Don’t trust this business, just lose your money time and give you big headache. for first installation they send an “engineer” to check if you just connect the wires, that’s it. And you have no service for next engineer in few weeks, then you will probably have service “if you are really lucky” on top of that “the engineer “ is not showing. Imagine minimum 3 times stayed at home waiting not working not earning money, paying for car prak...in total you lose 3 times of what you pay them in a year contact! Don’t risk it. You are the biggest loser:(

WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER... WORST COMPANY EVER..

Self-employed and home based..I have subscribed for the fibre and never had it since 1month now due to the fact that they never access the situation before selling you services. Lost 2 valuable client and 10K.
Disrupt all my work flow and scheduled..had to drive 15miles with a baby in a car to share fibre of a friend.. Last but not the least I was hacked by scammer using talktalk pitch to approach me. they Had all my personal details in advance which I believe was leak internally by talktalk.. Had me to download a saoftware called "teamviewer" which allow them to access your device remotely..
Talktalk customer service basically told me it was my fault as I allowed scammer to invade my privacy because they have put advert everywhere to inform their client..NO empathy, no concern about client and mainly giving you false informations especially when it comes to technical appointment.

I am definatily not finish with them yet eventhough I'm switching to another provider right away..

OOh the best part they asked me to pay cancelation fees for a services they have never provided to me..REally!?

TALKTALK DON'T TRUST THEM!!!

Talk Talk is absolute the worst! In both Broadband and Customer Services. My best advice is never ever to go with them, unless you want to be put on hold and transferred to different departments back and forth for at least 10 times!

This company needs to revamp its customer service!!!!!!

I used Talk Talk for just over five years, then due to re-development around my property, which was actually being knocked down for a new estate complex, I contacted Talk Talk to inform them that my property will be demolished and I was moving away to an area where Talk Talk was not available, therefore cancel my subscription. This was approximately a three months notice.

Then around 15 months later I received a statement/invoice for around £160 for using their broadband service at the property which by now did not exist (completely knocked down a few weeks after I left.

On various lengthy discussions direct with Talk Talk they were claiming I never cancelled the contract. Getting nowhere directly with their Customer Service Departmeny I got the CAB involved, and after asking for the recorded tape (with payment) of my original cancellation discussion they never contacted me again.

However, a few moths ago I received a debt collection letter asking to pay the debt on Talk Talk that had now increased t over £200…..

Firstly, what person would call a company informing that their property was being demolished and would want to continue with a subscription to a service they could not use???? And why does this company pass this onto a debt collection company when they have not even provided a thread of evidence that I never requested a cancellation when they first claimed they had my conversation recorded and never asked for the subscription to be cancelled and then at a later date claimed I never called them????

My advice too anyone dealing with this company to do it in writing and recorded delivery and not over the phone….

We had no real issues with TalkTalk up until about 8 months ago when our contract ended, the internet started slowing down and becoming intermittent. We logged a fault and everything went downhill from here. There were numerous times we called and spent well over an hour on the phone to them at a time. Every time we called we had to start from the beginning as they hadn’t logged the issues correctly on their system. They charged us for an engineer to come out even when the issue is a fault with their line and service.
Eventually we logged a complaint because things weren’t getting resolved and we were paying for a service we weren’t actually receiving. The customer service from their complaints team was even worse than from their technical team! Never receiving any calls back when promised, asking me to explain the full story to them EVERY time I called them, arguing back with me on the phone! They are truly an awful company to deal with, with no respect or care for their customers! As soon as we have moved house we will be changing providers immediately. And I would highly recommend people NOT TO GO WITH TALKTALK!
Awful internet, Awful customer service!

Please do not use talk talk as they are so bad. They increased the monthly charge to promise us a faster speed but it is pretty slow and it keeps dropping. When you called the customer service they are not able to sort that out. We are really fed up.

A lot of my time wasted
Would recommend NOT using this company!!

Disgusting customer service. You ave to sign up to another contract if you want to modify your service. "Loyalty team" offers nothing

Simply appalling. I have a Talktalk account, a bundle of broadband, landline & mobile. My situation is that I left the address of the landline, effective 21 June, moving in with family at a different UK address which already has landline & broadband provision. I still need mobile access. I am renting out my property & I'm currently in Europe on holiday.
Because I had previously used my current personal email address when I had previously had a Talktalk account, when setting up my new account, I was forced to use a work email address when I rejoined Talktalk. I now no longer have access to this email address as I have since left that job. Talktalk will not allow me to change the email address to my personal email address, due to the address' previous use. This email address needs to be changed.

