TalkTalk Offer 12 Months FREE Unlimited Broadband or FTTC for GBP5

Budget ISP TalkTalk have made their entry-level unlimited SimplyBroadband package free for the first 12 months of service (normally £3.50 a month), which can also be taken alongside the half-price Superpowered Fibre (FTTC) upgrade (£5 a month instead of £10). On top of that new customers get a £75 Love2shop Voucher (usable in lots of stores).

The new promotion, which looks like it will only be available for the next nine days or so, requires that customers take out a 12 month contract and TalkTalk’s own Phone Line Rental service from £14.35 a month when pre-paid for a year in advance (£15.95 if you’d prefer the pay the standard monthly charge).

Customers who then want to optionally benefit from Superpowered Fibre (FTTC) speeds of ‘up to’ 38Mbps (Megabits per second) can also add this service as a half-price upgrade for an extra £5 per month (first 12 months of service), which means that you’d pay £5 overall for the broadband side and from £14.35 for the line rental. But take note that the fibre add-on attracts an 18 month contract.

SimplyBroadband Package Summary
* Download speeds of up to 17Mbps
* Totally Unlimited Usage
* Standard Call Charges (PAYG)
* Included Calls Between TalkTalk Customers
* Included Wireless Router
* Included HomeSafe Security and Parental Controls

PRICE: £0 for the first 12 months of service (£3.50 a month thereafter) + from £14.35 line rental

As usual customers can add AnyTime UK Landline Calls for an extra £5 per month, not to mention their various other mobile and TV (IPTV) package add-ons (boosts) at extra cost. NOTE: This deal is not currently visible on TalkTalk’s vanilla website, although it should show up if you follow the ISPs link through from this article.

    £80 quidco for new customers and a new phone line fitted, £90 quidco if you have a bt phone line already installed.

    How can FTTC be overpriced by BT OR if TalkTalk can afford this kind of deal?

    Well they have their own equipment in the exchanges but speeds will not be as good as they could be. Remember the whole setup is shared so the more you put on the network the slower it will go and you are tied into a 12 month contract. I would say when any company starts to offer packages that are impossible to be true there is always a sting in the tail. Free if you stay the 12 months but try leaving early you might find the sting.

    Remember while they are offering these incentives plus connection for free where is the money coming from for upgrades to keep up with latest technology.

      there is no LLU on WBC-FTTC yet as far as i understand.

      I guess I and quite a few others are very lucky to get very decent service out of TalkTalk. I have their 80/20 service and I’m almost always able to achieve around those speeds. It’s been perfectly stable too: far more so than anything else I’ve ever had and that’s a lot (but not limited to): AAISP, Eclipse, UKOnline, Sky, BE, Virgin (cable).

      I fully understand that this may not be the case in all areas however the same can be said for most ISPs.

    The first priority for Talk Talk are its share holders not new technology to its customers. Its the pound shop principle.

    @ DanielM

    FTTC runs along the same priciple as adsl2+ same nodes the fttc is the fibre from exchange to cabinet. Once at the exchange the FTTC can be connected to talktalks equipment.

    reason TT can give it for £5 pm because the fttc is rubbish

    its free because talktalk is abysmal and need to shut down like BT hopefully it will happen and get rid of the **** services
