    Absolute disaster, called them multiple times and they told be it will be better but it ******* is not. Low downloading and uploading speed, really high ping constantly jumping over 100, disgusting.

    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!

    If you wish to have your internet service constantly cut off and have to speak to rude and unhelpful call centre staff (when and if you actually ever get through to them) then talk talk is the provider for you. Not even worth a one star rating.

    The most useless customer service I have ever experienced, they hang up on you without resolving anything or pass you from one person to another and you have to start all over again. Disgusted, at lest I can see from the reviews here I am far from alone.

    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.

    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.

    Totally useless. They have the cheek to have a black Friday type sale while their email is down again for the 100th time. I cannot get in to my emails since last night.

    I switched to Talk Talk because the package they offered me sounded good, however once activated, I was then told by their support people in India no static IP address was available, (not what the sales person told me!) the broadband speed was also slow and then trying to get my broadband back was only accomplished with lots of help from BT, thanks BT....forget Talk Talk!

    Absolute disgraceful service from Talk Talk. Getting less than 10mb (sometimes less than 1mb) on a 76 Fibre Line. Passed from one useless advisor to the next. and promised 2 callbacks, neither one being followed through on. Finally managed to get an engineer callout after threatening to cancel, and even then the closest one is 2 weeks away. Clueless staff who just read off a script and can barely understand my issue.

    I honestly don't know where to begin with my review, other then saying Talktalk are beyond the worst company I have ever had the misfortune to deal with. They let a man who was imprisoned for stalking me change my router name to I was a slapper, then without my permission continued my contract when it ended and over charged me, when I was previously paying £45 for the standard package, they put it up to £79 a month. They also have called me by the name of Tina on more then one occasion, leave me on hold for hours then cut me off, and I cannot seem to get through to the correct department to cancel this terrible part time working service I pay over the odds for. My review is DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!

    So awful. Used the online chat to register for broadband and the advisor couldn't keep information straight. I'd ask a question and get one answer which meant I was happy to proceed then later in the conversation they'd go back and say that the earlier answer was completely wrong and act like they had no clue where I'd gotten the information from even though you could scroll back up and see the whole chat. The advisor that day said I would receive a confirmation email and a second email to set up a password for my online account within 48 hours. Then that a welcome pack would arrive within 3-5 days. Been over 4 days now and the only email I've had is an automatic one with direct debit terms and conditions. Speaking to another advisor by online chat and all previous information was wrong, no apologies just the attitude that obliviously I shouldn't be complaining about not having received anything yet. This advisor says they won't look into why I haven't had a confirmation email until its been 6 days (much more then the 24-48 hours advised before) and that the online account can't be activated until the broadband is live so at least 2 weeks once I've received my router in the post etc. Last advisor has said I could use my online account to track the order but apparently I can't access it until the order is already delivered and the service active. In the same conversation with the same advisor I've given 3 different dates for when the same service would be available, completely insane that these people are meant to be providing information and are able to sign you up for services. God knows what I've actually been signed up for and whether it is what I agreed to. No idea how long the welcome pack with all terms and conditions is going to take to come. Given your ability to change your mind about the service without incurring costs is dependent on doing so before the service activates it seems like they are trying to hide the terms and conditions long enough to stop them being reviewed before charges start. Just been told that there is no error or issue despite the fact they have 'sent' an email to the correct email address but it has not arrived to my inbox, spam etc. and obviously based on this success I should have complete confidence that the welcome pack will arrive. And been told its just something that sometimes happens, not all customers receive the confirmation emails despite them showing as sent their side? If it wasn't such a well known name I'd think the whole thing was a scam and be calling the bank/canceling the payment card because the whole thing is run so awfully

    One star is too much for you, you are absolutely unbelievable and it's beyond me how you lie in your advertisement, your not a fixed price at all and the broadband is simply rubbish. Your team and advisors are bad mannered and don't help what so ever. Talktalk is the worst descision I ever made.

