    Absolutely shocking. Don't waste your time or money. After over two months of trying to get Now Broadband set up I have given up. In total I was given 9 different instalation dates, the only one of these which wasn't cancelled, moved or just didn't get booked correctly I sat at home all day and the engineer didn't turn up. They seemed absolutely incapable of booking an appointment for me, I would be told I had a date then 2 days later they would ring me and ask for three dates, invariably about a week after my original date, then they would say the first one hadn't gone through. After hearing 'I can only apologise' for the 100th time I realised that was literally all they could do and gave up.

    I am not even connected to now Broadband yet and they can't explain why the order is not being completed,I ordered on the 8th of july 2021 and they took over my line on the 26th but i still have no hub or start date, when i tried to cancel the order they said they need 72 hours and have to pass it over to a manager to confirm the cancellation??? This is a worse company than Italk avoid at all cost.

    ***AVOID AVOID AVOID*** after waiting over a month with no updates, the company eventually told me that the order had been cancelled by mistake. They said I had to re-apply....(Not Likely). The staff are all on a work experience from a primary school. they are thick, rude, unprofessional, non empathetic, and totally useless. (They all seem to be based in Ireland! Make of that what you wish.) They quote data protection, and won't tell you who they are, they really don't understand life because they have no life experience. Pay peanuts, get monkeys!The negative feedback and comments on this site tell the truth. In fact they will not be around soon they are so bad, Virgin is much better, are they are also useless so YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. ***AVOID AVOID AVOID***

    OMG....Do not waste your time with these cowboys. Waited over 1 month for connection, then they cancelled order due to a technical error. More like a thick member of their team from Northern Ireland who refused to give their name or team due to data protection. This was not a data protection issue, just rudeness and thickness from the thick female. Believe me these cowboys won't be in the broadband business for much longer. They are rubbish, even Virgin are better, are they are really bad !. Eventually they terminated the call because they had no where else to go......YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

    Absolutely awful been waiting for broadband for two months and I’ve had several issues with open reach engineer which always comes down to bad communication from nowtv side! Avoid at all costs it isn’t worth it. Pay a bit more and go for someone reputable

    Absolute RUBBISH! COMPLETE RIP-OFF. The past half a year it's been dreadful. Keeps dropping and disconnecting over 20 times a day even though it's only being used on a single device at a time to just do general light browsing. Last time I did a speed check the download speed was 2.62 and the upload speed was 0.48! For approx £20 a month that is the biggest ripoff! Honestly do not bother. Thankfully, it was only a 12 month contract and I'll be switching to a different provider by the end of this month.

    I had standard broadband and ordered an upgrade to fibre. The transfer date was postponed at least twice over a week or so, then on the final date I was told I would be transferred to Broadband, Now cut off my existing Broadband and didn't set up my fibre. I called to query and was told there was a fault on my line. However, they weren't sure why they cut off my broadband. Having googled this, it's sharp practice which they use to avoid paying Openreach for 2 open lines -even if they can't fulfil their contract. I've since made numerous calls and have been told the Openreach were instructed on Saturday..it's now Wednesday. Apparently, they may contact me today or tomorrow to tell me that it might take a further 2 or 3 days to get an engineer out. My wife and I work at home and rely on the internet. Nobody at Now will chase Openreach or have any idea what is happening. It's a complete joke and I think fraudulent behaviour.

    It's terrible. Just switched to Now broadband and it's absolutely awful. Really annoyed. Was with TalkTalk, which was great. Now is the absolute pits. Avoid at all costs.
