Reviewer Location Reviewing Date Ratings
Sometimes it seems like these review forums are just opportunities for people to complain and hardly anyone leaves positive reviews. Well, here is one for a change.

We've been with BT for some years now and, in the past couple of years, our village has been upgraded to fibre. It is disgusting that this has taken so long, compared to other countries like Canada which laid down fibre even to outlying townships a decade ago, but there you are.

Since the fibre upgrade and, obviously, the delivery of a new router, broadband has improved dramatically. Best of all is the responsiveness of the BT helpline. You now get to talk to people in the UK or Ireland and they're pretty knowledgeable. Whenever we've had broadband dropouts a quick call has restored and speeded up the service.

What's more our contract is now coming to an end and I found this site because I was looking for a cheaper deal. It looked like SSE is the only reliable and recommended alternative to BT and I could make a £20 saving monthly by switching.

I rang BT just to find out when my contract was ending and got talking about deals and managed to make that £20 saving by staying with them for another 18 months. I've also saved another £15 a month by switching my mobile account to them.

All in all, I'm happy with the BT performance and my dealings with them. Recommended.

Huntingdon BT  
If I could give 0 stars I would. Our business has lost thousands in revenue promising us their service after cancelling installation SEVEN times! We were shipped from pillar to post overseas which cost a huge amount in phone costs. unreliable, inefficient; If you can't complete a service then why take it on

ST HELENS BT  
The most unreliable company I have come across in the entire world. The staff members are the dumbest bunch of incompetent fools in the world.

BT has stolen money from me and made promises that they will reimburse me in the next bill but still have not done it.

I have been trying to move my phone line from upstairs to downstairs for four months now and they have made 4 different appointments and did not show up for 2 appointments. They showed up for 2 appointments and were unable to do the job because they are just dump and pathetic.

I have probably spent over 50 hours speaking to them on the phone in the last 4 months. All the BT customer annoyance service assistants on the phone do their utmost best to annoy the **** out of you.

Avoid this company at any cost.

Do not touch BT with a barge pole. They have been happy for me to pay well over the odds fo a long time. £35 over the odds per month to be exact. Guess that's what happens when you don't keep eagle eyes clamped on these comanies all the time! Lesson learned.

Would have given no stars but there wasn’t an option for that..good enough to take your money off you every month because I was in a contract but paid for 11 month of no phone and broadband but won’t give me any compensation because there pathetic excuse was I wasn’t phoning them all the time to report it..I would advise to steer clear of bt don’t want to know when you complain steer clear of them better providers out there who are cheaper and have better customer services bt’s customer services is appalling.

Dover BT  
I went around the houses to try and arrange broadband with BT as they kept saying my house didn't exist - despite providing them with the name and mobile number of the person that did the survey and the survey reference number. Finally got a date for installation. The engineer turned up after the allocated time (8am-1pm) and said he couldn't do it. Spoke to 8 different people in less than 24 hours - each one telling me something different. Still no broadband.

London BT  
I have landline and fibre broadband with BT. BT's customer and technical service is all mostly handled via overseas call centres, and they just seem to read scenarios off rote, so don't really listen, if they understand your problem at all, so it's a terribly frustrating experience. BT left me without a landline on and off for several months when I moved to a new place until they finally admitted the fault was with them, and eventually rectified it. It took many calls until the problem was taken seriously. Broadband fibre speeds were nowhere near what was advertised, and the service cut out quite often. Once an Openreach engineer came and noticed the wiring on the street was pretty precarious which explained why there had been so many issues. On top of all that, their service is not value for money. I was on a deal originally but I was unwell over a period during which the deal contract came to an end; they don't notify you and then started charging a hefty amount monthly as per their standard tariff, so I ended up overpaying a few hundred pounds, so keep note of your contract periods. I just swallowed it as I knew I would be moving in a few more months so kept things the same as I didn't want to pay an early exit fee if I started another contract. Of course, don't be completely fooled by "no exit fee" either on a standard tariff, as they will want 30 days' notice, which is effectively a hidden fee. There are lots of better and cheaper providers out there with much better customer service. BT have lost touch and are sadly not a good provider, consistently. I won't be using them again.

