    Terrible service. After 6 weeks we still haven't got broadband even though open reach had the line connected straight away. I've spoken to numerous people on the phone and it was only the last person I spoke to who spotted the problem. I can only assume the other are either badly trained or just incompetent. I cancelled and have now signed up with Virgin. Absolute waste of time, wouldn't go near them as a broadband provider

    Honestly, just don’t even consider Now Broadband. They might be cheap but if you can’t even use the internet, it’s a waste of money. When it is working you can only get broadband if you are in the same room as the router, and it goes down constantly. I’m currently on day 4 of no internet and they are now saying it will take another 3-5 working days for an engineer to come. Every conversation with their customer service is a run down of the many excuses why it’s not their fault or why they are not contractually obliged to assist. Please don’t waste your time and money with this company. Truly an appalling experience.

    The speeds I get are actually quite good but the connection drops on a daily basis. Currently I'm out of contract which is always a way for them to excuse charging more than double for the same service simply because you haven't promised further payments even with the months notice period.

    Yet during this time of higher charges the connection has dropped more than normal!

    Absolutely appalled by the service my parents have had. Despite calling 4 times to customer service problem hasnt been resolved. Promised call back from customer service. Still waiting 4 months later. Would avoid using this company for broadband.

    There is problems constantly it can work and then suddenly speed I'm getting us 0.56mb/s and then back again to 70. I've been told by two ppl at now tv that the routers they provide are old and unable to maintain the speed they promise but when trying to raise with someone to get a better router the managers insists that the information is not correct.

    Just left Now Broadband thankfully. Absolutely diabolical - don’t go anywhere near them. I’ve been with several providers, but I’ve never had broadband so slow which keeps disconnecting . Customer service absolutely terrible as well..

    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.

    Purchased NOW broadband and the whole experience from the start has been great. Broadband went live on the expected day with no issues at all. I live in a property that has the downstairs area in a basement so I wasn’t expecting much but to my surprise I get full WiFi signal every room of my house.
    So pleased, great service

    Broadband cuts out regularly. You can only contact them through live chat which is not easy to find. Ironically their staff seem to have great difficulty reading & answering questions. When you ask them to actually answer the question(s), they will just end the chat without warning. I very much regret signing up with them.

    After more than 10 years with Plusnet I moved to the Now Broadband ADSL service 10 days ago. Good communications from Now Broadband from the time of ordering to the change-over of service. New router arrived in plenty of time and the change-over itself went without issue. I have consistently received 20.5Mbps download speed and usually around 1.2Mbps upload. This is a clear improvement on what I was getting from Plusnet. So far, it does appear that Plusnet have done me a favour in their no longer appreciating loyal customers.

    Fantastic..

    Openreach Engineer turned up on time and worked cleanly and effectively fitting our new master socket and everything was up and running within the hour. Speed and Reliability.. mmm.. well we’re no experts on these things but despite speedtest sayjng we have a slower connection its actually more stable and reliable than our previous 100mg Virgin Broadband.

    Overall i’m very impressed, speed and reliability os very good, communications were slick and efficient by text and email.

    Positives

    Half Price of Virgin Media
    More Reliable
    Easier to switch between ADSL providers.
    Kept Phone Number previous supplied by Virgin Canle.

    Negatives

    -Now Router only has 2 Ethernet Ports, Virgin had 4, don’t need them for now but ..

    -Caller Display is not standard on phone service, took one free call and service is free when requested within 10 mins.

    Worst decision Ive made for broadband. If you're thinking about it,... Run away...run away fast.
    Intermittent connectivity. No customer support to resolve it.
    BT and Talktalk must be rubbing thier hands when customers go flooding back to them.

    All round poor. Web pages very slow to load - some never do. The connection drops out late at night. I have re boot any thing between 3 and 5 times. Lots of problems are to be solved by restarting the internet connection. This has to be done 2 or 3 times. I think I should be able to get out of the contract.

    The worst interaction I have ever had with a company. The company structure is specifically designed to prevent customers speaking with the people that can help them. They might be cheaper than alternatives but it is in no way worth it. With the time and hassle involved you will end up worse off. I wouldn't go near this company again.

    Genuinely impressed with it. I had sky Broadband previously, I know, same owner! With Sky I was only reaching around 3-6mbps but with NOW, I actually get my full 11mbps.

    The hub was easy to install and came in great packaging which was all easy to recycle.

    The hub is the same hub as the Sky Q one they provided. It’s just NOW branded. It was convenient as only had to swap out the AC adaptor and the hub itself. Then renamed the device and changed the password and it was all done.
    The only issue is when editing the hub details, it thinks you’re still logged in as an Admin, but if you restart the hub at the socket, it will soon figure this out.

    I was with these for 2 years, for the last 2 months I noticed my speeds were around 20mbps when I should have had 54mbps guaranteed.

    They then said I would need to pay £40 for a new router to fix this. I mean really?? I have to pay to fix there faulty equipment?!

