Is John Lewis broadband down?
When broadband services go down, you're unable to access the internet, streaming video, and email. In most cases, all of these will go down within minutes of each other. But how can you check if it's your internet provider that's down, or whether the problem is elsewhere?
First, check the cabling on your router. Confirm everything is plugged in, then attempt to connect on as many devices as you can. Also, try rebooting the router. Once you're certain there is a problem, you'll need to find another means of connecting to the internet so you can check the service status online.
Start by heading to the John Lewis service status page. This will show outages on broadband, phone, email, and web access.
You should also check the John Lewis Twitter. While this covers its overall business, major outages are often highlighted here.
If you discover there's a service outage then you'll need to wait until it's rectified - calling tech support won't help, and they'll likely be overwhelmed so you could end up waiting a long time to speak to anyone. If you can't see any sign of a wider issue with the John Lewis service using the above resources, then you should get in touch with customer services.
How to complain about John Lewis
If you're running into repeated problems with John Lewis broadband, or don't feel you're receiving the best service, it may be time to make a complaint.
Get in touch via Twitter
It's worth making Twitter your first point of contact for complaints. Twitter accounts are typically monitored throughout working hours (and beyond) so you should be able to expect a relatively quick response. This may not be the case over the phone.

Complain in writing
Not everyone has a great relationship with their broadband provider. If you're not getting the service you've been promised, and complaints to John Lewis have not worked out, then it may be time to write a letter. Here's a reminder of the address:
John Lewis Broadband
2 Pinfold Street
Be sure to keep the letter polite, legible, and fact-based.
You can also email complaints to [email protected]. However, this is meant for escalating a complaint so you should first try speaking to customer services (either by phone, online contact form, or Twitter) before taking it further.
Complaining about John Lewis to Ombudsman Service: Communication

You'll need to follow the ISP's complaint procedure and wait for the result.
