company Calling Features

are much the same as BT’s. In fact, your line rental already

you are live on 0870 444 1820† to register, if you haven’t already.
You can choose to carry across things like Call Waiting, Call Divert
and 1471 (they’ll ‘go live’ when your service does). Simply call
0870 444 1820† once you ‘go live’, or visit mytalktalk.co.uk

Your broadband connection
– super-fast and always-on
TalkTalk broadband doesn’t just save you money, it’s also brilliant. Look at all the incredible
things it includes:
Get up to speed
• It’s always-on, allowing you to use your phone and the internet at the same time.
• The speed is up to a dizzying 8 Meg,4 (speed depends on proximity to exchange)
almost 150 times faster than dial-up (a bit like swapping your mountain bike for
a formula one racing car). For more powerful online gaming, sending and
receiving large documents quickly, and listening to online radio.
• You get a massive 40GB5 monthly usage allowance for downloads, more than enough
for 8000 tunes or 132 one-hour TV episodes6 each month – with loads left over for all
the blogging, surfing and googling you do each day.
06 mytalktalk.co.uk

• It comes with 15MB of web space, so you can even build your own website.
• We give you 5 email addresses – enough for all the family.
• Check and manage your bill online – quickly, easily, and free of charge.

high-speed downloads. If you haven’t already chosen our TalkTalk modem, simply call
us on 0870 444 1820† and add it to your TalkTalk order.
And best of all, you get all this for just £15 a month3.
*Please note that TalkTalk Online Security is currently only for PC users. Please contact your Mac computer provider about the
security that would suit your needs.
Your bills will be cheaper, and you can
take care of everything online
With TalkTalk you get the complete offer
– a single point of contact for phone
and broadband. Your monthly bills are
itemised to show your line rental, call
plan subscription, Calling Circle, Calling
Features and any chargeable calls1.
Your broadband bill
If you purchase our recommended TalkTalk modem
with either of our Talk3 or Talk3 International call
plans, you’ll notice a £29.99 charge on your bill,
which is payment for the modem.
Calls and line rental bill
Online billing is easy, convenient – and saves
you money
Calls are billed per minute, we’ve
worked hard to make our rates simpler
and clearer, making it easier for you to
compare them against BT. The billing
period starts on your ‘go live’ date. Call
charges, including the price of your call
plan with line rental, will be deducted
from your account by Direct Debit 14
days after the date of billing.
It only takes a moment to register for online billing
at mytalktalk.co.uk. Just click on the ‘My Account’
tab at the top of the page with your username and
password to hand. It’s quick, easy and saves you
money. You can also check how many Nectar points
you have collected with TalkTalk (you can also do
this at nectar.com). If you prefer a paper bill, after
3 months, we’ll charge £1 per month to print and
send a paper bill.

Other phone companies don’t like it when
you get together with TalkTalk
Don’t worry, we’ll break it to your current phone company that you’re leaving. As you’d expect,
they won’t be too happy about it. So if they happen to call questioning our low prices, here are
a few answers we’ve prepared for you.
Big Telephone company:
Our reply:
‘The unlimited number of inclusive
calls are just a gimmick’.
“That’s not true. Your unlimited number of calls to local and national1 UK
landline numbers will be included, for as long as you remain a Talk3 or Talk3
International customer. And that’s a promise.”
‘You can’t make comparisons between
our services and BT together options’.
“Yes you can. We’ve worked hard to provide services that reflect BT’s comparitive
call plans. You can compare them easily and you’ll find that we’re cheaper.”
‘How can they offer broadband
for only £15 a month?’
“Because you buy your calls from us, in return we will give you broadband
for only £15 a month3 – simple as that.”
mytalktalk.co.uk 09
It won’t be long until you’re
on super-fast broadband
We know. You can’t wait another second for your high-speed connection. However, without boring
you with all the technical details, it’s not quite as easy as flicking a big switch (we wish).
Your calls and line rental will be transferred to us after approximately 10 working days, and your
broadband will be live as soon as possible after that.
To find out when your broadband will ‘go live’, there’s no need to call us.
Just go to mytalktalk.co.uk/goinglive and enter the order number we’ve given you.
Is your computer ready for broadband?
TalkTalk broadband will work on either a PC or Mac. The minimum you will need for a PC is
a Pentium 200Mhz processor with 128Mb memory and Windows 2000 or XP; For Macs, you
need a PowerPC with at least OS 9.0 and 128Mb memory. Have a check to make sure you’re
good to go.

