    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.

    was waiting almost 4 months for installation.In the beginning of March phone line has been connected.Today engineer supposed to finish work but he said I can't have full fibre internet even though contract has been signed for it.Instead I have been offered to sign contract for much slower Internet for the same price.But internet would be ready after 1-2 weeks.Bt is blaming me for that because I supposed to check if I can have specific cables in my building.How could I know I have to check this?They had 4 months for telling me this.Now I have been left without internet and can't go back to my previous provider unless I will pay double.So if you think to switch to BT you may end it up without internet at all.

    Shocking Service as usual from BT. Ordered broadband fibre in December - Installation to the street was completed but due to Covid could not install in the house - and quite right too I would say, BUT advised of an appointment at the end of March to complete the installation, text to confirm the times - but no one pitched up for the appointment. 30 min on hold to find out whats up, but I get told by the operator to hold while she checks. The call is cut off, no return call, no news. SO I call back - I need to set up a new appointment online - Okay I do so. Next appointment - guess what no one turns up, no news. What a joke - unprofessional and absolutely useless as a company.

    Had broadband with ee/orange for 10yrs+ never had an issue, at contract renewal Feb 20 advised by ee that it was switching to improved BT router .....13 months later, 12+ engineer visits last year, 9 visits this year (2 last week) broadband keeps dropping connection and running at half minimum speed guarantee on a good day...dropped connection 12 times in last hour, spoke to them again tonight, another engineer due in 2 days. Stayfast guarantee is useless, they reset it after every engineers visit so they never have to credit you....Customer Service people are good just a pity the service is so appallingly bad....internet has dropped connection twice whilst typing this review....BT...Bleeding Trouble !!

    Very happy since switching from Virginmedia. Very flexible landline deal - I switched from a 700 free minutes on the landline to a second BT sim including 2GB data as wasn't using the landline allowance with a very efficient phone call.

    Description:28/3/2021 - 0657 BEWARE OF VIRGIN MEDIA CONTRACT LOOPHOLES WHEN ENDING THEIR CONTRACT!

    The fact that virgin media is exceptional in refusing to allow new providers to initate contract termination when transferring to a new landline/broadband provider is poor customer service. It is clearly just intended to grab a few more months subscription from customers who are unaware of this loophole but bound by a contract which is counter-intuitive and underhand. BT warn on their website that Virgin is pretty much unique in this - you did the same to me despite delaying porting of my landline over to BT 19/2/2021. Yet you refuse to acknowledge that this request was due to a transfer of phone and data service to a competitor and continue to bill me monthly until I called you after a wait, to spell this out with no understanding or concession from your off-shore call centre. I'm posting this feedback as widely as I can to warn other customers.

    I ordered fibre plus 1st February 2021. I asked for a check to make sure all will be OK, that is a quick survey, and was told by text this will happen. Installation was due on the 19th March, I received emails and texts to tell me an engineer will attend between 8am and 1pm.
    The day before I called to make sure but was told there will be no need as cable does not need to be replaced. Then between 7am and 7:30 one guy was at my door from Kelly communications, he refused to install and left!
    BT then decided to place an order as if I did for ordinary fibre.
    Today 26th March it is very slow and carry on breaking!
    I am elderly so probably they think i do not need good and reliable broadband.
    Horrible company all about money, no sense of duty or morality.

    Finally leaving BT after over 30 years. I’ve stuck with them and rubbish Broadband, spending Thousands in the process, in the hope it will improve or Fibre would arrive. In the past 24 hours I’ve been cut off and not phoned back, lied to that I can’t raise a complaint unless I leave and kept on hold for up to 30 minutes. Going to 4G and giving up our landline. In my opinion they should no longer be allowed to operate

    Hi BT team today I felt that I had to write a review on your wonderful BT team. I have been through to 3 departments today: BT TV accounts, BT Billing, BT TV reception & each person i spoke to was understanding, helpful & patient. Sunny in Doncaster a special thanks to him he is such a nice young man. He explained
    everything in full, not rushed & there was a favourable outcome. Outstanding customer service. Unfortunately I have forgotten the names of the 2 ladies who dealt with my next queries but they were equally the same.
    Many thanks from me a 75+ lady keep up the good work .

    Absolutely shocking broadband! Useless for home workers. Avoid at all costs and choose any alternative provider!