You'll need a good 4G service with BT as the broadband is not very good. BT customer service pointed out that the fast speeds were only for people in the bigger cities. In other areas, we should expect a worse service.

My broadband speed is approx 1.5mbp, it’s terrrible the connection drops out and most of the time we can’t get online. We’re stuck with them for another 12 months, and it doesn’t look like anything is about to change. Wished I’d never signed up with BT as they aren’t interested in fixing this connection.

Cupar BT  
Unreliable.
When it works, it's ok, but sometimes it dies right at the time you need it and it's very annoying.
It's still better than Sky but nowhere as good as BT was.

Also, another problem with the Internet is that when someone uploads a file, Internet in whole house becomes unusable, so we have to use 3G internet for it instead. Not only does upload make the internet unusable, but it's also very slow and even not very big files take ages to upload!.

I get BT broadband for free and I still don’t want it. Giving one star is to much. BT have the cheek to portray that the average customer rating is three star. I don’t think so. One star is more like it. Keep well away from any BT service unless you want to throw money away and go back to the 1980’s.

My issue was overcharging, I agreed a price for a 12 month contract but was overcharged and the refund was agreed but I never received the refund. BT signed me up to another contract charged me £80 in equipment fees and wasn’t willing to reimburse me. Very bad experience.

Been with BT for many years now, consequently the most frustrating years of my life. The Broadband that BT provides is a mess. Exaggerated WiFi speeds / lieing about WiFi Speeds. Every day my WiFi goes down for no reason. BT have brought me closer to ending it all than anything else. If you're reading this. DO NOT BUY BT. DO NOT

BT have just upgraded my broadband, during the upgrade there was an accidental break in service. I reported this at about 1700 on 27 December. A smart engineer arrived at 1100 on 28 December and tracked the fault back from the house to the cabinet, including checking the incoming wiring. All was fixed by 1230. First rate service. I also ended up with a SIM card that I didn't need, this was cancelled with a minimum of fuss. Thank you BT

North east England BT  
After getting well and truly sick of BT saying 'there is nothing wrong our end' when failing miserabely to resolve the uk's worst broadband ever, I feel this statement really means 'we are still stealing a lot of money out of your bank account and giving you next to nothing in return despite knowing we are breaking our contract'. Our BB keeps dropping every few minutes, can barely stream anything of which in this day and age is a crime given the legitimate streaming services we pay a lot of money for. Yesterday I did a speed test getting 0.7mb but they are charging me for 50mb (nothing wrong our end then eh). After several phone calls and endless tech walkthroughs they literally said there is nothing more they can do and I have their 'refuse' package until July 2019. It sickens me to the core. We have brand new laptops and phones etc and they ALL drop BB frequently (but nothing wrong our end). They even suggested putting a BB signal booster between the BB router and our laptops of which is approximately 5 feet away in direct view? They even suggested hard wiring our laptops so that we have ethernet cables lying all over the living room floor? They make my blood boil and cannot stomach the name BT never mind all the rubbish they spout. Until the day I draw my last breath I will NEVER EVER have their Fisher price equipment in my house again (no offence Fisher price at least your stuff worked!)

Romford BT  
First off, a one star rating for their reliability and customer service is still an overstatement. We have had issues from the start of joining them and it hasnt got better. The internet is more unreliable than anything, we thought Virgin Media were bad but currently the only thing we can rely on from BT is a lack of help from support and our internet to die. They have come out and replaced our cables as that was apparently the issue but shock horror, we are still suffering and will be without internet in the house over christmas. If you are looking to join BT i would look elsewhere, i think a potato is more reliable.

Back to their support, i contacted them multiple times regarding an issue with the bt app. The first person took 20mins without answering a single question thrn directed me to an "expert". Thr expert then didnt have a clue and when i asked a question he couldnt answer, the chat was disconnected. Their customer service is non existant and if the answer isnt on their script they say they will send an engineer out and then say you may be charged if the fault is our end (last i checked this would still be their issue as they installed exerything)

Avoid, avoid, avoid at all costs unless they buck their ideas up and change their service completely.

