Really happy with the switch over. Had to have a new line installed, it went quickly with no problems. Some issues with unreliable wifi but over all good value.

The switch over was great. There was an issue but the engineer came straight out an contacted me to fix it straight away . The service is great and I’m getting the speed that I pay for one hundred percent. It’s amazing value for money, compared to my old provider I am so happy with TalkTalk. Has saved me a lot of stress and made working from home so much easier, best decision I made.

I needed broadband for home use, for online browsing and streaming. Joining TalkTalk was simple and the router was delivered quickly. Line and broadband setup by engineer was prompt, professional and on time.

I switched and was concerned about keeping my number . When I checked on line and called they said it was a safe process and my number would stay . It did. I find my new broadband value for money and very reliable I would thoroughly recommend So happy we moved to a reliable network.

The switch to TalkTalk has been faultless. The engineer was booked to come out, attended with no issues. The WiFi was switched on straight away along with the box. We have had absolutely no problem since switching over to TalkTalk and would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family. We will continue to use TalkTalk for a long time.

The installation was botched up, but that was by OpenReach more so than TalkTalk. An engineer was needed to reconnect the line but failed to find my home. Then TalkTalk drove me up the wall: first, they kept sending conflicting messages, the online order just said there were technical difficulties, and chat was 100% useless and infuriating. After an hour on chat and an hour on the phone with support, they manage to reschedule in a week (points for that, knowing OpenReach usual lead time). I still feel they gave me too hard a time and didn't do enough. The speed is OK, but wifi signal really low. I have less than half the bars in the living room, and none by the front door (forget the garden). This is unusually poor. New router stalls and has to be unplugged and rebooted once in 5-7 days on average. No issues with billing so far. Got 5 quid or so credit for install screwup.

All went well although it would have been good to have been asked what date I wanted the direct debit taking out of my bank. Speeds are adequate as I use this as a backup for my cable line and reliability seems to be good too. Unfortunately TalkTalk are not able to compete with the high speeds of my main provider.

At first I was worried as they said my connection may not be possible. Even called a 2nd engineer over it took the whole day but 100% worth it - they put in a brand new line, set it all up for me and even waited till my PC was switched on to confirm it was all connected for me. Great service, very happy I switched and would deffo recommend. I've now even got my dad onto TalkTalk too!

Delivery service completely messed up the delivery, so my switch took far longer than expected. Also wifi keeps dropping out for 20 minute stretches in the early hours of the morning - annoying as I work nights from home. The speed is good though, and overall i'm pretty satisfied.

Talk Talk is a decent broadband provider, and price wise it is reasonable as well. That said, in my area the speed is not as fast as TalkTalk advertised. But for me and my kids it is alright.
