    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 !!

    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.

    The biggest mistake I've ever made was to switch to Plusnet. The Internet connection is so slow and patchy. We can't get Catch Up programmes on Sky TV. Think very carefully if you're considering switching. I can almost guarantee you a far worse service in every respect to the one you're using now. Not fit for purpose.

    terminated my broadband service with no notice, no warning, no apology. Need to redefine what award winning service really is if this is their standard, must be the bottom of the list. Not recommended.

    Been with them for 4.5 years now and overall have had very little problems with them. Any problems were sorted out pretty fast. Overall speed is very good and very rare occasion had any problems. One problem I had was a router failing and was replaced within 3 days. Speed is consistant. They have had problems with their web mail server being very slow to connect and get emails, but but that has improved but still not 100% there yet. I have had good deals with them but its best haggling. So overall very satified with them.

    When I joined Plusnet, only ADSL2+ was available where I live so I had an up to 15mbps broadband speed. The property was newly built so the line had to be installed by BT before I could start. I have no phone and no intention to ever get one so having to pay for a line rental was a sting, but I know that's standard for ADSL.

    When I ordered broadband I was charged then asked to book a date for installation. The earliest date available was almost a month away. Ouch.

    Soon after this, I started receiving parts of text messages trying to tell me there was a problem and asking me to text them back. I tried texting back but the phone number they sent the message from wasn't a valid number for me to text. The company also tried calling me a few times, despite me telling them I was disabled in a way that makes me unable to take phone calls.

    I finally managed to get online at a local pub to see the emails they'd sent me. They told me I'd given them the wrong address and the installation date I had booked was never actually booked. I hadn't given them the wrong address; all the info I gave them at the start was correct. I told them it was the right address and they tried again.

    It got to a week after the date I had originally booked before a BT engineer came, who was very nice. A few days later they turned on the phone line and started charging me the line rental, even though I had never asked for it and it was useless to me without ADSL.

    Weeks passed before they told me the ADSL was turned on, as apparently there was a problem with my account. It took a formal complaint to PlusNet and Citizens Advice to get them to fix the problem. Before the formal complaint, Plusnet had ignored several emails I had sent for two weeks. Even after this, I never received a reply. I expect they ignored me so they wouldn't have to reimburse me for the copious amounts of money I had to spend on BT FON to get online to keep moaning at them.

    After they told me the broadband was ready and working, I struggled with setting up the router as it couldn't connect. It's been some time since they sent me this message, and I'm still without internet, and they've still not responded to my official complaint, request for technical help, or request for reimbursement. I will be getting reimbursed, and I will be taking this to higher authorities.

    I am now down around £100, lost my job, had to restart medication for depression that I managed to come off, lost a lot of sleep, shed many tears and suffered panic attacks due to their terrible service, complete ignorance, and exploitative and malicious conduct.

    Obviously I don't recommend Plusnet. I have never in my life been more abused by a company.

    Had fibre since February 2019. Never had a problem. Never needed to contact them. Now having problems in the last week or so with my wireless connection dropping out every 24 hours or so. I just called and was told they do not guarantee a wireless connection. Never heard such rubbish in all my life. I said should I plug my mobile into my router, and my tablet, echo devices, firestick and smartplugs? Such a stupid comment. Apparently the warranty on the router only lasts 12 months and amazingly it's just out of date and they want £150 for a new one. As my contract is up in August I asked how much it would be to leave early which is £63 so I know what I will be choosing. Never again...

    Outrageously raised prices for MMS.

    DOES NOT support short code (short mobile number that utilities companies and banks use to contact you). If you receive a message from your bank that uses short codes (e.g., 456633), you will not be able to reply to that SMS, however important that might be.

    Called the customer service and some guy responded in most surly voice that they don't support it - that is it.

    Mobile network coverage is poor in many part of the UK and it is pathetic in Germany. So if you have Plusnet and thinking of taking your mobile abroad, think twice.

    I have been with Plusnet for many years. Not on Fibre. I have always found them excellent in every way. Waiting for phone response is a pain sometimes. I would recommend.

    I've had no technical problems with my fibre broadband but I've had loads of trouble with billing.

    As has been said lots here, service is atrocious. Call wait times measured in hours, response to emails measured in days, thought that goes into the response, milliseconds.