Some frequently asked questions
about our service
Q. What happens next?
A. As soon as your order is processed,
we’ll send you an order confirmation letter
then a welcome pack, which will tell you
everything you need to know - including
your ‘go live’ dates.
Calls and line rental.
Your calls and line rental will ‘go live’ first within
approximately 10 working days – so you can
start enjoying an unlimited number of calls.
Broadband.
On or around your connection date you’ll
receive a broadband pack containing
everything you need to get online.
General
Q.Is there a disconnection charge?
A. Once your broadband has gone live, if you’re
not happy, you can cancel the service within 30
days and you won’t incur a disconnection fee.
We’re confident that you’ll love our broadband
but if you decide to cancel you will need to call
our cancellations team on 0870 444 1820†.
14 mytalktalk.co.uk
Please note charges for your call plan,
line rental and modem supplied prior to
disconnection will still apply.
For full terms and conditions that apply to the
30 day trial, and our calls, line rental and
broadband service, please visit mytalktalk.co.uk.
Q.I pay my BT line rental quarterly in
advance. Does that mean I’m entitled to
a refund? Or will I be charged for ending
my contract?
A. Possibly. It’s worth checking when you
last paid your line rental, as you may be owed
a refund. BT will bill you for any outstanding
charges. You might incur a cancellation
charge on your account if you’re disconnecting
within a contract period. You should check with
your current provider to see if any penalties
might apply.
Q.How can I pay my bill?
A. To make it easy for you to pay your bill,
we’ll take a monthly payment from you using
the Direct Debit details that you gave to us
at the time of signing up. If your Direct Debit
payment fails, there will be a surcharge
if you pay by cash or cheque.
Q. Will my BT Calling Features
move over?
A. TalkTalk has most of the Calling Features
you’re used to – like call waiting or voicemail.
However, they won’t carry over automatically.
If you have not already chosen yours, you can
use the ‘pick and tick’ sheet in your welcome
pack (that we will send you in the post) to let
us know what you would like your Calling
Features to be or call us on 0870 087 6627†.
You can even bundle them up and take
advantage of our cheaper Calling Feature
package prices.
Q. What happens with BT when
I switch over?
A. We do everything for you. All you need
to do is sit back and look forward to cheaper
phone bills and super-fast4 broadband (speed
depends on proximity to exchange).
Q.Are 0845 and 0870 calls excluded
from my package?
For more information visit
mytalktalk.co.uk/landlinefaq
A. You can include one 0845 number in your
Calling Circle and get a 33% discount on our
standard rates for those calls. All other 0845,
0840 and 0870 numbers are excluded.
Your broadband
Q.Will it be difficult to switch over
my calls and broadband service?
A. All you need is a phone line that’s not
provided by a cable company (e.g. NTL
or Telewest). A computer that meets the
minimum requirements (for full details go
to mytalktalk.co.uk). And the ability to pay
us by Direct Debit.
A. Not at all – you keep the same number
(except if you are a cable customer), and
the same line. We will keep you up to date
with things we need (like your MAC code)
and will give you everything you need to
get connected with TalkTalk Connect & Go
Installation CD.
Q.What happens if something goes
wrong with my line?
A. Just call us on 0870 444 1820† and
we will get it fixed for you.
Q.What if I move, or change
my number?
A. We will arrange things – just let us know
on 0870 444 1820†
Q. Can I earn Nectar points with
TalkTalk?
A. Yes. You can earn 2 Nectar points per £1
on your TalkTalk bill7. Just call 0800 049
2999 or go to nectar.com to register your
Nectar card with TalkTalk.
Q.What do I need to get connected
to broadband?
Q.Why should I take a recommended
TalkTalk modem kit?
A. At TalkTalk we pride ourselves on
delivering you a reliable and professional
customer experience.
However, should you decide to use your own
modem and then encounter a problem, we
cannot guarantee our usual high level of
support. There are several reasons for this:
Our customer service agents can only offer
