Talk talk - any good as a phone/broadband provider?

6 Replies 252 Views Created 25-02-2010

Evening all

 

My dad's thinking of switching phone and broadband providers. From BT (phone) and Orange (internet) to talk talk for both

 

Just wanna know if any of you guys use them and what is there service like?

 

We get at best 2.5 Mg/s down our phone line and speed has never really been an issue

 

Get no lag on PSN etc

 

They a good service?

 

opinions - good and bad please :smileyvery-happy:

im doing that exact thing in a couple of weeks - changing from Orange to TalkTalk.

heard both good and bad things about TalkTalk, but then its the same with all companies it seems, everyone has different experiences with most of them. so best to just make sure theres nothing overally terrible about one, and go for what you want in a provider.

theres no real 100% opinion either way on most of them, which is a bit annoying :/

Rank in the middle, better than I was expecting.

I've been tempted by them as they're the only LLU provider in my area and can give me around 17-18Mb download speeds, but an 18 month contract is a huge no lol
