I cannot comment on the broadband as SSE have failed to provide a service although it was supposed to be up and running on FebruarY 15TH. Our previous provider therefore shut down broadband and telephone on 14th. As a result we had no landline for 16 hours and have now been told our broadband will become available on Wednesday 27th.. I could go on about the number of calls I have had to make and the reasons I have been given for the poor service but the lack of service has impacted on work,communication and has been costly in terms of phone calls and searching for wifi devices and has caused quite a lot of stress. I find customer service polite and helpful but in the end SSE failed to provide the service we signed up to. This has not happened before with previous suppliers and therefore is very disappointing and not good enough.

Gullane SSE  
Just awful. When I was switching broadband I thought id give SSE a try. BIG mistake. The broadband is literally unusable. Cant even load basic social media stories. Stream youtube/prime or netflix without problems. Drops out throughout the day even under light use and frequently disconnects, despite being a one person household. Well done SSE probably the worst broadband ive ever experienced. Avoid like the plague. Luckily I managed to leave under the 60 day happiness guarantee. Still a waste of time none the less.

Taunton SSE  
The best WiFi I’ve had. And I’ve had most company’s over the years. I’ve literally never had an issue. The call staff, any time I’ve called are the most kindest and politest people, every time. Cheap too.
4 friends of mine have now switched to SSE, after my recommendation. I always recommend SSE WiFi.

Gorton Manchester SSE  
I joined Sse as I was unhappy with the poor Internet connection I was getting whilst with my previous supplier BT. I couldn't get BT to solve my connection even though they took £129 off me for a call out. SSE were totally different - from the point I wrote them an email on their complaints forms I was assigned a dedicated sse complaints operative, who responded promptly to me with constructive steps to take to solve my connection. Within 3 weeks an Openreach engineer was outside our house fixing our line, which we didn't pay any money for this time. We've now got a reliable line at the correct speed. Can only say good things about Sse broadband (and nothing good to say about BT).

Having been with SSE for 3 years, I was disappointed to note that my monthly charge had increased without any notification when the contract had lapsed after 2 years. On contacting the Customer Service Team via email with my complaint, it was dealt with in a very professional manner & within 4 working days. They promptly transferred me to a better deal & gave me a small financial credit for my troubles. I am happy to say, this was a very easy complaint to sort & dealt with very efficiently. I continue to be an SSE Broadband & Phone customer.

Halifax SSE  
Ok. So i signed up with SSE about 3 years ago (on 18month plan) when the area first became fibre enabled and my existing supplier didnt provide a fibre service. They had a crazy deal on where it was free for the first 6 months.

Ridiculously - they didnt request the fibre connection from BT until the day they took over my line - basically leaving me without internet for a month while I awaited connecting.

However, since then I have had good reliable service. Speed is constantly above 30mb. There was a month where the speeds really dropped off to the extent even a youtube video would buffer and I was barely getting 1mb when I tested - however I emailed and they did some tests and resolved the issue pretty swiftly to be fair.

Since then - aside from (literally a couple of times) where I have just needed to reset the router, I have had no problems at all with the service.

We are moving house in about a month though now so have found myself here looking to see what deals there are and have realised that having been out of contract for a while we are probably overpaying. I suppose given my last experience switching to them has made me nervous about changing again for fear of being left internetless for a month.

Dorset SSE  
Had lots of problems, so they sent an engineer still had problems, they refused to send out a router as they sent one to start with. The router i first got was probably ok it was the phone socket that needed to be replaced. they sent me out a faulty replacement router. Spoke to a very unhelpful manager who refused to send me another router even after i promised to send it or the other one back. She said no as it would cost money to send it out. A whole £4.99 utter joke. many emails and calls, just to be fobbed off.its disgusting how they treat people just because they dont bother to test the routers that are old tec, never again will i have anything from them.

ABERDEEN SSE  
My FIBER internet with SSE is appalling it is forever dropping connection. I have since learned that you only have fiber internet if it is delivered straight to you house.mine come from the local exchange down to local box then is delivered to house by BT old underground copper cabling. No company should be allowed to advertise this without explaining it won't stop any of the problems you currently with connection while on this system. It is false advertising, I still have the same problems with fiber as I did with broadband but I just pay more now. My contract is due to end and I will go with the only company I know of who delivers fiber straight to the house which is virgin. Sick and tired of being ripped off
