    Really terrible experience with Now. I authorized a change to Now a few weeks ago and was told this would go ahead on 28th May 2020 and router would be sent out. Have had an external fault on my phone line and phoned existing supplier for repair and also asked them about the transfer in case this was the problem. They advised me Now have cancelled the transfer. When were you going to tell me?. I have renewed with existing supplier and sounds I had a lucky escape if this is your customer care.

    Poor reliability and speed, despite my best efforts and those of Openreach to sort the problems!

    NOW TV reports 40Mbps download speed but broadband.co.uk reports 13.06 Mbps. After phoning NOW TV it sped up to 40Mbps on NOW TV and 19MBps on broadband.co.uk .

    Highly unreliable broadband with poor service. Worst customer service ever received. Today I called up about a broadband issue. Turns out my hub isn't working, and they aren't going to do anything about it for 5 days. They said my broadband is 'not their problem' and I'm set to lose a week's wages as I can't work from home now. This last happened 3 months ago when I couldn't work for a week. They offered me a tenner as compensation....

    Probably the worst experience I've had with an internet provider. I normally avoid cheap deals with bad reviews but took a gamble this time, I wish I hadnt. We have had poor service since the start of contract and when contacting customer service, they tell us that they are providing the minimum contract speeds so nothng they can do, even if we are not receiving those speeds. My partner and I both need internet for home working currently, but we cannot both access at the same time. This has caused all sorts of problems for viedo conferencing, but NowTV are not inerested and when contacted, they again said its not their problem. Avoid at all costs!!!

    I was worried about going with Now given all the people whinging on this site! Initially wanted to go with virgin but can't access them at the new flat, everywhere else was minimal 18 month contract. Bit the bullet and went with Now as could get a 12 month contract- have had no issues. Simple set up, fast broadband, arrived early and activated on the day it said it would. Would recommend.

    Worst broadband experience all round.

    I went with now TV as the broadband package was the best deal at the time for a respectable speed of 35mbs.

    Wi-fi has been intermittent and cuts out randomly crashing computer games and leaving tv shows buffering over the last 9 months. It cannot handle more than one device at a time.

    Upon calling NowTV for technical support they said everything was fine with my network and told me to run a diagnostics test on their website but they did not know how I could navigate to it!

    Upon asking about cancellation they said I would incur a cancellation fee of £30.

    I've had internet with many providers and this has been by far the worst.

    I really regret having bought NOW TV Broadband. As we're currently working from home due to the virus, the internet is the one thing we desperately need working and for the last few months its given us nothing but grief. It's so slow that we can't even stream movies so I feel like I'm wasting money on tv subscriptions. I spoke to NOW TV over the phone and they mentioned there was a problem with the box so sent us a new one (customer service was actually quite good and box arrived promptly). But the second it arrived we had exactly the same problem. I originally chose NOW TV because I'd only have to pay £18 a month but its just not worth the money or hassle. I'd be happier paying more with another provider as long as it means we have a reliable internet connection. Please stay away from NOW TV Broadband, I wish I'd read the reviews before buying!

    AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!

    Its very rare a company gets it so wrong and Now Broadband have got it terribly wrong! When signing up to the service I was aware they said they cannot guarantee speed and I remember that but the problem was the wifi signal. You basically can only get a good signal in the same room with nothing in the way. You can imagine in a house you can't get good internet in most other rooms.

    Trying to get through to them was a joke and it took many attempts and ridiculous waiting times only to get cut off and then start the conversation again. Furthermore, no matter how many times I told them that it wasn't the speed they would feed me a line and keep testing the speed.

    Finally someone understood and told me I needed to buy a booster. I though that was a joke because they were not providing the service. In the end it took several months and a third party regulator to get £25 credit after suffering 8 months of poor service.

    So in conclusion, they may not give you a service, the customer service uses no common sense. they are ridiculously hard to get a hold of. If you want more proof there was a national news article of something terrible that happened because they have no common sense or sympathy. No willingness to try and fix things properly.

    I switched from Sky to Now Broadband a week ago, Sky had hiked their prices and and lengthened the contract to 18 months so time for a change. I cannot get fibre broadband in my village so standard broadband it has to be.
    The switch over was very easy,kept my phone number, router arrived recorded delivery in plenty of time for start date, plugged router in at 8.30am on morning of start date and was connected straight away. Been going a week now and getting average speed around 14Mb which is good for my area.
    The offer of £18 per month which includes broadband and all inclusive calls is a good deal and I am pleased to have taken this up. No comment on Now TV as I do not have it.
