    I cannot give any stars to BT, I have been with BT well over 40 years and I have seen the service from BT deteriorate. When I first purchased the super fast Broadband I was getting speeds of 74mbs but now I am lucky if I get the guaranteed speed of 36mbs but the WOW in this I can if I am lucky get a max of 42mbs, what's that all about?. if you look at the value of this service that I am paying for then I am paying twice as much for just on half the speed from my original contract. I have raised this issue with BT on a number of occasions just for it to fall on deaf ears. And another big bug bearer is that they have installed the main box in my bathroom where this high moister level?
    I am looking at an alternative supplier.

    BT reuse to let me leave without paying the rest of my contract fees despite not giving me the service I signed up for. To leave I must pay £197. I have a ADSL Internet connection which, despite ridiculously slow upload and download speeds which I tolerate, continually loses connection and displays the dreaded ‘yellow light’ on my router signalling a loss of service, REPEATEDLY, 10-20 times a day!! BT offered many ‘workaround’ fixes, free phone data, new routers (x3), engineer visits etc. After my need for a better connection became essential due to large file upload/download for work, up to 6GB+, I decided to leave BT and join Virgin Media which was cheaper and has impressively fast fibre broadband in my area. BT then claim, what for it, that my loss of Internet connection isn’t technically a ‘drop’ in service and happens simply because the accompanying landline has a fault on it!! I explained, it doesn’t matter what or where the source or location of the problem is, all that matters is I’m not receiving the service I should be. To which they respond with their final word on the matter (after long debates and endless transferring from department to department) that my Internet has only ever ‘dropped’ connection twice during the last year and has always been ‘provided’ otherwise and it’s the problem with my landline that causes the problem with the Internet connection at my end, and therefor, because they’ve continued to provide broadband at the speed contractually agreed upon from their end, I am not free to leave without paying the rest of my contract!! Can you believe it!! I said it doesn’t matter what you provide at your end, what matters is what I receive at my end, AND I RECEIVE REPEATED DROPS IN SERVICE!!! I DO NOT CARE WHAT PART OF YOUR SERVICE/NETWORK IS BROKEN, I DO NOT RECEIVE THE SERVICE I PAY FOR AND I WANT TO LEAVE WITHOUT BEING CHARGED £197 TO DO SO!!
    BT refuse to budge so I must pay £197 to leave a broadband contract that is regularly interrupted by a fault on the accompanying landline. What can I say except, BT, shame on you, after my years of loyalty, you treat me like this, SHAME ON YOU!!

    BT's service is appalling to the point of being fraudulent. I have had 9 visits by incompetent workmen who in most cases could not complete the work they came to do. I have also had 2 appointments cancelled without any notification. It's now 4 months since I started the contract and I still do not have the full service I paid for. Customer service is unhelpful and do not care if your installation is working but are only concerned with your payments. I have been lied to about the cost of the service and given incorrect information about future increases. I believe they are knowingly defrauding elderly users such as myself and I will be reporting BT to Ofcom.

    Joined only 4 months ago.
    For 1st 20 days of joining speed was great, then nothing though new installation of fibre plus.
    Then sent me what they called a 'techy' who told me it was because my broadband 'bounces' on my walls, but if I pay more my services 'might' get better.
    In other words blackmail me to pay more to stop problems.
    I then knew I had to leave them.
    They really should be fined.
    Found BT insulting.
    Obviously badly managed.

    My advice is not to commit to 2 year deals because they will screw you at the end if you cancel early, even with a house move.

    This is what i have just sent to BT, the woman on the phone yesterday was horrible, actually shouting at me in the phone , she was incredibly number is 07966045386
    I can not believe what you have done, i am already being treated for stress and acute depresion
    Yesterday you cut off my broadband
    I now have no tv
    I can not use my phone

    My son works from home and you have stopped him from working

    2 weeks ago i phoned to talk about my bill
    I tealised i was still paying for a landline package of unlimited calls etc
    I had stated and phoned numerous times about the fact i had no land phone , i didnt want a phone but yet you continued billing me for 2 years.
    The man on the phone said the best ge could do was refund me £60
    And send me a new hub, i still had a bill outstanding and told him my house was going to auction and i woukd clear my bill very soon
    Yesterday i phoned to clear my bill , the lady said my wifi was still open but about to be closed down, i had no onowledge of this , only aeare i had to change my hub over which i did yesterday.
    I had not been refunded the £60 and my bill had not changed, i paid all outstanding bill of over £100
    The lady then put me through to someone else who told me i had been cut off and i would have to open a new account
    I have been with you for over 35 years, and now you have caused me to be very ill, and for my son not to be able to work, without even contacting me
    I am on the vulnerable list which you should have been aware of
    What you have done has totally destroyed me, i can not carry on with no wifi for 2 weeks
    I have had to come down the road to send this message
    Help ?


