My internet connection would regularly drop out 5-10 times a week. Usually for 1-10 minute periods. While SSE customer service was excellent, the issue clearly lies in-house as BT never found a fault with the line. Perhaps another good example of an initially excellent provider (PlusNet) getting too bloated and not upgrading their service to cope with it.

Incidentally, switched to a competitor and haven't had a single disconnect in over a month.

Birmingham SSE  
I have been an SSE customer for over a year now. The broadband package has been reliable, the speed as promised. I am most impressed with their customer service. Every time I contacted them whether to ask a question regarding my account or to switch tariff- I could not fault their professionalism nor the speed with which they resolve anything. I contacted them today after receiving a letter informing me that the package price will increase next month as my 1 year contract is due to be renewed.I asked to switch to another deal-lower than what I pay now and with the same benefits, which was immediately processed, no questions asked, no trying to sell any other products I might not want or wish to listen to an extensive sale 'pitch'. Simple and forward, 2 minutes phone call with a very friendly and professional call handler. I highly recommend this provider. Thank you

Edinburgh SSE  
Only recently joined them. So far, so good. Kept my number and transferred from TalkTalk.
I am paying for 35MB speed and after 4 days the speed is 33MB (highest it has ever been with any provider). 10 days on and it is still stable.
Customer service is easy to get through and always speak to someone in the UK.
I hope the service stays the way it is, I have had far too many poor experience from other providers in the past so still a bit apprehensive.

Sheffield SSE  
So many huge drop offs in the evenings - from a promised 30Mb to 2-5Mb - with a family of 5 it's just rubbish. Counting down until I can change.

Manchester SSE  
It just didn't deliver as promised, though they tried to resolve it I just couldn't carry on with the slowness of the broadband. That may be down to the Bt line in or down to sse, I don't know. I have a better connection using the tether on my mobile data bundle..

Gosport SSE  
The worst broadband experience I ever had. I have tried many : talk talk, BT, plus net, virgin, SKY during more than 20 years. Unfortunately SSE are by far the worst. My games are continually streaming even if no one else is on the WiFi, I am in a town with limited choices of providers at the present but I had BT which was great but due to the monthly package SSE offered I decided to go with them, mistake, wrong choice. I will soon switch back after 5 months been with SSE.

Bothwell SSE  
Ok so in general I would probably recommend, I’ve got Fibre up to 35mbps and although it is fast the only problem is it’s not very reliable if you demand a lot from your broadband. I will average speeds of about 26mbps but it can regularly drop to about 19mbps but often as low as 9mbps; this would be fine if I didn’t require decent speeds all the time but a lot of reboots are needed to keep speeds up. All in all if you only use your broadband casually to watch Netflix etc I’d say it’s great but if you need it for more demanding things I’d probably steer clear.

Shoreham-by-Sea SSE  
The user name they sent with the package did not even work and we could not logon to the account to change or do anything on the first day.
What a crap service on day 1.
Might be worth going with a more reputable one as it seems their broadband service matches their rubbish energy services.

Johnson SSE  
Avoid Sse at all costs for broadband. They cancelled my bt and gave me a live date. Put me online for two days then it went down. Phoned them to ask what was wrong. They said they put me on a temporary connection because my house wasn't routed for broadband. They promised to phone me back to give me a new live date. No phone call. Phoned them about 20 times and keep getting told lies. Still no broadband. I got a huge bill from Vodafone due to data usage so they offered me £20 which doesn't come close to the Vodafone bill. They say it will come on this Tuesday. Not holding my breath. Terrible.
