If you like having your internet drop out completely, often and at random, and having customer support tell you they've run a line test and nothing is wrong before hanging up, then this is the service for you

I have just renewed my contract for the 4th time so I could be called a satisfied customer, others might call me something else.
The speed isn't very good and has deteriorated but is average for this area. A neighbour some 400 yds away has fibre but it is not available for my address!


TalkTalk's main downfall is when you have to contact Customer services as you end up stressed and annoyed. You have wasted time and got exactly nowhere.
I tried to avail myself of the £17 per month deal as my contract was about to expire and as a TalkTalk customer I understood deals were available to both new and existing customers .

This is not true.
From a site like this or any comparison website you click on the deal and are then transferred to TalkTalk who then know you are an exsisting customer and you are then offered " the best available deal for you" which is £18.95. I have spent nearly an hour "chatting" and dealt with three agents who persist that my deal is the cheapest available and that new customers and existing ones are treated equally..........
Broadband .co.uk also state this is true and it is down as one of the advantages of using TalkTalk.

Dreadful service. The people seem helpful on the phone, but when it comes to the work they produce, it is terrible and the only means of contact through this pandemic is through a community hub, what sort of nonsense is that? I have a simple problem which will take less than 5 minutes to sort out. I would never reccomend this company and would probably actively discourage people to use the service. I would rather pay more to get more.

ABSOLUTELY AWFUL. Wouldn't recommend to anyone. The customer service is appauling, forced to ring them up nearly every week because the internet speed is so slow/ not there at all. Never sort out the problem. YET THE MONTHLY PRICE HAS HEEN INCREASING. I have never been so angry at a company before. Absolutely horrible.

Worst broadband you could possibly get, unprofessional unorganised customer service no basic manners and etiquettes on how to talk to customers. Management are a disgrace and are utterly confused themselves regarding talktalk policies and rules. Staff do not even speak fluent English so is very difficult to communicate especially when they are sat on the other side of the world

Unbelievably bad!I cancelled my talk talk account over a month ago and still getting charged for the service! I phoned customer service and they were really unhelpful and then I get put through to the customer service manager who you think would put things right and she didn't! I'll never recommend talk talk to anyone, whatever you do stay well clear of them. All they want is more of your money and even thats not enough.

Been with talk talk for the past few yrs even knowing that talk talk is not good. Upgraded to fibre on May 11th 2017. Got message that it will be live from 22nd of May 2017. Never received the router for fibre broadband. Kept ringing them for the new router and been told that one will be sent few days before the fibre goes live. Never happened withn the time period. Kept ringing two to four times a week and everytime the customer services is from a different country and they don't have a clue at all. Got an email on 11th of July saying my fibre is live and got disconnected from the internet. Internet stopped working, no new router. Had to ring every day two to three times but no straight answer. Atlast after a two months and one week, upon very fierce arguments reiterating how we are losing our patients and income as professionals they sent an engineer from BT who came and checked the outside lines to say that everything is fine. Then we have to ring again and request for a new router which was sent after two days. Very horrible customer services and customer relations. No one in customer services work with a brain.

I am going to switch to another provider immediately

Internet goes off every 10 mins, customer service staff dont know what they are talking about and can not even speak English we told them we needed a engineer and they said no there is nothing wrong with the line at last we got a engineer out he said there is a fault with the line, phoned back up they still insisted there is nothing wrong also tried charging us £50 for engineer coming out.

They told us we would be getting no less then 7.5 Mbps we are not even getting 5 Mbps, we told them they had broke there T&C but they said there will be a £9 charge per month left on the contract so we told them to canal it and we will pay the money (total of £66)


PERFECT COMPANY OF YOU LIKE YOUR INTERNET CUTTING OFF EVERY 10 MINS

Pay that bit more and go with a good company.!!!!!!!

was on a 18 month contarct at our first flat. then we decided to move house and was tricked into thinking that we were on the same plan but instead our price gone up by £8 and the plan was renewed. absolutly disgusted with the way they treated me and hope they get whats coming to them. DONT GET TALK TALK
TalkTalk  
DO NOT EVEN CONTEMPLATE USING TALKTALK the customer service is absolutely DIABOLICAL, THE absolute worst customer service experience in my entire life. The advisors are barely understandable and extreamly rude. They don't update their data systems and you end up repeating your self untill you feel suicidal. These people are the most un professional, unorganised and incompetent customer service team I have ever had the misfortune of doing business with and I am thankful that I will never have to deal with them again. UNBEARABLE DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY.

Less than 'guaranteed' speed of 1.7mbps and wants £75 for me to end the contract!! Embarassment
TalkTalk  
Nothing can describe my disappointment and anger from my experience with using talk talk I honestly hate how the connection is at a minimum state whenever I use it I download things at 1mb/s when it is ment to do 30mb/s. Also I like to play a lot of game so I need to use internet to play online however whenever I go online I can get kick out of the game because I have lost connection. Although ethernet is an alternative I don't want to have wires to connect everything together also the bad internet isn't just on my phone or console it's even bad on my laptop which I use next to the router this frustration is what led me to make this review.

I would recommend to next buy or consider. Better service provider are out there that just charge a little more.