    Repeatedly have to explain the problem again and again even though it's all written for them to see. They always try to get out of their obligations by obfuscating so you'll give up. They are rude and ill informed.

    If you sign up, be lucky because if you have any kind of problem, you'll regret choosing Plusnet.

    Broadband speeds between 2mbs and 20mbps never to the 30+ mbps I was promised. WiFi router is very cheap and poor. They then rip you off on landline calls. Call centre response is very poor.

    Absolutely appalling company with disgustingly rude customer service agents. The internet rarely worked and when it did, it was painfully slow, but the worst thing was the 'customer service'. Incompetent at best, outright rude the rest of the time. They ignore emails and messages, and are unpleasant on the phone. I have cancelled my account with them finally and would never use them again, even if they were free! To save yourself a lot of frustration, please use any other company out there, regardless of cost or deals, you'll regret signing up with Plusnet.

    Do not use, shocking customer service and dreadful broadband. Extremely difficult to contact, only option is to be on hold for 30 minutes plus each time as online chat is never available. Broadband speed is appalling, and no help to improve issue. Finally managed to get out of the contract and they've continued to take payment despite being informed we were leaving. Back to waiting 30 minutes on hold to get reimbursed! Worst provider EVER.

    Been waiting over 3 weeks to be connected with broadband. Different excuses every time I ring them. One of the staff said I need to pay £49 extra for a new line to be installed. Terrible stressful experience so far. Between them & Openreach my perfectly fine internet connection which worked before the switch, has become a massive problem.

    I had PlusNet broadband put in due to the English based customer service and support, what I didn't realise was how often I would have to ring them.
    Was sent a faulty modem which only after a month of no broadband they sent a new one out which does work but will need resetting regularly which they send you instructions of how to do this so you don't have to keep ringing them. I would not recommend PlusNet and when contact up with them will be changing.

    Awful. Waiting times on the phone go into the hours, service advertised is not provided and complaints are ignored so you cannot cancel. I've been getting little service and awful customer service for 4 months. It's a scam. Dead lock letter is the only way forward. Avoid at all costs

    Plusnet's broadband service is absolutely horrible. Online gaming is impossible unless you have no other internet-using devices online. Ping is so unstable, ranging from 9mbps to thousands. Download speed also fluctuates constantly, usually at around 16mbps. Upload speed rarely surpasses 1mbps. Overall, I would not recommend this provider if you have more than one person using the internet at once.

    Worst provider there is, you will rarely get the speeds you are paying for. Not only that but its the most unreliable service out there, been with them for a few years as I don't play for the internet in the house. In them years of being a customer my internet has go down way too many times at least 5 times a week, you will lose all internet for about 30 mins then its back but still slow. 0/10 Would recommend that people who are looking for a provider this is most definitely the one to avoid.

    Awful service, really disappointed considering the adverts.

    Called to make an order, fairly painless - then got a text that they'd changed the date for the engineer. Fair enough, happens but meant this wouldn't work for me so cancelled the order.

    I had my 80 quid returned then taken back 5 days later on the 5th of November. It's now the 19th and I'm still waiting for this to come back after 14 days and three calls including a 40 minute, 20 minute and 40 minute wait on the phone to a charged number. Not only that, the ticket was responded to on the online helpdesk by me on the 6th and have had no response since, what a joke. Would never recommend, will never use again.

    Was really looking forward to the high levels of service reported too.

    Awful internet provider, one minute you have a solid 70mbps download then not even 5 minutes later it's down to less than 1. It will randomly cut out for about 10 minutes. Would never recommend to a friend

    I've been with plusnet for a while and it started off OK. However, it went downhill when I moved house and more recently, trying to cancel the service due to a house move and dissatisfied service. Briefly put.. Didn't have acceptable broadband in the property for 3 months after moving in. Granted not all plusnets fault but didn't help. Also Had to either pay a 'moving fee' or committ to a further 24 months (swore he said 18 months, but they have it on record allegedly). Should have told them to do one then and get a better deal elsewhere, but gave them the benefit of the doubt. Had technical issues a few months later and was told it was the router, so to resolve it, I either had to pay £50 for another one or commit to ANOTHER 12 months. I said no thanks and have had to put up with poor internet until contract runs out. Moving again, leaving contract early had to pay £91 cancellation fee. I don't care if they're from Yorkshire, bad service is bad service.

