Brum TalkTalk  
I have been with Talktalk for 6 years and have always had good service and lots of loyalty rewards for contract re-newal.
First Talktalk has to use the existing old BT cable network which is many years old as open reach are slow to upgrade many areas and having been owned bt BT it was not in their interest to help the competition.
If your broadband is slow or cutting out? its likely to be the infrastructure not the ISP.
I live in a remote village so it does drop ot or run slow occasionally but we now have fibre and thing are much better here.
As for customer services I have never had a problem in 6yrs the only thing is the overseas accents from the call centres.
I f you got a crap infrastructure (old phone lines) your internet is gonna be crap whoever your provider is.
My opinion, Talktalk are fine and after a couple of re news of contracts become very good.

As for service if your rude to them? they will be rude back

TalkTalk is absolutely fine as long as you avoid their so called 'Super Router' which is buggy. This is causing many of the problems customers have with their connections.

Buy your own router (I'm using a £40 TP-Link router) and you'll find a solid and stable connection.

It's better to use Live Chat to talk to CS as it's very hard to understand the Indian call centre operatives.

However, I've found the only way to resolve most issues is to email the CEO Dido Harding's office who are English and will resolve issues reasonably.

London TalkTalk  
I was with TalkTalk for more than 3 years. They were fine. I had heard that their customer service wasn't very good, but I never needed to contact them in the first place until I left, and even then they were generally helpful. There was a bit of a mix-up with my change to a new provider but this was quickly dealt with. Internet speeds didn't set the world on fire but were fine for the price, and overall TalkTalk provided a reliable service.

I have been with TalkTalk for many years, I have found them to be fair and very helpful, I know it would be better if customer service was in the UK,but I have spoken to the overseas branch, and found them to be very good. On price they are hard to beat, but like all the rest prices are creeping up.

Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland TalkTalk  
Not really had a problem with talk talk - just signed up for another 12mths with 6 months 1/2 price.
Phone line was rubbish at first but they got an engineer here within a week (BT subcontractor) who arranged BT to fit new cable from pole - broadband has been fine since getting 14meg so adequate for my use. Will maybe upgrade to fibre when becomes available in my area. Was a virgin customer for many many years at previous address but wanted to pay less - you soon get up to £40+ per month with virgin or sky and this is too much for us - so talk talk has been a good substitute. I have a NOW box for the odd time I want to watch my team on Sky Sports (obviously better to not be using laptop/tablet at same time as streaming tv sports with a low download speed).
So all in all satisfied.
I think a lot of people's problems come with maybe bad overhead phone lines/connections so ask for a proper line check before installing BT/TalkTalk or even SKY BB.

Stockport TalkTalk  
If you don't need any support then TT is for you. I don't and so I'm very happy with TT. I get a stable 36mb download and 9.5 upload. Of course I dumped the TT free router as it was rubbish. I have a Netgear D7000v2 its just replaced an N600. Always use Netgear stuff. Cheap reliable and that's all I need. Been a customer since 2010..upgraded to Fibre just as soon as it was available. Only get Internet and calls from TT never tried the TV package.

I have been with talktalk for well over a year and a half now,after reading all the terrible reviews on this I can't believe it,I'm on fibre medium and the call plan which allows you to call mobiles and land lines free for an hour but hang up before the hour and go again.my Internet has drop out about twice very late at night a can stream bbc iplayer etc... no problem and use my laptop and phone at the same time no problem, I was paying 33 pound for this but signed the new deal and now pay 30 which is a fixed price for 18 months no pay rises....a have a free sim card with 200 mins on it free but gave it to my mother who never gets near the limit every month but you can easily check via the app.yes the customer service is tricky with the over seas .communication but it's a free call anyway.I was with bt for 20 years but they kept rasin thier prices while given the deals to new customers which riled me as a was with them for so long.it can't just be me but talktalk are actually no bad at all,as a say this is my personal experience.

