    The connection was dropping constantly, the speed was half of what was contracted. Would not recommend it to anyone.

    The attitude and the lack of help off this company is disgusting, over charges because of there mistakes and arrogant people on the phones, go with a different provider

    Reliable broadband but horrible 'customer service'. They have been charging me between £4 and £55 for the past 10 months without explanation and, apparently, they "don't have a complaints department." They have taken money from my account in breach of the Direct Debit agreement on several occasions and charged me for broadband when I couldn't use it for 3 weeks because of their ineptitude. Avoid.

    Shocking treatment from Plusnet, having been with this company for nearly 6 years they cut us off without warning due to their incompetence. Left without Internet and landline for 8 days now and they phoned mobile yesterday to inform us we can't be reconnected - something to do with copper fibre. Going to have to wait 10 days now for a new provider to install and we will lose our landline number also. I work from home and it has been an absolute nightmare. I would avoid Plusnet at all costs, conflicting versions of why we got cut off by different members of staff. Not truthful.

    DO NOT,I repeat DO NOT enter into a contract with Plusnet, they are no better than scammers.
    When I queried an overcharge to my account they said it was for phone calls to premium rate numbers......I dont have a landline phone.
    Three months into my contract the price has increased by inflation plus 3.9 %, apparently this is an annual increase so I can expect it to increase again in March.
    When I looked at their broadband offers for new customers the same contract is being sold for less than I originally paid and they unwilling to do anything for me. So I say yet again DO NOT ENTER INTO A CONTRACT WITH PLUSNET.

    Switched few months back and still regretting, customer service is not helpful.. had switched once before but didn't have current experience.

    Broadband drops frequently and they have the worst router from which I don't even get proper signal upstairs. Can't wait for the contract to finish.

    It's really slow but only if you're lucky enought to actually get a connection. Quite possibly the worst ISP in the country.

    I have been a plusnet customer for several years. From 2019 - Oct 2021 our household started having intermittent connection problems. A couple of times it's been the outside line to the property. However the engineers were out ASAP and fixed the speed issues very quickly. The other has been device problems, connecting to the internet and maintaining a consistent connection or web or social media sites not loading properly. I used my own router and moved back to plusnet's Hub1. This still was not much better. I now have purchased a new router which can handle many more devices (an AX3000 spec) router and replaced plusnet's default DNS addresses and googles with BTs and now all is behaving perfectly once again. I can't fault customer service, this has been excellent. Probably one of the best out of all the companies I've delt with. IM about to renew my broadband package and having looked at other reviews I dont think I'll be changing for a cheaper provider.
