I'm currently with Origin ADSL and though it was cheap and support is very good service levels have been poor, only improving with a complaint and still hit and miss. I am looking to move to cheap Fibre and according to
TalkTalk is the cheapest at just over £19 a month for 12 months including a current £75 cashback offer, which ends tomorrow.
I need a change. Any reasons not to choose this? Other than my mum being on their ADSL product and it generally being shockingly slow that is!
I was also considering:
PlusNet - BT now, great service, should be good speeds, little pricey for me
Vodaphone - cheap as chips too, some issues apparently with supplied router and single thread downloads as of the evenings. Apparently shocking CS.
EE - Bit expensive now offers over (?) but I wouldn't mind the extra 5gb mobile a month (but likely would hardly use it)
Sky / Now TV - Bit expensive, 18 month contract.
So - should I choose TalkTalk for their Fibre product? I understand the router is useless but I don't mind getting a 3rd party one (the 835 is it?). I am worried about - peak contention - traffic shaping - blocking ports - single thread download speed - ping - anything you would be worried about
Thanks for the advice folks I have to make up my mind soon.
PS what's the £75 offer sent as? Coupon? Amazon? errr.
