I have been a Plusnet customer for 12 months of an 18 month contract. The service is dreadful. The customer support which they claim is so awesome is a joke. You get the same support as any other ISP - every problem is apparently solved by doing hard reset on the router, losing all your settings, only to find nothing is improved. On two occasions, their agents simply hung up because I would not accept following their idiotic problem resolution sheet to address issues that were blatantly not connected with my end but are (and remain) problems with their own infrastructure. I also have Sky Broadband which has for 5 years performed faultlessly (a different building). I would not touch Plusnet. For all the advertising hype they are a complete shower.

Have been with Plusnet for years and my contract was due to expire, so was looking to see what they would do. My phone call was met with a 50% reduction in my broadband charge. This meant I could get cheaper elsewhere according to the website information. A few days later I did an online chat with PlusNet, this resulted in free broadband for 18 months. So, all I have to pay is the line rental, which matched the website comparisons available. So I stayed with PlusNet, but would have gone to another provider if they had not improved the first offer. Don't take an offer if it does not meet your expectations.

My average speeds obtainable are between 1-2Mbps. Often I am receiving less than 1Mbps. Also regular outages. (No point showing an online map of where outages are if your customer has no internet!)
I chose Plusnet because I thought it was supported by BT - either way it's just not reliable.

Birmingham Plusnet  
I decided to move from Plusnet to BT because of slow Internet speed and Customer Service, particularly now that you could keep your email addresses despite changing providers. I changed over from Plusnet to BT and Plusnet instead of making the necessary detail adjustments for continuation of our two email addresses with BT, just cancelled our account. On contacting Plusnet, and having been passed around and told that I couldn't keep our email addresses, I spoke with a Manager who said it was correct, you can change provider and keep your email address. She apologised and said she would arrange for our email addresses to be resurrected and that it would take a couple of days. After some five or so days of not having any emails coming through I contacted Plusnet who advised that resurrecting a cancelled account cannot be done and as such I have lost everything. Hence my new email address and I am still making contact and trying to make contact with all the people and businesses and authorities that communicate with me via email. Nightmare! Plusnet's commercial - .......NO PROBLEM - for me is the biggest lie on TV. If you use Plusnet hope for the best but PLAN FOR THE WORST.

AVOID PLUSNET, THEY DON'T CARE TWO HOOTS ABOUT YOU.

I used to get 9 meg with Sky. Swapped to plusnet a year ago and this dropped immediately to 7 meg (at best).
Recently had a line fault and lost everything. Openreach quickly fixed the problem at the box at the end of the road.
Since then my max speed has been 4 meg. Plusnet will make no attempt to get me back to 7 meg because it still meets the new ofcom minimum requirement of 3.5 meg.
Beware of the minimum guaranteed speeds when you sign up because that is what you may end up with for the whole contract period. The speeds splashed all over the adverts are no guarantee that you will get anything like this. The minimum speeds are buried in the small print.

36 meg fibre broadband !!!!! You might end up with 10 meg from one provider I noticed. These advertised speeds need to be changed to minimum guaranteed speeds.

Bristol Plusnet  
In a town of 30,000 my house is one of 3 with no Openreach connection due to the line being left in disrepair. Ordered Plusnet on 15 August and after incompetently handling the matter and charging me every month for 7 MONTHS they finally tell me there will be a £4k charge for me to repair Openreach lines that are not even in my property!Then they blacklisted the property so no one can ever apply from here - don't want the hassle of having to actually make an effort in customer service.
The service with Plusnet is dreadful. Hours of waiting. Agents don't read notes. Repeating everything and they never listen. Untrained workers only sticking to script. Utterly incompetent. I used to love them but never again!

Scotland Plusnet  
15/3/19 Decide to join Plusnet due to positive reviews and my son having joined recently with no problems.
Supposed to go live on 29/3/19
On 25/3/19 no router had arrived. Tried to call but waiting time was too long for me to wait. Tried online chat, all lines busy.
I then went away for 2 days. On return on 29/3/19 no router or Royal Mail red card. My previous provider had disconnected the line so I had no internet.
Tried to track order from email with link to ‘track your order’ to be informed that I had no order.......
Rang customer services. Explained. After checking, member of staff said the router would be delivered in 2-3 days and apologised. I asked about compensation and was told I’d have to call back after set up to claim compensation.
1/4/19. No router. Rang customer services. Was told the router would be 4-5 days. I said that I was told it would be 2-3 days and that it hadn't arrived. I was told there was nothing she could do. I again asked about compensation and was told that I would get refund of the rental for however many days I was disconnected. I asked if she thought that was sufficient. I rang off.
2/4/19. No router. 14 minutes of online chat waste of time. Was told there was billing error on my account........Offered me one month line and broadband rental refund. He didn’t answer my questions. When asked when router would arrive, was told 3 working days. Online chat recorded.
Simultaneously got email saying my hardware had been ordered and would be 3-5 working days....
14.27. Rang customer services again..... was offered £40 to go and buy a router. Told 3-5 working days for theirs to be delivered. Asked to speak to manager. Said I didn’t want to buy router as I knew nothing about them. Asked why their router could not be sent express delivery. Their routers sent out from warehouse not them. Explained it all. Data on my mobile running out. Error made by first person who took order? Manager will look in to it and get back to me within 2 hours. This call was 22 minutes.

Manager called back as promised. He’d arranged router to be sent out recorded delivery and gave me delivery tracking number.
His confirmation email said that the agreed ..... was ‘XXX’....... phone call agreement was £30 credit.
7pm. Tried to track router on Royal Mail. Not trackable. Tried again at 11pm. Still not trackable.
3/4/19. 7am. Router still not trackable on Royal Mail
9.42. Tracked again. Royal Mail saying it’s been delivered. I was in at time of delivery so it had been delivered wrongly. Eventually went to neighbour the other side of estate, not in. Back home to write letter, delivered it. Owner of other house (not my address) contacted me having picked up my letter.
Got back at lunchtime and collected the TWO separate routers sent... the address on both parcels was wrong. The first one I opened had wrong power cable. Luckily 2nd parcel had right one. Connected computer after some help from Technical Support. Phone and printer also connected.
Later:
Smart TV not holding connection via WPS. Dropped connection every time I turned TV off and I had to reconnect by pushing WPS button and starting again. Rang TV company. They found same problem. Suggested it was router at fault as TV had worked perfectly with previous provider.
Ookla speeds through the night poor - worst at 7am when upload was 0.02.... best was 35 so average well below 38/40 for which I am paying.
4/4/10. Tried Smart TV again. WPS lost.
Rang Plusnet. 31 minutes later got answer from Technical support. Established it was probably faulty router as I had suspected. Told they’d send out new router. As I had been sent 2 routers in error, I agreed to change routers as most likely problem was that. Now have to reset phone, computer, printer and TV.....
4/4/19. Installed new router. Connected computer, iPhone and printer. WPS on Smart TV still very dodgy but appears to be working and not disconnecting every time.
Speeds extremely slow - often less than 1......
Online chat said the speed to my property was 38 - of COURSE IT WAS!!
Changed channel - speeds slightly better but nothing like 38 - 40.
Have asked for increased compensation as Plusnet is part of BT who have signed up to Offcom agreement at £8 a day. I had no internet for 5 and a half days. Awaiting answer.
Totally fed up with the whole service and after all the t5ourble, still got slow speeds.

We moved a month ago, and took plusnet with us. Since then, there is always an issue after another one. Everytime, we're told to wait 2 working days... And then there is again an issue, so need to wait again... It's been a month, we still don't have internet, and they ask us to pay the bill...

London Plusnet  
If I could give no stars then I would.
Someone wrongly used our address for a new contract.
When we received the letters informing 'the new occupier' about their new contract we IMMEDIATELY informed Plusnet, we did everything they asked us and received email verification to assure us that this error had been taken care off.
To our HORROR we woke up friday morning to find phone/ internet dead.
Thinking a quick call to customer services should sort this out turned into an unfolding nightmare of poor couldn't care less customer service pas
sed from one department to another every time having to retell the story from the beginning. Put on hold for half an hour.. then cut off. Ring back. Rinse and repeat all day long.
No apologies, no help, no offers to alleviate the situation. Just blankly told you'll need to sign up for a new contract and it will take two weeks minimum.
Great Plusnet. I'll just lose two weeks earnings because of your sheer incompetence and don't even bother taking ownership of YOUR mistake or offer ANY help in alleviating the problems caused by YOUR mistake.
No courtesy calls from a customer service rep to apologise nothing. Having to hound them constantly while they waste away your day passing you around one office to another, putting you on hold, cutting you off, wearing you down.
PLUSNET.. We'll let you down..... We'll make you mad... We'll make you wish you chose another damn company to provide you with basic phone and broadband.

North Devon Plusnet  
Honestly the worst service I have ever encountered. After it unreliably turning on and off consistently for the year we've had it we had to resign up after they terminated our account because our neighbour switched providers? when we resigned up they said they'd have to inspect the property to see if the wifi would work EVEN THOUGH we have had plusnet for a year and our landlords for the year before therefore the property has been accessible for internet for 2 years with them. Engineer was sent to the property without informing us (even though he had to come inside to 'fix' the connection) and when we rescheduled they got the day wrong twice! We were promised the internet would run within 24 hours of the engineer arriving, the engineer confirmed that it should be available straight away and they only needed to run a signal to the exchange. THEN we are told on the phone we will receive it on the wednesday the WEEK AFTER the engineer has visited. TODAY IS THE THURSDAY, THE INTERNET IS NOT WORKING AND WE HAVE RECEIVED NO REFUND FOR GOING WITHOUT INTERNET FOR OVER A MONTH OF TRYING TO RE-SIGN UP.


NEVER EVER GO WITH THIS SERVICE, THEY WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY AND GIVE YOU NO SERVICE

I agree with most reviews below, I have been with plusnet for 5 years and seen them get worse and worse. The router is old, out of date and unreliable, but if I want a new one I have to pay, and pay a lot!!! My webmail keeps stopping me from accessing it. When trying to get help, they are evasive and patronising. Be very wary of this company, they get you and then they just don't care.

Just don't bother. Set up at our new place is currently 2 days behind schedule and every time we ring for an update they've moved the goal posts- from Monday to Monday midnight to Tuesday.
This after they were terribly unhelpful with technical issues the previous year we were with them. Only reason we're still stuck with them is because we missed the deadline to back out and it automatically renewed. This year I'll be counting down the days.

Manchester Plusnet  
Absolutely APALLING! Wouldn't give them any stars if it were an option. We had a business account with them and then one day came to work and realised the phone line wasnt working nor was broadband, phoned them and they told us that due to a system error they accidentally deleted our whole account and they would set it back up again for us, so we waited a week and still nothing. SO phoned them back and they told us they were not going to set our account up again unless we paid again, wtf?! You could of let us know!! Appalling sevice, bunch of ill mannered staff with no capability in doing their job right, we had nobody write or email us any warnings, it's as if they don't want to communicate and can't be bothered because they are only there for their monthly wage, they don't care about the business or the customer. Also the broadband speed was frankly **** too and they would take different amounts of money each month then have to refund it back to us. We literally only stayed with them to keep the same phone number!! Never really thought it could get any worse but it did. AVOID AT ALL COST.

We signed up to Plusnet Fibre Extra and Phoneline (£27.95 18 Month Contract, no Connection Fee via a USwitch Exclusive Offer) on 19/2 and the service went live, as planned, on 5/3. Everything worked fine except Caller ID but this was resolved within an hour of me posting a message in the Community Forum. The service has been very stable, once the 10 day line testing was completed we now get a very consistent 72Mb at any time of day. However, in common with several other new customers we didn’t receive an email within 10 days of our service starting to claim our Reward Card but this has now been resolved and the card is on its way, The Hub One Router is OK, it’s perhaps not quite as powerful as our previous SSE Router (who we sadly had to leave because of increasingly rigid evening throttling). Overall we are very happy with the Plusnet service.

One star is too generous. Absolutely the worst company I have ever dealt with, lied to, fobbed off on a daily basis, and still no broadband nearly 2 months later. Poor communication, terrible customer service and support and poor relations between plusnet and openreach resulting in problem after problem.

I have had over 15 promised 'live' dates with a problem occurring at each and every one. It'll be a miracle if I ever receive the service I am paying for at this rate. And to add insult to injury the thieving little crooks will not allow me to leave my contract without an exit fee.

Avoid Plusnet at all costs. Not worth the time or energy.

Utter rubbish, after complaining my broadband was slow they agreed to send an engineer out only if I agreed to a £60 charge, even though they told me there was a fault on the line. My broadband is still slow and sometimes does not work at all. They trap you with an 18 month contract and then supply you with a sub standard service. They are unprofessional and actually run a complaints department on Facebook!

Very unreliable connection, but it's always "BT's fault" that they can't get an engineer to fix look at it for weeks. Then it's a cycle of three visits for anyone to do anything, because they don't write proper notes on the plusnet system that instructs the engineers... but they are the same company.

While it's easy to sign up online, you cannot cancel or transfer through the same channel. I waited for ages on hold and got absolutely ridiculous fear-mongering when trying to cancel. Turns out "great customer service" only applies when everything is rosy.

A few days in to using PlusNet and I wish we had never switched. I need reliable connection so I can work on my laptop, listen to the radio and to check on my dog via the camera when I am out. So far this morning the router has lost signal twice and it’s 8.10am. Pretty unimpressed.

Will not be recommending this service, broadband problems for the last 6 months with speeds dropping badly, the customer service is not as advertised, promised phone calls never materialised as per promised, they haven’t got a designated complaints department. When a complaint is lodged nothing gets done about it and you feel fobbed off as you get nowhere. Glad my contract ends in 1 month as will be going elsewhere, the service is definitely not what is advertised on tv, so please beware before you join

Upton upon Severn Plusnet  
There were problems with provision of the router for the new broadband. However when I rang them the customer service was excellent - they apologised and admitted it had been overlooked (no flannel or excuses) and gave a part refund as compensation. The person who sorted out the refund when I rang back to claim it was extremely helpful and polite. He explained clearly what the process would be and the payment was made quickly and efficiently. Mistakes happen with all businesses but it was refreshing to speak to staff who obviously cared a great deal about the service they provide. Only complaint is there was nowhere on the PlusNet website to thank them for great customer service!

My complaint is concerning obtaining a final bill and refund. I have been chasing this since my service ended with them on 8 March. I can see other people have had difficulty, even waiting several months!! I cancelled my direct debit after they took the full amount in error, so now I am waiting for a cheque which apparently is beyond their capabilities. I have been promised a final bill on different dates, but none has materialised.
This appalling customer service is so short sighted. Not only will it result in bad reviews, it will also mean people will no longer wish to return to Plusnet. I certainly will not go back to them in the future, however good their deals may be.

Surrey Plusnet  
Absolutely terrible! Three attempts it took them to ‘install’ broadband. Despite me telling them that there was a line - which they should have been able to see - they charged me to send soemebody out. He put a line in and connected to the other line. Eventually ( 5 weeks ) later they were able to remotely connect to the original line I had told them about!
At each stage they were rude and lacking intelligence. A year later they are starting to charge me more and it turns out that I am out of contract. They are able to increase charges and send bills every month and make contact if I do not pay the bill but they are NOT ABLE to make contact to inform of a charge increase or the contract has ended!! They actually said it is just not possible!!
After years of terrible service from BT I switched to Plusnet because they claimed to be best for customer service ( now they say customer support I don’t know why they needed to change that )It turns out that Plusnet was set up BT because they weee losing so many people for their poor service and stupid staff. Maybe change the way you operate as well then??

ABYSMAL - AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE. I have been a very loyal customer for over 11 years now - so old I was in pre-contract times - no contract with them. Developed a fault, engineer came out said I need a new router. If I purchase a new router myself, every time I have a problem they will blame my router. To get a free router from them I HAVE BEEN FORCED to sign up for a 12 month contract. If this is how they treat loyal customers new ones got no chance.

Tried to sign up for broadband. Quickly realised their customer service was appalling. Cancelled the connection before the installation date. 6 weeks have now gone past since cancellation and they have not refunded over £200 paid up front. I call every week, they say they will arrange the refund, then they do not. Muppets.

The broadband speed is rubbish in the morning at peak time - ie from 8am to 9.30am. The signal is extremely slow or non-existent, so apps like Alexa can't function and opening websites online takes forever. I never had this poor broadband speed with Sky and it had the same comparable speed. Landline phone works ok but what can go wrong with it? Also the downside is I have to pay extra if I want anytime day, evening and weekend calls. There's no offer of anything in between. When my contract runs out I definitely won't be staying with Plusnet and won't recommend them either.

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!

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.

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.

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.

I was disconnected by them and even after five more attempts the same thing happened. Looked for the complaints number on Plusnet website and it's the same options as before. On each occasion unable to get through and discuss contract options...two hours later - still no joy.. absolutely disgraceful Award winning? 100% yes for rubbish service...

Southport Plusnet  
I've been with plus net around two years now and have never had any issues really until recently. I noticed that over the last few months that I had been charged more than my normal bill. I contacted them and waited 40 minutes before someone finally picked up the phone.I was told by an operator that it was because i had not renewed my contract. I set up a new contract and was surprised to find I had been charged an extra £15 on top of what was supposed to be £32 per month. When I called back I spoke to a really nice and helpful operator who said that I would be refunded and sent me an e-mail of my new plan. It's early days for the refund but I will wait and see. Reading through all these reviews has made me worried about entering into a new contract with plusnet,I'm also shocked how a company can operate like this and provide which seems,(going by most of the reviews) such an appalling service. Avoid.

I placed an order for broadband more than one and a half months ago, and today they are telling me that the installation will be delayed even 2 weeks more. They have been playing with my patience by ensuring me that the service will be up and running on the next day or in the next week. This happened to me several times since I signed the contract. I have called many times to the support and the staff keep saying different reasons for the delay. Summary: If you don't want to be without phone/broadband for a couple of months with people constantly lying to you, don't go for PlusNet: Worst service ever.

These guys are absolutely the worst mobile company ever and that’s saying something. Signed up for a mobile deal which included cash back and guess what the cash back never happened. I then get told if I pull the contract there charge me £80.00 for not keeping my side of the contract. What about there side where they shafted me for £40.00 and think that’s ok. All they do is send me on wild goose chases trying to track down my money. Nice way to treat a customer who signed in good faith and expected plusnet to do the same. Sign with them at your own peril and hope nothing goes wrong or your find your on your own.

Their adverts say great customer service but it's far from it.

I've just had my 2nd bill with Plusnet Business. They have charged me twice as much. Logged into my account and contacted them via online chat, a lady told me she can not help me as she does not deal with businesses (why have the online chat option on a busness account them.)
Told to ring another number, took me 20 mins to get through to someone then was told that was residential only as well! Explained what happened, the lady on the phone said she will put me through to business and there is no waiting time... there was.. took me 15 mins to get through to them on top of the 20 minutes before.

When running a business the last thing I want to do it spending all this time fixing their error.

It has been 15 days and Plusnet has failed to provide me a basic broadband service even though this was supposed to be an easy switch from an other supplier. Firs engineering visit was arranged one week after I informed that there is no service. And an other week passed with one missed engineering visit and assigning wrong type of engineer to the work. I had to wait at home for three slots (8 am to 1 pm) and now required to stay home again for a fourth time for another engineering visit. Nothing is so complicated than to start doing business with Plusnet. ı highly discourage anyone thinking to switch to them.

