Heard good things and horror stories...
Nothing much to say really - it provides internet access fairly efficiently for £14.99 a month.
I think you are going to get horror stories with any provider. I used to work in a call center for BT broadband, and it seemed like they were a shower of fuckwits. I doubt they were any worse than any other provider though (especially since most of the problems are down to BT infrastructure anyway, which is going to affect you whoever you go with, Virgin aside).
Paying about £18 a month for everything (broadband, free off-peak calls), including line rental.
I really liked the broadband pack they sent out with the router and everything, it was all in big print and designed for idiots - but it made everything very simple and I really appreciated it.
Their workman was amzingly punctual too. I was told any time between 9am and midday so took the morning off work, and he was there at 9 on the dot.
Cus tiscalli were fucking awful.
Talk Talk = Carphone Warehouse.
I'll let y'all decide if that constitutes a good thing or not.
CPW (as Talk Talk) bought AOL.
Tiscali bought Bulldog.
CPW (as Talk Talk) bought Tiscali
CPW spun Talk Talk off as a separate business in March.
Ah, according to Wiki, Tiscali got enveloped by CPW last year, merging with Talk Talk in the process.
Sensible, since IMO, the very name Tiscali is poisonous over here.
or tiscalli own talk talk
It means Carphone Warehouse (who use Talk Talk as the name of their internet operations) own Tiscali's UK operations.
like most companies.