    I am paying for 14 mB/s, however, I am averaging on 800 kB/s - 1 mB/s. The internet disconnects between 4-10 times every day. I can't even remember the last day it didn't disconnect. It is absolute rubbish, as we pre-paid 12 months.

    When I call or chat with customer services, they keep telling me the service is good, when I can see in front of me the download speed being 0.8 mB/s. The only solution they present, is having an engineer over, which would cost me £65. I'm struggling to see why I should be the one charged for their absolute ridiculous (broadband- and customer) service. 1 star is too high of a rating.

    The worst Fibre Broadband ever, Plusnet never tells you the true speed, they con you into Ultra Fast Fibre Broadband of speeds up to 79Mbps but they only deliver 20-22Mbps on WiFi and up to 40Mbps on Ethernet connection. So, unless you run cables from the router to every computer in the house or every mobile phone (impossible) you will only get 20-2Mbps max. Biggest CONNS in the market

    If it was at all possible to give negative stars, I would give Plusnet minus 5 stars. The broadband is not only slow but redefines the word, frustrating. I am not exaggerating when I say that I cannot leave my room without the internet cutting off and needing to be reset and connected to about 10 times. Yes they're cheap but that is the only redeeming quality. Don't bother using Plusnet. You'll have a more pleasant experience repeatedly slamming your fingers in a door.

    I stayed with Plusnet for 5 years for fear that others would be even worse. When I tried to leave (moving house to rural North Yorkshire where broadband now comes by radio link) they said I have signed up for a year. I let them keep taking the payments for the rest of that year despite getting no service in return, but then they kept going. I have cancelled my direct debit, and now they are threatening me with debt collection, even though I haven't used the service for 6 months! I can't even contact them to discuss, they send me emails to which I can't reply, and the wait to call them is over an hour - in working hours only. I can't spare that time in working hours! Plusnet market that they have the best customer service but this is a fat lie, I would strongly advise anyone to stay well clear.

    I have been trying to get a hold of Plus-net for the last 40 minutes and as soon as I get hold of them I am then put on hold again for another 30 minutes before giving up. I am trying to set up a new contract as well as change an existing contract. General speed is good although drops out a lot. Customer services is pretty poor and you blow your allowance on trying to call them and sitting awaiting a response.

    The worst thing in the world. Constant problems, no one following up or trying to help, hours and hours of my life wasted.

    It's been almost a month and still no live internet connection. What the heck is going on?

    Just don't put yourself through it.

    I really cannot emphasise enough how incompetent Plusnet's customer support is. The actual broadband service is pretty good. It's fast and generally stable (except for when there are faults on the Openreach network of course). The problems all happen when you have cause to contact their customer support. They have failed on everything I have asked them to do. They failed on a house move and I was without internet for a week. They failed to raise a line fault to Openreach twice - the first time I was without internet for six days, the second time I was without internet for 8 days and slow internet for a further 9 days. And instead of apologising and giving you your money back they will ignore you. If you have the energy to argue about it you MIGHT get them to acknowledge it is their fault and give you a pro-rated refund of their fees (NOT BT line rental) but the amount is an insult - about £5 a week.
    The low prices are tempting and it is good value IF you never have a fault, never have to move house, never have a billing problem etc. But it's too big a risk to take. I strongly advise you to go with one of the broadband providers in the automatic compensation scheme (see Ofcom website). Their customer support is generally much faster and more professional because if they don't sort these problems out they lose money.

    Sometimes review sites really just need a 'no stars' option... and this is one of those occasions. Plusnet customer service is beyond appalling. The staff are polite and apologetic but when you really need them they let you down badly - repeatedly. It takes over an hour to get through on the phone. If you raise a ticket it will be days before they look at it - they may not look at it at all. They say they will do things and don't. Their automated fault reporting system doesn't report faults. Their automated billing system raises random bills. When your bill is due they block your access to their website so your only way of logging in or contacting them is via another internet provider. Honestly, I could go on all night. There are thousands and thousands of furious customers. How they are still trading is a complete mystery.
