Had 12 months of serious broadband issues, now have issues with a mobile service too.

Let me explain - I noticed broadband connection issues, called out their Openreach guys, fixed it so no problems right? - Wrong! lost connection 3 times more, engineer sent out, he hooked up terminal to my line box which displayed a different number, so he went out to check, returned to say my private line was unplugged (stolen) obviously previous engineers working etc - then told there's ample space for new lines etc - then fixed issue and made report back to BT. BT sent the standard email eg: case closed, then line got hijacked again - altogether lost about 2 months internet time, which after months of phone conversations was eventually credited to my account.

Took out a 2nd service - a mobile phone contract approx £372 pa for I Phone SE (6 year old phone!!), which was a 'recommendation' from 'Sales Dept' - sounded ok, biggest mistake I made -- phone battery issues galore, to a point where phone battery depleted from 8 hours a day (only switched on, and no other usage) to a mere 3 hours after a full recharge!

BT wouldn't take responsibility, tech support was refused, so got passed to Apple instead. Problem was the battery, Apple sent just a refurbished replacement model, not brand new or a newer model offered.

Moving on 7 months later - they double billed me due to 'automated billing system error' - which messed my finances up for 3 months, BT tried to stick me with an engineer call out fee of £180 - based on their customer service suggestion and insisted a broadband check be done at my end to help solve the slow speed issue.

Fault was found to be BT's and not damage to my equipment etc - so another credit made to my account - I should think so.....

Forward a few months and I paid my mobile bill by credit slip at my bank. BT sends me a reminder to restrict my service etc, I explained it was paid 20 days earlier, assured my service was restored, but I owed them £55 for 'other mobile services' which they couldn't explain what these extra's were - actually illegal as all charges must be billed in detail which this wasn't - I questioned this, requested in-depth details and promised to pay once proper itemised bill is forwarded - but none came, yet their still trying to bill me for a non existent extra that I know I never requested as my bill is just for the phone and is one charge only for unlimited calls. so nothing else to pay.

They then sent me a further reminder, threatening account termination, along with debt collection action and that I would be stuck with extra fees for non-payment etc - a very aggressive letter indeed. If only they checked their bank account to see the bank transfer, hmmmm. So got proof of payment from my bank, agent reconnected my service, but few days later - BT disconnected me again for reasons unknown.

Don't get me started on the nightmare call transfer system they force on their customers, or the rude agents intent on blasting policy instead of active listening skills that should be employed to understand the mere basic of info needed to sort an issue.

Leicestef BT  
I started with BT almost 3 years ago after moving to an address where Virgin Media was unavailable. I had no major problem getting started with BT with everything being as it should be regarding my phone, TV, Sport and Broadband 'package'. The contract was 12 months. There were no major problems in that first 12 months, however when coming to renew I had an email from BT before the contract expired offering me a Broadband renewal at a reasonable price but with a contract for 18 months not 12. I spoke to them via their helpline but was told 18 months was now their minimum contract period. I agreed to this. A few weeks later they contacted me again about my TV and sport contract!!!!!! I thought I had just renewed this but it turns out the verbally agreed renewal was just for the Broadband BUT the TV and Sport package were now a minimum of 24 months. So, there is the major problem - how can I watch the final 6 months of my TV and Sport package if I decide not to renew my broadband? Sneaky. Having spoken with my wife we decided to go ahead with the TV and Sport as we had already committed to the Broadband.
Fast Forward 21 months - suddenly realise that my monthly bill had shot up to £80 from around £40. I contact BT who tell me that I am out of contract with my Broadband and therefore have no 'deal' and the price has risen to £52 (a lot of money, especially as I can only get a maximum of 25mbps where I live via FTTC) I point out that BT did NOT contacted me regarding the end of my broadband deal but obtained no explanation or response from the BT 'assistant'. I enquired about reducing my cost of my existing 'plan' by cancelling the BT Sport and TV package that to be honest we don't watch much at all. In this day and age of Netflix, Youtube and other streaming TV services, BT's TV is not an attractive proposition. This is probably why they hike up the price of their broadband post contract to offset the lack of customers taking up their TV options. To cut a long story a little shorter, my BT 'assistant' could not offer me any sort of decent broadband deal so I am cancelling everything. My 'early termination' charges are way lower than remaining with BT so I'm off. Having placed an order with a different supplier for just Broadband and phone line, (NOT a BT subsidiary of EE or Plusnet) I am now receiving text messages from BT asking me to reconsider. To be fair to BT, I was never unhappy with the Broadband and had few drop-outs and would have remained with BT for many more years, however, due to their underhand sneaky price hiking and contracts of unequal length designed to trap their customers, I will NEVER trust BT again. Deals can be agreed and negotiated but trust cannot. Goodbye BT - Forever.

