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.

Portree SSE  
UK based call centres are the sole reason I stuck with SSE.

Good internet speeds, terrible reliability. Constant drop outs for 1-2 minutes pretty much 2-3 times a day. Don't buy their lies either, this issue is with their broadband servers (or more specifically, the ones they hire/piggyback).

Midlands SSE  
I am with them for a year now and so far I am very happy. As an SSE customer, I've got a very good deal on fast broadband with a fixed monthly payment for 3 years. So I can have peace of mind and not stressing out and fighting for a good deal every year like I was with previous providers.
A few days ago, I had some problems with my broadband, and I was nicely surprised how easy it was to get in touch with the correct department. They were very polite, helpful and sorted out my internet connection very fast. I hope they will stay responsible as they are now, so they can gain more satisfied customers like me.

Shifnal SSE  
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.
