    My first IP was Waitrose, and now John Lewis. I have had excellent service for over eight years. The customer service team and tech support have been brilliantly helpful, and I have no problems to report.
    I recommend JL broadband.

    I made the monumental mistake of not reading enough reviews of John Lewis broadband before signing up. Switched over in May 2017, nothing but problems ever since. Had excuse after excuse, been told I've got the router too close to other items, even though wired broadband is also a problem. Now another week of phone calls and waiting for updates with nothing. John Lewis batting it to Open Reach and vice versa. Intermittent drops which can be as close together as a few minutes on/off. No particular pattern, only know about wired devices as we have linked to our 'smart' digibox. Such a shame because when it's working it is a good speed. I never usually do any reviewing online, so the fact I'm going out of my way to post on as many forums as I can find should tell you something. AVOID. I'm considering further action and looking to evidence voided contract.

    Absolutely awful service, never use John Lewis for wifi. Lack of communication, do not update customers. Still without wifi even though we have paid for engineer and monthly rate. Engineers don’t turn up to appointments neither do they update you of their absence. Haven’t received complimentary voucher neither. Beyond disappointed they haven’t done anything remotely reasonable nor justifiable.

    Worst provider I have ever had. Cant wait for my contract to end.Super slow speed, frequent crashes and all I get from customer service is "speed as advertised".Add one more device and everything is even worse. Would never recommend.

    Absolutely appalled. Cancelled my account today after waiting ONE MONTH for them to install our broadband. They constantly lied, saying it would be installed in the next few days. They strung us along promising compensation for our troubles but now I have had enough. DO NOT GET JOHN LEWIS BROADBAND UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Me and my house mates have spent around £100 on data add ons due to their incompetence - we have not received any compensation. Customer service is awful, had to wait on the phone for at least an hour every time I tried to get through to them. Don't waste your time or money on a company that is clearly inept. Only wish I had read these reviews sooner, have been without wifi for about 5 weeks now. Shocking.

    The worst provider I ever had, I discontinued the contract within the cooling period as I suggested all the crap which will follow, however they manage to delay to stop the services and I had to pay for early breaking the contract. Real hustlers, never ever again and because of them the plus net as well.

    Stay far away from John Lewis broadband! I'm coming to the end of my contract and I will cancel immediately. Connection issues daily. Wasted hours on the phone complaining to no use. This last month I have actually used up my mobile internet allowance because I've had to use it in the house as John Lewis broadband falls out constantly.

    I was with sky broadband and it was getting more expensive each year, so changed to john lewis, reputable company, massive mistake. The internet is awful, every day there is an issue. Have reported it severally, apparently it is not their fault it is BT, yet I never had this problem with Sky. Looking at the reviews from people, it is obvious I am not the only one. Fortunately, my 12 month contract is over and I am switching. They havent even offered compensation for the abysmal internet speeds. The poor speed has affected my business and studies. Please - if you regularly use the internet and need normal to high speeds for viewing videos or sending and downloading documents, then do not go with john lewis broadband.

    Don't.
    We have been struggling with our JL broadband service from joining. Inconsistent connections and slow speeds are what you eventually are bound to. PLEASE read the Terms and conditions... they DO NOT GUARANTEE WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY. Which basically says it all.
    Unfortunately we are going to have to pay for the remainder of our term but are looking to another provider to switch asap. Not worth it.
    Disappointed in John Lewis, we joined with good faith in the brand.

    I have requested John Lewis broadband, they have connected me apparently but I have not received my router! I have called last Thursday to inquire where the router was and I was told they will send it first class so I would receive it on the next working day. That day was Friday but nothing. So I keep asking myself why on earth someone will connect your broadband and therefore disconnect from the previous company before having send the router. I watch TV via Wi-Fi so basically last week I had not Wi-Fi, no TV, no broadband connection. That was last week and this week looks like the something, I think I will call SKY I still have their router so I am sure I will be connected again in no time and sayonara JLewis .

