If you're not bothered about customer service and only need around 2meg download speed, which is the CHEAPEST provider out there?
I am looking for the cheapest, I can usually figure out my own problems. For example, my Sky router would disconnect certain services, took me a bit of time to find out that it was the Sky router, because everything worked fine with the previous one. I hack the login and password out of the Sky router and put it into the exisitng router. Back up to 100% again. Recently this router too started having problems, after a few hours or detective work, I found out that unplugging it from the mains sorted it.
Most problems that people have ARE due to their equipment (router, computer, wireless device (laptop, nowtv box, tablete etc)), so I am not surprised that CS reps tell people to unplug, power cycle etc their equipment. The Sky router would not have worked whatever I had done because it is a crap router. Once I knew this it was easy, but if I had been the average person, I would probably have called Sky and they would not have been able to sort my problem. Then I would have come here and said Sky are ****. But it was equipment (supplied by Sky), but nonetheless equipment.
Very few people have problems with lines etc and my line is OK under Sky so should be OK under TalkTalk.

The fact that openreach have massive delays to come and fix line faults should tell you quite a few do have problems with the lines.
In my case, there were notes on the account telling them to put me through to second line support without going through the script as it was not my equipment at fault. To get to that point took over 2 months, but was a complete waste of time as every single operator ignored it and insisted I went through the hour long fault finding before they would transfer me. I think the minimum I waited for an answer was around 45 minutes, and the quickest I got to second line support was around 1 hour 30 mins, however it was usually over 2 hours.

As I said earlier I was paying £5ish a month after they kept giving me goodwill gestures, the fact I'm paying 5 times as much now should show how highly I rate them :(

FWIW when I had ADSL from them the service was ok, very slow at around 2mb when the line supported about 6, but I had the problems when I upgraded to fibre. I was getting around 40% of the ADSL speed, constant disconnections, sometimes offline completely for over 24 hours, and it was the line at fault. I even bought a new router as they insisted it was that, something I disagreed with but they refused to go any further until I did (not that I should as they supplied it in the first place) I got the money back from them for it after an 8 (yes, 8!) hour phone call. When I say money back, a credit on my account.
louiselouise is correct the hg633 is just plain broken, at least when it comes to using fibre broadband.

You can work around it by setting the 633 to bridge mode and then use another router to do the actual routing. There's only one stumbling block connecting this way and that's talktalk only give 15 minutes lease time, unbelievable i know, and this can cause hiccups when release renewal doesn't go smoothly. The workaround for this problem is to use a router that has dd-wrt firmware available, i use a ancient old d-link 615 , the dd-wrt firmware starts renewing the release about 7 minutes ahead of time so the transfer goes smoothly. Only with this setup do I have useable fibre 38mb broadband from talktalk.

There are a few urging other members on the TalkTalk Community Forums to write to Watchdog and the Ombudsman to force them to sort this out - complaints go back a year for this router now!
Just get yourself a cheap router and use that, it will be less hassle and stress for you. I'm sure you will probably have one lying around from another provider.
All the old TalkTalk routers I have don't work on Fibre, tried that already.

There are loads of complaints about this router, all over their Forums but TalkTalk seem to deny any responsibility, or even offer a decent replacement.

I get that ISPs are working to a budget with their equipment but you're talking Wi-Fi so bad that it's unusable, eg, 5 disconnects in 15-30 minutes.

TV, calls & broadband. It's £10/mth for entire 18 months. See full details
Does this deal include the version of TTs Youview box that is capable of recording TV programmes (PVR function)? If so, what is the warranty on that YV box? Thanks.
I just play the game keep changing and grab the deals of new customers only but their Plus TV doesn't come round at half price for full contract very often even though the price will rise at least once i'm sure also the love2shop voucher is guaranteed so it makes it £5 a month for a youview box and you can get sky sport for one month only and someone said you can get BT sports now so could be good of course if you don't have to call customer services! Any idead including horror stories as well! I used them for broadband but i never had any problems so never rung them and still have a £3.95 mobile bill with them no problems with that either
Can you also go through TopCashBack or Quidco, and get and extra cash back, I did with BT last year, all the offers are still available through them. You are right about customer service, they are awful, but so are some of the others.
Anyone know how to get the TCB cashback as well as the voucher? If you click through cashback the voucher disappears! Not a bad deal whatever you think of them! Cancelled talktalk when i moved and the rose prices and took the sky offer of about £1 a month that ends next month so this couldn't have come at a better time

So was mine, been with Virgin for three years now, first 2 years were great on the 60Mbps package, then for about 12 months on the 152Mbps package it was ****. They finally fixed my area last month and my connection (now 200Mbps) has been flawless at all times.
Until Sky and BT offer those kinds of speeds at acceptable prices, they can f off.

