Reviewer Location Reviewing Date Ratings
Had Fibre Broadband since 2011. BT Infinity was my first taste of superfast broadband back then. In the last 8 years have tried Sky, TalkTalk and PlusNet but back with BT since 2017 and will stick with them as had numerous troubles with all the others. For me BT has proved very reliable with 99.999% up time and great speeds. The one time my router failed they replaced within 48hrs, and when the line from my house to telephone pole had an issue they had OpenReach out to fix within 12hrs, on a bank holiday weekend! My internet connection is essential to my life, BT not the cheapest but so far have easily proved the most reliable. Came on here as my BT contract was up and wanted to check out ratings for some alternative providers who were offering some amazing deals. However weighing everything up I think I'll pay the extra and stick with BT as (in my area at least) they're delivering a pretty solid service. NB - I have SuperFast Fibre 1 and get 67MB/Down and 18MB/Up which is well above the advertised speeds so very happy with that and more than enough for my needs, even with 5 smart TV's in the house!

Bridgend BT  
Wishing is read some reviews before changing my broadband provider. My change was supposed to happen yesterday. I had an email the day before from BT saying this could take upto 11.50pm and they would contact me once the service was available. Still not working when I went to bed last night. This morning my old talk talk broadband is no longer working quite rightly, no message from BT, still no BT internet my computer gave me a number to call BT which I did, told the phone system what the problem was and my phone number..... waited......'we're sorry or offices are now closed" so thru didn't think to have that message at the start of the call then

London BT  
Do not go near this company unless you want frustration after frustration. spent 1 hour 30mins on phone last week making an appointment. Guess what they never turned up or sent the router out.
Now i'm another hour into chat trying to make another appointment.

Do not use this company. I have never in my whole life experienced such incompetence. Do not go there. Do not consider giving them any of your money.
Keighley BT  
I live in a two bedroom flat in central London and BT's internet service was so poor that I could not use services like Netflix, Amazon Prime or Youtube. The wifi signal was too weak and even using basic internet services, like online banking, was unbelievably slow.

In my experience, BT's internet/wifi service is useless. I spent 3 months talking to BT customer service representatives trying to resolve the issue. Nothing BT suggested improved the situation so after 3 months, I joined another internet provider. BT then informed me that I would be charged £225 for breaking their contract early. In my opinion, BT should have refunded me for the months I paid them but didn't receive a useable service.

BT: Terrible internet service. Outrageous customer service. Avoid BT. There are better service providers out there. I will never use BT again.

London BT  
Advertised as minimum 65Mbps download speed. Lucky if I get 55; mostly 40-50 in the evenings when most people including myself wish to use it. Not good enough really. 20% incidence of signal lost during viewing films etc. Very inconvenient. I have tried everything I know (BT speed booster, router next to computer and TV; no additional user in house)make no difference. BT Customer services claim that there is no broadband fault and that my speed is maximal. Not so. Will be looking elsewhere!

Surrey BT  
Moved back to BT in December 2018, as they had just installed a new five cabinet at the end of my road.
Bought the ‘super fast fibre BB’ package on the assumption I’d be fed from the new cabinet!!
Oh no...... they’ve left me on an old cabinet routing that in 4.1km of twisted copper pair, so I fluctuate between 1.6 and 3.7mb.
They won’t re-route me as it is an engineering expense to them, and I fall into he ‘superfast fibre’ category between 2-5mb.....crap!
Not happy does not cover my experience!!!

Spencer Place Farm, Sandy Lane, Waltham Chase BT  
Just been on the phone 50 minutes to make an appointment for a follow up appointment due to broadband not working. Ridiculous still not any nearer. Now 15 minutes into BT online chat - it's a joke. Stay clear of BT - do not use them unless you want to be put on hold where you can hear all the staff laughing in background and nothing getting done

Ripping off the country. Am I the only person that can see this?.. In 1996 CableTel dug up 90% of the streets in the UK to install fibre optic cables. CableTel was soon to become NTL in 1998. 2002 I moved into my new property. NTL we're offering fibre optic broadband where you had to have a BT line to subscribe. I took up the offer which was giving 16mps download speeds runnining 2 PC's which is faster than I have on BT's ADSL standard in my recent new property. BT phoned me to upgrade but declined. After declining, my broadband sped has dropped. We could use 2 gaming consoles, a laptop and phones the same time no problem. I rang them up to complain about this and told me that I'm on the old copper cable.. I pissed myself laughing asking "What copper cable?" Virgin and Telewest took over NTL contracts, you can't get Virgin without a BT line, so BT have owned the cables since NTL went bankrupt. I told him on the phone that if he could prove to me that they can supply the whole country with broadband through a copper line at speeds of 10 to 18mbs then I will take up the offer, as I know that broadband has always been FibreOptic, otherwise we'd be on dial up. It's a massive con and we are letting them get away with it.

Neath BT  
Unexpected, amazing service.
I spoke with Michael, form the case management in Liverpool (that wat it says on the text send to me within an hour of my conversation which was at 8.20 pm!), who was amazing and went above and beyond of my expectations. Usually, I am not happy with BT, but on this occasion, Michael sorted out everting within an hour (I was expecting to wait about two weeks and to make a few more calls, as usual).
If BT had more agents like Michael, I would definitely consider moving my mobile service and my cable TV to them.

Thank you Michael,

The cost of the service is too much. You don’t get any offers. If you are struggling for your contract payment and need to downgrade, this isn’t possible. I am cancelling as soon as my contract runs out. If I could do now I would. So Do think twice before choosing them.

