Been with them for nearly a year. No problems switching. Moved house recently and took only 6 days to connect phone and bb with no hassle whatsoever. Plus net took over 2 months with many calls to sort it and refund overpayments. Very very satisfied and would recommend

Dumfries John Lewis Broadband  
Terrible connection (often nothing). Ridiculously poor customer service and serious lack of care and THEIR legal responsibility to resolve things yet they still think you should keep paying them! Stay clear everyone is my earnest advice!!

Devon John Lewis Broadband  
Really poor customer service. Had to call 4 times in the first month because the account hadn't been set up correctly. Every time they were experiencing a "higher than expected call volume", I experienced 8 minute waits.

Bills aren't fully accessible with Chrome or Internet Explorer.

London John Lewis Broadband  
Very bad customer service. The staff don't seem to know what they are talking about - seem to be getting different information every time I contact.
Took money for installation and promised a refund within 3 days- still no refund 10 days later. Took money for broadband even though the subscription hadn't yet started. When cancelling the subscription told 3 days by one member of staff, then 21 days, then told I would receive a refund via cheque.
Very quick to take money without actually providing a service to the customer. Poor.

Leicester John Lewis Broadband  
I don't recommend John Lewis. I switched my elderly parents over, difficult but done, however when there is a problem the website login to the account doesn't work, the '24/7' technical helpline isn't answered, problem after problem. Also the International calls which are supposed to be included only relates to mobiles in US and Canada, no other countries, but that isn't stated anywhere in the sales pitch. Odd 10p Other charges appearing on the bills. Don't recommend

DO NOT GO NEAR THIS. Absolutely appalling. Took money out of my account upon ordering their broadband and then didn't hear from them again. Contacted them and was told there had been a 'system error' so had not been ordered. 2 weeks now without broadband.

Oxfordshire John Lewis Broadband  
A month after instigating a switch to JL Broadband and no correspondence from them (except notifying me immediately that they were taking the first DD payment) I chased them to find out what was happening. They then switched us from PlusNet (the same provider) and cut off the phone line. 10 days later I am still waiting for the problem to be resolved. DO NOT SWITCH TO JOHN LEWIS BROADBAND.

To quote their website "We'll answer you within 24 hours during our operating hours."

Not a chance. I've been waiting for 13 days now. I've even raised another query, quoting the original query number. That was on Friday. It's Monday now and nothing yet. Avoid.

Hereford John Lewis Broadband  
Absolutely the worst Broadband I have ever had. Stopped being able to reach the end room of my small flat within 2 months, painfully slow even in the living room where the box is and customer service either don't pick up the phone or don't respond to my queries online. Completely shocking.

No problems at all. I consistently get 20Mb speed on ordinary (not fibre) broadband.
As I'm in a rural area they are cheaper than PlusNet who actually provide the service. £20 per month inc evening & weekend calls & caller ID seems pretty good.
18185 works fine for cheap calls
The PlusNet forum is a good place to get technical answers