I've had rock solid 145-150Mbps speeds on Virgin since the 152Mbps rollout and they're about to send out a new router for the 200Mpbs upgrade so I'm hoping for continued success. Their CS may be shocking but their product is good when it works.

I did the same, but it was so much hassle to renew sim only I wouldn't recommend. Gave all the correct info, they then offered more mins/data and said it would be the same price, got it all recorded, went from £7.50 a month to £10 a month, after 2 months of hassling them they credited my account with the difference, but took about 3 hours in total on the phone. They just lie. T-Mobile were the same to be honest

Personal data issues - Some people may **** off TalkTalk for recent hacking issues. They have added further security since so this should no longer be a concern.

They say that every time they're hacked - and in any event, they still haven't resolved the issue of untrustworthy overseas call centre staff stealing personal data.

I admire your confidence - or is it naivety? :|
Service - You get what you pay for in life. If you accept that you are saving money over rivals because their customer services teams are mainly abroad, I don't see the problem.

I think the cold votes are general dislike of the spectacularly rude and incompetent Talk Talk (eg my father's modem failed and it took them a month to replace it without apology)

This bunch of cowboys should have gone bust a long time ago. Additionally Sky Sports is a consumer rip off dedicated to emptying the pockets of the poor to give to multi millionaire Premiership footballers and should be boycotted & watched for free on the internet

probably because it's with the company with the worst customer service in the world. Last week, 3 months after I had left the company I was sent a bill for £100 that was sent the same day as an email telling me my account was in arrears and I would be receiving a visit from a debt collection agency. after almost an hour's conversation with them they agreed I owed nothing and gave me a code to send to the agency that would stop their visit. They said it was impossible to do this themselves. I wouldn't have a lifetimes free broadband from them if it was offered. They are useless! good luck with the cancellation......

The offer is for existing customers so people who are not TalkTalk's customers anymore shouldn't be voting cold just because they have had a bad experience with them. For example, I have had a bad experience with Vodafone, O2, and Three but that doesn't mean I should be voting cold on any deal that is posted about these 3 companies.

Voting Hot/cold surely is dependant on what is on offer. If someone can find a better deal which probably pays you (as this is free) to watch Sky sports for 3 months then they can vote cold as there is a better deal out there. But voting cold because one has had a bad experience with a certain company is not fair in my opinion. But then again, what do I know aye :-)

Yeah I'm getting anytime broadband, calls and tv recording from them for £10 a month at the moment but when i get on the order page for the fibre it says it's going up to £20 they're meant to carry your offers over.

TT have a very firm place in the market, at the bottom, they are cheap therefore they have crap customer service, you want excellent customer service pay £20 more a month. This is a good deal, fibre for not much.
Don't see how anyone gets a good service on talktalk without buying their own router, the hg633 'super...cough cough... router' they dish out is just plain faulty. I've never experienced a bigger piece of carp.

Year's gone by, o2 (for me) where very good, then Sky BB took it over, rock solid and no problems. Moved to Plusnet and over the year the normal BB got poorer and poorer, causing us to consider their Fibre, maybe that was their master-plan, migrate us to a costlier service? I agree with comments above, you only find out how poor a company is when you experience problems. It was taking me 45-50 mins on hold to even get through to the Plusnet Teams each time.
That's funny just been hanging on to Plusnet 50 minutes to get answer. My broadband download has dropped from 20% from last June - couldn't give a reason so asked me to do BTW speed test - doesn't look like they have an answer.

We have just been through 3 weeks of hell with Plusnet Customer/Tech Service, nearly went with TalkTalk, but poor reviews put me off. Plusnet where next to useless on our recent fault. Weeks of time wasting, mistakes and lies.
This is the point I made earlier, everything's good when no problems is this just singling out Talk Talk because it's been posted as a good deal- would there be many complaining if it was another provider? Not supporting Talk Talk but is it just crap service we have to tolerate whoever we are with!

