    as far as I can see on the net the general gist is dont touch em with a bargepole. Think they might have even graced watchdog's time slot.

    Talk Talk are part of Carphone Warehouse. Also includes Onetel.

    When they launched a few months back the public response basicaly overwhelmed them. Hence lots of whingeing all over the place, and references to various official and trade bodies.

    Don't forget that people are much more vocal about complaints than compliments! :biggrin

    They are still stuggling a bit, and with BSkyB and Orange entering the market they are up against some stiff competition.

    I used them before they offered this free broadband nonsense and the quality of service was great. Where I really had problems was, like most telcos, when I had to speak to one of the chimps in the call centre. I think at the moment, they are struggling to provide a decent servie because of the overwhelming demand for their free broadband offer. I don't think anyone's got a right to moan if they have to wait for a couple of months for a free 8mbps connection though.
