  • AshtonAmy Amy Ashton (@AshtonAmy) reported

    @OriginBroadband I'm really annoyed and disappointed my broadband was switched on Friday but still not working

  • Princessflexx Emma Tunney (@Princessflexx) reported

    @OriginBroadband this has to be the WORST broadband ever, cant get thru to customer service or live chat the emails bounce back and the internet shuts off from 10.30pm shockingly crap!!! 1/2

  • Schmell_DeCoffe Wake UP! and smell the Coffee (@Schmell_DeCoffe) reported

    @TimCr0wther @TalkTalk @OriginBroadband If you have already made the contract with Origin they read out a verbal agreement during the call that they will provide "x" speed service for "x" time period, if they are now saying they cannot do this then that verbal contract is null and void. Go back to TalkTalk.

    @heather_murfy @OriginBroadband Get away from #OriginalBrodbandUK this company, worst company ever! So glad I’ve left! They tried to say it was my line and I would get same problems on another ISP. I’ve never had a disconnection with #Plusnet

  • Schmell_DeCoffe Wake UP! and smell the Coffee (@Schmell_DeCoffe) reported

    @heather_murfy @OriginBroadband It's a good bet that they are not fixing your old one, but are provisioning you a service, basically setting you up with a brand new line, that's why it will take 14 days, that's the standard length of time to provision a new service.

  • heather_murfy Heather (@heather_murfy) reported

    @OriginBroadband Avoid this company! Internet was disconnected 10 days ago with no notice or explanation. Had to ring up customer services x7 times (each time waiting at least 30 mins to get through) to be told the fix will take another 14 days. You get what you pay for!

  • kearnsey75 paul kearns (@kearnsey75) reported

    @OriginBroadband Sorry I was never told on the telephone s conversation I had couldn’t get 5 ghz this has been going on since last July pls spare me the scripted rubbish service terrible apologies for the anger but I’ve been asking since then for a 5ghz router as never was explained about 2.4 ghz

  • kearnsey75 paul kearns (@kearnsey75) reported

    @paulwarrick3 @OriginBroadband Agree they lie about the router 2.4 ghz don’t give you the 5 ghz crap speed joke company I’m leaving ASAP

  • kearnsey75 paul kearns (@kearnsey75) reported

    @OriginBroadband Problem is you get a crap router your not told about 2.4 ghz instead of 5 that’s the problem permanently dropping speeds asked for the 5ghz router joke company constant lies

  • Chrome_Skull Brett Seedhouse (@Chrome_Skull) reported

    @OriginBroadband Are you experiencing high call volumes as i have been unable to contact the Business Support Line since 12:00 today. Just hung up as i'm now going out.

  • paulwarrick3 paul warrick (LUFC) (@paulwarrick3) reported

    @OriginBroadband That was a pointless PM & sent at 20.30 when you lot shut down. Please deal with this on twitter now

  • paulwarrick3 paul warrick (LUFC) (@paulwarrick3) reported

    @OriginBroadband Hi, I've been using fb messenger to ask questions but now they've stopped replying so lets chat openly. Your router is a piece of junk, 8 paces from the router & zero wifi. I'm told you supply a different router at a cost. Supply 1 that works or I'll cancel

  • Jncm__ . (@Jncm__) reported

    My WiFi have been acting up from the moment I got it set up, I’m even ashamed to offer it to people, might as well say I have no WiFi 😩 @OriginBroadband fix it!

  • naththursfield Nathan Thursfield (@naththursfield) reported

    @EllouiseH3 @OriginBroadband It’s shocking , the internet is shit

  • Beverle95810248 Beverley (@Beverle95810248) reported

    @OriginBroadband @EllouiseH3 I have changed my broadband provider to EE I was having the same problem with origin broadband there customer service is bad I sent email in which they never answered or the call I would never recommend these toanyone

  • naththursfield Nathan Thursfield (@naththursfield) reported

    @OriginBroadband @EllouiseH3 Same as always, my internet is shit Always going off winds me up

  • naththursfield Nathan Thursfield (@naththursfield) reported

    @OriginBroadband why is my internet so shit

  • EllouiseH3 Ellouise Hempstead (@EllouiseH3) reported

    @OriginBroadband internet is down again. Only 3months into contract. On hold for 25mins. No online response for that time either. Disgusting support.

  • supmikeyb Michael Barnard (@supmikeyb) reported

    @Schmell_DeCoffe @OriginBroadband Thanks @Schmell_DeCoffe ... I've just been asked if I am using a wireless connection... even though they can see the connection has been down 10 times in the past 24 hours. It's definitely not a wireless issue when the router fails to maintain a speedy connection :)

  • matthewbrookson Matthew Brookson (@matthewbrookson) reported

    @Schmell_DeCoffe @OriginBroadband I've dealt with customer services twice and they have been friendly and helpful, both via live chat and phone. Internet is working just as well as my previous provider. No issues here.

