I am currently with Aol and using their Aol 9.6 destop software. I have been advised by TalkTalk that when i transfer to them i can still use the Aol software to access the internet rather than having to use internet explorer as they are the same company. Can anyone confirm this as i suspect they are just saying this to persuade me to sign up.
Aol Bloatware was not needed with AOL It's a resource hog too
uninstall it, the router has the configuration that's needed to use the internet or should have
TalkTalk bought out Aol sometime ago, so not the same company really, As for if the change will affect you in a negative way, that would depend who you currently are paying line rental to, most if not all TT retail is fully unbundled FMPF LLU (Phone & ADSL)
Do you buy just Adsl services from AOL ? or both Phone and DSL ? if only ADSL and you want to become a tt customer then your phone line rental &calls will moved from BT's control to theirs, if you are currently inside any contract terms with your current telephony supplier or you don't give the required notice you may have to pay some charges to them
And once you are full LLU there is no MAC code system in place to cover full llu
Migrating away can be a pain, with longer down time but down time of both phone &bb in some cases , My advice would be to un install the AOL bloat ware it's not needed anyway , and weigh up the pros and cons of switching to tt before you do,