If I could give negative scores I would. Have been a customer for years and initially Plusnet were brilliant and I recommended them to many friends and family. Unfortunately I have had problems for over two years, still not resolved and now a worse situation because they “ceased” my line in error and now there is no space for me to get back the fibre broadband I did have, albeit intermittently. Their customer service do not listen properly, you cannot make a complaint properly and they do not respond to their “ticket” system. All in all a very bad experience.

Broadband was ok when connected but we were killed caked out of the internet every time a phone or iPad went on to rest mode so if I was watching a film on the iPad like I often do every time I paused it I cad to the connect to the internet before I could play the movie again. Also there was zero internet service every nite approximately between the hours of 8 and 10 absolutely no good and when I eventually got on the live chat after months of trying plusnets answer was that they don’t guarantee WiFi absolutely bewildered what on earth was I paying for who uses a direct line any more? Anyway they refused to terminate my contract therefore I have been forced to cancel my direct debit with the bank. Waste of time trying to go about things the right way and waste of money on a useless service.

Very unhappy with Plusnet.

Had a fully working fibre to cabinet broadband service for many years that stopped working. After many calls and one week later it was revealed by Plusnet that their internal computer system had deleted our broadband. They could give no date for re-connection and we have now been without broadband for 3 weeks and have been told we will get an update in a further 2 weeks time, so 5 weeks in total. No offer of escalation, no offer of a 4G modem.

Staff are polite and helpful but clearly their internal systems and policies are not adequate.

I have had the worst experience with Plusnet please stay away from them and whatever you do do not make the initial payment because if you change your mind within the 14 day cooling off period they give you inaccurate information as to when you will receive a refund. First it’s within 7 days then when you don’t receive it and contact them they say it’s 48 hours and then when that does not happen you contact them again and get told they are sending a cheque within 14 days.

Signed up to them to move our phone and fibre to new premises and 4 weeks later we are still without internet and phone lines. We must have called them 50+ times to try and resolve issues. Lied to about every single element of this process, dates etc and always met with rudeness. We have now moved and plus net have taken over our line - but the call divert they promised when we signed up to them, HAS NOT been set up, and they now say it will take 48 hours. So we have NO PHONE LINES to our business currently. The disruption, stress and now cost implications are staggering. DO NOT USE under any circumstances.

Plusnet requested a termination fee due to me prematurely ending my service, which I had no problem and duly attempted to pay, however when I got through to their payments team they said they were unable to take payment due a fault with their system and assured they would contact me when they were able to take payment. They also assured me they would not refer the matter to a collections agency and they sent me this in writing by email. I did not contact plusnet again as I felt it was up to them to contact me to collect their money. I was horrified then that a few weeks later I received a letter from a collections agency demanding the fee plus extra costs. I contacted the agency to explain the situation. I then contacted plusnet who apologised to me and said they had instructed the collections agency that I only need to pay the termination fee and no extra costs. I then contacted the collections agency again who advised me that plusnet had not contacted them whatsoever. The matter is still ongoing and I have all the written evidence from plusnet to say that I only need pay the termination fee and no extra costs. Plusnet, this is truly appalling service and I hope the telecommunication ombudsman is reading this. It is extremely worrying that plusnet have behaved in this way and very serious.

They have been sending me account warning messages for months, but they're all wrong. They tell me there's a well known problem with their accounting software and so I just have to live with the fact that they can't bill me correctly. Plusnet have never been in touch to tell me there's a known problem or when it'll get fixed. I'm shocked at the way they're handling this problem, and I'll never use them again.

I explained this was impossible and then told there was not waiting times at all and lots of availability to get the call answered and no waiting time. I rang again straight away to be told there is a 20 minute wait - what an absolute joke this company is and wouldn't know what customer service was if it hit them in the face.

To those looking for a new supplier. Plusnet does not perform well. My download speeds are not as promised. I logged a download speed of 0.83 last night. The range is very poor, I struggle to obtain a consistent, reliable service upstairs (average 3 bed home). Changing channels and router has not improved the situation. My advice is to pay a little more and choose an alternative supplier.

Beware choosing Plusnet. Customer Services and Billing are absolutely atrocious. My billing has often been wrong. For example: I've just (stupidly) renewed an annual contract with them and they've double-charged me on my broadband. I ring them (always long waits, sometimes up to an hour). A surly assistant tells me that " no system is foolproof" ! No apologies. I tell her that the same happened last year. She becomes even more surly and then says goodbye and puts the phone down whilst I'm still in mid-sentence.

Utterly shocking. After 2 weeks I gave up. Didn’t even manage to connect us! Partner unable to work from home, unable to use our other services. Ended up having my money back.
They didn’t even order the router or exchange work. Kept blaming Open reach and they blamed someone else. Not my problem!!!!! I just wanted to be “Done proud” Company is not organised, a joke.
Oh, the one thing that went seamlessly was the taking of my money, that worked.

The worse CEO complaint department and worse for service. Failed to cancel my contract after 30 days notice due to an error in their system. I only knew because collections started t chase be for 3 months unpaid bill. Contract still not cancelled and complaints being ignored. Finally the case is now with the ombudsman and account has been closed. Indian call centre can at least cancel the contract on time. ! ! ! !

Plusnet is ok until somthing goes wrong it is then a disaster area. I have just left Plusnet and owe them £14-29 I tried to pay it last time i contacted them but couldnt because they didnt know the exact figure. Today having had no emails or telephone calls they have written to me saying they have been unable to contact me and have passed my debt to a debt collector Oriel. I have tried to contact both Plusnet and Oriel this morning neither answers the phone within the times they say. To add insult they have added 25% to the amount for their trouble!!

We have been with Plusnet for 7 years and the service has been reliable. Any problems they have sorted via the help lines. Our original router worked but was 7 years old so they sent a new one for £7. Installation was very easy.
We have not changed from Plusnet because it has been zero hassle.

Plusnet is the worst internet provider I’ve ever had. Don’t sign up with them. Customer service was abysmal, the service was extremely intermittent, and the the cost was far too high for the service provided. I don’t know how they have the nerve to spend money on advertising
Isle of Wight Plusnet  
cancelled my internet contract in December read out out all of my credit card details over the phone to end the contract and pay the payment - mans mucked the payment up now I’m getting debt fees for his mistake ..... people at Plusnet obv can’t do their jobs properly ? He also hasn’t recorded any info of our conversation- if I have to pay for someone’s mistakes after being told countless times that everything was ok and sorted out I honestly would not recommend such a scam of a company - recived am email from 2 days ago - 14 days to be resolved to pay a balance of £0.00??? Or it will be sent to debt collection? As far as I was aware I owed no money and yet apparently I do and it’s been sent already !!

If anyone cancels with this crap company please check your bank to see if the imbecile that works there has done it correctly and it comes out coz I didn’t !! Wasn’t aware I had to check somone does their job right

Been with plusnet for years, we are in an area they class as low speed, all providers agree. So we stuck with them but their customer service now is terrible. Long queues to speak with anyone and when you do finally get through you are told that a change in some system or other is causing problems. I am over charged then ring up for a refund only for it to happen the following month. Will leave once this contract is done.

Been with them since Dec 2018. Internet constantly not connecting yet modem blue. Rang them to say was perfect with BT but since they took over numerous drop outs every day. They tested line whilst I was on phone & said all okay. Then wanted me to unscrew plate from open reach socket, to which I replied had no screw driver to hand & was concerned about doing that. He then said would send engineer but if no problem found in my home It would cost me £65. I stated not happy as never had problem with BT & maybe it was the router. Not interested just got me to agree to possible £65 cost & said someone would contact me. Then got email day or so later saying problem resolved. It's not!! The internet is worse than dial up was years ago & I will be leaving when contract up!! They have not done me nor themselves Proud!!!!!!!

it was a solid connection up to approx December last year. My signal level is too low against the noise level especially after dark.

Recently took up serrvice with plus net who guaranteed us a minimum of 25mb and an average of 38. The main reason for plus net was their so called customer service.I wanted to change service due to inability to ever watch i player without continual buffering. This has not improved and today check says 8.24mb. The person I spoke with yesterday was very helpful. The guy tonight was despicable, refusing to provide any help whatsoever without full security details which I do not have to hand. He refused to put me through to his manager. Very disappointed and looking to cancel as we are still within the 14 days.

We are now trying to get a reduced contract as they are not delivering a consistent service.

My broadband speed dropped off and not close to the speed that I signed up to. For 15 days I checked my speed twice a day and recorded the dates and times. I then telephone Plus Net and was through to Jack at Plus Net within 2 minutes, I informed Jack of my findings regarding my broad band speed. We reset my router wich made no difference, Jack raised a work number to sort my problem out. The following day I carried out a further broad band speed check to see my reading, I was amazed to see that my broad band was up to full speed, I also received an email from Plus Net informing me that my issue was resolved and that I was up and running at my allocated speed. For me personally Plus Net did an excellent job of sorting out my issue what else can I say, thanks Jack at Plus Net.

London Plusnet  
I am paying for 14 mB/s, however, I am averaging on 800 kB/s - 1 mB/s. The internet disconnects between 4-10 times every day. I can't even remember the last day it didn't disconnect. It is absolute rubbish, as we pre-paid 12 months.

When I call or chat with customer services, they keep telling me the service is good, when I can see in front of me the download speed being 0.8 mB/s. The only solution they present, is having an engineer over, which would cost me £65. I'm struggling to see why I should be the one charged for their absolute ridiculous (broadband- and customer) service. 1 star is too high of a rating.

Brentwood, Essex Plusnet  
Agree with some comments about shambolic service.
So let's start with the Good. I moved from BT to Plusnet since my BT contract expired and Plusnet had an offer which made them competitive. Speed tests showed they hit the median value quoted.
Now the BAD
1) When my 12month contract expired, they offered me a renewed contract similar to mine. I also mentioned I was moving cities (different STDs), but they said that was no problem and that I could move over when the time was right, though a new number would have to be generated (stands to reason). What they didn't tell me on during the conversation was that it costs £65 to change address. They offered an alternative, which was to cancel the existing renewed contract at no extra cost and then take out a new 18 month contract (but different tariffs). I reluctantly agreed to the latter
2) So switchover date arrived, but our line still showed as being disconnected. Received numerous emails and texts on the day to say everything had gone swimmingly. Tried calling them, but as with others' experiences, they phone customer service is a lottery. Double their estimated time for a human to answer the call would be realistic at most times of the day. So I tried to use their chat. The 1st chap I spoke to eventually tried to arrange an Openreach engineer with a strong warning that any issue with the line found within the boundary of our rented property would result in a £65 charge. Any need to re-visit following such a conclusion would result in more charges if it wasn't possible to resolve on the first attempt. I need to seek permission from our landlord before going ahead.
2)I had thought, what happens if I call the new number provided? It actually rang and on the 2nd attempt, got through to someone other than my spouse. Not a happy bunny.
3) Following 2), I went through the arduous call process. Wow! The various Teams within Plusnet really struggle to talk to one another or know the infrastructure. Started off in Customer Service. Was then pushed to Tech Support. Told to wait....found myself back in the queue..start over. Eventually told I must have a crossed line and that the order hadn't successfully completed. Then put through to the so-called 'Provisioning Team', who denied it was an order fault and should be the Tech support guys responsibility. They eventually booked a BT engineer to visit our property in the notorious 1/2 day window.

Its ironic that Plusnet have some Northern lad boasting to endorse a company with 'Northern' values and customers' interests at hand. Errr! Have you tried contacting your own help line?

Total call time 1h 59sec. Took the full length of my 40 mile commute home.

The service was fine for a while but the wifi eventually became unstable, slow and unusable around the house. plusnet were unable to solve and said that they do not guarantee service around the home!

When I left to go elsewhere they slapped me with high early termination charges which were in their ts and cs but I felt unreasonable given I didn't want to leave them. I asked for a waiver and/or discretionary credit, but they refused.

Burton on Trent Plusnet  
Hi there

I want to warn other people who are potentially thinking of changing broadband provider. I was with Virgin but was experiencing slow speeds and was paying too much for a service I only partially used. I looked online and thought the plus net deal for phone and broadband looked good so I signed up. I then faced a very long wait trying to speak to someone as I have plus net phone and broadband in one of my business premises so I wondered if they might have been able to offer me a better deal....I was transferred to someone else and lost the will to live having been on hold for over half an hour. Later I received a text saying my installation had been changed from PM as requested to AM - I tried to contact plus net about this but faced an unacceptable wait of over 30 minutes each time I tried. I then managed to log my question about this on their website and received a response saying it would be dealt with in 24 hours.....no response after 2 weeks and counting. Anyway, I digress, the main reason I am disgruntled is due to the fact that nowhere on the site does it explain that if you don't currently have a BT phone line a new one will have to be installed which may involve drilling a hole into an external wall; maybe to some people this is obvious but I am a compete dunce when it comes to technology and I did not realise this - if I had I would never have signed up. I think there should be a check-list on-line for people to complete when they sign up for a service so people are aware of what may be involved. Our engineer arrived this morning and within 2 minutes he said that he recommended staying with Virgin as he was going to have to drill a hole from outside in to our new extension and run several metres of cabling......he said to call plus net and say I wanted to cancel and that I would be in the cooling off period so all would be well. I see from other complaints that the cooling off period applies from the date you place your order, not the date of installation - very convenient for plus net. When I called to cancel (after another long wait) I was told that they would process the cancellation but that I would be charged £49 for the engineer's visit. I said I was upset about this as he didn't do anything except advise us to stay with our existing service and he was literally in the house no more than 4 or 5 minutes. I said I wanted to complain and a case was opened but during a call later in the day I was told that they were sticking with their decision not to refund me for the engineer's visit. I think this is shocking and want others to be aware so they don't make the same mistake as me.

Poor speed and reliability. The customer service staff are the most rude and offensive creatures I have ever had the misfortune to encounter. Raised 3 complaints in one day and they were closed unresolved with 12 hours. Fault not resolved and given the address of their 2ndstage which had to be done in writing and send by post. Staff refused to give the the CEO's Email. Cant be bothered participating in their biased maybe non-existant complaint system. Found the CEO's Email on-line. You got a lot of explaining to do mate. Where is my missing private data? Expect an Email from me soon I AM THOROUGHLY DISGUSTED BY YOUR RUDE ATTROCIUOS STAFF. My personal data has gone missing and I want it back Shame on you.

What a shambles - my previous contract expired last year - Plusnet were looking for a 50% increase to renew so I said I would move service. They then said they would reduce my bill again to stay on an 18 month contract so I agreed (big mistake!). Since then they keep trying to bill me for the price they originally wanted. I have to keep phoning them to get then to correct their system. They keep blaming a new computer system and a whole load of apologies, but reassure me they have now corrected their records and this would not happen again. Today I receive four automated emails from them saying that I had an unpaid amount on my account from Dec last year and that they would be terminating my service and changing me a £227 cancellation fee. So I phoned them again and after waiting for someone to answer the phone they agreed this was a terrible mistake with their IT system, very sorry and this would not happen again. Im fed up with having to keep ringing them so said I wanted to talk to a manager about these reoccurring problems. They refused my request. Considering the size of this company and part of BT, they are running it like a bunch of amateurs.

Where do I start with this review? Quite simply, an utterly appalling company, not fit for purpose. DO NOT BECOME A PLUSNET customer PLEASE!!
Signed up with Plusnet on 03.12.18, paying 12 months advance line rental to take advantage of the discount (£201.88p). Nice fluffy Welcome letter assured me that Plusnet would do everything to activate my new service, including contact my old provider BT Wrong! This didn't happen. On 15.12.18 when I contacted BT CS, I was advised that Plusnet needed to do this as an account transfer, giving 30 days notice before activating the new service with me. BT had no idea that I was transferring and told me that, potentially, I would be paying for 2 accounts; an existing one with them and the new one with Plusnet!
Meanwhile, Plusnet was insisting that there was a problem recognising my billing address and this could be solved only by installing a second landline. Nothing could convince them that the line from which I was speaking was working perfectly! I refused to even consider this as an option.
Despite this 'problem', Plusnet text/emailed me to confirm that my order was due for completion on 19.12.18 (nicely just beyond the 14 day cooling off period as experienced by other reviewers unlucky enough to have had the Plusnet experience).
After days of stress/being on hold/having fruitless conversations with apparently clueless CS advisors, I cancelled my order (on 15.12.18) and have remained with BT.
However, getting my £201.88 refunded took further days of stress/on hold/unhelpful calls. I was told initially that this would be refunded by the billing team onto my credit card in 10 working days. A Plusnet router arrived and I was advised that I could do what I liked with this; no need to return. No refund after 12 working days so further CSA calls to be told that they had a problem with their automated system so this amount would be paid manually into my bank acc within 5 working days. They confirmed they had details. I was told that they relied on customer reporting to confirm this problem. What a dreadful system! No refund after 5 days but an email from Plusnet informing me that I would be reimbursed by cheque in the next 14 days!!! CSA (more calls/more stress) told me they did not hold any account details for me, despite confirmation from the previous advisor that they had this information. He then said the previous advisor must have been making it up! WHAT a truly appalling organisation!! Told him I was SO glad I'd left.
Finally emailed the CEO of Plusnet (andy.baker@plus.net) with a chronology of all these events and asking for his help re refund. A member of his 'CE Team' left me a voicemail promising to email me. Needless to say, the email never arrived. However, a cheque for the refund did turn up 48 hours later, so maybe my email did hasten this dreadful process and help it to conclude.
Almost the worst stress I've experienced since my husband died some years ago. Would hate anyone else to go through anything similar so PLEASE heed the warnings and avoid at all costs. I consider I had a lucky escape before the end of the 14 days.
If I could rate Plusnet at less than zero, I would do so.
This is not a rant; it's a series of facts.

Thirsk Plusnet  
Completely and utterly let down by plusnet. I originally placed an order and booked a days holiday for an engineer to come out. After no one turned up I called up to find out my order was cancelled without my Knowledge. I was assured it would all be set up again and told I'd be contacted regarding a new engineer appointment. After not hearing from them I called up only to find they had booked an appointment and not told me the day or time. Because it was too short notice I could only take the day off as unpaid. The engineer never showed and after contacting them all they could do was raise a dispute with open reach and couldn't book another appointment until that was sorted. After over an hour on the phone I asked to cancel, only to be put through to an arrogant customer service rep who told me I was free to go and use whatever Internet provider I liked from now on. I'm down a days pay and left with no broadband, totally disgusted at the lack of customer care.

Please can I advise people not to use pulsenet. I joined last may, informed them what i use the internet for etc and was advised on the package i needed. I have never had reliable broadband. I have contacted them several times regarding this and advised to try all sorts of things without success.
Contacted them again on friday to cancelled to be advised that I am not on the right package???
Trying to get through to Pulsenet is impossible on the wait for over half an hour.
I have been waiting for a call back from a manager for the last 2 days without success.
They are horrendus, don't live up to what they say you will get.

This is the worse company I have ever dealt with.
I am 69 years old & in all these years I have never, ever dealt with anyone as poor as this.
There customer service is terrible & their technical department is so bad that my limited knowledge of technology is far superior.
They simply are unable to comprehend basic principals , they want you to send them numerous examples but are unable to comprehend the detail you send.
I have wasted countless hours trying to get my message across to them but they just ignore you when you try & help them deduce the problems.
A terrible, shocking company who should not be trading.

