Melton Mowbray SSE  
After waiting 8 weeks to get installed, I was happy at first with the speed I was getting, which matched the speed I was paying for.
But now my speeds are abysmal, it seems that after using about 2gb in a day they slow your download speed down to about 20 - 100kb per second, which then seems to be the norm for the rest of the month.
Also the wifi completely drops out for about 10 seconds at least twice an hour every hour! Causing my downloads to fail, they even charged me a different amount every month for 5 months, were every bill was higher than it should have been.
It's cheap and discounted for a reason! Stay clear!

Oldham SSE  
Promised average 35 Mbps speed, but is now always UNDER 4 Mbps!! (When I could still cancel the service, the speed was around 30 Mbps) Constant delays to get the service running, I had to register online FOUR times because of 'technical' errors. The first engineer to install was rude and didn't do it properly, had to get another to re-do it.The customer service was always very nice, but actually, nothing gets done!!! Connection cuts off every few days for no reason. It's a cheap deal because it's a cheap, unreliable service.

A faultless move with everything done when expected or sooner with Broadband change over occurring seamlessly. Moved from TalkTalk and the improvement in every area is clear. Better service, better connection, better, more friendly and informative customer service. I am delighted and a lower charge as well!! I would recommend SSE Broadband without reservation!

Hincklye SSE  
I had moved and booked a broadband connection £21.00 per 76meg ultra-fast with SSE and I was told that I need to wait 14 days cooling of period. Now hence I have just signed up and have no equipment of SSE within my property,(can see how that one works)after the cooling period had passed and had no confirmation on the go live date.
After lots of phone calls to SSE and told so many stories.

First story" we would have to wait again for the order to process and we will receive confirmation within 7 days."

Second Story" After contacting SSE after we had no contact with SSE, we was told that its in hand and we will get a call from customer services."

Three Story" We had to chase Up SSE and was told that we will have to apply again, the worst thing was we was sent a contact from SSE to hear the deal we had is not available and we need a new tariff. We asked why is it SSE trying to change the contract,due to SSE have stopped the Tariff we was sold."

Four Story"We was told that it will up and running within 7 days and will receive the equipment."

Five Story" The Kit had arrived and was plugged in tested and no internet."

December came and gone and still had no Internet.
So we had promises made and nothing was going to plan.
I find the company are lacking communications skills and rather miss leading.
The company seems to be run by Muppets and I have contacted on numerous concussions and to be lied too.
The left hand don't know what the right hand is doing.
I would not Trust this company due to the misconceptions.
A company of such a size and the CEO DON'T care what is going on within the company.
CEO don't care as long as he gets paid for such a sub standard service.
Great Britain is not great any more with companies like this and Muppets in control.
Do Not Use Company It will cost you and turn you grey.

Northamptonshire SSE  
Was previously with BT elsewhere - changed to SSE when I moved. Cannot fault the broadband or phone service. Given a date when it would be connected - no delays. Good speed and reliability. The wireless router provides good connectivity around the house. All this and about a sixth of what I was paying BT.

Oxford SSE  
Very pleased so far (this is day 1 of having broadband with SSE in a new property). Given the deal currently on offer (ie 'free' for 2 years with 12 pounds lines rental), there seems to be a backlog (I waited 5 weeks to be up and running). When you order, you need to let the 14-day cooling off period pass before they can do anything with your activation, the phone line is then activated 7 days later, then the broadband around another 7 days after that. Mine was a little longer, as unbeknown to me, once the phone line is activated, you actually need to call up and place the broadband order (as, apparently, would have been advised in the welcome letter which I never received). Luckily, I found all this out by weekly calls to get status updates). I must say though, every time I called their call centre, every operator was fantastic - they took the time to go through my query methodically, were friendly, and gave me confidence that, although there was a back-log, my order was being worked on and gave me estimated dates for completion. I've now got my broadband up and running, and all is good, hopefully it remains so.

Internet is constantly going on and off at any random moment and restarting itself. Internet also switches off whenever a device connects to it. Customer service only open 8-8. Would not recommend at all! Awful internet connection.

Mansfield 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.

Newcastle upon Tyne SSE  
Truly awful. We have been with SSE for years with electric and gas and have never had an issue. Three months ago I asked SSE to supply our broadband. All online stuff was completed and they sent an email asking me to complete my registration.
Now, every week they sand me the same email saying I have not completed my registration and I need to, then they say I am registered and they do not have my full address so I need to reply to the email with my full details. Which I do. This triggers an email that says this email address is not monitored.

