Tick-tock, TalkTalk: Users face fourth day of titsup broadband

'Network error'? You're 'avin a bubble bath, mate

Remote control for virtualized desktops

TalkTalk customers are piling up complaints on the company's social network pages and forums after days of paralysed connections in the south east of England.

A number of Reg readers got in touch to gripe about the telco's broadband service slowing down to a crawl on Friday night. Sadly, the problem remained in place all weekend and continues today. The budget ISP told us:

Some of our customers may have experienced slow speeds over the weekend, because of a network error affecting parts of London and the South East.

Engineers are working to fix the problem and expect a full service to resume this afternoon. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.

The four-days-and-counting disruption has led to TalkTalk firefighting complaints on Twitter and elsewhere as the grievances continue to stack up. Many customers were simply told to fill in a form explaining their individual woes.

Northern Ireland customers were also said to have been affected by the fault, which led to web pages loading very slowly. ®