    Thought I would share my positive experience. I know people who give reviews are more likely to have had a negative experience, with any company.

    Have used various internet providers in moving around as a student, when I began work etc, mostly Virgin. I live alone, don't have high needs for gaming etc but do watch films on Netflix etc.

    John Lewis has been a breath of fresh air. The box came, I phoned to activate it, my call was answered promptly, the call handler was easy to communicate with me, plugged it in- whole thing done in 10 minutes. Have had for around 10 months now, wholly reliable, hasn't let me down once.

    Fabulous service, reasonably priced and I have recommended to friends.

    John Lewis have been the worse company to deal with in terms of customer service. The phone staff are rude and dont listen. I have been repeatedly harassed at work when I have asked several times not to be called at work. The response was. Well you dont need to pick up the phone. Actually as I explained I work with patients so yes. I do.
    I have been told my address does not exist, told they have do do surveys told they need to do external work told there is a problem with my address told they were ready to book in then ignored me for days and dispute saying they are 24 hour service I cant get hold of anyone to book appointment so message and say can you send me dates please. Nothing. Again send message this is my address I am free these dates nothing. Another message. Further attempts at calling after work nothing. Today i get we have cancelled your order. Do feel free to call us if you change your mind and want to rejoin us.
    What a load of rubbish. For such a high name company John Lewis are letting themselves down badly in this area.

    Do not choose John Lewis broadband thinking that the name suggests quality as you exoect with it stores. Two separate things!!
    I thought, a name you can rely on, must be good, how wrong was I.
    Fibre... 3.5 download MAXIMUM. Installed a week later than I was expecting, then after installation discovered hadn't been setup correctly their end. Had a friend over who deals with such things thru work, she was on the phone to an engineer for 30 minutes trying to sort for me!
    Reply to my complaint, patronising and sarcastic veiled very thinly. Discovered it in my junk box which in all fairness is where it belonged.
    Very often no internet at all as proved by my NOW TV box in the middle of programmes advising me to check my connection.
    I left it too late to cancel the contract but won't be making that mistake ever again. I'm now nearing the end of my year and I can't wait to leave. You have been warned!

    Router is very bad with its WiFi signal if you have a single wall in between the router and certain devices

    This problem has been ongoing since installation in December 2016

    JOHN LEWIS
    CHANGE YOUR ROUTER

    I have had to purchase a Wifi Dongle, AC600 802.11ac Dual Band 5GHz Mini Wireless Network USB Wifi Adapter from Amazon to get my computer to even see the signal

    Worked solidly for 5 days but today even though I'm connected internet is up and down with the data received

    Where do I start? Ordered the Fibre Extra 19TH December and paid my deposit. Getting concerned that I had not had a start date or router, so I phoned up on 6th January. JL hadn’t actually ordered the router nor actioned the order itself. Negotiated a months free broadband because of their negligence, given a written start date of the 17th January. On the 16th January again concerned that I had received no router, phoned again. Start date put back to 20th January, no router had been ordered. Customer service manually ordered the router. The 20th January arrives, router was delivered on the previous Wednesday 2 days previously. No phone. Phone finally went live at 2pm. Broadband not activated. After phoning again and explaining that the lights on the router showed that it was not picking up a fibre signal nor connecting to the internet I was told that it could take till midnight and that they would contact me when it was live. They did not contact me at all. Midnight came and went no broadband, lights on router same as before.
    Phoned on 21st explaining I had no broadband. Cannot even access the router homepage. One hour spent with technical support, prompted by me to acknowledge that the router was probably faulty, and that I was not on the package that I contracted for. New router ordered. Transferred to another department, to determine why I was put on a different package and why was I not upgraded to the package I contracted for. Unable to discover why and unable to put me on the package I contracted for. Apparently internal system problem. I was mistakenly put on the basic broadband package and not the fibre package I contracted for. Says by text that they will try again on 23rd January. Now told that they have to order the fibre package from Openreach (could they not have done it when I ordered) and could take 48 hours to process then activate. Apparently my phone number says I cannot get fibre but my address says I can. News to me since I have had fibre with Sky and Talk Talk in the previous 4 years.
    New router arrived 24th January, couldn’t access internet, fibre will still not be activated for another 48 hours. After spending almost 1 hour on phone to tech, finally accessed router settings through ipad in order to input the CORRECT password and username, that were incorrectly applied from JL. Finally on the internet, basic broadband, although I now have to wait to be activated for fibre, for which I have paid for and for which JL failed to order. Broadband in theory went live on 20th January finally accessed basic broadband on 24th January. Absolute shambles of an organisation. I have never had so much trouble from a supplier as I have had with JL. Will stay with them for a year then leave.

