"I refused their offer after I read their terms and conditions and I saw that they put a clause of fair usage which limits their Really aggressive "unlimited" broadband to 500gb of data per month. After that they start with really aggressive marketing, they called me 2 per day and they continue to pester me with unsolicited calls even after I told them to stop. Don't give them your number if you don't like aggressive marketing."

"A bit sneaky, they advertised an attractive deal so I called them to order.
The deal was broken down and in the end was not as good as advertised.
I still decided to proceed as the monthly cost was reasonable but the agent I dealt with decided to alter the contract and terms of business putting me out of pocket by month 12 of the 24 month contract. He also added a sneaky £1.49 monthly charge in on top which was not mentioned.
All in all
Free premium router - no £9.99 for a plug and go Jobby.
No set up cost - no £40 engineer fee and £35 activation fee.
£75.00 credit Appiled to your account on sign up - No they take this as part of the installation cost.
Upto 80mb for £26.95per month - no this is for the first 12 months then they snide a clause in the contract hoping you don’t notice so after 12 months you pay double.
Stay away people seem like con artists
I cancelled during my cooling off period because the agent was dis honest"
"Avoid signing up to bOnline, especially if you operate a business which I do. bOnline have the makings of an amateur outfit who not only give out incorrect information and seemingly have no idea what they're doing, but they're incapable of providing me with a consistent, stable fibre internet connection which either keeps dropping out or provides speeds more akin to a non-fibre internet connection. This is a far cry from my previous provider (Sky) and that was just for a domestic, home service unlike the business one which bOnline are providing me with.
On the other hand their staff are very polite and very good with regards to customer service but that's about it as all it does is mask inherent issues with their ability to provide a decent and reliable service. They don't even offer to amend my contract or offer compensation to acknowledge the fact I'm paying for a really poor service."
"I would use BT again before using this company... do yourself a favour and find a professional company.
During my contract i have been regularly lied too... (i.e. dont believe any free upgrades, you'll get the bill at the end of the period)
Want to dispute anything? Fine... they will say they will get back to you (and never do) whilst stopping all services.
Ringing their help support lines seems more painful than a anaesthetic free circumcision.
I have few regrets in life... but bOnline are most definitely one"
"I transferred from Plusnet this week and since transfer have had no internet or phone service. Totally unacceptable if you are trying to runs business. The only way to get through to customer service is to call “sales”. Customer support Is not business class. Before you buy from them, call the customer support to check - forget the friendly agents in sales!"
"Avoid this company like the plague. Ive had no service for over a year and its impossible to get any help when phoning up their customer services - because I keep getting cut off - on their own line!! Ive finally got through to the complaints department (and thats only because I put a 1 star review on trustpilot! - so if you want to at least talk to the complaints dept - you need to do this - its the only way through!) - and they are going to waive the exit fee??!!!......really??? ...but Ive since been with 'talk talk' and sky for over a year as I had no service from them at all. I couldnt even pay for anything from my bank account online, because I got cut off before I could get to the pay section!- as the connection was so bad. The phone line was crackly and I couldn't hear anyone who rang me. ...yet no problem at all with 'talk talk' or sky - and its the same line!! So - god knows what they do with the line! So - no broadband or phone line for over a year - and they are well aware of this - yet currently no refund or compensation, and now - the £16.99/m has gone up to £42/m - yet - service is still non existent and customer services or complaints department pointless. Shocking company. Save yourself grief and frustration - go elsewhere!"
"Well… We have had an awful experience with bOnline broadband service.
Every time we speck to someone in support we get the reply (you’re not get connected that why it’s not working). Its has been connected in the past and was working (not working correctly however). Then the response is that much me with your old provided. The problem with that is, it’s a new line and new location so there is no previous provider.
When we did get access to the internet and we ran speed test we got speeds of 2.9mps! we are on a fibre 80 contracted with guaranteed speeds of 50mps+. The service is nearly completely unusable.
