Low cost broadband ISP TalkTalk is facing the prospect of a “landmark” legal case by one of its former Programme Directors, Rebecca Burke, who is crowd-funding to bring an equal pay claim against them after she was allegedly paid “40% less salary and 50% less bonus” than three other male colleges that were “in my team doing the same job.”

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has banned two email adverts for TalkTalk’s ISP after they “misleadingly” told customers that “your usage is affecting your broadband service” and “you’ve hit your limit 3 times in 30 days” before recommending an upgrade to “fibre“, even though neither user was at such a “limit“.

Former customers of TalkTalk’s broadband service (going as far back as Tiscali) who continue to use their old email accounts may be displeased to learn that the ISP is going to “start charging” them from £5 a month or £50 per year for access (more than a dedicated email host). Plus the ISP will delete accounts that don’t pay.

A new YouGov survey of 4,100 UK people, which was commissioned by UK ISP TalkTalk, has claimed that for 50% of respondents access to “reliable broadband” is more important than their partner and 7 in 10 would even prioritise it over their family pet (this may depend what they mean – in the practical sense – by “prioritise“).

The UK telecoms regulator, Ofcom, has concluded their review of broadband ISP pricing and agreed industry changes that are designed to protect “vulnerable” consumers (e.g. pensioners) from “loyalty penalties,” which references how loyal customers (those who don’t switch or renegotiate) often end up paying more.

Budget UK ISP TalkTalk appears to be having some success in courting interest from investors in their sibling wholesale FibreNation company, which proposes to build a 1000Mbps “full fibre” (FTTP) broadband network to cover 3 million UK premises. The latest to enter the ring are investment firms iCon Infrastructure and Macquarie.

The FibreNation project, which was established by UK ISP TalkTalk and aspires to deploy a 1Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) broadband network to cover 3 million premises, has today confirmed that the West Yorkshire town of Dewsbury (population of 65,000) has been added to their initial rollout plan.

Budget ISP TalkTalk appears to have responded to Vodafone’s recent promotion by discounting the cost of their Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) based “Faster Fibre with Speed Boost” (67Mbps average) broadband and phone bundle to just £23.50 per month. Confusingly this makes it the same price as their slower 38Mbps plan.

One of TalkTalk’s TV adverts has been pulled after the UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) found it to be incorrect, which occurred because the connection speeds referenced in the broadcast’s voice-over did not match the speeds being promoted in the broadband provider’s on-screen text.

A new survey of 1,000 broadband customers, conducted by Which?, has revealed that 40% had been with the same ISP for 10 years and only 15% had been with their provider for less than 2 years (likely to reflect recent switchers). The reasons for this tended to vary between users of BT, Sky Broadband, TalkTalk and Virgin Media.
