    I've not been a TalkTalk customer for nearly under 2 years and I now start recieving letters from Debt collectors demanding payment for £35 as TalkTalk have sold on my account... I was out with my 18 months contract when I switched 2 years ago and to my knowledge made my last payment when I switched. I raised a complaint with TalkTalk and i initially got a response apologising saying a manager would contact me in the next 3 days. As this didn't happen I phoned them from the number in the email as they had stated this would be the quickest way to get an update to my complaint and this is where the fun begins... The incompetence of the Indian woman I spoke to (who took a good five minutes to even take my name) and kept requesting my name and postcode after every question, told me she could not assist me, refused to take my complaint reference and told me to contact the debt collection agency. Furious at this point I repeatedly tried to explain I was calling for an update to my complaint and she just kept repeating "take the number". Put me on hold and came back several minutes and told me to take down the number again... When I asked to speak to a manager and asked her name she then tried the age old "hello, hello?" Could hear laughing in the background and them she muted her phone, forcing me to hang up after 27 minutes of nothing. I responded to the original complaint on Monday and have still not had a reply so will be escalating to CISAS. I'm not even a customer and I'm having to deal with this! Their customer service and broadband are truly awful wouldnt deal with this company if they paid me! Avoid at all costs.

    Ordered broadband and tv. Router never turned up. Installation team didn't turn up 5 times. Cancelled within 30 days and went to sky yet talk talk continued to charge me even though I had no products from them. This continued over a year and stopped. Now 5 years later they are pursuing the best through a debt collection agency for a service I've never had. Stay way away from talktalk. Nothing but poor service dreadful installation and impossible to get anything resolved.

    Just awful. I was to get faster fibre fitted as I was having real problems with buffering on my Amazon firestorm, tablet, laptop etc. I waited for 5 hours, however the
    engineer didn't arrive on time so I went out, hethen had the nerve to text me saying "don't go anywhere, we're on our way". Funny thing is I was driving back past my house and saw the engineer just as he was texting me! Couldn't stop as I was on a driving lesson. Then I get a message from talk talk telling me the engineer couldn't get access!! No **** Sherlock, he was late. What's not to understand??? Then I get 2 seperate messages to say talk talk will call me(on different days/times). Guess what? They didn't call to rearrange. Then I get an email saying my email address won't be able to be used anymore in a couple of months because I don't have a contact with talk talk! Unbelievable. Going to another provider.

    Dire customer service. Call centre based in South Africa. Cant handle anything complicated. Perfect illustation of the "computer says no"saying to queries. Broadband very average. They tell you what characters to use in your password. This wouldn't be neccesary if they looked after your Data securely. Counting the days to contract end

    Talk talk is the worst internet and service provider in the UK. Avoid them at all costs. They flat out lie to you to convince you to sign up and once you're trapped in a contract refuse to actually provide the service you were promised or even try and help you. A customer service manager kept shouting at us telling us it was our fault our service was cut off and called us stupid. I am autistic and she continuously talked over me and refused to listen to what I was saying, which caused me to break down. The service is inconsistent and don't expect anything more than the bare minimum speeds they specify, they never actually hit the mark you sign up for. For me it was quite literally a painful experience dealing with talk talk, we are genuinely excited to never have to deal with them again!

    Internet does not work at all and Netflix was not working from the very start, saying there is no Internet connection. We have only been with talktalk for a few days but to cancel we have to pay the full price for the whole year.