This broadband is horrendous. I’ve had it for a few months now and it has been less than satisfactory. When I initially got it I couldn’t understand them as they were Indian. The package said it was for families of 7 and over. There’s 4 people in my familie and it is the worst broadband I’ve used. I seriously don’t recomend.

I am shocked to see sooo many negative comments about Plusnet, I thought I was one of a few but seems like they systematically treat people in a horrible way...!!! PlusNet you are terrible!! My contract THANKS GOD finished on 23 Jan 19 but they are forcing me to pay until 7 Feb 19 for the service I wont be using because of their 14 day cancellation policy which no one mentioned to me before!! Every time I called them I had to spend at least 30 mins in the queue only because I chose the option of terminating my contract. Obviously, they force people to wait so long so that they eventually give up and hang up the phone..!!! Out of 10 people I spoke 8 were rude and full of arrogance! If you want to get stuck for at least 12 months with hideous internet speed, terrible customer service and overpriced tariff, PlusNet is the best of all providers out there!!! YOU DONT EVEN DESERVE 1 STAR which I have to give because I don't have another choice!!! PLEASE DON'T MAKE MY MISTAKE AND STAY AWAY FROM PLUSNET AT ALL COSTS!!!!!!

When I moved from Sky, Plusnet weren’t the cheapest but I was lured by the promise of a £75 Amazon gift voucher which made it a good deal and just in time for Christmas.
That was 3 months ago - I’m still waiting for the gift voucher.
I’ve spent 136 minutes on the phone to them but still no voucher.
Every time I call, they fob me off and blame the marketing department who you’re not allowed to speak to.
Today I received an email confirmation of the complaint I made 56 days ago!
Atrocious customer service and not a particularly good broadband service.
I’m not sure if they are victims of their own success but I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone.

I've had plus net for about 3 months now swapping from BT who I felt were expensive....I was concerned about the reviews but as they seemed to be similar to BT I thought I'd take the chance...I've had absolutely no problems at all, the transfer was trouble free and the service has been faultless. They are a good bit cheaper and I can still get BT sport which I wanted.

If I could I’d give a minus sign for broadband reliability I Continuously I have had to complain about signal dropping out. I am Paying for super fibre yet every ten minutes the single will drop out for 2/3 minutes at least 4 times a week (numerous times a day). This started over 6 months ago and continues to be an on going issue Then to be told you may have to pay for a engineer when you’re already paying for a service you are not receiving is pathetic, unprofessional and a damn right Libity (plusnet is already getting paid for a service that they are not providing and they are not holding up their end of the contract)

A positive? Their customer service do try to help resolve situation (but then again it never solves the problem)

Had a contract for 18 month or for however long which I terminated early due to poor service, endless problems with slow or not working broadband, poor telephone line. Fed up with constant long call waiting times for over an hour sometimes trying to solve the issues. In the end I gave up but naturally got stiffed for an £80.00 early termination penalty and threats of contacting a debt recovery firm if I didn't pay. Not even sure if this fee is legal but can't be bothered to challenge it. When I phone up to pay it they answered the phone straight away , funny that. I only went to plusnet as BT was rubbish now I hear they are both the same company so both are rubbish.

Absolutely shambolic company.

Signed up online. Heard nothing. Called up. They said a problem with identifying the correct line. They said it was sorted.

2 weeks before I was due to go live I called up about the router. I still hadn't received it. Thry said I would receive it a few days before going live but there was a problem with the line. Apparently now sorted and I would still go live on the same day.

A week before going live I called about the router again. They said there was a problem with the line. Again. Apparently sorted. Router was dispatched. 

3 days before going live. No router. Called again. Problem with the line. My current supplier had cancelled my contract. Plusnet cant take over. I have internet. N router. No phone line.

Absolutely shambolic

West midlands Plusnet  
I'd like to share my experience of Plusnets fibre broadband and customer service for everyone so you all are aware of just how terrible this company is. I signed up to their fibre service on the 27th of December and received the router in the post. I then received an e-mail to inform me that my switchover date would be the 14th Jan. After I had received another e-mail stating that the switchover was complete i installed my router but was met with a flashing orange error light. After spending a long time on the phone to their technical support i was told that I must have a faulty router and that they would send me another that would arrive the next day. The router didn't arrive until 4 days later and after installing it i found it had exactly the same issue as the previous one. At this point I’d had enough as I’d already been without internet access for almost a week and in the previous 12+ years living in my house I'd never had a single problem with either BT or Sky. I called Plusnet to cancel my contract but was told by a very rude person that they would charge me a £200 cancellation fee as i was now out of my 14 day cooling off period! this despite the fact that they hadn't yet actually provided me with any service yet!

They said they need to arrange for a BT engineer to come to my house and check my equipment and only if they can't find a fault would they, possibly, allow me to leave my contract. I said this wasn't acceptable as there is clearly nothing wrong with my equipment, it's been working perfectly fine for the last 12 years with BT and Sky and has only been a problem since they switched me to Plusnet so the issue must clearly be with either the 2 routers they had sent me or the BT network external to my house. I also only have 2 holiday days left until April and need those for childcare so my only other option would be to try and take an unpaid day of work which I didn't want to do. They wouldn't listen to me and just kept repeating that the only next step available was to get an engineer, otherwise they would charge me £200. I asked to speak to a manager or supervisor and was eventually put through to somebody who was incredibly rude and patronising and wouldn't listen to my concerns at all.

The customer service i have received from Plusnet is nothing short of a disgrace, i now have to take an unpaid day off work to wait for a BT engineer to come and confirm what i already know and what is clear to anyone with any sort of IT knowledge that my telephone equipment is fine. After arranging for an engineer I asked Plusnet support for the contact details of their complaints department and was told there wasn't one, all they could do was to add a note to the support call they had raised for me!

I am absolutely disgusted with Plusnet. I’m currently having to pay for a service they are not providing (which has worked flawlessly with BT and Sky for the last 12 years). The 14 day cooling off period is clearly a scam as they time it so they don't transfer you to their service until this period is over. The support staff not only lack basic IT knowledge but are rude, arrogant and patronising and to top it off they don't even have a complaints procedure, maybe because it would cost them far to much to have to deal with all the complaints!

For anyone reading this all I can say is to avoid Plusnet like the plague. Stick to either BT or Sky who know what they're doing and in my experience have great customer service.

Avoid at all costs.
started a broadband contract with them on the 4th January. Usually it id a matter of just setting up a router and the company swap everything over from the previous company. not plusnet.
Even though i managed to get the broadband up and running on the 5th, i had no router, so i had to pay £70 for my own. router finally turned up 2 weeks later.
Also they did not contact my previous supplier sky, so i am paying £45 a month on top of my plusnet contract.
i try contacting them but there is no online chat. you spend 30 minutes waiting on the phone only to be transferred around or cut off!!

They refuse to let you cancel your contract. I'm not the only one having trouble canceling.
I took out a rolling monthly contract on a mobile phone for my son.
My son lost his phone in September 2018 so in November 2018 after not being able to find it I rang up to cancel it. The guy on the phone said that because the bank account that the direct debit was coming out of didn't match their records I was unable to cancel. I told him that if I have the wrong account how am I able to cancel the direct debit. I then cancelled the direct debit whilst being on the phone to him as I'm not going to pay for something I don't have.
Yesterday January 2019 I received a letter saying that they are going to cancel my account and I owe them money. I rang up and after 25 minutes of being passed from pillar to post they still won't cancel the account.
I then emailed them and told the everything that has happened and even included a bank statement showing my account number and the direct debit. I told them I don't mind paying the 1 months notice from November but I'm not paying an extra 4 months on top.
Guess what?
They still won't let me cancel.
After googling I have found several other people that are also being robbed by this company because they won't let them cancel their account.

Am a business customer and have never managed to get to speak to Tech support for business - minimum 30/40 min wait time every time you try. Short answer, employ more staff!Prices go up alarmingly but the service gets poorer and poorer. When you ring, the system seems to be designed to send you around the houses, frustrating timewasting and insulting. I will be moving to another supplier, Plusnet are not efficeient, accessible or organised enough to continue to get my business. Really dissapointing, in the last six months Plusnet have gone downhill signficantly - overpriced and underserviced.

BE CAREFUL - THIS COMPANY IS TERRIBLE! DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THEM!

I changed to plusnet from Sky and immediately started having problems where the internet would cut out several times a day. Tried to use the online help functionality but the broadband would cut out half way through each time and I had to start again. Called in twice and eventually got the issue resolved after a month. Then have moved house. First engineer appointment was just cancelled - no information before just that it had been moved to a later date. I called in to advise that I would not be at the address at the later date and would need a call beforehand to make sure I was there to let the engineer in. Was told that this was anyway standard practice so not to worry. Now got an email saying the engineer was unable to do the installation. I have been waiting all morning for the call and have missed no calls. This is a hopeless hopeless service and I will be cancelling asap.

I cancelled my order because BT couldn't install a line into my building. Plusnet made no effort to resolve this or re-book an engineer. I cancelled the order and am due a refund of almost £70. I have now been waiting over 40 days for the refund. i have had to send them my bank statements to prove they haven't already sent me the refund because they "can't find it on their system." They are impossible to get in touch with on the phone. The only response I get from them is in the public forums. Once you do get a response from their support, the lead times to get a response from the relevant teams is ridiculous. In my case, 10 working days to get a response from the accounts/billings team. I contact them well within working hours and then get a response from them after 6pm saying everyone has gone home.

Absolutely disgusted with the fibre broadband, can't even watch a film on Netflix without it buffering continuously. I couldn't even put this review on here using plusnet's WiFi, I've had to use my mobile data. I've put it a complaint and the customer service is extremely unhelpful when you finally get through after in excess of a 30 minute wait. It's appalling I'm going to complain to the ombudsman . I can't go on for 18 months with this rubbish WiFi. An old modem would be quicker.

Trying to contact customer services, means being on hold for 15 to 20 minute, trying to contact technical support the wait time tonight is 60 minutes.
Plusnet used to provide a good service, now their prices have gone up and their level of service has gone down.
I phoned the other day to see if they had a better and cheaper deal, they said they did not. I advised them I will be cancelling my contract in February 2019 and moving to a new provider.
Funny how they tell me I am getting a broadband speed of 36mb yet iPlayer constinatly buffers and tonight for the past 90 mins the WiFi box has a orange light constinatly flashing and it won't restart. Have rebooted the box 6 times and the orange light continues flashing.
I'm not prepared to wait 60 mins on a phone tonight to speak to technical support.

Avoid Plusnet, they used to be good, please don't waste your money paying for their poor service.
I will be changing provider and Plusnet will not be getting a cancellation fee as they are not providing the service I have paid for

I am appalled by Plusnet, I Keep getting fobbed off. After waiting ages and I really mean ages to ever get connected to an adviser. I complain about my speed and reliability. They tell me they will "boost it". nothing happens! I asked to leave, they tell me I am under contract still, after about 10 years??? High speed fibre is just outside, and both my neighbours have it with BT and they get 50mb plus. Plusnet say its not in the area. I say come and have a look. I am then told its exclusive to BT. I asked to be released from my so called contract without charge. The advisor says she will transfer me to yet another department. Guess what? I am then cut off. I am truly sick of this, especially after so many broken promises. What can I do?

Swapped from BT fibre to Plusnet fibre on Monday morning - HUGE MISTAKE. Took 3 weeks from order being placed to connection and they only give 14 days from date order placed to cancel so like me if you get connected then have issues you’re stuck with them. Broadband is fine, phone line is fine but imagine my horror to be told less than 24hrs after connection they don’t guarantee Wi-fi connection despite providing a Wi-fi router? All mobile devices and my Mac say connected to Wi-fi but NONE of them actually connect to the internet .... well my mobile does if sat next to router but it’s snail paced. The to add insult to injury I’m advised it’s going to be £209 to cancel as I’m outside the 14 day period - fuming

Plusnet is a joke.
They charge extra if u don't keep an eye on ur statement. Their broadband can let u down randomly. Then u have to pay to fix it. The waiting time when u call them has never been less than half an hour. Unless ur calling to join them then it's different story..... I will never have a contract with them again. I can't wait for my contract to finish.... They missed me up big time.

Bad experience I started. My broadband super very slow and buffer every 5-10 while my kids are watching. Then they cut my phone line with out any reason why. It's been more than a month I can't use the phone service and I'm paying £31 without any service they offer and call waiting time to connect with them is 30-50 mins and still they don't rectify the problem. Bad service

The worse worse worse worse broadand providers ever.
Broadband reliability 000000.0000 it can stop working anytime. It has stoped working twice for me for no reason and I didn't not get help. Instead they were hiding behind differentissues.
Broadband speed is normal when it's working
Customer service is very bad. I have been on the phone for lone time and j didn't get nothing sorted instead they told me to close this account and open a new one.

Overall satisfaction. Oooooo.oooo

I called them and sorted out an issues. Then whenever I call them back I find that I still have to deal with the same issue again and again. So each time i have to deal with the same issue .Worse, in order to cover for their luck of service, and luck of profrsionalism they proposed to me to close this account and open an other one. Knowing that in this case I will have to pay two accounts until my first contract run out. I mean, it's extra money for them, but for me, instead of doing my work I'll be setting up a new account and paying for two accounts.
They are the worse providers ever. I never had any issue with any other provider. Although they all belong to the same company. They are not all the same.

I have finally managed to solve my problem regarding poor fibre speeds seven months after moving into my new house. It has taken countless phone calls to CS and them failing to call back to arrange an engineer who diagnosed the problem in 5 minutes.

The CS is dreadful and I’d avoid plusnet at all costs and will leave as soon as I am able.

I was trying to reset my password using my android mobile phone. The site is not working properly: when you click on the "reset" button nothing happens. I get into a chat and ask for assistance. Assistance? No way, I was patronised and harassed for being a woman. Told to get a family member to help me cause I was doing something wrong, there is no such a thing as a reset button, you are licking in mobile option instead of Broadband as you should, etc etc. I asked a friend to do the same from her mobile (not android) and it worked. I reckon their QA did not spot the fault in their website yet. It is clear for the that the link is broken but "Shanny" on the chat does not seem to understand that and assume "Ana" is dumb and does not know how to reset a password. I wish I could add the screenshots I took of the conversation. Disgusting. I wish it was 2 weeks ago and I would have cancelled the service.

They have fiddled around with the firmware on their HUB ONE ROUTER and now the dual band doesn't work properly with 2.4GHz signal becoming very weak, unstable and frequently dropping out. They are dragging their feet with a fix and in the meantime we are seriously struggling with certain devices. I recommend no-one joins Plusnet because their customer service is slow and inadequate when something goes wrong.

I am moving home and told them not to send an engineer to the new home UNTIL I OWNED IT. I got an email from them telling me that they would sent an engineer to the new home on JAN 6 2019. I font even own it and will not be in it until the 11th. You would think this was simple to change: not on your life. call waiting time 20 minutes. Call waiting time for new contracts: instant. This tells me so much about the way they treat customers that have been with them since 2006. Now I am trying to get hold of them to pay the exit fee. I will move to Virgin who will not charge me line installation. PlusNet. You have really disappointed me.

It's not the fastest, but is reliable, and I have had no problems at all with Plusnet, apart from not being notified when my contract ended and my bills going up, but they don't have any obligation to do that and, really I should have been on top of it myself. That said, when I rang up, and explained some difficult circumstances I have had over the past few months, they reinstated me as a new customer and given me a whacking discount to try and help out, 'bearing in mind the horrible situation'. CS rep was delightful, and really cheerful 'good luck with 2019 I hope it's better for you'!

Sussex Plusnet  
I have been with plusnet for 15years and more. My whole family were setup with mailboxes on the same account. Over the last couple of years plusnet have limited the total mailbox size of all 4 of our accounts added together to 1Gb and have repeatedly archived the largest inbox. Fair enough, that is their policy, they give us plenty of warning and as they say on the help desk "we don't provide e-mail, we would suggest you get another account like Gmail". However, the last time they archived an account it took four weeks to reinstate the e-mails, when they promise 3-4 days. So in the end we decided as a family to leave Plusnet.
On a quick enquiry in carphone warehouse we soon realised that 15 years of loyalty meant Plusnet were screwing us for an extra £20 per month. So a good thing moving to Talktalk, who incidentally take 2 minutes to answer the phone as opposed to Plusnet's usual 30minutes.

However, that is when the real rubbish started. Talktalk proposed a transfer date of 24th December 2018. About 7 days before I rang Plusnet to enquire about setting up e-mail forwarding to our new Gmail accounts. Advice from the plusnet help desk was that this could be managed via plusnet webmail and that webmail would be accessible after the account closed. A few days later I went into webmail to find absolutely no ability to setup any forwarding facility. The account then closed on the 24th and all webmail accounts instantly became inaccessible. On contacting plusnet I was then told that the whole account had been "destroyed", that there was no way of reinstating it and that I should have asked to transfer my account to an e-mail only account. But that cannot now happen as they had "destroyed" 15yrs of records, emails, data.
Call me a little sensitive, but as far as I can see that classes as a really awful service. My daughter now has no way to receive job application replies that she needs. And according to Plusnet, the only way they can re-setup our e-mail address is by transferring our phone line back to plusnet. Again, call me Mr Cynical, but the suggestion by Plusnet that I consider defaulting on a 2yr contract with Talktalk so that I can re-access a plusnet e-mail account that I had been assured would still be accessible, strikes me as a bit of a leap of faith.
Actually Plusnet, I have registered a complaint and when you also fail to deliver on that, then I am going to the ombudsman.
Do you care? I doubt it!
But I bet your adverts won't crow about that.
We'll see you right! Perhaps the word shafted should be added in there.

I've been with Plusnet right from the early days of dialup and I'm now on their Unlimited Fibre service. I've found them always utterly reliable, speed of connection always in line with what's promised (I get around 70mbps download, 18mbps upload) and whenever there has been a rare problem it's always been resolved quickly. Their technicians know what they are talking about, are UK based and are very polite and extremely helpful. I would have no hesitation at all in heartily recommending Plusnet.

The call centre wait times are a min of 30 minutes. Nice people to speak to but the Router is rubbish. If you live in a busy WiFi area avoid them as it can't cope with having to change channels to get a better reception. Because of this the download speed drops to 0.05mb and they say that isn't their problem apparently. I'm not paying for dial up modem speed

Acaster Malbis, york Plusnet  
Been with them for the first 18months, after which contract ended and i was informed but instead they went into my account to charge almost double what i was paying before contract ended.
Took me almost 2hrs to get through to them and one customer service agent said the price changed because old contract finish and it automatically got renewed at new rate, but after arguing this he decided the renew the contract at a higher rate than what i was paying but i agreed because it was just few quids difference and cant be bothered changing provider.
But to my greater surprise plusnet started charging me much more than what was agreed and when i tried calling them, they ask me to pay the bill and they will refund the difference.
I totally disagree to this and got frustrated and told them to terminate the contract as i believe they have lied to me about the product price.
Few weeks later, plusnet sending me bill over £200 pounds for early termination. Are they actually serious after a member of staff at plusnet called the bogus bill i was sent a mistake rather than a breach of contract.

