    I should have left when I had the chance, but was persuaded to stay when Customer Service promised they would be ablevto make the broadband cover each room in my small bungalow. Again, for the 3rd year running, I'm not able to get WiFi in my kitchen and dining room area. I used to be able to connect in the garden and on the driveway, but this is no longer the case again. They sent a different router and then proceeded to charge me for it despite the coverage issue being their problem. I complained to Customer Service and was just told to adjust the band I'm on - which has made zero difference. Each time I walk from my kitchen to my front room, I have to reconnect to the WiFi. Not ideal, Onestream don't care because they are getting paid each month for a crappy service that I can do nothing about. I definitely will not be renewing at the end of my contract this time.

    I was very happy with Alex B from customer service today. Onestream had made some errors with my account, which I only discovered because of a communication from a third-party vendor. These were pretty bad mistakes in my opinion but I was put in a much better mood by Alex's excellent customer service. He acknowledged the issues, discovered the causes of the problem and negotiated me a better deal going forward and a partial discount as a sign of good faith. He was courteous, polite, professional and sympathetic and gave me just about as much as I needed to feel satisfied with the outcome of the call despite the fact I now knew Onestream had failed me in the past. Essentially, I think Alex B was the perfect example of what a customer service representative should be. I don't review customer services often and many of them are awful but since this was an exceptionally good case I wanted to leave a review.

    I am in general satisfied with the internet speed etc. However, I do not understand their management policy in term of refunds. In the first month, I mistakenly paid the invoice twice. I requested them to refund one of the payment since they owe some money from me. However, they refused to refund. I found that some UK companies have this kind of malicious practice, and it seems that Onestream is one of such company.

    worst company. I had a contract for £ 22 a month but I never paid this amount because they immediately raised my direct debit to £ 26 a month and only for 4 months because after that I had to pay £ 30! luckily my contract is about to expire, but as a loyal customer I got a great deal for only £ 39 per month !!!!

    Appears cheap but hit you with lots of hidden costs... Monthly price went up 4% over inflation during the year contract, £250 'cancellation fee', AND it signs you up to McAfee malware free trial which automatically charges you for a yearly subscription when it expires!
    AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!

    Been without service for three and a half weeks. No one is doing anything about it. The few times they have tried to contact me, it has always been during my uncontactable hours - which I have reminded them of every time I have contacted them. Phone calls and online chat are pointless as when I finally get through, the advisers can only pass on messages - which are then ignored. Can't speak to anyone more senior. Official complaints have been ignored. Feels like a cowboy broadband provider: They take your money and ignore any problems that arise. Avoid at all costs. They are not worth the headache.

    Horrendous provider. If I could leave 0 stars I would. We have had nothing but issues since joining onestream, the service is poor, I set up with a different provider after less than one month of using the service as it was so poor and the customer service I have never experienced anything like it. We have been overcharged by £15/ £20 per month since joining and every attempt to contact them has been met with 0 resolution. Please for the sake of your mental health do not sign up to this provider.

    Beware - the weasel words of the 'free for a month' One Stream Assured / Kaspersky trials. I was charged immediately for the One Stream Assured so-called service as soon as I could check my bill online (given access to this 2 weeks after the 'installation' day, where no engineer showed up). Upon phoning to enquire about this I was sarcastically told that their policy is to charge pro-rata (another month in advance) so this was valid! I asked for this to be cancelled along with the Kaspersky, but I am now very concerned after reading about all the other people who have been been ignored by One Stream customer service and been billed anyway. I've only been with them 2 weeks and already know I will never use them again!

    Truly regret changing to this company. Within a week my broad band speed dropped to just 4mbps. An engineer came out quickly and diagnosed while the line was capable of delivering 90mbps the problem was with the router supplied by one stream.
    Customer service is poor, no weekend phone contact just online chat for which I’ve waited over an hour to connect to an agent. Weekday contact limited to 8.30-5.30 only.
    At no time have they delivered the 79mbps I pay for, it can vary between no connection, and then a maximum of 28mbps. Yet the same line with BT consistently delivered 79mbps.
    I cannot recommend this broadband provider. Poor levels of customer service, with no follow through so you are just left waiting to see what’s going to happen next, no emails, texts or any contact whatsoever. Add in truly awful broadband provision,this is a company to avoid.

