Usenet, from experience, is not throttled. It seems to run full speed ahead when I have dabbled in it smile

. Don't listen to the uneducated masses who's only experience of Talktalk is through heresay!


This far exceeds the meaning of disingenuous, my heresay is through TT representatives, what is one to do!

I'm alright Jack....

Perhaps have a look at the TT forums and see how the OCEs do their best to solve users issues?

Perhaps ask existing Talktalk members who have actually experienced their service?

As i keep saying you're not going to get AAISP's level of customer support for £3.49pm broadband but nevertheless if you stick to web support then TalkTalk's service is value for money smile

TT's traffic management policy is here:
http://www.talktalk.co.uk/legal/broadband-traffic-ma...

If you want to use torrents, just set them to run overnight and they'll be fine.

Newsgroups aren't throttled.

Use the forum rather than phone support:
http://www.talktalkmembers.com/forums/index.php

Ask for a Fastpath profile for gaming, which will typically give you 15-20ms pings.

there is although not mentioned here so far one thing that i think everyone who is considering signing up to a Full llu service Phone & broadband, via the ISP's own equipment, Full metallic path facility(FMPF) should be made fully aware of the situation should they every wish to stop service or migrate to another isp

There are 2 isp's who provide this currently, Sky & talktalk, Should you take such a service from either of them, and at a later time are not happy and want to move/switch to another isp, this process can be costly and involve a longer downtime, with the possibility of loosing your telephone number,
As it is not covered by the MAC code process

This because the line will have to be physically reconnected to bt wholsale's equipment before you will be able to order adsl again, bt do charge for this or will wave the connection fee,in return for you signing up to a calling plan with line rental , as suggested getting tt opal llu via a reseller maybe a better option, i think it's possible to have adsl only (smpf) this way your line stays with who you pay line rental to now and switching would be the easier, as the MAC code system is used

In reply to a post by anything_but:
Will be looking to go the whole hog with phone and bb,currently with plusnet for bb.

If this is the first LLU operator at your exchange, then it will have changed from Market 1 to Market 2.

I suggest that you ring Plusnet and ask for a price reduction. - As I have just done in a similar situation.

I would avoid putting your phone number into the Talk Talk web site to check the line speed. I made this mistake and got about 7 phone calls.
Certainly enough to convince me to avoid them as a supplier. One Talk Talk person also lied to me about the likely line speed.
