Product Type: Plusnet in Telecommunications Services
Newest Review: ... excuses, "could be slow sites", "could be wireless connection", "could be large works nearby pulling on your connection". All these were present when I was on O2 with none of the problems I am now experiencing. Plusnet's own speedtest has a permanent notice at the top stating "we are experiencing faults which we hope to clear soon". If you quote speedtest results to them with readings from this site they say "these are unreliable", this notice has been on for over a month and is simply an excuse for them to use. I can only say if anyone is looking for reliable broadband, FORGET PLUSNET.... more

After being with O2 for years with no problems, decided to move because O2 selling off broadband. Joined Plusnet five weeks ago, after three days told line had settled now getting 6.2 meg.

Plusnet messed up migration as couldn't raise actual problem with Openreach properly. This meant someone else had access to my number and voicemail and I had someone elses number! Took 6 days and 4 engineer visits to to solve as Plusnet raised it as a crossed line rather than an exchange error.

I found the complaints department useless and unhelpful. They didn't read my complaint properly, they lied (and didn't care when pointed out), were patronising and dismissive of problems raised and said my only ... Read the complete review

Been with PLUSNET 3 weeks now: 1. the broadband continually drops, when it is working it's slow: 10 or so drops in an hour so you give up! 2. customer service tried to blame a DELL laptop: service drops on phone(non dell!!) and HP (non Dell!): still advised DELL have issues and its not them: I've never heard such rubbish 3. they are now blaming the BT line: I have called BT - they have checked the line and say its fine. 4. they have various charges for leaving a "service" which has never been fit for purpose see below: I am still waiting to hear if any of the line rental paid up fron is ...

I have been a Plusnet customer for 20 months & although connection integrity has recently deteriorated dramatically my experience over all as been positive. That is until 2 weeks ago whe I tried to cancel their service due to moving house. The customer service advisor tried very aggresively to sell me Plusnet at my new address despite me being too far down the line with TalkTalk to change. When he failed to retain my custom he then demanded a payment of £25 to cancel & when I questioned this threatened to put me in the hands of debt recovery I am now in the hands of debt recovery & in the process of trying obtain from Plusnet a copy of the terms & ...
