Just had my final bill come in. I have been a customer of bt for the last five years and never missed an expensive monthly payment. My final bill is a criminal £307 that is literally just my cancellation fee! Won't ever be using BT again

Grange over sands BT  
The most horrific broadband service I have ever known. If you’re reading this then please don’t frustrate yourself further by joining BT broadband. It never works especially on weekends when it’s required the most. I have made the biggest mistake by joining them. They have also been overcharging me every month and when I complained nothing happened. I’m being charged £4-5 every month on my bill even though I’m on a fixed contract. When I rang up to enquire they told me we have increased it while I was in a contract fixed at the outset ??? Here’s the thing it NEVER works

Harrow BT  
I have been with this supplier B.T. over 10 years but now disappointed with the cost.
They did warn me of contract ending but now on expensive standing one.
The speed and reliable service is good but now considering a change due to cost and will do so if not reduced to a common cost of other providers in this area.
The only concern I have is the loss of service by doing so.

London BT  
I am pretty sure that some of the less favourable reviews are concocted by other broadband companies to put you off using BT. Maybe I am one of tjhe ucky ones, but in all honesty I have had excellent servic e from BT. The only time I had to have an engineer in, was because of my own stupidity when making connection between the PC and router. I have found over the last seven years that the broaDBAnd has NEVER failed, that the speed is most satisfactory and the price is admittedly high, but it's the old story- you get what you pay for.

Lancashire BT  
Is there a worse company than BT? I placed an order and had confirmation of it two weeks ago. It was supposed to be activated today. Having heard nothing I rang them this morning to see what's going on. Apparently the order HASN'T been processed because Openreach think there are two lines into this property. There aren't. They don't know the number of the phantom line and didn't bother to contact me, they just did nothing. Absolutely lousy service. I'm thinking I've dodged a bullet.

Newmarket BT  
Worst company ever. They were charging me £45 a month for a 10 Mbps connection. I was asked to make a 24 month contract to reduce the price to £25.99. They had no problem with me not being the account holder (my partner is). As soon as I asked to cancel the account to altogether and get a refund for the last months unreliable and expensive WiFi they said they can’t talk to me because I’m not the account holder. What a joke. There are definitely better companies out there. Do your own research

I spoke to a guy called Lewis, From Newcastle, he helped me when I was moving my broadband. I've had some good customer service before but he's definitely up there at the top! Incredibly helpful. I know sometimes I'm a little useless and he was so patient, reassuring and explained things very well. Also amazing personality, it was like talking to an old friend. I really hope this finds him because everyone needs to be recognised! Straight out brilliant man (if you do read this Lewis, I got some savage girlfriend points! Flowers and everything! Sad right! Haha) thanks again!!

I do not actually have BT wifi myself but I am a private live I carer and any client I have gone to that has had BT wifi there is always issues with the speed and reliability of their wifi. I think I have had more than 10 clients with BT and every single one has been such a hassle that I just use my phone data. Stay clear of BT as they are useless!

Norfolk BT  
Just a quickish compliment. Recently swapped back to BT from EE. EE was very good but in researching to get my bill down, I found that EE were about to cease their replay TV box which I used a lot. The EE call package was better and their TV box, I found better than Youview. Nonetheless I got a slightly better monthly price with which the new installation included fibre to the door and hub plus the 'complete wi-fi' disc package. The whole kit send, hook up and installation (about £39) was all trouble free and on time. I got near max (38MB/sec) speeds almost immediately. The first install only had one disc but I had a few weak spots and phoned up to get the other two they allow (they sent one at a time but that was fine, it gave me a chance to trial two only). I still had a bit of an issue in two spots in the house with two discs (three floors and a lot of metal) but now with three discs I have 36-38 everywhere including in a shed that's about 12 feet from the house (wi-fi signal has to punch through walls and windows plus wood of shed). All in all I have to say I'm very impressed.

Kent BT  
We carried out a community funded project on our estate for over 400 residents to receive FTTP capabilities. We worked alongside BT, being made multiple false promises by their marketing team. As soon as the connections went live, they ceased all communication with us, and when customers had to complain about service, they were not interested at all. Worst display of customer service and lies from a large company I have seen for a long time. Zen is definitely now our preferred supplier.

