    My debit increased from £30 to £40 for no reason. I sent company 5 emails asking why it increased and every email was ignored. Cancelled the debit and they then added a further £10 to my bill. Still haven’t replied to me. Do yourself a favour and AVOID this company.

    italk is without a doubt the worst broadband company I have ever used, I was with them for 3 years and now i'm back to my previous provider, so I know.
    Avoid them at all costs! The internet was always slow but up until Covid19 in 2020 I was rarely home so didn't mind - but I always made sure to report the faults, which were always meet with silly excuses such are poor weather (i'm talking rain in London). October- November 2020 was the worst, working from home was extremely difficult with their lines dropping every few minutes, sometimes for hours. December I didn't have any internet at all! I had to pay for a mobile hotspot upgrade and lost many days of work because of it. When I spoke to them about this they said they would refund for lost internet, my phone data, but they lied. The engineer they finally sent out for an inspection (first and only in 3 years of complaints) said there was nothing for him to fix and that the modem was faulty. Note, he had never heard of italk, lol. I called back and said I was done with not having any internet and would be cancelling as it didn't make sense to pay that month, let alone another month for no internet. They wanted to charge me for a new modem to be sent out and said they wouldn't be able to resolve the issue or pay me any compensation if I moved on. I must have been on the phone for a good hour asking to cancel, with the guy just asking me to pay for the new modem, he hung up on me and I cancelled the direct debit. Finally managed to cancel on the phone today (April 2021!), and not a penny compensation wise. Ridiculous.

    I Don't recommend this broadband. Quite disappointedthat that at the beginning we've got promised a fast broadband and turns out that it is far too slow.+ 12 month contract. The internet does interrupt often with covid online lessons, especially wonderful (not)!! Thankfully hands down, it does not go off totally (that's why I give them 3 stars for the reliability). Also, contacted them few times about it. Customer service always good give them 5 stars for it. Sorry for this review but it's only fair for people to know.

    Got to be the the arse of IP. After many calls 2 engineers called out, never even told me about second until i got a phone call on the morning the 2nd engineer called out, stating he would call between 1pm-6pm, i told the agent, don't bother i have signed up with someone else, but hey ho an egineer called at 10 and said he would be 20 mins, then was told to cancel with new provider which i already paid money to or i would be charged any costs, they cancelled from their end, when after 4 hrs the chap got the internet working, i went straight back to new provider and signed again, 2x money still waiting on refund on the first cancelled payment, they said they would refund for lost time/internet my phone data was all used up lol, joke, now because i'm leaving they cannot do this, and because i cancelled direct debit they charge you £10 lol, no i must pay final £19.99, well they say they will persue this, even when i got home from work landline rang, has not for yrs lol, i'm Scottish you know the answer i gave them lol, stay well clear folks, really terrible internet speeds 0.02 mb lol what a joke it is now 11.0 my new IP will be about 16.0, legalised thugs, especially when you leave. They have no techinal staff just call centre people reading from a scripted screen. Stay

    Do not go with them. You will regret it. They tell you different things, The internet is super slow and when you cancel it and provide proof they tell you nonsense on the phone but don't actually do it. We have complained several times every time they tell you different things and after months not being with them they still charge you and on the phone says that is not even your last bill. We only been with them for 2 weeks and didn't receive the fast internet we paid for. You will be blocked from our credit card.