    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 !

    This has to be the worst company I have been with since TalkTalk. I have had no internet, e-mail or anything for nearly 2 weeks yet they say everything looks normal on their system. I cant cancel as I am 3 months into the contract. There must be some law that protects us customers who are getting fleeced and cannot get out of a contract that THEY are not fulfilling? A disgrace and I was suckered into it by the John Lewis brand. DO NOT TOUCH WITH AN EXTENDED BARGE_POLE!!!!

    Hello..I have been with JL broadband now since May 17 changing over from sky and I have to say I am really happy with it..being someone who has used the internet since dial up days I knew exactly what I was looking for ..knew of foreseeable problems that could and can occur..The only thing I would say is how I pay for it..I like to know when the payment date is due that I can go online and pay which I can but only on that specific day I would like to be able to pay beforehand if I want to..and my internet not be restricted on the same day that payment is due and the day lasts up to 12.00 midnight..but other than that ..a good service.. :)

    Previous bad reviews are exactly the same as we have suffered. We changed to John Lewis on 30 May. As I write on 30 June we have not even been connected! We have rung daily and numerous staff we have spoken to have lied, lied and lied with any BS they can think of. We wrote to the CEO of John Lewis Broadband signed for post 3 weeks ago and he has not responded. Clearly a "couldn't give a toss attitude from the top down! We have cancelled our DD. Bet it doesn't take them 3 weeks to realise that! Intend taking this to Watchdog and hope everyone else with complaints does the same. We all need to report these sanctimonious so called customer service people who are sneering at us and blame Openreach. John Lewis Partnership claim they have nothing to do with John Lewis Broadband!?Really! As most gave said they've gone with John Lewis Broadband because of the good John Lewis name! We have all been fooled!

    I have had a Waitrose email address for many, many years. There was no problem until JL used PlusNet and instead of a Waitrose webmail site I was directed to the webmail John Lewis broadband page/site. On the previous Waitrose webmail (intuitive interface) I could easily delete emails from my inbox to free up space. This has been impossible with the new site. At present I have had no incoming mail for four days, the webmail shows almost 2,000 messages and 100% full. Three calls to 'support' and an email and still no action or reply. As soon as this is sorted I am going to change provider.
    This is not up to John Lewis standards and very disappointing.

    Never choose John Lewis Broadband!!! It’s TERRIBLE. So bad that I had to go out and buy a sim with data so I could function day to day. The internet continually cuts out, phone crackles and tv reception stinks. Smarmy verbiage from customer support but it all adds up to nothing. I was told upgrading to optic would improve reception but this was a complete LIE and tantamount to mis-selling. Then to add insult to injury, I was only offered a £29 refund for MONTHS of rubbish internet plus mega annoyance and time wasting. This sum didn’t cover the extra expense I incurred buying data and sim from another provided while I unsuccessfully tried to get my JL broadband sorted.
    I used to love John Lewis. Now I hate them.

    Like another reviewer I have closed my account and JLB does not recognise this although I have their letter telling me how sorry they are I have left. I stopped my DD as after many phone calls as I could not trust them and sure enough today I had an email from them demanding payment by another means. In fact they owe me a refund but "due to a new accounting system" this will have to be by cheque. I cannot go on-line to discuss this as my account is closed and the phone line has a wait of over 10 minutes. I'm not surprised!
    I would just ignore them if they did not owe me money and I could be sure they would not file a payment failure on my credit file.