    Reporting a problem to a Manila call centre is a joke. They are unprofessional and do not know what they are talking about. Afire the called complaining about extremely slow fibre broadband, could not connect to Netflix either. Speed tests where carried out and it was agreed that I was not even getting half the speed promised. I was told that the router will be adjusted from Manila and that I should switch off for half hour and then turn back on. Asked if problem persists, she said to call back to arrange for an engineer. Called back as it was still not working, guess what, had to go through the same thing again and no engineer booked as I gave to carry out three ping tests over a period of three days......To be continued

    Absolutely disgusting.
    I ordered the internet with talktalk since the end of april, and i've never had the internet.
    countless phone calls, huge phone bills because the housephone doesnt work also.
    theyve booked technichians to come who havent bothered to show up but yet they tell me if im not here for them they'll charge me £60 odd.
    ive been asking them via facebook to ring me for the past week and half, they have said they cant ring me. LOL.
    ive paid my bill even when i havent had the internet i think their disgusting. i'm fuming.

    If it isnt sorted soon i'm cancelling my direct debit.

    An appalling service who choose to prioritise their money flow over their customers. Over the course of the past two months I have been charged a gargantuan £40 each month compared to the usual £8 and when I enquired about this via their telephone service they simply dodge the question and go as long as possible to retain their undeserved money and don't even look at the problem from the customer's perspective. Considering that I have been a customer for years I am absolutely appalled by how they treated me and their attempt to combat the problem by saying they'll give me a small tiny fraction back only highlights this ridiculous company, their shambolic customer service and their total ignorance of customer loyalty. I will be parting service from the buffoons and transfer to another service provider because to be quite frankly honest I have no idea how I have lasted this long with garbage company.

    Talk Talk?! More like No Talk. Their customer service is the worst thing in the entire technological world. I was promised a call back from an advisor within a few minutes because her computer was being slow. I waited 30 mins for a call back. Rand the helpline again; the second advisor dropped the call! The third advisor then treated my entire query like it was brand new and started asking me the same questions, to perform the same tests I had done ten times over! I then got so frustrated that I demanded to speak to the manager. Who turned out to be worse than the advisors! Her tone of voice/attitude/lack of professionalism/lack of empathy left a lot to be desired. She treated our case like she was the one doing us a favour! She then resorted to booking an engineers appointment. At which point I said “if this doesn’t fix the issue then I would like to cancel my contract” - to which she replied “so shall I cancel your engineers appointment then?”

    TALK TALK customer service is SHOCKING.
    Their WIFI is slow.
    Their response time is slow.
    Their communication skills are non existent.
    They steal from you.
    They talk to you like they’re the ones who are the aggrieved.
    WASTE OF MONEY.
    NEVER GO WITH TALK TALK

    Finally got through to customer serviceis where I logged a complaint. And all I got was a “I’m really sorry this happened we will do our best to make sure it doesn’t happen again”.

    8 months of internet problems, 6 engineers requested 4 actually came out and still not fixed, 8 months of phones calls empty promises, not sending equipment, the latest 2 engineers not turning up, still charging full price for a crap service, not even being offered reduced rate until fixed. Owed 8 months of compensation going elsewhere for a reliable service!!!

    Worse experience I ever had in broadband and phone service. When we complain about the service, for couple weeks the service could improve but after that there is no comments for that...when we talk about costumer services...they are worse than you can imagine, in my opinion they do not have enough trained staff to take care about their services...and when you want to leave, they have always something behind to get new charges...no really recommended for anyone...spent over 5 years with them but if I would broke a leg on that moment when I made the contract with them at this time the leg was already good.

    Cheap fees tempted me into getting TalkTalk internet but they never will again. We were charged early termination of contract fees despite the fact that we need not terminate our contract early. It took 5 letters (replied to by 5 different Customer Services Managers) and 2 15 minute phone calls before I gave up on getting my money back. They repeatedly said 'this isn't the kind of service we want you to have with TalkTalk' without actually doing anything to resolve my problems. In fact, they kept responding in ways that showed they had no understanding of the problem at all.
    Unless you love writing complaint letters for the fun of it, I would strongly suggest avoiding this company.

    DO NOT CHOOSE TALK TALK.
    Absolutely abysmal service and treatment of vulnerable people.

    For 2 weeks my 80 year old grandmother who lives alone 4 hours away has been without any telephone service. Her friend lent her a mobile phoneto contact Talk Talk customer service and the waiting time alone ate her £10 credit. I have been on the phone to talk talk overseas call centres 4 times over the past week, which have a poor line and staff speak very basic english. Each time I am promised something will be done tomorrow and it has not been done.

    I am still waiting for my 80 year old grandmothers telephone line to be fixed.

    Please do not chose this provider especially if you are setting it up for someone vulnerable or you yourself are a vulnerable individual as they have a complete disregard and lack of care.
