Reasons to choose NOW Broadband

  • No contract - Standard and fibre broadband packages are all available without a contract. You'll need to pay a set up fee, but can cancel at any time. It's great for students or anyone with a short tenancy agreement.
  • Cheap TV bundles - NOW Broadband offers a range of TV packages including Sky Sports and Sky Cinema. You'll make a saving if you buy them in a bundle with NOW Broadband.
  • Fibre packages available - NOW Broadband has fibre packages with average speeds of 36Mb and 63Mb.
  • Truly unlimited broadband - All the broadband deals are unlimited, so you can download as much data per month as you like.
  • Free router and TV hub included - All customers get a free wireless router, and if you choose a TV pass you'll get a free TV Hub too.
  • Smartphone and tablet support - You can register up to four other devices to watch your new TV channels on.
  • Easy switching from other providers - If you're already with a non-cable provider, like BT or Plusnet, the NOW TV team will handle the entire switchover process for you.

Possible downsides

  • Online tech support - NOW Broadband is predominantly an online service, so your options for customer support are more limited than other providers.
  • Connection fees apply - A one-off set up fee applies to new customers, and is higher on the no-contract option.
  • There may be cheaper options available - While the flexibility of no contracts is a big deal, it does come at a price. Both broadband and TV services from NOW Broadband are a little more expensive than you might pay if you're willing to enter into a contract with another provider.
  • Line rental charges are high - You need to pay for line rental from NOW Broadband. It's one of the more expensive on the market.

Reviewer Location Reviewing Date Ratings
so far so good (three weeks), switched from origin (different review), during sign up estimated speed was 4-8Mb/s (due to line), after 10 days (settling) period speed was just below 4Mb/s and going off once a day.
I spoke with customer services and after a few line checks an appointment was made for an engineer.
BT engineer visit next day - changed master socket, checked wiring, got the line reset - instant 7.5Mb/s and has been stable since. Pleased so far.

If you're looking at NowTV broadband and you're thinking that it's just Sky with a different badge...think again.

They have the worst customer service of any company that I've ever dealt with. If nothing at all goes wrong you might be fine, but if you need help with something you're going to suffer huge frustrations.

For me, the issue was constant issues with my payment details. There is a fault on their system that meant they couldn't seem to keep the details on the account, they kept being wiped off. This resulted in harrassing emails telling me i was overdue payments and having my broadband cut off at one point.

The crazy thing is, whenever they tried to take payments from my account they were able to with no problems what so ever, but for some reason their system just kept deleting my details.

It's hard to explain in a short space of text how dissatisfied I have been with them, so I'll just leave it with this: 4 months into my contract I'm paying £125 to leave early. They're just not worth the ongoing frustrations.

Chesterfield NOW Broadband  
signed up and excellent communication bordering on harassment for a few weeks leading up until installation day , apparently there was an issue with the socket for fibre broadband in the main signal box up the road even though he was an enginear he admited he has no idea what to do so the engineer said i will still get broadband but at a lower speed - LIES! no communication from now tv as soon as things went wrong . rang helpline and told we will answer ur call in under 5 minutes - LIES! actually had a wait of 15 . spoke to a northern irish gentleman eventually that was totally uninterested in the situation bordering on being rude saying i would receive a call from the back office team within 72 hours -LIES! after speaking again to someone today who was actually really pleasant i was informed they will not actually call u they will just send u an email in 3 days time .- LIes! the helpful rep today actually said the account is up for review in 4 days not 3 ! essentially if something goes wrong u are left hanging with very poor communication and them passing the buck to bt openreach or there back office team that u cant actually talk too! . i saw the price and thought its owned by sky so must be decent but up until this point have had a terrible experience with very little communication probably because i havent paid my monthly bill yet so they dont care. im sure some people have had a good experience but read the majority of the reviews this honestly is a very poor company with very poorly trained teams in charge .oh and one last thing i signed up for 25 pound a month fibre broadband which included line rental and free any time calls . guess what ? they still intend to charge me 8.40 for line rental even though no where in there 25 contract do they mention this of being a possibility of that exact price . even better than that there line rental is 7.99 so why would i be paying 8.40 ? i asked the call centre gentleman at first contact and he could not answer and adamant i am liable for this charge . i informed him ive read all 25 pages of my contract and perhaps he should read one of his company's contracts before making false legal statements . ive got no doubt someone somewhere will take legal action against this company at some point as its seems it is built on deceit . am i a disgruntled customer ? absolutely ! is everything i said true ? absolutely . use at your own risk ! and definitely do not switch provider until these jokers actually get things up and running or u will be left without internet like me with no idea when or if it will be resolved 1 shocking experience hopefully i hope u`ve read this review before signing up . i wished id checked the boundless amounts of bad reviews before i did !