No, because many other providers don't have as bad customer service as talktalk.
BT are close to talktalk
Plusnet used to be good, now not so good, but at least they will deviate from scripts and if you push you will get it sorted.

whats wrong with the hg633? works beautifully here
Talk talk provide a WiFi router - huawei hg633 that is completely unsuitable for connecting to via wifi. There are many examples on the TalkTalk community forum of people who cannot use the router and have to buy another one at anything from £30 to £300. TalkTalk are washing their hands of their customers. Cannot recommend

18 month contract, line rental at 17.70 x 18 = 318.60
Last 6 months fibre @ £10 a month = 60

Total cost of 18 month contract is 318.60+60+6.75 (router deliver) = 385.35

OP here....I actually ended up cancelling talk talk and asking for a refund.

They were as terrible as everyone says they are.
Still don't have my refund.
TalkTalk have absolutely appalling speeds on some of their packages. My mother uses their lowest internet package in her house and the speed has stayed the same after 7-8 years. Despite all the developments in internet speeds and requirements for faster speeds. Unbelievably, she is getting real-world 1.5-2MB speeds in a part of South London. Those are speeds from 2005 and woefully inadequate for 2015/16. YouTube videos barely work as you have to wait for them to buffer, even on sub-720p settings.

All sums up, it worked out cheaper for me compared to all other providers.
I might have 2 or 3 times issues with service down (upgrading local exchanges to fiber cabs) but to be honest I can recall last time it was down. Quality of connections is great as I am using Amazon video, Netflix and NOW TV at the same time doing online gaming.
Never been charged for anything relating to broadband and service is never caped
I also have SSE fiber and it is tad bit slower than TT on same advertised service.
Relatives have Virgin and it slows down at peak times nights and weekends.
My contract is just up and Talk Talk does not offer as good as deal when you sing up so I will have to eat up that one. I used to have O2 (bought by Sky) and it has been flawless as well.
I guess it is best to ask about who has most reliable service in your area by chatting with neighbors and stick to that. No point getting great deal with service provider that has poor infrastructure in your areas.
Customer service is on the down side as it is call out center outside of UK. But should you escalate problem it always has gone to UK clling center and tech have been really good.
At the end it worked for me, happily 5th year trouble free broadband.
Hope this was helpful to someone.

so just cancelled sky bb and phone after 13.5 years and looking at bb. if not talk talk then who plusnet or virgin?
I had sky fibre pro so looking for equivalent
​Virgin Media would be my suggestion...but they do throttle
so who doesnt throttle?
according to virgin live chat they dont throttle (not that i believe them but ....)
​Sky claim they don't.

had sky just cancelled due to costs £41 for fibre pro and phone line per month

talktalk after cashback would be £24 pm over the course of 18 months

Existing Talkalk Broadband customers - Today's the last day to take up the FREE UPGRADE

Choosing your free upgrade is easy - simply log in to My Account, but please remember, you’ll need to log in from your TalkTalk home internet connection. You have until 7th JANUARY to make your selection, then you can enjoy even more value with TalkTalk, and you won’t have to pay a penny for it. Once your free upgrade comes to an end, we’ll remove it from your account with no strings attached.

I've just activated the 3 months Sky Sports Upgrade:
You added Sky Sports - 3 months for no extra cost.
Your boost will be available for you to enjoy within 10 mins. Some calling Boosts could take up to 24 hours - but don't worry we will send you an email when your Boost will be ready to use.
In 3 months time, we'll simply remove it from your account with no strings attached.
Enjoy and thank you for being a TalkTalk Customer
The TalkTalk Team


Today's the last day - Once it's gone - It's gone!

But it is up now
Only down if you're using a vpn
Because the service they provide is rubbish. Been trying to log onto my account today, but the wesiye is down and the online chat is unavailable.
Done... sky sports:D:D

Apparently the freebie is different for all customers based on your current package with them. I only have the basic tv service with no add-ons, already got the free sim, am able to do a service health check on my system better than the engineers they've sent in the past so that leave me a tv upgrade...no, not sky sports free for three months, but pictuebox, a movie service with approx 60 movies, yes, 60 movies in their library with more being added all the time.
So if you've been lucky enough to be offered the sky sports freebie, well done...
Never had a problem with customers services.find the Philippines based call centre better than the Indian one. One week again started my 3 months free sky sports via webpage no problem. Via call centre changed my lads sim only deal to 2Gb data 800mins talk time unlimited txt all for £8 a month. Hot from me
I didn't say the customer service was good. No strings for me.. Sorry
Sorry for a cold vote, but apparently there are the very "strings attached" to this 'Thank You offer'. The only way to get the desired 12 months Free Anytime Calls Boost for me and for many other customers was to Renew my contract and do the best to haggle down the costs of package elements.
Had some awful run ins with talk talk. Their customer service is some of the worst I've experienced, finally switching internet provider away from this train wreck.

