    Broadband was fine with good broadband speed. 8 Months into the contract and in the middle of the Corona lockdown they cut of my service without any warning, phonecall or email. Customer services were then entirely uninterested in helping me get set back up. Would not recommend and am now with an alternative provider.

    Terrible company, just fob you off on the phone and never reply to emails.
    2 months waiting for activation date and terminated my old Vodafone service leaving me without broadband for 2 weeks.
    Took money for 1st months service despite not even letting me know when I will be activated.
    Was finally given activation date and was told by email to make sure someone is home to recieve bt engineer or will incur £120 fine. Guess what? They never showed so waited in all day for nothing. And when I called them was told we dont know why you were sent that email? Absolutely terrible company.

    Joined onestream at the beginning of June 2018, contract was up for renewal this month so i signed up for 36mps at £23.99 a month. Just recieved my first bill, £34.99, and when checking thier website its now listed as 34.99. Customer service doesnt exist, lost my first router in the post (hermes). Only plus was good reliable speed. I'm now attempting to get out of this new contract which i did'nt sign for and can't afford.

    Faultless transition from Vodafone but no communication via email wont answer the phone, the broadband is ok but the router is rubbish so terrible wifi now in the house, seems to have a password on the router so I cannot copy the profile and use a better one. To say the router is 'super duper' is a lie it's the cheapest one availible. Shame on you. Especially charging 9.99 for it probably cost less than that.

    I have not had problems with the speed or reliability of the connection with OneStream, however, I was unable to use my Chromecast with it, I was paying 3 times the price of what I thought I would be paying but the worst was when I received a letter to say that OneStream would take legal action against me, despite, themselves having broken the terms of our contract, despite myself informing them in writing that I do not agree to the new proposed terms and I wish to cancel my connection and despite having already been assured by OneStream's customer service via email that the account was closed and no amount was owed. It is outrageous being threated with legal action for not having done anything wrong, just because OneStream are incapable of keeping up with their records. Also, there is no means of speaking to anyone during COVID. Appalling service overall.

    When I moved house they could not provide broadband in the new location. They then said they would cancel my contract due to this.
    A month later they charged me again so i phoned them, eventually getting through and spoke to someone else who said they'd cancel it again for me and refund the extra charges.
    Now the next month there is no sign of my refund and they have just billed me again claiming that my contract was never cancelled. This is three times I have had confirmation of it being cancelled and still been charged.

    Avoid avoid avoid! Been passed from pilar to post. Spoke to nearly all the staff at the customer services department and none could come up with a reason why they haven’t been connected the internet in over a month. They still had the cheek to charge me even though I was promised I wouldn’t have to pay. Even now I’m sitting here without any internet a months and a half later. Worst company ever. I’ve cancelled my contract and gone elsewhere. Complete waste of time.

    Avoid at all costs - the actual broadband was patchy and slow (although not unbearable).

    The worst bit though was in the middle of our contract they claimed they could no longer afford the discount set out in the contract and raised the price from £13 to £25/month. Shortly after the price rise kicked in they then lowered their prices again for new customers.

    Dishonest, disingenuous and just poor.

    Appalling service - avoid at all costs . We cancelled our autistic daughter’s contract when we moved her out of her property . We paid fully - Oct payment made in nov , nov payment made in dec - she vacated the property nov 21st .
    Onestream then deemed it appropriate to send our daughter emails chasing her for further payment which they said was in arrears , causing unnecessary stress and anxiety . We contacted them and explained that we had paid in full , only to be told it takes up to 30 days for them to process and so we were liable to pay for a service we did not use in a property vacated , because their process is slow ! It begs belief how this company is still operating, especially at a time when people of sound mind aswell as those with specific conditions and mental health issues, are struggling to cope . At no point did anyone from Onestream advise our daughter of this “so called “ 30 day process until we queried their tactics . Suffice to say we paid the £40.37 ... does that mean they win with their tactics .... not if everyone avoids them at all costs ,please read before being fooled by their “best price “ message, you will pay for the poor decision in the long run

    Ok, So I went with Onestream as they were cheap ..really cheap when compared to others. I'm a grown man & should have really known better in fairness.

