    Disgusting service from @bt_uk. Increase in prices, reduced content and not allowing customers to leave without extortionate charges. Would not recommend to anyone. @BTCare

    Bexxxxxx;; (@BeckyEvans3) reported from London Colney, England

    @BTCare The point is that we have been talking to your teams & the service has been bad. Maybe use your initiative by offering support & compensation on the phone to these people.

    It’s now 2 weeks to the day our wi-fi went down and we still only have intermittent wi-fi. Even when it’s on only max speed of 34. Very poor, waiting on a filter to arrive , just hope this fixes it #BT @BTCare

  • lorrainemking
    Lorraine King (@lorrainemking) reported from Brentford, England

    @pw_thunder @DannyJohnJules @BTCare Exactly. They are disgusting. They’ve failed to provide me with a service and now have the cheek to penalise me for no longer wanting to pay for a service they are not providing for me. You couldn’t make this shit up

  • Mini_Wald3
    Sarah Walder (@Mini_Wald3) reported from Hillingdon, England

    @BTCare anyone know why my wi-do isn’t working, all of a sudden dropped out and now it’s saying I have the wrong password for my wi-fi confused. #help

  • nickdowse
    Nick Dowse (@nickdowse) reported from Paddington, England

    @NB_2612 @BTCare I believe you’ve been given the incorrect info. I’ve just updated and after a period of it not working I now have BT WifiCall back

  • lorrainemking
    Lorraine King (@lorrainemking) reported from Brentford, England

    @Jacquistewart8 @BTCare Nope. I’ve successfully canceled my contract and switched back to @SkyUK. Their broadband might be slower but it’s reliable. In all the years I’ve been with them I’ve never had a problem.

  • craigjnash
    Craig Nash (@craigjnash) reported from Barnet, England

    @BTCare is it possible to have a consistent broadband service that doesn’t drop in and out regularly?

  • tinysuz
    ?Suzanne ⚒ COYI ⚒? (@tinysuz) reported from St Albans, England

    Well we were thrilled to get our wi-fi up and running on Friday but alas it just will not connect to our Samsung tv. Despite all the resolutions given by @BTCare the issue seems unsolvable. BT forums suggest Samsung TVs do not connect to hub 6

  • lorrainemking
    Lorraine King (@lorrainemking) reported from Brentford, England

    Bye bye @BTCare your service has been shockingly shit

  • lorrainemking
    Lorraine King (@lorrainemking) reported from Brentford, England

    So now @BTCare message me to say my broadband should be working after six days of no service and guess what? It’s not working. This crappy company is like an unwanted gift that keeps giving

  • tinysuz
    ?Suzanne ⚒ COYI ⚒? (@tinysuz) reported from St Albans, England

    @BTCare If we could get some idea of when it would help. You do not seem to understand just how important the internet is for us.

  • lorrainemking
    Lorraine King (@lorrainemking) reported from London, England

    @BTCare I tried but after a 15 minutes nothing was happening. Your shit service has been more than shocking. If you treat a new customer like this who is still within the 14-day cooling off period I dread to think how you treat those who are stuck in a contract.

  • lorrainemking
    Lorraine King (@lorrainemking) reported from London, England

    .@BTCare spoken to two different advisors. One said my broadband should be working now (it isn’t), the other said it won’t be working until Sept 22 which means I’ll be without broadband for five days. I was originally told 24 hours. Advisors clearly make things up. Shitty service

  • tinysuz
    ?Suzanne ⚒ COYI ⚒? (@tinysuz) reported from St Albans, England

    I think when I joked we would be lucky to have internet by Christmas, it was not such a joke after all. They say they will try to fix by this Friday. Why do I have no confidence this will actually happen? @BTCare

  • lorrainemking
    Lorraine King (@lorrainemking) reported from London, England

    @FlyMax1 @BTCare It’s been shit. I was told 24 hours now 24 hours later I’m told they don’t have a Scooby of when it will be fixed. That’s unacceptable

  • Captain_Deltic
    Roger Ford (@Captain_Deltic) reported from Welwyn Garden City, England

    @BTCare is there a problem at the Welwyn Garden City exchange? BTinternet keeps dropping out and is very slow. My business broadband account over a separate BT Phone line is even slower.

    Jamie Whiteway (@jamie_taulia) reported from Hammersmith, England

    @BTCare so my BT internet dropped out this morning and told by BT online support (through a very slow chat function) there is a fault in line outside property and will take up to 4 days for engineers to visit. Do you truly think this is quality customer service? #timetoswitch

  • Rachel_Moses_
    (((RachelMoses))) (@Rachel_Moses_) reported from London, England

    @BTCare I have recently had trouble with my Internet connections. So I have repeatedly been onto your site for help. Today an engineer came around to repair my connection and he left about 30 mins ago claiming the problem was solved. It has not been and my connection is 1/?