  • BearRowls liz (@BearRowls) reported

    Ffs 😡😡😡😡 everything that uses WiFi bar one TV is off and the internet speed is so slow, I can’t even get free view to load. I cannot wait to find a better, more responsive internet provider. DONT USE @OriginBroadband !!!!!! #originbroadband

  • howells1967 John Howells (@howells1967) reported

    @OriginBroadband It's February 2020 and still the service is still the same.

  • howells1967 John Howells (@howells1967) reported

    @OriginBroadband why is it your service keeps crashing, and when I contact you, I'm told its being looked into and someone will call... Rubbish customer service

  • error_no_entity ENOENT (@error_no_entity) reported

    @OriginBroadband my internet is down again. In 2 months I have had downtime of 3 days, 1 day and now estimated 5 days as an engineer is being called out. Absolutely terrible customer service, who are unhelpful and no reimbursement for downtime. AVOID ORIGIN!

  • JaseKoen Jase (@JaseKoen) reported

    @Schmell_DeCoffe @HowieMcConnell @TalkTalk @OriginBroadband Never had a single issue with Origen.

  • Schmell_DeCoffe Wake UP! and smell the Coffee (@Schmell_DeCoffe) reported

    @JaseKoen @HowieMcConnell @TalkTalk @OriginBroadband You do realise that if you go with @OriginBroadband you will have the exact same TalkTalk connection but it's leased to Origin, which means if you have any issues you contact Origin, they contact TalkTalk who then contact OpenReach .. if anything you will just make things worse.

  • JaseKoen Jase (@JaseKoen) reported

    @HowieMcConnell @TalkTalk @OriginBroadband Make a official complaint via #TalkTalk, they will not resolve it. After 8 weeks take the complaint to ombudsman. Worth the time.

  • JaseKoen Jase (@JaseKoen) reported

    @HowieMcConnell @TalkTalk No no, @TalkTalk is the worst. Had a horrible 9 month complaint with them. Very poor speed & service. Cancel now. Go with @OriginBroadband. No issues at all.

  • Schmell_DeCoffe Wake UP! and smell the Coffee (@Schmell_DeCoffe) reported

    @aaronisloan @OriginBroadband be sure to keep current and prospective future customers informed on how long it takes for your "service" provider to respond to, and act upon your complaint.

  • Schmell_DeCoffe Wake UP! and smell the Coffee (@Schmell_DeCoffe) reported

    @aaronisloan @OriginBroadband maybe their 24/7 technical support can help ....

  • aaronisloan Aaron Sloan (@aaronisloan) reported

    @OriginBroadband having constant outings of internet over the last week and it's beyond my patience tolerance tbh 😭 I was playing a game and it has gone down and been down for an hour now

  • BearRowls liz (@BearRowls) reported

    @OriginBroadband I was trying to get through on the phone. It’s been almost 30 minutes and the phone was answered and then put down. It’s been pure silence for 5 mins. I’m so annoyed.

  • BearRowls liz (@BearRowls) reported

    @OriginBroadband - WORST internet provider I have ever been with. BEWARE they have not signed up to #ofcoms speed code of practice so even though I’m getting a total 1mbps TOPS.. I can’t cancel without fee. Never ever again. #OriginBroadband

  • jonnywishbone99 jonathan (@jonnywishbone99) reported

    @OriginBroadband It should say customers of origin broadband may experience slow internet and random loss of service and a long wait on the phone to get fobbed off by customer services.

  • tinwix Atin Wickham (@tinwix) reported

    Watch out for @OriginBroadband. Their chippy customer service representatives will promise to call you back in 2 days (It's 12 days and counting). If you send them a complaint email it will also be ignored. Avoid avoid avoid..

  • Siddharta8416 Giuseppe Ardito (@Siddharta8416) reported

    @OriginBroadband I asked you to arrange a move of the service to a new address in 3 weeks and you have cancelled the connection at my current address by mistake leaving me without internet connection for 3 weeks!!! You have caused me a massive damage! Unbelievable

  • Schmell_DeCoffe Wake UP! and smell the Coffee (@Schmell_DeCoffe) reported

    @paulwhite369 @OriginBroadband The most annoying thing is that @OriginBroadband have your details on a seperate database where they log faults/issues, they could find your details with a simple name search, but will still drop the standard "send us a DM with your details message" creating even further delay.

