I've been with BT for two years now and am now free to go elsewhere. The router they've supplied is flaky (requires constant re-booting) and customer service is poor. Research of other providers such as Virgin and Talk Talk seems to reveal that they are even worse. Any recommendations?

For excellent customer service, try Zen Aug 6, 2012

Hi Lisa,

I've used Zen Internet for about 5 years. They consistently come top in reviews for customer service. When I first connected and had to speak to them a few times to arrange all the paperwork etc, I got through to the same UK-based customer service adviser the 3 times I called! Amazing!

Good luck!

Becky.

Had O2 for a few months Aug 6, 2012

No problems so far. Not had to touch the router, which couldn't be further in my house from my office, and I'm currently streaming the Olympics on two computersicon_smile.gif.

Always had very good quick support. Got offered a new router when had a little trouble updating the firmware on current one (4½ years old) for IPv6 (resolved problem with old router – new routers are already configured).

O2 Aug 6, 2012

Another vote for O2. Their customer service never let me down (not that I had to contact them often!) and the broadband speeds are good at very affordable prices.

This is what we have now. My significant other chose it and he loves it (he works in IT).

Thanks everyone Aug 6, 2012

Given us something to go on. Indeed Zen's customer service seems excellent. Be There doesn't work in this part of the country unfortunately. Also exploring O2.

Not Virgin. Never Virgin Aug 6, 2012

I can confirm that Virgin is absolutely terrible and not worth your time and money at all. Good luck finding something that works.