  • ThatNerdWill
    Will Harrison (@ThatNerdWill) reported from London, England

    Well done again @BTCare - another fine example of customer service excellence. Web chat unable to help gave me a phone number to call where I’ve been calling with no answer for 15+ minutes so far. Paying for 50mb broadband, receiving 2.6mb at best.

  • Ankit1910

    @adamstokes1992 @BTCare I’ve already told them they are in breach of GDPR. It doesn’t seem to register with them. I’ve had enough of their sheer incompetence. Been a BT customer for 28 years. That’s about to come to an abrupt end.

    @TheBoxingWriter @btsport Not a lot in it, I grant you, David. Fury out-thought Wlad, AJ outfought him - and showed extraordinary heart and nous. Intriguing mix of fights. But Tyson hasn’t had a proper row in nearly three years. Saturday was a spar. Panieta crude, slow, unambitious. Fury fit and fast.

    DM (@itsdanmoore_) reported from Welwyn Hatfield, England

    @BTCare Cool that's what I was after. What are my options if they refuse to cancel the cease order? I just can't have internet because someone who doesn't live at the property says I can't?

  • GohilAnish
    Anish Damji Gohil (@GohilAnish) reported from Ealing Broadway, England

    @BTCare @Ofcom @OmbudServices I did not receive a call back yesterday not at the promised time ie 9-11am nor till before 9pm a Month and the issue is still not resolved .. most incompetent #CustomerService is provided by #BT @BBCWatchdog BT is worst than #RogueTraders shown on your show

  • itsdanmoore_
    DM (@itsdanmoore_) reported from Welwyn Hatfield, England

    @BTCare The order is open but you were unable to take over the line because the previous tenants placed a cease order dated October 25th. Surely if the line is active I should get their service through it?

  • itsdanmoore_
    DM (@itsdanmoore_) reported from Welwyn Hatfield, England

    @BTCare Spoke to order management as soon as they opened. Previous tenants are keeping the line active until November despite my order. My router won't work because it's not suitable for fibre. Reckon you could send us a fibre router so I have some sort of service in the meantime?

  • GohilAnish
    Anish Damji Gohil (@GohilAnish) reported from Ealing Broadway, England

    @BTCare @Ofcom @OmbudServices even if I take your word and assume a call back before 9PM but If a callback that was promised between 9am-11am and its not happened till now ie 20.32 should I expect that to happen in next 28 min ??? whereas it has never happened in last one month to get this issue resolved

  • GohilAnish
    Anish Damji Gohil (@GohilAnish) reported from Ealing Broadway, England

    @BTCare Hi Rita - @Ofcom @OmbudServices failed promised call back again this is the case of worst customer experience ever... if any TV show like @BBCWatchdog wants me on their show for scoop against #BTGroup feel free to contact me

  • GohilAnish
    Anish Damji Gohil (@GohilAnish) reported from Ealing Broadway, England

    @BTCare @Ofcom @OmbudServices failed promised call back gain - that was predicted - I have messaged #BT my phone number and account details to know what is the final outcome - a month to resole a issue - this is what customers are paying for inflated price and poor service ...

    @BTCare @Ofcom @OmbudServices after spending 6 hours on 14th July followed by 3 hours a week after of my life over the phone to get this resolved and it still isnt so the supervisor clearly lied to me ... and #BT needs to fix this you have all the info from my 1st Private message so plz

  • GohilAnish
    Anish Damji Gohil (@GohilAnish) reported from Ealing Broadway, England

    @BTCare @Ofcom today I got a bill of £143... so the supervisor clearly lied over the phone on 14th July #OFCOM please help .. this is already causing me a lot of personal issues and financial trouble even though its #BT that is breaching contract by rising prices midway through the contact

    We asked. We also asked what compensation we could get. They ignored us. They also removed our access to FON, presumably so we couldn’t go online and bother them/tell everyone how monumentally awful @BTCare are. 11/12

  • Sansanvi91
    Emily Zaadstra (@Sansanvi91) reported

    @BTCare once again reorganised the installation, this time for 6th November and once again it was cancelled. So he called them again yesterday evening. They said the issue was that @Openreach didn’t know what kind of line they were putting in, and that 6/12

  • Sansanvi91
    Emily Zaadstra (@Sansanvi91) reported

    Installation had been cancelled. We rang to complain and reschedule. @BTCare said it was a problem with @OpenreachHelp and said they would ring to give us a new installation date. We gave them until Monday this week. They never rang. 3/12
