    Get service. No surprise Bill to pay . Better speed than sky full service because they slow the speed down and claim it at the fastest.

    Perfect to be honest, never had an issue with our connection, we had multiple devices online at once and never had an issue, even down to cancelling everything was fair and simple

    My mother has this provider. It's pretty good the only thing that is annoying is no engineers come out and you have to do it all yourself. I'm amazed no ones bothered to review this company.

    I Don't recommend this broadband. Quite disappointedthat that at the beginning we've got promised a fast broadband and turns out that it is far too slow.+ 12 month contract. The internet does interrupt often with covid online lessons, especially wonderful (not)!! Thankfully hands down, it does not go off totally (that's why I give them 3 stars for the reliability). Also, contacted them few times about it. Customer service always good give them 5 stars for it. Sorry for this review but it's only fair for people to know.

    After being with it all for over a year I decided to switch providers due to my connection frequently going off. When I tried to resolve this with the company I was told I needed to prove this by going onto a laptop even though they were able to tell me several dates that it failed from their computer. After informing them I was switching due to their failure I was told I would still have to pay for the service due to being in a contract with them.
    Would definitely recommend to stay clear of this broadband provider

    Worst mistake cuming to this company as the broadband is rubbish kept dipping in and out couldn't play on my playstation or YouTube. Kept ringing up to sort it had 3 different engineers out they said its sort the problem but it did not work each time when phone up the customer service operator had a voice changer and sounded like a robot he was rude and disgusting they he spoke also Kept passing me yo 6 different operator but none knew what they were doing or talking about.They would not let us leave. I have learning disability and autism this made me feel really frustrated and angry had yo pass to my support work which in the end gad to shout at them as they font listern to whst ur saying plus we just hung had enough kniw I get no stops calls and emails from asking me to stay with them no thank you I would not advise anyone to go with this crap company.

    Luckily I am nearing the end of my contract and will avoid ever renewing it.I have never achieved more than half of the promised speed and upload speed most of the time is hardly registering.It is continually dropping out and almost unusable with an iPad.After hours of waiting to contact customer service the cost of trying to break the contract four months early was ridiculous and compared to other providers the cost of an alternative a faster service was to expensive..With what was promised when I initially signed up for this contract and what was supplied there is no way I would ever contemplate staying with them even if the price was acceptable.My main use was for very low for a security camera which is continually dropping out and then failing to reconnect because of the poor signal.

    Can honestly say these guys are the worst provider i have ever dealt with, was with them for 8 months and over those 8 months i can say collectively i had about 1 months internet. Its laughable once i phoned up to say the internet is working but not the phone and a manager who i was talking to said she was suprised i had internet because on her side it showing as being down. There was never a period for a day where i could say i had full coverage after months of complaining and sending emails and being dealt with by 2 different manager its the worst providers. Dont get me wrong the customer service wasn't terrible just internet and phone service is diabolical. What upset me the most is i cancelled my service and they have the cheek to send it over to debt collectors saying i owe them

    Do not go with them. You will regret it. They tell you different things, The internet is super slow and when you cancel it and provide proof they tell you nonsense on the phone but don't actually do it. We have complained several times every time they tell you different things and after months not being with them they still charge you and on the phone says that is not even your last bill. We only been with them for 2 weeks and didn't receive the fast internet we paid for. You will be blocked from our credit card.

    Lucky to get one star! Despicable company. Not received my box as was rushed into hozzy. Got let out after a while but they won't give me a refund. Apparently I should have let them know I was going hozzy. How could I?!!! I got offered a month free on my contract! Topping it off they're trying to charge me for an early exit fee... Absolutely ridiculous. Stay well clear. People will soon know what a useless company this is. All I want is what I am owed!!

    Don’t waste any time with them because sure as hell they will waste yours...

    All that’s going to happen is they will give you a dsl, but that’s all you’ll get. Aside from the bills and and the multiple problems that come with signing up with them.

    You will get the dsl because once they get that going they count it as being connected or live and from that day on if not the months leading up to it will be a living hell.

    P.s they put you live to enter you into a contract but you won’t get internet. Just a load of bills and a 150 quid call out fee only planned by them. And a disconnection fee for a connection you’ve never had.

    I dare you go with Italk. It would be the worst mistake your life!!!

    If it seems to be good tobe true then it likely is too be good to be true.
    I thought i bagged a good deal with fast fibre broadband, but oh no,this is THE most incompetent broadband company.
    Customer service staff are miserable and it really does come across they are working from home because some of them answer the phone like you've interrupted them.
    Processing is a joke. Today i received a letter for £65 bill for early termination of contract. This transpired whilst in my cooling off period and their diabolical service, i was shopped around for another quote. I told iTalk they then offered me a good deal and rectified the issues.
    I believed what i was told and subsequently cancelled the other service a month ago. iTalk then said they are UNABLE to cancel it their end so instead of dealing with the technical issue they have sent me a bill.
    Logic? None
    I phoned customer service twice today. Nobody can tell me the timescale for a call back.
    As soon as my contract ends i shall NOT be renewing it with iTALK. I may well have to pay more to another provider but iTALK are driving me insane!!!

