    I have never got the speed which is shown as the minimum. When they send someone out to look at issues no one ever seems to come. The customer services are closed more than they are open despite a 24/7 service stated on support pages.

    Just go somewhere else!

    Shocking. So disappointed. Thought it being a John Lewis product we would get a great service, quite the opposite. Never had such a terrible experience. Signed with Talk Talk and they were efficient and cheaper!

    taken money, no broadband and impossible to get money back! absolutely appalling. they got all my details wrong despite many repetitions(other than my card details funnily enough) took money out of my account, no communication from them as they took down wrong email , name etc....... ??? essentially stole £29 of my money , i cancelled when they were unable to fix my name, email etc on the account. they also promised switch over would happen on weekend then this wasn't possible( they just said what we wanted to hear so they could get a sale) don't be fooled by the British call centres since the people do not want to help and are very difficult to communicate with! I have made 10 phone calls over the last 2 weeks in an attempt to get through to someone with a brain cell who can help me. i'm polite on the phone to them but it is really frustrating they come up with all sorts of excuses as to why they can't refund (no access to a system until after 5 pm? they can only refund with a cheque but need authorized by a very senior person who is never available) Many of the call centre staff do not have a good grasp of english and have no desire to help customers. they'll promise a call back from a manager but then they never call back... one manager did call eventually but said he couldn't access the system and promised to call back .... i doubt i'll get my money back - ive heard some people have to wait weeks. thiefs. if a person walked into John lewis and shoplifted they'd get done. Why is it ok to nick people's money John scammy lewis?

    Until last Monday I would have scored 3 or 4 stars for most categories, but since then our speed has dwindled to nearly nothing for no apparent reason. Several calls to the helpline have not offered any hope of improvement, the answer seems to be "do not ring us again for 2-3 days until it settles down"... We have reached the end of this particular road and just signed up with BT. Disappointed/disgusted.

    I changed to John Lewis on 7 April. No broadband after 4 days, so I cancelled the contract. I was told this will cost me £80 cancellation fee.

    Please avoid. Drops out continually. Appalling customer service including being given the wrong information. No parental controls.

    Generally fine. However, I've just discovered I've been on maximum rate for a year and they have only just told me. I am extremely disappointed as I only chose John Lewis in the evidently misplaced hope, that they would treat their customers fairly.