Disgusting customer service I found out last week after spending months trying to access my online account that they had raised my bill in October 2015 I had no notification and the man I spoke to this morning admitted that he could see from the system that no notification was sent. A manager I spoke to yesterday was very rude and sarcastic and told me it was my fault that I didn't know about the price increase and that I was liable for finding things out for myself because I joined up online. He tried to tell me I hadn't spoken to anyone when signing up which is a lie as I didn't want to go in blind they are refusing to let me leave without paying a cancellation fee which I think is disgusting I told them that if they couldn't be bothered to send me notification of a price increase (during a fixed contract) then I can't be bothered to pay a cancellation fee all I keep getting is we can lower your bill for the rest of your contract blah blah no help no compassion they need shutting down in my opinion
TalkTalk  
Poor customer service, kicking you to the other colleagues constantly. Let you spend the whole day with no problem solved, waiting on hold for at least 2 hours. Charging and charging. Can't get rid of it once you order a braodband services.
Rubbish.

The WiFii shouldn’t be allowed to sell to customers,,
It cuts out for no reason
It’s bad for money
It’s had so many bad reviews
It’s pointless
my mobile date is what I use 9 times out of 10 when I’m at home
Should have stuck with BT defo
TalkTalk  
This is one of the worst internet connection I’ve ever used, it constantly freezes or stops working for no reason and it won’t load the pages even when you are connected it will just keep coming up with timed out because the connection is so slow. I would not recommend this broadband to anyone, the customer service is almost as bad.

Worst provider ever. plus tv package ties you down for 24months. initially before apparantly agreeing to this i was receiving 14mb. Ever since recieving 1.9mb. The youview box is slow and rarely works as the internet speed is so slow. Impossible to leave mid-contract as the only way to void contract is to have an unresolved ticket open for 28days. every time you complain the agent just closes the ticket anyway so you can never achieve this. every time i have phoned customer service the least amount of time i have been on hold is 15minutes. Would recommend anyone looking to join should go sky or bt instead

Countless problems with both internet and phone line. Takes hours to using phone to actually speak to anyone and they hang up and have to start all over again. Same happens with talktalk chat they just disconnect you and you have to start all over again. I also recieved 16 cold calls in the one day. When i used who called me it says it talktalk sales team. How idiotic can you be when i am already a customer. If you cancel payment because it doesn't work they threaten you with debt collectors. Sales teams are UK based but if you have any issues all technical help and complaints is India and they are near impossible to understand. They are also rude and if you as soon as you get a bit wound up with the slow progress they just disconnect you. Amateur outfit. DO NOT USE TALKTALK!!!

One lesson I learnt from talk talk is to check reviews before using a service. AWFUL!

Worst broadband provider ever, bad customers support, takes 1hour to only Ask when they will finaly connect my fibre broadband which i bought half Year ago and have only 3,7mbs speed. All the time testing line and telling to wait 48 hrs, then test again, upgrading router, wait 48hrs, booking appointments with engineer which comes on wrong day or not come at all... Told on online chat that i wants to cancel my broadband with them and they didnt answer. Im going to report them and apply for money refund for this very very nad service. AVOID THIS COMPANY!!!!
TalkTalk  
Avoid, avoid, avoid. Agents don’t speak very well English, enough to understand that the connection is slow and not working. Put on hold for 15 minutes only to then be put on hold again with no solution! Then rather than fix the issue, they came we are connected to too many devices. We were only connect to 1!

Rubbish ....don't even try contacting them ...I tried to call 11 times....it's a money making racquet ...

Shocking customer service. Defer rather than problem solve. Strongly recommend to pay s few extra pounds for another service.

Almost as good as my toaster.
TalkTalk  
It is by far the worst broadband customer service ever. Its complete waste of time making them understand English.They are getting paid no not do there jobs properly. I have rang loads of times and still after that and still the same problem. They really are a disgrace company with customer service, they might get one right here and there with there customers but seriously I have rang countless of times and still in the same boat with them. I will never ever use there service again I rather have nothing then use them again I will never turn to talk talk again and I hope one day someone sorts this customer service out and get all staff to do there Job properly
TalkTalk  
I do not usually write reviews but the level of frustration and confusion of dealing with Talk Talk customer service and the poor internet speed, compelled me to warn others to avoid getting into a contract with them. The process of leaving is also incredibly painful. I have spent hours on the phone, pasted from pillar to post by incompetent people. Truly shocking, its a wonder this company still operates.

Should be able to give 0 stars. I wish I had read these reviews before attempting to switch to Talk Talk their customer service is appalling. I put all my details into the online system and was recommended a package, so chose what was recommended. Received a phone call the next day t advise me that I couldn’t have this package at my addresses. I was passed from pillar to post, having my order cancelled and supposedly starting a new one. By the time I got the fourth person on the phone, I was told I already had an order and that I couldn’t process another. It didn’t help that not one of the people I spoke to could speak English properly. I would rather pay the extra £25 a month to stay with BT.
TalkTalk  
I am thoroughly horrified by the customer service deriving from the office based in South Africa. The staff are neglectful, rude and fall far short of professional conduct. As a customer, I had to spend one hour speaking to a representative, with no attempt to offer help or to resolve my issue. It is outrageous to take so much of a customer's time and not to provide the service that is necessary.
It is no wonder that countless people are appalled by the service of Talk Talk. I would not recommend Talk Talk to anybody as it fails to treat customers with even the most basic courtesy. The incompetent service is shocking in every aspect.
TalkTalk  
Well where do I start I left sky for talk talk as the price convinced me as it was the cheapest around we have had talktalk installed 3weeks now and we have not been able to watch 5 minutes of tv and the Internet never ever works, contacted the customer service which is also APPALLING we have been without tv and Internet for 3 weeks which is affecting my work... £117 a month for nothing absolutely disgusting I strongly advise not to go with talktalk CON ARTISTS!!!!!!!
TalkTalk  
The worst broadband service theey keep Increasing the price for no reason with out acknowledging me...