    Beyond poor customer service!
    I purchased an 18 month deal in January of 2020 which i paid in FULL, around 2 months in onestream had taken out 2 months payments from my account, i rang up and explained that i have paid in FULL and that i should be entitled a refund (the refund came around 6 weeks after this). All was find for the most part of a year until Onesteam decided to charge me again once again! This time the payment charge included a late payment fee of £10, i got in contact and said that i have been in FULL for 18 months and that i am not eligable for monthly payments, i was advised to simply 'ignore' the text until, yet again! Another text, saying i am late on a payment, i got in contact with onestream again and said that once again i do not qualify for monthly payment to which an advisor named Tom said that 'the payment is due to inflation' EVEN THOUGH the text clearly states 'late payment fee' and now of course my account has been suspended so i am left without any internet even from paying the FULL AMOUNT.

    Absolute joke of a company placed an…
    Absolute joke of a company placed an order online for broadband and phone for £16.99 then when order processed it changed to full fibre and no phone had to pay £18 more which I reluctantly agreed as sold on really fast 75 plus speed, engineer booked for end of Jan then cancelled and rebooked for 14th of February who was a no show then had the cheek to say called but nobody was in which was a complete lie as nothing on video door bell plus 2 people in house waiting from 8-3 who heard nothing. The 3rd booking finally took place on 16th of March and installation completed or so they claim.

    Yet my internet speed is 25-35max depending on time of day, no digital phone calls available even though being charged for them and to make matters worse my other basic broadband and separate phone line to my annex has gone really slow internet and the phone line has been disconnected.

    I have raised 5 complaints in total now and had various empty promises from team leaders to complaints management and still left in this situation complete joke if a company stay well clear.

    I can’t even leave this company as nobody will even come back to me. Ombudsman notified who say I must get them to sort out the issue.

    Avoid this so called company at all costs!!! Had no service for 4 weeks and had no choice but to swap to BT to get phone and Internet back. They are now billing me for the weeks when I swapped to BT and threatening court action and debt collectors. I have written numerous emails trying to sort this out and get ignored. The only response I get is on Trustpilot. Your better burning your money as they did not provide a service to me and it will save your blood pressure and the hours of nonsense you have to endure from them. Sign up at your peril!!!!!

    Absolute rubbish. 15 days without Internet or phone. Don't ring back when they say they will. Ignore emails and never reply, as they have so many, I was told. I hazard a guess at complaints being made. Avoid at all costs, burn your money its less stressful than getting a refund from them. Ofcom here we come!

    I've been with the company for one…
    I've been with the company for one year, the current contact is due for renewal soon, so I phoned them yesterday to see if I can get the same lower price contract for new customers, which I found online. The guy from the customer service tried to sell me more expensive deal, and I refused. I insisted that I only will agree to a new contract if the price is the same as the one I found online. He told me he will speak to his manager and will get back to me, he then told me that I will get the price which I wanted for a 24 months contract, but I have to agree on the terms and conditions over the phone. Today I found out that I've been sold the more expensive contract and I CAN'T CANCEL IT!!!!!! It's shocking!!!!!!
    BEWARE!!! They will waste your time, they will go in circles, and in the end they will sell you what they want, not what you want!!!!!
    AVOID AT ANY COST, TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVISE.

    Unscrupulous, cheats, liars. Avoid at all cost.
    I joined paying £18 for first 6 months and by the end I was paying £42 a month. Extremely sly price increases (burying announced price increases in the fourth paragraph in an email). Then no emailed statements. Internet speeds were often awful - not unusual to have 2mb download speeds. Then I spotted they require the router to be returned after the contract ends - again buried in an email which could be easily overlooked, and so I dread to think what the fine would be if I didn't return it.
    Not sure how they're permitted to trade and sell their products as they do.