I have been without phone for at least two weeks. The broadband drops frequently and when I reported this to Plusnet, the best response I got was to phone them! It's not the first time my phone has been out of order for at least two weeks at a time, it's usually at fault in the cabling, but it's still up to Plusnet to get it dealt with. I have been a customer of Plusnet for many years and this is the first time I've felt strongly about their service to want to leave.

I have been with them for a year. My speed was assessed as 8Mbps with minimum 1Mbps. The speed at the beginning was okay but since summer 2018 it started to fluctuate rarely reaching 8Mbps but often being close to 0Mbps (0.05Mbps, etc). I called customer service a number of times but the issue would only be resolved sometimes for a limited time. I didn't get any compensation for often useless broadband. I switched now to other provider and have no problem with steady and reliable speed whatsoever. Avoid Plusnet.

I left Plusnet over a year ago terminated my account in the correct manner and paid my final bill . I have received several emails and texts informing me that I will not be getting broadband or my phone service due to me not paying my bill . I have had several as in 30 or 40 of these which I have responded to which I was informed it was there fault as they had not closed my account properly , and they would do it there and then and cancel any charges, which there are non anyway it was due to them not closing my account properly . Again today I received a text and email starting I owed £1.23 I was informed if I paid this it would close my account once and for all . I have paid this but I can inform you Plusnet I believe you must owe me somewhere in the region of €25 plus in phone calls and hanging on to hear your poor excuses . If I have an email or a text from you in the future . I will go to the ombudsmen . YOU ARE HARRASSING A CUSTOMER WHO LEFT OVER A YEAR AGO AND SETTLED ALL OUTSANDING DEBT .

Switched from Virgin to Plusnet, though not my idea. Land line didn't work and no internet. Engineers visited, apparently there was a problem with the line inside. Trouble is it was the same line our phone was on before and it only stopped working after Plusnet connected us. They keep fobbing off and lying to my wife telling her why they can't connect and the work that needs to be done. Always different. They start telling stories about why the internet doesn't work, which is a bit foolish because I'm a techie in ecommerce

Plusnet has been the bane of my life from the moment I first had anything to do with them. I was bombarded with text messages and emails until they realised I had requested to cancel my order and they, therefore, owed me money. I haven't heard a peep from them since! It's almost as if they think if they ignore a problem for long enough it will just go away.I have been waiting weeks, if not months now for a refund.

Plusnet  
Broadband is intermitted and has a sharp drop off of speeds in the evenings. I have stayed with them for 2 years because the upside is there are some incredibly cheap packages if you're willing to sign a contract for a year. (The first year i paid line rental for a year up front, and broadband was free, the second year the broadband was £1 per month). Time has come, and patience with the slow and intermittent broadband has run out. I tried to call the customer services line to check I have no cancellation fees, only to find that the opening times listed on the website of 07:30am - 10pm every day are completely incorrect. According to the automated message (WHICH CAME AFTER GOING THROUGH THE MENU) the phone line is open for just a bit longer than the standard working week.

Terrible and sloppy. Would not recommend even for the price.

Absolutely shocking service, our router has been faulty for months, yet they won't replace it having now exhausted all possible solutions because it's out of warranty.

I've rang up several times over the period of nearly a year, with the same issues and tried everything they have suggested to make it work.

I have been out of contract for some time and would have been happy to stay with them paying monthly had they resolved this ongoing problem (I wasn't willing to enter a new contract incase the problem didn't go away).

They can shove their months free broadband, as I don't want a month of crap wifi for free, I want the router working. Also a 45min wait time each and every time I've had the please of phoning them.

Nobody came on the agreed date and time. I called Plusnet and they said we emailed to say we changed the date. Plusnet had changed date to the next day. They didnt send a messge, a letter or call to say they had changed the date. They emailed us when they knew we didn't have access to the internet. We were charged £65 because we didn't give  48 hours notice for the date of the engineer to be changed. They ruined our evening with their terrible cutomer skills and tried very hard to pin the blame on us. DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY!!
London Plusnet  
I wish I had looked at this site first. This has been an awful experience. Wrong dates promised. Engineers turning up when the date has been changed. You get emails which you know are wrong, but cannot notify them of mistakes as email does not reply, so you have to call them and wait 1 hour to get through. DON'T, it's a shambles
Glasgow Plusnet  
Cannot give this company any stars whatsoever apart from money grabbing.
They took an immediate payment of £31.99 for a "connection" fee.
However after a better offer from my current provider I declined the changeover and asked for a refund.
Over a month later I am still waiting, been told it was being processed more times than I can remember, first it was up to 5 working days, then up to ten, now they are saying that it will be neither instead it will be sent by cheque, guess what after a month still no refund, what an incompetent couldn't care outfit.
The add says`we will do you proud.
DAMNED RIGHT, Well and truly

This is the worst company I have ever dealt with. First they send an engineer that wrongly told me I need access to the neighbours house for a phone line. Then they send me one text with a another date, then a get another text with a different date, only for the engineer to turn up on the first. The list goes on, I eventually cancelled broadband and complained. I was meant to be getting my initial deposit of £80 back, still waiting. The left hand does not know what the right hand is doing, pathetic. DO NOT GO WITH THIS COMPANY, is my advice. ps impossible to get on the phone, up to an hour wait.

I have signed up with them over a month ago and still have heard nothing from them. only an email to say there is a problem. no other details. There is no way to contact the customer service as they don't provide an email address and you cannot reply to the automated emails they send.
the online chat is usually switched off, stating that they are busy with other customers, and the phone number has a wait time of over an hour.

Horrible service. Started a contract with them and they started charging me, even though I still have no Internet connection due to technical issues.

They avoid sending a technician and they try constantly to claim there is a fault in the house installation so they can charge another £65 for the repair. I Keep explaining them that I just moved into the house so I can't be faulted for anynthing but they don't listen, they just keep mailing me their generic "fix it yourself" email that is not helping at all.

Absolutely horrible, avoid at all costs.

Unless your purchasing a product as a new customer you have no chance of getting through on the phone.Currently writing this to pass the time whilst on hold.

I can honestly say Plusnet's customer support is always outstanding and so many other companies could learn a lot from them. Thanks :)

Plusnet Joe had better start looking for a new job !
Plusnet what on earth has happened to your customer service?
Having been a customer for over seven years, I previously used to recommend them to friends, due to their friendly helpful customer service.
However due to recent supply issues and obstructive, manipulative responses received from their “CSC Analyst’s” I can no longer recommend PlusNet to anyone!
They now seem to automatically start with the presumption that any reported fault is in the customer’s premises and could not possibly be part of the external Openreach network.
There are serious problems with their communication (Lack of information and updates to their customers) and also problems with their billing system where they are charging customers the incorrect amounts and not as per their agreed contract.
I am not sure what has promoted this dramatic decline in service and current behaviour towards the customer, but they fail to take ownership of issues to ensure that their customers receive the service that they pay for and that PlusNet are contractually responsible to provide.

Utter rubbish – there are a subsidiary of British telecom and so no better than them. The customer service was terrible and the only way that you can cancel or terminate your contract is by Sending a recorded delivery letter or by phone. I have spent almost 3 hours on the phone trying to get through to the right department to do the cancellation and lo and behold I’m never put through to the right place. It’s both illegal and disgusting.

Had nothing but problems with Plusnet since I signed up. You're supposed to have a 14 day grace period the moment your new bill is put in place so that if you can't pay your bill on time, you still have a set number of days before they add any restrictions to your account. Do you think I get that service? Hell no. Today is just another example of their mocking. They chose the date that I pay on, despite me claiming several times that they won't get their money that day due to it not being my pay day, but they didn't budge, instead choosing to tell me "You'll have 14 days to make the payment before we add any restrictions." which was the initial reason I switched to them to begin with, but instead, they add the restrictions the exact same day that the bill is due, completely breaching their contract with me (meaning I do have the right to terminate) and then adding restrictions to their own website so I can't connect to click the 'Not ready to pay?' option. Nor could I get onto it to get Live Chat support, or just to log in and pay if I had the money. If they don't want their money that bad, then that's no problem for me. But considering they know my difficult situation regarding why I need the internet, not want it, and that it's all apparently 'written in my notes' on their end, they don't seem to have any trouble messing me about at every possible opportunity. I've been their customer for over a year now and cannot recall a single time when this has never happened to me. Obviously their motto 'We'll make you proud' and their claim of being 'there for the people' is about as legitimate as my claim to the throne!

Personally, we should revolt against this disgrace of a company and come together to petition against their joke of a company, then send it in to trading standards, watch dog, and ofcom. Let's get the results we deserve from them!

Amazed to read so much negativity on this forum relating to Plusnet. I switched to them from BT some years ago after years of what can only be described as personal abuse.
No, they're not perfect - and their service has declined under BT's ownership, but you do (eventually) get to speak to a UK agent - rather than someone on the other side of the world with English as 2nd or 3rd language.
As with most things in life, you get what you pay for, and while we all chase the cheapest deal suppliers will make service decisions based on profit rather than offer the service that we all crave - but seem unwilling to pay for. Check out with friends & family what broadband costs in other countries !

I signed up on 5/11/18 they took £23 out my sccount
Been chasing them for days to find out why I’m not connected. They said this is due to the system cancelling

When I asked to speak to management they didn’t put me on hold and just started a conversation amongst themselves
In Urdu then they said all day these customers have been complaining

When I asked the manager to listen to the call coincidently the call hadn’t been recorded

Hope the company gets shut down poor customer service they ain’t interested in you just your money avoid

I cannot recommend this company in anyway shape or form, the speed although supposedly averaged at 11 Mbps, mine when it wasn't offline was 3.9 Mbps. Trying to get through to seek help/advice was pointless as the waiting time was at the minimum of 35 minutes. Having decided to go with another provider and because of the vagueness of the transfer date, then I am being charged an early leaving fee because I am leaving 20 days early although I am paid up to the end of my contract. Absolutely disgusted with this provider.

Customer service extremely slow took me over 50 minutes to get through heard a lot of rubbish music to keep me amused!! The router came quickly but I was not told that I needed to phone and activate so when my old supplier finished I have been left approximately 7 days without anything. I explained a difficult situation regarding someone with learning difficulties that requires the internet however the slow workings of plusnet could not accommodate or move any faster, difficult when someone relies on something they have limited understanding of. I was going to have plusnet in my own home at the end of my contract with BT however have had to have second thoughts about this, so would not recommend this company to anyone, please take note go elsewhere.

In the end I rang my current provider and was told Plusnet had not contacted them to say I was leaving, this was now 25/11/18 finally on the 26/11/18 I contacted my bank and they refunded my money. Beware Plusnet customer service is very very poor so glad I didn't go with them in the end.

Switched to Plusnet at least 6 years ago and service was great. Unfortunately, over the years customer support became less accessible (on hold on the phone for over an hour before giving up, and webchat constantly busy), and the price became less competitive. Eventually switched provider in early August, except Plusnet didn't close the account (despite the service having migrate and them no longer providing a service). Was pestered with requests for payments for months that I was no longer a customer. Eventually my account was officially closed, all good, except they now claim I owe money from the date that they closed the account rather than when the service discontinued and forwarded the "debt" request to a collection agency. I understand that I am far from the only person in this scenario. I have filed a complaint with Ofcom and have advised them that there will be repercussions if my credit rating is affected. Whereas I would have once highly recommended Plusnet, I would now have to strenuously discourage.

However, they still cannot get me to my minimum guaranteed speed, never mind the speed I had (on the same line) as BT. This is now week 4 of contacting them.

The worst customer services their adverts about good customer services is untrue
I signed up to Plusnet after a reasonable spell with sky who incidentally have excellent customer services
I signed up online and through a glitch on their website ended up being charging twice!
So I had the unpleasant experience of having to get in contact with an agent, this took me over 60 minutes to get through to an advisor!
My contract was arranged on the 17th of October and I waited patiently for my router to arrive
I finally gave up today (21st November) and after another 60 minute wait to get through to an advisor cancelled my account and now have to wait up to 30 days to get a refund
The thing that is very clear is that Plusnet has the worst customer services of any of the big broadband providers, even worse than Talk Talk which is really saying something!
So anyone reading this please be careful, Plusnet make big claims about their customer services but the truth is that this is completely misleading
They are dysfunctional and virtually impossible to get in contact with, I did not receive the service I signed up to even though they were quick to take my money.
I rank plusnet the worst broadband service provider with the worst customer services

Appalling service. As a long term customer I have witnessed the service go from being excellent to absolutely appalling. Gone are the days of a quick helpful reply from the help desk; yesterday I was held in a queue twice and on both occasions for over 50 minutes. I then tried online chat only to spend 25 minutes on that before the staff member then told me they couldn't help me and that I should call them again - despite the fact that I had already explained I had tried twice already.
Service at Plusnet is now a joke - to continue to claim that their service is award winning is somewhat disingenuous.

Quiet possibly the worst service I have ever come across, signed up on the 24th of October and still waiting to be connected as of today, tried contacting customer service which is an absolute joke, you can be on the phone for over 40 minutes waiting. I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole

The speeds became ok after converting to fibre, reliability also improved. But customer service, oh my god. Virtually impossible to get a hold of them. Sorting out problems takes ages. They billed me for an extra month as a mistake and I'm still trying to get that refund sorted out.

Awful service, really disappointed considering the adverts.

Called to make an order, fairly painless - then got a text that they'd changed the date for the engineer. Fair enough, happens but meant this wouldn't work for me so cancelled the order.

I had my 80 quid returned then taken back 5 days later on the 5th of November. It's now the 19th and I'm still waiting for this to come back after 14 days and three calls including a 40 minute, 20 minute and 40 minute wait on the phone to a charged number. Not only that, the ticket was responded to on the online helpdesk by me on the 6th and have had no response since, what a joke. Would never recommend, will never use again.

Was really looking forward to the high levels of service reported too.

Moved to plusnet fibre after getting annoyed with BT infinity: poor performance and really, really, really bad customer service with BT which prompted the change. The poor performance remained on switchover but after the stabilisation period, I reported it online to plusnet on a sunday night, and the very next morning, an openreach engineer was already outside my house. Two weeks later, the fault was fixed (bad battery contact?) and the broadband speeds are maxed out (70MBit down, 11Mbit up). Good communication from plusnet throughout too.
Only been with them for three months now, but ultra happy so far.

In recent years I've had broadband from EE, SKY, BT and without any doubt Plusnet are the worst provider of them all. Customer service is a joke and if you phone them you will wait at least 30 minutes before they answer.
I am suffering multiple wifi dropouts on an almost daily basis and Plusnet's advice is to source a solution myself because they cannot guarantee a stable wifi connection. My Nest cam is 4 feet away from the Plusnet router with nothing but fresh air between them, yet it is constantly dropping out. I have the same issue with my Android phone and MacBook.
Terrible Company who cannot supply the service they are charging you for.

Absolutely shocking. Worlds slowest internet. Constantly drops and goes off line for two to three hours a few days a week. Customer service is nonexistent. Phone them and the wait is generally over two hours. I have been forced to communicate via Facebook. When I do get a response, it’s always, nothing wrong on our side, so it’s your devices. How is no internet my fault??? Stay away not worth the hassle.

Avoid this company. Broadband speeds were always non exist. Unable to function. Regularly cut out. Customer service waits vary between 30 and 50 mins. They froze my account when I moved out and transfered my Internet. After two weeks they still hadn't set up. They then said they made a mistake and it would take another two weeks. Two weeks later they announced I had given the wrong address. They then claimed they would listen to the phone calls to prove I had. They then admitted that they had made the mistake and cancelled my contract for free. However three months later they are still billing me! Despite ringing countless times I've only been able to stay on the line long enough for them to answer once. And they hung up on me. Unbelievable

PlusNet has the most appalling service I have ever experienced in my life. It took months to get it up an running (they always blamed openreach for that) and made me waste an enormous amount of time dealing with their waiting time to take calls and their incompetence. Months later, after all the grief, they are now out of the blue trying to add installation costs (which I paid upfront). I was drawn to them by the Which? review
I would say, stay away from both!

AN HOUR ON THE PHONE TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE??? I JOINED PLUSNRT BECAUSE OF SUPPOSEDLY GOOD SERVICE. THINK NOT!

The service isn’t working and I’m already thinking of cancelling for a full refund. Luckily I am within my 14 days period. I wouldn’t even mind the no-service if I could speak to them.
I finally managed to speak to some attitude person and had enough. Now I am waiting for another 18 MINUTES to go through cancellation.
PLUSNET SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!
London Plusnet  
Absolutely rediculous! I signed up with Plusnet and paid for installation. As soon as I paid, they move the installation date back and say there's no availability on the date that I booked it in the first place! Seems like all they want is your money and don't actually care about their customers in reality. Oh, and if you want to speak to customer service to try and resolve anything, don't bother! You'll just be waiting in a long queue and your problem most probably won't get resolved.

I've had Plusnet broadband for over 10 years and they used to be great. Over the last 3 or 4 years the speed, reliability and customer has really gone down hill.

I finally moved away from them in October as the standard ADSL I had was down to 4mb down and .75mb up and was very very unstable, tech support weren't interested and they weren't bothered when I told them I was moving supplier - the best offer was FTC at a higher price!

I'm now using someone else and get 16mb down and 7mb up for less money - I'm a long way from the cabinet hence low speed.

I've just realised tonight that are still billing me and its an hour wait to speak to someone to get a refund.

Plusnet used to be great - now they're pretty poor and there are much better and cheaper alternatives.

Never use Plusnet. Their costumer service is awful. I have spent hours on hold to them over the past 2 months trying to cancel my account. Despite my attempts to make a final payment, they still charged me a "late payment" fee, I have been misinformed and messed around, yet they still insisted on me paying £14 extra for a late payment.

I had been a customer for 4 years with no problems, then my broadband speed kept dropping to the point I could do nothing online. We decided to upgrade to a faster speed and had two weeks cooling off period. During this time we decided that really we shouldn't have to upgrade to get Internet but to expect plusnet to provided us with what we were paying them for. Their cancellation policy you can cancel within 2 weeks by speaking to the customer services team. I did this 10 days into my cooling off period and told them to cancel and I wanted to revert to my previous contact. I was told this was not possible and that I would have to take out another contract. I then stated that I would be cancelling them altogether and would be looking for an alternative provider. I asked for them to email me confirmation of the cancellation and my call was terminated whilst talking to them . Within the hour my internet connection had been cut off. I called customer services the next day, and notified them of a change of provider,and they confirmed the cancellation was going through and I would not need to do anything else. One month one and I get a final bill of £150 early cancellation fee. Very disappointed with plusnets response to this, or willingness to resolve, and quite happy to take money for nothing. Will not use them again.

We’ll do you proud. What a joke!! All you’ve done for me is to lose me my landline number which I’ve had for over 30 years. I switched providers approximately mid October. Everything went smoothly. I ordered fibre because my previous provider would sometimes go off due to poor signal. I was assured it was a better speed etc than what I already had. Came activation day Nov 2nd. I switched routers etc and began logging my various pieces of equipment into my new provider. First in was my TV. A message appeared telling me my speed wasn’t good enough and to contact my provider. JOKE!! First call rang for 20 mins then I had to go out 2nd attempt 42mins I let it ring. I then rang and selected the option “l
I’m leaving “. I was answered immediately. When I was put through to the correct department ( immediately) I explained that nothing was running because speed was too low. The guy looked at my package and told me that they couldn’t improve the speed because of where I lived and so they were cancelling my order and refunding my money and to try elsewhere. He then hung up. I decided to go back to my previous provider but now I’ve no internet and no phone line because they’d cut me off. Because they’d done that my landline number has gone back into the general number pool and my new provider can’t get it back. I’m running the internet through my mobile phone, using it as a temporary router, which is costing me money and I’m waiting for a new landline number and my new activation date to start. Do you proud? Do you an injury more like. I’d never ever recommend you to anyone.

