UK ISP TalkTalk Cuts FTTC Superfast Broadband Prices

talktalk uk fibre broadband

Internet provider TalkTalk has today reduced the price of their ‘up to’ 38Mbps and ‘up to’ 76Mbps FTTC based “Fibre Broadband” packages for new subscribers on an 18 month contract and they’ve also removed the £50 one-off setup fee. The offers are expected to be available until 16th March 2017.

As usual customers can expect to receive unlimited usage, included line rental, a free Mobile SIM (500MB data, 200 mins, unlimited texts), wireless “Super Router” and various other features (e.g. Parental Controls). The ISP also claims to have “guaranteed” that the price of their fixed price plans “will not change for your whole contract,” although this might not apply to call charges and optional add-ons.

Faster Fibre (up to 38Mbps / 2Mbps upload)
Price: £27.00 per month for 18 months (£32 thereafter)

Faster Fibre (up to 76Mbps / 19Mbps upload)
Price: £32.00 per month for 18 months (£37 thereafter)

The ISP also offers optional 12 and 24 month contract terms, albeit at a higher monthly price.

  1. Signed up with their 76mb fibre half a month ago.

    Good service but was paying £33/mo for 24 months. Because of this offer, I hit up live chat and renegotiated to 12 months for £32/mo.

    Cheers for sharing 🙂

    Can anyone give me an idea of their current level of service/reliability with fibre products? (generally speaking). I was looking at Plusnet but some users still seem to be plagued by packet loss, high ping rates and buffering/pausing of streaming services, (reading their community forums). Finding it difficult to make my mind up who to go with.

  3. I’m a 5 month customer now, fibre for a few months. Recently the top speed. The router (HG633) isn’t fantastic, but I use a lot of ethernet so don’t really see it. So you could bring a decent one along with you. Very stable, speeds as promised, no packet loss. I haven’t seen slow down at peak either (maybe a 0.5mb variation).

    That said the usual complaints seem to be from people on ridiculously slow connections (sub 5mb).

      Thanks for the feeback Graeme. One thing that has put me off TalkTalk is their over cautious (impacted line) speed estimate, which in my case is 10-25meg. BT wholesale checker, which most other ISP’s seem to use, says 22-32 on a clean line. My concern would be being stuck with a low speed (like 10meg) and having no recourse because it ‘falls into estimate’. Would be a great excuse for them to do nothing about it.

      Joe does your exchange have the 18/2 on it? Check on the checker

      The only real issue with TT residential is that if you want UK customer service you have to go through the forums – and they take days to reply to a post(or did last year).

    @Rog, according to the checker it does.
