Hi,

I have a friend who has just signed up, and they were told, we will =

Hi Robin, Joan and all.

Maybe some of you have come across the Martin's Money tips website which =
is=20
certainly useful in many ways.

As he says, the service is not free but it is very competetive.

I dare say it is and that originally the service will work well but if a =

service is popular it often gets overloaded.  If you have been an =
internet=20
user since 1998, when Orangenet, later to be Onet, arrived, we saw =
internet=20
at the price of a local call with no extra cost for the first time.   =
You=20
may well remember that often people could not get through because of =
there=20
not being enough lines either at the ISP or at BT.

This has happened time and time again.  The same thing happened with=20
RedHotAnt, one of the first to offer an unmetered dial-up package at =
=A35 a=20
month.

There were broadband problems with Tiscali, wanadoo and others because =
of=20
lots of favourable reviews.  Plusnet who I am with seem stable enough to =
me=20
but the company is having significant difficulties keeping up with the=20
amount of technical calls it deals with.  The list goes on.

Talk-Talk is in my opinion a prime candidate for exactly this problem.  =
When=20
it does happen it will be bad because you rely on the company for your =
phone=20
as well.  I heard someone from Talk-Talk saying they had got 5 times =
more=20
subscription enquiries than expected so the backlog may take a while to=20
shift.  With the amount of advertising and hype explains this.  With =
enough=20
hype it is possible to sell almost anything.  Isn't that half the reason =
for=20
the so called internet bubble?

This is a broadband connection that could be used with Internet explorer =
and=20
Outlook/Outlook Express.  I would think Firefox web browser would also =

fine.  I am sure however that there are teething problems ahead for this =
ISP=20
Phone deal and would avoid it for now despite the competative price.

Cheers

Joan,

Funnily enough, I just happened to hear something on 5 live the other =
day about them, and that their customer service centres were based in =
India and were getting lots of complaints.

Doesn't mean to say their packages or quality of online access isn't =
good.

Think I'll stick to good old reliable BT myself.

Cheers, Robin.

Hi,
Does anyone know if the Talk Talk broadband connection is any good and =
would it be suitable for Outlook Express and Jaws?

Sounds a good deal but I haven't met anyone who has it yet.

Best wishes,

Joan.