A few days later I receive another email reminding me to register for my broadband package.

Three months now without broadband or phone line and if I call them there is a hold message saying it will be over an hour to talk to anyone or I can request a call back. I have requested 4 calls back now and received none.

Truly the worst customer service I have ever seen anywhere. Ever.

Suffolk SSE  
I would like to thank for the best broadband which I had in UK!

All other companies charge high prices for low speed broadbands and let me tell you - it's insane! Then I moved to new place and I found about SSE company I tried and from now on I recommend it to everyone.

This company doesn't spend a lot of money for advertising so it's common that most of us even don't know about SSE.

Just one minus is that you need to spend around 20 minuets to be connected to customer service. I hope they going to sold out this problem soon.

In the end even you need to spend around 20 minutes on phone but you going to have high speed broadband for amazing price.

All the best!

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  
Disgraceful, Unethical company that preys on vulnerable people

In Oct 19, I placed an order for broadband. I lawfully recorded the call in which we agreed the start date. I made it clear I have a life-threatening medical condition. I also stated I require all comms in large print.
SSE subsequently cancelled my order for reasons unknown and failed to resolve the matter to my satisfaction. So, I cancelled well within the 60-day Happiness Guarantee, which states you can cancel free of charge.
Following cancellation, the company sent me a barrage of small-print letters it knew I could not read. Since there was no need for contact, I wrote to head of complaints asking them to cease contact. Meanwhile, I received a threatening letter telling me I still had to pay all bills!
In response, I made a subject access request on Nov 19 asking for the contract that serves as the legal basis for any charges they planned to generate. They never responded thus breaching their statutory obligations under the DPA.
Yesterday I came home from a hospital appointment to find a demand from SSE for payment within 7 days! SSE has generated a demonstrably fraudulent bill since I don’t have a router or a land telephone and they haven’t been able to provide a contract between us (because there is none, since I cancelled).
As a direct result of SSE’s behavior, my condition has deteriorated and I have stared suffering seizures. I have also had to stop the potentially life-extending treatment I was on because my doctor advises it cannot be used in the presence of heart palpitations – which I have suffered since receiving the fraudulent bill. So SSE is literally putting my life at risk.
SSE staff are happy to lie and mislead customers in the full knowledge I am recording the call. My evidence proves my case unequivocally and I am confident the Ombudsman will find in my favour, but meanwhile SSE is going to keep demanding money and adding late charges, potentially ruining my credit rating.
What a way to treat a vulnerable customer. SSE is an utter disgrace. Due to the extenuating circumstances, even Ofcom has intervened – they don’t generally get involved in complaints but they have instructed SSE to stop harassing me.
Please, stay away from this dishonest, unethical company and if you do have dealing, record all calls. It is lawful so long as you tell the at the outset you are recording. I thank god I had the foresight to record all calls
I have provided the Ombudsman with full medical evidence to back up my claim.

I have been a customer of SSE 76mb for just over a year now, and am well satisfied. speeds are as stated.
Price is under half of that i was paying with Virgin 20mb.
Transition was smooth and have never had to call them.

One question tho, to those satisfied and have reached the 18 months, what is the deal/procedure at the end of the 18month term, if any?

Nottingham 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.

London SSE  
Hi I thought I would provide an update about my Ultrafast broadband from SSE (found on MSE) - bit of a dispute originally as I needed a new line MSE said free line, SSE wanted to charge £160. 6 week delay whilst they tried to transfer a business line with BT which I wanted to cease. Eventually got new line fitted after much chasing.
Having read the horror stories on here beforehand, I'm quite pleased with the service so far. Yes it does appear to be throttled at peak times, but still seeing 30-50MB download, 18-20MB upload speeds. My son hasn't started shouting about the speed of Youtube, Xbox etc yet. Time will tell if it remains reliable and speedy when holidays end. So far cheap deal for £21 line and BB, but not quite Ultrafast.

Might be worth going with a more reputable one as it seems their broadband service matches their rubbish energy services.

