    It simply doesn't work. Dial up quality.

    Firstly, my router arrived 7 days late with no further explanation so I had no connection during that time.

    Now I have had "broadband" for 2 days with them and my current download speed is 0.15Mbps! I cannot even work so I need to go to the library.

    Avoid!

    My advice? STAY AWAY FROM POST OFFICE BROADBAND. I have it installed in a second home, where it's used for five days per month, but the router is switched on permanently. Went ok for some months, then Post Office upgraded us to fibre 'for free' - we didn't want it, but it was imposed on us. Shortly after that, the contract expired - and we had a large price increase imposed on us! Called them to complain, and they said they'd get someone to call me back. Callbacks never materialised - I've checked my mobile log and they have not tried to call me. Meanwhile, the latest bill is up by another £5 - it's now almost £10 per month on top of what it used to be, and they say that they can't revert it back to cable. I'm looking for another ISP.

    I hope people may look at my previous posts and take my advice. The advice is simple: AVOID,AVOID AVOID the Post Office for broadband. The speeds render the whole thing unusable, I was without a connection for a month - was promised twice that I would get a refund and didn't get a penny - CROOKS the lot of them. I even got threatening calls from a debt collection agency for money that they owed ME !
    Don't touch with a bargepole and how the regulator lets them get away with this I really don't know.
    AVIOD, AVOID, AVOID THE POST OFFICE BROADBAND. You have been warned.

    Just to update my previous review....
    I first reported loss of service on the 11th November (it first failed on or around the 7th November).
    After being told constantly that my service "would be fixed the next day", I eventually got use of my line back on or around 20th November. So for almost 3 weeks I was without a service, I got no useful support and even now I have broadband back the speeds are pitiful.
    My one and only piece of advice is to AVOID THE POST OFFICE PHONE AND BROADBAND at any cost. I may be compensated for the downtime but for the time I lost waiting for customer "support" to answer me, the phone calls I made (I had to use my own mobile) - nothing. AVOID, AVOID, AVOID.

    PLEASE, PLEASE do yourselves a favour and don't go with the Post Office (P Off about describes their attitude). The broadband except in the middle of the night or at 5am is pitiful - less than 1Mb and sometimes even less than that. You can contact them, they will tell you to run tests, they may tell you to buy a new micro-filter but the result is no better. My daughter was unable to do her school work, iplayer etc was unusable. As I write for the second time this year I have NO phone line and NO internet.
    PLEASE save yourselves so much hassle. They may be cheaper - you get what you pay for. AVOID !

    Truly awful. Rarely do we get 1 Mb/s - just tested here as .75 Megabits and then 0.53 Megabits. They are a Fraudband Provider. Email often can't be received, online banking hangs. Can't call it a joke as we're stuck with them till the contract runs out. Hah, How can it be a contract when they aren't providing what was agreed?

    Do Not Go With These! Even when the connection worked it was way below the lowest guaranteed speed. There's no way to cancel without incurring fees. They are thieves. I went with a different provider and now have no speed issues at all

    Absolute joke of a company. I live in a rural location however speeds of 7mbps were quoted. I struggled for almost a year barely getting over 1mbps. It would drop out regularly and the router needed restarting many times. I phoned their tech dept who stated they could see a fault, but kept making me do self checks and insisted that the fault was at my end. In the end, i told them to stuff it and i terminated my contract early and went with BT... BT identified a fault prior to connection going live and sorted it. I am now getting just over 6mbps and my connection has not dropped out once. They may be cheaper,but avoid at all costs. Shocking company and service.

    Post office broadband is a rip off, it is unreliable and dreadfully slow, lucky if we get 2mb on a 16mb contract, if this were a car giving 10 to the gallon and being sold as 50 to the gallon there would be uproar. frequently drops out, takes hours on the phone to report faults, hopeless!!

