I have just moved house and I have no internet connection. It was fine prior to moving, but now I have nothing. The 'technical department ' suggested that it might be my items are faulty.  So my 4 TV's, 3 PCs, 3 phones,2 Now TV boxes and 2 Amazon Fire sticks are all now faulty? Sure.

Plus it has taken 3 hours of being passed between people to get nowhere. Not very happy. 

My phone says 'broadband service not enabled, contact your service provider for activation date', but they say it is activated.

Hi @Lou310781 

 

I have asked one of TalkTalk's OCEs to pick your thread up and investigate it for you.

The forum is not real-time 24/7 support, so depending on how busy they are & how many are working at any one time, this can take 24 - 48 hrs (excluding weekends & limited cover on Bank Holidays). Alternatively, you can call the call centre or use online chat. The posts are responded to in time/date order, oldest first. So the fewer entries you make on your thread now, the sooner they will pick it up.

To save yourself time, please make sure that your community profile includes your first & last names, broadband phone number & if possible an alternative contact number. This can be done by clicking on your Avatar picture then click on "My Settings" followed by:-

Personal Profile > Personal Information

Otherwise, TalkTalk will not be able to tie up your forum username to your broadband account. Only you & TalkTalk have visibility of your details.

It would be nice to get the service I pay for. If not then I may as well take my custom elsewhere. I have been with other providers before and they had very good customer support. They acted quickly, unlike TalkTalk. As I say, 3 hours of dialogue, going back and forth between departments is not very helpful. Especially when they say I wont have to give all the same information again, but I then do. The best bit was when I said I had no internet, then being asked if I was contacting them on my phones 4g or the wifi.

TalkTalk will not respond until Monday, because when I passed it over to them, they had finished work for the day & do not work at weekends. If you have not heard from them by say 12 noon on Monday, let me know & I will chase them for you.

TalkTalk do not work weekends. Love that. Just like my internet connection then. Not the greatest customer service in the world, possibly the worst.

Please try reading my original post. It is only the OCEs who provide support via this forum that do not work over the weekend. I did say that there are other ways to contact TalkTalk during this time.

Hi Lou310781,

 

I've asked our network team to look into this. I'll let you know when I receive an update 

 

Do you have a telephone that you can test with, just to check if you have a dial tone?

Sorry I dont have a phone to plug in. My Now TV says wifi but no broadband. My mobile says Broadband service not enabled, contact service provider. I can connect straight to my parents with no problem, as I could to ours, before we moved.
