“BT are awful”

Written on: 21/05/2015

Moved three weeks ago. Used to have Talk Talk but they don't cover where I now live so went with BT. Big mistake! They initially set up the contract, sent out Sim cards, ordered an engineer and sent the internet hub even before I had moved in ! They then sent out the internet hub to my old address after I had moved. When I finally got the hub it didn't work so they sent me another. That didn't work either and they eventually admitted there was a fault on the line so had to take another day… Read Full Review

My contract is up in about 5months I look forward to being bt free, poor service, poor quality. You will find you get to know all advisers in India before the contract ends.

Bt and sky big no for me

“liars and extornists.”

Written on: 18/05/2015 by SemajLaw77 (1 review written)

I'd been with BT for years and years, since, I think, 1991. I mostly stayed because I'd heard so many horror stories about other companies. Let's get one thing straight about BT, when they say their broadband is ' unlimited' it ISN'T! BEWARE THEY WILL CHARGE YOU THROUGH THE NOSE. Their customer service is absolutely appalling and a lot of it is out sourced to India. Anyway, I tried to sort out my broadband because with the phone I was paying over £130 a month. Through and error of theirs they… Read Full Review

“Appaling”

Written on: 14/05/2015 by PMWaterford (4 reviews written)

The customer service with these people is absolutely appalling. You are kept on hold for as long as possible then cut off. They say will call back but don't and when you call them back nobody has any record of the previous call. If you dispute their bill they just cut you off until you pay in full. Nightmare… Read Full Review

“Avoid BT at all costs”

Written on: 02/05/2015 by Munro103 (1 review written)

Wish I'd read these reviews before switching Looking for a better deal we switched to BT from Sky. What a mistake. First they mucked up our phone lines, getting calls from everywhere, but none to our number. We have been without broadband since the switchover. Speaking to umpteen different people, always having to repeat the problem again and again and keep getting the same two answers but never from the same person 1. Its an exchange fault - but they never fix it or 2. The routers broken -… Read Full Review

“Watch those contracts”

Written on: 04/04/2015 by hywel (25 reviews written)

OK this is where people go to vent their spleen at BT? OK, this is a slightly different approach. I actually think BT is basically a good company with good products and services but watch those contracts. Especially broadband. If you are taking a phone service and fibre optic broadband, you will be paying over £50 a month and you are contracted to keep paying them for 18 months, come what may. That means they are effectively invoicing you £900 and collecting each month whether you want to… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/02/2015 by RishiMcDaniel269 (1 review written)

BT's service is the worst I have ever experienced. I don't usually write reviews but I have to this time. They failed to provide me with my full order for BT infinity. Assuring me they would contact me regarding the order which never transpired. I spent approximately 3 hours on the phone to various departments and still no broadband. Finally they agreed to set up a new order, with an additional weeks wait for connection… Read Full Review

“Anyone Want a Home Hub”

Written on: 22/01/2015 by dave2951 (10 reviews written)

In November 2014 my contract required renewing with BT. This was agreed but also the Call Taker stated my internet showed a record of dropping and that the Hub2 I was using needed replacing with the new Hub4.I explained i had know problems with my internet apart from it being slow which was down to BT and their sub station being miles away. I was informed if I did not upgrade I would not receive any further support and that it would be a cost of £9 to deliver the Hub.On me telling him forget… Read Full Review

Today on a Saturday at 8am our one day for a snooze the phone rings BT Help desk from India. Wanted to know if my Hub3 was now working ok. Attempted to explain that I had received two Hub2s. I was told that was impossible as they do not use the Hub 2 anymore and they wanted the serial number. I explained that would be difficult as I had slung the Hub into my loft as I already had a Hub2. Is your internet working.? reply Yes, well we will now close the complaint. BRILLIANT.

