    Praise for Talk Talk - Not kidding 10th Apr 18 at 2:38 PM
    Received bill for package of 38Mb fibre BB, line rental, TV Plus, Sky Sports and Anytime Calls today and noticed my discount for the latter has expired. Instead of 6 per month it is now 8.50. We are one third of the way through an 18 month contract so it would cost a fortune to leave and, having just done a price comparison on here, for a comparable package with no free calls, we would pay approx 50% more with any other provider.

    Nevertheless, being an MSE alumni as I am, I thought I would have an online "chat" with TT and try it on, expecting to be told politely to go forth and multiply.

    I won't lie, it took a lot of hanging about but, after 38 minutes and two operatives, the latter in the "Loyalty" bit, I negotiated another discount of 2 per month. Piddling small change? Yes, but the way it made me feel, like a valued customer even whilst stuck in the middle of a contract, has made my day. Professionalism and courtesy throughout, not bad for an overseas call centre.

    What does all this cost? 40 pcm in an area with limited providers. , Talk Talk.

    What is this life if, sweet wordsmith, we have no time to take the pith?

    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...