    I'm absolutely disgusted with my post office service
    2 weeks without internet dues to a fault on the outside of my property
    9 phone calls
    2 lots of waiting 72 hours for the engineer to fix the problem
    Nobody has came
    Every time I've called I've been fobbed off
    Will they be expecting to bill to be paid in full of course they will
    Costomer service is a joke!. Clear have no idea what they are doing

    I wish I had read the reviews first, this is the worst broadband I have ever had. Constantly drops connection, if it connects at all in the first place. Customer service constantly deny there is any problem with them although it has always been fine with other providers. Last time I spoke with them they said I was wasting their time and would have to pay to get out of contract. Do not, under any circumstances use Post Office broadband, I can't wait for the 12 months to be up so I can get rid of it.

    I am extremely happy with my service from the post office the speeds aren't the best out there but I am able to use my xbox online with no problems and streaming netflix and youtube is perfect. The downloads stick at about 780mb a second but I'm happy with that whereas other people giving low ratings might not be I'm not speed obsessed as long as my gaming works and streaming I tend to be happy and all that has worked since the day i installed my router untill now 6 months later not 1 problem

    The worst broadband known to this planet, to download two gigabyte of data it takes 99 hours. The downloads of this Internet are not worth paying for, I would never recommend this broadband to anyone. Truthfully it's awful, words can't describe how poor of provider of broadband this is. Don't waste money, just rubbish. Frustrating provider and crap Internet!

    Having read the bad reviews i was sceptical, so wish id had listened. Absolutely terrible hardly ever connects to internet and when it does keeps dropping out or buffering. I live in a good signal area of Derby and only a few yards from distribution box so no excuse for it .moved on and gone to sky. AVOID.

    Been with p o broadband for about 10 days now. I get about 7.2 mbps at peak times and about 7.7 at off peak. Only dropped out once turned router off and back on and was back on line in no time. P o said I would get about 8 mbps and they weren't far off. So far would recommend this product. The only thing I have found is that apparently if you go over 100 gb in less than a month they may throttle the connection for the rest of the month.

    Like an idiot I went with these cowboys for broadband.
    I had faster 56k dial up. When the internet went down which it did almost every day it was our fault according to the advisor at post office.
    We were supposed to have an engineer in August and we’re still waiting now.
    The advisors were rude as always interrupting me when I was trying to ask them something.
    Now I have switched away and before my final bill has arrived the idiots have set debt collectors onto me.
    For less than £20.

    Since moving over from Fuel Broadband, who always gave a good service. My broadband has slowed to a snails pace. I am struggling to get anywhere with the customer service department. Very poor alround, I am deeply unhappy with this company.

    Horrible customer service.

    Switched from Post Office to BT as BT gives 5x better speeds for the same price.

    When I got the BT Setup, post office refused to give my new provider access to my phone line demanding a fee with ZERO notification. Terrible and cheeky customer service kept trying to fod me off until I got 1 good person after 2 hours.

    This is an appalling service. Log in using password given does not work, so no access to any bills. Broadband speed under 1 mb per Sec! Also unreliable and not working at all at times. Customer service non existent. Telephone number given, through different filters gets you back to square one.

    Not impressed. Had the router delivered to my local post office as I didn't know if it would fit through my letter box, they promptly sent it back to the sender! Rang them and got them to send it to my home, knowing I would have to pick it up from my local collection centre, they left it behind a bin! Connected it, and now can't even check my lottery numbers, apparently 'it's a known problem'! Great if you work from home and can't access sites that you depend on. Not impressed.

    Absolutely disgusting treatment of a customer! Been with them for a year and while the service was mostly ok for the price, suddenly my bill jumped from £20 to £37! £37 just for internet and a phone line I've never used, no tv or other extras. When I contacted them about it they told me it's because I've come to the end of my contract. I was told I would have the £17 refunded if I agreed to sign another contract with them. Its 2 days before my payday and I have an 11 week old baby and that money was set aside for formula as I explained to them but was told that is the only way I would get the money refunded and would have to wait a minimum of 5 days for the refund. What good is that to me and why would I sign another contract with them if this is how they treat their customers? So now my baby has no formula. Thank you very much! And the woman kept saying she was trying to help me! I worked in tele sales and trust me, this is NOT helping. Both people I spoke to over the phone were extremely patronising and really didn't care about the situation they'd left me in. Customer service is beyond appalling. Avoid these scumbags.

