      No backup for their own site. Would they treat their punters any better? Thought not. As for their sales teams: my tortoise has more technical expertise.

      They make even BT (in Plus.net mode) and Sky look good. Not sure about Virgin. If only Ofcom were empowered to shoot failing ISPs they would be doing a public service for once.

    Using the word "actioned" should be grounds for a bullet between the eyes.

    Their mail was wonky yesterday (intermittent access to the SMTP server to send mail, and late/delayed arrival of incoming mail).

    BUT (!!!), I did quickly get through to a support person to report this and was kept updated with the progress on working to a fix.

    TALK TALK - TAKE TAKE - THE THE - XXXX - XXXX

    I don't check my account much on TT but every time I do there seems to be an ISSUE.

    I'm now starting to think that I should reluctantly give in and move to the Murdock Empire as I never hear anyone complain about SKY service itself.

    TAKETAKE!

    FOR...

    The TalkTalk website is unavailable right now. Sorry we are currently facing technical issues, our engineers are working hard to fix it. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

    It's completely broken and we don't know why. Our engineers are all at lunch down the pub, just Matt, the work experience newb is holding the fort. We don't care because you pay by direct debit.

    Just come up on the BBC that the site was hacked and 4 million records are affected.

    Amazing how companies can have public facing websites that can easily access personal information that, really, shouldn't be accessed.

    But it's OK, the ICO will come in and give them a slap on the wrist.

      "Just come up on the BBC that the site was hacked and 4 million records are affected."

      that was six months ago. Or is this yet another hack?

      Strange think is, the AOL UK site is up and running, hard to understand how that isn't also affected

        Nope it's another case, The Reg (Finally) reported it.

    Meanwhile...

    Shall be so glad when this is over so Talk-Talk can then find time to explain why they recently sold my name to a rent-a-thug debt recovery agency for an unpaid account that I never signed up for at a flat I moved out of over six years ago.
