At first all seemed ok for 6 months,then speed slowed down so much not able to use laptop or phone on wifi at same time.have had 2 engineers out new modem new master sockets and wifi booster sent and still no better.the staff on chat go through the same messages every time and not very helpful. called up to cancel and I still have to pay cancel my contract even though its been on going for over a month. even had the cheek to say let us try and fix the problem within 30 days to leave contract free of charge. what makes them think they can fix the problem? now when not before. Do not use this company. I am now going to try bt or use a wifi hub from 3 gotta be better can not be any worse than these cowboys.

Folks, don't get TalkTalk, they are worse than appalling. Currently I have no connection at all, an engineer was supposed to contact, none has, still waiting.

From the moment of installation it has been a complete nightmare. The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. Customer service is so bad it's funny - almost. It's like Groundhog Day on bad psychedelics.

I made a mistake subscribing to them, and will be cancelling my contract this week. Don't make the same mistake I did. Stay away from TalkTalk, you won't regret it.

If customers use the community forums, problems are sorted out far more quickly. There are a few TT professionals on there, who do their very best, plus you get useful peer support and advice. For that reason I am giving them 4 stars.

Not so good Broadband speed. Just about OK at c 10mbps, but years ago they managed much better than this on "Simply Broadband". The current "Fast" version has probably been downgraded to help push customers into taking out the Fibre options. More noticeable connection loss in recent months too, despite a new router.

A tendency to change terms of service unilaterally, without warning, and watch out for the boost elements of the contract NOT being fixed, despite superficial headline descriptions. Only the Broadband and line rental get fixed.

Boosts carry a 1 month minimum commitment or you will have to pay extra for breaking the minimum term.

Cambridge TalkTalk  
speeds are a scam!! Frustrating customer service
Terrible customer service I was emailed in July saying I wasn’t getting speeds I payed for. After two engineers vists they couldn’t resolve problem customer service tried have you switched it on and off again? Shall we send another engineer? Each call taking at least 40mins of my life to get no where. I leave yesterday to go to BT miraculously they fixed the issue (very suspicious are they limiting customers speeds even though they pay extra for fibre?) after I confirmed I was leaving the speed dropped off again so it’s quite clear where the issue lay and the 2 engineers vists where a waste of time I was a loyal customer for 5 years I would never use these scam artists again as it’s clear they limit the speeds also I was not offered compensation despite paying for service not received

Surrey TalkTalk  
over 2 10 day periods I received on my superfast broadband less than 5mbps instead of the 20 to 35 mbps as promised
both times talktalk admitted liability but were reluctant to compensate
first time I received £38 and for the same thing the second time £3 !!!!
intermittent loss of service is a regular thing and trying to get sense from their asian call center is a waste of time

TalkTalk  
The worst customer service I've ever had.

Promised a 12 month contract for £24.00 per month.

Been charged £38.50 every month, spent over 11 hours on the phone with talk talk across 7 calls in my first month with them.

I am not 3 months into the contract and it is still not sorted.

Couldn't give a worse review of the customer service and situation.

Why is this business allowed to continue. An eighteen month contract resulted in 11months without broadband and three months without a a phone line. Brainless moron call centre no help. Any sane government would close this business immediately.

Burton On Trent TalkTalk  
I am unhappy at all with their service. My broad band keeps cutting off and I have to change to my mobile data most of the time when I am planning to do something important like paying my bills online because I am worried that the connection will stop half way through the process and I have to repeated it again.I keep complaining about it and when ever I chat or call the same check and the same procedure but no difference. The broad band start to work ok for few days and the same problem starts again.
When I chat with the agent they keep advertising about another expensive broad band option which is I am not interested in.
I am planning to leave them.