West lothian TalkTalk  
Not yet sure about broadband reliability, but had to share my experience. Broadband was "flaky" for past 10 days - very frustrating and couldn't get catch-up on TV. Read reviews and wished I hadn't joined Talktalk in July. Eventually bit the bullet and phoned customer services - as per other complaints had to wait about 40 mins for a reply from the Indian call centre. They did checks on my line, called me back and said it was a BT Openreach problem. I said "yeah, yeah, heard it all before etc". Next morning, 8 hrs later, got text from Openreach engineer saying they had found a fault with the fibre box down the street, came in and checked my connections and everything was OK. Can't believe it - was I just lucky??? Best customer service episode I've ever had!!

I'm making this review because people satisfied with the service rarely post.
I am happy with the service, £28 a month for 76mbps is £10 less than what everyone else charges.
once you get your port forwarding sorted out (VPN recommended), the supply is adequate.
7MB/s for the same price as what other providers charge for 3.5MB/s

Scarborough TalkTalk  
Have been with TalkTalk for a number of years now and can honestly say I have been pleased with their service. We live in an old property in a country setting some 5/6 miles from the nearest telephone exchange. We recently had a problem with drop out. TalkTalk sent out an engineer after a very helpful discussion with tech support, who very patiently tried to sort out any problems at our end. The engineer left us with a clean service and a speed of 8.5. No charge from TalkTalk. What did emerge from the visit was the number of devices in use at our home - 19! How many of us add and add modern technology without any thought to how these are used. We have now arranged to have fibre installed, which apart from an increased speed, should enable us to increase our devices up to 38. I can easily see us getting up there when the family turn up in any number!

Lancashire TalkTalk  
Had a lot of problems with reliability after they upgraded to ADSL2+ that were only resolved by 2nd line support after 3 weeks. But £4.04 a month is cheaper than any other provider and 13 Mbps is more than enough download speed so I ain't moving until somebody undercuts them

Been with TalkTalk 10 years now. Had problems in first few months with broadband dropping, but has been fine since I changed to a Netgear wireless modem router. Customer service has been fine, and my one dealing with a "techie" was excellent. Cost and Service first class. Don't recognise the company the other poor reviews are referring to.

Bideford TalkTalk  
I don't believe the negative reviews as genuine customers???I have been with talk talk since they started,many years now.

Yes they much better than used to be was a patchy phrase, but I stuck with them mainly due to massive cost difference with BT.


Broadband improved hardly any drop outs,use BBC I player OK.have had occasional line probs each time has been fixed quickly,has been while since any problems due to the new box they sent me&tbh problems were due to BT line&tree effecting the line outside the home.

I'm more happy with them,yes sometimes on rare occasion you can get a newbie on customer service which not greatest,but generally I found them helpful pleasant.

I won't leave not yet anyway, though was thinking try the latest company at minute I'm happy with£22.95-£27, fast broadband and free calls and sim

HERTS TalkTalk  
to all of you that moan at TalkTalk plc is rubbish well you dont read to what your signing up to most of you are on a DSL connection not a fiber one you need to take in to account the the length of the telephone line is from your house to the telephone exchange is if its over 2 miles long you will get a connection speed of 4.5 meg also take a look at how many devices are connected to your router for example if you have 3 smart tv and 2 mobile phones and 2 laptops and 1 desk top connected to the router you will see a drop in your speed as these devices take 2 or 3 meg each to operate and a lot of time your fault not theirs. also look at the location of your router as private telephone engineer that contracts my work out to BT ive seen routers in some strange places in ceilings cellars behind tvs under-floors in walls in lofts and when i've moved them to a different location the connection improved also telephone line extensions are not made for broadband ive seen so many routers plugged in to these things its not funny there not reliable even though it says broadband ready there not always keep your router plugged in to the master socket. Please look at your contracts and read what type of BB you have singed up for and the lowest guaranteed speed they can supply you with. i signed up to talktalk 3 months ago my min guaranteed speed is 56.7mbps yes im on fiber but im getting around 80mbps and its been reliable no slowdowns no spikes nothing i cant fault them apart from there customer services.

Had no issues with the broadband with this supplier, good enough speed and a solid connection.
What was not so great was the mid-contract price increases as they made free items paid and then a CPI increase in rental. Other company despite Talk Talks claims do not do this. It was very disappointing when this happened and support were quite unhelpful. I left when the contracted ended, probably not an ISP I would return to any time soon.

United kingdom TalkTalk  
Had no problems with this broadband at all, it never dropped and was always at relativity high speeds (for what we were using it for anyway). Had it for over a year.

