Recently service failed entirely, mainly due to a fault in network from 2012 never rectified by BT which caused very much noise on the phone line and erratic broadband. Customer service, in Scotland I believe so no language problem, handled my complaint ccompetantly and soon raised a ticket for faults to be handled by BTOpenReach. A day or so later, I was visited, by appointment, by a BT engineer who replaced the 50-year-old wiring and the master socket. Results: crystal clear phone reception and double the Broadband speed. An excellent outcome thought I.

The worst service I've ever used since the advent of broadband. Many a time there were vivid reminders of the dark days of 56k dialup with pages loading in minutes, downloads speeds in single digits and customer service that don't give two hoots. Unreliable in the extreme. It's talktalk disguised as a reputable company.

I was switched from fuel broadband to post office broadband when the buyout happened. I assumed that only the name of the provider would change but I was so wrong! Speed is up and down, never as fast or as stable as Fuel Broadband was. I was assured it was due to my area, that no one would be able to provide me better speed. Switched to BT and happy again. Do not try Post office!

I applied for PO broadband as a result of the 17mb offer. Once installed I was getting between 2mb and 6mb. After repeated contacts with so called engineers I looked for another service. I chose Talktalk . The PO insisted that Talktalk could not better their speed. Guess what, I'm now getting between 35mb and 45mb.
What ever you do don't go with Post Office, their service and product is rubbish !

We were recently offered a free upgrade to fibre from standard broadband to the end of our contract. Looking at the mostly terrible reviews we were doubtful. However so far it has been very successful with download speeds at the lower limit promised. We did lose Wifi once but this was quickly sorted with the help of their technicians.

This company is beyond belief I have had
nothing but problems since I signed up with them the broadband is off more than it's on.When you phone them up they say they will phone you back after doing tests but they don't the service is a joke, but they still send out the bills and expect you to pay for broadband you have not received.

21st March, 2018 VERY IMPORTANT...there IS a getout clause! This will be of help to many people currently itching to get away from this shower...by the way, Post Office broadband is owned by TalkTalk...that goes some way to explaining why the service is chronic. There's a ruling stating that if prices rise during your contract, you have the right to cancel and close your contract within a month of being notified. I have been saddled with them for 6 months, with the dread prospect of facing another 18 months. Thankfully, they decided to raise the price of the phone aspect of my package by £1 a month...FANTASTIC! Thank you TalkTalk, you've just given me the tool I needed to quit! I phoned yesterday, and gave them their marching orders, and immediately phoned Plusnet, the best provider ever, and reinstated our 12 month contract....with great joy and satisfaction. Don't delay...phone them and close your contract as a result of increases.

Long-time and long-suffering Unlimited Broadband customer. Speed has never been good (apparently we are a "long way" from the exchange - 5360 metres) and despite line tests, re-setting of ports, new routers etc, service is at best patchy and certainly not reliable.

Glasgow Post Office  
For goodness sakes, whatever you do, DO NOT sign up with Post Office Broadband. It is absolutely useless..period. I have been stuck with them now for 6 months, and I'll be shackled to them for another 18 months, sadly. I have phoned on 7 occasions, complaining about the constant internet crashing, which happens at more or less the same times every day. I have been fobbed off with numerous different excuses as to why that should be, and as a matter of fact I have just come off the phone to them, during which time I mentioned that I had signal dropout 3 times in the last hour...she checked her data, said that this was not the case, and stopped short of calling me a liar. I was transferred to a cancellation receptionist at my request. She told me that they have no duty to provide wi-fi under the contract...only broadband, so I ask you...what good is broadband without the wi-fi? I was informed that if I wanted to leave, I'd have to pay them £153 for early termination. I will be taking the matter further with the ombudsman, but in the meantime...AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE. If you want reasonably priced and totally reliable broadband (and working wi-fi). go to Plusnet. I wish we'd never left them.

Bridlington Post Office  
Worst customer service experience ever. Sign up for a 2 years contract and they can't even give a new router ask me to use my existing 4years old router. Rude telephone customer service. Regretting now.
Kingswood Post Office  
Very poor. They cancelled my initial order having misunderstood my requirements, then for the follow-up charged a connection fee and claimed an engineer needed to visit. I took a day off work to wait, only to be told that this wasn't then required because
a line was already at the property - which, you've guessed it, I knew and had informed them of for the initial order that they then cancelled. I complained at losing a day's leave from work for no reason and was offered £5 in compensation. (Yes, £5. That wasn't a typo.) I originally ordered and chose to pay line rental up-front to reduce the cost - that wasn't processed - and also went through a cashback website. They refused to honour the cashback because the order was cancelled - this is true, but it was cancelled and re-ordered by them. To top it all off, the broadband speed is very poor - although to its credit its fairly reliable. Overall, 1 star rating is being generous.

