I was approached in a shopping center in Dundee by a rep for TalkTalk. The guy was really nice and told me the deal and what was involved and I thought it was pretty good for me, a student.
However, I wanted to look at what other deals there were as I am just using a dongle at the moment and it really isn't great. I said this to the man and asked how long he would be there for. He told me that they were only there for ONE day as this was a one day promotional deal.
I thought the deal was pretty good and I even got my mum to speak to him on the phone to see what she thought and she thought it sounded good so I decided to go ahead with it.
Now, the next few days I had to go into town but I always pass through this shopping centre to stay in the warmth and low and behold guess who was there? TalkTalk! And the same reps I had spoke to also. I was really naffed at this as I felt I had been pressured into going with TalkTalk but thought nothing more of it.
I was speaking to my dad, however, and mentioned that I had signed up with them and straight away he said "are you kidding?". I very much trust my dad when it comes to things like this but he said if you think you are getting a good deal for you then go ahead with it but have a look at the reviews so I did and here I am.
I have now cancelled TalkTalk because I don't want to start my broadband not trusting the company. However, the woman I spoke to on the phone was nice enough, even after telling her why I was cancelling as I told the truth, and had no problems doing so (even when she tried to persuade me also to stay on till the day before my go live date while I looked at other braodband deals). That is why there is another star on this review :P I thought it best to cancel straight away as I would rather go with people's views on this and feel safe than keep going with it thinking maybe it might be ok for me. But I have learnt my lesson and even if I think its a good deal, always see what else there is first because you have no idea if these people are telling the truth or just to trying to get you to buy.
