“horrendous broadband ”

Written on: 13/01/2016 by 276Finch (1 review written)

I was with my previous provider for 20 years. They however became quite expensive. I carried out a fair bit of research and contacted pobraodband to discuss provision and reliability of their broadband. All sounded well so I went with them. I also paid a years line rental up front, so convinced was I that they would be OK. After all my last provider gave a flawless service on the same delivery system. I have made such a mistake. The broadband service from PO is shockingly poor. No connection… Read Full Review

“Useless...the worst ever encountered...keep away POST...”

Written on: 01/12/2015 by Bobbytester (1 review written)

Useless Post office telephones I have been waiting for almost 4 weeks for the Post office to connect my telephone service. Having spent almost 3 days on the phone to them and waiting in for them to connect our phone up, we are still without. Their customer service centre is useless. Unless you have a problem that works with their on screen prompts...dont bother ringing. No one is empowered to make a decision despite having spoken to a manager...I am still without telephone service… Read Full Review

“Absolute Rubbish ( It really is worse than dial up!).”

Written on: 04/10/2015 by Vogel211 (1 review written)

Stupidly, I let myself be drawn into using Post Office Broadband by what appeared to be a good offer. The issues I've had are as follows: * It doesn't work! It is so feeble that it is impossible to watch a film on Sky, impossible to upload photos (even a single one!), impossible to watch a music video on YouTube -all of these issues with just one device online! * Customer services reps are ride, ignorant, derogatory towards customers (I was called a liar when I rang to ask for help with the… Read Full Review

“Worse than dial-up”

Written on: 01/10/2015 by BarbaraPreston (1 review written)

The worse thing I have ever done is switch to post office for broadband. So slow and cannot connect in the evening at all. Have spoken to different departments all of whom were less than helpful, I was told to check the speed and to connect by wire but they hadn't sent sent the correct wire and 4 weeks later still waiting - contract only just started but thinking of paying so I will at least have access to the internet in the evening. If you are considering using post office broadband DON'T get… Read Full Review

“Since the post office moved to the talk talk network...”

Written on: 08/08/2015 by EthenEdmondson72 (1 review written)

I've been a post office customer for broadband for many many years and pre their switch to the talk talk network I had not a single issue or drop in speed with my broadband however only days after their switch in 2013 I noticed a significant drop in both connection and speed, I don't need the internet for much more than checking e-mails and light browsing etc so have stuck with them mainly for ease and not wanting to enter into yet another contract with a company which offers terrible… Read Full Review

“It's hard to imagine how they could be less competent”

Written on: 27/06/2015

Apart from Student Finance, the most incompetent company I have ever dealt with. Months of grief! As soon as my contract ends I'm off. They may be a little cheaper, but they make you pay in so much annoyance and wasted time. Avoid at all costs. Run!… Read Full Review

I sent Power of Attorney to take control of my mums card account as she has dementia and has had to leave her home. I also advised to now send all correspondence to my home address.

Two weeks later I got a letter that had been re directed from my mums address, they had actually… Read Full Review

“BIG mistake, switching to Post Office broadband”

Written on: 02/05/2015

Not having moved phone and broadband for a number of years, it honestly didn't occur to me that there would be a problem with ISPs these days providing a useful broadband speed. Let's face it the local networks are common hardware anyway, and it's frequently here where problems exist. NOT SO. I've just switched over from BT to Post Office telephone and broadband, as it was cheap for the options I need. No problems with the telephone at all. However I signed up for 'Premium' broadband, ie… Read Full Review

“Don't use the post office as your broadband provider”

Written on: 24/03/2015 by BrendanChaney (1 review written)

We have used the post office for several years but our broadband has never been very good - in the last few weeks it's been non existent and we are now in day ten of phone calls to the post office to resolve with no end in sight. They have no regard for their customers and clearly contract services out then blame everyone else. Tonight I was accused of shouting at them which I had not in anyway. Just do not use them as when you get a problem they will not provide any help in resolving it… Read Full Review

“worst broadband company ever”

Written on: 24/02/2015 by 179Taylor (1 review written)

I moved to the post office in September 2014 and I have had nothing but problems since. The speed is pathetic and intermittent, when contacting technical support it ranges from good to absolutely rude, unhelpful and quite ignorant, I do not think that the speed has been reliable for even one week at a time, I think that this is a poorly run and uncaring company and I will be moving as soon as I possibly can, roll on September… Read Full Review

“Poor broadband technical support”

Written on: 15/01/2015

Have been a customer for a few years. Phone service, facilities and costs are good. Broadband service was reasonable but several months ago broadband developed a fault and it took 3 routers and an engineer visit to resolve, service has been fragile ever since. Recently tried the wireless function for the first time with brand new Dell laptop, router constantly recycles itself and I lose all internet function until I turn off laptop and then it recovers. Laptop works fine elsewhere. Fault must… Read Full Review

“One of the worst decisions I ever made”

Written on: 14/09/2014 by Welshwoody (1 review written)

Had loads of problems with BT from January to mid April over none existant broadband download speeds (0.01 - 0.09Mb). Eventually they found a fault on cable, but I ended up being charge for excess broadband usage, when it was not working, in June. Being out of contract went to Post Office broadband - what a complete waste of time, space and certainly money. Switch over was 21/6/14 and day before (still on BT) watched Iplayer at 20.30 for total of an hour with no problems. The following evening… Read Full Review

“Avoid at all cost ”

Written on: 24/08/2014

Moved from BT to the Post office because it was a slightly cheaper option. What a huge mistake, you get what you pay for rings true with this lot. Depending on the time of the day the speed i can get can be less than 1mbps up to a maximum of 4mbps This can render broadband useless for many evenings (funnily enough) The 'technical team' at the post office describe that this is due to the location of my house but i am pretty sure my house stays in the same place all the time ! Never had these… Read Full Review
