    Absolute shambles ...appalling customer service from staff l could not understand,mis information, hopeless product knowledge, hanging on the phone for over one hour while they went away to discuss my problem.
    The only plus point was the engineer who called, he was a diamond.

    Ordered business broadband and got an email soon after saying the order is in a state of rejection due porting issues on the line. Also received a telephone call regarding this issue and asked them to just leave it and cancel the order. They did not cancel the order and kept on trying to take over the line from my current provider. So decided to give them a call today and first person I spoke with transferred me to another department where I was on hold for about 35 mins and when someone finally answered he kept putting me on hold after asking for bits of information name, address etc etc. Total hold 1 hrs 16 mins and he tells me he cannot do anything because the details don't match. All I wanted to do was to check if the order had been cancelled successfully and if not to cancel the order. Never going with talk talk ever again. I have TV and broadband at home which I will be cancelling now. This company is not recommended at all.

    Won't recommend it to my worst enemy

    fro starts, the broadband itself often failed to meet its minimum Mbps. The contract is coming to an end, so I called the number provided on their website for cancelations (03451720088) but it connected me to the 'retention department'. They are obviously trained to make it as hard as possible for a customer to cancel their account, and probably lose out on financial incentives if the account is cancelled. They don't listen or speak to the customer in a professional manner at all and they don't cancel your account even when they said they would.

    It took me 5 phone calls, 3 and a half hours over two days to finally get an email from a manager confirming the cancelation.

    Connection cutouts every day. Being told I need to upgrade my package to get a stable internet. Being circled around for half an hour on the phone after asking to speak to management. Being told I'll be contacted by management multiple times and yet 3 days have passed with no call.
    2 Years ago I would have recommended this company to anyone, but now I would recommend people stay well away.

    Worst one i had since i was born. Less than 1GB upload and download, sometimes can't even watch videos on youtube which shows how hilarious this (thing) is. I rang customer service many times, 2-3 engineer was in my house, removed all the issues and it was fine for 2-3 weeks and same thing again and when i ring them and tell them that i want engineer they just talk rubbish that isn't even helping. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

    If I could give 0 stars for for some categories I would - 1 is definitely on the generous side.

    My advice would be to avoid at all cost. There are always better options than this company.

    ***Overcharging for Unused Services***
    I called TalkTalk on 22 Jan to inform I do not wish to renew my contract when it ends on 24 Feb. Spoke to the Retention Team giving more than 30 days notice. I assume they will do what is necessary on their end. I returned the router and TV box on 24 Feb via post and kept the receipt as a proof. However the Team did not process the cancellation. In the first week of March, I found out that TalkTalk continues to bill me for broadband services until 3-Apr. The Retention team checked its phone record s and discovered the non- processing though notice was indeed given on 22-Feb. It proceeds to end my service on 13-Mar. I am no longer using its service since all hardware has been returned. It insists I should pay the outstanding charges. I AM NOT LIABLE FOR YOUR RETENTION TEAM’S NOT CANCELLING MY ACCOUNT AFTER GIVING 32 DAYS” NOTICE.

    Honestly save you’re money and go elsewhere. I’ve had nothing but trouble since being with them and now I have to pay £130 for leaving talktalk when we had no internet connection the whole time!!

    I endured 18 months of dodgy connection, poor speeds and horrendous customer service. At the end of the contract agreed to switch to PlusNet. TalkTalk phoned a week later, said they'd offer me an unbeatable deal and did, and also said they'd contact PlusNet to cancel my application for me (The rep's name was Adam), and all seemed well. I plugged in the new router I received and had very fast internet for one day, the day following i was cut off. Apparently no one had contacted PlusNet to cancel the application, so i spent 4 hours on the phone to 5 different reps, until the last one who actually helped and said that i needed to call PlusNet to cancel the application. I proceeded to do that, although that took over an hour too. Phoned Talktalk back afterwards and confirmed the "cease" had been enacted. They then proceeded to tell me that they couldn't connect to the line so i'd have to run a new application and they weren't sure when i'd get internet back up and running at home. Now, in the grand scheme of things at the moment, this is very minor. But it still warrants a 1 star review as they should be providing a service and not false promises.
