Broadband disconnects several times an hour, the only help you can get is to call, all the online forms are disabled, the only option for help I get is to upgrade to fibre! renewing 18 month contract.

Bradford TalkTalk  
Worst broadband ever had better wifi speeds in a tiki hut with a wooden router powered by a hamster wheel in the amazon rainforest. My gran could run faster than talktalk download speed absolute rip off don't ever give them any money because they don't deserve it. I pray that they become bankrupt and homeless because of all the wifi problems I encountered. Have a nice day :)

Sheffield TalkTalk  
I have no words to describe this company. Often the speed drops below the guaranteed and frequent deficiencies in the supply of internet ... By calling the helpline every time they have to restart the router. I am glad that I moved to another company ...

Eccleston TalkTalk  
I have only been with talk talk for three months and im sorry i ever signed with them. With a terrible 4.2mbps and a regular cut offs every hour of the day i cant believe how they can justify taking money for a product that simply is 10 years old. They claim that i have super fibre optic but i disagree. 3 engineers have been to my house to try resolve this but each time theres always a resolve which indeed doesnt make a difference. 2 routers later and still no resolve im currently pushing to cancel and get compensations for the 3months of a none usable product in my case..
I must add that if you do try and conact talk talk they're going to try everything to make up poor excuses i.e. your router is to close to your tv or you may have a loose cable theyve even asked me to perform my own tests, opening up the cable box, so now im a technician.... this is absolutely discusting as i think of all the OAPs that actually end up performing these home made tests!!! All in all i think talk talk is a joke of a company and should actually be looked into by trading standards.. DO NOT SIGN UP WITH THEM would be the main review here
Liverpool TalkTalk  
The worst broadband service in uk, every single day lost the connection few minutes several time, worst customer service ever, I recently changed to sky, much much better
New malden TalkTalk  
What a big pile of steamy crap myself and my whole family have had with them trouble from day one trying to connect to internet had to have an engineer out 3 times, they tried to charge for this but with arguments wasnt in the end, then was over charged on more than one occation and was hell to get refund on that. When cancelling thethe whole thing was agreed no cost would occur and oh look £304.22 out my bank and after a long hour and 22mins on the phone agreed to refund. Not easy not helpful just a load of crap and have lost alot of customers definitely better being with BT no issues at all with them

Banbury TalkTalk  
TalkTalk are total rubbish here. Download speed of 13.81MBPS. Upload registering at 0.27. In fact this is optimistic. I was getting about 1 Megabyte per minute (yes, per minute! 0.02MBPS and taking hours to upload a modest video.

Rosyth TalkTalk  
Signal strength too low to use. Many, many calls to resolve and been put on hold or passed around for over an hour each time without resolving issue. Engineers unable to fix. Asked to close account due to paying for a service that doesn't work and told to pay over £200. Eventually told we can leave without any further issues or payment, only to then receive final demands for more money. They then tell you you must have had a service up until it was cancelled, after all the many hours spent previously trying to resolve. They are appalling, and safe to say, the worst company by far we have ever dealt with!!!

I wouldn't normally leave a review but the service i'm getting is absolutely dreadful. My signal constantly comes and goes and customer service is of no help/ don't even listen to you. I have had several calls to them regarding the broken service with no results. I will definitely not be using talk talk again.

Glasgow TalkTalk  
Talk Talk are one of the worst service providers I have ever dealt with.

In addition to delays and only receiving half the speed promised, the customer service center is beyond bad. The agents clearly read from a script, no one captures call notes and you're fed misinformation and lies.

They may be cheap but it's definitely worth going with a provider that is slightly more expensive to avoid having to deal with their customer service center.

London TalkTalk  
I was on a medium fibre package which, for the most part, was fine in terms of speed and reliability.
However.
The customer service and overall competency of this company is so pathetic that even if i was getting lightning speeds 24/7 i wouldn't be happy to stay with Talktalk. They are infuriatingly useless over the phone and also on their live chats, they don't offer solutions to problems, never explain issues clearly, and 9 times out of 10 don't follow through on what they'll say they will do to help you. Save your sanity and go elsewhere.