Leeds BT  
Had tv and broadband package which came with £100 on a debit card and free bt sports. Tried to use the card which doesn’t work , can’t contact anyone!! Also had my monthly bill increased , I phoned to make a complaint and was told after a long discussion that my bill would not increase. Forward a month and my bill increased, called again to complain and was told the previous advisor should not have agreed that , made a complaint and was told they would look into the complaint . Just had a phone call and been told my bill will increase , I told the advisor you wouldn’t fill a car up with fuel and half way through the garage decides to increase the price by 10p a ltr. THIS IS LEGALISED ROBERY

Derbyshire BT  
Someone mentioned in the reviews about BT as big trouble, that says all about it and I agree. You will not get any notification about price rise, you will only come to know until you check your bank statement / a/c balance online. When you enquire about it you would be said that an email is been sent to you. Then you have to pay whatever extra charges as per terms and conditions. If you want to get out of those added packages(sports) you will need to pay extra as well.
All this without the consent of the customer. I lost all my opportunity to opt out of the added package at the time of price rise with no e mail notification sent to me. Yes I get all other promo emails not the price rise email. Spend more than 1 hour over the customer services and the answer is terms and conditions. So no point in ringing and wasting time. If you can't find any other supplier only then you should even think about BIG TROUBLE. Good luck to all
London BT  
DO NOT TAKE THIS BROADBAND, customer service is useless a lot of lias, is not working at all even on Facebook you can't go ...they charging for nothing...at the phone to cancel your contract they are saying you have to pay £30 for one month and £47 the fee and after they are charging £145 ...they are not serious at all...really bad customer service and experience...I fell so bad because of them...they see people like me how doesn't speak English and they trading to rope them ...be careful

Colchester BT  
BT are dishonest and made us agree to an 18 month contract without telling us that it was 18 months. They hide this information in order to tie people in. Our tenancy was only 12 months so we had to pay a large cancellation fee(almost £200!). Their customer service are also difficult to deal with. I had no problem with the broadband itself, but it is dishonest to actively try to trick people into signing an 18 month contract, especially elderly or vulnerable people. A company which is not to be trusted.

Dundee BT  
18 month contract with BT, first few months everything was ok, good speed and reliability, then things deteriorated rapidly. Speed dropped and is now half of what I was promised, connection drops out constantly. I have complained on several occasions and was advised to reset the router on a weekly basis, reset it once but then for some reason it wouldn't reset again. I am now in the process of switching provider and am hoping for an improvement but one thing is for sure, I won't be returning to BT.

Ashton under Lyne BT  
I am so disappointed with BT, I had no broadband connection for a week I contacted them and this was resolved, however was told I won’t be charged for the times I had no broadband, however the bill came with full amount which I had to pay. I contacted them online and was told we are going to refund you and you will get an email within 3-4 hours. I waited all day no email came. Decided to contact them again today and was being tossed around different agents and for 50 minutes I got no help. Was patient bough to remain connected and waited for them but they wasted close to an hour of my time with no help at all. So this means am going to pay for the times I had no connection and it’s always very slow seems they also switch it off at night i don’t know. Am glad my contract is ending soon, so.

I went from EE to BT as you are supposed go be able to get fast fibre broadband in every room. Yes you can if you buy into extra discs for every room. £10 extra for each one per month. Rubbish coverage. Can't wait for my contract to finish. Don't do it.

Why is it BT continually get it wrong. Very simple these shysters increased the price of my BT without my knowledge or consent. Spoke to them and they hung up. Spoke to them and they said we sent an email (didn't get as it was in spam) said your in contract and that's it. How do these lick spittles ever expect to keep me as a customer when they literally robbed me.