    Signed up on 26th October and still have no broadband service. I gave up trying to call the helpdesk as it was always experiencing higher than average calls. Made a complaint and was told it was because they had not sent me a router. I have my own ADSL router so that is not the issue at all, however the Customer Complaints person also said they tried to call me and left a voice message. No one has called my mobile which is my contact number. I would not suggest to anyone that they use JL broadband, in fact I've been telling anyone that I can to avoid them like the plague. Customer service is nil; they appear to have no idea why I do not have service; and ignore messages posted on 'my query', hence why I made the complaint. I had to give one star for speed, but in all honesty I have no idea what my speed is since I have never had the service!

    Rubbish Customer Service! It is a big con - you THINK it is all with John Lewis and their values? In the provision of Broadband and phone services, it is PLUSNET - who ARE rubbish!. By association, John Lewis are rubbish indeed worse than that, they mislead you on matters of service provision.

    Failed to take first direct debit cut off service within an hour of email stating there was a problem. I rang reconfirmed direct debit details. I was told everything ok. Direct debit still not taken. I then get email threatening debt collectors & phone cut off at same time. Forced to make card payment for their incompetence. I thought BT was bad! John Lewis this is damaging your brand.

    Cannot recommend. Customer service is non existant. They do not answer phones or reply to emails.
    Can't comment on whether broadband works as I am still waiting for a router to be delivered 2 days after service ( So Called) commenced .
    They say that they are sorry for making me wait and I am tired of the musac.

    I signed for JL broadband on Feb 1, its now Feb 18 and I still don't have a reliable connection. I don't feel I've any chance of getting one. Do not sign up for this service, you will eventually lose your mind....

    They give you the worst possible speeds until you call them and ask them to fix it. They then feed you some technobabble jargon that even they clearly don’t understand and unthrottle your speeds. Then if you power ever goes out or if you need to unplug your router for whatever reason. You’ll have to do all of it again. Couldn’t recommend less.

    Anybody else annoyed at the fact that there is now no way of printing out a COMPLETE detailed telephone bill, such as via a pdf? I have been told by Service Dept that I have to print a summary via Firefox and then do a print screen of each separate page of an Excel spreadsheet in order to get the complete bill. TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!!

    Telephoned JL to extend my 12 m contract which was expiring. Turns out that last year when I had been advised that the account had been transferred into my name, this had not been done. This has caused immense problems. Tried to open a new account, PLus net who run JL managed to omit vital information, got my address wrong, contacted a neighbour who has committed criminal offences, got my name wrong and their attitude after having made all these issues was poor. After making all these errors they have threatened debt collectors on the old account which is not in my name. I will be closing my JL partnershipcard account and never using JL insurance again!!

    Well it was a fiasco from start to finish; huge delay of over a month to get service transfered from Plusnet. Useless initial compensation- I had to complain even to get a cordial response....staff were quite rude intially.
    Then they up the price and I cancel and move (to Zen) and Im told that there will be no early cancellation fee. Im sent letters sayingthere will be and reassured again that there wont that my account is paid up.
    Then I get a bill with cancellation fees... I direct them to earlier correspondence and they say it is a mistake, but they cant credit my account I will have to ring back once the cancelled dd bounces back and debt collection has started (I will get an email). Then when I ring again)they will cancel the charge apparently. He apologised for their system- as well he should!
    Im not sure Im out of the woods with it yet though- they probably still have room to mess up again.

    When I moved house I called JL to take the boradband to the new address. 2 weeks later I was expecting it to be working. When it wasn't I called to find out why only to be told the order had not been put through their system. I was told someone would call me to rectify this - they did not and when I called back to try and re-order the broadband package, I spoke to someone who was very patronising and not at all apologetic. I gave up and signed up with someone else as I felt the experience had been so poor.