support for our recommended TalkTalk
modems. If you are using a different modem,
you will have to rely solely on the support
facilities of your modem manufacturer.
If you are not using a recommended TalkTalk
modem, our customer service agents will not
be able to perform remote diagnostic checks
on your modem, meaning they will not be
able to get to the root of your problem.
Q.Can I choose to take the
recommended TalkTalk modem after I
have registered?
A. Yes, just call us on 0870 444 1820† and
one of our customer service agents will
arrange for one to be sent to you.
Q.I am on home highway. Can I get
TalkTalk broadband?
A. You can, but you’ll have to give up Home
Highway. You can’t have both services on
the same line. The same goes for ISDN.
Q. Why do I need a MAC code?
A. If you are already with a broadband
provider (e.g. Virgin or Orange) you will
have to supply us with a Migration
Authorisation Code (MAC), so we can
transfer you easily. We will let you know
when we need it and how to get it.
Q.What does ‘up to 8 Meg’
actually mean?
Q.Is my computer powerful enough
to cope with up to 8 Meg 4 broadband?
Q.What will happen if I exceed the 40GB5
monthly usage allowance?
A. 8 Meg4 is the download speed. However,
the speed actually depends on a number of
factors including:
•The length of your phone line – generally
the nearer you are to the exchange,
the faster your connection.
•The quality of your phone line –
if it is in good condition you will get
a stronger signal.
• The quality of the wiring in your home.
•The time of day – the internet has busy
periods, just like the rush-hour, so there
might be a slight reduction in speed, but
you’ll still have a fast, reliable, constant
connection. When you join TalkTalk, at the
time of connection we’ll give you the fastest
speed we can.
A. Most of today’s home computers should
connect to broadband easily. Some older
models (over six years old) may have less
memory and less processing power than
required. We’ve listed the minimum
requirements in your Installation CD
(that you will receive before your broadband
is connected). It’s worth checking the
information booklet that came with your
computer to make sure you have the right
spec. For full details on requirements go
to mytalktalk.co.uk
A. Our 40GB5 monthly usage allowance is
massive, so it should easily be all you need.
But if you keep going over the limit we’ll try
to find ways to help you reduce your usage.
If you continue to exceed your allowance,
we may restrict your access and, if all else
fails we may disconnect you. But don’t worry
this really is the last resort and we’ll do
everything we can to stop this happening.
Q.Does your broadband service work
on Apple Macs?
A. Yes. TalkTalk broadband works fine on both
PC’s and Apple Macs. To run your broadband
you will need a computer that supports OS 9
or higher (or OSX), a Pentium 200 MHZ
processor and at least 128 MB memory.
16 mytalktalk.co.uk
Q.What is a ‘fair use policy’?
A. A very small number of customers use
file-sharing software or other applications,
which constantly send and receive video
and other very large files. This type of activity
uses a huge amount of bandwidth and can
significantly reduce the speed at which our
other customers can access the internet.
Our fair use policy restricts this activity in
peak hours to allow the majority of customers
to use their broadband connection for normal
residential usage i.e. surfing, email, online
gaming etc. This allows us to give you a high
quality service.
Visit mytalktalk.co.uk/broadbandfaq for more
information.

Credit Check and Assessment

by licensed credit reference agencies. If we regard the results of this
assessment as unsatisfactory, we will not be able to connect you.
Please ask us if you’d like to know the names of the credit reference
agencies concerned. All of them are entirely independent of us, so we
are not responsible for the accuracy of the information supplied. Each of
them will make a note of the search on the file they hold on you.
We may also make credit information we hold on our databases,
including details of how you have performed in meeting your obligations,
available to others who are carrying out credit assessments and for
occasional debit tracing and anti-fraud purposes.
