    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!

    Appalling. Happy to upgrade me then wring billing, late upgrade, slow Broadband and dead landlines. Try to resolve this today was cut off 3 times after 4 phone calls. Issue could not be resolved. Landlines still dead. Shoddy, poor and inept.........

    I had a no contract service with NOW for 3 years. They advised me that the price was increasing slightly. However they increased my bill by a mystery £15.

    Apparently they roll in a free calls package (even tough i don't have a landline phone) and then jack up the price. However this still didn't account for the increase.

    Call handlers were hard to get hold of, off-hand and unable to explain my bills. They also wouldn't refund over charged payments or rectify the issue without forcing me into a 12 month contract. They also continued to charge a call package after termination of my account and switching to another provider taking 3 months to refund this.

    Just appalling

    This is easily the worst broadband I've ever had. It keeps cutting out, and when it is running, it is so slow. I also had to buy an extender because it's so crap. Avoid at all costs, it's a bunch of complete rubbish. DO NOT BUY!!!

    Wish we'd read these reviews first. I've never had such an awful experience with a utility company. Two months delay connecting our broadband - no explanation other than to blame Openreach. A problem that other utility companies apparently don't have. I think I've managed to deduce that it is a computer system issue at NTv end. Messed us around for 2 months, no info, didn't even reply to emails to the complaints department. How they are allowed to operate in this industry with this level of non-service, I'm mystified. Don't bother, we only chose them because of lack of fixed contract. We've given up and gone with BT.

    Absolutely useless. The product is terrible and the speeds are just nonexistent. We have been with Now for a month and it feels like a year! We have already cancelled to go with someone else sue to how poor everything has been. The signal is terrible, we have had to buy 2 boosters for the house to try and get any signal anywhere, and still have incredibly poor connectivity. We have called customer services a number of times, they seem to just want you off the phone quickly and don’t really offer any help. They were supposed to send an engineer after the 4th call to them just for my wife to wait in all day and no one turn up. Having called them again, they eventually admitted that no one ever did come out. As I type this, no streaming services on my tv which is in the same room as a booster, can connect to anything so I will need to reset the hub for the 7th time today!! Avoid this lot at all costs.

    If you enjoy your broadband repeatedly disconnecting every day whilst trying to work from home and having every task uninterrupted for hours, then sign up to this rubbish. Otherwise I'd recommend you steer well clear

    Awful. Speed comes and goes all the time. Speed often so low it is unusable. Very hard to contact customer services. Avoid them.

    Terrible!!! Utterly appalling and not fit for purpose. I have lost count of the times I have complained over the phone and online.. they have now stopped responding to my emails as I have got to the point when I refuse to waist hours in the phone or following their frustrating procedure to switch broadcast channels on my hub then wait 24 hours to see if there is any improvement! I tried to point out that they are not fulfilling the terms of the contract have contacted Ofcom and have ended up just giving up as I simply don’t have the time to waste. Needless to say I can’t wait for our contract to end at the end of March. Having had endless issues from the very beginning!!! DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!