Wouldn't even recommend this broadband. They are so sneaky it's unreal! Transaction was taken automatically out every month (as suppose to) We believed they were still receiving these payments but they left it a whole two months to say they haven't received these payments we found out because they turned the broadband off..took it straight to a debit agency..without sending a letter not even once to give us notice or warning us..as we could of resolved this and made payment.. But as we didn't know we couldn't stop this going to debit agency. I took this higher to speak to their manager.. All they said they sent email (before I singed up with them I said I don't use my email)..but still required for my email. Funny enough once I spoke to their manager about how its not been doubt with in the right way or warning and stated how I didn't even receive a letter.. Yesterday 2/11/18 I got a letter from them (as I said I should of recieved a letter on first payment that weren't done) they sent one which explained yesterday that I was sent to debit agency and my bill was 300 and something pounds.. This letter has no date on it what's so ever so they've clearly covered there backs as every letter you have from company ALWAYS has a date on.. I'm appalled their are better broadband company's out there and this definitely isnt it. (I've had to write this on here for my mother as she didn't use technology.. She prefer the letter stysem way)..

It's a matter of regret that plusnet is doing business as a fastest internet service provider where they themselves don't know what does it mean to them. My internet service has gone down for last two days and every time I call them, the telephone service informs that the waiting time is 60 minutes! How this can be possible in a country like UK where people are running to get things faster! I'm totally pissed off with this company's poor service!!!

Applied to change over to plusnet for phone and broadband. Paid connection fee and set up standing order. After hearing nothing for 10 days rang and waited 25 mins to speak to someone to be told the order hadn't gone live so would have to start again. Then 2 days later email saying order had been cancelled. Another 20 min wait to speak to someone. Eventually a month later phone went live but broadband didn't work. Now I'm trying to contact someone and have already been waiting 25 minutes! Absolute joke wish I'd not bothered! Avoid plusnet is my advice! 0 stars for everything!

Do not use PlusNet. They sneakily started charging me £35 a month for basic home broadband and line rental without informing me. So I rang up to cancel my contract with then and they shut down my broadband supply less than an hour of my phone call to them. Cowboy outfit, my advice is stay well clear of these amateurs

Called to cancel my contract in due time to prepare for a provider switch because new provider could actually deliver what they promised, customer service was rude and didn't cancel the service.
Was charged when service was supposed to be finished, called in explaining I sent emails and did calls to cancel, customer service confirmed and said not to worry. Next week I find out I have my name blacklisted because of lack of payment of a service they told me not to worry that was cancelled. Obnoxious joke!
Credit score ruined for lack of competence, communication and disregard for clients!
Asked access to my personal information which they are required to send to me by law in 1 month time. Still waiting 3 months later.
Only good thing out of this is that Plusnet is digging a huge hole for themselves for when this goes to higher authorities.

I have been waiting around a month for plusnet to get my broadband up and running. I have spend around 4 hours in total sitting on hold and have still not managed to speak to anyone capable of setting up a router- which doesn’t bode well for a broadband company. Currently sat in a 30 minute queue to cancel my account.

Absolutely terrible, I'm getting around 14 meg download speed and it's supposed to be super fast broadband. Also the WiFi keeps dropping out. I called to tell them all of this and to tell them that I'm moving to virgin. I was given a load of vacuous excuses and hit with an early cancellation fee, I'm not happy about paying it but at least I'll be rid of plusnet and I can have some decent broadband.

We would have given a -* if there was one! Absolutely awful, beyond a joke!
Initially speed slowed, rang to query, PN claims no issue! When PN discovered we know a bit about broadband, PN offered us two months free service, but then tried to say its only for line rental, not broadband! After more phone calls to complain, PN agreed includes BBand.
Then, we found we were charged for BBand the next month, when it's suppose to be free!
More phone calls, PN says their accounts doesn't show the charge! Had to forward bank statement copies etc, which we did.
No reply, no refund still
NOW, we receive an invoice for £40.80 for following month when it should still be our 2nd free month!
We've left PN, cancelled direct debit, lodged formal complaint with Ombudsman and instructed bank to claim back the £20.99.
Guess what? Just received another email from PN, saying they hate goodbyes, offering £19.99 service!
Talking about the bad penny ...
Avoid at all costs unless you're game for a journey through hell and back!

Ordered and paid for Plusnet broadband to be installed back in August, engineer was supposed to install it on 24th September between 1pm and 6pm. They changed the time I requested to a time I couldn't manage and I had to make several calls, each time waiting 20 to 30 minutes to speak to a person, before I got the original time slot reinstated. Organised to be at home that afternoon however at 5pm got a text saying the engineer wasn't coming and I needed to reschedule within the next 2 weeks. This wasn't possible (I work and they don't do evenings or weekends and won't narrow their 5 hour time slots)so I cancelled installation and was told I would get a refund of my £73. This was on 24th September. Phoned on 9th October as I had not received a refund only to be told they hadn't bothered doing anything as they can't put the money back in my account and they need to issue a cheque - my bank is online, no branches. After getting nowhere with either of the people I spoke to I agreed to accept a cheque which they said I would get to me in 15 days. 15 days later, no cheque. Phoned yet again, apparently they meant 15 working days and I will have the cheque by Monday.
Today is that Monday, and still no cheque.
My money, Plusnet has held since August, failed to show at the appointed time to install and failed to refund despite agreeing they would over a month ago. Tried to phone, minumum 20 minute wait time. To quote one of their managers, "what do you expect me to do"

Mitcham Plusnet  
I had plusnet for two years , the broadband speed and reliability was so so, but I stayed due to price and their much heralded customer service. I came to the end of my deal and decided to leave. Tis is when I saw another side to the company. I explicitly told them I would be leaving, they received notification that I was leaving by new provider, have still sent me a bill for a service I no longer receive from them. I have had numerous calls to say this has been corrected but still getting emails trying to recover the bill, they said would be cancelled back on the 12th October and they in fact owe me money has I cancelled the service and I had paid in advance for the following month (that is how they charge). When I have been dealing with their customer service I have found them to be rude and misleading. Not wanting to hear what my difficulties are but just going numerous times thru data identity protocols first. Then I am still in a position of again having to resolve the billing issue but when I call no matter what time of day they are dealing with a high volume of calls and the wait time is going to be anywhere between 15 to 30 minutes

Absolutely useless. Broadband in and out like a fiddler's elbow! Mainly out though so home security cameras off line for 3 weeks of September. Cancelled my contract as Plusnet not fulfilling their part of it. Went to pay last bill on-line - Error page, phone lines say 5 mins waiting, currently at 15 mins while typing. Previously was at 50 mins so just moved to Virgin, lost patience waiting. Still can't pay on line, all emails are no reply - Why bother with Plusnet, they've clearly over subscribed and cannot cope which means you will never have good service no matter what. Very poor.

In transferring our broadband to our new home, PlusNet accidentally cut our phone & broadband services 2 weeks early, leaving me, my wife and our 1 year old child totally cutoff while trying to move house (there's no mobile signal in the middle of Exmoor). Upon learning the consequences of their needless mistake, PlusNet chose to...shrug. I told them about the precarious nature of trying to move house with a 1 year old without any telecommunications, and with a certain amount of actual physical danger, and they managed only a limp apology. I had anticipated at least some kind of compensation to reflect the distress and very real danger we were put through by their cock-up, but they offered not a sausage, and seemed determined instead to slither out of such basic human decency. Once we'd finally moved (not easy for all the above reasons) I felt compelled to change providers. Can you blame me? I received no contact from PlusNet asking why I wanted to leave. Once I had left I finally heard from them: they told me I owed them a £165 'early cancellation fee'. This was an insult to an already egregious injury. To know my particular situation, to have it articulated clearly and respecffully, and to still happily leave me - and my family - swinging in the wind, then to want to take more money from us in an act of bald profiteering, leads me to the inescapable conclusion that PlusNet is quite simply *amoral*.

Utterly disgusting service, never witnessed anything like it before. Very regretful at having signed-up but wanted cheaper deal. Not worth the hassle. Each telephone call takes at least half an hour to be answered plus another half hour when you are transferred to a different department. Staff all pleasant and sincere but nothing gets done. The most frustrating experience ever, save yourself the bother and stay away. Well away. I wanted to give Plusnet no, zero, stars but it doesn't allow that. One star is extremely complimentary.

Thankfully I only had a 12 month contract but I had to pay it despite not even being able to use for the past 2 months. Gone with another provider now and works fine so go figure why it didn't work with Plusnet. Shall never use again and will strongly advise others from using them.

I decided to move from Plusnet to a different provider however when it became evident they couldn't match the line speed their sales team said they could I went back to Plusnet. Since going back I've had nothing but trouble. I had to join as a new customer because apparently my old account had been terminated. However since then I have continued to be billed for my old and new accounts. Each time I ring them it's at least 30 minutes on the phone on hold ' don't believe what the automated message says about wait time. Its always longer' I've been told numerous times they've sorted and even have emails confirming cancellation but the bills still keep getting generated.

Originally had both my London and Brighton properties on PN for over 5 years. Unfortunately service in London got intermittent and slow, so we swapped. Early this month, same started in Brighton, contacted PN customer service, draconian, unhelpful, unable to email, long queue to talk on phone, live chat doesn't work, complaint, PN offered 2 months free service but still charged following month.
When we contacted PN, they couldn't find the credit on my account! Had to forward copy of my bank statement to show debit!
We've now left PN totally ...

Just been on the phone for an hour with some arrogant aggressive woman who didn't even comprehend the most simple of questions and just kept angrily reciting my own contract back to me. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS TRAP! They promise you 66 mbps and they only give you 20-30 while locking you in a contract for maximum cost. Learn from my mistake and stay far away.

The worst customer service ever!!!
I applied to join them online for broadband only and immediately they two initial fees from my credit card. The second day, I received email from Plusnet that my service will be delayed but they have quickly set up direct debit on my account. The development made me to check the offer given to me by the current provider and discovered that the offer was far better than Plusnet offer. I called customer service and need to be on queue for about an hour before my call was attended to. After security check, the lady who attended to me cut off the call after I told her that I wanted to cancel and needed the refund of the two fees taken from my card. I had to start all over again to be on phone queue to pass on my message.

Nearly a month that money was taken from my account, I am still waiting for the refund. They are just in it to quickly take money, get interest on the money and not give service.

Moved from Sky in August 2018, mainly due to price and a cashback deal. What a mistake. The billing system is a complete nightmare. Billed twice for 1 year's line rental, went overdrawn. Then received 8 emails and numerous text messages stating I would be disconnected and fined for a bill that I hadn't received and wasn't due for another 3 weeks. The only saving grace is that their customer service people try their best to fix things even though their systems are absolutely awful. Can't wait for the contract to end and move to another provider. Avoid!!

AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!! We bought their broadband but after reading their T&C's, which said it can take up to 10 days for the broadband to be set up and their cooling off period was 14 days we cancelled the next day. This was the 9th September and we still haven't been refunded for the initial payment. Each time I've called I have been lied to. Clearly thieves with no care for their customers.

Unbelievably useless. After screwing up closing my account and continuing to charge me for months, I spent an hour in total (no joke) on hold. Eventually I manage to talk to someone who can do something about it, they promise it will be refunded.
The refund comes through a week or more later, and they screwed that up too. Sent me less than half my money back.

So here I am again 'we're sorry for making you wait blah blah blah' another morning wasted thanks to Plusnet.

The worst part is I was a 4 year customer until we got FTTP and used to recommend them to everyone (worked as IT sysadmin) so now I have to go back to these people and tell them I screwed up and recommend moving over to Zen ASAP.

Absolutely astonished by how bad the customer service is. They took payment twice, argued about it, helped themselves to another £200 with no prior notice, and tried to charge £50 to cancel the contract despite being only 2 days in. Now, 6 weeks later, still waiting for a refund of the initial payment because a 'note was not put on the account' that a refund should be actioned. Now, after a total of 3 hrs on the phone, I am to await a cheque (!?!?!) which should be here within 3 weeks! Amazing.

Changed to another provider but they continued to bill me regardless. I cancelled the direct debit to stop them overcharging me and found that there was no way to contact them. Access to my account was frozen becauSe I hadn't paid what they had billed. I tried emailing, raising a query online, replying to their email and phoning. Phone wait was 30 mins minimum, but they supplied a number to text them. Thought I'd try that but when I pressed send, my mobile told me that there would be a supplementary charge - and of course it was a lengthy email. Back to phoning and in a queue. Writing this whilst waiting - and right now, the music stopped, a phone was ringing.... AND THEN I WAS CUT OFF!!! Of course, if I don't pay, my credit rating will be affected. Ombudsman, I think.

Brassington, Matlock Plusnet  
As with a number of other reviewers exactly the same shambolic customer service. Again as with a number of other reviewers, I placed an order for broadband and phone and they took payment straight away. An agreed date was set for the engineer to install the service. 2 weeks later i got a ‘courtesy call’ message and then low and behold later that day an email giving an engineer installation date a further 2 weeks from the first agreed date with no explanation. After a number of calls including multiple waits ranging from 35-40 mins to 15 mins to be passed from one ‘dept’ to another I eventually found out the infamous ‘automatic order system’ had cocked up and hadn’t assigned the engineer installation order even though I had a confirmed date. What a load of cobblers! They must have known and the mysterious ‘courtesy call’ yet nothing was mentioned about this, I think this was clearly a fishing exercise to see if I would accept the extra wait. I would call that a little suspicious. I insisted on keeping the original installation date but they wouldn’t have it. So I have cancelled the order on principle even though I will have to wait for the alternative provider to install the service. I asked for my money back, to be then told the refund would take 20 days! Bloody disgraceful service from the start! Their adverts promote best service, no hassle, does what it says on the tin blah blah blah... rubbish and a con. Avoid this lot at all costs

Ok actual internet speed but shocking customer service due to a recent change in there billing that does not account for the rewards amount. You cannot print an accurate VAT receipt and they don't even care or return your calls.
I cannot believe they didn't fully test there new billing system before rolling it out.

How Plusnet advertise itself as being awarded "best customer service" is a joke. The company has obviously grown too quickly and are unable to manage- avoid at all costs- shambolic with an average wait time of 20 minutes. Suggest they start employing more people and remove the dishonest and inaccurate 'best customer service'strap line.

For a few weeks now broadband speed has been reduced 0.1 and 0.4 on average. 20,30,45 mins on phone and no answer, unable to contact by e mail. decided a week ago to leave, what happens, broadband speed comes back to normal. Spoke to a girl in Sheffield? this morning and she blamed students ordering broadband at universities. I'm still leaving then.

Really didn't want to give any stars. I've had plus net for astound 4 years with no prob. They've changed me to fibre about 4 weeks ago and it's been a nightmare since. Would never recommend this company. They continue to blame it onto the BT connection.

Customer Service is a joke, you have to wait over 30minutes every time you call and they simply run through the same sc ript time and time again. Had to chat to them two days running because they cannot even pass between agents for then to get back to you. Had nothing but problems every time we have issues in getting it sorted quickly. Go somewhere else and save yourself the hassle later!!!!

Good dishonest broadband from Yorkshire, and the worst customer service I have ever come across. Overcharged from the word go , line rental increase within a couple of months and now hidden cessation charge added . Good riddance to the crooks.

Do not use, shocking customer service and dreadful broadband. Extremely difficult to contact, only option is to be on hold for 30 minutes plus each time as online chat is never available. Broadband speed is appalling, and no help to improve issue. Finally managed to get out of the contract and they've continued to take payment despite being informed we were leaving. Back to waiting 30 minutes on hold to get reimbursed! Worst provider EVER.

Carlisle Plusnet  
I won’t recommend it at all for the following:
1-from the first day, I was told the speed will be 35 MB, however it was ranging between 10-20MB, when I complained, the answer was the 35MB is theoretical and it rarely or never reaches 35. So they Didn’t tell the truth.

2- I started to have regular momentarily disconnections which invalidated my BB service. Despite this serious problem, the technical support confirmed the remote line test is normal. Absolutely useless.

3- their online chat service is always unavailable, they don’t have e mail and if you call them, the waiting time is 20min. More than once after 20 mins, you get someone suddenly ending the call.

My opinion and judgment came after a long year with useless service..

Avoid at all costs, the worst company I have had the misfortune of dealing with. I placed an order for broadband and phone and they took £31.99 payment straight away. 2 weeks later I got an email saying that they due to a system problem the order had not gone through. I decided at that time to ask for my money back. I spent 3 calls on hold for over 40 minutes I was told the refund would take 20 days it has been that and I am still waiting. The staff are unhelpful don't care and the customer service is non existent

APPALLING SERVICE! I’ve been waiting two months now for my WiFi service! The first time they took my payment to sign me up and then when I waited two weeks had no recollection of my account! (Quick to take my money though) the second time I’ve been waiting 4 weeks for my router arrive. Called three times and on the fourth time get told they have taken my address incorrectly! I’m so angry I wish I could cancel. I would have ordered from elsewhere if I’d known they would be so incompetent!

I know the service quality aspect is determined by the state of BTs network but the wireless router supplied by plusnet was awful. However what I found most repugnant about Plusnet is their out of contract billing policy. My reasonably priced service soon became a £52 monthly charge for.... nothing. So you need to watch your bills. Of course plusnet offered a better deal when I contacted them to leave but the damage was done. Trust lost, customer lost....and never coming back. In summary poor equipment and scandalous billing practises. Avoid.

I've been with Plusnet for many years now and was used for testing when FTTC first came out as I was local to the exchange that was doing the testing,
I accepted this offer and was advised I would still be paying the same rate I currently pay for the adsl but for FTTC, years past and I moved and was also allowed to move the FTTC deal with me! great!! but the contract renewal came around again and the paperwork/documentation at Plusnet had me down as adsl and not FTTC (this wasn't a problem in past renewals) so when I renewed the contract they dropped me down from FTTC to adsl so no internet!! they said get an adsl router and it will work -nope it didn't -cut a long story short the fibre clips on my line stopped the FTTC from working!! for 15 days and I work from home - my mobile 4G got hammered!! I wanted to stay on FTTC so they put the subscription up for me! the amount of calls in to Plusnet to try and resolve this was unacceptable!! so I said let me cancel the contract and I will moved (I saw a better deal being offered by takltalk at the time and wanted to take it....Plusnet said that they would price match the deal so I stayed but they didn't match the deal and was taking the full amount from my account, I raised this with them after seeing the full amount come out of my account and they couldn't find the price match offer I was offered or the call recordings of the calls and now they will not let me leave without paying an exit fee - currently £146.77....I cannot wait to leave Plusnet and will have to see out the remainder of my contract cos I feel giving them the exit fee is a slap in the face for me!! I will move when my contract is up and will not use Plusnet again or recommend them to anyone, what I have learnt from this is always take a full name of the person you are speaking to and write down the date & times of the conversation :(

Plusnet - We'll do you proud! what a load of b*llocks

Sheffield, UK Plusnet  
Over many years, I had been with most of the big BB providers and hated them all - then I tried Plusnet; what a breath of fresh air...! not the fastest but fast enough. Not the cheapest but cheap enough. Never try to take payment before it is due then cut you off, like others do. Have to wait a bit when phoning them but no longer than any of the others. Reliability of service was best I have ever experienced. They even give reductions to your monthly payment when you introduce new customers. I was with them until moving in with friends for a while and now, having a new place of my own, I will definitely go back with Plusnet - wouldn't even consider any of the others. I recommend Plusnet above all the others I've tried (Virgin, BT, Sky, TalkTalk, etc., etc., etc.)- hands down...!

