      I think the difference is noticeable in different parts of the country - my parents Connect service is good 24/7. I can stream iPlayer HD at 7PM with no issues when I visit
      Yeah, although Sky are apparently still unbundling exchanges... so I may wait, or just move out.

      However Talktalk are opposed to the Digital Economy crap which gives them a plus in my books.

      Hi The only thing is with TalkTalk you have to move the phone over as well. The deal is Broadband and Phone plus Line free for 6 months Advertised on the Television at the moment.

      There's also a long contract length, a charge if you want to switch back and even then there's still a great chance that you'll get a bad service.

      TalkTalk's objection to the DEA is a smokescreen I think. They are trying to look good to their customers, but when it comes down to the nitty-gritty they will comply with the Law the same as anyone else. Their main objection is that they are expected to do the necessary for no payment. The are no angels ICO compares TalkTalk's anti-malware trial to Phorm | Security | News | PC Pro
