After nearly 3 years on AOL Broadband, I've decided to take the plung
and change. AOL haven't been too bad of late, but they've caused lot
of problems in the past so now is as good a time as any to change.
I chose TalkTalk mainly because of the price - £14.99 for 1Mb -, bu
also because I have their landline service which has worked reall
Looks like their Broadband service is going to be a different story...
On Monday [14/03] AOL gave me a 19-character MAC number, which I trie
to enter on TalkTalk's registration website. 'Tried' - because the sit
would only accept the first 16-characters. I called them and explained
and gave them the full code.
By Thursday I'd heard nothing, and the status on their website hadn'
changed so I called them. Apparently, there was a discrepancy on th
address I'd given them and the one BT had. The 'discrepancy' was tha
I'd entered the county in which I live on TalkTalk's registration site
but BT's record didn't use it. Other than that the address wa

I am with talktalk and had the same problem migrating from PIPEX i.e. Mac
number too long. I enrolled at a local shop.

let me know when all was well.
I was connected within the 30 days.
