PiKe,

Excellent move smile

I'm still contracted with BT but I do get the evening and weekend calls deal plus a good retention discount. Xilo/uno would certainly be my choice if I wanted partial LLU, better speeds etc.

All those boosts and stuff offered by TT can really ramp up the monthly costs - they even did away with inclusive free local anytime calls a while back...

It's my understanding that there's no option for part LLU with TalkTalk has to be full or none.

I'm under contract with BT but I'm just going to pay the early termination fee of £3 per remaining month.

PiKe,

Yes I'm sure you are correct about there being no partial LLU with TT. Getting the line back to BT is a real myther from full LLU. I think it's the physical reconnection at the exchange from TT's kit to BT's kit that somehow seems to be the issue. TT seem very willing to connect anybody up to full LLU if they enter a contract and conversely BT seem very willing to reconnect if a contract is entered into with them, otherwise the liability of a heavy reconnection fee is distinctly possible.

You wont miss that 3 quid when you are up and running with xilo/uno smile

Actually Vivaciti do partial LLU via TalkTalk:

However consider it a blessing that you will no longer have your phone line with BT...if you ever called their overseas support, you'll know how painful it was.

You are pretty much guaranteed to be a happy customer with Xilo smile

Ok cheers, still apprehensive to go with TalkTalk because of the potential headaches.


Don't blame you frown Back in Sept 2010, I was dilly-dallying between Xilo (resold Talktalk LLU) and signing up direct with TT. I bravely chose TT and in the 2 weeks before going live I was really anxious and convinced 100% i had made the biggest balls-up in my life. Luckliy it didn't turn out that way, but i suspect plenty of people won't take the risk.

Anyway best of luck whatever you decide smile




Even if I liked Talk Talk as a company, which I don't,, I doubt very much if I would risk going with Talk Talk because of all the problems I hear about and also problems I see other people having.

Also I like to talk directly with Customer service if I have problems, not have to use a forum.


I used to hate TalkTalk even more than you do but i've seen the light, i'm sure you'll also do one day smile

It doesn't help that I know people who have talktalk and suffer with problems.

Hmm. I know people with TalkTalk who do not suffer any issues. Me for one, my parents and a some of my other relatives. I think it was up to 6 the last time I heard. None have any problems apart from a blown router (quickly solved!!).....

It all depends on what you expect. If you want cheap, then you get cheap.
