    Unfortunately, I havent a great experience with BT, along of my 10 years with the company I faced many Broadband issues, calling customer services and trying to reach an outcome for my issues. Recently I have as for a good deal trying to renew my contract with the company, however, the customer service didn't even consider 10 years I have been with the company and said they couldn't cover any other offer comparing prices with other broadband suppliers, very disappointed, unhappy, I feel that all that the company doesn't care about the clients it's all about profit. Sadly this company will lose more customers I don't recommend this company to anyone it is problems with the service also the company is not customer-oriented.

    I’ve had fibre for just over 18 months now. Started off well and was getting a good signal all around the house. Since the start of the year the signal is non existent and router reboots itself at least twice a day without fail. Paying over £45 a month for this service with a phone line is expensive for what it is. BT don’t want to know, they just try and sell you a more expensive expensive service, not sure they understand their current service doesn’t work so why would you pay more for another poor service. Have now cancelled my contract and gone to Virgin 1GB for £10 cheaper a month. Virgin also gave me £100 joining credit. Don’t waste your time with BT as it’s a tin pot service for a gold platted price.

    If I could give BT minus 10 , I would. I ditched them 20 years ago after moving house and had terrible trouble with them even then, poor service , poor reception etc. Since then, I met a new partner last year who had BT and was horrified that he could hardly get any reception. We complained, after 2 months of me shouting at BT , they finally fixed the problem for it to go wrong again 5 months later . They have ignored our complaint and after receiving a letter saying as their package was changing, we could leave. So we changed to Sky with supposedly 6 mths of BT left . Since then they have literally gas lighted and bullied us with conflicting emails and letters forcing us to pay £107 to leave despite earlier no charge info previously and are subtly threatening legal action. My partner is so stressed , he is paying but I will be contacting the Ombudsman about this . They are the most unethical company I have ever dealt with . Please do NOT sign with them, there are cheaper and better options out there

    I am appaled at BT and it's behaviour towards customers. I had returned my equipment which they confirmed receipt but the still insist on a charge of £30 for a dish that they claim that they sent me 5 years ago. Also after leaving, they took another direct debit which put my account in credit. I have been bannging my head agaist a wall with their useless customer service to return the money but they promise next week and next week and next week. An absolute disgrace.

    I became a BT customer as recommended by EE last year.
    I joined last year around mid December.
    Service has been ok till 8th June when there was a loss of service.
    I texted & had a SMS reply that broadband services were affected in my area & will resume on 9th June. I was ok with that. But no further communication came at end of 9th June so I texted & reply came that services will not resume until 14th June.
    Both me & my wife work from home. No internet means no work, no WiFi for children, no CCTV, no Netflix, no Disney.
    I can't tether data connection from my phone to laptop.
    Contacted BT after 25min wait in queue only to find customer rep was no use at all. I explained I have to travel 2 miles to parents house to use their Virgin WiFi. She offered me £40 compensation which was poor. My children have used most of data allowance in 2 days than they would in 1 month. BT only look at profits and not customer care.
    I asked for termination of contract they said only on grounds of 30days poor quality broadband. But the service is crap.

    Worst experience with a company in my life.

    Told on multiple occasions they would get my internet sorted. 5-6 times they messed up and it looks like I am 3-4 weeks without internet due to their incompetence.

    Also misled me on switching and couldn't claim compensation.

    An utter joke of a company.

    Very unreliable service, I need broadband to work from home but the service with BT has been very unreliable. The connection drops, and I've been without any connection for several long periods of time, the last time being for three weeks. I was told planning permission to work on the road was required, but when the engineer came he told me this was not the truth. This time it has been one week so far. BT were aware of the fault but told me no engineers could come out until after the Jubliee celebrations which I think is unacceptable. I've called BT multiple times and on various ocassions the customer service team have hung up on me. They've also tried to upsell to me as a "resolution" to the issue, but if the basic package does not work why would I pay more money for an unreliable service.

    The worst customer service, you can explain the situation a thousand times and get a brick wall of a response. The “unbreakable” internet we pay a fortune for consistently breaks or is unstable, and yet there is no compensation for this at all in the slightest. What a waste of money and so avoid this if you can.

    Broadband drops in and out as it pleases leaving you unable to do anything don’t even contemplate watching a tv program it won’t happen then expect a really long wait on the phone if they pick up at all ! To just be told well I can’t see a fault so if you want an engineer it’s at your own cost ! Worst customer service ever even though I can provide speediest of less than one mg apparently as that’s still getting internet it’s ok although it won’t load their homepage either