    Where to start? It has been SO awful, that even the process of trying to leave TalkTalk has been incredibly distressing…
    - There was a fault with my broadband that took 2 and a half hours of phone calls and online chats, over a few days, to get resolved.
    - They would tell me the fault was resolved and then it would happen again.
    - Every time you contact them it takes 10-15 minutes before the issue can actually be discussed (they have to spend ages waiting for your account to come up on their screen and it takes ages to get through their security).
    - Every time you speak to a new person (they pass you from team to team and back again), the issue has to be explained all over again.
    - It is very difficult to understand each other. I would explain the issue and they would usually misunderstand (with the exception of when I managed to get through to a manager. Often I was unable to understand what they were saying).
    - During all this I was told I had 'some orders' in process. I had not placed any orders. They told me I had 'done one click' on an email I'd been sent and placed an order for something. I had not. They did not believe me. I later checked my email and I hadn't even opened any of the sales emails from TalkTalk in recent months. They said they would cancel said 'order' (surely it can't even be legal for someone to make a legally binding action through one click on an email?).
    - This led to a conversation about pricing. I had come off fixed term and was then paying a ridiculously high price each month. They offered me a better deal. I agreed to go ahead with this and start a new fixed term contract. When the time came around for this to have started, I checked my bill: I was now paying even more than before...
    - I had three different conversations with them about this ranging from 1-2 hours long each. They denied that they had agreed a new fixed term contract with them with this price. One of the advisors even said that the 'one click order' had never been cancelled and concluded that what the person had agreed with me over the phone was just to continue with the 'one click order' that had apparently been on my account. This of course does not make sense since I was still on a rolling contract, although I did now have the faster fibre, just at an extortionate price...
    - Instead of the refund for my overpayment, I was offered a 'goodwill gesture' of £10 that nowhere near matched what I was actually owed.
    - They offered me a new contract that matched what had been agreed weeks before. In addition to the better price, I would be on a rolling contract rather than a fixed term contract. I asked the advisor to email me the offer this time since I could not trust the verbal offer after what had happened last time. He said he was unable to send emails, and eventually agreed that one of his colleagues would do this. I never received an email. When I called them again they knew nothing about the offer, and denied that it was possible.
    - During all this I asked for copies of a couple of 2018 bills since in 'My Account', only the last 12 months-worth of bills are available. When they arrived they were 2019 bills and had a strange town included in the address field.
    - They agreed the lower price, but with a fixed term contract. I explained I would go ahead but would take my complaint to the CEO since they were still not acknowledging that they owed me money and had failed to put in place the new contract that had been agreed, and had denied they had ever owed it to me. I was told that if I pursued my complaint then the 'goodwill gesture' would not be given to me.
    - I told them I would switch to another company and asked them to escalate my complaint further. They said they would and that I would receive a phone call. I received 3 strange phone calls from an 0800 TalkTalk number at different times that literally rang my phone for half a ring and thus were impossible to pick up.
    - In the meantime I arranged to switch to Vodafone on 17th Feb. Then Plusnet offered me a better service. I cancelled Vodafone and was told that Vodafone manage the communication with TalkTalk so I did not need to do anything.
    - On 17th Feb my Internet connection stopped. When I called TalkTalk (strangely, I still had a phone line, and still do even writing this!) it became clear that my complaint was still open but that they were not interested in responding to it. I was passed from team to team and in over the space of 16 hours I spoke to 7 different people. In that time I was told lots of different things like 'maybe the openreach exchange is being upgraded', 'I can see your line is still active'. It wasn't until I spoke to a manager that I was told what had happened: they had disconnected my internet because they were told by another provider that I was moving to them on that date and said they were not aware that this had been cancelled. I was told there was nothing that can be done because the line is now disconnected and to have internet I would need to start a new contract with them (not a chance!).
    - I did explain to them that because my Plusnet contract doesn't go live till March, they would otherwise have two weeks of extra custom from me, but, computer says 'no', of course. During the 96 minute conversation I looked up prices for buying extra data from my mobile phone provider and decided this was a far better solution in the interim anyway, since the silver lining is: I AM NOW FREE OF TALKTALK!
    I hope I have been able to give you a sense of how crazy-making these experiences with TalkTalk have been. I felt beyond frustrated, and violated, since as far as I am concerned they have actually stolen from me, having gone back on what they agreed, and then denied all of this and not giving me full reimbursement for the resulting overpayment. To have to spend hours and hours getting anything resolved is just soul-destroying, especially when they have such a non-accountable attitude. I can't imagine any circumstances under which it would be worth getting involved with this company in any shape or form. I am writing this in the hope that I can prevent others from having the experience I did.

    I am only here to advise anyone who is considering signing up to talktalk not to. This company is by far the worst internet provider for numerous reasons. I have been paying for a service which in return didn't provide what it was meant to and I genuinely feel like I've been swindled out of my money. Please avoid giving your hard earned money to this company.

    Was with Talk Talk for many years before moving to France for 7 years. On return I thought I might as well return to them. Wrong move. Internet drops off many many times a day. Had issues the other day as I couldn't reach a couple of sites I need. I realised that it was Talk Talk's problem as I couldn't access via my laptop, my husband's laptop or my phone. Was told to contact the sites as it was their problem. While on the phone I tried using my mobile data via O2 and surprise surprise reached the sites immediately. They took my virus alerts off and I was able to access them. The same day I phoned again as the speed was of little use, like old dial up. I was told it was my devices !!!! So, got on to BT and am changing over on the 27th and can't wait for that day to come. All in all I spend 4 1/2 hours on the phone to Talk Talk before I couldn't bear it any more. If you want to be diagnosed with blood pressure then a 6 month period of being with Talk Talk is recommended.