    Needless to say I have switched to another provider.

    Just be carefull as the customer service is totally crap

    Received box early September, due to be live and working Mid September.

    Now pushing mid December, was supposed to have 2 engineers visit the apartment on separate occasions (none of which showed up) and still have no internet.

    Waste of time.

    Customer service is non existent. Trying to arrange engineer visit to move entry to house socket from window . Keep being told the team will get back to me and it does not happen . When I called again for 6th time I told I was down for a call out on day I am not available . Never bothered to inform me of a visit . Cannot speak to anyone in regards to arranging another appointment . Just told different team and I cannot contact them .

    payment system nightmare as not accept direct debits and card payments have failed on many occasions down to their system error despite putting in new card their system fails to still take payments, so i get late payment emails, since day one . This is the only company which charges a £1 fee to change card as far as i know and takes forever to return it. If ever. Everything automated or online which is not good if problems. When signed up took 2 months to sort connection problems. when contract comes up for renewal, moving on never to return

    NOW - MORE LIKE NEVER!

    We have waited 8 months YES 8 months for this shambles of a company to sort our internet!!!

    I would appreciate some help and a contact number for someone who can help us!!

    This company are awful we phone up and hear the same thing - we’ve updated your file and then no movement - we are at our wits end!!!

    We waited 6 months for a pole to go in and now just need to be installed!!!! Why is it so hard to get them to book an appointment to hook us up? We should be HIGH PRIORITY BY NOW!!!!!

    The useless people in the phone can literally do nothing. There’s no transfer to another team or anything!!!! I just don’t get it!

    Does anyone in here have a number other than the generic one we can call???

    Theives and liars. I don't believe for a second that this is an award winning service. Genuinely shocking customer service. I'm disabled and trapped at home and for that reason rely heavily on having internet. The day I was supposed to go live nothing happened. It was also the day my partner started an online college course which he ended up not being able to attend. I phoned up to try and see if there was anything Now Broadband could do to help, as when I signed up I explained my disability & how much I relied on the internet and they had assured me I would be connected smoothly.
    I called them and was told that they had known three days earlier I wouldn't be connected on time but no one bothered to contact me. They said they would pass me to another department who may be able to help. I was spoken to like dirt by the member of staff I was passed to, who kept raising her voice at me despite me remaining calm. She said it was my own fault for not getting 'business broadband'? and kept telling me I needed to just deal with it. I was genuinely taken back by the way she was speaking to me, it's almost like she was taking my internet issue as a personal insult and became very aggravated and standoffish. I explained to her that I was worried because I am disabled I am dependent on having internet to be able to work etc and she started mocking me with her tone. I told her I was taken back by her unpleasant tone and asked to speak to a different advisor and she left the phone off the hook for a few minutes and then put the phone down on me, it was clearly a funny joke to her. I called back and was passed around in circles trying to find a solution and kept having more and more days added to how long I would have to wait to be connected. Inbetween all of this I looked Into lodging a complaint with Ofcom who suggested I ask them for a deadlock letter which would state that there was nothing more that they could do- they couldn't even provide me with this within the month!
    Eventually I spoke to a lady who was much more understanding and told me that I wouldn't have my money taken or the contract started until I went live so not to worry- this was a relief. However the next day the money was gone from my account and I still had no internet! I phoned up to ask why they had taken my money without providing a service, when they had promised not to, and they couldn't give me a straight answer, I was told it would be another week until I was connected. At this point I was mentally exhausted with it and said I wanted to cancel and I wanted my money returned asap so that I can buy an unlimited SIM to hotspot from. They said I had to wait a week to cancel and up to four weeks for a refund! I can't even do a bank dispute because they have the charge as pending. I am absolutely disgusted. I now have no Internet for the foreseeable so I can't work, can't go to college, I have limited mobility so there really is nothing that I can do other than sit here and wait for them to resolve this and refund me. I can't even sign up to a new provider until they sort their mess out and give me the money they are holding back. Horrendous. I wouldn't recommend this company to my worst enemy.

    Always drops out. Reported faults, they admitted the problem was at their end and told me it would be fixed within 72 hours. A week later no broadband at all. If you ring customer service at any time of day or night there is always at least 20mins delay to be answered. Usually more like 40 mins. Decided to change provider as Now TV is RUBBISH.

    Things that have gone wrong:

    1. NowTV misdelivered my router, by spelling my name wrong.
    2. Openreach engineer could not connect our house to the fibre cabinet on the first visit.
    3.Open reach engineer did not escalate the issue to NowTV. Instead job was falsely marked as 'complete'.
    4. Upon our followup with NowTV, they realise the job is not complete and aim to schedule an engineer within 3-5 days.
    5. There has been no attempt to address the issue of the late connection or the false updates.

    Where possible, go with a better supplier. My prior one is hyperoptic, and their service was fabulous.

