Would have given 0 stars.
Had an order placed by them and they put me on infinity 2 despite only being able to get a maximum speed of 21mbps at an extortionate price which subsequently put me in a new contract. On a good day the best speed achieved is 11mbps and that was at silly o'clock in the morning. Constant buffering, umpteen faults on the line resulting in being unable to make calls or go online. Having extra services added that were not wanted or requested and then having a battle to get them removed. Passed from pilla to post with no one taking responsibility or ownership. Will no doubt need to take the issues to ADR and ombudsman.
The TV package isn't worth the cost, now tv and Netflix combined are better value for money.
My advice is to get service from a more reliable company that has great customer service

Scotland BT  
Dreadful from start to finish, countless problems trying to setup in multiple houses
The Call centres they provide are next to useless, their english language skills are awful and their technical skills and knowledge even worse. Had BT broadband in 4 different properties and its been intermittent and dropped out all the time and never been the speed quoted. Overprived and you can find much better deals out there now.

Derbyshire BT  
Absolutely **** internet and rip off price. Waited until end of contact just paid 48 pounds plus some made up early exit fee 5.13 even though the contract ended in Feb 2019 and they cut me offline after 4 days. So why the hell I just paid 48£ for 4 days????. First and last time I'm with those *****

Brighton BT  
In my (long) experience of BT I can say that BT provides an appalling broadband service. Although the exchange is across the road from my house the download speed is now only 0.23 Mbps which makes broadband almost unusable. (There seems to be some continual problem at the exchange). Yet I am told that this is an acceptable speed! I am paying £55 a month for this service plus phone calls.

Fort William BT  
no stars for BT. Mind bendingly awful in every way. We have been battling to get our phone line to work for 5 years and the internet also which operates spasmodically so you can't get a refund. Each time we are fobbed off with the 'it isn't us its Open Reach' excuse. If you are lucky enough to get an Open Reach engineer to actually come at the time stated they say 'not us mate problem is with BT.' We are in a rural area with the new SUBSIDISED Rural Fibre option supplied to outside our gate but we are still being fobbed off and passed from department to department with no one taking ownership of the incompetence.
IP18 6SJ BT  
Been without Internet for a week, Even though BT promised to have it sorted on 3 different occasions, today Open Reach tell me it will be out for upto a month. BT's response is to pass me from pillar to post, ending up with Paul from Cardiff. He read continually from his notes and kept going on mute to write more notes saying the same thing !!! To be honest an absolute disgrace, I've been with then for 20 odd years and they are happy for me to be without Internet for a month but won't let me cancel my contract - that's how to keep customers - what a service !! - appalling from top to bottom

Abo BT  
Promised speeds nearer 50mbs and at the beginning that’s what we received, then the cancellation date passed and speed drops to18mbs. BT first say fault at the exchange, then line outside house now it’s inside the house and a possible £85 charge. Fault promised to be fixed by 26th - now 28th and still poor speed

Wales BT  
BT are an absolute JOKE. Ordered my installation on Jan 5 and was told would be installed on Jan 16. Install was cancelled, and due to "technical complications" had to cancel the order and reorder on Jan 12.

That put the date back to Jan 22, but connections got it back to Jan 16. Then was told the installation was cancelled AGAIN.

Was told it would be done on Jan 28, and have now been informed that the engineer WON'T be able to install... AGAIN!

BT are an absolute JOKE.

They're too big and just don't care about their customers. Stick with a smaller supplier who takes care of their customers.

Worst company I have ever been with. Firstly they charge me for a whole year of BT sport when I never asked for it. I cancel my package with BT and they send me a final bill charging me for an extra month. They haven't got anything right from day one. Stay away

Davis BT  
Worse customer service ever. Call them in August to renew the contract..clearly asking them to pay the same amount of money 53.73£ it was monthly. The person on the phone dishonestly told me that the bill was going to be the same and now I have a contract till February 2020 with a bill of 62.99£ for something that I didn’t ask and I didn’t want. When I have called them I was offered a discount of 4£ with a new contract for 6 months ending on August 2020. Totally joke. Can’t wait to leave them for good and not recommended to anybody. Stay away from BT!!!!

BT broadband is the worst broadband supplier I have ever had. Join BT if you like buffering all the time. We are paying £52 per month foe an appalling service. If we want it checked out we have to agree to pay expenses if they don’t find a fault.

Oldham BT  
The worst service I have ever received!

I was initially sold a package which was at a great price and thought this would be a simple and successful purchase.

I was informed it could take a week to install the broadband, which was not an major issue.

Then I started receiving calls and messages daily from a call centre that barely talked a word of English, and after 9 days realised they were trying to tell me they had to cancel the order and start again. This frustrated me but I allowed it to happen, as I had little choice.

To cut a long story short after 2-3 weeks I was told this had to happen again and it could take up to 3 months for the service to be installed. I simply told them to cancel and I would go elsewhere.

This is not acceptable for this day of age, and I will never attempt to go with BT again!

Customer services blaming outreach everytime. 7 hours of calls, 8 weeks of no tv or WiFi in my home. Have gone to virgin AVOID!

Northampton BT  
I spent 8 months with a fraction of the speed I was supposed to get via Fibre Broadband plsu the hub kept resetting about 6 or 7 times a day.

The help I received was awful, they didnt send a new hub out when they said they would and kept threatening to charge me £130 to look at it.

Bought out the last 6 months of the contract to go back to Virgin just to stop the stress. Only chose BT for cheap sports but its really not worth the hassle

Unable to connect to WiFi on my mobile phone, phoned BT customer service at least 10 times and was told they were sending me a new router which I've never received, on another occasion I was told the fault was reported to the installation team and they will contact me within 2 days, guess what! They never contacted me....

No consideration or care for customers. Phone staff say pretty things but have left 2 of my issues unresolved. Blamed me for their mistakes and have left me to pay for a TV package I cant use, due to the wiring. Was told cancelling during the Trial period was successful but am now stuck paying for something I cant use. NO HELP. NO CARE. WORST BROADBAND EXPERIENCE IVE HAD.

Newton Abbot, Devon BT  
They were very polite and followed script, but the issue was not resolved and I was cut off from chat mid sentence. BT has been charging for a service it has not been able to provide for several months now due to a faulty hub which their own engineer identified and refuses to replace it without going through yet more test on the line - which is fine as the fault is not with the line, but the hub. Still not happy and no chance of repair. The customer I am representing has dementia and Alzheimer's, so you would think that they would prioritise essential services for folk with disabilities, but .... nope. They will not even discuss a refund for the months wasted trying to get the service up and running.

Scotland BT  
Never had any problems with BTs broadband services and the smart hub range is outstanding. I don't get any buffering and the additional free services such as the free Wi-Fi hotspots are really helpful. BT can be a more expensive service but value for money especially in terms of the added free services (Wi-Fi hotspots, cloud storage and virus protect) and the broadbands performance alone makes it worth the couple of quid more you pay. overall great experience. I think a lot of people forget how much they use their broadband and don't give much thought to it other than getting the cheapest deal available. When you've got a household all using the broadband 24/7 and you've decided to pay the least you can for your internet its not surprising when you don't get a quality service.

Kent BT  
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.

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.

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.

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.

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