I have been with the Post Office for years because it is the cheapest package for calls. Broadband is reliable but very slow - less than 2mbs and half that of neighbours who are with other providers. I won compensation via the Ombudsman but no improvement. They just say I am out of contract and free to go.

I have already left a review but unfortunately I have had to contact these people again today. I was dreading it. Well here's the good news. I put down my mobile as the best contact and they phoned me not on my mobile but on my landline (pure fluke I was in) then I got put on hold as they couldn't actually do it due to technical difficulties surprise, surprise. I finally got through myself (as usual hanging on and on and on and I was told it was £37 to keep my old number (moving a few miles down the road) and then they told me that my current 'cheap' contract becomes null and void as I am moving and I would have to renegotiate a new one surprise, surprise. I opted to take a 12 month one at £4 a month extra so I could get away from these parasites ASAP. Now for the bad news (as above :-(
Essex Post Office  
Total rubbish. Avoid them like the plague Good points(1) Rude Customer Service, (2) Rude and Inflexible Customer Service, (3) Lied to me on the phone, (4) Didn't call back when they promised to, (5) Even though they made the mistake they told me it would cost me £264 to come out of my contract. Now let me get onto their bad points ...

Have had Post Office Broadband for 30 days now. Have never seen a download speed in excess of 2.1Mbs (It's often under 100kbs/s!). There have been frequent dropouts (no broadband!) since the first 10 days. The only time I've seen results that match the advertised speed is when I do a speedcheck, though on the last occasion it returned a download speed of zero Mb/s. Good price rubbish product.

If I could put a 0 as a star RATING I would this is by far the worst internet provider I have ever come across I am in the process of a dispute with the OMBUDSMAN regarding the speed of the internet and unfortunately it appears that the Post Office have won the decision is that they don't need to rectify the problem of the SPEED which IS VERY VERY SLOW DISTGUSTING DO NOT SIGN UP WITH THIS COMPANY don't believe what they tell you it is a ploy to get you signed up they did not deliver I am not happy with this company and I DO NOT recommend them to anybody stay away from them!!!
Bedford Post Office  
We have braodband and anytime phone calls with the Post Office and setup has been quick and easy.
The braodband package is up to 38mbps which has proved very stable and consistent, we are getting at least 37mbps up to 37.78mbps at all times of the day.
The support team are friendly and know their stuff however we haven't needed much imput from them as issues with the service have been minor.
Based on experience from other providers of phone and braodband in the past and problems with braodband stability the Post Office have done us proud.
I would highly recommend the post office on our experience so far.

Sheffield south Yorkshire Post Office  
If only I had read these awful reviews before I transferred my broadband and phone from BT to the PO on 12th January. I am experiencing the same as everyone else and the general service is diabolical. I cannot continue or I will have a breakdown, my nerves can't take any more after just a few weeks. I have today sent a recorded delivery letter stating that I am cancelling my DD with them and returning to BT. I am paying more than I have ever done for broadband as I have no service after more than 20ft in a bungalow, so having to keep buying more data for my mobile. 4g seems my only way of using the internet. I have to use my printer using the IP address as it won't print from devices. If the PO wish to take me to court for cancellation, they can, I don't care, I cannot put up with this dreadful service any longer. It is they who are in breach of contract as they are not providing the service that we are all paying for. I wouldn't have the PO broadband if they offered it to me free of charge. I am ready to challenge them. If you value your sanity, please avoid this company.

Stoke-on-Trent Post Office  
Where do I start?! Reading all other reviewers is like reading my own problems! 2 years of sheer headaches with this 'provider' and I've finally given up. Initial set up went wrong leaving me with no service for over a month, then the service was so bad that I might as well not of had any quite frankly. Numerous calls to technical support were carbon copies of other reviews on here, plug into test socket, it's your home, charge for engineer etc. Engineer visited and said the problem was with BT, I have been screenshotting the connection when it drops and have 100s! Told by Post Office once issue was resolved that I'd be compensated and that I wouldn't receive this bill only to receive it anyway. Rang customer service and told blatant lies that there's no problem and the bill will need paid despite me being promised it didn't! If the internet is working fine then how come I have screenshots saying connected but no internet or ready to conbect when quality of internet improves? And how are so many people here saying the same thing?! Avoid this shoddy company at all costs, terrible customer service and total lack of internet at times and sometimes internet being off the whole day! I'd of liked to give no star at all but had to so I could leave a review.

