“Origin moving me to there new supplier”

Written on: 19/09/2014 by peterhome1 (1 review written)

Been waiting 6 weeks now for Origin to re-connect me broadband. Its getting silly, all they do is blame BT. I don't care who is to blame, my contract is with Origin or who ever they now call themselves. I JUST WANT A BROADBANT CONNECTION. I just get fobbed off by there inefective opperators . NOT VERY HAPPY WOULD SUGGEST YOU USE A DIFFERANTE PROVIDER… Read Full Review

“Oh how the mighty has fallen”

Written on: 26/08/2014 by Jordonb319 (1 review written)

Having been an Origin customer for about a year, the honeymoon phase was great. Quick and easy sign up. Internet service was fast and the value was great. After the DR fiasco, I feel as though Origin is an entirely different ISP (just Google search for the forums regarding origin's DR response). I can no longer get through on the phone (people have tried for more than an hour with no luck), I have had no internet service and was not warned about the disconnection, no updates or replies were… Read Full Review

“What a difference a year makes...”

Written on: 11/07/2014 by adamvb (1 review written)

Used to be amazing and had decent reputation but recently have frittered it away. I recommended 6 other people to them from work and friends back in January-March 2013 after I moved to them, but in the past 6 months despite clear information from elsewhere about the closure of Digital Region they stayed almost silent and left it until July 2014 to start migrating people. As I write this review some users still have had no contact from Origin to let them know Digital Region closes on 14th August… Read Full Review

“From Talk Talk [The Pits] to Origin [The Cream]”

Written on: 22/08/2013 by DaveFentonUk (1 review written)

Having been with Pipex for 10+ years I was always satisfied even though it was relatively expensive. We switched phone providers to talk talk and so foolishly decided to switch broad brand as well since it came free with the phone. What a mistake, Talk Talk are RUBBISH! 2+ years of rubbish speeds, fall outs, no service, etc. Enter Origin. A friend of my son's recommended them. Never looked back. Their service from day 1 has been exceptional. They helped me get my line back from talk Talk and… Read Full Review

“Superfast Broadband but does it realy work or worth it???”

Written on: 03/04/2013

Worst broadband experience ever. Frequent disconnections since activation about 1.5months ago. The problem has not yet resolved appearently due to faulty routers. If you are considering streaming HD videos ON YOUR smart TV or other devices don't think that this ISP will resolve it. I was better off with my 7MB SKY connection than the connection which never worked even for 24Hours. In the middle of streaming/browsing the connection will drop, no devices will be shown attached to the router and… Read Full Review

We appreciate your comments, but without having a name or any details to look into, there's no way to investigate if you are in fact a customer of Origin's.

Please call us about your issues and we'll do everything we can to get them sorted for you. We service thousands of homes across South Yorkshire with speeds many times faster than the big ISPs can give, and we will be happy to fix your issues and do the same for you!

“Beats All Other Providers By Miles!”

Written on: 10/10/2012 by Ar5384 (1 review written)

Anyone whos had broadband and thought it was slow and not realy broadband has gone through the routine of switching providers with the hope that they will get a better service like they were promised. Ive been there, I am one of those who happens to be about 3 miles from the bt exchange so my broadband was realy poor, I had the benefit though of living in 2 locations in the same area, my flat was about 700 meters from the exchange but the other house was 3 miles from the exchange so, at one… Read Full Review

“Best Broadband company I've ever used. 60x faster than BT!”

Written on: 05/09/2012 by PeterMate (0 reviews written)

Like many others in South Yorkshire, I was suffering with a mainstream ISP on regular broadband. I got a flyer from these guys offering me fibre broadband, but didn't act on it for months - because BT and Virgin already told me I'd never get a faster speed where i live. i gave them a call just out of curiosity (as they're a local company) and when they told me I could get as much as 40 meg, i was sceptical, but I ordered, and on the go live date, I was amazed to see 37Mbps!! I've since… Read Full Review