    I really can’t give them any stars - they are the epitome of a pathetic excuse for a broadband provider. Customer service is a waste of time and their Superfast fibre broadband is at best useless. Try advertise up-to 79 Mbps and yet we consistently get at best dial up speed. The worst internet provider ever in the history of broadband providers. At least Dick Turpin wore a mask!

    Since 2013 Talktalk have been overcharging me for a line and broadband on a rented property. In brief, we were suppose to be provided a 10meg line and I now understand from all the tenant complaints and learning about speeds that we are receiving 2.4meg which is extremely bad in todays terms.



    I have been paying £45 per month for years and have no phone at the property, after complaining and not receiving a bill in years which they advised me to check my email which I did check, again still nothing recieved since I opened my account in 2013.



    I asked for a refund and they provided a complete load of cobblers, I been ripped off, overcharged and on top of this all insulted.



    My argument is, how many others are not being provided the speed and services and being charged for a poor service??



    I have cancelled and advise all people that there are far much better providers out there then talk talk.



    Plusnet offered me fibre for £21, it really upsets me that I have been paying £45 for 2meg line, disgusting and in all honestly, I've not even had a letter or email back following my formal complaint, daylight robbery!



    Goodluck if you use them....I'm as honest as they come.

    I have no words to describe this company. Often the speed drops below the guaranteed and frequent deficiencies in the supply of internet ... By calling the helpline every time they have to restart the router. I am glad that I moved to another company ...

    This company is in my opinion run by gangsters,or at least they act like them. Today when after spending hours sorting a faulty broadband connection via there overseas call center, they finally traced the fault over the line to my BT wall mounted connection box. Its seems the boxes built in filter has developed a fault.They then said that I needed an engineering visit and it would cost me £40. I went ballistic pointing out that the box has nothing whatsoever to do with me and is from BT as part of the line rental. They then had the audacity to say that I had somehow broken the box. The wall connection box is in perfect external condition and lives behind furniture in my study. They have now agreed to to a free visit after I turned nasty.
    This company are absolute rubbish who hide from their customers in overseas call centers.Do not go with them as you will surely live to regret it.

    Still not managed to get it working!
    I was lured by the cheap internet high speed fibre cost.. More fool me. My switch from Sky to Talk Talk sounded straight forward enough, seeing as I already had the latest Openreach master socket and was switching to the same high speed fibre service... How wrong was I. The new hub arrived just the day before the engineer was due and the switchover scheduled last Friday... The engineer turned up 5 hours early (lucky i was in). Told me I was good to go and to phone Talk Talk to get it activated. I phoned Talk Talk who after an extremely frustrating discussion told me I had to wait up until midnight for it to go live. So I left it all plugged in, my phone still worked. The next day still no internet... So I phone back. Oh, I now need to wait until Monday, so no internet all weekend. They didn't tell me Sky was still active, so by accident I tried that old Sky hub and it still worked. Phew.. Monday comes and I saw an Openreach guy in the green cabinet down the road working, then suddenly no phone line (dial tone), no sky, so I think oh, I'll plug the Talk Talk hub back in. Nothing works now not sky, Talk Talk or my phone line. Hours of frustrating phone calls later and repeating myself and the customer service finally agree to raise an Openreach fault so an engineer can investigate. This by the way is still not fixed. I had to insist on speaking to the persons manager before they would raise a request for an Openreach engineer. To do this they run through hours of scripted conversation from their call center in India (which turns out isn't even a Talk Talk service center but a 3rd party). Then "Nadia" kept me on hold for about 20 minutes whilst I waited for her manager who mysteriously had to go to a meeting but authorised my engineer (They wanted to charge me by the way to have an engineer fix a service that had never actually worked). I have not dealt with such an incompetent company before in my life. If I thought I could switch somewhere quickly I would but I think leaving them would be just as arduous. Please just avoid this shambles of a company for your own sanity. I am still without any phone line or internet and am losing my own time and money trying to fix this for my family and me. If it ever works I might update the speed rating...