    Ordered FTTC (Fibre to the Cab) - but the order was then changed to normal Copper dal end to end as there was no capacity in the local exchange for Fibre ...despite me being able to order it via their website. (Strike 1)

    Everything was ok for the first 4/5 months ...not amazing speeds - but enough to work with.
    Then the problems started ......

    All of a sudden my broadband price DOUBLED, and some rubbish email from them claimed this was due to the COVID-19 situation.... How/Why/WTAF ? (Strike 2)

    Last month I had a fault on the line, line had noise on it, broadband would drop out for a few hours at a time. Tried reporting it to them via their amateur website & to be frank about it - I've had better trips to the dentist.
    Was constantly told there was no issue found, it got to the stage where I lost my cool said I was going to a different provider. All of a sudden a 'fault' was detected on my line. I can only put this down to a pure coincidence (Strike 3)

    So to recap, (1) I didn't get what I ordered in the first place. (2) My price has doubled due to a nasty flu like bug (3) They need to be forced to look into problems.

    3 strikes .. I'm out and heading towards Plusnet

    Stay safe & stay clear of Onestream broadband

    I joined after being with Sky on 15.10.19. The broadband speed is horrendous and if you cancel within the 14 day cooling off period, you have to pay out of your own pocket to return the router that i paid £10 for. DO NOT use this provider, strike a deal with your current provider rather than jump ship for what seems like a good deal. it is CRAP.

    Never call you back, was fobbed off so many times! Got to the point I cried out of anxiety because of how much I was being fobbed off. Had no internet for weeks at a time, one time over a month! It even happened when I first joined them, and I was in the 14 day cooling off period so tried to switch to another provider but they blocked it because they attempted to contact me a whole week after my initial complaint. I am so happy to be free of them. It's embarrassing I had to get my partner to ring them up and use their deep voice (repeating exactly what I already had stated to them mind you) before I got any compensation. Incompetent. You get what you pay for.

    The WORST internet provider ever !!

    Their internet is absolutely TRASH, Customer Service TRASH, STAY WELL AWAY.

    I've called and emailed numerous times as the internet is so bad you can only use one device- as in phone/ tv/ laptop at a time- and its ALWAYS buffering.

    I've called numerous times, been on hold for over an hour many times, been promised call backs, wifi extenders to be provided and claimed to be posted out, internet speeds to be tested with investigations on how to improve the service- absolutely NO response or results that result in better internet or customer service.

    I've spoken to Dan Kelly, Darren, Abi, Connor, Darren, Blake after waiting on hold for hours combined with no response to phone calls or emails.

    I have sky and I can't even use all the services as the internet is so weak it won't even recognise it on the box.

    I am at my wits end with them

    I'm stuck in contract I want out it at this point as the service and customer service is abysmal.

    Save yourself the headache, the blood pressure and run when you see them. RUN AWAY FROM THE DEVIL HIMSELF.

    Avoid. No interest in customer support, and if you escalate anything to the "Executive" team, they will flat-out argue with you and be rude. I am having to take legal action against them. Read the reviews - simply the worst.

    This company is an absolute sham and should not be operating as a telecoms provider. Having worked in customer services previously I'm more than used to hearing whingers leaving bad reviews and try to avoid doing so myself without good reason, but this was honestly the worst customer experience I've ever had.

    30 attempts to get in touch with customer services, 20 mins on hold each time, nobody ever picked it up. No reply on their email, ever. Nobody ever came to install it so it never worked. Nobody got back to me. After a few weeks of shouting angrily at a brick wall I ended up emailing the CEO who did promptly apologise and give me a full refund.

    Please, for your own sanity, don't make the mistake of choosing this company - I've switched to a provider 50p/m more expensive and they are a functioning company at least.