  • wbutler89 Will Butler (@wbutler89) reported

    @ChrisElliott66 @SkyHelpTeam Switches to @OriginBroadband last year. No issues what so ever with them and really good CS

  • Schmell_DeCoffe Wake UP! and smell the Coffee (@Schmell_DeCoffe) reported

    @LiamBurge88 @OriginBroadband There hasn't been ANY 24 hour service on ANY of their inbound lines since they moved their base of operations from Doncaster almost 2 years ago, far better to try normal office hours although wait times of 60+ minutes are not unheard of, even longer for technical support.

  • LiamBurge88 Liam Burge (@LiamBurge88) reported

    @OriginBroadband unsure if weather is cause today, but website might need updated as no 24hr technical helpline today. Problems with router.

  • Schmell_DeCoffe Wake UP! and smell the Coffee (@Schmell_DeCoffe) reported

    @trashgxrl @OriginBroadband Unfortunately this is what happens when a company pays minimum wage, gives minimum training, has insufficient staff, uses internal software and systems that crash multiple times a day, and sells a product that is dogged with issues. These ingredients do not make for a good bake!

  • thetwigpenpeopl The Twig Pen People (@thetwigpenpeopl) reported

    @OriginBroadband You have knocked my internet off for a week ,told me someone canceled it by mistake. Then told me it was a fault and then told again it was canceled. Now my complaint has gone missing. Promised I would get answear from the Supervisors and you offered me £10

  • thetwigpenpeopl The Twig Pen People (@thetwigpenpeopl) reported

    @OriginBroadband You switched my Broadband off for a week. Lied about it lost my complaint and made promised and still done nothing!

  • TanyaMarajMT TanyaMaraj (@TanyaMarajMT) reported

    @OriginBroadband Yay! I’ve lost all my work because the WiFi went down. It’s been 3 hours now...

  • TanyaMarajMT TanyaMaraj (@TanyaMarajMT) reported

    @OriginBroadband My WiFi is down AGAIN....

  • SamKJay Samuel (@SamKJay) reported

    @OriginBroadband mint when you’ve been waiting 3 weeks for a engineer to set up and new line and they don’t turn up! Great way for a new customer

  • snickalous Nick Allen (@snickalous) reported

    @OriginBroadband And having tried to stick with you for a few years, despite the very slow averages speeds and appalling customer services. ( wait times on the phone were up to an hour) I have moved to @Plusnet Adios

  • vfachinetto Vinicius Fachinetto (@vfachinetto) reported from Poplar, England

    @OriginBroadband 30 minutes waiting on the line for technical support.... still waiting

  • Lorraine_Burman Lorraine (@Lorraine_Burman) reported

    @OriginBroadband Why on earth has you network gone down again. I've never known a network so bad!

  • cdanisi Christian Danisi (@cdanisi) reported

    @OriginBroadband No chance, I have been having issues since the beginning and it can only be fixed for a short-term. Check my messages and emails and you will see I have always complained about the service from the beginning. I am changing service provider. Thanks anyway.

  • giorich81 Gianni Old (@giorich81) reported

    @OriginBroadband I am pleased to announce that after 1.5 hours waiting for an answer on my slow internet, for which you charge me the Origin Max fee, nothing has been done so I have now logged it with the Ombudsman

  • JennyCyTUK Jenny (@JennyCyTUK) reported

    @OriginBroadband Now day 13 and still no internet, 4 hours waiting on chat for someone to call, same excuses every day in that the problem is being pushed back to supplier, no call back after 5 days from complaints dept, time to escalate this further now. Totally disgusted!!

  • Thechildofroth Roth Child (@Thechildofroth) reported

    @Schmell_DeCoffe @OriginBroadband TBF I've had pretty decent support from them in the past (slow but helpful I'd say) no news on this as yet and their website doesn't want to show me the live chat or even a number I can reach them on at the moment....

  • Schmell_DeCoffe Wake UP! and smell the Coffee (@Schmell_DeCoffe) reported

    @Thechildofroth @OriginBroadband You got it! ... Be sure to let others know how long it takes for your service provider to contact you to acknowledge the issue and offer a solution, it will serve as a good measure for others considering taking up their "service".

  • Schmell_DeCoffe Wake UP! and smell the Coffee (@Schmell_DeCoffe) reported

    @Thechildofroth @OriginBroadband Unfortunately your efforts are likely in vain, Origins use of Double NAT is the source of many woes. Getting a static IP from them may help ...

  • cdanisi Christian Danisi (@cdanisi) reported

    @OriginBroadband This is a joke indeed. Since I started using Origin have had issues with the internet and it is never fixed properly. Atm i I don't have internet for example...

  • aaronbolton_ Aaron Bolton (@aaronbolton_) reported

    @OriginBroadband I have used many ISPs of the year and Origin is truly the worst for customer service and quality of connection, their focus is building the company up in value at the cost of everything else. I am amazed they are still operating.
