Huawei from ebay and TalkTalk BB


Standard Member

I'm thinking of switching from Sky to youview, I'm currently a talktalk customer, but I've got a really good deal from them already on my broadband so don't really want to switch to their £15.50 a month tariff (I'm paying 1.25 for unlimited broadband and enough calls for me).

The question is can I just buy a Huawei box from ebay plug it in and it'll just work as a fully functioning TalkTalk box, or will I miss out on the option to add boosters etc?

Any help or advice would be gratefully received.

So I understand. I haven't taken the plunge yet, but from what I can gather the only bits that won't work are the premium services (ie the bundles and pay per view), not sure about NowTV but as that's aYouView service rather than a TalkTalk specific one I'd imagine it'll work. Either way I'm going to ring sky today try and haggle a massive discount otherwise I shall be buying a box from eBay.