On 20th of June I called TalkTalk & spoke to an operative. I can't remember his name; let's call him Barry Chuckle. I explained all of the above & was told that I would have to talk to a different department. He put me through, I held for 45 minutes, the call was answered & immediately cut off. Tsk.

I called back immediately, this time, speaking to, let's say Paul Chuckle. He explained that more than one day's notice was required to end the landline & broadband contracts, which I accept. I expressed my concern that my tenant could run up charges on my account. Paul explained that a "block" could be put on outbound calls. I requested that this be done, effective 6am the following morning, as that was when I was departing to catch a ferry to France. Paul explained that this action couldn't be requested in advance, but that I should call back before I set off; I assured him I'd do this. I stressed that, as I'd be travelling extensively in Europe I needed all of my current mobile plan provisions to continue - ie data & ability to make calls.

Day 3. By this time it is evident that I have no data roaming, lack of access to my phone's satnav contributing to a 2-hour navigation error. I phoned again, speaking to Mr Bean this time, requesting once more that mobile data should not be disabled. I was told that it could be enabled, but this would take up to 48 hours, & when I expressed disappointment, I was told I should have called 2 days previously - I pointed out that I had asked for this 2 days previously. Thankfully, data "switched on" later that same day.

A couple of weeks on & I reach my data limits & cap. A text tells me I can reactivate by phone or online. I try by phone - "phone not registered on network", presumably due to the disabling. I try online - "account cannot be accessed from your location". How then do I reactivate my account until I return to the UK?
After repeated promises that I would receive a call back in 3-5 days, a call arrived after a month, but the agent hung up on me. I called back to cancel my account; the agent hung up on me.

Talk Talk consistently fail to provide the service that they guarantee.

Their reputation for being a poor broadband provider is well deserved.

They are only interested in money, they are not interested in providing the service that they guarantee or in fixing the issues that regularly arise with their service.

They are reluctant to send out an engineer to fix any faults- I was advised that I would be charged £40 for an engineer to be called out to resolve an issue that I hadn't caused.

I insisted that I wanted to leave Talk Talk and I was advised that I would be charged £40 for the early termination of my contract.

After spending an hour on the phone, being transferred from department to department and being put on hold, a manager finally agreed to send out an engineer free of charge.

The engineer failed to fully resolve the issue and I have another engineer visit booked for next week.

Please seriously reconsider if you are considering joining Talk Talk.

As almost every reviewer here has said, they are a very poor company.

Talktalk is absolutely horrible, worst broadbrand provider in the world with the most clueless customer service team ever. Internet always cuts out and they charge you for nonsense, highly recommend you choose another provide because talktalk suck and always will suck!

Please Please Please save yourself hours of your life and do not sign up to a TalkTalk contract. If you ever have a problem with your internet then you will spend hours trying to deal with an incompetent customer services team that will, send you back to the start of a basic troubleshooting process every time you call, fail to call you back when promised, never pass on your details to the next caller and regularly close cases before your problem is resolved. The worst company i have ever signed up to.

OFF AS MUCH AS ITS ON. CONSTANT ONGOIGN PROBLEMS STILL 18 MONTHS DOWN THE LINE AND ITS ALWAYS THE SAME PROBLEM - THE EXCHANGE. BUT TALK TALK CAN'T BE BOTHERED TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT AND WE ARE TALK TALK'S CUSTOMER (NOT BT'S) PAYING THEM FOR THE SERVICE WE ARE NOT GETTING

Talk talk are an absolute joke and their customer service and any contact is ALL via DELHI INDIA. Regardless of what speed they say you're going to get, all you'll have is constant ongoing problems they cannot be bothered to contact BT engineers to fix.

Its now OVER 12 months and they STILL can't resolve all the problems they have caused us. Continue to blame wiring etc at the home (which is just an excuse because BT Engineers have wired it all up) and all confirmed themselves the problem is at the BT Exchange in padiham and NOTHING to do with the home. Yet talk talk just like to keep fobbing people off because they can't even understand half the english you are communicating to them via DELHI

NOT to mention changing our telephone number over to SKY for 4 days without even knowing about any of it (I discovered this)

THEN numerous times including recently NO TELEPHONE OR INTERNET FOR 5 DAYS (SAME BACK IN FEBRUARY) - THERE IS JUST NO EXCUSE FOR THIS

The best way anyone can know what kind of service they are going to get (should anything go wrong) is find a direct contact EMAIL for them and see what happens. I tried this before joining SKY recently and well all I can say about them is its the same if you have ANY problems (they don't want to know and even managed to cock everything up once we'd paid and signed up with them) EVEN before the live date with them they managed to cancel it when it was paid for for 12 months

So if any internet provider PASS the direct communication contact beforehand, its always a good sign BEFORE signing up. Its been fail proof so far

needless to say we WILL be changing over again

don't forget to go via topcashback for a good saving with any internet provider !!!

the connection has just gone off AGAIN before posting this message. I have constantly sent hundreds of emails and speed test over the last 18 months and they don't care and never solve the problem which is STILL on going

If you are looking to pay for a service you are NOT going to get half the time then perhaps talk talk is for you !!

