Downsides of using Onestream broadband

There is no bundling option with TV as the provider offers just broadband and call plans. If you plan to get TV with broadband, Sky, Virgin Media and TalkTalk are better options as you can save money on great deals offered by these providers.

With Onestream, you can’t get free public WiFi or free cloud storage that are provided by a few providers like BT and Sky.

Onestream does not offer free PC security such as offered by John Lewis, BT and Vodafone.

Although, Onestream pricing is affordable, you can still find alternative cheaper options from Vodafone, TalkTalk and Plusnet which often launch special offers with discounts, cashback and vouchers.

So, is Onestream broadband any good?

Getting limited options, you can choose a speed which is less than 100Mbps. Onestream currently lacks ultra fast speeds (100Mbps+) that help you stream & watch 4K videos without any technical issues.

However, the entry-level, 11Mbps average download speeds are fast enough for browsing, shopping online and streaming & downloading. Fibre broadband (35Mbps & 63Mbps) is significantly faster as well as more reliable, helping you connect multiple devices and stream HD and game online.

Onestream is relatively a new provider in UK broadband market. The Hampshire based provider was launched by business ISP Onecom which, no doubt, has good expertise in broadband service for years.

The provider has a team of experts to attend the queries and issues of customers on telephone, while alternative options like email is also available to contact the ISP.
