That's exactly what someone on another forum said to me.
In reply to a post
I'm trying to weigh up the pros and cons of moving to Talk Talk LLU, though.
Yes, the faster speed and £10/month saving will be nice but will I suffer regular drop-outs/see my speed throttled in the evenings?
Also, there's the 12-month contract with Talk Talk, so not particularly easy to leave them if things start to go wrong.
2 Things why I would not even consider talk talk,
1, Full LLU only( They take over both phone and bb) and can /is a pain to switch back after,also can/does cost you,in one way or another, if you must go talk talk /opal, then consider doing so via a re-seller
2, their customer service/tech support, is pants via the telephone, and their sales staff are known liers, they will spin you a yarn everytime just to get you to sign up, (as that's how they get a good wage) commision from new buisness not truth
But the service it's self is similar to a few other Mass market isp's, offerings o2/sky spring to mind , the connection will be subject to their DLM so will probably rob you of some sync also the default profile will be interleaved, but have read reports that this can be changed to fastpath, (which in theory should give you a better sync rate)
Requests for this are made are via a cumbersum user forum, which isn't too mucxh of an issue unless you have no working bb connection or worse still voice service too at the end of the day, it's a mass market isp. no frills an all that, so if it works ok you will be fine, but if it don't your screwed basically,
Oh i nearly forgot their web censoring/spyware proxy, that follows you around the web in secret, plenty about that here and elsewhere on the interwebs, unless it's via p2p as that gets throttled, well what did you expect for so little money?