Read a lot of bad reviews on this site so was a bit worried because I had already ordered a switch. This is not the first time I have switched providers over the years so I expected a loss of phone and internet for a few hours. 9am this morning, switched over, no interruption to service and getting max speed. Early days yet but happy customer.

Stay safe online

PC Security: 5 things you need to do to stay safe online

Posted on 2018-11-29 13:52 in Features Sky Plusnet Virgin Media Vodafone BT NOW Broadband John Lewis EE TalkTalk

As we spend more and more of our lives online - managing our money and doing our shopping - we're more likely to encounter problems. Viruses, scams and other cyber-crimes are continuing to become more common. So what's the best way to stay safe online? Let's take a look.

1. Install anti-virus software

Anti-virus software is a must if you use Windows (less so for Macs, Chromebooks, phone and tablets). It doesn't just protect you against viruses you can get though email attachments or dodgy downloads; it protects against all malware - any software designed with malicious intent. This includes nasties like spyware that steals your passwords, and ransomware, which locks down your computer unless you pay up.

Free anti-virus software from your broadband provider

A lot of the best broadband providers give you a free, or cheap, anti-virus subscription as part of their deal. If yours is on this list, make sure you take them up on the offer:

  • BT: with BT you get the McAfee powered BT virus Protect. You can install it on two or up to 15 machines, depending on your package. You also get Web Protect, which checks websites you visit are safe, and True Key, a secure password manager you can install on five devices.
  • EE: EE Home Broadband gives you a year's subscription to Norton Security Premium for up to 10 devices. After that it costs £39.99 a year, half the normal price.
  • Plusnet: Plusnet Protect, from McAfee, is free for Unlimited and Unlimited Fibre Extra customers. On the standard Unlimited Fibre deal you'll need to pay an extra £2 a month for your virus protection. You can install it on up to seven PCs.
  • Sky Broadband: on one of Sky's Unlimited deals you get a 12 month free trial of the McAfee Internet Security suite for up to three PCs. On the limited packages you get three months. Once the trial is up you can keep it going for £3 extra a month.
  • TalkTalk: with TalkTalk you get HomeSafe, an award winning online security package. This combines some virus protection and parental controls. It isn't a full anti-virus tool, though.
  • Virgin Media: Virgin Media Security is worth £39.95 a year, but is free to all Virgin Media broadband customers. It gives you full anti-virus coverage for up to three PCs.
  • Vodafone: with Vodafone you get a free six month sub to F Secure SAFE anti-virus package for up to five devices. After that, you can subscribe for £39.99 a year - half the normal price.
  • NOW Broadband: with NOW you get the Broadband Buddy service. This helps to protect you against malware-infected sites, but isn't a full anti-virus package.
  • John Lewis Broadband: John Lewis offers a full subscription to the Bullguard security package for Windows users.

If your supplier isn't on the list, there's loads of free anti-virus tools you can get instead. Bitdefender and Avast are among the most highly rated.

Malware isn't just a concern for those who browse the murkier reaches of the internet. Perfectly benign, mainstream websites can become compromised, and even ads can be crafted to try and do bad things without you even needing to click on them.

