After any years of very poor broadband with BT we were able to join Wessex Internet and have never looked back. Thank you.

superfast a bit disappointing. Worked superfast at first, but seems to have slowed down again.

Living in a remote area and struggling for many years with a minimal download speed of 1 mb, we turned to Wessex Internet We now get a minimal speed of 50 mb with no lagging or buffering, it has made such a difference, and they were very helpful every step of the way!

We have only had Wessex internet for a few months and everything is working well, we only have the 35mb speed which is more than adequate for general use and watching programs such as Netflix and prime tv

Everything seems to be ok. Sometimes it seems a bit slow but I don't know if that is my MacBook or the internet.

Super efficient company.. Super fast broadband.!

Jean Bell - 02/05/2019

Wessex Internet - Your Local Superfast Provider

An extremely good service from first contact through to installation, quick and efficient. The speeds are so much quicker than the old broadband, programmes are ready to watch before I’ve sat down again and when doing boring things like VAT returns, it doesn’t keep cutting out and I have to reconnect. My only gripe is that it doesn’t reach all round the house but I can live with that.

Eunice Dale - 02/05/2019

Good personal service and a good product. It has been an easy transition to use Wessex Internet.

Student Tribe Ltd - 02/05/2019

Wessex Internet - Your Local Superfast Provider

The cable was laid underground with the minimum of fuss by a skilful machine operator who was very thorough in respect of finding depth of existing pipes and cables and the end result is we have a very good signal and can very nearly say goodbye to BT, which would please me very much indeed.