DO NOT SIGN UP.... TALKTALK
I'd suggest anyone who wants broadband and a decent service to stay away you will get nothing but brickwalls in your way, I am still fighting with talktalk for compensation which for those who don't know majority of broadband services offered these company have signed up for a AUTOMATIC COMPENSATION SCHEME which means if you are receiving less or no broadband speed that you sifned up for your entitled to £8per day, TALKTALK won't tell you this, you ask TALKTALK for compensation they change the conversation, TALKTALK advisors are overseas and this is just another hurdle trying to get information, with regards to INFORMATION you will get told one thing and then ve told another from someobe else. All in all I've now had to request a DEADLOCK LETTER, MY COMPLAINT TO BE FORWARDED TO THE CEO, I also need to wait 4 more weeks to open a complaint to a independent company cifas or someone like this as I DINT TRUST TALKTALK, and feel its the only way to get closure, BEWARE STAY AWAY, it's still on going as I write this, the complaint was opened 24/7/2019, problem still not rectified, I am drained, I have No energy now and this is probably there tactics, I've also found out you can ask or request to speak a ENGLISH ADVISOR, IN ENGLAND and I suggest do it, but first things first just DONT SIGN UP, SIMPLE you only get what you pay for.
Newcastle Upon tyne TalkTalk  
Just noticed this morning in the press talk talk is one of the worst providers for customer service in the UK and i can see why. I pay £18.95 for broadbanf that is terrible i have to reboot every night 3-4 times. I dont download anything I only use the internet and facebook only 2 of us in the house doing the same. tried asking for fibre but the price is more than i can get with other providers. Not great service after been with them for several years just have to bite the bullet and see the last 4 months of contract out and move to new provier talktalks loss

Glasgow TalkTalk  
Ridiculous. Engineer supposedly set up our wifi yesterday after we waited 2 weeks for it to be set up. Didn't check it properly and we have no broadband. I called yesterday and the lady on the phone said its because it takes 24 hours for it to work. When I questioned it she shouted at me and told me the tech team would tell me no different. Well I spoke to the tech team and she was wrong, apparently there was issues and it should have been working by midnight last night...It wasnt. Called again today and the tech guy said he couldn't get anyone out to me for another week. I said I did not wish to pay for anything until it was all set up and I was receiving their services and he said that wasn't possible, but they MIGHT offer compensation after the engineer comes out. I filed an official complaint, the talktalk manager spoke to me with a cold tone of voice. As a new customer, I definitely do not feel valued. Worst part of it all is calling and speaking to the machine, as you have to call about 10 times to find the right option to get through to an actual person. Very stressful experience leaving me feeling very tearful now. Think I'm going to shop around and see if another broadband provider will be willing to help me out sooner.

North TalkTalk  
Since making the bad decision of moving to Talk Talk, our internet has been extremely slow and cuts out. Download speeds have been 1mb.

Customer Service AWFUL. they sent us two replacement routers which did absolutely nothing to help the situation, and on my last attempt they wanted to send another! They then told me the reason it was slow is that I have to upgrade and pay more for their premium broadband?!?!?! Absolutely no way.

Since cancelling they have been calling on a daily basis - but absolutely nothing would want me to switch back to Talk Talk, even if they offered me free broadband!

Speeds lower than promised. When you call they do a test!! Say everything is ok and ask if anything else they can do lol. When you do a speed test on there website they say you are getting the speeds you signed up for even though it is 10mbps average below. I would imagine there is alot of horses outside there call centre as they are truly 100% cowboys. Have a nice day.

Glasgow TalkTalk  
TalkTalk sells a big lie right from the start. Stating you get 67MB unlimited fiber for 25£ pcm. As soon as it came online my speed was 30MB. I have contacted talktalk several (more than 3) times to complain about the fact that this company is charging me 25£ pcm and doesn't give me the promised speed. After checks that they've asked me to do, I had to book an engineer to come for a house visit. The engineer came and mounted some new sockets, but told me straight in the face "you will never get that speed that they've promised you, cause the maximum speed you can have in your area here is 40MB". Sadly because there is no Virgin Media in the area where I live I had to stick with this crappy talk talk internet. Just to mention, my speed has never been higher than 35MB (and I have more than 6 months now with them). I wouldn't recommend this company for someone who needs proper internet speeds. This is just surfing internet, if you need internet for gaming/streaming there is nothing like Virgin Media (especially with the new 350MB fiber now), too bad they're not in my area.