It now takes an average of up to one hour to get through to customer service. I was out of contract with plus net so decided to pay line rental up front and negotiate another contract. Fine , no problem except they are still invoicing me at £45.00 per month. No e mails,just a load of hot air from customer service people promising me a refund. And this is adding another half hour to the phone call. I wish I had never signed up with them again, as I can I’ll afford to keep paying this large amount each month. worse than talk talk service and that is saying something.... I will not be renewing after my year that’s for sure....

I don't even know where to begin. I call and try to organise wifi for myself and I'm told it will be live in 10 working days. Fine. 10 days comes and goes? I don't have an e-mai, modem or anything never mind my internet. I call. 40 minutes waiting time!! I'm told they can't find the line???? They had to call another company to ask them. Don't know whether to laugh or cry at that. Then they said they'd e-mail with an update. NO update but I have suddenly been 'opted in' for several marketing channels?!!! I then have to call and chase them (another 30 mins) and I'm told they found the line (talk talk told them) BUT FORGOT TO PUT IN AN ORDER FOR THE MODEM!!!!!! So thats been ordered now and I've been told the 17th is when I go live........ I'm a 4th year uni student who's falling behind for lack of internet. And no mention of any kind of compensation. DISGUSTING. Only thing they haven't forgot to do is bill me.
Plusnet  
Farcical company. I've had no phone since moving to them. They don't seem to care. I've had two engineers out who have both blamed Plusnet but Plusnet keep blaming OpenReach. They contradict themselves on the phone, close tickets that are still open and have terrible call wait times.

Avoid at all costs. They won't even let me out my contract despite them failing to deliver. That's them just put my ticket on pause for 2 DAYS. I've already had no phone for a week and a half.

Avoid this disgusting company. I have just stared a business and was due to go live yesterday with plusnet broadband. I am on day 2 with zero internet and it’s a business line, I have lost thousands of pounds in revenue as most of my bookings are on line, I also take deposits which I can’t do as I can’t use my pdq machine. I got to work at 8am this morning as an engineer was supposed to come between 8-1, but didn’t turn up. When you try to speak with a person In the business department expect to be on hold for at least an hour. I must have wasted 6 hours between yesterday and today just to speak to a person and get absolutely nowhere.
It’s stressful enough starting a business without all this, I have never before experienced such poor customer service and lack of care. This has bee an absolute disaster to my business ns they offer no compensation whatsoever.
Now I have to look at another provider delaying my internet even more. I’m so upset and stressed about something that is so avoidable the worst company I have ever dealt with.

After 2 years with Plusnet on Superfast Broadband I came to renew my contract. When I put my postcode into a third party website the cheapest price for a similar speed was 30% cheaper. Plusnet were also on the list offering a price 25% cheaper on the two comparison sites I looked at. I thought 25% less this was good enough so I would stick with Plusnet but when I phoned them up the person on the phone stated that that price wasn't available to me as I was in an expensive area. I told him that I had put my postcode in so the area was known so this was fraud. He said that I should take it up with the comparison web sites. When I asked to speak to the supervisor I was simply put on hold without him saying he was going to connect me to anyone leaving me no alternative but to hang up. As far as I am concerned this is appalling service and yet just another example of existing customers being treated badly.

Is this attempted theft?
Having paid £225.83 up front for a year's worth of line rental with Plusnet, after thought (and some truly terrible customer service), I decided to cancel the contract two days later. I was assured cancellation was complete along with a full refund. 28 days later, not one penny has been returned!
Worst of all is, if I had not checked my credit card statement, I would not have seen that the money had not been returned, in which case, would I have ever have seen my money again?
Have Plusnet contacted me - even once- about this issue? No, of course not.
Take what you will from my experience, but I'm not going anywhere near this company again.

To start with at the beginning of setting account and agreed monthly price they kept increasing the amount so ended up paying double. Cannot get through by phone as I had to as wifi was down for 2 weeks when I finally got through the agent did not care offered no help and no offer of refund for the time out of service. So I cancelled and again they put extra charges on.

After moving house I wasn't able to stay with my old provider so decided to go with plusnet as I heard they were good, big mistake. The router is dreadful and I can not get a signal from it upstairs or in the kitchen, had to buy boosters to get a connect, only a 2 bed room house so not asking the router to send over a large distance. Speed constantly drops. Whenever you try to call support they are always busy amd wait times are 30 + minutes. If you're cinsidering plusnet my advice would be to keep looking

Oh dear, Whatever has happened! They have had a new billing system and everything has totally gone south. The actual service technically has always been good to me. But, I recently ordered an upgrade from Fibre to Fire Extra. The change date came and went, no upgrade. I got billed for another month on the old rate (which was more) and sent a shiny new 18 month contract (I was previously out of contract). So no upgraded service, no reduction in monthly billing, but a new 18 month contract. Various attempts to contact plus Net via phone and chat. On the chat they couldn't access my details and told me to call them another day! When I eventually managed to speak to someone (it took several days as I kept running out of time - they're call waiting times are 30 - 40 minutes) Went through it with one agent to discover he couldn't help or see my billing tab. Eventually got transferred to the customer options team (on the phone now for 41 minutes) They could see no change order. So now I'm moving to another provider. I will steer very clear of Plus-net for the time being until they get their billing system sorted out. I got a cheaper deal elsewhere anyway.

Plus net is by far the worlds *****est broadband service. Their employees are completely inept to do ANYTHING you ask them. They left me without WiFi for a month, continuingly pushing the start date back. If you want to waste your time and money, plusnet is the broadband for you. A 6 year old could do a better job and sorting out my WiFi than plusnet employees. Absolutely ridiculous and the whole company needs to be shut down.

I have never received customer service like this before. Ordered broadband for 12 months at discounted rate by paying in one lump. Continuous string of delays and fob offs that the broadband can't be set up. Phone line was set up quickly however, and Plusnet wanted to charge for the phone line over the six weeks without internet. A very obnoxious customer service agent shouted at me on the phone to tell me that I have to pay for it, whether I wanted it or not. Even though I only needed line rental for the broadband, and their welcome email stated that they would be set-up at the same time. When I cancelled the order and went to Sky (who were very good and set me up with good service in less than two weeks with a price match), they didn't pay my refund. Everytime I contact them, I receive the same string of excuses as to why they haven't been able to pay. They have been sitting on my £200 for 4 months now, and I still don't have it back. They are very difficult to get hold of - you have to sit on hold for a long time, and when you get through, the person answering the phone doesn't have the information needed to answer you and simply opens an online 'question', which repeatedly gets put on hold for a week at a time. I have had to go through my credit card provider to claim the money back from them, as I have had no success myself, and feel like I am banging my head against a brick wall. My advice - do not touch this company with a barge pole! Go to Sky instead - they know how to speak to their customers politely as well.

Plusnet has become utterly unreliable - currently TRYING to report slow speeds each month. 'Trying' because they cannot be contacted. No email. No Chat. And currently (they say) 40 minutes phone wait time. (Which means it will be MUCH longer!) So, can't easily get online and can't ask for help. Stuck - and all to save a few quid and protect the senior managers' bonuses, no doubt. I'll leave as soon as I am able.

STAY AWAY...nothing plus about plusnet more like `MINUSNET`
4 weeks now with 95% downtime. When connected i can`t even browse the internet ( email,banking etc.) Over 3 hours,in total, lost on the phone waiting. It`s something else every time you phone them. They don`t know of your previous complaints. They`ve asked me not to turn the router of for ten days so that the network can stabilize itself!? Ten days? They treat you like a fool and delay solving your internet so they can charge you another month! They identified something wrong but they can`t tell me what it is over the phone so they booked an engineer. Engineer never turned up as scheduled. `No internet, we don`t care, will charge you good !`plusnet
I`m switching TODAY !
P.S> using my mobile network internet to write this review.

For a company that advertises their great customer service I have honestly never experienced worse. On average 40 minutes wait time to speak to someone in customer services, all just to change an address. Horrific service

People normally feel the need to comment on these review sites only when things go wrong, which is understandable. People feel a need to vent their anger. That's why so many of the reveiws are negative. (Check other providers reviews, they are all the same).
Just thought I would add my thoughts about Plusnet.
I've been a Plusnet customer for 11 years, at two different addresses. In all this time I have had only two problems - both were underground cable faults and out of the control of Plusnet. I received instant account refunds for these problems.
The router I have now is two years old has been faultless, with excellent wifi coverage, no dropouts and easy to setup and modify. (I previously used my own routers).
I can download and stream HD/UHD films, music etc without problem, and the download speed has always been exactly as promised.
Like all providers, their customer helplines can be very busy, but there is the ability to check online just how busy they are, how many customers are waiting and the average waiting time. So you can see the best time to call. (Google 'plusnet call wait times').
So overall I can recommend Plusnet.

What can I say about Plusnet !! Expensive ,Broadband speed rubbish and intermittent, equipment old looking out of date , customer service , shoddy and useless , rude staff, judging by the amount of time they have you on hold and pass you from pillar to post if you have a problem they must employ about two people . We have gone to BT before the contract ends , rather pay the penalty and have much better equipment and service , Plusnet will do you proud ..LOL !! Avoid .

Was promised the earth, got a handfull of dirt. Bad service, told lies and had to wait for my service, which did not give speed as advertised. Can only say BT / Plusnet are a bunch of cowboys. For goodness sake plusnet is part of BT but one agent I was trying to deal with was denying it, how stupid can they be. PLUSNET IS A BT COMPANY, Yet they regularly blame BT Openreach for problems, their problems, inhouse problems, but deny the responsibility. Unless Plusnet step up to the plate, they will die through BT arrogant lack of service. As I said Plusnet IS BT.

Brighton Plusnet  
Having signed up with plusnet based on positive reviews, I fail to see where these positive experiences have come from.
I recently moved into a new flat and when calling plusnet, was told that there was no active line in the property. I knew that the previous tenants had not cancelled the line so thought this was surprising.
I specifically asked whether this would be the case with all providers and was told no matter who I went with, I would need an engineer to come out to re-activate the line. This meant an additional £49,99 as plusnet would not wave the charge.
After deliberating on this, I called back the next day and was again told that no matter which provider, the line was cut and an engineer had to come out. I made a point of repeatedly asking and they kept saying that yes, other providers were the same.
Believing them at their word, I agreed to paying for the engineer, (even though Sky would have been cheaper) because I was willing to pay a little extra to have excellent customer service.
Imagine my surprise to find that there was an active line!! The engineer was equally surprised, said it would be working with another provider and wasn’t quite sure why/how this has happened.
When calling plusnet to report this, I was told that this was not their fault but that maybe sky had incorrectly registered the line as inactive. I explained that in this case, their sales agents should not speak on behalf of other providers. I was told that they felt that they were being honest and upfront. I explained that they should not speak on behalf of other providers as this is not correct. Either blame Sky OR align with them and take responsibility. You can’t have it both ways. After a 45 min conversation, Kyle (customer service agent) asked to remain on the line. A while later he came back and said “ I have spoken to several people but because you are already signed up to a special offer, there is nothing we can do except to say sorry”. In disbelief, I asked “so if customers have signed up to a special offer, they have to just accept poor customer service?”
I was told “your complaint is valid, we will take your feedback into account and feedback your concerns but we feel we have done nothing wrong and will not offer you anything but an apology”.
What a joke!

AVOID WOULD GIVE NO STARS IF POSSIBLE! Disgusted with service I can't wait until my contract with these thieves is over! I called 100s times over the course of a year but was on hold so long that I've only ever been answered for three of thous calls. When we moved in and had the broadband it never reached above 2mb even though our contract is for 17+mb we had to only use one devise on the wifi at a time due to it being so slow. I was told to just reset the box or that there was no fault (BEWARE they WILL charge £64 every time they "don't" find one) I was never offered an engineer call out even though my landline and broadband didn't work. Eventually someone with some sense helped and sent one who discovered the issue was with the wiring on the phone poll to our house so it has been there since moving in. I then disputed that fact so as to get compensation for at least 8 months but was told as a "good will gesture" I was only able to receive £60 which barely covers the cost of calling them on my mobile since my landline didn't work let alone the charge I was given by Plussnet themselves for the apparent no fault in the first place. Trading standards states that the company must provide at least 50% constantly of what it contracted I received less then 12%! To top it all off the manager was very condescending and I hope I never have an issue again so that I don't have to speak to them!

PlusNet is poor. The fibre speed was slower than regular Sky and the service was unreliable. i have had 5-6 BB providers in last 10 years and PlusNet are the worst. As a final humiliation, I left and they continued to bill me. I cancelled my DD and they started sending threatening letters and 'cut me off'. When they agreed the refund, they asked me to reinstate the DD and they simply took more money. They now owe me a substantive sum that I can't get back and have spent hours on the phone (usual 'we are experiencing a high volume of calls' rubbish). Award winning customer service, not!

Lichfield Staffordshire Plusnet  
AVOID. Their service doesn't even deserve the one star I was forced to award to complete this review. Plusnet failed to cancel the service provided to he previous tenants. They then proceeded to charge us as incoming tenants despite having no intention of providing a service. When we rang to confirm delivery of the router we were told this had not been processed but the operator could not tell us why. After calling back on a different day we were informed that our order had been cancelled (although the direct debit had not been)! After some digging with a different provider we found out that as Plusnet had failed to cancel the previous tenants service (despite their request for Plusnet to do so) and so we could not obtain line rental until the previous tenants, who we were not in contact with, had confirmed the cancellation AGAIN to Plusnet. Despite this being entirely Plusnet's error we have had nothing by way of even an apology let alone compensation for the delay in receiving an internet to our new flat. Their service is disappointing and has caused us a lot of stress. Particularly it is quite concerning that despite cancelling our order they continued the direct debit and didn't offer a refund of the set up fees until we queried this.

Very disappointed in PlusNet. Got it when we moved to a new place and was extremely slow and unstable. They are not easy to reach. Chat is never working, email just leads to a repeat of things you have already tried. So you need to call them for which you will have to wait at least twenty minutes every time. They tried some things to repair. Didn't really help. Got an engineer in, which made it work better but still slow and not reliable. They claim it works fine and we are stuck for another year with rubbish internet. Can't wait until it is over.

This company has some nerve charging over a fiver for their service. We switched from ee a few months ago and I've had to upgrade my mobile data package it's that bad. I have been taking frequent speed tests on ookla and IF it connects to the server I've only once in the few months I've tracked it seen it go over 5mbs on download. I pay for Netflix and Amazon prime and can't enjoy films on either because of the buffering, and if it's not buffering it's unavailable because the internet has dropped for the 3rd time in 30 minutes. I've tested speeds in prime time and low times and it's always the same. I see the little ! Next to my Wi-Fi signal more often than not.

I would call them dial up quality. But that would be an insult to dial up.

I made a big mistake by signing up with Plusnet last week.

After I signed up, a relative told me I had made a big mistake. They said they used to be a Plusnet customer, but left after being told constant lies.. He told me to read the reviews on Trustpilot, and to cancel straight.away.

I cancelled over the phone within 12 hours of signing up, and I was promised that a refund of £38 was issued and I would have it it in 3 to 5 days.

8 days later and after not receiving the refund, I phoned up Plusnet..I was on the phone for over 2 hours. I spoke to 4 different people and put on hold 3 times for half an hour.

The first 2 people I spoke to, told me a blatant lie in that the refund was issued,and the 3rd person hadn't got a clue and passed me onto the 4th person.

The 4th person confirmed that the first 2 people I had spoken to had lied to me, by telling me that the refund had NOT been issued, and used the excuse of technical difficulties and said they would send a cheque instead in 10 days time!!

I refused a cheque, but he told me that I had no option.

I then received an email saying a cheque would be sent within 21 days! What a complete joke!

I have been in touch with Ofcom and my card issuer, and both have told me to get back in touch when the cheque doesn't arrive after 10 days, and they will both take matters further. Ofcom also told me they have received thousands of complaints about Plusnet and my own problem is extremely common. They also told me I will not see a cheque during this millennium.

Connecting to the internet has been a nightmare, having to keep switching on and off to get any, the speed is snail pace and to top it all I had an email saying I had to top up my calls for my landline as I was up to my limit!!! What limit, I was not informed of this added expense and now find that I am paying £20 more per bill than I was previously, SAVING Oh YEAH!!! all the hype and adverts is a load of rubbish and I have been truly caught out. If I didn't 'top up' I would be charged more on top!! Hooked into a 12 month contract that I can't get out of without further expense. I am thoroughly disgusted with this company and how they operate and will be telling family and friends to avoid like the plague! BEWARE landline and broadband so called deals - RUBBISH.

This is a weird company. I understand they are owned by BT so I blame BT for their incompetence. Service response is appalling. You wait on the line for ages then you get cut off when transferred. I have just called them and the message said there was a 30 minute wait. They answered within 2 minutes!!! Were they just trying to get me off the line? I wanted a VAT invoice but they said I would have to move to a business line which would cost me £36 a month instead of the £21 I am paying for a residential line. The service is exactly the same! I just hope that by posting these terrible reviews this company will cease to trade. BT should be ashamed of itself.

Been with plusnet for nearly a year with broadband and mobile phones. Broadband amazingly slow even though we have fibre. Mobile phones suspended claiming they have been unable to collect payment even though the payment has left the bank on the correct day and a £10 late fee applied to add insult to injury. All you get from customer services is a sorry and that they will waver the late fee as a gesture of good will!!! Good will??? Really cheesed off with this company now and will be dealing with them through the ombudsmen from now on.
My advice? Do not contemplate even entertaining this company. There moto of "plusnet does you proud" is a Christmas cracker joke in itself.

Being a customer for 7 months, internet has been moderate for the rural area.
I planned to move address and not take okusnet with me so booked cancellation day of the 30/9/18.
They closed my account in the 7/918 and have left me without broadband or phone for 3 weeks. Not helpful when you work from hone often. Asked to be switched back on and the reply was yes you can have the phone line back on Monday but the B.B. will be a week. Sorry for ya being complete idiots and closing you down early have a nice day!!!

Do not entertain Plusnet as a phone and broadband supplier, long wait time on customer service, direct debits cancelled and have to be reinstated through the term due to their incompetence and they choose when to close your account after you’ve given them a date.

In my personal opinion, I think that this horrible network provider is the worst I have ever seen in my life because of the sheer lack of network reliability and the atrocious speeds that are given and the fact that my price per month increased at such a rapid rate I went from 20 pounds a month to like 40 a month its absolutely disgraceful and downright shocking I really expected more from a provider that guaranteed me a stable internet connection and a fixed price

Plusnet keeps you on hold for an average waiting time of 30 minutes and when you finally get through you sometimes get cut off/disconnected so you're expected to phone them back and wait for another life time before getting through again.
Why can't they have the decency to phone you back so they can at least try and rectify your problem instead of ignoring it. I joined Plusnet for their Customer Service but what a load of rubbish they are.

