Origin Broadband Customer Service Review

When it comes to Origin Broadband customer service, it’s very much a mixed-bag according to the latest Origin Broadband reviews. Some customers have only good things to say, even going as far as recommending it as the best customer service from all Broadband Providers, whilst others point out how terrible the Origin Broadband customer service is.

Was put through to cancellations and Sharon Wilkinson talked me through some packages and made me stay with Origin Broadband. Probably the best customer service i have received from any broadband provider. Once again Thank you to Sharon Wilkinson.

Spoke with Shane regarding an issue that had been going on since the 24th Dec, the only issue I have had since joining origin 3 years ago. His customer service skills are excellent, he is polite, friendly and completely professional. He resolved the issue within minutes, and followed up straight away with an email confirmation. Would highly recommend origin to anyone who is looking for a new broadband provider.

Horrible customer service, had no internet in the house for over 2 weeks, they can't seem to fix it even after technician came to the house to try. They wont let me cancel the contract without paying a fee and still charging me for the month even though the internet isn't working. Furthermore, when I asked to speak to the manager, he's not available.

Shocking service left 5 month ago due to rubbish signals and rubbish customer service now they trying to charge me 125pounds for a service I never received and keep telling me to call customer service after me emailing saying I have a throat condition which means I cannot speak! I just get ignored and constant harassment plus increasing debt!!

To use the Origin Broadband live chat, you will need to login to your online account and access it from your customer dashboard.

What Is My Origin Broadband Username? Your Origin Broadband username is something you will set up when you first get signed-up for Origin Broadband. It will most likely be the same email address that the provider uses to send communications to. If you’ve forgotten your password, you can easily reset it from the Origin Broadband login screen. However, if you can’t remember your username you will need to contact Origin Broadband to reset it.

Origin Broadband Social Media

The Origin Broadband social media accounts don’t seem to be as active as they once were. But that doesn’t mean you can’t tweet or DM these accounts. It might not be the quickest way to get in touch with Origin Broadband though. Here’s the list of Origin Broadband social media accounts:

Origin Broadband Email Address

Another great way to contact the provider is via the Origin Broadband email address. However, we would strongly recommend that you only use email for less-urgent enquiries as getting a reply could take anywhere from a few minutes to a few days. So if your broadband is down, give the origin broadband phone number a ring. But if you have a couple of questions about a bill then go right ahead and send an email. Below is the Origin Broadband email address.

The final contact option is the Origin Broadband address. Whilst you may never need to send a letter to the provider, you might need it if you have to send a cheque payment for example. As this is the slowest way to contact Origin Broadband, we’d only recommend using the Origin Broadband address as a last resort.

If your complaint cannot be resolved at the first point of contact, it will be passed on to a team leader or manager to investigate.

If you’re not satisfied with this outcome, you should request that your Origin Broadband complaint be escalated to the complaints team.

You escalate your complaint to the Ombudsman in the following ways:
