I have had this since October. I pay £29 a month for broadband + youview TV box. Regular download speed is about 250M but more if I use an ethernet cable. Sky broadband is woeful around here and virgin cable was £30pm for 50M fastest speed if you were lucky.

You don't need to buy out your contract they will let you leave without penalty if you have speed or other issues. Just open a complaint and then demand to leave.

How much cost after 24 months contract? How much it without line rental? Thanks.

Bought out at least once? Where did you get that from?

To be be factually correct they split from Carphone Warehouse about 5-6 years to become an independent telco company. Still ultimately owned by the same majority shareholder though.

Lets be frank and honest, they’re not the best ISP but certainly not the worst. Customer service has consistently improved over the last 3 years (other big ISPs perform worse in reputable surveys) and their network is a lot more stable. Less customer churn each year as well i believe. If you wanted the best then go to Zen Internet who have a limited footprint and charge more.

Or - why don’t you just say you’ve had a bad experience which has left a bad taste so you want to stick the knife in!

Has this tracked for you yet? Mine is still at £0 ...


Yes mine is still on zero as well, I am hoping it will uplift to £100 when confirmed.

I phoned Talktalk up to tell them I was staying with my existing supplier as they offered Fibre with line rental at £20 (they actually offered me it, at £24). The Talktalk lady said once my service goes live, ring them the next day to upgrade to Fibre at £25 a month, when they will also put a £90 credit on my account to cover the 18 months of £5. I assume it will be an 18 month contract with Fibre instead of the 12 with Broadband

They denied the anytime calls included in the deal ever existed. Told them I want to cancel. Next guy on retentions then apologised and tried to add it into my account for £3. 50 a month which further infuriated me. So yes I cancelled my line after 19 days.

Was getting half the speeds I was guaranteed when I signed up too which also swayed my decision to leave this joke of a company. Now I understand why all the hate towards TT

Same here. People talk a load of boll***s about TalkTalk when in reality they know nothing at all about it. I've been through most ISPs at some point or other over the years and TalkTalk's no worse than any other. Infinitely better than BT too, and a lot cheaper.

I'm with SSE broadband. 76mb download speed, around 20mb upload all for around £20 including line rental with unlimited downloads etc. The only problem with it is that SSE does throttle my connection during peak hours but this is easy avoidable using a VPN. So overall not bad.

I Took the time and went to Curry's today; Was going for it till I realised I was taking out an 18 month Contract and then I
got cold feet, with all my troubles with Sky & BT this last three years when I was wronged and could not leave until the 12 months contract was up; I feel myself no matter who I go with they will stiff me somehow, but at least it will be for the 12 months only.

3 years of cutting signal which they insisted was a problem with the house, it hasnt occurred in over 10 years with BT though, they will just do anything to pass the blame one and insisted it would cost to send a technician to the house to check the line. I wasted hours with their customer service about the missing internet connection, it was impossible to download anything stably. their only suggestions for fixing were to spend more money, the only fix turned out to be finding a company that doesn't have the reputation of a pile of manure.

if you need a stable connection at any time of day outside the hours of 5-6am then you need to go with a company not affiliated with talk talk, the cost of time wasted with customer service will never be worth any money you save.

I believe providers are obliged to state the minimum speed that can be reasonably expected to be achieved. As TT decline to provide a service less than 2Mbps, the default minimum speed provided by TT is 2Mbps. Suggest there is some ambiguity / misintepretation of service spec. TBH if you can see the exchange from your property and there are no bizarre cabling routes you should reasonably expect an ADSL sync speed somewhere near 20Mbps.

AndyRoyd50 m ago

OP deal TT £25 "Faster Fibre" = max 38Mbps. Additional £5/month for max 7 …OP deal TT £25 "Faster Fibre" = max 38Mbps. Additional £5/month for max 76Mbps where available.2Mbps ADSL would normally be a result of the customer's physical distance from the exchange and not throttling by the service provider. Different system with fibre where typically for TT the max speed is dictated by the customer's distance from the (significantly nearer) street box, not the exchange.

If you click the box to upgrade you get the message:

Great News!
You can now record all channels from any of our TV Boosts as well as continuing to pause, skip backwards and forwards while watching your favourite channels in the TalkTalk Player


I've just got the basic box, so now that I've upgraded to the Sky Sports package I'm going to contact them to ask if I'll get a new box to allow me to record.

A bit of a issue for me is that Sky Sports News is not included in the Sky Sports package. I know it's not a premium channel, but to my mind it should be included.

Just to add that I contact TalkTalk via live chat and they said I'd have to pay £25 extra for a TV Plus box to allow me to record programmes. I pointed out that I was shown a message that never mentioned an extra charge, but they would not budge.

Talk talk are the worst company ever, customer service is shockingly shite that's when you can understand them!!!!!