2. Keep your software updated

It's so tempting to turn off automatic software updates. They always pop up at the worst possible time, and if it happens to be a Windows update you can write off the next half hour waiting for it to finish.

Except, software updates are really important. Especially the Windows ones.

They don't just bring new features or improved performance, they make your computer more secure. Bugs in software can create the kind of security risks that malware thrives upon. Not only do they allow the malware into your system, they can also enable it to spread from one machine to another.

Updates shut down these vulnerabilities. At the very least, don't turn off updates to Windows or your web browser, such as Google Chrome. Better still, allow all your apps to update as they need to.

3. Learn how to recognise online scams

Malware is designed to exploit weaknesses in computer systems, but the truth is the weakest points of all are us, the users. You can lock down your laptop but it won't stop someone trying to trick you into handing over your passwords.

Phishing scams, as they're called, have moved on a lot since the days of the Nigerian prince who wanted to send you tens of millions of dollars. They're now a whole lot more sophisticated and difficult to spot. And it isn't just online that you need to be wary. You might get a text message purporting to be from your mobile network, or you could get a scam call from your broadband provider.

So, how do you spot scams? Here's a few tips:

  • Spelling and grammar mistakes in emails are a dead giveaway. Also, does the email greet you by name or a generic title?
  • Beware of emails demanding urgent action. Scammers try to scare you into responding, like telling you there's been a security alert on your account, or you're overdrawn, and you must log in to fix it.
  • Be wary of links in emails. Don't assume that the link is going to take you where you think it will.
  • Or just don't click links at all. Instead of clicking a link to one of your online services, manually type their address into your browser instead. Or pick up the phone and give them a call.
  • If it sounds suspicious, it probably is. If you didn't buy a lottery ticket, you didn't win the lottery.
  • Don't assume a fancy website means that a site is reputable. This is a rule to follow when shopping online, too.

Anti-virus software and web browsers will help you to sniff out phishing scams. What better reason to keep them up to date?

4. Use better passwords

We all know the importance of using strong passwords and not re-using them. But it can be difficult, since strong passwords are so much harder to remember. There are three things to try to make your life easier:

  1. Think in terms of passphrases instead of passwords. A sentence of eight random words is easier to remember - and type - than a password of eight random characters, but it's just as hard to crack.
  2. Consider using a password manager. Don't save your passwords in your web browser, use a dedicated password manager instead. This saves all your logins under a single, more secure password. With BT Broadband, the True Key offers exactly this feature and is worth trying out. Alternatively, take a look at LastPass or 1Password, both of which are free.
  3. Use two factor authentication. A large and growing number of services offer two factor authentication. When you log in you need to enter both your password and a second, unique code sent to your phone via an app or text message. It's a lot more secure.

5. Keep an eye on your privacy

Finally, keep an eye on how much information you're sharing online. If you use social networks you're probably sharing a lot more than you realise. Check the Privacy section in Facebook and other services to lock them down, and make sure your kids do this, too.

And speaking of kids, most broadband providers offer some form of parental controls that you can use to manage what people can see, or how long they can go online. These are worth setting up, but remember that they are by no means foolproof.

NOW Broadband Buyers Guide

Can I get NOW Broadband?

NOW Broadband runs on Sky's broadband network, which has widespread availability throughout the UK.

NOW Broadband says that their standard broadband service is available to 90% of households within the network area and their fibre broadband is available to 80% of households. You can use our coverage checker to discover whether you're in a NOW Broadband region. Even if you aren't you will still be able to sign up to one of the company's NOW TV passes.

What packages are available?

NOW Broadband is owned by Sky, and it offers a range of standard and fibre broadband packages with an optional selection of TV passes you can add to your package, giving you access to SKY Sports, Sky Cinema and other premium TV channels.

The packages include:

  • Brilliant Broadband with Calls - unlimited with average download speeds of 10Mb
  • Fab Fibre with Calls - unlimited with average download speeds of 36Mb
  • Super Fibre with Calls - unlimited with average download speeds of 63Mb

All the options are available on a 12 month contract if or a 1 month contract if you prefer. This comes with a higher connection fee.