Johnson SSE  
Absolutely abysmal service. Stay clear. Due to change over from BT last Tuesday, phone and broadband. Phone was changed over. They failed to tell me an engineer was coming to change socket for broadband. Did not know this until got home and found note through door from engineer. Tried phoning SSE that night, after an hour someone answered who said they were only taking messages and would get someone to call me the next night. Guess what no-one called back. Next night after an hour got through to someone who aid they would be in touch to re-arrange engineer visit. On Saturday someone called to say they would contact me by phone either later on Saturday or Monday to let me know when engineer would be coming. Guess what-no call yet. I spent over 30minutes on the phone tonight but did not get through to anyone. I did get a letter today saying they want to resolve my complaint to my satisfaction and will be in touch in due course. Easily soled-Answer the phone-Call back when you say you will-Arrange engineer visit. Surely not difficult. Hint to anyone thinking of changing anything-find the customer service number and call it and see how long you have to wait. If it is a long time they must have loads of complaints. Final bit of advice-AVOID SSE. Only 18 months to go before I can change provider.

Runcorn SSE  
Easily THE WORST broadband service we have ever had! And we had broadband many years ago with v21 who practically conned us out of money with contract issues. I would have them back any day over this dismal excuse for a broadband service.
Like other reviews, it started out ok. We signed up to the £21 fibre deal. Speeds were alright, with occasional drops, but we were told this was due to the broadband 'settling'. Well, 8 months, several emails, phone calls and letters later, it would appear that our broadband must still be 'settling'. Poor thing, feeling so unsettled!
The customer service just kept telling us that we had too many devices connected to our router, which is why the signal was awful, devices would lose connection completely for minutes and the speed would reduce to minimal kbps. I tried to explain that we had the same number of devices with o2 (BEST home broadband provider we ever had), sky and plus net and we've never had this number of issues.
Being a bit of an internet geek and doing lots of tests, I established that the router was dodgy, but they refused to agree with me or even try a new one or send out an engineer. Very poor indeed!!
Unfortunately, we are stuck with this terrible service for quite a few months... but the sooner we can get out of it, the better!! Plus net or BT here we come!!
I would avoid, but I understand that some people have had an excellent experience with SSE. I guess it's all down to luck of the draw!! Good luck people and long may we get a day when broadband is fast and free for everyone!!

Most people come here and react in a negative manner, Most of their issues are down to user error.

SSE has been great these last few months, Speed hasn't dropped from what was promised, I can also double my fibre speeds to 76mbps for an extra 3 quid.

Llanharan SSE  
If you go with sse don't take it with you when you move, over a month to swap to the new house and had to take out a new contract rather than a direct transfer. since then the connection has been hesitant and intermittent often disconnecting and reconnecting on the wifi. was told during the move they would move my connection date forward seeing as we had been trying to get this organised for over a month before the move and only managed to speak to someone that knew what they were doing a few days before the move, but what they didn't tell me was, that was just the phone line and the internet connection would still be another 3 weeks. no point ringing up to complain, all they want is to close the complaint whether its resolved or not. I'll be looking elsewhere when the time comes, cheap tariff seem to equal cheap service. i guess you get what you pay for rather than what they promise

lancashire SSE  
I have a busy household who consume bandwidth like there is no tomorrow. We were with Virgin until last year, but were having problems with the twin boys' xbox gaming, as they were getting kicked off servers in the evenings. Virgin told us there was a faulty bit of kit attached to the same node of us, but they had NO WAY TO LOCATE IT. As soon as we could leave, We did. SSE were doing the fibre intro deals so I snapped up the 78Mb/s package.

It all started out quite well. Speeds seemed fast (I didnt obsess over it and benchmark it every day or anything) but over time the service has got slower and slower and slower. I'm writing this now at 9.08pm and I'm getting 0.59Mb/s on the download cycle, 0.11Mb/s on the upload cycle. We restart the BT fibre box and the shocking Technocolor router (the worst router in the world - official) a couple of times a week. Its still rubbish. Calling SSE broadband is a waste of time. Not once have I spoken with anyone who has any technical skills (I work in IT/networking and know what I'm talking about). The helplines seem to be staffed by young girls trained for sales. Think I'll give them a call tomorrow and tell them I'm cancelling my direct debit in protest at the rubbish broadband speeds I'm getting, see where that goes.

Oh, and dont bother calling them late at night or on a weekend. There is no one there.

Doncaster SSE  
Moved to SSE recently from BT, who kept adding things to my account I didn't ask for (i.e. BT Sport). I have never switched before, however, and was a little apprehensive about doing it.

I have gone from paying £200 a quarter to £87 for the same level of service (17mb unlimited broadband and anytime calls). SSE have also given me this for £5 a month for the first 6 months (including line rental!).

The speeds are also faster, as I have a new router, I suppose.

Thus, I am very impressed. Their energy prices are totally extortionate, but broadband is fantastic. Thanks, SSE.