    This review is for ONESTREAM broadband who have done everything they can to NOT supply with broadband for £9.99.
    As my speeds here are slow, nobody's fault, bar BT's for aged/aging line, (60ish years they say) overhead fibre in place but BT don't know when it will go live! i go for the cheapest i can find on a 12 month contract. I was and still am with John Lewis, brilliant service, but contract ending the 4th December and going up to £26.99 from 18.00, so started looking. ONESTREAM £9.99 black friday deal! cheapest by £6 a month next to the Post Office at £15.90.
    Filled in the boxes, GOT IT! Text say welcome and connection under way. Took £9.99 delivery, and then £9.99 for 1st month, sat back and waited, nothing.gave it 10 days and called, "oh sorry, your current provider will not release the line and number" well the contract's up in 2 days and they know i'm looking to move say's i."we will request the change again" says he.
    4 days later, email from ONESTREAM "your speeds are so poor our systems cannot function correctly to supply you standard broadband, but we can supply a boosted speed for £26.99! (not fibre, no mention of fibre) if not you will be refunded" still waiting for me refunds!!
    Stayed with John Lewis for £20 for 12 months. Another email just arrived from ONESTREAM "oh no, our broadband doesn't reach as far as you live so we can't complete your order"!!!
    They can't even lie consistently.
    I'd stay well away folks.
    JOHN LEWIS BROADBAND BRILLIANT.

    BEFORE reading comments here, I placed my first order for 18mth service on DEC 28th. go-live date was stated as 13th Jan, today. I've had no further updates, router etc since that first "order confirmed" email!
    I've tried contacting the company by ALL available methods - phone, email, online chat. Never got a reply on the phone - only "hold" music. No reply to emails. Started a online chat with Dan K. The moment I mentioned my order number he was gone!! Seriously what sort of clowns are running this so-called business. Next stop the ombudsman.........

    If I could score less than 1 I would do. I joined Onestream back in December 2019. Since then I have not been able to receive incoming calls. An Openreach engineer visited my house and told me that Onestream had not transferred my number from my previous provider. My emails are ignored and this morning it is impossible to connect with an online advisor. Customer service is useless. Avoid this provider at all costs.

    Just wanted to leave a quick note to thank all the people who have reviewed this company and left the negative reviews. I’m glad I did my research before almost signing up. Seems like I dodged a bullet! So these reviews definitely make a difference! Thanks for the heads up.

    I am a doctor, on a DD, who has been disconnected twice during the pandemic which has meant I've struggled to make my e-consultations due to faults with OneStream! I'd recommend you avoid them - it's not worth the hassle.

    I have been cut off twice now, for not paying my bills. The first time, they haven't been able to figure out why my direct debit was cancelled (not by me). Second time, the DD has been taken from my account but not shown up on their system. Their phone lines aren't working. And their CS over chat have told me they have no record of payment of DD. I've sent them the proof of payment and await their back tracking.

    I was told "you receive your bank statements so can tell if there is a payment issue" and frankly that was the last straw for me. When I have a DD setup, I don't expect to have to check it to see if payment has been taken or not. That's the whole point of the DD.

    And to add insult, I've also been told there is a price rise which we told you about in June, mid contract, after getting special dispensation from Ofcom for it. I mean, absolutely ridiculous CS, ridiculous systems and frankly a ridiculous company I'd avoid at all costs.

    We went from a working internet line from another company on Wednesday to a non-working one from OneStream on Thursday, and now it’s Monday and still no internet access – it’s not going well!

    I had been advised to do the changeover not on Friday but a day earlier, in case there were problems as I couldn’t ring over the weekend to sort out any problems.
    Maybe this ought to have given warning bells! No support at the weekend!

    Hulya Okudan was great when signing up - really helpful and answered all my questions, including about the bad reviews on this site. I naiively thought all would be ok.

    But then I signed up and everything fell apart. One they had the contract, I’m not sure how much they cared.

