UK ISP TalkTalk Offers 80Mbps Fibre Broadband Boost Upgrade for £15

Monday, March 12th, 2012 (4:01 pm) - Score 1,749

Internet and phone provider TalkTalk UK has become the first consumer ISP to announce the launch of its optional ‘up to’ 80Mbps Fibre Broadband Boost (20Mbps uploads) upgrade, which uses BT’s FTTC technology and is available for +£15 extra per month to the providers existing broadband subscribers (i.e. ‘Essentials’ and ‘Plus’ package customers).

The original ‘up to’ 40Mbps (2Mbps uploads) Boost is also still available at the original price of +£10 extra per month. There is also a one-off £25 activation fee, which covers the engineer installation and included VDSL Modem. At present the service is also only available to around 30-40% of the country.

Tristia Clarke, Commercial Director at TalkTalk, said:

Demand is continuing to increase for superfast broadband as more customers use their internet connections to watch live television, stream HD content, talk to their friends and family or play games that require real time responses.

We expect our new Superfast Fibre Optic Broadband to be very popular as it will allow the whole family to enjoy seamless connectivity and high upload and download speeds for unbeatable value.”

TalkTalk’s announcement follows just an hour after BTOpenreach announced the “early” April 2012 launch of its 80Mbps FTTC upgrade (here) and gives us some insight into how other ISPs might price the service (i.e. expect a premium of around +£5 upon existing 40Mbps packages).

    £5 more than the 40/10mb tier, pretty good really 🙂 Wonder when Sky will be doing 80mb as their trial is only 40mb at the moment, hopefully their 80mb tier will be truly unlimited too.