    Now tv have consistently failed to collect direct debit payments. After 6 months of this I eventually changed bank accounts. Today they have collected their payment. For the last few months the Internet stops working for upto an hour around midnight. Ive been fobbed off with 'System updates' 'denial' 'manager to call you back and 'You could always go elsewhere'. Its frustrating, the website is as friendly as a hangry guard dog, the line check useless! It needs working internet to test line issues, so if there's no Internet connection, it cant test anything! getting in touch with them takes the tenacity of a bounty hunter & the realisation that you need more magic than Disney to get a phone number out of that website & instead have to Google 'Speak to human NowTv'. Once you get through, the staff are good its the crazy Nowtv frame in which they work that is the issue. Nowtv don't do good will,apology or rectify mistakes permanently. The same issues happen each month. Tonight Internet went off at 23.54. It finally came back on at 00.44. Tomo I will battle to contact them again, they will in turn show me these actions are the definition of insanity. Time to change companies.. Id recommend teasing that hangry guard dog with a big steak a better idea than choosing them as your Internet provider, dont do it!!

    This company has the worst customer service experience ever! They lie to you, the never, ever fulfil the promise of callback. Swear if I wasn’t in contract I’d be off. They obviously train the staff to be blatant liars. Worst service and it’s as bad as what seems like dial up broadband! The company is an embarrassment

    We are students and have had a really bad time with this broadband. It constantly cuts in and out, we have rang up 7 times and it still hasn’t been repaired and are really concerned as exams are coming up and we really rely on internet. We have been promised products to improve the signal twice and have not received them, and keep getting told we will be called back and never are. Really disappointed.

    This is the worst company I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with. I am having endless problems with my broadband, so I tried their Contact system on their site (try it before you sign up!) which just directs you away from contacting them. No way to contact them at all through their "I'm having problems" prompt. The only way to get a number is to say you want to sign up, or cancel. But if you call it, their robot won't recognise your key presses when you go to the Technical Help department, and it hangs up on you. So if you go to the "Upgrade your package" telephone prompt, you are put in a long queue, and then they hang up on you before you get through to a human. This is disgraceful. For your own sanity, please stay away.

    Now let themselves down with the old routers the provide. Had issues since day 1 (multiple connection drops) which were never related to the broadband supply coming in, but devices connecting to their hub/router (basically if more than 4 things are connected at once you risk issues). I’ve had replacement hubs, long phone calls to tinker with settings, openreach visits to relay cable…you name it, but still the cutouts remain. Considering we work from our home this is a big problem! After 6 months we finally decided to switch elsewhere!

    If you’re a casual user, you might get by without issues - otherwise if you do you’ll need a better router, and Now won’t tell you which other router models work with their setup.

    Having a nightmare with this company over something which seems simple. I cannot access some websites I need to as they are blocked by NOW. I cannot update my preferences as my account does not appear to be linked to my broadband they tell me. Using the link they provided tried to link this but, although I am entering the correct information, it says I am not and can get no further with it. Have phoned their customer service who had no clue. Someone did phone me back and went through the same steps of trying via the same link with no success. She then told me someone from their IT would be in touch - three weeks ago and heard nothing. On their community forum it appears this problem has been ongoing for the past 3 and a half years. Now any emails or complaints forms I fill in are being ignored. That's their customer service for you - abysmal. I am out of contract in November, sent them an email to say as they cannot solve my problem I would like confirmation that if I move to another provider I will not have to pay any charges for early cancellation. Ignored.

    I have had absolutely no problems with Now broadband, There customer service staff are mostly based in Ireland are always very friendly and helpful. Speed is great no issues or any dropouts. Been with them years at the end of year year prices goes up they send the reminder out and always offer me a new contract at the same price or lower. Highly recommend you try them as they offer a 30 day cooling off period where you can change you mind which i really liked when first signing up.

    I was a returning customer to Now Broadband having previously not had an issue with them, however if you're a returning customer they cannot link your email address to your account as your email address will be linked to the original no longer active account. I have never experienced this problem at any other company.

    I pointed out that it is illegal to take payment from anyone without first providing an invoice, but this doesn't seem to bother them in the slightest and their only solution is for me to create a new email address just for them. I don't see why I should inconvenience myself to help them not to break the law. They just shouldn't break the law.

    Anyway, whilst that argument has been ongoing for 10 months, last week my Internet became intermittent over a 2 day period... 2 green lights, middle light flashing orange. Advice online suggests this is a fault with the line, but when I rang I spoke with the most unpleasant customer service agent whom suggested the plan I had was only strong enough to connect one mobile phone and wasn't enough to stream TV on. I had used the Internet for just that for over 2 years without incident so I a) don't see why it would suddenly cause a fault and b) cannot believe any Internet provider has a plan only strong enough for a single mobile phone and nothing else.

    The customer service agent was so horrifically rude to me that I actually believe Now Broadband cut me off to get rid of me.

    I now understand why they are in no hurry to solve the email linkage issue - its because returning customers is a myth for this company. Nobody goes back. Definitely nobody should.
