    I bet once they get the ok from the EEC they will start to try to shutdown the @tiscali.co.uk domains.

    Once that happens I think I will off to SKY......tv,phone and BB on the same package.

    I would imagine Tiscarli`s customers breathed a huge sigh of relief,getting away from probably the worse ISP in the universe and being taken over by the best.

    The competition is now growing and giving that lumbering,two-bit company, BT,who still live in the past,thinking they are a monopoly,a good kick up the a*re.

    They certainly are:

    Until recently I was on TT international evenings and weekends for £16-39 a month.
    I have now changed to TT Essentials for £17-74 a month but my 18 months contract continues as normal,until this Oct.

    For my £17-74 I get my line rental,up to 8 meg Broadband (average is 6.5megs),free evening and weekend calls,free LOCAL calls anytime,free international calls,anytime to 36 countries,and from 2nd June free 0870 & 0845 numbers within my calling package.
    Also because of the VAT being reduced to 15%,on my April bill I paid only £4-89 because of the £11-50p rebate TT gave me.

    ALL this for £17-74 a month,if anyone can tell me of a better deal than this ,shout up NOW.

    Silence

    That makes them one of the cheapest, not one of the best. Big difference, especialy as TalkTalk are one of the worst in performance and support according to pretty much every neutral comparison I have ever seen.

    edit:

    And from my own experiance as well.

    Who are you with,what do you pay, and what do you get?

    Nowhere near as much as I do. :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

    Ummmm can`t answer the question,probably paying twice as much for half the services.
    That`s real money saving,sucker.

    Seriously, can you read? Cheapest doesnt mean best. Which of those words confuses you?

    edit:

    and to answer being as you seem fixated on it. I pay under £18 a month for free E+W calls (thats I dont use due to my mobile) and my internet with... OK not sure on my download but I dont go near the limit, but its the up to 8 meg. I have no use for international calls at all.
    Its a retentions tariff with Plusnet.



    'Sucker', my 8 year old neice is more grown up than that.
