    They seem to be £10 cheaper than other companies however the reviews online seem almost unanimously bad.

    I am wondering whether to take a punt on them or not. I suppose £10 a month is not worth it if the service was terrible, which most reviews are saying it is and especially since I work online and need a reliable connection.

    if you call them even late at night expect at least a 1 hour wait and to be driven crazy by brian blesseds voice assuring you they will get to you and the same 4 songs driving you mental on repeat while on hold.Only the other evening i wa son hold for 4 hours.I ende dup taking my phone to asda with me , doing my shopping and then starting a night shift at work while waiting for customer support

    3 weeks after activation i still had no internet access

    sales reps lie about quality of router

    they delete any negative comments from social media accounts they have so you only see their praises

    if yo want a 5ghz router with a strong signal for wi-fi they wont explain to you until AFTER you have joined up and had your stuff installed that they want an extra £80 for a 5ghz router

    avoid like plague your better off paying the little bit more for better custome service and up to date technology elsewhere
