancelled - we all know they record them after all. I explained that there was no mention ever made. He then went off to speak to the powers that be, and came back and gave me the ultimatum that got my back up, "if it's not paid they will take action and cancel my new account." At no point had I said I wouldn't pay, I was just querying what it was, why it wasn't the standard cancellation rate, what on earth was the discount (even though secretly we all love a discount), and can he just confirm that it was ever spoken about.

    Anyway, nothing like a subtle threat to get you weilding your credit card. We all know the world is our oyster when it comes to home broadband. It would appear the toss up I had between Vodafone and Plusnet ended up with me signing up to the wrong company. We all know it costs a company more to attract and sign up new customers than keep the old ones happy, but obviously Plusnet like to make things challenging for themselves. So, if you're signed up with Plusnet and want to cancel, make sure you record the conversation to protect yourself as if no mention is made of such a fee you'll have covered your back unlike me.

    Oh and lastly, Plusnet if you read this, you need to change your recorded message, because it explicitly says you WON'T take payment over the phone, and yet your representative wasn't aware of that as he happily took my money over the phone! Oh dear oh dear

    please do not touch this company with a barge poll. I ordered broadband and telephone service on 26th July. I had to pay for this privilege. 8th August this was meant to go live. The router was only dispatched Thursday. I still haven't received it. I spoke to the supervisor and he said he would order me another one someone has checked the notes and it hasn't been done. 12th August I still haven't received and they just don't care

    The worse broadband supplier I've ever been with. Billed for a fibre service I didn't receive for 2 months, plusnet disconnected me to fix a line fault and gave my fibre line to another customer and told me I would have to wait 2 months until more lines were available.

    Plusnet also managed our switchover from sky.... they failed on this part too as we were faced with letters threatening court for not paying our last 3 months of sky bills, when we were no longer sky customers.

    Customer service is an absolute disgrace, hold times on phone are 40 in+. I am sick to death of being fobbed off and told different nonsense by each of the multiple engineers that have attended to fix a fault that we have had for 6+ months, that still has not been rectified. Also extremely annoyed at plusnets rules on not being allowed to be connected through to a manager when you have a complaint. I have been promised so many call backs but often have to call again and chase up my callback from a manager.

    Avoid this company at all costs, they certainly do not have thir customers at heart.

    Shocking treatment from Plusnet, having been with this company for nearly 6 years they cut us off without warning due to their incompetence. Left without Internet and landline for 8 days now and they phoned mobile yesterday to inform us we can't be reconnected - something to do with copper fibre. Going to have to wait 10 days now for a new provider to install and we will lose our landline number also. I work from home and it has been an absolute nightmare. I would avoid Plusnet at all costs, conflicting versions of why we got cut off by different members of staff. Not truthful.

    Appalling service! Left with no broadband for 2 months..
    Anytime I tried to call them I was sent to this person and then that person having to explain multiple times. I called 1 May to disconnect my broadband this I found was not done so I called again in June they then demanded I pay a months bill even tho they did not cancel it was instructed to.
    I was called a liar harassed & sent threatening emails about
    Adding more moneys on to a bill I should never have been sent in 1st place. Company is a joke. Save yourself the time
    & money & go else where.. the broadband froze and we lost days were we couldn’t even watch tv. I called to complained nothing was done. A bunch of imbeciles.

    Absolutely terrible experience with plusnet. I was told that I would receive £75 cashback upon signing up with plusnet (on a recorded phone call). After signing up and FIVE phone calls over the space of 3 months plusnet kept insisting that the cashback cheque would arrive soon. After this I began written correspondence and they began to claim that I had signed up online and there was no cashback offer that I was eligible for (effectively accusing me of lying). I replied that this was not true and sent a list of dates & times of all phone calls, requesting that as they were recorded conversations I wanted them to be listened to otherwise I would be referring the case to Ofcom. Someone got back to me a few days later to apologise and say that after listening to the phone calls my cheque was in the post. To have to chase this up for 3 months and then be accused of lying was infuriating and exhausting and all-in-all a terrible experience in terms of their customer service.

    If you have a problem this is where the problems start. The customer service is poor. Many times it is almost impossible to speak to someone unless you are willing to wait on the phone, waiting times of up to 30 minutes is not unusual.

    charged me paying by card because they chose not to take it by Direct debit.
    Speed/ reliabilty was real issue.
    Now that iv left them and another broadband company is using the line, PLusnet is still taking a monthly payment from me!!

    Terrible ISP, told our broadband would be active within 7 days... 2 weeks on still waiting!! Takes over 20 mins to get through to an advisor or aren't properly trained, give you false information and are quite rude! Would not advise joining as we are planning to leave as soon as contract is up!

    This has to be the worst company in the UK and beyond for customer service. Attempts to contact by phone and online chat were unachievable. Not sure how I am expected to transfer my service when I move house. May have to resort to a letter by post which is ironic given this is supposed to a TELECOMMUNICATIONS company.

    DO NOT touch them with a barge pole ! You will be wittling spoons forever.
    From initial contact, received the router in two days. After that all downhill, never actually used their broadband and went back to my reliable TalkTalk service where issues get resolved straight away and don't get logged and never answered for days on end !

    Been with plusnet for a couple of years after having a terrible customer services experience with BT. Had a fault with my internet and expected nightmares to contact plusnet. Phoned through on an 0800 number and spoke to a English speaking assistant. They tested the line, found a fault, sent out an Engineer to resolve which was all done in a few days. I was constantly updated with the progress and would highly recommend Plusnet.

    Utter rubbish, after complaining my broadband was slow they agreed to send an engineer out only if I agreed to a £60 charge, even though they told me there was a fault on the line. My broadband is still slow and sometimes does not work at all. They trap you with an 18 month contract and then supply you with a sub standard service. They are unprofessional and actually run a complaints department on Facebook!

    No complaints at all. Speeds above those promised. Friendly well informed customer service people with Yorkkshire accents I can hear well and understand. These guys rock.

    The start with Plusnet wasnt the best but a complaint receved prompt attention, from courteous customer services.
    I think they have now cracked it! and all seems well.