17Mb Con - YOU WILL NEVER GET 17Mb or anywhere near it. SSE say 3.4 - 7 Mbs = 17Mb contract. With only 0.5Mb upload on top leads to an abismal service. PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THIS CON AND DO NOT USE SSE. SSE ARE DELIBERATELY ABUSING YOU

Having just paid £96 to exit my contract early, I can attest to the fact that SSE broadband is not fit for purpose. By their own admission, I've never managed to get more than 8mpbs and I live in inner city Birmingham, so I can only imagine what it's like if you live in a rural area. Uploading anything is impossible, streaming is woeful and trying to use Skype or facetime is completely futile. It is simply not fit for purpose. Don't waste your money, go elsewhere. This from somebody who's decided to pay an exit fee in order to be rid of this cheap, shoddy, laughable service.

Perth SSE  
I switched our home broadband and telephone service around a month ago, having checked this website out seeking guidance in finding a new broadband provider.
Maybe it's the luck of the draw or perhaps it depends upon where you live - I don't know, but I was in the first instance extremely concerned to read so many adverse reviews concerning SSE broadband on this website, particulary because I was interested in changing to their service because their charges are so reasonable.

However upon delving further into the matter I noticed that BT, our previous internet provider, who to be fair had provided us with a perfectly satisfactory iinternet service for the past eleven years had also received great numbers of bad reviews, so much so that I came away of the opinion that most reviews appeared to had been written by internet users who were harbouring all kinds of varying gripes against their broadband providers, and it seemed that subscribers who had actually received a satisfactory service had become complacent and did not trouble to submit any reviews anywhere which is a great shame as it does not allow readers to gain the benefit of their experiences and consequently miss out on any positive & constructive comments that might had been made regarding the numerous broadband service providers.

We wished to leave BT as they had become so expensive,and their price increases were becoming far too frequent for my liking .. .. .. .. However, as they say 'Nothing ventured - Nothing gained!!' so bearing all of what I've said in mind, I signed up with SSE purely on price considerations for their 'Up to 17mb Standard Broadband.'
I deliberately left a period of one month prior to submitting my review in order to permit my new broadband service to settle down, and to also allow a period of time for me to assess its capabilities prior to my submitting a review regarding SSE's service over a short period of time - be it good or bad.

Speaking as normal domestic users, (ie; surfing, emails, blogging, viewing webcams etc.) my wife and myself (the only users at home) are so far extremely pleased with SSE's service together with their most reasonable prices too. We are paying just £21.50 monthly (on an eighteen month contract} for broadband which also includes line rental as well as free 'anytime phone calls' also which is far less than what we were paying BT before we switched, in fact it's turned out to be well over 50% cheaper.

Our SSE telephone and broadband connection was made correctly on the changeover day of which we were advised of well beforehand (9th May 2017,) and the service since then has been most satisfactory, and the supplied router's wi-fi signal reaches all of the rooms in our two bedroom bungalow satisfactorily,which I found was quite simple to set up, and it works well.
We've had no problems at all with our SSE broadband at all, and the service is well suited to our needs - in fact we are pleased that we took many of the adverse reviews written here with a pinch of salt, and I'm able to say that we are absolutely delighted with SSE's service.

Thank you SSE for a good service at a reasonable price.

I moved from Immediately, which was a great service but became too expensive at £37 per month. I received the router and plugged it in the same as my Plusnet box through the openreach box. My speeds varied drastically and I wasn't at all happy. I found out I could miss out the openreach box and connect the fibre phoneline direct into the sse technicolour box by setting it up for VSL. Immediately saw a big improvement in speed and am now happier with SSE

We have had no internet service from SSE since 14 February 2020. Despite multiple calls, SSE has been unable to fix the fault.
They have said that SSE appointed Vodafone as their new phone and broadband provider in September, and all customers underwent a migration from BT/TalkTalk to Vodafone in recent weeks. The migration failed for the TalkTalk service. We were first told we were the only customers affected, then informed there were 40 customers in this situation. The latest we have been told is that about 2,000 customers are affected. We understand that SSE have a review meeting on 24 February to find a way out of this. Has anyone else got further information or been told differently?

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.

Awful service, Internet drops out numerous times throughout the day, at other times slows down for much picture quality when streaming is unwatchable. Customer service is absolutely terrible, spend such a ridiculous amount of time waiting to get through to an advisor on the phone we've given up and emailed, no response to emails at all though. Avoid at all costs, by far the worst broadband provider we have ever had the misfortune to deal with.