ROCHESTER TalkTalk  
I cancelled my old contract to re open in my name, been having issues ever since. First off it took them a month to activate my ‘go live date’ then emailed saying it’s ready to go only to find there’s more issues with the line. Although we had their services before and it was fine . The customer services team are very unhelpful and don’t seem to care. Strongly advise to avoid even if their speeds are very good

York TalkTalk  
Avoid this company like the plague. Even after leaving their dreadful broadband service they kept sending us bill. Once of the tricks of this disgusting company is to insist you pay by cheque. So, if the cheque is late (and suprize it often is) you get charged another 10 pounds! This is a truly trashy company. Dont be tempted by their cheap offers. You get what you pay for!

London, UK TalkTalk  
Horrible company full of horrible staff, rude and incompetent.. received incorrect information every time i had to call and when i disagreed with what they were telling me they were very rude! even the managers had an attitude.. on one call the colleague put me on hold for over half and hour, eventually hung up and called back and was told the colleague had left the office for the day, raised a complaint and was told i would not be reimbursed for call costs.. in the 12 months i have been with talktalk they broke nearly every code of practice they vow to uphold and didnt seem to care less when i raised the issues

Bury TalkTalk  
Talk talk are the worst company I have ever known. The customer service is shocking. The only good point about the company was it was cheap but u couldn't give it away now that we realise how bad the company is. They changed the install days 3 times, then they canceled our contract with out telling us we was on the phone to them for 3 hours getting passed around . We finally got it all up and running but the tv doesn't work its constantly has no signal and the picture is pixelated every 20 seconds. We rang them they said it was our problem with the aerial yet we've had it checked and it's fine. They want £450 off us to cancle the contract, they want money out of us when we arnt even getting what we are paying for. The website is never working the app is never working. Maybe talk talk should concentrate on fixing your problems rather then advertising your services cheap to get more customers, if u kept your customers happy they wouldn't need to leave you, I woudlnt recommend this company to my worse enemy :) if you want a hassle free tv and Internet go with sky yeah you pay more but u honestly get what you pay for, once our contract ends with talk talk we will never return and I will make sure none of my friends or family use them. I'm a hairdresser so I will also make sure my clients never use them!!!

Catterick garrison TalkTalk  
The old adage of getting what you pay for certainly rings true for TalkTalk. I was lulled into a false sense of value when i decided to switch to this ISP, as they were offering the same speed as my previous provider but at roughly £7.50 cheaper per month. This lower price is all well and good, however due to their faulty routers, of which I have had 2 replacements, and poor service, i found i was often left without reliable internet and would have much preferred a slower speed and stable connection. Overall i'd say if you are considering TalkTalk because you want a reliable fast connection, you should consider spending the extra cash to use BT or Sky. Further to this, the customer service from TalkTalk is appalling, they will do anything to shirt responsibility, and save themselves money wherever possible. Their basic "super routers" are prone to failure as their help forums can testify, however if you want a reliable router, so as to have a stable connection, in their "TalkTalk Hub" they will try and charge you £30 for the privilege. I would wholly recommend anyone to steer clear.

Worcester TalkTalk  
Talk Talk broadband was definitely cheaper than it's competitors but I wouldn't recommend it to any online gamer, anybody streaming some sorts of video or even anyone who wants to check his email...in fact I wouldn't recommend it no one ,even my worst enemies. My story with talk talk was endless resetting router in order to get some internet connection and for some very strange reasons this device developed skills to disconnect me from internet in least appropriate moment. It nearly resulted in throwing my remote control through my TV (and I like my TV). Going for this broadband supplier will cut you off internet completely so if you thinking of stopping gaming it's right deal for you...

Leeds TalkTalk  
Had great service up until trying to cancel, lying about cancelations, placing me on hold for an age in the hope I would give up trying to cancel. Taking all my details only to pass me on to someone else and say they can't do my request after spending 10 minutes discussing my cancellation etc.

Won't be recommending these again

Their modus operandi if you have an issue with your broadband is to blame the phone company. They will pass on the issue to them, after a protracted period of checking the line. Fair play, they have sent me a new router when I needed one fairly promptly, but trying to get help from them is a real chore. The webmail service they provide is also objectionably bad, with a poor search option, general unreliability and horrible presentation. I'm also spammed by all these tabloid helplines everytime I use them.

Avoid, broadband was always inconsistent on connectivity compared to the post office who is cheaper but a much better service. When I was disconnected they charged me a month I didn't use an late payment because I cancelled my direct debit there's no understanding whatsoever they will say anything for your money but aren't interested when your unhappy with there service. Won't ever go back again

Ilminster TalkTalk  
The first week of having talktalk broadband was excellent, fast speeds and good reliability. But about 2 months later I would get download speeds of 0.10mbps and an upload speed of about 0.15mbps. To have a higher upload speed than download bemuses me. Definitely moving elsewhere, probably going to get EE broadband as I've heard they are good and reliable.

