TalkTalk broadband

I've been with TT since 2006 when I think broadband was available free for those exchanges which were unbundled.
I have only just discovered that my local exchange has now been unbundled.
1st question:
Am I being naive in thinking that I should now have free bband?
2nd question:would someone care to give me a hint of their ISP monthly bill? I pay TT about £35/month for line rental,24/7 free phone calls,8MB/s BB (supposedly). Does that seem reasonable?

With 24/7 free calls, I would say it sounds reasonable.

reasonable, probally not, I pay £22.00 for the same including line rental, after paying extra for calls outside of the 01.02.03 Nos my bill averages about £24.50. When the time is right ask for your mac No.to move, and then negotiate a new deal.Best of luck.

Hi ventad.
Would you care to whisper your ISP?
Cheers.

same as you

How on earth did you manage to arrange such a good deal? They're obviously taking me to the cleaners, as we used to say.
Where is Stuartli these days? He was always a great fan of TT.

I have been with TT on a BT line rental for 7 years and have just arranged a house move taking on TTs landline, 40 gig monthly usage and an alledged 10 mbs and 24/7 free calls for £23.03 per month.
So take ventad's advice.

I pay same as ventad and am also with TalkTalk.
If exchange has been unbundled you now need a new deal. You take out Essentials package £6.99 + 12.04 line rental and then add on any extra packages at £* per month depending on what you want. Have a snoop around the website click here

They are screwing you big time! probably because you haven't questioned them or tried to re-negotiate, for what you have you should be paying about £24 per month. I am also with TT for phone and BB (80 GB download) Bill is about £24-£25.

I am on TT and just get Free Evening and Weekend call. My bill is from about £19 to £23 depending if I make may daytime calls. I am on 8 Meg but BT is fitting Optic fibre cable that will then allow me to get up to 20 meg free with TT, When they BT connect the cables