Omagh BT  
Broadband went dow. Engineer appointment with a 5 hr window. Traveled 220ml, 5hr round trip and waited. When no show contacted BT was told engineer was on his way. Again no show. Found out that engineer had phoned in sick that morning. It appears then the I was deliberately deceived ie I was lied to. 2 further deadlines set by BT for fixing the problem pass with still no broadband. No update and no contact from BT. Me, I have wasted a further >2hrs on live chat to be told everything will be resolved soon
Unacceptable service delivery, unacceptable customer service. But worse is the deception, being lied to
BT - another customer gone, never to return - I promise!!

Absolutely abysmal service and threats for BT

Have been with BT for may years was out of contract and looked around and found I was paying about twice as much with BT as I could get with other providers. Contacted BT and asked if they could give me a better deal which they said they could they offered a couple of pounds off not the £35 need to be competitive. Asked for a PAC code but due to technical problems they could not give one. This went on for a couple of weeks but eventual got my PAC code and left B. They did however finally offer me a deal which was £1.00 more expensive than the company I transferred to. But there was no way I was going to stay with them after the way I had been treated. Was sent a final bill which I paid and have now spent a further month receiving threatening emails from BT. Saying they would be sending round the bailiffs and destroying my credit rating if I did not pay. This despite me having raised a complaint with them. Absolutely abysmal service will never ever go back to them.

BT= BIG TROUBLE
BT is the worst company I have met so far. I have been with BT since January and since the beginning, I have told to BT to make sure if they can provide the service they were offering because I would need it. They kept saying that absolutely they could provide me and guarantee me a specific speed. Well, since January I complained as they never ever provided me with that speed that they said they would and that I was paying for. I spent so many hours to try to help them in solving the problems and having engineerings in and out, for absolutely nothing! Plus, they kept saying they would call me and they would not. I normally do not write reviews but this I really had.

BT the worst ever in service, price, and communication.

There has been a major issue with our broadband we have been without Broadband since 19th July, tried to update to a BT Plus customer on the 22nd July to upgrade to fibre. 10 days later we still have no broadband and I have been told this morning that our upgrade order has not been accepted yet due being stuck in their system and wont be connected at the earliest on the 1st of August, when we might get our broadband connection back. BT blame their supplier - meanwhile we the customer have to suffer!! it seems incredible that in the modern world that we live why they cant sort this problem out! The BT Mini hub supplied as temporary fix is practically useless. I will definitely be looking elsewhere after this distressing and frustrating experience!!!

Somerset BT  
I've been a BT Broadband customer for 13years now, the fast its been is 210Kbps or 0.21Mbps. The longest I've had in without breaking down is 6 months, the engineers do their best to fix the line. It's just BT who will not and never will update the line, I have been told I'll never get fibre superfast broadband. Because of where I live, they have never been helpful about my situation...

loved BT from the first broadband I had.
Then the cost sky rocketed and 8 times out of ten the speed was not what I was supposed to get.Sky have given to me the same speed and the cost has almost halved
When BT say they can guarantee super fast broadband surely lower speeds should be as good

Look no further, the worst "ISP" in the WORLD is here!!!
300 meters from exchange, they could only provide 12mb download (most of the time is 3) and "not guaranteed" upload
But it never went totally down for more than an hour, can't find other good thing to say :)
Customer support...call them if you want training in being a BT engineer
Got a few months left with them, cant wait to get rid of having to pay a bill for that useless broadband connection.

Don't bother paying for anything more than their standard broadband. If you expect superfast fibre, don't hold your breath. My download speeds got slower and slower until I was getting between 2Mbps and 7Mbps and constantly got interrupted. I pay £50 per month for superfast fibre and it is an absolute waste of money. An engineer has already been out, it was not fixed, then a second engineer who didn't arrive and then a third appointment was made. I am moving on to another provider as enough is enough. What a waste of money and time.

Pontyclun BT  
I hadn't had broadband before and had heard that since BT controlled all the cabling that their service would be best. How wrong.
To start with things looked good. An engineer turned up on day arranged and installed line. He said there might be teething problems and to get in touch if so.

I did . I needed the link for my work and it is vital I have live connection when I broadcast. The link kept dropping out. I raised query.

An engineer was arranged to come out (this took far more time and trouble than I can relay here).
I realised I would be at a wedding and called help line to rearrange (again more time and faff than I can relay) I was told that was sorted.

