ISP TalkTalk Spends GBP200k to Upgrade Broadband in West Norfolk UK

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012 (3:52 am) - Score 729

Budget internet and phone operator TalkTalk (AOL) has reportedly spent £200,000 on an upgrade of their unbundled broadband (LLU) services at several telephone exchanges in West Norfolk, which includes Middleton, Terrington St Clement, Hunstanton and Heacham.


The ISP somewhat boldly claims that customers who have recently been upgraded to the new network are now experiencing an average rise in broadband speeds of 50%, which is a difficult claim to asses without more detail (base of comparison?). Most of the above listed exchanges (excluding Hunstanton) can already receive at least ADSL2+ (up to 24Mbps) technology through BT’s 21CN platform.

Overall the ISP told Lynn News that they had spent £600m on their national UK telecoms network. At the last count in May 2012 TalkTalk informed ISPreview.co.uk that its fully unbundled MPF (LLU) network coverage had now reached 2,508 telephone exchanges, covering 91% of the country. This is expected to reach 93% by the end of 2012.

    When will the NR23 postcode area get a better option than BT’s ADSL Max? Our exchange was due to be upgraded to BT’s 21CN WBC back in Sept 2009(?) but was pulled.

      I can’t answer your question – perhaps someone else can – however our local exchange was also due to be upgraded in 2009 and the date was quietly dropped.

      A new date has appeared now – end September 2012.

      Sadly, it won’t make any great difference since the lines in our area are of highly variable quality and all are over 2.5km in length; HSPA remains the fastest broadband option.

      Those living right next to the exchange in the village in which it is located should see some small speed boosts however.