    This company have no communication between each other, if you have to ring them on your house phone they charge you as they did me, fifteen pounds for ringing my own internet company is disgusting, I tried to complain, as at one stage I had to ring them, they kept me on hold, put me through to wrong departments and then charged me four pounds for the call, I rang and complained and got told that the person in charge was not moving from the charges they still stand. This company, has really bad customer service

    What a dreadful bunch these are. I cancelled my direct debit as I didnt have enough to meet the payment that month and they have constantly bombarded me with texts and emails sometimes up to 8 a day. So fsar this morning in 10 minutes I have had 4. I asked them to change the payment date they told me no they cant do that. I ve left them but when they knew I was leaving someone rang me to tell me I coudlnt do that there was still 14 days left on the contract and funnily enough offered to change my payment date. I told them no way was I staying and he got threatening then saying that I would owe them a cancellation fee of £200 my answer to that was good luck getting it. Also my broadband increased from 19.99 to £30 - a ridiculous price and it doesnt even work upstairs in my house did they care - NO

    Terrible terrible people never eveer use them anyone

    Didn't even want to put 1 star avoid this company at all costs. My bill was paid off my card by myself (direct debit failed so got put on payment plan paid off my card each month) without any knowledge they set up another direct debit and still taking payments off me on the phone, when I realised on bank statement and called them no apology no refund just an account in credit and they still proceed to take money monthly. Cancelled direct debit with my bank and they just set up another within days I have had to cancel my card to stop them taking more payments. Definitely switching

    Avoid at all costs, I have received repeated threats to take me to court, I refuse to pay for a service that was rubbish( putting it very politely) I repeatedly tried to cancel before the end of the cooling off time, and every time they fobbed me off until I was tied into a contract, I didn’t break the contract they did when not one person in my house could receive internet connection, vile customer service and no offer of resolve, they tried to get me to pay for another package, please do not use this company, they take hours to answer calls until you cancel and then all of a sudden they constantly answer you

    Worst provider in the UK. Lost connection more than I ever had it. Cancelled the contract and the Direct Debit, as I was getting no service at all. Then they committed FRAUD. I have never given this company my Debit Card details at all. Yet they have obtained them from somewhere and taken a subscription for £19.99 from my Debit Card. I have informed the Bank and am taking whatever action is needed. These people a have never seen my Debit Card but they have used the details to fraudulently obtain money, and we don't know how much more they will attempt to take. Will give you more details after hearing from my bank and the Police.

After many calls 2 engineers called out, never even told me about second until i got a phone call on the morning the 2nd engineer called out, stating he would call between 1pm-6pm, i told the agent, don't bother i have signed up with someone else, but hey ho an egineer called at 10 and said he would be 20 mins, then was told to cancel with new provider which i already paid money to or i would be charged any costs, they cancelled from their end, when after 4 hrs the chap got the internet working, i went straight back to new provider and signed again, 2x money still waiting on refund on the first cancelled payment, they said they would refund for lost time/internet my phone data was all used up lol, joke, now because i'm leaving they cannot do this, and because i cancelled direct debit they charge you £10 lol, no i must pay final £19.99, well they say they will persue this, even when i got home from work landline rang, has not for yrs lol, i'm Scottish you know the answer i gave them lol, stay well clear folks, really terrible internet speeds 0.02 mb lol what a joke it is now 11.0 my new IP will be about 16.0, legalised thugs, especially when you leave. They have no techinal staff just call centre people reading from a scripted screen. Stay

    Unless you have 3/4 weeks to wait for connecting and patiences of a saint when trying to communicate with the staff. It's a computer says no place of work. Stay away. Going to have to cancel before we even got I.

    Quite honestly, I am truly baffled as to why this company is still in business. We have had nothing but trouble since the day we signed up to them. Far too many issues to list. I am absolutely disgusted with them and judging by the amount of negative reviews it is obvious I am not alone in my opinion. Now to put oil on the flames, we are stuck with them, I would love more than anything to be able to walk away from this tin pot, unprifessional, lying, dishonourable charlatans and sign up to another service. They must be laughing all the way to the bank knowing they are receiving an extortionate amount of hard earned money each month from people who placed their trust in them.

    ***SCAM COMPANY***
    They do not deserve any stars. Had cancelled with them months ago and payments just kept coming out of my bank I cancelled my direct debit but they opened up another one every time I cancelled them and kept on taking payments without my authorization. The lies from customer service are just herendous ther is no help from anyone. The company are just greedy money hungry ******** who just want to line their pockets I would advise anyone to stay away from them
