      Hyperoptic

      Hyperoptic

      Hyperoptic offer high-speed Fibre-to-Premises broadband to a limited number of UK households.

      Recent reviews:

      • Took much longer for installation than expected, including a cancelled appointment. The fitters were lovely and cleaned up after themselves, and were very apologetic that they couldn't get me up and running because of a fault in the the original fitting of the fibre optic so a further engineer was needed to correct the fault. There was then confusion over the telephone connection and an increased charge. Not the best experience but everything is now working with no further problems.

        Overall Satisfaction: 6/10

      • Install was only to the nearest plug socket near the front door. Wireless signal cuts out intermittently. Ended up buying a cable to stop problem.

      italk

      Recent reviews:

      • I switched to italk for a cheaper deal and more reliability. They seem to be a decent firm. Easy to contact and they help you when needed.

        Overall Satisfaction: 8/10

      • At the start there were problems - the live date was supposed to be on the Wednesday but ended up being on Saturday. Sometimes slips out of signal. We have dealt with some nice customer service people, but the package we got to start with had to be down graded as the speed was not good enough. However, overall I am happy.

      John Lewis

      John Lewis

      Not just a department store, John Lewis also provides broadband using Plusnet’s network.

      Recent reviews:

      • Annoyingly the switch was delayed because they asked if I wanted to keep my number for a second time, when I'd already said the week before I didn't. As a result I ended up with extra charges from my old provider as I didn't leave in time.

        Overall Satisfaction: 8/10

      • Switch was quick, and very happy with customer service. I'm mostly happy I'm saving money although I definitely think the speed is worse than with my previous provider.

        Recent reviews:

        • The switch to NOW Broadband was simple to organise on their website and it was easy to arrange the required engineer visit. However, the allotted dates for engineer visits were further away than expected. Despite this, the speed of the broadband is fast and the connection is reliable. Overall, it is very good value for money. Although it took longer than expected, I am very pleased with the switch to NOW Broadband as it provides great broadband at a lower cost than competitors.

          Overall Satisfaction: 7/10

        • There was a bit of problem with connection as it took over 2 days to get connected but the engineer was helpful and NOW Broadband automatically gave compensation for this. The internet connection is a bit slow and have been down sometimes for a short while. Nice staff when contacting them. It said broadband needs some time to get stable so hopefully speed can improve later on.