Longsight BT  
Complained to BT about our Broadband constantly dropping out, each time I did this BT advised me to get a better, faster Deal, a new contract. Now we are paying over £50 a quarter. We tried to end our Contract and were advised we had to pay £216 if we pulled out. We still loose connection from time to time and BT say they don't guarantee constant connection. They said, "Complaining on social media can be effective" lol check out Facebook posts, EFFECTIVE? Are you kidding? We have been bludgeoned into paying more and more each time we have complained, by telling us to upgrade to this and that, and I'm sure we are not alone? Did this ever happen to YOU? We had an Openreach engineer sent out to our home to fix the fault by BT? Great he found out what was wrong, fixed the problem. All good then? No. The engineer went out to his Openreach Vehicle and filled in his report stating No problems found? WHY? Because BT-Openreach would get away with paying Compensation to Customers if the report states this. BT allowed this, turned a blind eye. Now today if the Engineer finds a fault in your home you have to pay a fee of £75. Is that the same TRUSTED Engineer from OPENREACH sent out by BT? Yes it is.
I've spoken to BT today asking them to change over my account to my wife's name as my health is deteriorating and it would be less stress later on. I have also asked for a lesser cost contract £29.99 for 18 months. As advertised on TV, But they refused.After 50 years being with BT. My Advice to all that want a phone-broadband etc, stay well clear of BT. you will not be disappointed.
michael n Betty lewendon
ps
Were you or your family, or Buisness treated with the same Scam-Con, by BT- Openreach to deny Thousands of Customers Compensation? BT-Openreach must have all the Engineers reports, Was your fault report same as ours? Lies, Ofcom UK media watchdog, have they been informed about this pratice?

READING BT  
Several weeks ago I reported problems with my router, far from the three days as promised on the adverts, I am still waiting. Every time I speak to BT customer service they assure me that they have placed an order for one to be sent, each time I check my order History and nothing has been sent. My complaint has been escalated to the highest level and was given final assurances that my new router has been sent, but the same thing has happened again. Please avoid BT at all costs.

Avoid avoid avoid. Can't believe how disappointed I am. Ordered the service on 29/11. Was supposed to be active 6/12. Nothing happened and I called the customer service. They said the engineer made a mistake and it will be activated 11/12. Nothing happened. Called the customer service and they said the engineer is rescheduled for 16/11. Northing happened. Same stuff happened again and the next "activation date" is 19/11. Bt has one job and that is to turn my broadband on. They have failed to do that simple task for 3 weeks now. I would never recommend anyone to change their service to BT.

Unbelievable. Broadband speed is awful. BT don’t guarantee speed of WiFi in my house only wired connection. BT TV hasn’t been working for 3 months. They will only send out an engineer only if I agree to pay £85 if the fault is in my house? Don’t trust them! Poor poor service!! I was with Sky for 10 years. Not one problem. No one.

The worst service I have ever been in contact with. Booked an installation, took a day off work and no-one turned up. BT told me the engineer came at 3.30pm but I was waiting all day, so basically a lie. I re-booked for another day and called BT twice to make sure they would come, they told me on both occasions that someone would definitely attend this afternoon. Called them a third time and BT said that the appointment was changed for the next day, without bloody telling me. I cancelled straight away, I am not paying some muggy company my hard earned cash even and this is even before the initial installations.

I have been having issues with the router since mid October, contacted BT on numerous occassions, speaking most of the time to rude staff who were sending me instructions for hub 5 or smart hub while I have got hub 4! They were aware as they had asked before. Asking me to split connection, etc. Ended up with having 3 engineers who ordered new hub for me. It didn't arrive so I contacted them, they don't know anything about it! Once it arrived, the speed has dropped so complained again, then they sent me some texts and asked to reply what would cost me extra money. In addition, on one occassion I asked when my broadband contract would expire, lady told me the 4th of January. I rang them at the beginning of December to cancel, I was told that line rental contract expires on that day, broadband contract in July. So lazy! Honestly, I'm fuming, never had such bad issues with Sky or Virgin. I can't wait the contract to be finished!

