What is the point?

simply broadband is cheap, maybe too cheap. cheaper than what i am paying even if i added fibre onto it, but the thought of going with Talk Talk fills me with horror.

i will stay as I am I think, not that I have got much choice for another 6 months or so.

opening the cupboard at night used to fill me with horror, but times move on you know smile

I've never been a TT fanboy, but I can honestly say I've had no issues for the last two years.

Now on FTTC 37mbit/2mbit for £114 upfront and £10.75 a month (this includes the £5 extra for unlimited calls aswell)

Seems to be no issues with p2p when I use it. My pings are hugely lowered (66ms to 40ms to Hamburg), googleDNS from 40ms to 25ms, but all in all it is good value for money.

In theory, theory and practice are identical.....in practice they aren't!

i just could not bring myself to use Talk Talk, no matter how cheap, their customer service is a shambles and their home safe is too much spying for my liking and being in Huawei bed, also makes my shiver.
Bad enough that Huawei is all over the Uk as it is.

I think I have homesafe turned off, not sure if the StalkStalk thing is still active.

Also, you don't have to use the supplied home router.

It don't matter if you got homesafe off or on, your browsing still end up going through Huawei systems. Also Huawei is in the exchange as well. For some reason TalkTalk and Bt seems to think Huawei is fine.

i expect the system I use goes though some Huawei equipment at some stage, can't get away from it by the seems of it.

Anyway, Huawei or no Huawei, i still would nto use TalkTalk. and to be honest the prices they are doing now is too cheap and is just going to knock more small ISps out of business which is what TalkTalk want to do, juts like sky and Bt.

for pity's sake stop banging on about the poor quality/ service etc of TT. You've never used it , nor have I but I got embroiled with them because of problems after my husband died .

Now leave 'em alone .

What **everyone** seems to FORGET.... >frown >frown

It is **impossible** to label the WHOLE country as 'having a bad TT service' ... :/

*every* ISP has good and bad areas - this is mainly due to **BT** not maintaining the quality and condition of the lines - a VERY difficult job, when they are usually in hard to reach areas, ruined by rain, farmers, builders... you name it....

It also depends on how you use it, your internal home connections, etc...

A friend has had TT for years,(AND moved twice!!) has had no problems at all... BUT then she only uses the phone package, all her kids only use one or two pages of internet a day....

I am a heavy user, so I decided to change to virgin CABLE , NOT for the service, but to escape the utter mess of too many ' middlemen' !!

Tesco (at my social club), is even worse down here in twick, middx, their first suggestion after I said the line is noisy, is check the filters???

it took 2 weeks of calls for them to realise, and send in the openworld guys... frown
- fault on line, you cannot use the BT line checker, it does not belong to them!!

I agree, I know plenty of people who are on Talktalk and happy with it. Especially when the broadband costs £2.50 and the phone costs less than BT.

And they're not nearly paranoid enough to worry whether Chinese hardware is used on their connection!