Then while away I was texted to say an engineer would call on the OLD date - would I be in or did I want to cancel (my only option in the circumstances was to cancel!) then - as I suspected, no engineer turned up on new day.
I had raised complaint and a complaints person rang me to check out if line was now working. This was exactly as I was communicating via the awful chat line system (see below) with another so callled 'helper' to try and establish if and when an engineer would call. The complaints person said they'd ring back . The help line person asked if I wanted an engineer to call. I explained that one was due to be visiting but emphasised YES PLEASE. The operative terminated the on line call without sorting.

I now have a complaint on top of a complaint on top of a complaint - The service IS AWFUL.

Years ago I used to work in project management for Comms . I can honestly say that service levels have gone down the pan and customer service is not fit for purpose. Out-sourcing to a foreign country in a completely different time zone and in a completely diferent language, different culture, different etiquette, is a HUGE mistake. No axe to grind with the individual helpline people on the other end: Its not their fault. The model is wrong. The system is broken. I am going to see about cancelling and going elsewhere. Except i suspect more grief and heartache awaits en route. This is no way to live a life

Gloucestershire UK BT  
Absolutely disgusting customer service. My dealings with BT have inspired me to cut all cables to my property, live in my shed and create some sort of nomadic existence for myself. On the plus side.. if you complain enough they will give you refund after refund. I’ve now got enough credit with BT to retire and move to the Bahamas if the shed gets a bit cold in the winter. USE SOMEONE ELSE.
Kent BT  
I read the reviews. It’ll be different for me I thought. Let’s try BT. What a mistake. Left Sky for BT business on Superfast Fibre.
Day: 1 No phone or broadband connection. Call engineer to fix, sorted later that day.
Day 2-4: No problems, great router.
Day 5: BT inform us we are leaving them in 2 weeks but we can change our mind and stay.
Day 6: BT terminate our service and give our telephone number back to Sky. Business now in turmoil - no receptionist, no online access. Numerous telephone calls to BT. Can’t find our number, join the complaints queue, no action being taken as we aren’t their customer any more. So much for the 2 year contract.
Day 7: Give us our neighbour’s telephone number.
Days 8-14: BT place 4 new orders, none of them right.
Day 15: Today. We have our telephone number back but broadband now cut off.

We have lost £1000s in business over the last 2 weeks, not to mention face/reputation. I am absolutely livid with them.
For God’s sake, for your sake, don’t go with BT, they aren’t fit for purpose.

Reading BT  
Worst broad band and customer support.

Have been receiving 2-5 mbps since last whole week and what bt have done so far is sent me rj11 cable as fix.

During there test they confirmed that the speed from bt box to my router is 69 mbps but from my router to pc 1-5 mbps through ethernet which they don't guarantee.

So they expect customer to sit on there router and suck the speed and transfer through telepathy because all there claims are just up to the router. And after that they dont give any guarantees that you will receive the same speed to your devices.

First they tried to exempt themselves by saying sir you might be using wifi which i wasn't then they oh our speed guarantee is up to the router.

On ther adverts of stay fast guarantees speed consistently but all there advergs are scam and full of lies.

On top of that when you ask them that you are 2 mb they ask for 7 months old email evidence that what you guaranteed speed.

These guys are proper scammers who are only punctual in deducting there direct debit and when it comes to customer support all they donis restart your router and send you cheap cables and max 5 days worth of broken days credit.

Horrible post sales customer support.

Every year there is apain.. Last three months twice the services have crashed and they are busy in finding loopholes.

It's a simple effing transacrion. I will pay you money you provise me services. But they believe in making customer life a living hell.

Lies excuses and loopholes. Thats what there belive is and ripping customer.

Go to any other provider exept bt. My honest opinion

Do NOT use BT, there inability to conduct a home move order and successfully complete is astonishing! An active line that gave previous tenants internet and phone at fibre speed seems impossible for BT to takeover? They promised a new line at no cost then cancelled that order too, I’ve been over a month waiting and 8 cancellations. They promise to call you back but not once have I had a callback I have always had to call them. The latest call took over an hour with no change on the order.

I would highly recommend you look elsewhere, the perceived reliability of BT is unfounded and it is not worth your time and effort. Pay more for someone else if you must, just don’t trust them with anything.

Devon BT  
Please stay away from BT. Awful company. Lost my order twice, spent hours on the phone trying to sort it out. Lied to on several occasions. Phoned to cancel within the cooling off period as I was very annoyed. Told by customer services that as a gesture of goodwill my contract would be reduced to 12 months from 18. After 11 months, I phone to cancel and apparently there is no record of this conversation in my notes or on my file. I have 'superfast' broadband at 13mbps (the lowest speed guaranteed in my contract) - my previous provider was standard fibre which was faster. One positive is that it has been pretty reliable.

