That will certainly make some people think about jumping ship. i know my brother who uses the Post office broadband service, was looking at Talk Talk a couple of months ago because he said it is cheaper. the only reason he have not gone for it so far is because I advised him against it, saying he would be better off with sky or even Tescos.