THE WORST PROVIDER!!!

this is the worst experience I've ever had! from the first day of setting up the service we had issue with the speed.
They are not able to give us the speed we agreed in the contract! not even half of that!!!
it's been three moths and just send us engineers every month but they are not able to resolve the problem!
their customer service is awful. they are not professional, not caring! they are just waisting your time if you call them. I feel they are waisting the time by sending engineers after engineers until our contract ends.

I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT DO NOT GO AHEAD WITH THIS PROVIDER UNLESS YOU WANT TO WAIST YOUR MONEY AND WAITS YOUR TIME!!

I terminated the contract with TALKTALK in June 2018. To be honest, I began to regret about it. My life with a new provider has become boring. During the last 4 months the Internet has never shut down. I miss so much the time when I was a customer of Talktalk, when every day several times I had the Internet disconnected, I endlessly overloaded the modem, called and wrote to Talktalk, spent many hours in chat. But Talktalk did not leave me, today, 4 months after the termination of the contract, Talktalk sent me a bill, I again owe them money. Moreover, without informing me, they independently activated Direct Debit and took my money. Phenomenal.

Stay away of this company, everything they promise is lies.
The broadband they advertising is not unlimited, when you watch few more videos on YouTube, they slow down you speed to minimum, or stopping the internet access for few hours or sometime for whole days.on the end i wanted to cancel my account,its impossible to cancel your account, as when i trying to contact them, and they hear i want to cancel my account, they just hang on the phone, or make me to wait on the chat system 30-40 minutes without success, and on the end i should stop my direct debit.
After canceling the account they still send me huge bill to pay, so read reviews before purchasing talktalk services,you won't save money with them, and you will get big troubles.
Stay away, stay away

Talk talk broadband+customer service+engineers are absolutely RUBBISH! You have to buy a package then they can find out whether it's working for your flat or not!! After 55 minutes talking with customer service on my credit they said we need to send an engineer! It took 12 days for them to send an engineer because all slots were full and they don't do after 6pm. Was happy when engineer knocked my door... Before testing anything or asking any questions he said problem should be from BT! Carried out a 2 minute test and said we'll arrange a BT engineer to come and check the line! It's now 8 days passed with no news!!!!! You better off pay more money to go with other broadband providers to get better quality and service!

I would never recommend.
I would never recommend.

Given an activation date for a house move that could logistically never happen (wasn't told this at time) in order to get me to stay with them, given a new better price for the package (still being billed for the old price 2x as much!), informed by them that I have an unstable connection leading to a download speed of 10mbps (AWFUL!) but then they won't arrange for an engineer to come and solve it unless it is at my cost. Won't upgrade my router despite apparently being a faster fibre customer. Can't get help, can't even get a connection most of the time. Call centre isn't based in England so noone actually understands your problem. Raised a complaint to the CEOs office and was told I'd get a response - never did. This company DO NOT care about customers. Give your money to someone else. ANYONE else would be better.

Worst provider ever!!! Lack common sense and no one knows what there doing! Tried cancelling within the cooling period and had so much trouble getting hold of them and then got sent to different departments that couldn’t deal with my situation. Awful customer service and provided avoid!
TalkTalk  
The 3rd of sept I got home and the wifi and computer stopped working. So I called Talk Talk to try to solve the problem but they couldn't. I got an engineer appointment for the 23 so I need to be home otherwise I will be charged £20 surprise !!no one appears. I Called them and the person I spoke to could hardly speak English and when I said I want to cancel I got an English person who want me to book another engineer appointment for 3 weeks time I was so angry.
He told me that if an engineer didn't come before the 4 oct I can cancel my contract. Talk talk did not call me back regarding the repair. That was almost a month without having the Internet which is unacceptable.So I called on the 4th to cancel my contract with them, which I was advised by Talk Talk that I was entitled to do. To my surprise I need to pay for breaking my contract with no compensation for the month I had been with no internet or tv. thanks talk talk for the good 8 years of your service but when a problem occures talktalk is the worse. They are unhelpful , unsympathetic and unreliable. In this day and age that level of service from a company is unacceptable.
