Talk Talk on BBC Watchdog

So how will this appearance on Watchdog effect the TT broadband offer? And may even the CarPhoneWarehouse in general?

Not a lot I would imagine.

I think Talk Talk made a bit of a mistake by advertising free broadband. They probably knew the amount of interest it would attract, but they probably didn't realise it would be such hard work to supply all these people and keep them happy. To be honest I don't think their systems can handle the demand because of all the people trying to connect and it looks like it's causing problems. They're probably doing their best to sort problems out but there's so many now that they can't cope.

Didn't strike me that the head honcho looked too concerned.

He seemed unable to suppress his wide grin at the level of business generated.