    Had another issue with talktalk again this week. Giving me a customer service charge for a late payment when I actually paid before the deadline. The customer service agent who I spoke with regarding this issue even tried to convince me that a £5 reduction on the service charge was a gesture of good will. The customer service agents on call can't even understand English and have no interest in resolving situations.It's not the first time this has happened and I cant wait for my contract to end and be rid of this broadband company for good.

    If I could I wouldnt rate them at all. They dont deserve any stars. Not had proper broadband for 3-4 months now. I have been going round and round in circles with them saying maintenance is fixing the issue, messaging me saying it's fixed when it clearly wasnt. I have switched the virgin now. And will be ensuring I have written evidence that my contract has been cancelled. DONT GO THERE, AVOID THEM!!!

    The worst provider in the UK. Absolutely no stability. Don't ever use Talk Talk services. Peace.

    4 years on TalkTalk never been asked to get new router. Every time speed is 0.1Mbs - 0.85Mbs.
    Ask for help many times no ones help.
    Looking for new supplier and TalkTalk never suggest to any one . The poorest service . Customer service very bad . Sad for waisting money.

    upgraded to talktalk faster fibre broadband and gave me a new router .. router initially failed to connect to the internet took 2 hours to find remedy on online and telephone chats .. day after internet was still constantly crashing 2 more hours wasted .. Talktalk state average speed should be 38Mb but speed checker only shows 20 now they are going to arrange for a free engineer call ... frustrated

    Unbelievably atrocious.

    Statements like, "void the contract and delete my details," and, "I am no longer a customer of talktalk," are apparently not clear enough to qualify as cancellation (even if you open correspondence with them by registering a complaint and asking them to convince you not to cancel).
    But they won't tell you this, they'll wait two years, sell off a "debt" to collection agents, and claim they have no evidence of your statements..because they deleted the correspondence, the complaint and the accompanying message chain.

    Never have I been so glad to be a hoarder of correspondence.

    Also, appears team members, and team leaders, in the CEO complaints division are unaware of some fairly basic things of great relevance to their work, up to and including talktalks own customer complaints code of practice lol.

    I'll, eventually, be taking talktalk to court.
    The lawyer says I should wait for my deadlock letter, head through CISAS, then get talktalk in court to try and defend themselves. I'd describe the lawyers' current attitude as, "laughing all the way to the bank," lol.

    Do not ever enter in to a contract with talktalk, they will not provide what they promise, they will obfuscate and outright lie, and they will ignore your requests to cancel.

    Never has a company been so deserving of a negatively starred review.

    Talk talk. What can I say that hasn’t already been said, they are an awful provider. I have spent 6-8 weeks with little or no connection. The live chat is pointless, twitter support is worse, they eventually get you through to ‘ceo’ support. None of these people do anything to resolve your issue. Lots of talk and questions, never a resolution. Just do not bother with them pay the extra for Sky and BT.

    I am sure talktalk will post a reply about ‘contact us’, ‘we are sorry’ get the message folks, get some engineers and people who can actually fix issues. Not these low paid customer service folks who want to be your mate. Your killing your customers.

    They are phoning me night and day to try and get me to take their broadband. Keep telling them I am happy with who I am with but they are not listening. Keep blocking them but they keep using different numbers. I hate to think how they treat you once you have a contract with them!

    Today my internet was cut off for no aparant reason or without warning at 1.20pm. I called the customer help line and found the person rude and evasive. She informed me that there had been restrictions on my account. I found this very strange because I had called talk talk earlier that day at 8.20am to pay my set bill. I immediately asked to be put throught to a manager or someone who can help me. I then spoke to mike from technical support who was understanding and patient who truly understood what I was going through I explained the situation and he calmly explained it happeneds all the time and that it's a common thing he totally defused the situation and helped me get back online. I found this to be great customer service because I was not happy with my internet being cut and I was very close today switching broadband networks.

    Shout out to mike from technical support your a legend mate and deserve a raise.

    After a while, broadband starts getting unstable. Usually just before an ad campaign for expensive upgrades. It then takes ages to work your way through customer service until you finally get to technical support who can adjust te signal to noise ratio. Then it works again. We had this 3x in the last 4 years, and every time they try to sell us an upgrade first...

    They were charging me to find my mobile without it going to answering machine, because I hung up when I heard where it was. I had a conversation with the customer service, they contradicted them selves over and over direct lying to people, just think if they do that to all customers they could be making billions per year. When some of us could do with that extra pound or two here and there.