BT custemer for phone many years and broadband for a few years. Switch to Fibre but had 9 days without broadband due line not set up. First person claim ethernet cable and would take 5 works to receive this to sort problem which was wrong and needed engineer. 6 days after second person said engineer required. spoke to rude line manager offer £10 as complaint. then tried to charge £85 for the engineer which was the incorrect as previous showed under £50. finally had engineer solve broadband and he confirmed normally no charge for fibre set up. spoke to second link manager about complaint again poor service and like previous manager lied about complaint service at BT. not all staff are bad as previously spoken to other members in other offices and ok. Broadband staff are just poor at everything. BT just rubbish and I would never use them again
Surrey BT  
If you plan switching to BT, beware they would cut your existing broadband service on Friday morning and leave you whole weekend and bank holiday without Internet connection - which has happened to me. And they won't give you any compensation either. What they boasted "Switching today, connected tomorrow" is totally ******** and lie. BE CAREFUL!!!

I bought a BT broadband in 2016 and then renewd on 17.In 2018 when i was getting a problem with their speed download/upload speed and worst customer service experience ever i had in life, decide to change my provider spoken to BT few times about my last day of ending contract and so on. after switching provider (in process)after few days later received an email from BT stating that i need to pay £86 for cancallation fee due to i am in contract with them till 2019. So i contacted BT customer service lady doesn't know what she is talking about and all the time TRYING to selling me BT package in a different ways. which i said NO for any package after waiting 45 min over the phone, customer service lady mentioned me i had renew my contract in arpil 18 for next 12 month contract. which i was completely disagreed with her as why would i will buy a new contract when i am already in contract and new contract is more expensive then old contract thirdly i had not received any emails or notifcation that about new contract or switching to new contract.
I also mentioned about previous conversation with BT customer service agent which they had confirmed me my last date of ending contract in nov 18.
Honeslty after spending 3 weeks talking to them its feel like on these customer service is Dumb, and stupid which doesn't understand as well as no communication with each other.
IF this case not resolve here i will take it to MANAGING DIRECTOR and THEN COURT.
Piss taker BT. Stay away from these morons.

Following resetting of an e-mail password by an Indian call centre techie my e-mail stopped working. A quick call to 150 got me to Ireland where I was fed a line of utter BS yet promised a call back by an expert at a set time.

The duly appointed time came and went and was exceeded by two hours when a call mysteriously came through on my mobile - which I wasn't expecting. Unfortunately the call rang out. Ringing 150 again I was told that there was nothing that could be done, India would ring me again when they were able, they could not define a fixed time. Realising I was beaten, I hung up, did a quick internet search to find out how to complain.

Yet another phone number and another wait for 15 mins for it to be answered by an abrasive woman from the "Billing" team who couldn't help me and was totally disinterested. When I asked why a member of Billing was answering a complaint call I was told we ALL answer complaints. It's nice to know that your complaint call is not going to a dedicated team but just some disinterested staff member who couldn't give a toss quite safely with no redress. I was told that things were the way they were and I would have to wait. The reason I was contacted by my associated mobile was because there was a fault with my landline - curious that - as I was talking to the hapless BT Billing bint by..... the supposedly faulty landline!!!!!!!

Well, I am still waiting but I haven't been idle. After 20 years of being a loyal BT customer and after three abortive, painful and stilted calls with Indian customer service within that time period, I have finally had enough. I will be swapping to Plus Net who curiously enough despite their BT links offer a 30% cheaper equivalent package with call and tech support centres in .... Sheffield and Leeds and with an award winning customer service group to boot..

My opinion of BT is that it doesn't matter how long you have been with them, customer loyalty counts for nothing, they just don't give a ****... and are an unmitigated, 24 karat shower of utter ordure and that is being polite.

My advice, is to other disaffected customers is to vote with your feet and secure a better service at a more competitive price. - just like me.