All the packages are unlimited, so you can download as much as you like each month, and there are no restrictions on speed during peak hours (although, as always, speeds will vary due to other factors like how many other users are online at any given time).

All NOW Broadband packages are available without contract. If you sign up on a one-month rolling deal and can cancel at any time. Just give notice before your next payment is due. If you choose the 12 month Saver Plan instead you'll need to stay for the year, or pay an early termination fee if you want to switch before your contract has ended.

There are four optional TV passes and you can add as many as you want. The options are:

  • Entertainment Pass - includes 11 channels not available on Freeview, such as Sky Atlantic and Fox, plus over 250 box sets on demand
  • Sky Cinema Pass - all the Sky Cinema channels, plus access to over 1000 movies on demand
  • Sky Sports Pass - all the Sky Sports channels, with Premier League, Formula 1 and Test cricket coverage
  • Kids Pass - 6 dedicated channels for children

NOW Broadband also gives you the option to add a calls service to any of these packages. Your choices are Evening & Weekend Calls or Anytime Calls. Even if you opt to not take one of these you will still need to pay line rental.

Which package should I choose?

With the similarities between all the packages, the main choice is what speed you need.

The Brilliant Broadband package is likely to be good enough for smaller households, or those with more modest requirements. It'll be fine for one user watching Netflix or making large downloads, but may be too slow for several users doing the same thing together.

For larger households, where someone is always streaming, downloading or gaming, the faster Fab Fibre or Super Fibre packages are better for making sure no-one experiences any slowdown.

The no-contract option makes NOW Broadband an ideal choice for students who might only need the service for nine or ten months in the year. If you do choose the 12 month contract instead it reduces the one-off set up fee significantly, but the monthly prices remain the same. In either case you can change or cancel your TV passes whenever you like.

Points to consider before you choose

  • How many people will be using your broadband for streaming, downloading and gaming?
  • Are you a student, or do you live in short lease accommodation?
  • Do you want premium TV channels without a long-term commitment?
  • Do you want to watch TV on your phone or tablet?
  • Do you make a lot of landline calls?
Compare all NOW Broadband packages

What do I get when I sign up?

It's good to know what else is included in the deal, so you can budget for any extras you might need.

  • NOW Broadband Hub - Every broadband package comes with a free N-rated wireless router.
  • NOW TV Smart Box - Choose a NOW TV pass and you'll also get a free Smart Box for streaming your new TV channels. It sits below your TV and comes with a remote control.
  • Broadband Buddy - This basic security package enables you to activate parental controls, and also helps protect against malware-infected sites (but is not a replacement for anti-virus software).
  • Customer support - NOW Broadband is an online-only service, so customer is available via the internet.
  • Mobile device access - You can register up to four other devices, including tablets and smartphones, for use with your NOW TV pass. You can watch on two devices at the same time.

What are the benefits of NOW Broadband?

What are the main reasons you should consider buying broadband from NOW Broadband?

  • No contract - The one-month rolling deals make NOW Broadband ideal for students or anyone who doesn't want to sign up to a 12 or 18 month contract.
  • Commitment-free TV - Want to watch Game of Thrones or live Premier League football? NOW TV lets you do that without a long term commitment.
  • Unlimited usage - There are no download or speed limits on any of the NOW Broadband packages.
  • Fast uploads - Upload speeds on the fastest Super Fibre deal are 18Mb average speed, which is better than many rival providers.

What are the drawbacks to NOW Broadband?

What possible downsides should you be aware of before you sign up?

  • Set up fee - Signing up to a no-contract deal incurs a one-off set up fee.
  • TV can be more expensive - The biggest selling point of NOW TV is the lack of contracts. If you're happy to sign a contract you might find a Sky Broadband-with-TV bundle works out cheaper.
  • Online tech support - The tech customer service options for NOW Broadband are limited. You'll mostly be required to go online for support.
