I moved house 4 weeks ago, gave talktalk 10 days notice of my move which is all they needed. I was only moving a few streets down the estate, and they said everything would be ok, they'd take care of it. As we were moving on a saturday, they would provide service the following monday. Happy days I thought. At the previous flat we had phone line and fibre.

Got told we couldn't keep same number and would need a complete new install for phone line, fibre etc.... I told them that was bollocks, as there was a line they could use at the new property as i'd tested it.

called a contact at BT who confirmed my suspicions that my old house and new house were serviced from the same green street cabinet, Was a simple exercise for talktalk to send an engineer out to change one pair of wires in the cabinet and change my address on the bill. I would've been able to keep same fibre service and telephone number, NO.. To fucking simple that!!

Monday, install date came, and went. no phone call, no fuck all. Took me till the thursday to get dial tone and outgoing calls on the line, and that was only thanks to a contact at BT. Took another week for incoming calls to be activated on the line with adsl. By this time i'm fucking fuming..... Tell talktalk wanna lodge a complaint, takes them a week to contact me. I know BT own the network, and they kept blaming BT for delays, but I'm not thick, I'd been liasing with BT and it was TalkTalk that was at fault.

Next I get an email saying my Fibre Engineer would be calling to install 6 days ago!!

Image

Its all sorted now, but believe you me, When my contract is up, i'll pay the extra to another service provider that will do exactly what they say on the tin. Wondered why it was so cheap... Customer service is fucking diabolical.

#RantOver lol :D

May not matter if Gumbs is only downloading HD porn films rather than uploading em. :rofl:

My 10 MB download is more than enough for my needs.

:hyenas: :hyenas:

I find the extra upload useful for uploading stuff to 'the cloud'. Especial video files and before you ask, no not homemade porn :)

You lot need to wash your fucking brains out with jayes fluid! you dirty fuckers lol!! :D

Porn? Have a menopausal wife biting at me ankles over anything and everything!!! I'm not after the speed, but the bandwidth, and with a bit more bandwidth, you generally get a bit more speed.

at the mo we have about 8 devices serviced by the internet, and the £10 fibre package offered by talktalk was great when we had it, bit poo this last month without it, but hopefully, i'll have less kids biting my ankles now why theinternet is so slow.

More users can be on higher bandwidth though without losing speed. That's how my brain sees it anyway. Pmsl.

Smeggy that's roughly the speed Sky say I'm getting. I'm sure its lower though but not done a speed test. With 4 phones, 2 ipods, my lappy and the sky box connected it isn't good. Especially if I wanna watch porn on my phone. :D

I use Opera browser on phone as it takes some kind of snapshot of a page. Meaning no moving images like the smileys here. :(

Info is sent down the wire at so many bytes per second Bandwidth and speed of data flow are exactly the same thing :thumb:

My connection is more than enough to stream typical porn vids thankfully :)

I could never use the Internet comfortably on anything but my computer setup. Even on Miss Smeggy's laptop it's a pain. :)

I'm still trying to decide to get 30, 60 or 100Mb/s from Virgin.

30 would be enough but for an extra fiver a month I can get double the speed with 60. 100 just seems over the top.

I think 60Mb/s.

Here's my speed. How do you manage Smeggy? It takes forever for updates. I think a slow speed coupled with a slow netbook is my problem also. :shrug:
