I'll give the Talk-Talk BB offer a go

  dagbladet 12:16 23 Apr 2006

I'm giving it a go. I already have Talk Talk 2meg (unl) BB and Talk Talk landline for £20. I pay my line rental (£11) to BT. So for the sake of a couple of mouseclicks it seems I should gain unlimited landline calls to 28 countries and my BB speed could potentially increase by up to 8meg, although I am 700 metres from the exchange. My line rental now goes via CPW. I should be paying £10 less a month. 2 days in and I have recieved my first disappointment, on 'tracking my order' I see that my line speed is not estimated to increase until Dec 2006. Funny how when I checked my number prior to signing up, I simply recieved a catagoric 'YES', and no mention of any delay, certainly not 8 months!. Anyway I will keep you all informed.

The "Yes" was to indicate that you could receive the free broadband (as part of the £9.99 TalkTalk International 3 package) and not have to temporarily take up the £10 offer.

Right so i'll let you all know how it goes then.

By the way, I'm curious to know how you tracked your order as this feature has been disabled for several days now...:-)

  dagbladet 22:59 23 Apr 2006

It's disabled on the offer page, but if you log into the 'my account' page it works...or vice versa

  Stuartli 23:08 23 Apr 2006

Thanks for that. I've tried all ways over the past few days and still no joy now...:-(

Tried it in Internet Explorer rather than Firefox and it worked...:-)

However, I never did get a confirmation e-mail, although I'm told my line will be speed upgraded on June 5 (my birthday!) if I am already a TalkTalk customer.

Have to hope that One.Tel counts...

Just had a letter from One.Tel (TalkTalk One.Tel) stating that my Select telephone service will be discontinued on May 4th.

Fearing that one organisation hadn't a clue about the other's involvement, I've checked it out on the 0800 number provided and apparently I go onto TalkTalk International 3 on May 5th...:-)

>>Once you get your telephone and ADSL for £21/month>>

Don't forget that includes your £11 BT rental...:-)

You are as equally pessimistic as my other half, but I have always managed to prove her wrong over 40 years of wedlock to date...:-)

Hear exactly what your saying. I'm having a bit of a gamble on this and it could very well go pear-shaped but, what the heck, i'll give it a bash and let you all know what happens.