    We were told the internet would be off for a few hours. We still haven't got any internet a 4 days later, causing a lot of disruptions and extra costs as I had to buy data instead. No offer of compensation. That would have eased the blow.
    If this wasn't bad enough, we couldn’t contact anyone about it!
    Phone calls: Turns out, that we couldn’t call, even on a Thursday or Friday for assistance! They were not taking calls (ok this may be due to the situation but we were in the same situation when I signed up and we weren’t warned about this). They have a mailbox for elderly and vulnerable customers – but the mail box was full. So that shows how much they care about that! It is not hard to re-route numbers to personal phone lines if they wanted but seems that they are not bothered.

    Live chat: The phone line, website all said to do this. This has not been working at all even on the 4G we luckily have.

    E-mails: No response for hours/days depending. One response from the complaints department was to use the online live chat which we had said in the e-mail that it wasn’t working (!).

    When we did finally get a phone call in response to lots of e-mails, the guy who tried to help us was really great. So helpful and friendly. But although he did a lot, there was only so much he could do, and it has been raised to the technical stage which takes a long time. (After a lot of emails we finally found the reason why - it is with an external supplier vodaphone so had to wait for them too)

    As with a lot of people, work and food supply is online so this is not great.

    It really has caused so much problems already.
    Maybe they will start caring about current customers (rather than just potential customers) more in the future, but I would really suggest avoiding if you rely on the internet for anything. This was for the fibre option. I saw all the complaints and wondered if it related to just normal broadband. I saw the complements, and yes the staff we have spoken to have been great, especially on sign up, but the overall service for us once signed up has been appalling. I also noted the comments where OneStream has offered a competition to get free broadband for a 6 months if leaving positive comments. This could explain the positive comments. The warning signs are all there, sigh.

    We are within the 14 day cooling off period so I think we are going to change supplier I think. Just for piece of mind in case a fault happens again as their service is so dire. Another company would have sorted this out much quicker, and we would have been able to phone them. Our previous company is not perfect, but was better than these!

    The guaranteed speed isn’t all that much better than our previous broadband anyway for the cheap option, so worth considering whether it is worth paying a little more for better speeds and a better company. If you don’t rely on internet if you don’t mind that they do make mess-ups in the payments (as they have done) so you have to keep an eye on that - maybe onestream will be ok for you. I really don't think they are for us!


    UPDATE:
    We have internet!! Amazing - 4-5 days with nothing and now we have. But!!! It's below (8.25) the minimum guaranteed speed (only 10!) We are paying more for less. Expected is 15-20 they say. Lower your expectations I say.
    Have e-mailed to confirm that we will get a refund and can pass to another company without penalty.

    UPDATE: It gets worse! On complaint of the low sppeds, was told the minimum speed guaranteed for wired connection only! Not wireless! Where does it say that? #Duped They ignored the question about my refund (!). So I've asked it again. Not expecting much.

    A couple of the staff lower down the pecking order were quite good - higher up? Nope. That plus lack of being able to contact them efficiently = low scores all round.

    *WORST BROADBAND OUT THERE*

    I honestly could not dislike a company more than onestream. They have the most rubbish internet out there, we've been paying £29.99 for over a year for their super fast fibre broadband and even when your 1 metre away from the router you're still on buffering for minutes on end before you see the page. They also have the worst customer service, I was basically called a liar when I had try to complain about the internet speed and I was told that the internet is working and is very fast despite not being able to use it.
    DO NOT I repeat DO NOT use them for broadband. Save yourself the misery and stress, now going to virgin media for £24.99 and looking forward to it!!

    Log a complaint quite few times, yet no action taken. Infact they promised to take action in three days. Now, its has been more than 2 months. Always internet interruption. My advise to others, leave them, don't even come close. Look for other reliable provider.

