    5 times higher latency then my previous Vodafone broadband. I used to be able to interact with certain cloud applications with a 10 millisecond delay which was great for working remotely and gaming but unfortunatley with now broadband it has gone up to 50 milliseconds which is pretty much equivalent to mobile data latency. Also 50mbps sound great but not when its 3mbps to upload files.

    Terrible reliability. I lose internet regularly and struggle to regain it. The call centre is not helpful. Would not recommend.

    Terrible, changed to now tv 6 weeks ago, already stopped working and have to have an engineer visit, taking time off work to be home so they can come and fix the broadband that really isn't what they promised when I signed up. Don't waste your time or money

    Simply the worst, the call centre tried to get me to change my phone settings to add my card details, then said to order online and cancel my line, and there I waited for two weeks with nothing. I called after 10 days because there was no router, only to discover issues with my order. Luckily, I called Sky, and they were able to cancel my cancellation. After three calls and many wasted hours, I lost £10, and the complaint put in had no outcome. Called back in only to get the most useless call center in he entire world, sending me around. Either there is a ghost number scamming people, or Now Broadband is simply not set up to deal with simple broadband - don't get fooled by the price. You will be spending hours trying to get it set up right - frankly, I've lost days of earnings plus £10. Don't use them.

    I have had Now Broadband for a 24 month contract. I was paying £23.50. When my contract was coming to an end this month they emailed saying what my options were. One was do nothing and no cost sgainst it but I assumed inflationary increase. Boy was I wrong. My DD went out yesterday and they had the cheek to double it without even notifying me! £46 for mediocre broadband connection.
    I tried to log into my account but it kept showing an error- a logging in error on laptop and a sorry you can’t view or amend your package right now error on my mobile! Suspicious!
    I complained and they admitted the email I received was ‘confusing’ and they have put measures in place to address the wording for future customers - lucky them! No reimbursement for me! I have cancelled and switched of course!
    I had to buy two extenders for the house as their signal is poor so not value for money even at the £23.

    Just as with others on here, these jokers sent an email in October 2023 saying that I should do nothing if I want to stay on the same price I’m on. Of course, I did nothing and looking at my bank statement 6 months later, I noticed they have been charging me an extra £23 per month for nothing.
    When I contacted them regarding this, the rather arrogant and rude advisor told me that the best they can do is add a £30 credit to my account on the condition I took out a 12 month contract!
    Haha! Honestly they think we’re absolutely stupid. Avoid them like the plague. As I got nowhere I submitted 6 months worth of chargebacks to my card provider to dispute it. I was only looking for the additional money which had been stolen from me to come back, but the bank has fully refunded all 6 months in full. Stick that in your garbage Now shoddy broadband pipe and smoke it.
    Honestly, stay away from this bunch of misleading crooks, they won’t help you and will do all they can to take your money and run.
    Anyone else in this situation I suggest you submit those charge backs ASAP

    Again like other reviews they sent an email saying "do nothing and continue with your existing membership for £23.50 per month" and then charge me £46.50. No where in that eamil does it state that they will charge my account £46.50 per month. They hide behind wording at the end of the email that say "Dont forget your NOW broadband and calls options are available until 15/3/2024. However it is also possible to contact us after this date" - how is that justification of £46.50? Steer clear of this company - they customer services team leader in India said "what do you want me to do about it" - when i explained send clear emails with clear charges to customers he didn't get it - he just said "what do you want me to do about it" NOW are a rubbish company that dont communicate clearly. The initial customer service representative I got through to kept saying he could not hear me when i asked for the explanation - strange that he could hear perfectly when he was trying to lock me in for a further 12 - 24 months!!! AVOID AVOID - they will steal your money and not communicate clearly - don't suffer the frustration as a customer like I have

    Tried to set up now broadband as the cheapest, website makes you put in bank details and doesn't leave you able to request a set up date, but to set a date for engineer to visit, which now realise is the date, but you can't change the date, request set up date everything leads to calling customer service which is abroad hard to understand, where they keep you waiting while they ask colleagues, update your account, then can't do this simple request think this is a scam to keep people on phone for long time and then results in telling you to call back in a day or two, ended up just requesting cancellation and asked for email to confirm cancelled, didnt get anything, only a customer survey which I completed. I am a rational person and wanted cheaper broadband but now reading other reviews realise that any problem would result in calling the helpline and really shoddy rude 'service' and I hadn't even got to starting with them, however doing this enabled me to get a better deal from my current provider as they had gone to the step of requesting having the same number from my provider.....DONT DO IT!

    At last with Plusnet. Funny that Now said the upload speed was excellent, it must be me… there is nothing they can do… I was instructed to raise the router/ take it away from the radiator/ get nearer to it.. etc etc . For 4 months I have paid for a service that did not work although Now couldn’t do anything. They closed the line so it’s taken a while to change to Plusnet but it is lightening quick. Amazing instant change!!!
