Am I expecting too much? Empty Am I expecting too much?

I'm not a fan of gratuitously naming companies, my preference is to deal with issues privately, so this is not about Talktalk  Whistle1

I got a nice letter last year from my broadband provider, telling me that the contract for my internet service via the old phone line had expired. Well, I had known it was unwell for several years so it was no surprise it had expired  biggrin  The nice people (that are definitely not Talktalk) followed that up with an email offering me options which included a free upgrade to full fibre via the recently installed cables in our street. This included a new router and a reduction of over a third in the monthly charges, "you don't have to do anything, we'll organise it". Great, where do I sign up. After several months of hearing nothing I phoned the number on the email and got the predictable call centre runaround. Nevertheless, it was organised and the installation went smoothly. 

That was until I got my first two monthly bills, I was being charged for the new service and for the discontinued old one as well  confused0 Back onto the company (that's not Talktalk) to get an explanation and refund. I did this via their Web chat function and, although it took a bit of time, the excess paid will be credited to my account. It was the next bit that surprised me, I was told that it was my responsibility to call their "loyalty team" to cancel my old service.

I did what they asked but is it too much to expect that, when switching broadband contracts with the same company, they would recognise one service replaces another? I'm not confident this has episode has quite concluded yet rolleyes .

Hi Mr 'T',

No you are not expecting too much, but, the days of 'joined up thinking' come and go in my experience.

The letters TB involved perhaps? or on a re-read perhaps its not Talktalk. Am I expecting too much? 1f609

I'm also confident that the episode has not quite concluded yet and I await further instalments!


Cheers

Just wait until next month, when Hush Hush realise you haven't paid the last two months for your old broadband and send you bill for three months  pc

It looks ominous already, just had an email from not Talktalk saying they are sorry I'm leaving and offering a new deal to stay on  scratch head

Followed by a phone call asking why I was leaving  think_smiley_46

My fears were not unfounded.

Not Talktalk have charged me again this month for a service discontinued 3 months ago despite my repeated contact with them. I must acknowledge that the staff (or agents as they seem to be called) have been excellent to deal with but there is clearly an organisational system failure. I've got the money back but only by asking for it, let's see what next month bring Whistle1 (no fingers crossed emoji snigger )