Switched to save a few quid a month on broadband costs£23.99p instead of £31.50p for John Lewis. Ended up with bills for £94.93p for the first month because no one would cancel the JL despite me phoning and doing so four times in six days. Still don't know how they figured I owed that amount. Plus Net helped themselves to two random amounts via direct debit,in the space of a week from my bank account for services I was not getting. Spent hours and hours on the phone to both parties trying to get some sense out of them to no avail. Longest wait to speak to some one? 46 minutes!!!! Made 12 phone calls before finally cancelling after the router stopped working. The final straw that broke this camels back. Still waiting for refunds from Plusnet and JL,not holding my breath. An absolute shambles. Do all the "customer services" people at these companies(same people for both) have degrees in incompetence from the university of Couldn't Care Less?

Such a bad start I cancelled before I gold even get my router from Plusnet. I paid upfront for the yearly coat, almost £200 and I received absolutely nothing for about 6 weeks. When I tried to contact them their customer service was poor. Very long waits on the phone, mostly incompetent staff when I eventually got answered, and online chat help no help either. When I finally asked to cancel and have a a full refund they messed that up too by giving me a mixture of multiple notifications that I'd cancelled one day and still giving me others about my order and account the next. Then they STILL sent me a router out. Clearly they don't have a communications system that is organised. Don't waste your time. It cost me wasted time, energy and money.

BEDWORTH Plusnet  
We used Plusnet in our student house for two years. Be wary, we got a good deal to start but after 18 months the price rocketed. The speed was generally okay but unreliable and often dropped out several times a day.
The worst aspect was the service at cancellation. I was the account holder so the £34.98 total was taken from me every month. I called and cancelled the contract in June, paying the extortionate £30 cancellation fee on top of our final bill. The account was supposedly closed, but come July the monthly bill was taken from my account again. I called several times over the space of two weeks to rectify the issue and it took almost the entire month for the company to refund me.
Come August, the did it again. Once again I had to call and call, and finally sort a refund. That took 10 working days to get to me.
I was and still am shocked and appalled that the company billed me not once but twice after I had cancelled. Incredibly frustrating and the service from the team dealing with my issue was basically dreadful.
I would avoid plusnet, it turned out to be one big con.

I took out a 12 month contract , for the first month the broadband didn’t work at all - they only refunded £2.50. The customer service is shockingly bad , I’m still having problems with it cutting out now but have given up the long queues trying to talk to someone ... just counting the weeks now until I can swap - NEVER AGAIN!

Contrary to most reviews I can only speak highly of Plusnet. They recently provided us with landline and broadband. Their communication was excellent via text and they honored both target dates for connection.

So far our broadband speed has been excrllent. To date Very happy with Plusnet.

Stay away from Plusnet! When setting up the contract, great, then your on your own, no email address, web chat when somebody is there which is rare, just passes you around , as for ringing them, don't bother, 20 mins plus waiting, then passed over, and over, min call time 35mins only to be spoke to like an idiot. I tried to cancel as the increased my monthly charge without any notice, the smug guy on end of phone said, we sent you an email, you didn't respond, you've got a charge, £72.90!!! They are liars, checked my mail box, nothing at all, told them to resend the email with date on as proof, surprize, they say they can't do that, told them the broadband is slow, useless, phone line been dead 3 weeks, sent me a ticket, said wel fix it, after fixing said a charge £65.00! Unbelievable, how about advising first there MAY be a charge at which point I would have said don't bother, I'm cancelling, customer service awful, broadband awful, they do NOT, do you proud!

Leeds Plusnet  
BEWARE: Appalling service in every respect. About to change provider because Plusnet failed to make their service actually work in our house. After the broadband starting off more or less ok, though with a far weaker signal than our previous provider, the wifi then ceased to work properly, dropping out constantly and sometimes being totally unable to connect. It appeared to be because of an older plusnet router so we replaced it with the newer one the company sent. Yet it never worked with the wifi, the connection dropping constantly and often failing to connect. We were then told by technical support that often the automatic settings on Plusnet routers do not work well with Mac computers, and to change the channel to 1,6 or 11. None of these solutions made any difference. I called Plusnet again, who rather than trying to think of other solutions told me quite rudely they could not guarantee any kind of wifi service. Since my computers and phone do not have ethernet ports, this means the Plusnet service cannot work. I have never encountered this problem with any other provider in any other country; the wifi works perfectly well on my Mac and iPhone. Why Plusnet find it so impossible to deliver this service is beyond me. Their customer service and technical support is ineffective at best and extremely rude and arrogant and worst; the service has a serious flaw in that it is not well adapted for use with Macs (which a huge number of people own, so it seems extraordinary) and overall a waste of time. in particular the last person I spoke to at technical support spent the entire time arguing and making excuses like 'well we don't guarantee wifi' and 'connections drop a lot in London' (constantly to the point where the service is unusable?Never encountered this before-plus irrelevant to mention, I'm hardly going to turn around and say oh that's ok then, I'll just keep paying for a service that doesn't work) and not once saying 'ok let's see what we can do' and all in an extremely rude and unhelpful tone so I gave up, ended the call and cancelled the contract. Don't bother, unless you only use a PC connected to ethernet and don't mind being told when you call for assistance that it isn't their job to make your service work. Third-rate company with no respect for its customers, incapable of providing the service you pay for.

When switching over from John Lewis, we were told and even sent a letter that we would be able to keep our @waitrose.com email address. The customer support person did not tick the box to keep email address and therefore, even though we were sent a letter which stated that we would be able to keep our email. As well as this, we have had to contact the support countless times because they failed to change the email on the account from the one which is @waitrose.com after 2 calls. The troubles did not end there as we were overcharged on our first month and it took another 30 minutes on the support line for the issue to be solved.

Dartford, Kent Plusnet  
I have been with Plusnet a few years nearly seven and one thing I like about Plusnet is the one of cost for a static IP ideal for our CCTV system to keep connected when not at home broadband is fast enough for me with a. Few devices mainly wired to use the internet there has been problems with the underground wiring and rodents chewing but once reported and the line checked for a few weeks on test openreach fixed it the same day and the open reach chap was great I would say the call times can be very long unlike before when I first joined call times were five minutes but now can reach 30 minutes but on the whole I'm pleased with Plusnet even though they are not a perfect provider they are by far one of the better ones as the internet is usually stable and works well that is Plusnet

Ongoing broadband speed issue, PN customer service finally replied, accept our previous complain and offered two months free services. Due to this offer, we contemplated remaining with PN.
However later we realised PN only gave us line rental free, but still charged us for broadband, the higher portion of our monthly bill!
Again when we tried to contact customer service today, their support response via ticket form had crashed, left on queue with their online chat and was also left waiting on phone for 18 minutes before being answered.
Due to this latest fiasco, we've finally decided to leave PN as we cannot see PN surviving in the increasing competitive ISP business environment if this is how they treat their customers.

I moved to plusnet because of the mantra about customer service and quality etc... all I can say is, what a load of pants. I have found them to be incompetent and ineffective, and incredibly difficult to get ahold of. ide rather they didn't make such a big deal about there "UK" based call centres and just enough staff to actually answer the phone (or webchat!)
I have had multiple problems with my connection which has meant that my connection speed has been a 1/4er of what it should have ben for nearly 6 months whilst they attempted to fix it. when I asked for compensation for my time and hassle in discussing with them I got told "they don't do compensation". when I asked to speak to a complaints team they said they didn't have one!
I would 100% not recommend plusnet to anyone. really poor experience all round.

Their customer team are polite & responsive but other than that the experience has been pretty poor.

I signed up on the promise of a £75 cashback. I've had to chase this twice now and still haven't received it.

The service promised a minimum speed, which since we have had it has already dropped below to 4.1 (which is almost unusable).We are in central London so not really any excuse either.

And the chat service if you are an existing account - not a new customer - almost never works.

Not impressed.

**Avoid PLUSNET**

Terrible experience with Plusnet from start to finish. When I first signed up I was without internet for 6 weeks because they could not get it sorted.
Then when they did get me a connection, it didnt even work. Spent hours on the phone and chat to customer service to be told something different each time. 2 engineers had to be sent out at separate times and told me there was no issue with my line and it was PLUSNET that were the problem. The engineers recommended a different provider due to their bad reputation. No apologies or money off for the inconvenience.

They even had the cheek to charge me for the period when I was not provided with any service. Spent weeks trying to get it sorted and get refunded.

The whole time with plusnet my internet has dropped out and I do not get anywhere near the speed I pay for, despite paying even more for unlimited fibre. Total crooks!


Service is terrible yet they increase their prices each year! £35 for internet! Yet other providers include TV, mobile and internet for less! Switching to a provider for £11 less a month for the same internet package.

I am now leaving them due to their appalling service, which is slow and unreliable and their customer service is shocking.

Very dissapointed with Plusnet. Keep your distance and save yourself the hassle.

This was supposed to be the most seamless of a house move transfer. Same exchange (feniscowles), same telephone number - what on earth could go wrong ?!?!? Placed the order on 22 July 2018 and still waiting to be connected (16 August 2018). Missed deadlines, loads of apologies and yes, they do seem to be trained in how to say sorry in a few different ways. What a fool I was to stay with them. Should've read the reviews. Avoid at all costs. Plusnet seem to be at the lowest rung in the openreach ladder. Will call them AGAIN on Saturday (18 August 2018) to check the progress on my order but will attempt to leave this silly and v unprofessional outfit. On a par with talk talk. In fact, sounds like both companies swap staff on a weekly basis

Plusnet's broadband service is absolutely horrible. Online gaming is impossible unless you have no other internet-using devices online. Ping is so unstable, ranging from 9mbps to thousands. Download speed also fluctuates constantly, usually at around 16mbps. Upload speed rarely surpasses 1mbps. Overall, I would not recommend this provider if you have more than one person using the internet at once.

Signed up with Plusnet 3 weeks ago. Still without internet as they haven't even placed the order yet!!

It took them 2 weeks to activate a phone line that was already active with a working number.

Every time you contact customer support they palm you off and transfer you to a different department.

Currently have no idea if/when i'll be getting internet and this is badly affecting my work.

They were quick enough to take my money but haven't delivered on any promises so far.

Avoid at all costs, Pay a little more and go with a more reputable company.

I signed up to Plusnet but really wish I had read reviews first! I regret signing!

Internet speet 2 meters from the router drops to less than half a mbs download. I had to buy an extender to be able to use the internet at all. Internet is still extremely bad and not usable at all during peek times (8.30pm - 11.00pm, 9-10.00pm around the worst). During peek times I cannont watch TV or use use a computer!

I tried to get this resolved, but was advised to purchase a better router (they supplied the router in the first place!). Paying more money to have basic working internet defeats the whole reason I singed up as the cost would have been higher than my previous provider I had just left. I did decide to buy a £15 extender from Amazon - this has helped but not resolved the peek time drop.

I tried to cancel within 14 days of the service going live only to be told I couldn't as the 14 day cancelation period starts the day of signing to them, which very conveniently ends when the service goes live!

Almost daily I was uploading screed shots (had to use my phone's mobile data to upload them which was crazy when I should have had internet!). About a week into uploading evidence of extreme internet drop outs at peek times I received a message to say they had closed the case as they felt it was resolved - NO IT MOST CERTAINLY WASN'T).

I have found an internet channel that is slightly better for peek times but the internet is still poor during peek periods and I'm stuck with it.

All in all I regret ever signing and wish I'd stayed with sky. Who knew interenet could be so varied between providers?!

Been with PN for a few years, recently noticed slow BBand speed, supposed to be 55 - 80 mbps and rise in monthly payment for BB and phone line, so called to query, confirmed by customer service and options team who both did speed tests, confirmed low speed at 5 mbps and offered new contract at higher rates than advertised on website. Then Tech team claimed their test returned 65 mbps, refuse to accept other tests as if implying we're all lying!
When we started to complain, PN's customer NO service overall demeanor changed to the typical no supervisor available, Manager will call back tomorrow etc block came up.
We were happy with PN initially but not now as they seem to be resting on their laurels not realising there are other competitors out there with better options and customer service now ..
Needless to say, we're now hunting to change our ISP asap.

Signed up to Plusnet after stressful house move, story goes like this... PN - installation will take two weeks
Me - OK fine I'll do without phone broadband until then.
Installation date comes around and take day of work and wait at home all day. No response, I call them.
PN - No sorry your appointment is tomorrow.
Me - Not good enough, why didn't you let me know.
PN - We emailed you
Me - ah yes you took down my address incorrectly.
Me - Why didn't you call me - Oh yes you took down my mobile number incorrectly as well.
PN - We can install tomorrow
Me - OK i'll check with work. I get back to them.
PN - no sorry we can't do tomorrow, will have to be in 10 days time.
Me - No apologies, really poor customer serivce and they had the cheek to threaten me with a £70 fee if I missed the appointment.
Plusnet ... they'll probably NOT do you (or themselves) proud.
You can't even contact them by email, only on-line (will not connect as they are too busy) or phone them - expect a 20+ minute wait before getting passed around like an idiot for thinking they have great customer service.
In the end went with EE - no fuss, no problem just a bit more expensive.

Customer Service 0/10
Worst customer service don't bother trying to ring them as I don't think they actually have anyone answering the phones. 26 minutes today in the end gave up.
Broadband speed 0/10
Alleged guaranteed 3meg (can't have fibre) not once have they reached that & the Wi-Fi signal is non-existent. Sat in the same room as the router ran a speed test & got .32meg. My security system relies on Wi-Fi, my door bell as well, my heating system also relies on it so basically all of it is null & void & trying to get this company to help well basically I have now given up. Asked them to put me on the waiting list for fibre as per BT their response we can't do that. You have to request it, hold on BT say that my supplier has to request it & as their parent company is actually BT can you see where I'm going with this.
Broadband reliability 0/10
It's shocking. When I asked them

Would I recommend them HELL NO & their adverts on the TV obviously they've paid for all of their awards because from what I've experienced no way they've got awards for customer service, reliability or anything else for that matter.

DIABOLICAL

Just took £71 from my bank account months after they assured me that they wouldn't. Cut a long story short it was for an engineer call out to fix an issue that was beyond our control. In several conversations with agents and managers we were assured that we would not be charged as the fault was not of our doing. I'm absolutely livid. I'm out of the country so my wife has tried to deal with it but the agent just kept barraging her saying 'Were you aware of the charges?' to which she replied, 'We were told that we would not be charged otherwise we would not have accepted the appointment'. The guy then tried to call me wife back saying that he'd found the message which proved that we were told that we shouldn't be charged. Could he not have done that beforehand? Regardless, barraging somebody over the phone and essentially using bully tactics is not on. They are refunding us now but it's beside the point

BEWARE of joining Plusnet as they have a lot of hidden fees. Especially when you move houses yearly. I had a 12 month contract and came to the end of the contract. As soon as I let them know that I'm leaving, they said there was a 30 pound fee for removing the broadband from the line. I have used 3 other providers in all my years in the UK as a student, and I was NEVER asked to pay such a fine. Not to mention I have been having drops in internet connection during the whole year and all they did was send an engineer to fix it once. It was never fixed, and they said they couldn't do anything further to fix it. NEVER AGAIN.

LONDON Plusnet  
I was with plusnet for a year and received wonderful customer service and fast Wi-fi. I moved to another city in the UK and unfortunately there was a lot of complications surrounding getting plusnet set up at this location. Therefore I decided to switch provider. I was very concerned I would have to pay a leaving fee as I was still in contract to plusnet. However I spoke to a wonderful customer service advisor Chris Sanderson who was absolute excellent. The fee was cancelled as they appreciated they were unable to provide Wi-fi at the new location and as a sign of good will. Unbelievably happy with the service plusnet provided and would recommend them to anyone. If I move again to an area with plusnet I would certainly look to setting up a Wi-fi account with them again.

Nottingham Plusnet  
I have had nothing but trouble since transferring to Plusnet. I was given a date for connection and this was not met (over a 1 week delay and no contact to let me know). I was fobbed off for a week with various excuses, before threatening to leave and suddenly being told I was connected 20 minutes later. However, my troubles did not end here. My connection still wasn't up and running because they had entered the wrong details on my line, so it took another call lasting over an hour to get it finally connected. My unlimited broadband was actually slower by about 10MBS than my previous standard broadband and the upload speed isn't even worth speaking about, it's so slow. Having spoken to someone today, I have been told that I have been connected to standard broadband, rather than fibre as per my order. I also continue to be billed by my previous provider so Plusnet have not even completed the switch properly and I'm now paying two companies for a service I cannot use. Annoyingly, the other company is actually Plusnet trading under a different name (John Lewis) so I'm really paying Plusnet twice for a service that doesn't work. Each time I call Plusnet I'm in a call queue for at least 40 minutes only to be fobbed off, told to call back and speak to a different department, given wrong numbers etc. I'm so disappointed in the service I've received up to now. I have been told umpteen times that my issue has been rectified only to find out that it hasn't later. When I have asked to speak to a manager I'm told that someone will call back and no one ever does. When I have asked to leave I've been told that I will then be left with no phone or broadband, so another inconvenience - not customer service at all, just fine, we're washing our hands of you. Terrible. As soon as I can leave I will, and I won't be going back.

Sheffield Plusnet  
Having previously read about Plusnets supposed great service I signed up for an 18 month contract. I was disappointed throughout due to the broadband regularly dropping out, in every occasion I rang customer service I was met with at least a 15+ minute wait to be answered, even the so called live chat took 17 minutes to be answered on the time I chose to try that. I moved to Virgin media the other day, I had provided Plusnet with their required 14 says notice, they sent a letter to acknowledge. I cancelled the direct debit with my bank. To my horror Plusnet took a payment from my debit card without my consent or knowledge (previously paid for initial set up as required by them via debit card), this is a disgrace and surely unlawful given the fact it was cancelled, and what gives them the right to keep my debit card details once a direct debit had been set up and used for the remaining 18 months. In the process of getting my money back and bank cancelling them from taking future payment from debit card. I would not recommend Plusnet, and will never use them again.

There is a lot of complaints about plusnet but I want to lighten the load a little.
I am really happy with plusnets service and customer service.
I've had problems twice in 4 years of being with this provider and twice the problem was dealt with professionally with exceptional customer service...... Last problem took BT outreach (who too were excellent) to fit new wiring from my living room to front door then from my 3rd floor to ground then a new router sent from plusnet finally sorted the problem.
I pay for 80 meg and get anywhere between 45 and 75 which is ample for multi connected devices and I want to than plusnet for brilliant communication and their fantastic hands on approach supporting my while my Internet played up.
Nothing in this world is perfect and their staff do the best they can... Usually your helped better by your attitude too, why call ranting at someone who's sat on the phone all day absorbing everyone's stress... They are only human and need your understanding too.
Thankyou plusnet for awsome service, you've a customer for life here and believe me, I've had other providers in the past but plusnet I'd far more superior in its customer care.
I highly recommend plusnet

From a very happy customer

Mason.