Ilford TalkTalk  
For the customer service and one of the managers name Angela I would give total of big fat 0, no customer service qualities at all, if you don't like your job don't do it. I have chosen the provided by talk talk automated payment over the phone. From over a year I have been raising a complaint that the automated line reads all the numbers but not the numbers on my card, I have been raising the payment issue every month at the end I've been told I should choose a direct debit! Why? I don't have to if there are other options available. YOU! as a provider should fix the problem. Because of this issues I have been paying charges,oh how lovely for this company that the automated payment works with an extra charges, no problem with paying them!!! I will be changing the provider, but I will not leave without the COMPENSATION!!! ENOUGH!

You guys are lucky that I am giving you a '1' when you deserve zero. Why should I have to write to you via the postal system or even phone you when this is an issue regarding absolutely woeful internet access/speed. How ridiculous is the fact that I cannot use a simple email method considering I am paying a lot of money to have internet access via your company. It's a bit like being asked to send a message via carrier pigeon during the 2nd world war when phone, radio and morse code were the norm. Come on, do something.

Engineer visited and told me that he would be unable to complete installation and that TalkTalk would contact me. Received an email from TalkTalk to say that there would be a delay. I waited.. and waited.. and waited.. then eventually called them. They told me that my service was already active and that they had already been charging me. I asked for a refund of the charges prior to the call and they refused even though I hadn't been using their service and they hadn't told me my service was active.

Manchester TalkTalk  
Despite the horrific reviews, we had to choose Talktalk as no other provider served in our area. We have been consistently impressed with the customer service we have received and can only deduce that they have upped their game. The setup was extremely quick and efficient, the broadband has only gone once in six months and they fixed it within an hour, and their online Live Chat function is brilliant and run by people that know what they're doing. We understand they have a reputation for poor customer service and reliability but, unless we've been extraordinary lucky with our engineers and agents, we are fairly sure they've made some big changes for the better.

If you have reliable broadband, keep it, do not join Talktalk, Internet connection stops, starts, stops, starts and then stops for 2days,spend an hour to Talktalk India who say no fault on line, engineer changed adsl socket, fixed for a week now back to no connection, connected, not connected same recurring problem etc, this with a wired connection and speed halved. Cannot shop online as Internet will cut out at any point. Just awful
Please don't join a Talktalk contract.

Only one week was enough for me to switch from TalkTalk to another provider, as my first week was with no internet and they took 4 days to fix the problem. After few days only the internet start to be bad again. I don’t know if this company will last even. It is better to pay more so you can have internet than paying cheaper and stay with rubbish internet “ this is my advice”

Broadband continually cuts out, had a new socket fitted, new router, engineer reset system which recovered my speed. 1 week later- broadband continually cuts out blah blah, spend yet another hour on phone while they say no fault- just utter rubbish.
South TalkTalk  
As far as I am concerned, the overall broadband experience from Talk Talk was no better or worse than any other provider, but what sets them apart is absolutely shocking customer service.
I looked to move, called CS and they opened a case to see if they could provide... wait a call back. They call off a 0800 number to the number you logged (after going through security) and ask you to go through security questions. Yes they advise a call is due in a window, but I will never answer a security question on an inbound call. You then get a text saying you were ‘unavailable’ and they will try again. Same drill.
You call them back answer security and get told ‘we’ll log a case’! Finally get through to find out they can’t supply to new address (had already moved) so I have to terminate, pay early leave fee (understand) pay notice (understand) but not from the date of the original call (miffed) and also I am liable for any costs incurred in the next 30 days !!
Oh yes and with various lengthy holds that was 50 minutes of my life I’ll not get back.
Talk Talk their CS can do, but satisfaction from a call ??

Avoid them is my advice

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.