    We will see what response i get
    I have been with BT for 37 years !
    I have never known anything like it !!

    No one in the world should be left with no communication!!

    No warning, no contact from them, NO !!

    They just sent me a brand new hub, to set up and then cut my wifi completely

    And they are saying 2 weeks minimum.

    What i do not understand is i have a brand new hub in place , surely its not that hard to reconnect me !!???

    Can't fault the service. Was due initially to have the broadband connect 4 weeks after purchase however after the first visit in week one Open Reach could not locate the 'in' to my property and decided that some ground work would need to be done (digging up a bit of path). This pushed my go live date back by a further 4 weeks which would leave me without a connection for 4 weeks as I'd terminated my contract with Virgin. Spoke with BT who immediately dispatched a 4G router to cover the down time. Following week Open Reach dug up the path and did the necessary ground work - spoke with BT again who then brought forward my go live date to the original agreed date. Excellent service all round.

    On moving to BT, my elderly, hard-of-hearing grandparent intended to retain our phone number, but this did not happen (whether through misunderstanding or miscommunication). We were only made aware of this months later when our original number was deprecated by our previous provider, and we contacted BT to inquire what was happening. We're now outside of the period BT would allow us to reclaim our original number.

    The problem is that BT did NOT notify us of the change of phone number. Had they done so, we would have been able to promptly rectify whatever issue led to not retaining our original number, and we would have been able to reclaim our original number within the allowed time period.

    The agents I've spoken to have been nothing but helpful, I cannot fault them and I understand there's nothing further they can do to help, but the failings of BT's processes have resulted in an easily avoidable issue and inconvenienced my elderly grandparent.

    WHAT AN AWFUL AWFUL SERVICE. A BT engineer came to our house a week ago to set up the internet and left without connecting us for some line problem. He gave us no idea on when it would be resolved. Endless calls with BT to organise for another engineer to come today and they didn't show up. I thought it was an essential service what they provide????

    I'm absolutely disgusted with BT. My mother whos in her 80s switched from EE to BT in what she was told would be a straightforward process taking a couple of weeks. 3 months on and she still hasn't got broadband. This is despite 7 visits from a number of incompetent workmen who in most cases did not have the skill or equiptment to complete the work the came to do. BT are still charging her and it's taking over 45mins to reach BT to complain. BTs fraudulent abuse is nothing short of criminal.

    They are the worst company i have ever had to deal with. Dont let their PR fool you, their systems seem designed to draw your custom and then take whatever they can with subversive distracting and downright dishonest practice. I am now onto my seventh account number. They even repeatedly rebuffed my request to escalate my complaint and instead advised me on what OFCOM would conclude. I am outraged and remain so since i first engaged with them in November 2020. I am patient and diligent, 20 hours of phone calls failed to resolve it.

    BT don’t deserve any stars but I couldn’t write this review without putting one.

    Around 2 months ago I called them 3 times as my hub kept timing out. As it was 11 years old I was told I would need a new one so a text was sent telling me my hub had been dispatched. It didn’t arrive so I went through this process 3 times after which they admitted they had never really sent my hubs!!!!

    I was passed from pillar to post and ended up with a man who told me I was on an old service and could get a much better one for half price which would have been 25.00 for the phone and broadband. I agreed to be passed to the person who could set this up for me. He told me the service would be 67.00 and that I would need to pay 9.00 for the delivery of a new hub when it had previously been free.

    I couldn’t believe the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing and they weren’t even prepared to send me the hub free of charge for previous poor service. Needless to say I’ve left them and am with Vodafone now. They are charging me 30.00 and I have a better service.

    When I cancelled I was advised by what I think is the retention team to either send the old hub back or bin it as it was 11 years old, didn’t work and was therefore no good. Well I binned it and today I got an envelope with a bag to return the hub in and an email telling me to return it or I would be charged 43.00.

    I rang and complained telling the man on the phone I had put the old hub in the bin as advised by them and he said, ‘well you’ll just have to pay 43.00 then I didn’t advise you.’ I challenged this telling him he represents BT. I then asked to speak to a manager but was denied this until he had found my account. He was very sarcastic and he asked me how much I paid and what date my last payment was. My bill differed each month so I gave an average and as I couldn’t give the exact date of my last payment he happily told me I couldn’t speak to a a manager. They had always dealt with me before. There are other questions they can ask.

    What’s sad is I am 56 years old and have been a BT customer all my adult life. Their service used to be brilliant which is what kept me all these years. Ive never known a company’s service to go down so much.