I was a new customer to plusnet, but wish I wasn't! I placed an order for fibre broadband online on the 25th July. choosing for the installation to occur on the 6th August. After waiting for 5 hours I called Plusnet, who explained that my order hadn't been processed and I would need to wait for a further 24 hours before they could even confirm my account details and order. I am now having to wait nearly 1 month for broadband installation, and they can't do anything to help... I guess you get what you pay for.

I have been with Plusnet for years but am leaving now for EE. When it's running well it's fine but when you need to contact customer support everything changes. A few weeks ago my service went off and I waited 25 minutes to get through to customer support. This week I waited 25 minutes and still didn't get through. Phoned back and waited 40 minutes without getting through. Phoned customer support and waited 20 minutes without getting through. Signed up with EE for a much better deal !!

First connection, decided to delay connection by a week without telling me. "We're really sorry about that". Second connection, left me without internet for 2 weeks "because ofcom says they have to", no further explanation. Now want to send an engineer out only when I'm in work to fix my not working internet. Wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy. Without a shadow of a doubt the worst company since the Acme corporation.

Do not use this company

I mistakenly signed up for fast fibre broadband on 12th July and now on the 1st August I have no broadband and little prospect of it till 8th August. This is because of the incompetence and lack of interest on behalf of plusnet to deliver the appropriate router.
Customer Services have been trained to say how sorry they are in 100 ways but no training on how to resolve a customer complaint. Pathetic, but what do you expect from a bt company

What a bad experience. As I could not compleate my purchase of a sim only on contract over the internet I phoned them up. Explained I was doing this for my farther who was not well but by me. He said he had to speak to my farther. He was explaining things to him that he did not understand. After 10 miniutes he handed the phone to me. I said he did not understand and I would sort it out. I was told he had to listen to it and to hand it back to him.
I said just forget i, and put the phone down.
I tried to order over the internet then, to be told I would not be able to have a contract with them.
He was abrupt and just went on and on. So I guess he blocked me from buying from them.
I then done it on the Internet with another company and was a better deal with more data and even £1.50 a month cheaper. There loss.

Switching from BT who's service was 54mb/s to Plusnet who promised to deliver the same but turned out to be 21mb/s at best. Asked to leave after a month because of the poor broadband speed and worse reliability. Was told I couldn't leave without paying nearly £100 as an exit fee. Sent a Breach of Contract Letter, uploaded via their website and signed up for BT. Within 24 hours Plusnet were on the phone agreeing that they'd breached their contract and agreed that I should be able to leave without financial penalty. I'd never go back to Plusnet, BT might be more expensive but at least they deliver the speeds they promise when you sign up. Good honest Broadband? Bad and dishonest in my experience!!

Simply awful. Clearly had to lure everyone in with deals, only to sting us with unsatisfactory service and high exit charges. Since day one they have been unable to provide even a dialup level service, with extremely poor download and upload speeds (on a line that was perfectly fine with Sky). We contacted their team multiple times but they have consistently been unable to fix the issues. I am often told they have "changed settings which take a few days to take effect". Nothing changes. I have no trust in this company and I urge others to ignore their offer prices. I'd say you get what you pay for, except you don't even get that.

I switched from Sky due to a price increase with no notification. I subsequently got told by Sky they would have cancelled the increase to keep me. I joined Plusnet, We'll do you proud?. From day one the phone worked, day 2 I got internet but it dropped out constantly. Customer service did not know what to do and I spent 15 minutes at a time getting know where.I canceled and still got nothing then received 2 threat emails of handing my debt over to a debt collection agency via email.To use the service only one device can be used otherwise it freezes or is slower than dial up. I am frequently useing my own data to tether the family which is far faster and more reliable. Do yourself a favour and do not join Plusnet as you will regret it.There is nothing more to say.Dont do it.Sky was a superior service from day one,no need to call customer service etc just a strong reliable service for 2 years. I am now going through a dispute with Plusnet via Ofcom and making a complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority for their misleading advertising. They duped me plain and simple.

Plusnet are terrible!!! it's been 1 month now that I am waiting to have my wifi transferred to my new address. The customer service is terrible! Numerous cockups which they blame on Openreach. Appointments scheduled to patch telephone line that I didn't know off, email send with the wrong time for the appointment and so on. Every time I call them you have to wait between 20-30 min for someone to pick up the phone and additional 20-30 min to clarify the issue so 1 hour of your life wasted on Plusnet. Yesterday an engineer from Openreach finally came to install my telephone line. The line was tested and he said all Plusnet need to do now is switch on the line and I'll have wifi. Today I get an email from Plusnet saying an additional visit is required as Openreach have not closed the case. I am so fed up with them! I wish i had paid the closing contract fee and get my wifi from someone else!DO NOT USE THEM! THEY SUCK ASS!

I've used Plusnet for an year, because it was the only supplier in my area which could provide the "highest" speed. During this year, the connection kept failing and the speed was a only half from what I was supposed to have. I raised it with their IT support, as usual, the "fault" was still on my side by having too "many" devices connected to Wifi (one mobile phone, a tablet and a laptop used occasionaly - you decide how many they are). The main trap is when your contract is due for renewal, you won't receive any notification, besides the DD email letting you know that in 3 DAYS they'll take an the increased payment from your bank account. So basically, unless you are very organised and keep track for all contracts renewal, you will not have any chance to reconsider your internet provider, or negotiate the contract with them.

I switched to Plusnet after 6 years of impeccable service from TalkTalk. I switched purely to take advantage of their super advertised speeds.

From day 1 my connection started dropping in and out. "It'll do that in the early days before settling down", they said.

6 months later and my Internet is still about as reliable as a politician. They want to send an engineer round - but will charge me for the pleasure if they can't find an issue, or somehow deem the issue to be part of my flat (despite TalkTalk working no problem for 6 years!). I can't predict when my Internet will be broken, so I'm not going to risk £140 engineer charge when there's a good chance it'll decide to work on the day the engineer comes.

I'm now stuck with this terrible service for another 12 months. At which point is will be switching to absolutely anyone else!

APPALLING SERVICE.
This company has given the most dreadful service I've ever experienced in 30 years in business. I had a crossed line which took 6 weeks for them to sort out. Call charges were incurred for calls I hadn't made due to the crossed line. After 12 calls and emails I finally thought a credit had been sorted for the incorrect outstanding amount, yet again I have received a bill saying an outstanding amount is due. The ridiculous thing is that every time they decide an amount is overdue they restrict access to my online account so I can't even see where the amount they are asking for has come from! This leaves me with no option but to call them (again) to try to sort it out. Absolutely absurd!

This is one of the most dreadful broadband providers, kinda shocking when BT owes plusnet. Since doing a move home with this company I had nothing, but poor service. The engineer didn't install my line correctly and there was a fault which didn't get rectified until about 11 after which took me outside of my 14 day cooling off period. Then the adviser told me the had arrange for an engineer to come out if I weren't available I don't be charged 65pound. The advisor never booked the appoint ment and put down on his system I wasn't in? Really I should of been able to come out of my contract which I weren't allowed according to plusnet. Because of there inconvience caused their end I was offered half price discount for 3 months and 50 pound as a goodwill gesture. Since then they keep restricting my services when my accounts in credit, one adviser told me I cannot use the 50 pound credit towards my bill as there systems are old and it doesn't allow them to. Second adviser stated it would be refunded to my account within 10 working days. Only to find out after 2wks it was applied as a credit note to my account. Due to the poor service I have decided to go to another broadband provider. I was advised what outstanding credit I have on my account would be deducted off my final bill. Another advisor told me this is not the case as I have decided to leave them so I loose out on the credit. This is extremely appalling as your company made a huge error which you had to put right. Now because I'm leaving you want to be bad minded and take back the credit you given me. I have proof of phone calls and messages. I will be taken this matter further to the ombudsmen this better not effect my credit rating.

They don’t even deserve one star for anything. As soon as BT took over the broadband speeds dropped dramatically. I can’t stream a thing between Thursday and Sunday because the speeds are so low. If you can ever get into contact with customer service (the chat is “unavailable” for the majority of the day, the link to their phone number mysteriously doesn’t work and if you post on their Facebook they threaten to block you) you’ve got more chance of being the Second Virgin Mary and giving birth to the Messiah himself via immaculate conception than you do of getting ahold of someone who will help you.

I put down a star but i'd lewve it blanc if it was an option.
I've called plusnet 150 times in the last 4 weeks. I've recently moved house and we were told it takes 2 weeks for a home move, 2 weeks later i was told that they tried to contact me about an enginneer coming around but couldn't get through to me. They ask for contact details they never use to contact their customers and the worse thing about it is they ask you to confirm those details for security reasons when you call them. None of them seem to know how to do their job or tell a customer the truth. They feed uou lies and wait for you to call back and find out its not true. It usually takes alot for me to posy a review. I've had to talk to a countless amount of idiots in that team before going through with this. PLEASE IF YOU HAPPEN TO BE LUCKY ENOUGH TO SEE THIS BEFORE JOINING THE COMPANY THEN DO NOT JOIN BECAUSE YOU'RE INTERNET WILL BE CRAP HALF THE TIME AND YOU'LL BE BETTER OFF TRYING TO FIGURE HOW TO SET IT UP YOURSELF THAN TO TALK TO THEM. Thsy have absolutely no idea what they are doing. The 2 weeks set up will easily turn into 4 or 5 weeks because they prioritise getting new customers alot more than looking after their own but if you go ahead. DONT SAY I DIDNT WARN YOU

Cumbria Plusnet  
I've given 3 stars purely because they're not as bad as companies like TalkTalk. I had endless problema trying to get Plusnet to refer a fault to BT, they eventually did and now fixed.

In brief, after days of them fobbing me off saying things like "see how it goes" they did a proper line test and established there was a fault and a BT engineer would need to be called. Then bounced me round the houses. After about 2 hours on hold and spoken to about 4 people they said they would refer this to their fault diagnosis team and I'd hear back within 3 days if they'd found a fault, this despite them already having confirmed there was a fault.

Several people later and me not taking no for an answer and just ringing up and speaking to someone else, I eventually get through to someone who knew what they were doing and he sent this for a BT engineer who came a few days later and fixed the problem.

Worst experience ever. I would not recommend this company to my worst enemy! Ordered broadband but have cancelled the order as there was no movement on the order for 17 days! Trying to contact their provisioning team is impossible, you can't chat only phone - tried to call on three occasions but gave up after 40 odd minutes each time, these calls were made at different times of the day. The customer service team has no interest when you contact them just kept referring me to provisioning team, aaah! When I said I wanted to cancel the order this was done straight away, no effort made to sort the problem, has Plusnet taken on more than it can chew? Now all I am waiting for is my refund, of course this could take up to 5 working days unlike when I placed the order the money was taken immediately. "We'll do you proud", in my case Plusnet failed absmaly. Thanks for letting me rant :)

I've given a 3 star overall because I've been with PN for 12 years and 9 of those were trouble free!
Only since BT bought out Plusnet have I had any issues, and when I have there has been a complete lack of interest from tech support. Pre-BT ownership I had 4 very short times where I had issues, all resolved within a day and ALL of those were down to something openreach had done when activating someone else's line in my area.

Speed is great, I get 76 download and 22 upload so can't complain there. But I'm a gamer, packet loss has to be the most annoying issue to have! Because my speeds are fine nobody seems to care! Previously I've had someone messaging on my ticket every few hours, my current issue I've been updating with what I've done for 5 days and had one response today. If they had looked at my previous messages then they would see I've already answered those questions So it's a wasted response on their part.

If you want fast download speeds then I highly recommend. If you want a reliable connection then don't.

Appalling customer service. It's impossible to get to speak to anybody who can deal with your issue - unless they're trying to get a payment out of you even if it's a payment you don't owe. I cancelled my account with these people because I was getting incredibly bad broadband connection and I couldn't get hold of anybody out of hours and even during hours I would hang on the phone for up to 45 minutes waiting to speak to an "expert" who didn't seem to be able to resolve my issue. Since then I have had numerous emails, text messages and letters saying there's an overdue balance on my account (the one I cancelled) and if I didn't pay up they'd be sending in the debt collectors. Apparently the easiest way to resolve the issue is to call a number which, of course, they always answer straight away, and pay so they can reactivate the account - the one I cancelled and don't want reactivated. Every time I reply to an email I get an email back telling me that email account isn't monitored. Every time I speak to someone they don't seem to be able to deal with the problem although they fully admit I cancelled the account and can even tell me the date when I cancelled it. Now apparently I owe a "cessation" charge on a contract I don't and didn't have. This is harassment and abuse and is causing me a lot of unnecessary stress. I never ever want to be involved with these people again. The stupid thing is, all this is apparently over a payment of just £1. Where on earth does that come from?!! My fear is that if I just pay the £1 they'll reactivate the account I don't want and then I'll be getting threatening emails, tests and letters telling me I owe a lot more than £1. It's extortion, nothing more and nothing less. My hope in posting this review is twofold - in the first instance I hope it stops anybody else signing for broadband with these hideous people, and secondly maybe somebody who can actually do something will pick this up and sort it out for once and for all and save my shattered nerves.

London Plusnet  
I'm leaving Plusnet after a 12-month contract for phone and fibre. My broadband has been dropping out at least 3 times a day since the day the contract started. I suspect the main problem is the Plus One router they supply but after complaining regularly the first 3 months and being taken through the standard checks again and again, with their refusal to do anything else, I gave up and lived with it.

My broadband generally reconnects of its own accord and the outage is short which is why I live with it, but it's disruptive when it happens in the middle of streaming, or me making a VOIP call, and it sometimes stays out for upwards of five minutes. Every few weeks, there can be down incidents that last as long as 1,5 or even 30 minutes, although the longer interruptions may be the service itself playing up, another reason to consider carefully if you need a reliable service.

I never did get around to buying my own router but if you're considering Plusnet and you end up with the same problems, it's something to try.

I've worked in technical support myself and, to be fair to Plusnet, unless you have an easily diagnosed issue, all phone/broadband first line support (in my experience) is crap as the agents are limited in their training and what they can do and have to take you through standard trouble-shooting everytime even when it's obviously inappropriate.

Also, check the advertised UPLOAD speed. I was appalled to discover that the standard fibre offering limited upload to 2Mbps, and had to upgrade to 76Mbps downspped to get a decent upload, which I needed. When I called to cancel, they implied that they no longer limit upload speed on standard fibre, but I advise you to be sure if upload is a deciding factor for you.

Appalling customer service. Lot's of hidden fees. The price seems to go up every so often without your permission and new customers always get a better deal than existing ones. They clearly only care about making every last penny and have no concern for their customers! Awful! Do not use Plusnet

Been with plusnet for a couple of years after having a terrible customer services experience with BT. Had a fault with my internet and expected nightmares to contact plusnet. Phoned through on an 0800 number and spoke to a English speaking assistant. They tested the line, found a fault, sent out an Engineer to resolve which was all done in a few days. I was constantly updated with the progress and would highly recommend Plusnet.

Sheffield Plusnet  
Its just as bad as the post office now. I have taken it out before moving houses and asked if I will be charged a move fee and I was told I will not - then of course I was charged and they pretended to be so generous by putting it into my monthly payments instead of charging me at once! A lot by the way! The internet connection was extremely bad so we called to complain and they sent out an engineer to fix it. Apparently he did fix it but oh well all the issues continued. We just bought a house and had our wedding coming up so extremely busy and anyone who ever called plusnet support knows the phone call takes at least 1h, so we did not have time to deal with it. Got back after the wedding and holiday and the time comes to give them a call. 2 weeks ago been told new router is coming in within next few days after I explained that this problem has continued for past 6 months! 2 weeks gone past and no sign of router, no phone calls, nothing is happening. I rang them today, of course it took one hour. I have been told I cannot resign from contract because I AM CONNECTED - it doesn't matter I have speed below 16-18 even thought I should have at least 34, it doesn't matter it keeps disconnecting at least 10-15 each day and sometimes every bloody hour, it doesn't matter I have been waiting for nothing and paying for nothing! It doesn't matter I have to pay my mobile provider for extra data because when I am working I can't even use my bloody broadband!!! I have been reconnected again, waiting again, complaining again and again and again. Worst company ever. Do not sign contract with them EVER. I am waiting 8 weeks and going to ombudsman services before I loose my mind.

Manchester Plusnet  
Switched from BT, because couldn't afford huge prices.
Broadband has improved from nothing, to now unreliable.
Low speed, frequent drop outs. Worse than BT, on same connection, so it must be inferior connections supplied by Plus Net.
Was shocked to be told that I couldn't cancel the contract, as the 14 day cooling off, applied from filling in the application form, not from the commencement of service, absolutely unethical and ruthlessly unfair.

We've been with Plusnet for 2 years. What a nightmare. During that time, we have had put up with prolonged and frequent downtime ie. internet connection failure and, when it did actually work, the speeds were so slow it was painful. Every time we reported it ( after horrendous waits in phone queues), we were expected to go through the same ridiculous rigmorole: having to proof that the fault is not ours. then having to wait for an engineer to come out then listening to the engineer guess what might be wrong and say they'd fixed it. They hadn't. Plusnet expect the customer to do all the legwork. If you don't tell them within 14 days of an engineer's visit that the problem is persisting, they insist that you have to go through the whole insane procedure again from scratch. they also refused to reimburse us for downtime - so effectivelly, we've been paying them for nothing. Getting on their backs to resolve things could quite literally become a full time occupation. Some of the call handlers are so obviously jobsworths, it really is pointless trying to press the the point that their service is appalling - they simply repeat the same platitudes from their scripts over and over and over again. We've had enough and are changing provider.

The service and customer service is appalling. Months of phoning to try to resolve the problems has been so frustrating. The service does not improve, it gets worse. You just get nowhere having spent hours on the phone you are just fobbed off with nonsense. A very dissatisfied customer along with many others it appears.

Uckfield, East Sussex Plusnet  
I cancelled a switch to Plusnet but they failed to stop it. They then cancelled my account after they performed the switch that should not have happened. Now I have no service. Their customer service has been awful. They don't get the significance of their error. Every time I call it's like Groundhog Day. There is no record of my previous conversations with them. NEVER USE PLUSNET.

Dreadful WiFi range you can take your mobile device less than a metre away and you will lose connection. The speed when you actually get a connection is dreadful. The broadband goes down multiple times daily which makes it almost impossible to do anything. Highly recommend staying well clear it's not worth the money at all and after a week you'll be begging that you headed my advice.

Although friendly on the phone, they're systems are ridiculous. All the different departments don't communicate with each other. I've moved out 28 days ago, told them before I was moving and twice since and still haven't been able to pay the closing balance! I'm wondering if I'll get charged another months worth now? Even when they phoned me to pay (after calling twice trying to pay and being passed to different departments and STILL not being able to pay) the same bloody thing happened! I still haven't managed to settle up...how many times do I have to call to give them money for a mediocre broadband service??

Dreadful line speed; varies from about 0.28Mb/s to 15Mb/s during the week without any changes on our part. Plusnet are unable or unwilling to sort this out. We are now involving the help of our MP and the Ombudsman. This company was once good, but now are terrible. Thank goodness I'm with Zen for my business.

I changed to plus-net 3 month ago after having 5 years trouble free withe another ISP. It was the worst thing I have ever don nothing but problems after problems, if you think of calling the support line you should set aside 2-3 hours, that's how long you will be on the phone and that's just waiting to get to talk to some one. Do your self a favour don't sing up with P/net. Get a divorce instead that's quicker and less stress.