We have called them several times and had so far zero progress. If the problem continues much longer we will treat this a breach of contract and move to a different provide.
My advice, look elsewhere."
"The service I received from Tasneem was completely outstanding. Professional, informative and knowledgeable in her role and a pleasure to speak to on the phone. Made me wish I knew her in person. Highly recommend using this lady and her services for consultation."
"It is online based which is the problem when you need help. I posted a question and two days later no reply. I called and both times I was on hold for 45 mins to be cut off. On a residential line you type a message to chat and get an answer at the same time. Pay a bit more and choose a company with a telephone helpdesk"
"After taking over the wrong line and leaving me with super slow internet for over a month they said I would not have any more issues. 3 months later bills are still incorrect, credits from January are still not issues. Was offered a £25 amazon gift card for my troubles - still not received.
I spoke to the customer relations manager at length and decided to stay with them - however I really regret that now."
"Where do I start. They have taken over £300 out of my account in one amount and have cost my business thousands in lost income. It took them over 2 months to get my line up and running.
Please go elsewhere. We have had this very bad experience so hopefully others do not have to.
A talk talk business, so be aware of that also."
"omg I have just read all most recent reviws and then was so surprised they are so bad. I had most aweful experience with this company and because never know they are so disguisting., miceal bratt who is a guy gives higher satisfactory promises and once he transfer us to provisitional team or customer services then agter he just dont take our calls or reply our messages.
most annoying is provisional team people call andrea or melisa they just talk sweetly with big false promises and you just listen to them sitting with your open street business for 2 month... such a disgusting behaviour. with this company I feel they are not enough experience to handle customer and they are in loss.
so they cant hire good engineers or people.
very very annoyed and agree with all other bad reviews they are true.
my advice is with all disguisting reviews they should stop taking more clients and work with
whoever they having customers in hand.
or close down."
"Where on earth do I start with the incompetence of this company!!! I honestly do not know how they are in business.
-Tried to charge me £125 for an engineer to come out to repair a fault on their line!
-Broadband constantly dropping out making it impossible to work. Had to invest in a Mi-Fi box and pay for a data sim every month to connect to, in order to cover the shortfall in service - just to make conference calls!!
-Forgot to send a router out the first time to connect the broadband. Had to wait another week AFTER the engineer came for it to arrive.
-Upgraded me to fibre for inconvenience over the past year after I called to cancel my account. Confirmed twice that the current router we had would accept fibre.......it didn't so engineer couldn't connect it. So again i'm waiting for the correct router to come out to me AFTER the engineer came to fit the line.
-Told me I would get fibre broadband for the same price as the standard broadband I was paying due to what can only be described as a horrific experience. Only to be charged £11 per month more than what i'm currently paying.
-Promised callbacks that never came.
The list is endless and the staff don't have a clue what they are talking about. Just had a callback from a staff member after a week of waiting and sending emails regarding a callback. Now awaiting call recordings to confirm they have mi sold and misrepped me over the phone!
I have seriously had nothing but problems with this company for the past year and after calling to cancel was surprised and pleased that they were offering to rectify my continued bad service by supplying fibre for the same price that I was currently paying. But an email confirmation a different price per month and a missing router after telling me the one I had was fine, obviously confirmed this company has not changed and don't know what they are doing!!!
PLEASE, IF YOUR A BUSINESS, GO SOMEWHERE WITH EVEN A SHRED OF PROFESSIONALISM - THIS COMPANY SUCKS! IT WILL SAVE YOU A LOT OF TIME MESSING ABOUT WITH PEOPLE WHO REALLY DO NOT HAVE THE FOGGIEST!"
"Guys - the truth is that this is a start up trying to make it in the world of big internet providers. What is means to you the regular user is that bonline is dependent on other's infrastructure and very likely internet speed is prioritized to other customers. I have had b-online for 1 year and had to cancel because the internet quality is simply awful."