Newcastle upon Tyne BT  
I have had BT broadband for the past 5 years at my current address and am paying £52 a month for super fast broadband 1 which is far too much. Went on the BT website and found that new customers can get the same service for £29.99 and then £37.99 after 24 months. I phoned them up to 're-negotiate' a new contract and was told that was what was agreed when I took it out so they can't give me a better deal. I told them I will leave if that's the case so she 'spoke to her manager' and said they could give it me it for £45.99 a month - still £8 a month more than a new customer once out of contract.
I've signed up for this price as I've never had a problem with the speed/reliabilty etc and looking at reviews for other providers they all seem worse than BT (unable to get Virgin in my area.)
It is disgraceful that a loyal customer should have to pay more than a new customer though.

Ordered on the 2nd December, engineer turned up 16th December then never heard anything back until I chased new year. They missed 4 appointments in a row, explained situation and why was important to be done by a certain date.. still not kept to date so was forced to cancel order. If that was the start of a new customer I was fearful what would happen if I had an actual issue. not pleased

Being fobbed off completely how rubish is this company

My partner have got them for broadband broad band was fine for a few months then they started cutting us off before the bill was due to be paid then after we paid it on the day it was due the broadband started to go funny my partner rang them up and they said that it's because it's under the stair case and because my partner has a ps4 on the wifi and some phones on the wifi which is exactly the same as when we started off so the sent a wifi booster so we can hard wire the ps4 which by the way seems a bit weird in how its set up we set it up and ps4 doesn't work hard wired plus the box then turns amber and doesn't budge and then my partner rings up about 7 times and the whole time they keep hanging up on him then we manage to get someone to stay on the line and he's now saying that we have to put everything back to where it originally was as you can't hard wire the ps4 the way we have been told
does anyone in that company know exactly what they are doing at all because to us all it doesn't seem like it which means there shouldn't be a bt company anymore

Green Hammerton BT  
Had some issues with customer service in the past but picking up the telephone to call someone will get you much better service than live chat. Reliable service and speed. My price went up after 18 months but a quick phone call telling BT I'd found a better offer elsewhere and they brought my price down by more than half price a month. Highly recommend.

There is direct fibre optic to premises where I live - BT of course (monopoly).
The max speed offered at my address is 350 Mbs / 50 Mbs.
I ordered Super Fibre 2
which is 74 Mbs / 20 Mbs. I achieve 10 Mbs upload and BT says there is nothing they could do about it. This is how they screw customers at address where they have monopoly. I would never join them if I had a chance to choose other provider.
HOW CAN THEY OFFER 50 Mbs upload at the address and they can't provide anything above 10 Mbs?? I will never choose them again!

Glasgow BT  
The most incompetent company I've ever had the displeasure of buying from. After attempting to set up a fibre broadband package at my new home, I was informed on my activation date that the original order wasn't even actually confirmed due to human error. I then attempted to set up my broadband package again. Two weeks later, on my new activation date, I was told that the order had been cancelled moments after I placed it despite the fact that I had not been informed and had made two subsequent calls to check on the order where I was told it was processing. It turns out they had tried to take over my neighbour's line instead of the deactivated line because, for some reason, when confronted by two active lines and one deactivated line, they assume one of the active lines is the one I'm attempting to set up broadband on. I'm currently sitting on my phone being told by a BT rep that they won't be able to honour my original deal now for reasons that can only be summed up as "we don't want to do it anymore", even though the only reason I don't have broadband at the original price is because of their own incompetence. I will never buy a BT product again and any BT rep I see standing on a sidewalk during a rainy day is getting splashed.

Manchester BT  
They allowed a takeover to take place without informing me about it and tried to charge me a cancellation fee. I was then promised priority re-connection which was a blatant lie, I was promised to be reconnected by a specific date which was also a lie. A code of ethics is missing in BT. Trying to charge me for their mistake (proof: text message informing me of the takeover came a day late and the letter was dated a day after my internet was disconnected), lying blatantly to my face, what kind of business practice is that? During the whole process, it took 3 different reps to actually get an apology for what happened, they made absolutely no effort to compensate me in any way for my inconvenience. In fact, Instead things kept getting delayed and I had to argue to get a refund done for the part of the month I paid and didn't use. In conclusion, if you want reliable service, professional and courteous customer service and ethical approach to situations, believe me when I say, BT is none of those. Do yourself a favour and go with literally anyone else. You will save yourself a headache.

