[access-uk] Re: Talk Talk Offer

Kevin, I wasn't going to comment on this one till I read your email. A friend of mine had a cold call from them a couple of months ago, trying to persuade her to transfer from BT to them. She said she was interested but that she'd want all the materials in braille before she'd transfer. The person on the phone told her that there would be no transfer until she contacted them and that in the meantime they would send her all the info she wanted in braille.

She never got any information and worse still they transfered her without her knowledge or permission and now insist that she has to pay them three months line rental. It took two weeks to get her phone off Talk Talk and back to BT.

My advice don't touch them with a very long barge pole.

they've already under estimated the take up! so doesn't bode well for the future stability. apparently take up was 5 times greater than they'd planned for. there's an article about it on
www.adslguide.orgg


and as for an 18 month contract! they can go jump in the nearest river. we had the original talktalk phone service briefly last year and i wouldn't touch them with a barge pole unless i had concrete evidence their customer services so far as disabled persons goes has improved out of sight! no punn intended! smile.

It looks like a "bleeding" contest to see who can stand the longest without falling over. There is likely to be a hidden gotcha in there somewhere. Is it really sustainable and will it stand the huge rush of potential customers joining.the service at once assuming they are in the 75 percent of the country where it can be had.

Hi All
