Sylvanette's Review for bigblu

 bigblu (Broadband Satellite)
Posted: 16th Sep, 2019    By: Sylvanette
Title: Avoid
Avoid. I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt even after reading the reviews, thinking that the complaints of slow service might be from people with unrealistic expectations of satellite broadband service. I signed up, paid a fortune for installation, and we have struggled for 5 months with download speeds slower than ADSL. Even with our ‘priority data’ downloading a file on my Audible account took around 20 minutes, and the latency is so bad it can take 3-4 tries to get a page to fully load. I tried tech support several times but they were worse than useless, unable to provide any help at all (after blowing smoke for several minutes each time) and twice left it all with me to run a speed check every few hours for a few days, and get back to them. I couldn’t believe it. In the end we have cancelled, have had to pay another fortune to get out of a contract for which we never received the service we were promised, and I’ve got to ship all their equipment back to them at my expense. Planning to get in touch with Which to find out my rights, but in the meantime, learn from my mistake and avoid this provider.
