Absolutely incredible customer service I could not recommend highly enough! I had to swap provider because of moving house and I’m so happy that I had too! To actually be able to speak to another human being when you have a query is …

I’m still on basic broadband (fibre has yet to reach my JB). Time will tell however so far so good after some teething problems. My go live date was delayed by approx. 1 week and a rebate has been promised. Since then the reception has been good and more stable than my previous provider.

Initially fine, but service very poor over the past few months, broadband unusable really due to extremely slow speed. When I moved to another provider, I got stung with a £19.50 early cancellation fee even though I was out of contract. …

Originally fine, but when I renewed, the girl inferred it may be better for me to pay for my calls rather than buying the package. Yeah, better for them! My bills rocketed. I got well and truly stuffed with bills almost double my monthly …

Very long waiting times to get through on phone. Uncooperative, inflexible customer service employees.
Will not deal on phone to anyone but customer holder, not even wife/ family/carer. Hard to get any progress with requests.

Really bad company, they sent me a text to asking me if the date was okay. I said no, they sent someone out anyway and want to charge me a fee for it. I also had a call with them where it cut off to tell them the same thing.

The quality and reliability of the product / service AND the quality of the customer service team at Direct Save Telecom are outstanding.
Both my Dad (94 years old) and myself have been with Direct Save for a long time. Great value for money too. Mia is super helpful and professional.

Multiple times I have been called by them asking for someone who is not me, and I’ve told them I don’t know who this person is. Was told my number had been removed from their systems and the calls keep on coming! For a telecom company to not be able to contact their customers, it says a lot about how incompetent they must be!

Quite possibly the worst broadband I have ever used. I changed as my previous broadband was lagging and very slow, I’d give anything to get that back. I’m not stuck in a year agreement with broadband that doesn’t even load let alone lag or buffer. This company is beyond a joke. I just wish I checked the reviews beforehand.