Swindon BT  
Honest review - broadband is really good (5/5), customer service is ok - bur pretty slow sometimes on online chats (4/5). BT rewards - good idea to introduce these but 2 months passed and still waiting for my card to be sent - have contacted them several times already, lets see if I will ever receive it (2/5). Also i didn’t really like that I have been charged for 2 weeks from ordering to installation (1/5) - either installation time should be reduced or they should charge for the broadband from the day that it is actually installed. Overall, pretty impressed with broadband but they should manage other things better.

Terrible. 3 weeks into contract we haven't been connected to the internet yet. They promised an engineer will come 3 times but no one came. Customer service lies as what happened today.

Avoid BT. Worse service ever.
Lost a lot of time and days waiting for an engineer which never came. Failed promises over and over again.

After numerous phone calls and their failed promises 3 weeks later they have not fixed our broadband yet. They will twist things and make it your fault.

Eastbourne BT  
Having spent a great deal of time "chatting" to BT persons on a few occasions, I am still not receiving the super fast 2 broadband speed which I am paying for. I am not sure which way to turn now as when I moved house 10 years ago, I was torn between BT and another company I was with to getting a working landline and broadband in the new home...it cost me time, more money and considerable stress. "Chatting" doesn't seem to resolve matters......

Biggleswade BT  
Would have given 0 stars.
Had an order placed by them and they put me on infinity 2 despite only being able to get a maximum speed of 21mbps at an extortionate price which subsequently put me in a new contract. On a good day the best speed achieved is 11mbps and that was at silly o'clock in the morning. Constant buffering, umpteen faults on the line resulting in being unable to make calls or go online. Having extra services added that were not wanted or requested and then having a battle to get them removed. Passed from pilla to post with no one taking responsibility or ownership. Will no doubt need to take the issues to ADR and ombudsman.
The TV package isn't worth the cost, now tv and Netflix combined are better value for money.
My advice is to get service from a more reliable company that has great customer service

Dreadful from start to finish, countless problems trying to setup in multiple houses
The Call centres they provide are next to useless, their english language skills are awful and their technical skills and knowledge even worse. Had BT broadband in 4 different properties and its been intermittent and dropped out all the time and never been the speed quoted. Overprived and you can find much better deals out there now.

Brighton BT  
In my (long) experience of BT I can say that BT provides an appalling broadband service. Although the exchange is across the road from my house the download speed is now only 0.23 Mbps which makes broadband almost unusable. (There seems to be some continual problem at the exchange). Yet I am told that this is an acceptable speed! I am paying £55 a month for this service plus phone calls.

Fort William BT  
no stars for BT. Mind bendingly awful in every way. We have been battling to get our phone line to work for 5 years and the internet also which operates spasmodically so you can't get a refund. Each time we are fobbed off with the 'it isn't us its Open Reach' excuse. If you are lucky enough to get an Open Reach engineer to actually come at the time stated they say 'not us mate problem is with BT.' We are in a rural area with the new SUBSIDISED Rural Fibre option supplied to outside our gate but we are still being fobbed off and passed from department to department with no one taking ownership of the incompetence.
IP18 6SJ BT  
Been without Internet for a week, Even though BT promised to have it sorted on 3 different occasions, today Open Reach tell me it will be out for upto a month. BT's response is to pass me from pillar to post, ending up with Paul from Cardiff. He read continually from his notes and kept going on mute to write more notes saying the same thing !!! To be honest an absolute disgrace, I've been with then for 20 odd years and they are happy for me to be without Internet for a month but won't let me cancel my contract - that's how to keep customers - what a service !! - appalling from top to bottom

Promised speeds nearer 50mbs and at the beginning that’s what we received, then the cancellation date passed and speed drops to18mbs. BT first say fault at the exchange, then line outside house now it’s inside the house and a possible £85 charge. Fault promised to be fixed by 26th - now 28th and still poor speed

Wales BT  
BT are an absolute JOKE. Ordered my installation on Jan 5 and was told would be installed on Jan 16. Install was cancelled, and due to "technical complications" had to cancel the order and reorder on Jan 12.

That put the date back to Jan 22, but connections got it back to Jan 16. Then was told the installation was cancelled AGAIN.

Was told it would be done on Jan 28, and have now been informed that the engineer WON'T be able to install... AGAIN!

BT are an absolute JOKE.

They're too big and just don't care about their customers. Stick with a smaller supplier who takes care of their customers.

Worse customer service ever. Call them in August to renew the contract..clearly asking them to pay the same amount of money 53.73£ it was monthly. The person on the phone dishonestly told me that the bill was going to be the same and now I have a contract till February 2020 with a bill of 62.99£ for something that I didn’t ask and I didn’t want. When I have called them I was offered a discount of 4£ with a new contract for 6 months ending on August 2020. Totally joke. Can’t wait to leave them for good and not recommended to anybody. Stay away from BT!!!!

Oldham BT  
The worst service I have ever received!

I was initially sold a package which was at a great price and thought this would be a simple and successful purchase.

I was informed it could take a week to install the broadband, which was not an major issue.

Then I started receiving calls and messages daily from a call centre that barely talked a word of English, and after 9 days realised they were trying to tell me they had to cancel the order and start again. This frustrated me but I allowed it to happen, as I had little choice.

To cut a long story short after 2-3 weeks I was told this had to happen again and it could take up to 3 months for the service to be installed. I simply told them to cancel and I would go elsewhere.

This is not acceptable for this day of age, and I will never attempt to go with BT again!

I spent 8 months with a fraction of the speed I was supposed to get via Fibre Broadband plsu the hub kept resetting about 6 or 7 times a day.

The help I received was awful, they didnt send a new hub out when they said they would and kept threatening to charge me £130 to look at it.

Bought out the last 6 months of the contract to go back to Virgin just to stop the stress. Only chose BT for cheap sports but its really not worth the hassle
