Absolute garbage! I may aswell not even have internet. I'm paying for fibre and the connection speed is slow nothing loads and when I'm lucky enough for it to load it just buffers anyway! I definitely wouldn't recommend. Phoned customer services multiple of times and the phone cuts of! Definitely switching I shouldn't be paying for something im not getting

Well where do I start, the customer service team in the complaints department feel it’s ok to treat people like rubbish the internet service is a shamble along with the customer services, I would advise any and everyone to not sign up with the Plusnet service, when Plusnet were life mobile they provided a great broadband and mobile service but now they service is slow you regret ever signing up to this service they will provide a very poor service and they will try and talk down to you speak to you like rubbish and somehow get away with it

When will I ever learn, read the reviews first...doh
Well I didn't read the reviews and went ahead and switched to plus net, what a huge mistake that was, even worse is that I am saddled with them for 18 months. Slowest broadband I can ever recall having, customer service should be renamed as waiting endurance test. Run a mile or for ever regret having the slowest broadband available.

Cheshire Plusnet  
I've been with Plusnet for 3 years now. The first 2 year's were superb. But last year I had a problem with one direct debit payment & Plusnet cut off my bband within 24hrs.
When they eventually put it back on, 6 days later, it wasn't the same!
From that moment on it dropped daily. Signal strength was a joke!!
Back then when I phoned to complain my call would be answered within 4 minutes by a polite human - nowadays it can take upto 25 minutes before they answer, whatever the time of day. That's if they don't cut you off before they answer or if I'm complaining, they'll now cut me off mid sentence! So infuriating!!!
This has happened three times this week alone. They're queue free complaints line is a complete joke - I've never got a response from it??
I've also got a mobile SIM only deal with them. They're supposed to advise you of the best deal for your usage...I rarely use a mobile but it's essential for when I'm riding my motorbike, incase I breakdown. I was inundated with emails offering me 'Mates Rates' all costing more than my then deal - even though I'd not used it once in that month...they should have offered me a less costly deal - but they never ever did, because that would make them less money!
So I had to do it myself.
Yesterday, was the final straw!!
After waiting 40 minutes for my call to be answered, a stuttering buffoon asked me my details - no, good morning sir, how are you today...instead I was greeted with a yawn. After lowering my SIM only deal myself, things went from bad to worse. They kept on taking the old DD from my bank account aswell as the new lower one. When I complained & said I want my money back, that you've stolen(I don't mince my words) Their response was, we'll credit your account - unacceptable, I said!! I want my coin back not credit! We can't do that they said - I replied, nonsense! If you credit my account that means I'll have to stay with you for another 2 months, I said & I want to leave before then!! The line went dead, they'd cut me off again - I felt I was getting nowhere. So I called back later that evening, they offered me two identical options, just worded differently & neither put money back into my bank account! The person I was speaking to kept saying, please hold the line for two mins while I speak to my advisor...5+ mins later he'd return, no apology & with no answer to my query??
This continued for twenty more minutes - I put the phone down this time, as I knew it was hopeless going any further.
Offcom, here I come.
PLUSNETS strap-line is,(We'll Do You Proud) Well, that now needs drastic changing! Because they won't & don't anymore - my advice is shop elsewhere. Sky was no better mind! The bigger these companies become the worse they treat us -
SHAME ON YOU PLUSNET!
(deep sigh)

Cardiff Plusnet  
Worst broadband provider I have used in the last 10 years.
+ took them over 4 weeks to get broadband up and running
+ was meant to receive £75 cashback for joining. Waited and waited for it but when contact made with plusnet was informed my time to claim it had expired.
+ takes forever to get through customer service
+ customer service dont really care about what you have to say

Avoid!!!!

Better to pay more a month and join alternative provider.

Avoid!!!

hunstanton Plusnet  
AVOID!! Absolutely appaling service! Set up with them in a property I work in for special needs. Had to be set up in the name of one of the people I support but these are people who a. Can't talk or b. Have the ability to understand. Contacted them on the go live date as Internet not working only to be asked if they could speak to the account holder!! Probably the most unhelpful company I have ever had to deal with. No Internet from day one and they have the nerve to charge £216 when we want to terminate the contract.

Burnley Plusnet  
Switched to Plusnet from BT. Phone line disconnected/reconnected as scheduled but no broadband for four days. No contact from Plusnet. Finally used chat and agent said the activation was stuck in a queue. Obviously a queue they expect the customer to drive rather than any quality control service on Plusnet’s part. Agent chat disconnected while waiting for the agent to respond. Pathetic start. The lesson is contact Plusnet support immediately and constantly, don’t wait for their processes to notice that something’s wrong. Now connected, interestingly at more than 10mbs slower than the BT connection. Hopefully this will increase as the line is trained over the next 10 days. Meh.

Aberdeen Plusnet  
No broadband. Ordered broadband from plusnet. Sky has disconnected me and guess what, plusnet have failed to connect the service. Phoned customer services and apparently there's nothing they can do! Truly shocking lack of customer care. Wish I'd stayed with Sky.
