Anybody remember all the hassle I had with TalkTalk last year? Well they called me up the other day, begging me to come back to them. Their selling tactics and excuses for their poor service were laughable. Here is just some of the rubbish they spouted to me before I hung up.

I still have nightmares about this company

When I informed them I had waited in excess of 3 months for my broadband, and still had no connection when I left, I was told
“Many TalkTalk customers have waited in excess of 4 months, and were even charged for the time they had no service”
Gee; I guess I was one of the lucky ones. Am I supposed to feel grateful?

Their reasoning on why their service is better than BT
“1 in 6 UK households is a TalkTalk customer – we must be doing something right”
1 in 6 households are customers. How many actually have a service?

They then went on to ask if I made international calls (which I don’t) and how much I spend on telephone calls each month (£0.00 – all calls are made via my mobile). When told they could knock I few pounds off my line rental, I replied “I wouldn’t have TalkTalk if it was free”, before ending the call.

I urge you anyone; don’t be convinced by this company. They screwed me over big time (luckily I escaped), and I haven’t been the only one bitten. You have been warned.

    It's just a shame you didn't go to Sky.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