Wouldn't recommend anyone getting TalkTalk absolute shambles of a business

Broadband speed drops to 1-2 Mbps between 18.00 and 23.00. Upload speed is appalling all the time 0.4-0.7 Mbps. Surely this can be monitored my Talk Talk and a rebate on your bill paid back monthly.

I was one of TalkTalk customers.I havent been a customer since a year Jaunary since their broadband speed is terrible.
I found out after one year TalkTalk charges £36.95 per month now comes up to £547.86
Now TalkTalk they are messing around and avoiding to refund the amount.
When you switch to TalkTalk think before doing so.

London TalkTalk  
With deep regret and sadness I am writing this review. I joined talktalk to save money but I am losing money big time. I constantly have problems with my mobile internet connection and home broadband. It is becoming really frustrating now and I get uncomfortable even to report any problem because to them. I want to come out of the contract because I am not getting the service I am paying for but I was quoted ridiculous money to pay before I can get out. The problem is the mobile internet might not work for days and suddenly comes up. The same thing with mu broadband. I have called several times and they will carry out the stupid test they claim to carry out and still the problem remains. They sent the engineer to my house and the engineer could see the problem and escalated it. BT engineer came and realised that there was a problem outside in the cable box and worked on it for the broadband to work. After some hours it went back to the old on and off internet. Guess what? I suddenly realised that I was charged £50 extra on top of bill for the engineer that came for the problem that I am still having and just fed up of calling them. When I called TalkTalk, I spent so much time from one section to another section for the problem to be solved. Within a week or two, TalkTalk make sure they charged me this extra for the data I do not even enjoy and so many months I don't use up to half of the data. Presently, I have to pay over £50 because they claimed that the mobile data has been overused less than a day. They are so quick to cut you off until they get the money they believe you have exceeded but difficult to fight this with them because they only know how they calculate the ridiculous data. My neighbour told me that they can not provide super fibre they are charging me for in my area as their exchange is more than a mile to where I am leaving and TalkTalk knows this but they promised me that if I pay extra for super fibre I will get fast internet connection. This is a big lie as it is even worst now to connect to the internet than before I signed for super fibre. How can I get out of this legalised robbery as I am not getting what I am paying for? and they are not ready to tell me the truth. When I get the internet connection on my broadband it is less or around 8MB even at super fibre contact and just the same as I was getting before I started paying extra for super fibre. I was promised up to 24MB but never get 10MB since. My new contract runs out early 2016 but I don't know how I'm going to wait till then having 3 mobile lines for the family and broadband as well. Can someone pls help!!!!!!!1

I joined talk talk 2 months ago. Then I got a message saying there will be changes to the international booster rates added on my account. Firstly, I joined them because I could use the international booster they provide to make calls to family in Nigeria. When I joined, I was told the cost will not change as long as I had a contract. Please don't join this company, they cannot be trusted. They are only after your money

Don't waste your money on a broadband which disconnects when it rains. And as for the tv. It takes so long to turn on, a snail with crutches goes faster.

Their tv is just a glorified freeview box.

All i can say is dont get yourself attracted by the cheap prices. Talk talk gives stress and your family will curse u for going with them.

I have an extremely negative experience with Talk talk with regard to their customer service. I called to request an early cancellation of my contract because I have to move out of the country which doesn't make it possible to transfer my account to a new address in the UK. They answered this is not a valid reason to stop the contract and therefore want to charge me 200 pounds !!!!! I've been a client for about 5 years, so I was shocked! They let me wait on the line for more than half an hour in order to put me through to a manager. Instead of a manager I was connected to another employee. Finally they simply interrupted the call. I feel this is outrageous! I have never experienced something like this before.

ABSOLUTELY AWFUL ....... WORSE CUSTOMER SERVICER EVER!! When they confirm the engineer is coming on a certain day over the phone they are lieing, and they lie when they say you’ll be given notice. We have had the hub less than 6 months and already needs replacing. Extremely slow with the replacement and you do not get updated in the process; has been over a week without internet we are still have to pay for. Ludicrous absolutely ludicrous.