    **Avoid at all costs**
    I was in a difficult situation where there was a possibility I was going to have to move due to covid. I enquired about my options and the associated costs of terminating my contract early (without actually confirming the cancellation), as it transpired - I moved house and asked to have the service relocated. I contacted onestream to process the transfer and they advised that the contract had been terminated, I would have to pay a early termination (which was the balance of my contract in full) and then pay again for a new connection!!! Effectively meaning they want me to pay double for the same service. This means that they are trying to directly profit from vulnerable people caught up in convid. Disgusting behaviour. When the broadband was working, it dropped out constantly and they never offered compensation for each drop out. Do yourself a favour and select another provider at all costs!!!

    Onestream suddenly increased their collection on my direct debit with no notification by email or post. When I tried to call their support line the message says due to Covid they can only provide online support via chat. When I tried to connect on chat there was no response after an hour. When I emailed their billing and support emails there was no response or acknowledgement. I assumed the company must be going bust! Assuming Onestream had probably gone into liquidation I read the very negative reviews on TrustPilot and Broadband.co.uk and thought if I cancelled my direct debit that might persuade Onestream to call me and explain what they were doing. Within a few days my phone line was terminated and broadband stopped working. I called Plusnet and they answered the phone on a Saturday after 5 rings and have now transferred my account, or I thought I had! Although I am out of contract and free to move Onestream have now deleted my number from the registry as one last act of defiance on their part so I am having to so get a new telephone number after 20 years with all the headache that entails. They really are not a very nice company and their service is atrocious so before you consider signing up with Onesteam I suggest you consider the value of having a person answer a support call within a few rings - given how much we rely on the Internet it's worth the peace of mind to pay a little more - except Plusnet is £7 a month cheaper! No, I am not linked to Plusnet in any way I just felt they needed a shout out for saving the day. In these dark times it is a great relief that there are some decent companies out there providing what is an essential service. Goodbye Onestream and good riddance!

    I paid the £50 deposit then they mailed me to say that if I wanted the speed that I'd asked for I would have to pay another fee to BT Connect for ADSL between (£70 - £190). I immediately cancelled but now they wont return my deposit so I'm taking them to Small Claims Court very soon.

    Avoid..
    I am not even a customer, I only enquired about their service but was told they would take £9.99 while they set things up, that would be refunded if they could not provide the service. Well they cannot provide the service but still have not refunded my money three weeks later. So glad I did not become a customer now.

    Utterly horrendous. The broadband doesn't work there is no customer service... no replies to emails or complaints.
    Am left with no broadband and no one to help.
    Losing money with my business. Wouldn't wish them on my worst enemy.

    I actively avoid confrontation, and yet I'm utterly exhausted from dealing with this company and trying to rectify their mistakes. Never have I seen such incompetence: within just six months of my time with them, they managed to overcharge me, change the guaranteed speed *AFTER* I'd signed up (then fail to reach even the new minimum speed), dodge my emails, incorrectly charge me engineer fees twice only to later rescind them, and finally wrongfully chased me for money after I'd cancelled.

    Terrible customer service, all the staff I spoke to were young casuals who I had to pity: they'd been given no training or resources to actually help, instead they awkwardly sympathise with your complaints without actually providing a solution. Reeks of ownership and management that is incompetent at best, but probably deliberately deceitful.

    AVOID - raise prices mid-contract without any notice and then charge you extortionate amounts to leave, citing some lost line in the small print of that contract they know people don’t read. Extortion and corporate greed at its finest. Not to mention constant issues with broadband cutting out and a non-existent customer service (until they want money from you!!)

    Do not sign up to this provider.

    The router arrived a lot later than promised. When it did arrive it didn't work and after eventually getting hold of one of the advisors, was sent a guide which didn't remedy the problem.

    Two weeks after I was promised to be connected I was told the router was faulty and I needed a member of their technical team to call me. This again didn't remedy the problem. After many attempts to phone them I decided to cancel my subscription. I was told a member of accounts would email to offer a refund, however this still hasn't happened and I cannot get in contact with them. I was 30 mins on the phone to them in one instance and nobody answered. I have sent numerous emails and received no reply. Terrible service !