    Yet another unsatisfied customer with poor speeds and dropped connection throughout the day, customer services are not much help keep changing router settings and say monitor for a few days if no improvement contact us again (and wait in a queue usually for 15+ minutes) Lesson learnt, free broadband means crap speeds and connectivity

    Shocking. Rural area customer who regularly received 7mb with BT. I only receive that in the middle of the night with the Post Office, with evening speeds of less than 1mb.

    Advised that they did not have the necessary equipment in the exchange to cope with demand, so I am able to leave my contract.

    I found out after I ordered that a few other people on my street had ordered and cancelled due to poor speeds, so my biggest gripe is that they happily accepted my order, knowing they could not provide a service.

    Totally Useless if you want to access bills etc having a Kindle Fire or basic windows mobile that does not support Adobe flash player. It is impossible to view your account, I have complained repeatedly but I am stuck with pobroadband for 18 months - I was with Fuel Broadband and was switched knowing none of PO's short comings. I am not prepared to pay extra for paper bills. It is their failure and I believe all customers should have equal access to their accounts, I am awaiting a response to my latest complaint.

    I wish I'd read these reviews before I signed up for Post Office broadband. Yes, it's cheap but a false bargain in that the connection constantly drops out (6 times an hour on more than one occassion). I live alone, have a laptop and mobile phone and do nothing more than email and watch the iPlayer, so not a heavy user at all. I didn't bother complaning as on a couple of other occassions I found that a) any calls to Customer Service take more than half an hour to connect and b) I found their staff either pleasant but unable to help or just plain surly. I endured my 12 month contract for 11 months and paid an early exit fee to swap to John Lewis. It doesn't cost much more (£1), includes free evening and weekend calls and a £40 John Lewis gift card. The difference is like night and day! There was an initial problem with my connection and I was given a £30 credit for the inconvenience. I've been enjoying a fast and stable connection since and can hardly believe it. Surely all broadband offered in the 21 century should be like this? I feel sad for Post Office Broadband. Their poor service will be their downfall, probably resulting in job losses. I wouldn't recommend this "service" to anyone.

    I have been a Post Office Home Phone and Broadband customer for 5 years - the broadband has been unbelievebly slow but we put up with it because it was cheap. We recently lost all phone service so we called them - they said they'd send out an engineer (which they did) but neglected mention how much it would cost!!!! I was informed by the engineer that if they tried to chrge me to complain. Sure enough on my next bill was a charge for £144!!!! When I raised the query they said I had been informed of the cost when I called, which I hadn't because if they had told me it was going to cost that much I'd have cancelled the phone line as it was never used and we only had it out of habit! As I said we have been with them for 5 years never been late with a payment always abided by the term and conditions, and this is how they treat a good customer - by lying and ripping us off! STAY AWAY (sorry for the shouting but I wanted to make sure you heard me!) The way they treat their customers stinks and the way they talk to you on the phone is shameful - their customer 'service' providers are rude and the informatuion they give you is incorrect (and sometimes downright lies!). I don't care how cheap they are that level of service is not worth any financial saving.

    Despite twice querying during mye transfer from Plusnet why there was a 15 day wait between telephone and broadband changeover I was not told that the service would be by a different line. They could then have told me the likely speed. I received 6+Meg from Plusnet.The speed PO quoted was 7-8 meg, I actually received 0.5! It took 3 days to get admission that this was all they could provide. They have also billed twice for the rental despite my warning they were duplicating! They say they didn't guarantee a speed. They are still quoting on their speed checker 7-8 Meg for my neighbour!

    Thank goodness my contract with this lot is up, had nothing but trouble with there rubbish broadband, cuts out two or three times a day, they do nothing about it, do yourselves a favour and go elsewhere, you will have trouble finding a good review on here about them, be careful because they are changing there name now, probably because of all the rubbish reviews, phoned them today too tell them I won't be staying with them, tried to talk me into taking out another contract, I told them they would have to pay me to stay with this trash broadband.