    New customer, 1st 14 days brilliant but now dropping all the time, coming back when I call them which I have to do everyday.
    Why are they advertising if their current systems cannot cope with current flow?
    Surprisingly I was told by their customer services its my fault because I use alexa yes, so with BT one cannot use WiFi devices! Actually cannot use email, internet, ...
    No services but still cashing the money.
    All congested yet they still chose to float their cables in trees, wind and rain... oh dear it is still extremely slow when dry and sunny
    It is so obvious ombudsmen not doing their work!

    I would give 0 stars if I could! I Have never dealt with a worse company. Iv been waiting 8 weeks for my broadband to be installed and set up! Iv been changed money for a service that I havnt got! Everyone I have spoke to on the phone either passes me to another colleague or a different department! I wouldn’t recommended this company at all. Honestly awful how is 8 weeks for broadband acceptable to someone and payment taken!!

    We were due to have services installed at the property, with the only appointment window options being 8-1 or 1-6pm. Incredibly inconvenient with school dropoff/pickup, but can't be helped so we made many arrangements to accommodate. They bombarded me with emails and texts telling me to make sure I was in. And on the morning giving the name of the engineer and his mobile number. But nothing happened. No-one turned up, no-one answered my texts or calls. And then when I spent almost an hour on the phone I was told "it might have been a resources or time issue", and once the engineer submitted his notes that evening they would come back to me to arrange a new appointment. They did not. I then spent over an hour on the phone, through a range of departments and 4 different people, with one gem being "we don't want to keep passing you around on hold, that would be a bit of a wind-up"... and then proceeding to put me onto some different kind of caller queue that I never came off. Utterly unbelievable - the most atrocious organisation of services I have ever experienced, with what apparently was an approach of palming me off on hold/new caller queues as they couldn't/wouldn't deal with the problem themselves (call-time targets to hit??). I am completely understanding of operators trying to do their best job. But clearly the policies and systems in place with BT customer service are dysfunctional.

    Speeds were no problem but signal to my sky meant i could not watch Disney and there advive was to drill through my wall into the cupboard where there box was and put up a shelf in my living room so there box could be closer.. eh no.. even though there box is only 5 foot away from the sky box behind a plasterboard wall. Also signal to phones would drop out too, then they said too many devices must be the issue.. 1 sky box 2 phones and 1 tablet, so i changed to sky internet and all these problems are now solved and have never returned.

    I had BT for many years. It used to be the best service, in the past 5 years it declined a lot, only the price didn't. The fiber managed to be worse than normal! The instability for a central London area was insane. I was also charged for something I did not own and when i tried to dispute they reported and made it default after only a couple of months in my credit report. They blackmailed me to pay even more extra fees to have my default removed and when I paid they refused to remove. BT quality is awful nowadays, overpriced and they act in bad faith so stay clear, these days there are many other amazing companies offering the same service. I'm now very happy with NowTV for Broadband owned by sky despite of not even need a TV package.

    Absolute joke of a company waited in for fibre installation lost a days pay! They work with open reach when they turned up didn’t provide the lads with the correct cable fit the job and seems to be a shortage of this cable... I’m cancelling my contract and claiming for lost earnings. BT get shut of open reach and sort your equipment out

    Unfortunately I get my phone, tv and broadband with BT , after couple of weeks no tv, failed call-backs, when I bought the package for £24.99 for 18 months, 3 months later it has risen, constant crashing, going offline, I was offered 'fast broadband' 3-10mbps its what I got offered and told by BT I cant watch TV or call anyone, same with tv I cant go online I only joined end of Jan 2021, its been painful bad experience. I also for my website upload videos to YouTube for my site, it used to take 20mins average on old supplier, BT it's up to 24 hours which means I have to sit with no tv or phone. I recently learned there was a faster broadband connection when I was told there wasn't I recently took the upgrade and today (2nd May) BT have now cancelled that upgrade "due to technical issues", now I'm back to square one same response 2we're offering what you bought" . Unfortunately I have another 2 years of pain with BT before I can finally leave them, DO NOT GO TO BT*******

    p.s/ Broadband speed and reliability I would give zero stars rather than 1 star I gave above

    Only been with BT for one month and it's been the worst experience having to deal with their incompetence.

    We had to settle for ADSL initially as fibre wasn't available even though the cabinet supported it due to limited capacity. We had to wait nearly 3 weeks for an OpenReach engineer because BT claimed that there wasn't a line going into the property even though the previous occupants had Fibre 2 with BT. Unsurprisingly, the engineer informed us that there was already a line going into the property.

    In the interim, we were mis-sold their Halo Hub which should have got us online until the broadband was activated however the connection was unreliable due to EE's coverage in our area and consistently dropped out. We asked to cancel it but were told that we'd have to cancel the whole order and risk another 3 week wait for the OpenReach engineer. They advised to wait until the order had completed before cancelling. When we finally got online, we were told that we couldn't cancel the Halo as we were past our cool-off period even though we'd specifically asked for them to make a note when we originally requested the cancellation.

