Utterly useless. No service for 2 full days. fault logged online but beyond an acknowledgement zero information.

They had the cheek to ring me and invite me to renew for another 12 months today - the caller didn't even have the tact to realise I might not be a happy customer and seriously thought no contact at all and no service for 2 days wasn't going to put me off.

If you expect the name will give you any customer service at all - forget it.

Hopeless.

Loughborough John Lewis Broadband  
I have only signed up with John Lewis and so far so bad. First off they had to send an engineer out to connect a phone line which was already connected. Secondly they didn't process my order delaying my line activation by 3 weeks. They now have just told me they need to send out another router because the first one they sent out was dispatched 5 days ago and it hasn't arrived. When I was with Sky and the router was late they put it on priority First Class post but apparently the customer service representative at John Lewis couldn't even do this. Thought John Lewis was a trustworthy brand and a company with integrity. This shoddy service leaves a lot to be desired. AVOID AT ALL COSTS

If you 're looking for a pricey, slow and totally unreliable service where the JL managers refuse point blank to even discuss the absence of a broadband connection with you but still take the money then JL broadband is for you. If not don't touch it with a barge pole.

Absolute CRAP - “we have monitored your cinnection and everything is OK...” Then why can we not have a consistent connection! We are “off-line” most days now - John Lewis we expect better from you... This is the worst internet provider on the planet. The sooner my Contract is up the better.

Cumbria John Lewis Broadband  
Offers a lot - it is very poor on delivery - poor on Customer Service - this week I have had no response to queries or complaints - service calls are ALWAYS experiencing high call volumes.
Service depends on who you get on service support..
JLB upgraded their server and we lost broadband for two days - WiFi keeps dropping and now we have no wifi printer connection.
I wish I had not joined John Lewis Broadband.

Cumbria John Lewis Broadband  
Still in the process of getting connected. Just received an email referring to 'my Query' (plus ref number) re have I received my router ?. I didn't submit a query - turns out 'my' query was generated by them. The email then asks me to confirm receipt 'by replying to this message'. Two lines down it says 'We're happy to hear from you, but instead of replying to this email please use "Contact us"' (with a link elsewhere.)

One minute later I receive another email saying that since they are unable to answer my Contact Us Query it is now on hold for 3 days.

Like something out of Kafka. The Tech lad I phoned was blissfully unconcerned.

Do John Lewis know their hard earned reputation is going down the toilet, as a result of this ill-advised diversification and the use of third party provider ?

Lochinver, Sutherland John Lewis Broadband  
So many negative reviews! I thought I'd add a positive one for variety. I moved from BT to JL for price reasons - JL works about about fiver a month cheaper, partly because 1571 and caller display are free, which they're not with BT. An Openreach engineer had to fit a new incoming box and modem, and hadn't done a JL one before so I had to help him work it out by finding out what to do online. Speed and reliability are merely OK, but merely OK is as good as it gets anywhere in my area. I think JL broadband is a good deal, and I like their no-nonsense straightforward approach to pricing. The latter is the only real difference I can see between getting your Plusnet broadband via JL or from Plusnet direct.

Isle of Wight John Lewis Broadband  
OK as long as you don't need customer service. They locked me out of their email account due to a problem they discovered. A 15 minute wait on the phone (not too bad I suppose). New password issued. Tried to log in but it didn't work. Another call to "customer services". I was ot typing it in wrong so transferred to tec services. 45 mins later my battery dies. As I'm up at 5am I thought I would get through. High call volumes at 5AM !. By 6 AM my phone died. Saga continues...... John Lewis seems to have joined the race to the bottom that is UK customer services. We've had your money now sod off.

Malvern John Lewis Broadband  
Left BT after years of shocking service and Internet speeds that gradually dwindled from 15 to 8 megs. This I was informed was normal operating levels for my line by BT. Despite two years of operating at 15 megs?

As a new customer to JLB very patient and accessible (and understandable!!) Customer Services. THREE engineers visits later 18 meg broadband returned.

Thank You John Lewis Broadband!

King's Lynn John Lewis Broadband  
How can anything be linked to John. Lewis that is so poor at basic customer service !
Told my speed between 6-17 mbs was only 10.7mbs which in their eyes is more than acceptable - funny they won’t reflect this range in their prices
They refuse to fix speed problems, I was advised by tech support that as my telephone point switch was an issue to remove the front cover and has been like this ever since
Told by tech support that a new router may not fix issue but have to sign a new contract to even try
Can anyone recommend anyone better than these cowboys?

