1st working link Is that really an award worthy of anything ?
The second one must of been one of their sales /marketing in house awards , maybe ASA ruled it was misleading or something and they had to remove it,=

Or was it this that you where referring to http://www.uswitch.com/broadband/awards/2013/ Do U switch awards count for anything ? aren't they like some other web sites that will only recommend those ISP's who pay them to?

Well of course they do - if you believe in awards like this.

After all, according to their own blurb, they did survey 900 people. How many UK residential BB lines are there - around 20 million ?

So how much is the opinion of 0.0045% of the user base worth ?

But probably as useful as any other survey produced by a company that thinks it has found a way of getting some cheap publicity (allegedly).

Surveys like this are of more value to simplifydigital than anyone else.

Echo! The TalkTalk ADSL2+ LLU service has been close to flawless. Outages over several years of service have been just a few minutes. Excellent service. And for those needing customer service assistance, then TalkTalk's Online Community Executives do a great job in the talktalkmembers forum.

Here's hoping that TalkTalk keeps up a good reputation for its FTTC customers.

I certainly don't believe in such awards where TalkTalk are concerned. Certainly not from a speed perspective anyway. In the last month I have taken two 80 mile round trips to sort out networks and troublesome lappys for others. Both were on TalkTalk LLU and less than a mile from their exchange. My sister was the best of the two in Harwich with a 5mbps service. The friend in Ipswich is struggling with 3.5Mbps, while BT customers in her street whizz along at 21Mbps. My Market 1 exchange at the other end of Suffolk may have had TT LLU for over 18 months, but it would take a hell of an offer to tempt me to take it with same speeds showing here. It may be reliable, but anything that slow should be.

The difference between genius and stupidity is; genius has its limits.
