    Tiscali

    So I'm looking around for a package deal of phone, internet and TV as at the minute I'm not on any sort of package deal and therefore I'm paying a hell of a lot more money than I need to be.

    Is anyone here got a Tiscali package at all? How would you rate any of their services?

    I know that back in the day a lot of people would compain about them but nowadays I'm sure they would have sorted out their act?

    omg i was just going to make a thread about how **** tiscali are. its been 2 days now i dont have internet and i have the broadband and phone package. apparently its free cals and only £20 a month yet the bills are coming as £40 pounds for phone.
    customer service is rubbish as your speaking to someone in india who doesnt know english. i justgot of the phone with them, its been the 4th time i call and they keep saying my supervisor will contact you.
    im on my mobile broadband now as i dont have internet. they keep cutting of the connection for maintenence and it becoming even more offen.
    im looking for a different service provider now

    For your own sanity don't go near Tiscali with a barge pole.

    Especially if you play online games, their contention ratio is dire.

    You'll find at peak times (end of school, end of work, and weekend evenings) are the worst, Tiscali allow far too many people to use the same 'pipe' so to speak and the damn thing just grinds to a halt.

    Try it at 3AM through to 3PM and it flys... really useful unless you work nights

    I've been with them for about a year (phone & broadband) and they're fine as long as you don't have to deal with customer services who are based in India and read from scripts, I've had occasion to ring them twice and both times it's been arduous to say the least, here's hoping that I never have to ring them again.

    Its just a shame that Virgin had to interfere with Blueyonder! I was so happy until Mr. Branson had his way. Is there an internet service that doesn't cap you internet at peak times like Virgin do?

    im currently searching for a package like you.
    anyone have the sky deal?

    I'm with Tiscali and never have any problems. The internet is reasonably fast for the majority of the day and night.

    However bad Tiscali are, BT are 10 times worse!