Home broadband John Lewis Broadband  
I've been with various different broadband companies over the years, with mixed results, but John Lewis Broadband, and by extension Plusnet, the actaul provider, are without a doubt the worst provider I have ever seen.The speed is incredibly unreliable, constantly fluctuating an average of 5mbps to 0.2mbps in the space of minutes, having short periods of stability followed by days or weeks of abysmal service. Customer service is about as reliable as the network itself; it can take several days to get support, and when you do they always say the same thing about resetting things on their end, only for service to continue as normal... which is to say awful. I'm lucky enough to be the only member of my household who has managed to get a wired connection to my PC, and although that can reach decent speeds it will drop on a whim, and plans of gaming with friends can quickly devolve into disappointing night spent unable to connect to anything. The upoad speeds are so bad that attempting to upload anything, even small files like oictures and even long messages can cripple the entire service for several minutes. When trying to upload larger files the entire service is unuseable as it send your important files 1kb at a time; I almost failed an important university module when it took 6 hours to upload half of a 1.5gb file before the service cut out completely and it had to start again. Whether you want this service for work, school or leisure I can whole-heartedly reccomend you look elsewhere and forget that John lewis even supplies broadband... God knows they don't seem to remember themselves.

Manchester John Lewis Broadband  
Two weeks in and I am really happy to have changed to JL from talktalk. As far as reliability is concerned, I see no difference and I am happy that it meets my needs.
Customer service is 100% better, I did need to contact them on the day I changed over and the problem was solved straight away by a very courteous young man. The change over was smooth ad clear, everything happened as they said it would.
I have only one complaint and that is the little booklet that came with the modem could have been better. I could see they had tried to make it straight forward but I think the problem is instruction books are written by people who wholly understand the product. It would be such a simple thing to do if they ran them past the sort of people who might have a problem. Quite inexcusable though, was the picture of putting the plug together, it was back to front! Having said that, I always seem to have a gripe with instruction manuals and if I wasn't retired would consider making it my job to put them all to rights!!

Chichester John Lewis Broadband  
After all the bad comments I was really worried by my decision to change from BT after years with them and increasing dissatisfaction. However one week in at this stage I can only say how pleased I have been with the handover process and the service so far. If anything the broadband speed seems to be a lot faster and more reliable but that may be because of an up to date router replacing the old BT one.

The actual handover was incredibly smooth. The router was delivered a few days before the actual date and the phone was transferred first thing in the morning on that date. The broadband took longer so I phoned mid afternoon just to check there were no problems. The phone was answered pretty much straightaway and I was assured by a very helpful gentleman that I would be connected by midnight - as stated in the documentation. This was the case. It was really easy to connect the new router following the clear instructions first thing the next morning and I then breathed a big sigh of relief. So far so good with no interruptions in the service.

Neither super fast nor fibre broadband are available in my area so I can't comment on the JL delivery of those services.

I don't use JL email nor have I had my first bill so that may be an issue ahead but for the moment I am really pleased that I changed to JL. I am saving myself over £20 per month compared to what I was paying previously.

London John Lewis Broadband  
This was the worst experience I have had in several years of switching Broadband providers. I left JL after one year in November to another provider : they have continued to bill me via direct debit six weeks after the service was closed with no explanation about why they are continuing to take money. The only way to stop this has been to instruct the bank to cancel any further payments to John Lewis .

Once the account was technically closed on 21st November, any method of contact about the account disappears leaving only the option of a call centre looked after by Plusnet. I have now done this explaining the situation three times which is frustrating. Despite three phone calls of getting on for one hour, this is still not sorted. Very poor customer service John Lewis and PLusnet .

We've had John Lewis broadband for a week now and it's been off more than it's on. We've had one good day's connection so far. We switched from BT because it was woeful and we could never understand their Indian call centres but overall, it's looking pretty good compared with John Lewis. They should have stuck to homewares.

Absolutely terrible. I had to call them daily to get them to do their job! AVOID AVOID AVOID! It took over 4 weeks to get a new service up and running and that was with me calling them using my mobile to get anything at all sorted. They offered a measly free broadband for one month about £4.50! Constantly told it was all activated and it wasn't. Finally now have my service but will definitely ditch them once the 12 months has runout!

Unbelievably awful. We were due to move house TODAY and now have to stay put for another month, costing us thousands, because this dreadful company cannot have our broadband set up in our new home, despite having PROMISED to do so. My daughter has important exams and needs the internet during revision. We will now be moving house right in the middle of her exams. Their 'customer service' is just a load of platitudes. Why is an otherwise reputable brand destroying itself like this? Won't be buying from John Lewis, Waitrose etc. from now on. Avoid avoid avoid.....

