Would TalkTalk be for me?


[link to this post]
 
My exchange (LCWIN) only has TalkTalk as an LLU provider.

I currently use Entanet as my broadband service and pay BT a monthly line rental.

I'm on a 15gb a month package and I don't download large files, most of the network traffic is from Xbox live.

Is TalkTalk's service good enough to meet my needs and maintain reliability on Xbox live?

Am I guaranteed to go on an LLU circuit if they have presence in the exchange?

I have had no problems with TT at all and gaming is fine, I have a XBox and my lad has a PS3, pings are always low and stable.
Phone support can be a frustrating experience but there is also a members forum where you can get help from the Online Community Executives, if like me you never have any problems you will not be using either. wink

Just consider the delay you may have in the future when you need to get your line back from Full LLU to BTw in order to switch ISP.

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU => 2011: Orange 17 Meg Untweaked 19 Meg Tweaked WBC

Yes if you've got the cash then go for Xilo, excellent support similar to the likes of Goscomb, IDNet, AAISP etc smile

£23 for phone and broadband doesn't seem to be comparable to AAISP?

I shall add that TalkTalk cannot or will not tell me the availability of LLU in my exchange and for that reason, I can't consider them. It would be drastic if I ended up on a TalkTalk IPStream product.

Yeah whilst this price doesn't appear to be too bad, just bear in mind that this only includes line rental...no daytime/evening calls included. I might be wrong but I don't think Xilo offer any calling packages so you could see high biils especially if you call 0845/0870 numbers a lot. See here for call charges:

Then call charges aren't really an issue smile
(though personally i prefer the crystal clear call quality a landline offers)
