“Utter [Insert Expletive]”

published 20/10/2008

Is this a joke?

No, afraid not.

It takes a special brand of incompetence to force me back into the arms of the cretins at BT. Yet somehow Talk Talk managed to frustrate me to the point I was clawing at BT Towers' door in desperation, like a dog with a bladder infection. I moved in with my girlfriend in April, which should have...

“TALK TALK - NOT ON YOUR LIFE”

published 04/10/2006

Regular monthly payment

Rubbish Customer Services

I am not a customer of Talk Talk and after my experiences with them would never ever be. My parents who are 80 joined Talk Talk a few months ago, up to a month ago no problems. Then one morning there phone was dead, my mum called me from a phone box asking me to report it to Talk Talk for them...

“I decided to Write Write”

I dont have to use them anymore!

The staff are stupid

I had fun with Talk Talk. I wrote to them. This is the actual letter i sent. "I write with regard the above account about which you have sent me a letter, dated 04/10/06 suggesting the account is overdue. When I first heard about Talk Talk and its low cost and free broadband offer, I was a little...

When I acquired my first internet/landline service from Tiscali several years ago, I hadn't the faintest clue of how to set up either properly. Luckily back then, the help from Tiscali was just fine and everything was sorted, no problems with anything except little hiccups that are expected...

Poor estimation of demand for the service

Being a student and running my own business, not to mention making a lot of calls, i decided to take the pressure off my mum (and make life easier for her at night by not being disturbed) by getting my own phone line. Unfortunately BT are the only provider of actual telephone lines in this area...

None yet

I have spent the last couple of years looking out for any possible way to save money. It’s not that I am a skinflint, but I don’t see that point in paying over the odds for anything. I have had my phone calls with a couple of different providers who were cheaper that BT, but the 0870 numbers tend...

TalkTalk HISTORY ~~~~~~~~ Aren't there a lot of reviews on TalkTalk? That is either a very good sign or a very bad one. I'll leave you to judge. I was impressed with them when they were 'got' by the BBC consumer programme 'Watchdog'. There was a long saga concerning them and the head of TalkTalk...

I have read so many Ciao rants about TalkTalk that I felt I had to write a balanced review, so that people can make a more informed choice. I hope this helps! My experience with TalkTalk ---------------------------------------------------- I have been with TalkTalk for over 2 years. I was...

We have been with Talk Talk for about twelve months now and to be honest as a whole they have been ok really after a really bad start when I nearly told them to just disconnect me and put me back to AOL, however I will be starting a new broadband contract soon, I have decided, and it will not be...

I have been meaning to review Talktalk for a while so I will say that this review may seem rather outdated. I moved out of my last flat at the end of June 2008 so a lot could have changed since then, particularly the prices considering that this all took place before the credit crunch. Anyhoo', I...

As a few people who have read my reviews may have guessed, I spend a lot of time on the internet. One of my main problems had always been having seperate bills for both the internet and my phoneline. Plenty of places had the call services, but the problem with this was the fact that I also had to...

Talk Talk seemed like the best option for me at the time because it offered a good package and a very reasonable price. Being quite a light user I chose the "Talk Talk Plus Evening and Weekend" option. This package is made up an optional Land line rental from Talk Talk, which is marginally...
