    Everything was ok a year ago now I’m getting less than 1gb
    When paying £60 a month never get a reply to my emails avoid this company like the plague didn’t think you could get worse than BT
    I’ve had to divert all my calls to my mobile as our internet phone isn’t working.
    As this is a Buisness line it’s my livelihood looks like they don’t give a ****.

    What on earth would I and my family do without WiSpire. Given where I live BT/Openreach infrastructure is SO poor that I was only getting about 2Mbps (if lucky). WiSpire's unique radiowave system gets me 10-11Mbps download and 1-1.5Mbps upload most of the time. In general the speed and service is consistent, however there have been some outages caused by severe weather. Even so, this company should be congratulated and admired for what it brings to us rural Internet infrastructure orphans. Hopefully their future outlook is also rosy following today's announcement that they have been acquired by InTouch Systems. I would love to see the speeds increase further (and remain at reasonably competitive rates). THANK YOU WiSpire.

    When it works download speed is up to 10mbps but it is very unreliable with speed dropping to 40kbps for much of the time. The worst thing is that despite many calls to WiSpire the service is actually deteriorating.

    We have an excellent product that does all we want it to. We have found Wispire staff to be easy to reach by phone and very helpful. We really like the fact that this company is Norfolk based, one of the reasons we chose to go with Wispire.

    Im not sure whether some of the negative reviewers actually have WiSpire. The customer service has been great; you can email the same person whenever you have problems and they are a Norfolk company.
    The only problem, that Wispire themselves acknowledge, is that speeds can slow down at times of peak demand and the impact of the weather.
    The latter WiSpire cannot do much about, despite being located on Church spires....perhaps God thinks that we all need to give up on the internet at times and do some real work.
    The speed is a bit random, but we can't have any landline broad band here so without Wispire I wouldn't have the internet at all.
    If the moaning minnies would like to bugger off back to BT etc then perhaps mine might speed up a bit even more..

    Truly the worst service. Unreliable connection, Customer 'care' utterly absent (emails ignored, calls not returned), I never would have believed that anyone could make BT look competent. Avoid like the plague.

    The broadband is unreliable, inconsistent and generally slow.
    Once in a while it is very good, HD quality but it is very infrequent.
    Customer services are only available during office hours and you have no way of finding out how much of your download allowance is left unless you call customer services
    I wouldn't recommend WiSpire unless they can improve the consistency of the supply

    Wow- amazing. This service has revolutionised our lives - three at university and in dire need of a reliable fast download capacity who have persevered for far too long with up to 2mbs service guarantee from BT. How BT are allowed to get away with advertising UP TO when it is impossible to actually provide never mind such awful service for so long is appalling - in reality we operated on 512 - 700 kbs....remember that! Thanks Wispire for coming along and ending our nightmare. Great customer service, cannot be faulted. AWESOME. THANK YOU!

    As everyone else says, the customer service is shocking for a service provider and not a broadband service that can be relied upon as it always go down for maintenance without any prior notification.

    When it works, it's fine. But I regularly have issues with speed. Speedtest can't even complete a test right now.

    Phone calls very very poor indeed.
    All my callers voice kept breaking up making the call inaudible.

    Very poor back up to say the least.
    Would certainly not recommend!!!!

    Since signing up to the service we have had incredible internet service for our location, we are on their 10mb package and whenever i have done a speed test it has never been below 10mb. the speeds are consistent and the only time it has ever gone down was a very heavy thunderstorm but this is to be expected with the type of service it is, cracking service great friendly support, cant recommend them enough!

    Brilliant company to work with. A really innovative local (church spire) wireless transmitting service reaching us poor internet served Openreach casualties. I have had the system installed for the past 6months (Max 10mbps) download speed that is consistently providing this speed. We have had a couple of hicups in service, where comms was dropped but overall very very pleased. Customer service and competency of staff is very good. Cost also not too bad. Just wishing they would uplift my service to 35mbps which is available to certain WiSpire customers (who connect to Cantly Sugar Beet chimney transmitters).

    When its working speed is very good compared to current alternatives, however the reliability is just unacceptable. Variance in signal speed and just completely dropping is infuriating when working from home or trying to watch a film.
