I didn't have any problems as a cutstomer until two weeks ago, I came back from a trip to London and found they'd disconnected my broadband and phone line. After eight days of endless calls, and trying to discover what had gone on, they'd disconnected me because if an account holder goes over a certain limit each month on their bills, then they automatically get disconnected. I had money in the account to easily pay the bill, however they decided to turn us off without warning. It even took them several days to turn the broadband back on. Suffice to say they've lost a customer, no apology nothing... sorry but cold.

I've tried signing up with them twice in the past 4 months but never got any confirmation. Signed up to sky last week and got my router ans everything. Waiting for the switch on Thursday

I wish I had a BT line instead of Cable..!!

So, as an existing customer of several years, could I ring them and take out this deal? If so I would save a good few quid each month!

Only if you are out of contract like me :D. It requires a new 12 month contract. It should be theoretically possible. I was going to find out but customer services closed. I'll try tomorrow and post here.

with all the bad press talk talk have had in the press n on tv, i think i;ll give them a wide berth, and stick to an isp that gives good reliable service, nice deal tho for those who want to risk it
#11
one thing good about them i will say, its nice they finally reduced the minimum contract from 18 months to 12 months, more in line with other isp's

I've been with them for over 2 years and i've had nothing but great broadband and calls. Don't know about anyone else but once again...locations are key factors in Talk Talk service.

Ouch...just talked to someone on the phone from their sales dept about transferring over from virgin media. If anyone was wondering it seems to be a £29.99 charge for a new line but the 50% off deal is not valid. More to the point the woman was very rude and abrupt to me when I expressed by dissapointment that the 50% deal was not available and that I would have to compare with Virgin and BT prices. Her insistance that her price was the cheapest was very pressurising even though I told her that if I was to apportion the 29.99 charge over 12 months it worked out more expensive that what I am currently paying with Virgin fora comparable service

Cant say I would recommend talktalk to anyone having worked in a phone shop and heard countless horror stories from customers (more than BT :O )

Talktalk are a total **** pain regarding internet, my connection drops out probably 3 or 4 times in an evening, on the plus side they are providing a much fast service than Virgin was on my line - 3.5 vs 7.5

Swings I suppose........

Bravo...nice speed mate! Pity i'm not in fibre optic area...at least not yet! Even though i'm half a mile from central london

All the bad things you hear about TalkTalk are true. They are mind numbingly awful. Those customers that haven’t suffered yet have it all to come.

Those thinking of joining the sufferers should go and sit in darkened room until their sanity returns.
#27
Beware, they call you up in 11 months time and ask how things are.

Apparently this constitutes agreeing to another 12 months of contract....

Would never recommend or deals with these cowboys again..

Good luck.. x

Given the total lies told to me by their sales guy the other day then I'll give them a miss thanks, not going with a company that has to lie to get customers. Their other method of mass advertising doesn't fill me with confidence either, something around £30 million per quarter.

Can't comment on their service though except to say I can't really use it for gaming because of the kind of traffic they throttle and that several work colleagues have left them due to poor service. Their deals are normally pretty good though.
#29
This is my contract now:

12 months at £19.79 & a free wireless N router (courtesy of signing up a year)

Just waiting for it to be upgraded now. I've called up 3 times to confirm and yes..it's confirmed

Terrible customer service, the worst i have ever experienced but is a good deal so?????

show off! :p
I was checking the 50mb contract with VM, but it's £50 per month, and at the moment I'm paying £22 for 14mb and a few addons with talk talk. I know that's way faster but a bit to expensive for my pocket.
A nice thing about VM, is that they give a free online backup service.

Exactly...nice speed but not a 'hot deal' if they're burning a hole in your pocket!

Most the people in this thread are talking so much crap I'm not even going to attempt to prove them wrong. Especially as most have never used them, yet all the actual customers have no problems.

They don't throttle gaming traffic, and I've been gaming with them for about 6 years since the days of 512kbps connections and even then it was fine, that's on a PC though, I can't comment on consoles as they generally suck in every aspect anyway.

so you're right and everyone else is talking crap?

same as the 975 people on this review site I suppose:-

http://www.reviewcentre.com/reviews98376.html

you would have to be mad to move to talktalk!

I've had very bad experience with TalkTalk when I tried to leave recently, extra charges etc, no letter or communication from them at all apart from a letter from a debt collection agency. I would avoid TalkTalk. O2 are far better, and give existing customers the "special deals" at the end of the contracts, which is a nice thing to do.

That said if you are happy with TalkTalk then this is probably not a bad deal. I wonder do they offer this to existing customers who are coming to an end of their contract?

Moi existing customer contract expired...got it

AVOID, AVOID, AVOID. Whatever you do stay well away from this company. I am in a legal battle with them at the moment as they are trying to charge me 18 months money because I cancelled my contract with them as they could not provide me with a broadband service. I was being charged for it and did have the phone service but everytime it came to the broadband service being activated it never happened. After 3 months and 23 calls to the Indian call centre I cancelled it and now I am getting all sorts of letters from debt collection agencies because I refuse to pay for something they could not provide me with in the first place. Take my advice and stay well clear. Voted cold.

There are plenty of people here that have personal experience of them, not all good and I personally know several people that have left them due to various problems. So to say "all the actual customers have no problems" is total rubbish unless you can't read. Some very kind person here has even posted a link for you.

I am also part of a gaming clan and it's a well known fact they throttle all p2p traffic which the how they categorise game traffic at Talk Talk with the exception of a handful of games. Granted this is console games but I long since moved onto console gaming away from PC gaming because I find it suits my game requirements better. Consoles may "suck" but all 3 of mine cost less than a decent games PC so I find it strange that someone would go for a cheap ISP for serious gaming.
