Talk talk have the cheek to charge me 65 for sending a bt engineer out because i phoned to say i had an internet problem and the bt engineer reported no fault on line.talk talk still not sorted out the problem of line dropping regularly. No better than virginmedia.

I've only ever heard bad things about talktalk. I'm with plusnet and i've never had any problems. The speeds are good, i can play halo5 or ESO on Xbox Live while also streaming the football on SkyGo on my laptop and my girlfriend can stream something else at the same time and it handles it brilliantly!

What steps have you taken to take it further with them?
To tell you the truth my internet and phone has went down a few times within 2 days and it is there problem not mine.
if you are paying them on time and been a loyal customer point this out to them that this is not your fault.

Reported fault several months back and Talk Talk were monitoring it and occasionally tweaking settings at their end. Give them due they do ring me up to ask how things are and I tell them the usual ok for day or so then slows down drops connection many times a night. They tweak it again and its ok--they say its balancing stability of connection with speed.
have cancelled standing order --they can come cap in hand for payment.
Interestingly their voice recognition software understands "shi*te internet" as it responded "your having problems with internet--is that correct"

Cancelling standing order could be dangerous, they used to be pretty quick in handing charges over to debt collection companies whether the charges were correct or not..

Ive sent you a pm fish, just want yo quiz you more about your setup etc, if open reach say no fault, maybe its local. But we still have to rule out local anyway.

ISP dont normally support work / business. I only know of BT for business, so they call most business connections domestic so there is no compensation when you loose the internet.

After a chat with Fish, we need to establish if its the router rebooting, or is it the internet connection dropping.
So we can do more after fish works out whats happening.
