Mine is only 250kb/s total with virgin!

What do you think of TalkTalk? As i'm thinking of changing broadband provider and TalkTalk is one of the options as they're cheap. But quite a few of the reviews i've read haven't been that good.

How do ya check?

Goto speedtest.net and run a check. I'm not a fan of speedtester sites though. You'll get a better idea of your headline rate via newsgroups or rapidshare

Changed my server from Manchester to Birmingham.

dcx_badass;5933581

Do you have a BT line? If not I think it's £60 for a line to be installed.

This is the Coventry server. Coventry is only 10miles from me.

£30??
We pay our bill to virgin.

I've never seen anyone in my patch get speeds like that with talk talk. Mind the they woudln't be reporting faults to Openreach with speeds like that. I get about 5-6 meg on my line (upto 8meg) but my ADSL is free and I'm on quite a long line 59db loss. But I'm able to look at cable prints and put my line onto the best cable to the PCP (little green box in the street).:thumbsup: Hoping to get ADSL2+ offa BT soon

Another happy customer here, only been with them 3 weeks, got free connection , £50 cashback and free router.

Speed is stable 24/7, i ve asked to be put on a different profile so it should max out at 8mb soon

I would check if you exchange is near capacty tho as i think thats where people get problems:

I'm on a 24FSNR6 profile now after requesting it yesterday. My line is weird my house is about 13 years old (new estate) but my house wasn't supposed to be built so the line is split off my neighbours, for dial up this was really bad, I would only connect at 27kbps BT put line boost (?) on and I managed to get 38kbps but that was it, then when broadband came about my line loved it and has been amazing. And my dads house is a new build so his line is 18 months old and is a good line aswell, but not quite as good as mine.


Sounds like you had ]DACS. I get tempted to move to a ADSL2+ provider, but can't justify paying for my broadband, no matter how fast. WBC (BT ADSL2+) is in my exchange it's getting moved ont it thats the problem

how do you know what profile you are on currently?

also, can you call to request or is it thru the forums?

if i upgrade with the £4 a month will they sort the speed out themselves?

do you work for talktalk?

You can only get the speed boost if you sync at 8meg, if you go to the forums they can tell you what profile you are on and tweek it if they can

upload is poo but rest ain't too bad I guess

If Talk Talk give you a decent chunk of the free 8mb you'd still be able exceed your download limit in around a day and a half.

So presumably you're paying the extra £4 a month for the improved upstream rate (and not just so's you can boast ;-))?

dcx_badass;5934266

No I have that upload speed without paying on the 8meg anyway, that … No I have that upload speed without paying on the 8meg anyway, that doesn't change when you pay. I like having the added speed as I download quite alot and like been able to get something quickly when I choose.



So what rates did you Talk Talk guys get on the 8mb? (I'm with Tiscali and thinking I might change).

Lol - I just looked at the Rapid Share speeds on you're first post - I think they confuse kbs and KBs - I'd pay £25 a month for those speeds :thumbsup:

On talk talk 8 meg I got the full thing.The rapidshare speeds I posted were copy and pasted from my download manager (free download manager).Unless you were refering to kb and KB or whatever it is.



Yeah - I was just commenting on them confusing bits n bytes - wasn't doubting the speeds you're giving (since we know we're all talking in bits).

Thanks for the speed infos - I'll do some checks on my Tiscali line when I get home...

Trust me you can't get those speeds over adsl of any kind
