How this company has a license to even advertise broadband is beyond me .
When I first set up my connection well in advance they couldn't even get that right. After being lied to numerous times telling me I am connected which was simply not true. When calling the so called customer services to find out why my connection hadn't happened I was just palmed of with a load of jargon of technical rubbish. Also without being rude or shouting they will just simply hang up on you when they can't give you a reasonable answer.
Thankfully out of contract with them and never to return. I would advise anyone looking for a reputable Broadband supplier never sign up with John Lewis.

Ashington John Lewis Broadband  
New customer rang Customer services as charged £96.00 instead if £26.00 contract fee. Told extra was because I had cancelled my contract, completely untrue. Customer services said someone their end must have done, it had happened before. Said he would sort and then was transferring me to another department re the cancellation, hung on for over 20mins, I rang off. Rang customer services back, same result, rung off again, rang customer service again,phone put down on me. Rang again this time lady said she would sort and yes I was due a refund of £70.00 as I had not cancelled. Email arrived I would get a refund of £48.22. . Again rang customer service to be told refund comes in two parts, a manager has to authorise the rest and i would get email. 5 days later no such email has arrived. I still have no idea whether my contract will be ended or whether they have corrected this. My last resort is I have written to their office in Sheffield, recorded delivery. Hoping for a personal contact who can sort this problem.Customer support hopeless and frustrating. Not worth bothering with.

I have just switched to John Lewis broadband, the whole set up was so simple and I have a good fast connection at less than half that I was paying bt which is ridiculous considering bt own plusnet which is who John Lewis is supplying, the trouble with bt is they give great deals for new customers but ignore loyal customers, I won't go back to them, ever.

West Rudham Norfolk John Lewis Broadband  
Sent request to cancel broadband and telephone service in the begining of March (to take effect the 4th April) as a new supplier was commissioned to take over from that date.
They sent a final invoice for telephone service for the period up to the 10th of April even though the it was not used
All in all a rubbish company to do service with !

Yorkshire John Lewis Broadband  
Back in November I wrote a dire review of John Lewis having left BT.
The problems were blamed on the lines in my house although I was convinced that wasn't true. One support person seemed to go beyond the norm in trying to help and I was grateful but I decided to leave. There was a penalty to pay but it seemed worth it.

A day later Open Reach apologised to the entire town about their failures during the previous weeks.

So I retained my account and since then connectivity has been pretty good.
They would not be my first choice provider but at least I'm happy to wait until the end of my contract.

Cheshire John Lewis Broadband  
AVOID AT ALL COSTS!! It is Plusnet in disguise!
We chose John Lewis Broadband as I have many insurance policies etc with them and they have always had amazing customer service. We moved to a new property just before lockdown in the UK and it did not have WiFi (we work from home). Knowing there would be a long wait for broadband, we were surprised to find no notice of restrictions etc to set up on the website and so paid the £85.99 to install everything.
For a week I was then bombarded with phonecalls from Plusnet who had an aggressive sales manner- one stating I was "foolish" to go with John Lewis and not Plusnet as they would be cheaper. On the third call I specifically asked not to be contacted again and still had calls from mobiles of their sales team!
A week later I still had no confirmation email or slot for delivery etc. I was shocked when I called up that it was Plusnet I was dealing with not John Lewis. After being on the phone for an hour, a rather rude assistant said that they were definitely coming out the following Tuesday to put in WiFi and that is have an email.
Two days later, no email. I called again and again was passed around for 42minutes. I then got to a customer advisor who can only be described as the rudest person on the planet. When i said I was told that the broadband would be installed next week he laughed and then said "there's no way that will happen, don't you see the news?! No one is able to install anything until June!" When I said that that is fine, I'd like to cancel and a refund as we will Lok at alternative arrangements (I didn't say but I was going to call my mobile company and get a dongle), The boy laughed again and said "you're really stupid aren't you? No one can do this for you before us." I was then told everything for me was cancelled and I could expect a cheque in the post (to which I asked why they could not refund a card) and told I was ride for talking over him when he kept explaining how stupid I was.
I would strongly recommend abiding this atrocious company.
We then went with BT expecting a delay and actually the technician came out 3 working days after our enquiry!

Pembrokeshire John Lewis Broadband  
Had a few minor glitches when we first joined, but had been notified that this might happen at switchover from our previous provider. Since then a good service, no problems at all. And I think Customer Service has been fine. I have only had to ring them twice all year and they were helpful and courteous. Don’t do gaming or anything very high tech so would say strength of broadband suits us OK.

I can’t Believe how bad John Lewis has been ,the Internet is absolutely awful ,Customer service no help at all, said if I want to cancel they will charge me £73 even though they say if it’s their fault they will cancel you free of charge, iv been told To unscrew the socket from the wall I’ve never gone through anything like this before , Also telling me they have 30 days to resolve the problem so basically I’m still paying them but have no Internet for 30 days never heard anything like it I have now paid To come out of the contract I definitely definitely do not recommend John Lewis to anybody.

East sussex John Lewis Broadband  
I’m sorry to say I will be changing ASAP as they have been the slowest broadband provider I have ever had. Just taken over an hour to download one program and it’s still going!! Snails pace is faster!
They promise a fast fibre and just haven’t delivered. It’s so slow and buffering is the norm. Would never recover use again. Nothing good to say about John Lewis Broadband :-(

Lancashire John Lewis Broadband  
The gorilla at the London Zoo probably knows much more about what broadband is that the clowns calling themselves John Lewis Broadband team. I have given one star as this website does not let you to leave a review without given a star rating. One star is one too many for these loosers. No customer service, no broadband, their own website does not work for bill payments. It has not been working since September 2019. Emails complaints, phone calls do not help. They just do not care because they are not intelligent enough to understand and resolve their own issues. They should be banned from calling themselver a "broadband provider" for life. John Lewis may be a good department store but they neew to put their own house in order and get rid of the so called "broadband team." They could at least start by reading reviews online.
