Utterly useless. Worst internet provider I have ever experienced. And I use the term provider in the loosest sense of the term, as they provide very little. Signed up to 70mbps deal which promises a minimum of 40 at any time. Here’s what I get: download on Steam or blizzard servers, on an ethernet cable connected desktop, plugged directly to the router, 1mbps download speed. Absolute peak connection speed I have seen on anything, was on the PS4 speed test, max 3.5 Mbps. You can forget gaming with shell internet. I drop out completely at least once an hour. You can barely browse the internet. Forget online auctions, you wont stay connected long enough. What they are delivering isn’t even 5% of what was promised. Utter shambles. Do not use.

I would give no stars but I’m being nice. it has been fine for a few months but al of a sudden it’s started being really poor. If it’s not disconnecting then the upload and download speeds is disappearing. I use it for Xbox and there is hardly any devices connected yet I still lag? I’m not wasting money on something that isn’t even worth it.

Avoid at all costs… They advertise a super fast fibre and let you sign up to a 70 Mbps connection. In the sign up process they will show you an estimated range, which will we much lower than the 70 Mbps. In the end I only ever achieved 30 Mbps on good days, when the connection was working without any interruptions, which is rare. And is it any wonder that 30 Mbps is the absolute minimum the guarantee in their contract?

If you try to get in touch, be prepared to wait 30 min+ and telephone calls suddenly dropped. They answer to emails sometimes, but not always. Multiple of my emails asking for support remained unanswered.

And what a suprise, if you want to cancel as a result, they insist on the full amount to be paid. One of the worst Internet connections I ever had. Service level is at the absolute minimum. Hope they go bankrupt!
