Terribly slow broadband, typically takes 10-15 seconds once clicking a link on google to the page opening and often just does nothing and freezes. It may be 50% cheaper than BT but, from my experience, the saving is painful. Personally, I would avoid.

UK SSE  
At first the service was excellent. At the end of the contract I was robbed. Asked for a new contract. I now find that in the evenings it is so slow I cannot get e-mail. I am supposed to be on a 35Mb/s fibre service. They recently fired a lot of staff, hence the poor service. I have allready switched energy companies. I will switch phone and internet companies as soon as possible. I suspect they have a new boss who is killing the company.

County Durham SSE  
SSE are reselling a poor service from BT/Openreach, which was OK. Website and customer service is poor. No other way to contact them but by phone which took 20 minutes. Then put on hold and finally cut off. Very poor aftercare service.

London SSE  
I was a bit worried when I signed up for ssc broadband, as Iv read some of the reviews.
But I'm pleased I ignored the bad reviews and carried on with my contract, the service I received was excellent and the broadband was spot on, it came live early morning as I was expecting it to be late evening.
Happy customer

Staffordshire SSE  
We switched to SSE broadband a year ago and have had no problems. The speed we get is low - but that is due to location - it is actually slightly better than we were getting with our old provider and is enough for our needs - general internet use and Netflix etc. Customer service is excellent, response time to logging a phone outage was very good, the service has been very reliable. I'm very happy with SSE.

Argyll SSE  
The worst customer service.

Even after getting the confirmation of closing my sse account, the sse company carry on taking money and stole money from my bank account which left me in big trouble.

Avoid!
I am still waiting to be connected over a week passsed my transfer date! Takes ages to get through to anyone in customer service and when I do there is no resolve. How can companies get away with this?! If you purchase a product then you expect it to be fit for purpose. In any other area of retail this would be addressed and sorted. Disgusting.

Warwickshire SSE  
I do not think it is possible to put into words just how strongly I am urging the reader of this review to not sign up to a broadband contract with SSE. Find a different provider! My connection was due to go live 3 weeks ago now, and I still have no internet. I have spent hours over the last few weeks on the phone to the helpline, and most of that has been on hold. Be ready to be on hold for about 30 minutes before you get through to anyone. Then you will have to explain the problem again from scratch. Then you will be told to carry out some new check on the connection, probably one that you have already been asked to carry out several times before. Sometimes they will actually be proactive and phone you, but the person will have information about a week out of date and will be mystified at the fact that the thing they have called you about has now already been checked. The latest update is that they want to schedule their second engineer visit. Why this is required when the first engineer told me that they had tested everything at my end and found no problems, no one so far has been able to adequately explain. They want me to take another day off work. Should I change provider? There is apparently a chance there is a network problem which would go with me to a new provider, but I was still tempted to do so for the chance I got a more competent help service.

Fortunately I have now discovered that I can get fibre broadband installed in the property, so I will be doing that. I pity anyone in this position who does not have that option.

To sum up, sign up to a broadband contract with SSE at your own risk!