Edited by: "Robbo11" 25th Aug 2017

For info, if you already own a BT youview+ box, you can record your TalkTalk Sky Sports TV boost channels ok without the need to install TalkTalk's TV boxes. So unless you really need two boxes that can record, you could just opt for the free TalkTalk lite box with your TV boost.

Yes. You can add TalkTalk TV to your plan at any time in My Account. TalkTalk TV lets you pick & mix your perfect TV package with a range of flexible TV boosts, all with just a 1 month commitment so you’re never tied into lengthly contracts.

FREE TV Plus Box offer applies when taken with the TV Starter Boost (at £5 per month). Features pause and rewind (for up to 2 hours), record (up to 180 Standard Definition hours), access to around 80 Freeview channels, 7 day catch up (available for certain channels only and not all programmes available on channels where catch up is available), and access to TV Boosts and on demand content. Freeview channels are subject to location and other factors. Please see Freeview for more information. You need to connect your TalkTalk TV Box to the internet and your TV aerial."

at talktalk.co.uk/sho…-tv - which I read as that the contract length of the existing plan remains, but that the TV service just gets added onto it.

Of course, I am happy to be corrected if there's something in the terms to the contrary that I've missed.

I would check first that you are not entering into a new 18 month contract I been with talk talk for years and i find them great but when you do have to phone in for anything then its at least a 30 min call to sort out anything

By the way any one with a talk talk account can get a free sim deal that gives you 200 min , unlimited text , 200 MB data a month for free while you are with them , great if your not a heavy user

The extra channels, IE sky starter boost, entertainment, sports, kids or movies boost are minimum 1 month commitment, by taking the stb you will be committing to a long term contract. IE 18 or 24 month.

You'll be tied into an 18 or 24 month contract pal. Hope this helps.

That seems a lot. I'm currently paying £32pm for fibre, anytime (not international), Caller Display, Call Divert, Call Waiting, Reminder Call, Ringback, and Three Way Call. The Call Divert works particularly well with the anytime calls - no forwarding costs at all.

Whether you can negotiate effectively will depend on whether or not you're out of contract. If you are, you should be in a very good position.

TalkTalk's much criticised by people who've never used it. Those of us who have know it to be somewhat better than BT, and much on a par with Plusnet. None of them can match Zen - but they don't match Zen prices, either. Check out the reviews - BT's reviews are rather worse than those of TalkTalk.

​They may have some ports free or will be available soon. You could be cheeky and call back to discount your total package to £25.

​Same here, my missus has 2 months left to go on her BT contract. Line Rental is all paid up and the monthly bill is £9.50. Rang up and they wanted £150 to cancel it and if any new provider wanted to use that line it would be classed as cancellation and didnt even offer an incentive to stay. Went through talktalk and insisted i needed a new line and cancelled today to try and get the cashback now its like £150. Cancelled easy as pie and well cant ask for a new line to be put in online so scuppered that. But got in touch with BT put it in my name and having a new line put in, so 58gb plus the basic tv and phone after paying the line rental saver and other chargers gets it to the equivalent of £33 a month. Hopefully the Topcashback will track and the £100 card will appear but its only what we were going to pay with talktalk. And honestly the negative reviews of talktalk plus it being an 18 month contract swayed me back to BT.

Above package comes in at £27 for me, fibre activation is £25 on thier website not £50, TV box usually is free. And faster fibre, what is that about except fibre rebranded as Faster Fibre, its still up to 38mbs.



Select the speed boost option, it takes it to £32 and 76Mb,

I don't really get the Faster Fibre bit though as surely Fibre should be 38Mb and Faster Fibre be 76Mb

Yup. Three, EE and O2 signal around here is shocking so we have no choice but to use the home phone. Latest BT bill came in at £68 thanks to internet & line rental, plus £2.50 for evening & weekend calls and then calls made outside that time.

At £37 a month all in for everything, it's a no brainer than BT can't come close to and unfortunately when you're almost halving your bill its a chance I'll have to take

Shame on you, Virgin.



Try the "cable my street" page on their site and try to encourage as many residents beside you to do the same, you never know.

After years of being a loyal TT customer I have finally decided to leave. They are going the same way as what Cable & Wireless did before they lost all their customers - once signed up they will start offering less and charge more for the renewal of contract. Also TT have no clue as to what customer service is all about.

Talk talk are increasing all there prices from December this yr so if you do take anything off them ask for it to be locked in so means no price increases for 18 months. Also worth noting all contracts are 18 months including adsl

I have it and the wifi is crap keeps dropping out all time think it's the box but not been replaced, wish I'd stayed with virgin had it since June worse luck so another 14 months with them

Maybe worth moving to York for, if you want bragging rights for speed like that - I mean, it's a lot less hassle than moving to South Korea (another place where I think they have those sort of speeds!)
