“ Disgusting Sales”

Written on: 31/07/2015 by Sinclair150 (1 review written)

I was approached by Unicom last year with the promise of a great service and savings on what I was paying to my supplier at the time. I agreed to sign up with Unicom as I believed I was going to receive cheaper prices with them. However after doing a bit of homework discovered that their prices were going to work out a lot more than what I was already paying. I was told by them that I would be able to keep the Broadband with my supplier and have the phone with them, this turned out not to be… Read Full Review

“Nuisance calls.”

Written on: 30/07/2015 by Brownil405 (1 review written)

Have to be one of the most insidious of all the cold calls we get. Incapable of removing your details from their database and use a 3rd party call centre to screen themselves from the inevitable complaints they would get if they released their number… Read Full Review

I'm so angry that I got talked into moving away from BT. The only reason we did was because we were promised cheaper everything, but in actual fact the move has cost us a fortune which we can never get back, and the service has been shocking I can't find words to describe it.

they are a shocking company who I would never recommend to anybody 0 out of 10 for everything. they still keep phoning us to take out gas and electricity with them I don't think so Unicom you are a complete joke. they will continue to pester you with phone calls even when you ask them to stop. so I wish you good luck with them as they are the worst company I have ever dealt with.

“please do not use unicom”

Written on: 28/04/2015 by kath1965 (1 review written)

Please do not use this company. They promise you great deals, but once you have accepted them they do not want to know if you have any problems. If you are a small business they will make you pay. As a small business we thought what a good deal. We were promised if we went with them, they would pay are cancellation fee to another company, this never happened. I was told we would get our deal at half price as I could have got it cheaper for installation from another company, this to never… Read Full Review

I signed up to Unicom on the 7th Jan 2015 - The transfer hand over for phone and Broadband was due for 27th Jan, did not get Broadband until almost 3 weeks later...Caused major problems for Business and my customers. The first bill has arrived 3 times higher then agreed at meeting with Rep. Have no back up of agreement as rep told me forms we standard and items on it did not relate to me. I did get him to manually change the top copy of the form which he took. Now trying to get a copy of that… Read Full Review

“Nearly two years now and still sending Unlawful threats.”

Written on: 10/03/2015 by Lighthouseat25 (2 reviews written)

To cut a long story short. Signed up to Unicom with promises of better and cheaper service. Realised after homework i had been misled and tried to cancel within the cooling of period. I was right, first bill was a staggering 60% more expensive. Ended up being with them for 6 weeks, but was lucky, managed to escape with no disruption to my business phone lines, unlike others, but was hit with huge cancellation fees and threats of court. Please consider other suppliers before entertaining this… Read Full Review

“Avoid.”

Written on: 03/03/2015 by Unicon. (1 review written)

From day one there were problems, but once you sign - forget about customer service. They promised me a wireless router - it didn't arrive, but when I chased up no-one wanted to know. Initially all went well with the lines, then one-day the featurelines we signed up to stopped working. Customer service tell (12 months in) that they never offered the service, that it was impossible that they had been working. Would I like to pay them a lot of money for a system that would work? Not -really… Read Full Review

“WORST EVER”

Written on: 29/12/2014 by 337Barnes (1 review written)

The WORST Telecoms company I ever dealt with. Biggest mistake ever!!! From high termination fees to rude customer service agents. They were, in my opinion, unprofessional in every aspect. No out of hours service. I think they should be shut down. Will definitely take them to court in a few days time. There is not even one good thing I can say about them. I will fight this to the end!!… Read Full Review

Don't panic there is lots of help out there! Search Google for Unicom-Complaints and look for the uk address and you will find a very useful usergroup that can help contact them and they will help with ideas on where to go next.

How long is remaining on your Contract?

I have not heard to date of Unicom taking anyone to Court, however they do send out incomplete Court Summons with the intention of bullying you into complying with their demands.

Written on: 19/12/2014

The length of contract is a real bone of contention with me and even when questioned they state that they only do 3 year contracts! I thought that under the guidelines laid down by Ofcom that they had to be able to offer a 1 year alternative to consumers and small businesses. Unicom don't believe this applies to them. They will also tell you verbally that if you cease to trade during the contract period that there are "No Termination Fees" however they then mumble "We will just continue to INVOICE"; really how can that be a Fair Contract term?

Written on: 04/11/2014 by Karissaj375 (1 review written)

Keep well away from unicom! They are unprofessional, only there to take as much money from you as they possibly can by trying to make you believe you owe them, if you owed them money why do they change the balance everytime you phoned them? Exactly! I suezed trade with my business and they wanted proof, they also said it was going to cost me £700 to leave but then said they would let me off if I just paid £300,so if there company was ligit then why do they make up there own mind on how much… Read Full Review

John Healey MP raised an Adjournment Debate in Parliament about Unicom Telecom on Wed 26th Nov 2014 naming them as a ‘predatory company that was ripping off an elderly vulnerable constituent for £3,500 in termination fees’. Mr Healey also criticised the Ombudsman Services for failing to protect his constituent. In less than 48 hours, Unicom had released the customer from the contract and waived all the termination fees. Links can be found by typing ‘Unicom John Healey MP’ in any search engine.

I have heard of quite a few people who have had their problems with Unicom resolved after they contacted their MPs and if all else has failed, this could be a way forward

“Merciless ”

Written on: 26/10/2014 by geckogirl27 (4 reviews written)

My experience with this awful company was one of the most stressful things I have ever been through. I was with another company, that Unicom bought out, making me a Unicom customer overnight, without my consent, or choice. I was told in a simple "welcome" letter that I now had to adhere to THEIR terms and conditions, not those of the company I signed up with. I was never issued these terms and my prices went up over 50% with NO warning !! I gave 30 days to leave, then was given a hefty £400… Read Full Review

“I think they are pushy and nasty - AVOID!!”

Written on: 22/10/2014 by Rowane282 (1 review written)

After being badgered by this company for months, I decided to relent and talk to them about their offer. They try to talk over you, try to make you second guess yourself and are pushy to the point of harassment. When I told the sales representative that I was tired of him talking over me and pressuring me, and I'd rather have a number to call them for when I'd done all my research he told me "not to bother as he didn't want to be a nuisance" in such a cocky tone - well little does he know I'm… Read Full Review

I should have known better than to go with this company again! They messed up my broadband for months after transferring to them from B.T. True they are cheaper as far as billing is concerned but the business lost during the issues during their simple and seamless transfer cost us thousands in lost sales. One of their sales women recently contacted me regarding reducing my mobile phone costs and offered an attractive sim card only deal using my own mobile phone. She advised me that this would… Read Full Review

“3 years of harassment from Unicom (Sunstone)”

Written on: 10/09/2014 by Wagnerrk493 (1 review written)

One star flatters this awful company. They are unbelievably bad. In fact nasty. I’ve been harassed by Sunstone, and in the new name, Unicom, for 3 years. In the early days, they waged an unrelenting campaign of harassment by phone calls and emails. I received hundreds of calls from them, up to 3 of four times a day and they liked to pick inconvenient times like 6 PM on Friday to try and disturb your weekend. There were threatening letters, fake court papers - you name it, they sent it… Read Full Review
