BT. It’s 2018. Hello. We are currently talking about space tourism here in Cornwall. Good luck with that. If I here BT have anything to do with the space program I will be recommending that people should not travel. Understandably.

I am a carer and work nights. I had to go out last night with no mobile or data. Puts my life at risk.

Stay Clear of BRITISH TELECOM all departments. In fact you will be lucky if you can understand anything cuz most of them can’t speak English clearly.

Wi-fi Fon and the app the worst thing I have ever had the misfortune of signing up to

Mac Stanley

BT Wi-fi Fon do yourselves a favour and never use or get involved with it. Signed up for 12 months and it is the most infuriating inept product I have unfortunately ever had the misfortune to use. I signed up for unlimited 12 months a decision I regret hugely as someone that relies on a decent internet for work. It forever cuts out meaning you have to go through the tedious useless process of signing back in again each time, doesn’t work regularly and is incredibly slow when it does. Incredibly frustrating to use. I got the app as it said will ‘automatically sign my phone in’. It NEVER works. I can honestly say using BT both app and Wi-fi Fon are the most stressful and frustrating things in my life. Avoid at all costs.

Poor, pathetic.


I have to say that this has got to be amongst the worst and most useless apps I have.. Ok I'm not the sharpest tool in the box when it comes to IT, I accept that, BUT, for example when it says go to location services (which I can) turn it on (which I cant because the relevant sub menu does not include that function). When you consider both these instructions are on the same web page?

I have never actually found BT to be that good and the fool that I am has had an automatic subscription renewal enabled for years and never actually managed to get on line. Next task is to cancel automatic renewal go to competitor service provider and sign up.

If I could leave 0 stars I would, but I am obliged to leave at least 1 - which I have done, reluctantly.