God awful people and a god awful service. They add hidden charges in to your bill but will never ever tell you what the charges are. When you ask one of the idiots at the help centre they can never, or will not tell you what they relate to. Ask for a full breakdown they will send exactly the same bill you are questioning. Be warned, you will never know what you are paying for. Don’t use this company.

Cupar BT  
The broadband is okay but it does drop out. What really bugs me is their dishonest practices. I rang to say my broadband was not giving acceptable speeds and they said I should have been sent a new hub the last time I upgraded. They agreed to send it out free of charge. What I didn’t realise was that they renewed my contract at the same time - signing me up to another 18 months. They added Sky Sports, some HD thing which were free for three months and then started charging me. None of this was discussed on the phone. Due to some family difficulties, I didn’t check for a few months. By which time my bill had gone up from £27 to £65 a month. I called them and after TWO hours on the phone I got the sports and HD stopped and refunded. They said they could not listen to calls that were longer than six months ago. That they refunded me as a gesture of “goodwill.”
But I am still tied into a contract for another year. I will then leave as I find this kind of sales tactic unacceptable. I got the impression they are well aware of their dodgy dealings and the line “we can’t listen to calls made more than six months ago” is a well-used get out clause from admitting their dishonest sales practices. Shame on you BT. No wonder they don’t have Facebook reviews activated!

Droitwich BT  
I've been at this property for approx 4 years. for 3 years and 6 months, the connection I couldn't complain about. approx 12Mbps, but it worked. probably dropped connection about once per week. either wifi dropped, or hubs connection to the net dropped. no real problems.

for the past 6 months (second half of 2019), the speed has gone up to 20Mbps (which is nice) but my connection has been dropping, probably up to 5 times per day, either wifi, or hub to net. it is starting to get slightly irritating. websites will stop responding for no reason, 5 second delay, then "no internet" message. wait 20 or 30 seconds and it usually comes back. I haven't contacted customer service about it yet.

Mistakes after mistakes
Transferred from Sky to BT on 18th November retaining my old number only to find out on 21st November they gave me a new number.

Customer service has been terrible trying to resolve this and I won’t have my proper phone number back until 5th December (large pinch of salt taken) so I would be very wary of any service commitments they make.

They also tried to charge me £25 for the privilege of sorting out their cockup.

Disastrous so I would strongly advise against them

If you want to get internet from BT make sure you place your order at least 6 months in advance. Last time i believed 3 and a half months just happened by mistake, but 6 years later it's the same. You just lose money taking days off work to receive a call before noon with "sorry, can't be done today. Have a nice day!". Well, i will sure have now, thank you

Worst company i have ever dealt with. All they are interested in is signing you into a contract then providing you with crap service. My broadband speed was 2MB! When i complained they said the small print states a minimum of 1 MB ! They then offered me an updated router for £70. Dont be fooled by the name. BT is crap. Ive since moved to talk talk. Excellent customer service. Excellent broadband speed and at 1/3 of the price.

Honestly I can cope with the crappy broadband speed, what really pisses me off about bt is how often there’s a problem and we just lose internet all together. I’m a student and I have a whole lot of my work online, I rely on the WiFi heavily, so when there’s ‘an error on the line’ so it just doesn’t work and I can’t do anything it’s bloody inconvenient. Inconvenient doesn’t even describe it and I would be a lot more vivid if I could. If I could I would give it 0 in broadband reliability and overall satisfaction. Our WiFi has stopped working altogether multiple times and each time they **** around for a while saying that an engineers coming and then that there was an error and they can’t so it’s delayed and I end up going weeks paying for extra data and piggybacking off the school WiFi and my friends hotspot which costs me money and isn’t good for anyone. On top of this because of where we live I don’t have service anyway so I’m not contactable for a while and can’t do anything. The only reason I wouldn’t give customer service 0 is because I have pity for the poor ******* who work for this company. We pay £30 or something a month for this and honestly I think we should be paid for the torture which is using bt.
NEVER USE BT, ITS HELL. (Especially if you live in the countryside).
