Here is a salutary tale from Stephen Bell, a resident in Great Barrow"
"Well well, miracles never cease!
I complained to TalkTalk that I knew (care of the excellent Tarvin Online) that they had connected someone in Tarvin, and the operator I spoke to had simply done the online check that I had done.
24 hours later they phoned me and offered me a superfast deal (only 38mbs here but we are away from the exchange I guess) and a free TalkTalk TV box. Whatever that is.
Engineer booked for the 16th July"
Ed: "Stephen first approached Tarvinonline to put pressure on Connecting Cheshire to advise what he could do to access Superfast Broadband as he was on the Tarvin exchange and knew that it had been upgraded. With a download speed of 1.3Mbps the iPlayer barely worked and his citrix connection failed to work, so he was keen to up-grade"
The message from Tarvinonline is 'Don't take no for an answer when checking with your internet provider, Superfast Broadband is here and we will all be able to connect sometime soon'
