    Absolutely the worst broadband we have ever had. Keeps disconnecting for no reason and loading takes forever. Customer service is absolutely useless, cant even solve the problem. Had a new router sent to twice now and the problem still occurs every day. Avoid at all costs.

    Moved to Now Broadband a few weeks ago after having terrible service for 18 months from a different provider.
    The transfer was faultless. Router is lovely and quiet (unlike the one from previous provider). More importantly, our broadband connection never drops out, the speeds are good and it copes with our multiple devices.We are loving this service and it has made us realise how poor it was from our previous (big name) provider.

    Ordered their broadband and phone service several weeks ago and given a date for telephone and broadband to go live. Had already cancelled my previous internet provider 4 weeks earlier. On the day my services were due to go live - nothing. No broadband and no phone line. As I had not received any communications from them informing me of any problems with the installation date, I was told that there was a problem with Openreach and that I would not be getting my phone and broadband service and that I had to ring their Sales team and place a new order. I was left with no phone and internet service for several weeks and had to go back and re-subscribe with my previous internet service provider. Don't waste your time with this company's very poor service. They are unprofessional, unreliable, poor communicators, and very much 'second rate' They also have not returned the £5 router fee that I paid them in advance = maladministration.

    I joined 1st July & am still waiting. I had 9 Open Reach engineers who kept coming to install inside, but there was a connection error so needed a dig outside to make my line Live. Plus 1st engineer signed the job as 'Done' hence my phone stopped and I was charged for 1st month though I not only had Nothing at all but they also lost the phone number I've had 50yrs! The NOW team told me "if you leave & rejoin we can change the Open Reach order" ... They lied! I left but they wouldnt let me rejoin due to 'Not having a live line'"?!! Talk about catch 22...You can't talk to Open Reach direct... You have to go via your provider... But I don't have a provider anymore!! Lack of communication with Open Reach and easiest way of getting rid of problem was by telling me to leave. I have had the fix outside but there is now another fault lower down the street but that won't get fixed cos I don't have a provider. No provider will take me on as "I don't have a Live line" I want to scream now. Both NOW & Open Reach are to blame... Ombudsman here I come!! Newspapers too!!

    Terrible service. After 6 weeks we still haven't got broadband even though open reach had the line connected straight away. I've spoken to numerous people on the phone and it was only the last person I spoke to who spotted the problem. I can only assume the other are either badly trained or just incompetent. I cancelled and have now signed up with Virgin. Absolute waste of time, wouldn't go near them as a broadband provider

    NOW TV failed to turn up to install the Broadband, only to let me know they would not make the appointment after the appointment time.

    I have since cancelled the order, but I am now struggling to get a refund. Initially I was told they could not refund my credit and and had to send a cheque, which has never arrived. All of my follow up Emails have been ignored.

    I have now had to get the credit card company involved, to process the refund.

    avoid them, I was scammed by over £200, very poor customer service and their telephony staff yelled at me at two ocassions. I booked a broadband installation with NowTV, waited for a month, engineers came over and said that there is no line they can use so they can't connect and advised to get different provider i.e virgin, as there was virgin line. They assured me that I don't need to do anything and they will let billings team now and my account will be cancelled and installation fee refunded. They never cancelled my account and kept charging my card every month without any authorisation, I've cancelled direct debit straight away and they still kept charging my card, becauise they had card details. I've called to log a complaint, telephony guy said that their company has no complaints department whatsoever so it's impossible. I asked him why their website has whole complaints page and ability to log a written complaint? They said i'm making this up as they don't deal with complaints at all.. Assured me that broadband is cancelled. TWo months later I am still being charged.. No standing orders or direct debit, they are making unauthorised charges to my card directly because they have the details.. I have logged a complaint on their website, it promised 3 weeks response-resolution. 2 months later, no response. I called their telephony to cancel again, just to get yelled at by a girl, saying that i should stop making up the complaint story, as they dont have complaints team and there is nowhere to log a complaint, and that my services are fully active lol

    Worst company ever, avoid! Seems like if you get any issues they will never resolve them.

    My wifi didn't go on fir the first day when it was supposed to go on so i called the customer service and they quickly pass me on to relevant team and send an engineer in a day. The engineer work very hard for hours to fix the problem and in the end he manages to produce a very satisfying result.