Perth, Scotland Post Office  
DO NOT SIGN UP. CHEAP FOR A REASON.
Promised good speeds but actual speed was 0.7mpbs at best - totally unusable. Previous broadband supplier gave speeds of 6mpbs.
Post Office tech support initially blamed it on my phone socket until I told them it worked fine with previous supplier.
They finally admitted that they couldn't deliver the speeds promised and contract was ended.
They didn't complete switchover correctly which took several calls to resolve.
Back with my old supplier and I suddenly have 7mbps!
Very nice staff at the post office telecoms team but unfortunately let down by poor broadband speeds.

Appalling - don't even be tempted. I placed my order, they told me when the service would go live and then cancelled the order. When I called to sort this out I was told I had to wait another 2 weeks and there was nothing they could do. I then had to phone 3 times to get the voice mail service switched off, each time I was told it had been done. My broadband speed is at best appalling at worst unusable at 0.1 mbps
Everytime I ring customer services they tell me to send in screen shots of speed tests, ping tests and trace tests. Then there's some reason they can't accept them. The last lot I sent were going to be sent to BT openreach to investigate the fault - but they didn't send them in time so that I now have to spend a day performing tests again and send them again. Each time I send them something it's another week before they respond. .. I'm now 6 months into an 18 month contract and loosing the will to live. I couldn't even be bothered to be angry about it today!

Not even worth one star i have had problems from the very start when pput in they put it against a wall so I couldn't take the face off the box if anything went wrong, he then changed the leads and told me i would not be charged then tried to bill me. then called them after i came home from work to find it not working ,they asked me to take the face off the box and I couldn't so they had to send an engineer to fix it and told me i could be charged up to £140 he was here for 4 hours they sent me a faulty kit to start with then went up the pole to check that out and other things after he left it worked the day after fine then 2 days later netflix on my tv stopped working and random websites like adsa wont load on my laptop i called them up and they said if you are connected by one device thats good enough for the company absolutely disgraceful service

Bucks Post Office  
Furious that I pay for fibre and still get a cheap speed that constantly buffers. Customer service do not help in the slightest and tell lies. I was turned of today even though I paid my bill at the beginning of the month I was even told when I called that he could see that and does not know why my internet was turned of he said he had gone straight to exchange to get it lifted within an hour 3 hours later still not lifted so my boyfriend called them and was told I called today paid the bill after the restrictions no I have proof from my bank it was at the beginning of the month and k was told that by the previous customer service rep. But then the second one said the first one had not spoken to exchange so therefore it would take 24 hours. So I went mad no way I paid my bill and should not have been restricted. He now says he definitely has spoken to exchange and it will take 2 hours to lift no I want it on now I need it on I'm furious. I will be speaking to the ombudsmen if it isn't on in 10 minutes.

I switched from BT to Post Office broadband in Jan 2018. The big switch over day was 5th Feb.18. BT switched off my services at about 10.15am. Post Office livened things up at about 16.30 so the switch isnt quite seamless. The internet was quite unstable for the first 12 hours. Mobile phones having trouble connecting etc. I reset smart plugs a number of times. Amazon echo and dot ended up having a mind of their own.!! I called Post Office and they did SOMETHING to the router and everything seemed to settle down. A week later I was still thinking that although it was all working, things were not as they should be. I sent a message to Post Office online and they called back within 24 hours. I previously used my own TP Link modem router when I was with BT. They were very friendly and talked me through the settings I needed to set my own router - log in name and password etc (not that same as the account log in) and suddenly EVERYTHING was working great. All smart devices - plugs, bulbs, phones, tablets, TVs laptops...the lot. Im now getting a slightly faster speed than when I was with BT. My conclusion is that the Post Office router just isnt very good. It works but it should be better. To be fair I didnt think much of my BT or Sky one when I was with them so I think a lot of ISPs are simply giving out 'free' modem routers that are just not as good as they should be. If you want a decent modem router, best buy your own than use the ones ISPs send out.!!

Was struggling financially and at a low point when I saw this PO home phone & broadband advertised in my local branch.
Was given a ‘Go live’ date in October 2017. Day came and went. Had already received welcome pack and router, no engineer showed up to do installation. and no phone or internet service ‘went live’. Calling customer services. spoke to various personnel. ranging from politely useless to downright nasty. Eventually, long story short, ‘service’ started. They had told me that if I report a fault, and it turns out to be my equipment or home wiring ( I don’t even own my flat) then I will be liable to pay £140. I am too nervy to report the constant faults, in case they somehow manage to blame me. And the call charges are a rip off and I can’t view my bill online, even with a device that can handle the outdated adobe flash that they use. Grrr. I’m ditching this **** as soon as I can.
