Current methods to leave with no cancellation fee


[link to this post]
 
As the title states I want to leave but not pay the outrageous fee on my contract, is there any methods of leaving this awful company?

Im looking for a loop hole or current increase in £ that allows me to leave.

I also read into a company called timetalk who pay the early leaving fee, any news on them?

Timetalk is the old Time Computer company which was, IIRC, swallowed by Tiscali and then TalkTalk. I may be wrong but I don't think I would touch them.

You are wrong! They are a phoenix co.

Well in that case, their WhoIs details are false. They've also nicked the Time logo.

Timetalk is probably far worse from what I've heard. It's a case of jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire.

You can either a) bear the service atm and try and work out why it's so bad. Overall TalkTalk broadband isn't bad, just the customer service is poor. If your service is bad it's probably down to poor internal wiring / distance to exchange which would affect you on any ISP. We can help you out with internal wiring.


Or b) Pay up and move elsewhere. You signed a contract and unfortunately you can't just hop and go unless the service is absolutely terrible & talktalk have
exhausted every avenue.

Why exactly do you want to move?

Timetalk's WhoIs points to Granville Technology Limited of Blackburn who, now long dissolved, were the parent company of among others, Tiny, Collusus, MJN and Time.
Time Computer's internet service arm was Supanet.
Timetalk is a trading name of Supatel Ltd, registered in Cyprus.
Tiny Internet and Supanet went through various takeovers and eventually ended up within the Tiscali UK group.
Tiscali UK was swallowed by TalkTalk
TimeTalk's blog consists entirely of posts regarding how to access TalkTalk services.

What's that smell???? Ah, it's a rat!

Haha, this page made me laugh

http://www.timetalk.co.uk/broadband_blog/how-to-upgr...

It says 'how to upgrade to talktalk fibre broadband.'

It's obviously a rebranded talktalk service but anything that time is related to has terrible customer services.
Noticed they're still using that logo that they used to have on the Time computers.

In the distant days of dialup, I used Supanet for quite some time and I have to say, their service was second to none. At the outset, Time's computers were of a fairly decent quality too.

That's the link I see no evidence of. Linky?

TimeTalk, for some reason, are trying tp poach TT users by offering them free, Phone & BB, connection ("TimeTalk will pay the connection fees"), if that means anything.

You misread! All they do is make the self-evident statement:
Any increase in prices by TalkTalk results in a variation to your contract which means, if you decide to cancel the contract due to the price rise within 10 days of notification, you can cancel the contract without penalty.
which is true for anyone to switch anywhere.