    Please do not undertake a contract with Onestream.
    During the contract everything was ok but when the contract was coming to an end it took me at least 5 attempts to get them to agree it was the end of my contract and therefore I was in my rights to end it on the specified date without charges being incurred and without having to provide exactly 30 days notice. I was then bombarded with calls and emails telling me I had to contact them regarding leaving as there were charges owed - after me having to deal with them on the phone, chat and raising a complaint I eventually got agreement all I was doing was ending my contract after the agreed term and therefore no charges were contractually applicable.
    They then post the end of my contract took funds from my account for a period of time I didn’t have a contract nor a service. I am still
    Awaiting a refund 2 months later even after countless contacts of me chasing and even raising a complaint of which they didn’t acknowledge any bad service or error - couldn’t even apologise
    In total I’ve spent in excess of 10 hours just trying to end my contract at the end of the agreed term !!!

    Terrible customer service and overall service. No email contact, online forms not answered, and waiting over an hour to get a hold of customer services who are rude, unprofessional, and speak in platitudes. Constantly trying to upsell you.

    Did not follow OFCOM's rule to contact prior to end of contract and then try to enforce huge increase in price.

    Avoid at all costs

    Do not sign up to this provider.

    The router arrived a lot later than promised. When it did arrive it didn't work and after eventually getting hold of one of the advisors, was sent a guide which didn't remedy the problem.

    Two weeks after I was promised to be connected I was told the router was faulty and I needed a member of their technical team to call me. This again didn't remedy the problem. After many attempts to phone them I decided to cancel my subscription. I was told a member of accounts would email to offer a refund, however this still hasn't happened and I cannot get in contact with them. I was 30 mins on the phone to them in one instance and nobody answered. I have sent numerous emails and received no reply. Terrible service !

    This is the worst internet company I have ever come across, customer service is non existent.
    First they try to charge you all sorts of add ons that you don’t want, then the signal and internet speeds are terrible. I live in a 2 bed terrace and sometimes couldn’t get a signal right next to the box.
    They refused to accept this and I was awaiting responses for weeks at a time.
    Finally i decided to cancel which they were not for allowing and told me I was wasting my time referring my case to the ombudsman. I ended up having to end the call as they tried to strong hold me into staying in my contract where i wasn’t getting a service!
    Now they are charging me £16 for cancelling my direct debit and a months bill (which they sent late and are now charging me a late fee for) after I asked for a final bill so i could contend it.
    DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY
    THEY WILL NOT PROVIDE YOU THE SERVICE YOU NEED AND THEY WILL CHARGE YOU FOR THINGS YOU DONT ASK FOR.

    This company will have itself shutdown, I have never encountered such incompetence. Engineer arrived before the router, found a fault that needed the router to test for Internet. After engineer spent 2 hours at my property had to leave. No Internet available, after having a on line chat I discover Onestream want to charge me £120 for a failed installment not on your nelly, failer was due to no router. They then conceded( as a gesture of goodwill!!) to waiver the £120 and would email me with a date of next engineer attendance. 24 hours later, silence, started the lengthy process of on line chat and it was like the conversation from the previous day had not happened. Customer service appalling, service appalling I have nothing positive to say about onestream. Cancelled the direct debit and told them I'll go elsewhere. Avoid at all costs, horrendously poor service I'd preferreda minus on the star choice.

    This is the worst provider I have ever had. No contact option readily available; no service available on a daily basis with disconnection lasting long time, but paying for unlimited superfast broadband. Shameful con artstry that I will have to report to Trading Standards if nothing is done.

    Ok. Cheap. Not as fast as it should be, and a few more drop outs than we used to get. But ok.

    Thankfully canceled service before it went live. I was receiving emails from them stating my details had been leaked on the "darkweb" and needed the McAfee packages. Was charged to C/C even though service cancelled. (Thankfully c/c company refunded)