Had issues when moving home. We were told they couldn't provide at our new address and that we would be let out of the contract for this reason. All fine until we received a cancellation bill. Took a LONG time to resolve, with quite rude people who simply did not listen or read over my previous emails. Had to start again every time I spoke to them.

Overall great if you don't have to deal with customer service. With the reliability of it though, you shouldn't have to.

Oxford TalkTalk  
Ok, the customer safety is the worst probably, and I've been changed the appointment for the go live date of internet twice... but apart from that, the connection is good, they cancelled the installation fee and promised me three months free to apologize. Also the strength of the signal is good, I've had sky before and the signal was much weaker. My offer is Faster Fibre. I suggest to do it if you don't have any problems of waiting for your new line, the price is cheap tho.

wickford TalkTalk  
I've been with talk talk for many years. Overall, I'm quite satisfied. We did have a lot of problems with the broadband reliability, but we changed our router and have had no problems since, so it must have been a problem with the router. I have spoken with customer services on quite a few occasions. I find them rather tedious to talk to, but nonetheless helpful. The customer services staff are in India, and so the communication can be a bit more difficult, and they are obviously taught to keep repeating back your request, which is a bit annoying. They are usually quite good at talking you through any problems and are quite helpful I have found. There are high number of bad reviews on this site, and it makes me wonder if it is mostly those with problems that bother to leave a review unfortunately. I don't think it gives you a good feel for what the company is really like, because like I say, I have many dealings for many years and have had pretty good service.

When Talk Talk is not having a crisis, I find the system good. I found customer services helpful on the few occasions I have used it.

The email server seems to have improved greatly just recently.

On the minus side the Talk Talk Search Site and News is extremely annoying and for me unusable because as you are trying to read popups obliterate everything, so I never use it

I switched from sky and regretted it as kids would scream they have lost connection while online gaming.
It took many phone calls and now no more lost connection.
Once it's sorted I can't complain
I am getting steasy 31mb from the 38mb package

For the price of £22.50 you can't go wrong.
If the price was same price as rival company I would leave.
I would say their customer service is not great..most read from script but some are really good and helpful.

Customer service is non existent!
Signed up and was told system would go live on 24/07/17. It did not.To get both broadband and phone land-line working took until 03/08/17, It took 2hrs 46mins spread over 6 phone calls and at a cost to myself of £48,80 on a pay as you go mobile to get everything working. In fairness the broad band was up and running within72 hrs of schedule but the land line was a nightmare.
When I asked to be repaid for the calls I made I was asked to provide receipts, can you do this on pay as you go? I don't know as I only have a mobile for emergencies and have only made 1 call since I was given it last December.

This is feedback about Mandy who I just took out a contract with for talk talk starting 1st March 2018. She deserves a medal and a reward for the best customer service I have ever received. She clarified everything patiently and so I was clear about what I was getting. She has an excellent telephone voice and manner and nothing was too much trouble in spite of lots of questions from me . Well done to Mandy . Get more people on board like her. I do hope the after sales service lives up to the same high standards

Old woking TalkTalk  
The best speed obtainable with BT was 0.5Mb and that was on their Option 3 tariff. Having swapped to TalkTalk earlier this year I was amazed that I immediately was getting speeds close to 3MB and I have never experienced any loss of service. However, the TalkTalk customer service is laughable, they are simply not capable of resolving any issues, no matter how simple. Nevertheless, providing you are an experienced computer user or know someone who is, then for the speed and reliabilty alone TalkTalk is a good choice.

I know the other reviewers have had bad experiences, so I guess I won the Broadband Lottery!

Got TT about a year ago, and yes there were teething problems... Arguments as to which end of the line the fault was one, promised a new router which never came etc, but since then the speed and quality has been fine.

We have just moved from one end of the country to another and we're expecting hell to move the account, but half an hour on the phone and it was sorted "just plug in your router and you will be connected".

As incredulous as I was at this, when I plugged in the router in the new house and switched it on, all our devices connected straight away no problems.

Now, we have never needed to switch from TT, complain about a service, change DD date etc, so I can't comment on that customer service angle, but our journey with them has been surprisingly smooth.