“COMPLETE UTTER SHAMBLES”

Written on: 13/11/2014

I can't even give this no stars as 1 star is being to generous. I don't think they are worthy of 1. I took out a phone and broadband package back in the start of 2012 when I moved into my first brand new property where BT was the only provider I could go with in the area at the time. I took out an 18 month contract and also added BT Sport HD to my package which was free for the first year when it came out. At the end of July 2014 my contract was due to end so I cancelled all my services with… Read Full Review

“Theives”

Written on: 19/10/2014 by qdFitzsimmons405 (1 review written)

Title says it all. I lost phone and broadband service for 8 weeks and after 3 engineer visits it was finally fixed. Calling BT to presumably get refunded the £66 paid over this period where they failed to supply my service I was told under their policy all they could give was £15.88! Plain and simple theft. Also after nearly 18 months with BT, they still can't fix a fault from day one where dialling 150 gets me "welcome to SKY"! And not BT customer services. Steer well clear! Contract up… Read Full Review

“Can I give ZERO or NEGATIVE rating?”

Written on: 08/10/2014 by mikeaccent (2 reviews written)

My in-laws phone line went down on 16th September and it was duly reported to BT faults. Ever since then, trying to get answers out of BT is impossible. I've been trying for last week to get through to BT fault reporting both on the telephone and via their "chat" service to get an update on the line repair. They have never taken less than 45 minutes to answer their phone and on 2 out of the 5 occasions I eventually got to speak to a human voice, I couldn't understand a word they were saying due… Read Full Review

Update - got through on telephone to BT fault reporting who said it will be another week before repairs are complete and line fully operational again.

Also got through to chat service on BT website who told me line would be up and working by midnight tonight.

So there you go, BT must be liars as they both cannot be correct.

Received a call today from the complaints dept. who told me that fault will not be fixed this week as they are now waiting for permission from the local council to dig up the road. No definite date is now given as to why two 80 year old pensioners have to do without a telephone line in the 21st century

They also told me that my father in law cannot claim compensation for this episode until repairs are carried out. They also refused to transfer incoming calls to his mobile as I requested as I am not the account holder. They hide behind the Data Protection act yet they have all his details.

BT, you are a bloody disgrace to your customers. Can you change the title of your TOTALLT INEPT NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE BT Customer Care dept. to BT DONT CARE?

Do BT ever read any of these complaints?

I even found that the Chat line lets you type your question then tells you you have used too many words.

Congratulations BT, your inability to provide a working phone line almost cost my mother in law her life last night. My father in law had to go and ask a neighbour to call an ambulance as my mother in law was having a stroke and has now been hospitalised.

If my in laws had a working phone line, the ambulance call would have been made much quicker resulting in the paramedics arriving sooner.

You are a bunch of heartless bar stewards who are totally incompetent and inept at providing a working service.

I have been with BT for many years and up until the past 2 years everything has been fine, now however they are adding on extra,s and charging for these EVEN if you only enquire about something you will find the cost of it added on to your bill as they will take it as an order. When you go on to BT to complain ABOUT THEIR MISTAKE they can hardly understand what your saying due to being foreigners so they just tell you a load of lies this company has went VERY much down hill and I will be… Read Full Review

“Never Ever Again!”

Written on: 23/09/2014 by jekel (1 review written)

I have had such a terrible experience with BT that I am thinking of legal action. These sharks are legal and I can't believe they can carry on making people miserable. I signed up in December last year 2013, and a couple months later I was disconnected. They unbelievably could not find my account details and wanted me to start a new account which cost over £20, telling me it was the only way. I spent hours on the phone in total to straighten the problem out, even sending a bank statement with… Read Full Review

“Appalling way to treat a customer.”

Written on: 29/08/2014 by GB27 (1 review written)

I recently ordered BT internet and as I didn't have a phone line they were installing one for me too. I then choose a day for this to be installed - Friday 22nd August with a 1pm to 6pm slot. I took the afternoon off work that day and the engineer turned up within the slot. After about 30 minutes he knocked my door again and told me he was unable to do the job and would send one of his colleagues round later. I waited in all afternoon and no one turned up. I got back in touch with BT and they… Read Full Review

Just to add further to this, BT rang me the following day asking why I had cancelled my order. After I explained the situation they told me I may be able to claim compensation for my loss of wages and would I be interested in going ahead with the deal.
I told them I needed to chat with my wife who at the time was away on business and wouldn't be back until Sunday evening. They arranged to ring me on the Monday (today) at 4pm to ask what my decision was. Its now 5:30pm and I haven't heard off them. Think I'll give them a miss.