Richmond John Lewis Broadband  
Unbelievable - no customer service whatsoever. Made arrangements to change from my existing provider as this appeared cheaper.
So easy to sign up to a contract. I was told an engineer needed to come to my house to re-install my old BT landline. Arrangements made and paid by me upfront. Within 12 hours had message to say there was a problem, and I needed to phone them. spent ages on phone listening to horrible musik. Could not get through. Went to new customers instead and through immediately. They said it was their computer problem and they did contract again and told me they would let me know when engineer would come to my house. Then got message Quote 'engineer will come to your property on .....'. So back to trying ring them again. Went back to option 1, 'New Contracts' Very officious, rude women told me she would transfer me to option 4 and back again to musik....
Then I did option 5 to cancel. Pleasant gentleman said no need for engineer to come to your house, so I asked what the hell I had paid £49.99 for? No answer to that. So I cancelled. In the three days since I made the original enquiry about changing, I have sat on the phone for about two hours for nothing. Cannot believe how dire this has been. So glad I have stopped it in time.

What a shame that Plusnet who supply John Lewis broadband is giving John Lewis such a bad name. I know from being a John Lewis customer for years and have worked for the company that they do not treat their customers like I have experienced with Plusnet over the last 6 weeks that I have been with them. I only signed up with them because of John Lewis's good name and didn't know anything about Plusnet.
Plusnet add says 'We'll do you proud' No Plusnet, you don't. A note to John Lewis: Dump Plusnet and get a broadband and phone company that can deliver the standard of customer satisfaction that we have come to know and rely on with John Lewis.

Norfolk John Lewis Broadband  
Not sure how this works but used Waitrose webmail for years, mostly ok -easy to use etc but did sometimes keep logging you off. Something to do with the 'platform' it was on. Suggested use JL webmail same log in but hated it, so continued with Waitrose webmail until eventually it ceased.
JL webmail is rubbish, too complicated, tiny writing, hard to use etc etc etc
About time it was updated to something nice and simple to use and more reliable especially as so much is done by email now.
Would leave if it was easy to do!

London, Greenwich John Lewis Broadband  
TERRIBLE experience. Had to chase to get it set up again and again. Finally live and 3 days later they "accidentally" cut me off - no phone no broadband! The support line has a wait time of minimum 30 mins but usually longer and I held for ages on 4 separate occasions. They couldn't reinstate the line for over a week due to their error. I've asked other providers and it will cost £59 to reinstate my line and I have to have a new number too - unbelievable inconvenience. Worst of all they just didn't care less. So now I have no BB for another 7 days!
Don't risk it with JLBB until they have got their act together!

Absolutely dire service from John lewis. I've been getting speeds of 0.3 for 3 weeks now with no resolution of the fault. Customer service team are pleasant to deal with but so far have totally failed to fix the fault. They seem to put the query on hold every few days which adds further delays.

Not what i expected from a company such as John Lewis, however it very evident when contacting them and being passed to either the technical or provisions dept that you are talking to Plus.Net personnel, especially when they respond " Plus Net, how can I help you".

They have in only a matter of days screwed up the billing process by billing me false invoices for which i have not received the services or that are included in the package i took. Adding to this the fact that i didn't pay them they have now restricted my service to what appears to be 0.1mb.... Not impressed, having been a customer of Plus.Net too I will most certainly consider not going to either of these suppliers in the future, I just wished i read and paid heed to the reviews previously.

I am now one dissatisfied customer.

Dorset John Lewis Broadband  
I ordered JL fibre broadband on 10 August and was told that my broadband would transfer from BT to JL on 24 August. 21 August arrived with no router and no notification that the router had been sent. I phoned JL customer service to be told that the automatic router ordering process had failed. Apparently this was a known problem and JL were working on it (in which case why did JL not put a manual fail-safe in place until the automatic process was fixed?) I was told that the router would be sent out immediately but that it would take up to 5 working days to arrive. That would have been four days after the transfer date and it would have meant a Bank Holiday weekend with no broadband. If a company screwed up this badly before the service even started, it didn't bode well for the future, so I cancelled the order. Customer service were efficient enough when I contracted them; but they seemed totally disinterested in the fact that their (or more likely Plusnet's) systems were so unreliable.

Terrible - avoid. The connection has been consistently poor. Often disconnects for no reason, Skype calls a nightmare. Upload speed virtually non existent. Switched to quality fibre provider now and the difference is astounding. Customer service poor - JL claim they never received our order to change suppliers despite BT engineer coming out to switch on new provider. We are effectively paying 2 suppliers for 2 months and despite repeated phone calls I cannot get this resolved unless I pay an additional £25 disconnection fee! Surprised that the John Lewis brand has such poor customer service.

