    Broadband is crap! Do not buy!
    I’ve called 20times regarding my speed and keep being told it’s at the levels expected despite my own speed tests being way under. I can’t have a teams call and upload or download at the same time and god forbid I want to watch a film on Netflix!! Customer services tell me there is nothing wrong so I can’t get out of my contract and if I want to leave early I have to pay off the entire contract plus a cancellation fee!! Disgusting service

    Ive just experienced exact same problem as previous post from Kai. Email received in December from NOW as my contract was ending, with choices which included do nothing and pay the same, This was confirmed further on in the email to keep same deal for same price. Only realised today have been charged additional £15.00 for last two months. Phoned twice to complain and ask for refund. Cut off both times when I asked to escalate my complaint. Their email is not only misleading, but also fraudulent. I think that the intention of their email is to knowingly deceive their customers. Im currently in process of looking for a new broadband provider. Absolute shocking customer services.

    Cuts out constantly, worse broadband I’ve ever had with equally useless customer service. Initially attracted to the 12 months contract but wish I’d avoided now.

    How petty can you get I've decided to go to a new provider leaving on the 19th of this month cancelled my contract last month by phone to give them enough notice no problem booted game console up yesterday the 2nd March to install a new game,the download speed was low went on to pc to check the speed should be 63mbps through wifi which I have been getting as my router is downstairs it is now 22mbps so just because I was leaving at the end of my contract they have been so petty to drop my speed down. Read the comments on this site and now agree with them if you are leaving NOW Broadband at the end of your contract give them the minimum notice you can because they will drop your speed down so it's virtually unusable will NEVER use this organisation again for broadband or any of their services including their TV services which I have also cancelled.

    Big scam company they advertise there broadband cheap to get you to sign up but then they dont supply the said speeds or service, in fact from day one my internet did not work at all. I tried to phone Now but it is impossible to get through to a real person everything is just automated. I then tried to email them but again just got automated replies non of which helped. I then tried the live chat on there website but turns out its not live at all its just a computer. The problem was at there end not mine and because i could not get hold of a real person to explain the situation i could not try and sort the problem out so in the end i had no choice but to cancel the payments at my bank as i was paying for something that i never got or had. Now i am getting emails and letters demanding money for charges for leaving early. Mybe if they had proper customer services where you can actually talk to a real person then mybe i wouldnt of had to cancel at my bank and leave early. Now breaks there own contracts and terms by not supplying the promised service, they take money from your bank for something they never gave and when you dare to cancel they will take no responsibilily and blame everything on you and add charges and threaten you with legal action. I am taking this to watchdog as i am pretty sure its illegal to offer a service then not give it but still take money and add charges when they havent even supplied the service in the first place, just think of the world we would live in if everyone did that. Avoid this company like the plague there scam artists.

    NOW is staffed by completely incompetent people, I've been trying to take over/open a new account as my housemate has moved out, and every person I've spoken to says a different thing. I've wasted hours on the phone to these unprofessional clowns. It should be simple and straightforward but they can't be bothered to train their employees and seem to think people have nothing better to do than waste hours on the phone to them. The most painful unprofessional experience with a service provider.

    Terrible and unreliable bband. Drops speed over and over again. Service is rude and very unhelpful. One of the worst customer experiences I can recall. Avoid

    Worst broadband experience I have ever had - and in general all providers are bad so the bar is low. Well done NOW broadband for being the worst. Internet connection is so weak my phone switches to 5G when I’m standing over the router. Customer service is abysmal and asking if the three lights show green and then saying there is nothing wrong when the signal is dripping out is unhelpful at best. Do not sign up with this provider, they are truly the worst.

    Underhand tactics to rip you off.
    Receive an emails saying if you do nothing your bill will be 23.50 pm. Received a bill for 43 yet customer service have no interest what so ever in giving me my 20 back. Reporting them to financial ombudsman and ofcom