    Fibre 2 is now available to us however they claim that we can only upgrade to Fibre 1, or Fibre 2 with Halo for an inflated cost because we're currently in contract even though Fibre 2 is available to new customers for a reduced cost.

    We raised a complaint and were told that we'd get a call-back on 2 occasions but were never contacted. BT claims that complaints are handled by a 3rd party who are not employed by BT so they have no control of when they get in touch.

    We're still no closer to receiving the service we require from BT, nor do we have any confidence that we'll ever receive it.

    I joined BT in March and to say i'm unimpressed is an understatement! we're the 27th April and they've managed to bill me nearly £100 in that time, they've INCREASED my monthly plan (something to do with government increase)I live in a 2 bedroom flat and the WIFI only works in the front bedroom!!!!!

    Dreadful service and installation. Avoid at all costs. Agreed a date for installation and the engineer visited and then left without doing anything. Called the engineers mobile and he did not answer. Existing broadband was turned off. Called BT to find out what was happening. 40 minute wait on telephone to speak to someone who said they would call back with an answer. They did not call back. Another 40 minute wait to speak to someone. They said that it would be another two weeks before an engineer could visit. Only resolution to get broadband connection was they would post a dongle. Will believe it when I see it. Don't use BT it is dreadful

    The BT service is so unreliable. I work from home like a lot of people currently and every day the service drops off. There is constantly an engineer in the road. The option of watching a movie via Netflix is a vague memory as it stops at least 5 times per programme, my husband spends half his time checking the speed and we are yet to receive the promised refund for any poor service. We have upgraded so many times to try and get a better service and are currently on fibre halo 2 over £65 per month and have had nothing but rubbish service for the duration. BT are a joke, it obviously stands for brilliantly terrible! They are a disgrace!

    Wow I have just read some of these reviews and agree with all the negative ones! Just wish I read them before we decide to switch supplier. The pattern is the same that everyone below has reported - they miss the switch date and blame Openreach (when the same socket has worked with our previous supplier for years). We’ve spoken to managers, we’ve been promised compensation (£25 is the max you’ll get). I’d advise anyone: avoid BT, plusnet and EE (all the same company). We are six days into our contract, no internet, no sign of a contractor which we have been repeatedly promised for days). I’ll be cancelling come Monday!

    DONT PICK BT FOR ANYTHING

    I was conned into joing BT via a black Friday deal I saw online. This was not the case and they started to charge me £45 a month instead of £30. They started charging this bogus amount once you are out of the grace period, meaning if you want to leave by the time you realise they are charging you £45 instead of £30 you will have to pay an extortionate amount in cancellation fees. They are currently charging me £316.93 to leave this con of theirs. My advice would be to stay away from BT, any offers they put are clearly lies and far from the truth. I have been forced to stay in contract with these cons. I would like to share my experience so others would not fall for the same trap

    Really really bad company. Poor service and extremely poor customer service. When they make mistakes (and pretty huge ones at that), they refuse to accept responsibility. We moved our phone & internet to them on the promise of cheap broadband and phone. We asked to keep our phone number of 20 years. They agreed.

    When the move took place they disconnected our phone number and gave it away. They insisted that they no longer supported landlines and that we had to have a new digital number. This is not what they promised, so we left.

    Efforts to restore our number with our new provider have been thwarted at every turn by BT out of sheer spite. Their representatives accept no responsibility whatever and had the audacity to blame us for their error. When that was getting them nowhere they then blamed Openreach. Openreach have no responsibility for phone numbers at all.

    Bad bad bad company. Could not care less. I wish that I could block all their phone numbers just to give them a taste of their own medicine.

    Current download speed is 1.8Mb, upload is 0.3Mb. Barely good enough!

    Terrible company. We were lured with promises of faster broadband. More reliable service. Keeping our existing phone number. ALL LIES. Service was erratic and unreliable. If we wanted internet service in all areas of our home then BT expected us to pay more.

    As for our telephone line, they disconnected that without warning, gave our telephone number away and denied ever agreeing to provide a telephone service.

    Doesn’t BT stand for British Telecom? Maybe it’s British Teletubbies, it was explain your childish and irresponsible behaviour.

    I have been a BT customer for many years. Firstly they never informed me my broadband contract was up and secondly they would not let me sign up to one of their deals because I am a current customer. Just signed up with Vodafone £24 p/m.
    ONLY stayed with BT previously because I had a BT email. Poor customer loyalty and money grabbing gits.

    The worst "communications" company ever. Shop elsewhere don't even consider for one second. Not one person I have ever spoke to about BT has anything good to say.