I will never touch BT again and will tell everyone I know not to either.

Been with bt for 6 month and had problems with speeds and drop outs constantly, after numerous amounts of engineers and phone calls they have finally sorted the speed out but the constant drop outs make this pointless. After deciding enough is enough I rang them to terminate my contract due to them failing to provide, I got told it would cost £300 by the rudest woman I've ever spoke to, I've now took the situation further.

Appalling Customer Service; 'take the money and run attitude'.
Poor email host with no support whatever. SHOCKINGLY SLOW SPEED.
Terrible Overseas polite but brainless helpdesk IF you can even contact BT!
Everything that is wrong with Globalisation but with nice shiny 'we are family, love puppies and care about YOU' Advertising campaigns to keep sucking us in!

Lincolnshire BT  
Absolutely terrible provider. Have run tests over 30 days and I have not received above 33mb but pay for 64mb. 1 minute it is fine and the next it will slow down to below 1mb at times. I 100% will be contacting the ombudsman to have the contract contested.

BT are a disgrace to the British telecommunications industry.

I recently discovered that I was paying £40 a month for an ADSL line. On a separate bill I was being charged £240 a year for the line rental.

Meanwhile my internet connection kept dropping off, so I decided to take the plunge an upgrade to BT's Superfast Fibre.

You would think that as an exiting customer with a working BT landline that might be a simple enough process. Ring up, choose a package, pay for it?
You must be joking.

I was on the phone to BT for a total of 99 minutes that day.
After some discussion as to what I wanted and selecting the package and agreeing the price (£39.99 a month) I was told by the salesman that because I had just consolidated two accounts he couldn't process the order for 48 hours. We arranged a time 2 days later when he would call me to process the order. Needless to say he didn't call and after sending him an email a colleague of his rang.
The colleague then told me that he needed to transfer me to a different department as I was a business customer. I then began the whole process again with a woman who told me that the price offered to me (and which I could see online)was only available to new customers. So for being a BT customer for 33 years I have to pay more.
Eventually when I told her that I was not prepared to pay £50 a month and had already agreed £39.99 she said that she would process the order at that price.
Then she told me that there was a problem processing the order; she needed to place it with the "back room team" who were not available as it was a Saturday.
I was told that they would e-mail me confirmation of the order no earlier than Monday of the following week.
By Wednesday I had heard nothing so I rung BT and had two calls each over 40 minutes. Having again agreed the package and the price I was put on hold. Minutes passed and whilst idling on the phone I started looking at other providers and discovered that Zen offered a faster fibre bb at the same price with a guarantee of no increase at the end of the contract.
So when the BT salesman finally returned to me to say that he was ready to place the order, I told him that I was sorry but had had enough of BT and would be going elsewhere. No order was placed and I bid BT farewell - or so I thought.
After placing the order with Zen I was told by them that there was an open order on my line. That was a week ago. Since then I've been batted back and forth between Zen and BT - the former saying they can't process my order because of the open order on the line, BT denying that any such order exists.

Last week, in one such call, I was transferred to Kevin in the Loyalty Section of BT who told me that he was able to offer me the same package at £29.99.
I told him that it was too late for that, I'd had my fill of BT.

I've had several conversations with BT over the last few days all insisting there is no impediment on the line that would stop the transfer.

Meanwhile I have had a letter and an email from BT thanking me advising me that my new fibre broadband is on its way from them. When I ring to ask what these messages are about, they say it's just a computer generated letter, and again swear blind that no order exists.

It's impossible to find out who is at fault here, but I can see no reason why Zen would be giving me false information, whereas I am getting every indication from BT that they are frustrating the process of transfer as best they can.

I haven't gone into the detail of some of the utter stupidity of what they are telling me, the fact that you can never speak to the same person twice, the fact that they cannot transfer calls internally, that they cannot send you an email on an address that can be replied to; the fact they they sign emails with a name that is not in fact their name (eg. Mike Lincoln is Mike who works in Lincoln). All of this designed to make sure that you can never get back to the person who had assured you that they were on your case.

Just a horrible sick joke of a company.