Switched to JL one month ago. Everything fine till last week when broadband stopped suddenly. I was using my own router so plugged theirs in and still no internet. They sent bt engineer on premise if it was internal problem I would be charged £65.
Broadband came after 5 days and was in house for 4hrs till finally I've said nothing wrong with their end and to contact JL stating their had been a few problems in the last couple of days with JL despite teaffic from house to openreach being perfect, and suspected JL had changed/deleted usernames or passwords which allowed access to bt network.I rang JL and advised them of this and he generated new password for me to enter into router admin pages and voila it was fixed thanks to my intervention and thoughts of the bt engineer.
However, next day I had no broadband so rang up and was told there was no issue as it was fixed. I advised the router had no broadband lights on meaning there was no traffic at all and after he read his notes said that JL had authorized bt to cease and restart the service to try and fix. Obviously the rep I spoke to forgot to update the account stating it was fixed so now have to wait 5 days for a new line, when there was nothing wrong. Absolutely useless and technical supervisors narrow minded not to accept their ineptness. Luckily I was on a monthly rolling contact so BYE bye JL.

Newcastle John Lewis Broadband  
We have been with JL Broadband now for just over three months and signed up to this on the basis that it was recommended by Which? as broadband provider of the year. The broadband service itself is provided by PlusNet - customer service is extremely slow (on average a 20 minute to their customer services hotline every time) and the connection speed is awful. My partner works from home and needs fast broadband to upload and download services from the internet. JL Broadband has massively hindered the efficiency of his work and we are having to restart our router every single day due to the fact that the line drops frequently to about 0.26MBPS which is completely unacceptable. I would not recommend this broadband service to anyone and we will most certainly be cancelling our subscription when the contract is over.

Islington John Lewis Broadband  
Driven by flood of negative reviews seen here, and my (short so far) experience with JLB, I decided to write my own review as our experience with them so far is very positive.

Context: We just migrated off BT 80MB (then, now it's 66MB only, I think?) Fibre and telephone service.I had been with BT for 7 years, moved house three times [South East & London] taking them with me every time and had no issues with them at all except once, when they were not able to move me as they had internal issues with their CMR and they just let me go then allowing for new (nice) deal to be put in place. Broadband and telephone service was operational at all times and I never had to contact them about any technical issues either. So my worry when we decided to move was that we will effectively break something that works splendidly well (although for a price): We decided to move based only on the extortionate price we had to pay - with JLB our monthly price is effectively less than half now.

I ordered JLB Broadband & telephone service on 22/09 online - got migration date as 05/09 couple of hours later(contractual two weeks). Zyxel router turned up couple of days later and replaced BT Hub on the day of migration. Phone line has migrated early in the morning, with broadband following few hours later. As I was at work then, I just checked with JLB that all is good and witnessed the same once we got back home in the evening. Router was operational, and it was just WiFi / Ethernet configuration that I had to do. And that was it.
Needless to say that all these steps were followed up by text messages & e-mails.

So it's 72 hours for us just now: telephone service works as it did, broadband speed is exactly the same as it's been before. The only extra thing I did myself was to voluntarily upgrade the firmware in the provided router - and fiddle with its settings.

So, I am really not sure where all the negative comments are coming from. I also cannot say anything wrong about their staff either.

I can only guess that some negative experiences may be related to exceptional circumstances: dodgy wiring etc. but perhaps also the fact that it's far easier to write negative rather than positive review.

Last but not least: I shall update this review if circumstances change - especially after first 12 months.

If you're considering moving to John Lewis broadband because of the brand reputation for quality and customer service, THINK AGAIN. The move into phone and broadband must have been a disaster for JL and if I was in charge of brand I'd be getting out as quickly as possible. As their customer I will be getting away from them as quickly as possible. Service is AWFUL. Response to dealing with problems is AWFUL. Yes their call centre is based in the UK but I've seen more competence from call centres everywhere else than I've had from John Lewis. And it's only possible to get them on a free phone number, fine if you've got a landline but if they've cut off your landline and you're calling from a mobile you'll spend a fortune. Which they won't refund you for. To sum up JL broadband in three words: AVOID. AVOID. AVOID.

I moved to John Lewis broadband from Plusnet to take advantage of their first year discount. They transferred me three weeks before the agreed date, (and before my Plusnet contract had ended), and have double charge me for my first month. I have tried to contact them using their website for over a week ( as I didn't want to wait half an hour on the phone) and despite claiming a 24 hour response time have received none. I even logged a complaint about poor service and have received no reply. Like other users, I am amazed that John Lewis have compromised their brand name with such poor quality service.

Ordered the fibre then read some pretty negative reviews so was very anxious. Switch over day arrived and I called customer services once. They had to turn something on at their end that should have been done and all worked fine. 5 minute call in total. 3 weeks in we've had no problems.

For the higher price we expected a better customer service from John Lewis however the service is no better than a much cheaper provider. Yes you speak to a uk call centre but only if they answer the phone - after about 5pm it will take an average of 13mns to get an answer. Overall all companies seem to be the same -at the mercy of Openreach and therefore you should just choose the cheapest provider.
