    They cannot even successfully deliver their package to your address!!! I booked Halo 3 on July 9th, but I never received it from that day. Royal Mail said that my address is wrong because BT gave them wrong address. I contacted BT's customer support by phone nearly twenty times, everyone said he can help me, but finally, they didn't correctly change my address. It's supprizing that they continuely make the same mistake so many times. It looks that they realy doesn't care about their client. I've had enough with BT. Never use it again!

    I have been with BT business for almost a year and that is a year too long. I had problems with BT for about three months before I was even signed up. When they eventually installed my broadband they did not connect the line at the exchange, so the only broadband I was getting was either through a BT hotspot or the 4G dongle. After hours on the phone and online chat, they discovered their mistake but all the offered for being 8 months without proper broadband was £25 off my bill.
    I will be leaving BT as soon as my contrack expires and not a single day later.

    Absolutely atrocious service.
    Our internet has been offline for about a month. On the best of days we get a download speed of 1MB/s and upload speed of 0.3MB/s. We were promised at least 1.5MB/s. We are paying a ridiculous amount for our broadband. It’s ridiculous how we can be charged the same amount as someone who gets fibre optic with a broadband speed > 30 MB/s, so x30 more than what we get.
    Openreach have been attempting to fix our internet for about 3 weeks, but it is still not working. Our poles have not had any service/maintenance since 2001 according to one of their engineers.
    They have offered compensation of £8 per day until our internet is back up and running. This might cover the cost of the monthly broadband fee… but what about all other services we pay for that require WiFi, such as Netflix, Amazon prime, Alexa, etc?
    I believe that the government were targeting for the whole of the UK to get a minimum broadband speed of 10MB/s to all homes by 2020. Clearly they have failed to keep to this promise. To make things worse, there doesn’t seem to be any urgency or reassurance that they are actually trying to achieve that target anytime soon. They dismiss any possibility of fibre optic to our area.
    It’s such a shame that there are no other providers that we can turn to, otherwise we would have years ago.
    If you are thinking of using BT as your main provider, I urge you to do some research and check other providers first - I believe Virgin have their own boxes therefore they can offer a different internet line to your home.

    Worst company I have ever dealt with.

    I had an issue with my broadband that kept dropping up to 7 times a day and then 5Mbps speeds. Me and my partner both work at home and found this impossible.
    However BT could only send us engineers. After 10 engineer visits and 12 hours of calls to and from BT the outcome was to leave free of charge however no compensation was applied. My stress levels dealing with this company has been more than ever in my life to the point where I had sleepless nights worrying about the integrity of my job but BT weren’t having none of it.

    Engineer didn't show up for the activation. They sent me his number in the morning to contact him - he didn't reply to calls nor txt. Supposed to come between 8-1. Then was contacted by the company that arranges the engineer's visits to say that he will come round. - waited til 6pm - nothing. No response to txt nor calls. Then BT called in the evening saying the need to rearrange the appointment. Not so much an issue if you don't work but I have to take another day off work and being self employed it's loss of earnings.

    Very bad customer service.
    BT broadband sales did the credit check and all then letting me know that the broadband installation at my house will be done after three months. It is ridiculous. Complete waste of time

    Absolutely amazing for many many years, the introduction of BT Fibre was a game changer download speeds were very fast after the fact.

    Please avoid.
    My second experience with BT after 4 years. Nothing has changed, they just advertise better. We pay £30 pm to have a 4mb speed. We have not gone over 10 mb since we started the contract 2 months ago.
    Called support, they said we will get a 4G hub to help with the connexion - never came. Apparently you have to pay for accessories to get the most basic service that you were already paying for....? what?! no thanks.
    engineers have come out twice and both times the conclusion was: the cable is eroded. We asked for it to be changed, they refused and said, we'll try something with the box outside. Obviously, nothing has happened and we are now waiting for the 3rd round of engineer, while still paying for a service that does not work. Super.

    Please avoid. Get Virgin, it's just as bad.
