We've just gone for more than a month without reliable internet access. (This happens in winter - seems to be related to rainy weather.) I resorted to going to the library to do my internet banking! Lousy excuse for tech support, featuring:
turn your modem off for a couple of minutes then back on
unplug the cables and then re-plug
it must be your modem (can't be as the landline goes via Flip also, and can be tried independently of the modem - never worked when the internet ...read more
Unreliable internet, as in none at all for days at a time.

Speed is 8/10 because I've settled for ADSL, rather than paying the extra for fibre. For ADSL, though, the service seems good -- well over 8 Mb/s down speed. Support graded as 8/10 only because I haven't needed any! Any outages have been fixed before I've had a chance to call support. I'm not sure I had to call them even when I was connecting up my modem when joining.
Excellent value and, apparently, a professional service.
No fixed IP. Most people don't need it: only people who know for sure that they need it will care. (In my case, I only found out when trying to play Elite: Dangerous. Who knew?)

Internet will lose connection every 10 minutes or so. Had the connection disconnect for an entire day. Very unreliable, had to resort to getting unlimited phone data to have any stable internet connection at home. I would not reccomend Flip to others.
No stable connection, slow speed, very unsatisfactory service.

Good value for the first month only by using promo code.
Super slow ADSL.
Speed, Support service

No customer service support. Lots of issues with speed and it dropping out. Had to replace cords and modem twice in one year- and still have problems. Wouldn't recommend
Initially they were good- nice customer care- but they don't seem to have that anymore
Bad speed, no support, no hold option, monthly billing in advance- no partial months for cancelation

whatever they help the speed is not increasing. their supplied modem/router is very bad

Lack.of support or technical knowledge

Worst company I have ever dealt with. Impossible to get hold of anyone useful. They will do everything they can to avoid helping you but will still steal your $ as they r nothing but criminals. I hope their entire management team gets cancer and dies
They lie. Have no respect for their customers. Ignore emails. No way to contact them directly. Basically they completely suck. I warn everyone I know to avoid them like the plague they r