I got the same offer but decided not to take one of the sweeteners. They really should have offered a cashback offer for loyal customers. I joined Talktalk about three years ago and I have had so many problems it's not worth continuing whatever sweeteners they offer. Their customer service is laughable. I just missed out on the last Sky Broadband & Line Rental package but luckily I have just signed up for their latest one. Going through Quidco I also get £80 cashback, a M&S £50 voucher and save £10 a month over Talktalk's offer for existing customers. It's worth checking out other offers before taking a sweetener from a 2nd rate supplier.
So was you an existing customer who has just cancelled their contract and set up another. If so did you exit your existing contract early without fees? Only asking becaus I was thinking of doing the same and they tell me I have to buy out my existing contract. Thanks.
I was out of contract. My contract expired a few months ago, and I didn't realise until I saw my bank statement and the cost had doubled. I was fed up with Talktalk because of the poor speeds and their customer service is a joke.
You'll need to weigh up how much it will cost you to exit your contract and the savings you can make with another supplier.
Tbh I am happy with their service and broadband speeds and don't want to leave but basically I am on month 13 of an 18 month contract with £131 remaining, I phoned because I was told after month 12 to phone and they may be able to sort out a discounted renewal.They offered me a £5 discount for 6months then reverting to £34 a month but if I leave and then renew as a new customer I can get broadband and line rental for £7.75 pm. Told them I am within my rights to leave with no penalties due to the security problems, she denied it and asked where I had heard that from.

Thanks yyy, did see this the other day but thought they would have offered me something decent. Cheers.

I heard for EE broadband will pay your exit contract charges to move over to them but otherwise 1pound for broadband if this is of interest.
Thanks, but am happy with talktalk service. Cheers.

just had the complimentary broadband/Wi-Fi health check, system now performs worse than before, ie constantly , losing connection,buffering and losing Wi-Fi connection to my printer. no help when I complained. utterly useless
I couldn't see the point of it anyway. Anyone with a modicum of sense can configure these things correctly nowadays

I've just received details of the sim:
Plan
Value / £0.00 a month for 12 months
(£5.00 a month thereafter)
100 minutes
250 texts
200MB of data
Contract length: 30 days
All call charges to service numbers beginning with 084/087/09 and 118 will consist of 2 parts; an access charge and a service charge. Our access charge is 7.5p per min from TalkTalk landlines and 25p per min from TalkTalk mobiles
Apparently you will get an email? when you have used 75% of your allowance
Hum, thought this was a good move on their part. Just tried to get the free upgrade but the web site isn't working.
Phoned up and explained the web site doesn't allow you to take up the offers at the moment. The chap didn't seem that interested and explained I could take one of the offers over the phone. He did explain that web site would be working on 19th December in which case you have a 13 day window to get the boost online .....
You say 'threaten to leave'. Was that INSIDE your contract or outside ? Just I've got 6 months left. And I would try the same but I assume I will get a £70 cancellation fee if I cancel regardless.

I was gona move to talktalk but quidco didnt track and never got the vouchers. Decided to move back to virgin, they offered me 19.99 for 50meg bb and phone line with weekend calls.
TalkTalk are garbage: bare-faced lies by customer service reps – that’s when their replies are even decipherable, permanently deleted primary e-mail address, charged for higher broadband service than receiving, frequent dropouts,. After recent Black Friday offer I emailed Dido Harding direct to complain. A manager phoned me back and actually told me they do not care about current customers, only about attracting new customers. Also told me when I was on hold for 2hours for Black Friday deal I had no chance as they had already sold their available packages and just left me hanging there. I could still be there now…
dont go with talktalk im with them now and how wrong i was really dont go with them pay the £5 more to go with someone els !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No Internet is better than talk talk, awful awful company

whats wrong with there internet ? all you do is pay a bill and get internet and phone .. they use the same lines and sky and BT so there is no differs in quality its just there call center... witch you call once to get and once to leave


Nooooo Sky you get 10 up and talk talk you're lucky to get 2. Router is ****, customer service is ****, tv is ****
I would not bother with Talk Talk have been with them for some years (used to be with Tiscali) . They had the hacking in November (the third time they had been hacked) . Now this week a lot of my emails (to Tiscali address) are either taking a couple of days to reach me or I am not getting them at all. If you want more information have a look at the number of complaints on the Talk Talk community forum
