Well if you are you can not sign up to Talk-Talk if your over 70. It's company policy so say Talk-Talk, as you may not understand the contract!!

Who reads contracts?
As silver surfers are in the ascendancy looks like they could be missing a chunk of business- if the statement is true -more likely a bit of scandal sheet guff.

Its not in there terms and conditions. There is a requirement to be 18yrs or over but no upper limit is set.

This could be seen as age discrimination and that's the way I see it.

Carphone Warehouse did state that occasionally elderly people might not fully understand the Ts and Cs and, in such cases, might advise that they brought along a friend to ensure that they appreciated the contract's implications.

If only occasionally,why discriminate against all over 70s

I would suggest that All age groups have difficulties understanding insurance policy contracts, but they are not discriminated against!

Well that will stop my folks signing up for it:-)

Seems to me that they should simplify their T&Cs rather than demonise a potentially very lucrative section of the market. The "silver surfer" makes up a very significant portion of Internet users.
