ISP TalkTalk Adds 24 Month Terms and Offer 3 Months FREE Broadband

Monday, November 9th, 2020 (12:01 am) - Score 6,648

Budget conscious UK ISP TalkTalk will today reintroduce 24 month contract terms to their home broadband packages, at least for a limited period, and start offering “3 months free” service on all of their most popular “fibre” plans (FTTC, G.fast and FTTP). The one-off postage cost for routers has also been reduced to £4.95.

Until now TalkTalk has tended to offer new customers an 18-month contract term, but until 2nd December 2020 you’ll now be able to get their prices on a longer 24-month term. The package names for their most popular FTTC and G.fast based bundles are also changing today, with Faster Fibre becoming “Fibre 35“, Superfast Fibre turning into “Fibre 65” and Faster 150 Fibre being renamed “Fibre 150.

NOTE: All plans now charge a standard postage fee (£9.95) for router delivery, which until 2nd December 2020 will be half price at £4.95.

The G.fast based Faster 300 Fibre package is also being renamed to “Fibre 250,” while both of their recently launched FTTP (Openreach) based packages – Future Fibre 150 and Future Fibre 500 – will instead become “Fibre 150 (Data Only)” and “Fibre 500 (Data Only)” respectively.

Finally, as part of an early Black Friday deal, new customers taking out TalkTalk’s Fibre 35, 65 or 150 packages will get the first three months of service absolutely free. As usual these come with phone line rental (standard call rates), unlimited usage and their latest Wi-Fi Hub router.

Fast Broadband (Average of 11Mbps down / 1Mbps up)
Price: £22.95 a month for 24 months (standard cost £30)

Fibre 35 (Average of 38Mbps down / 9Mbps up)
Price: £23.50 a month for 24 months (standard cost £29.95)

Fibre 65 (Average of 67Mbps down / 19Mbps up)
Price: £26.00 a month for 24 months (standard cost £34.95)

Fibre 150 (Average of 145Mbps down / 25Mbps up)
Price: £32 a month for 24 months (standard cost £40)

Take note that the above fixed price plans are based on preliminary information and it’s possible that TalkTalk may have tweaked these by the time they go live, so we may update them again during mid-morning. The ISP also applies a 30-day connection guarantee, which allows you to leave penalty free within the first month if you’re unhappy.

    24 month contracts is never a good thing, I think they will become a permeant thing for TalkTalk, I can imagine its only a matter of time before Sky and PlusNet introduce them now. I am with BT at the moment and 24 months certainly feels a long time to be tied in with one provider.

  2. Andrew ilott says:

    And certain isp charge “out of commitmant” rate after so buyer beware

  3. M says:

    Standard DSL prices are a joke. I can’t even get FTTC let alone FTTP and there is a 55p difference between standard and basic FTTC for over double the bandwidth!! (Not that I would ever touch talktalk again)

  4. IHateTalkTalk says:

    So you pay for 24 months, even if your landlord sells up after 6 months, or your house burns down, or something. Fantastic! Then they hound you for an extra £90 for non return of your router, while making it impossible to return the thing. TalkTalk suck.

    1. Mark says:

      Stop spreading your BS – If you move house you can take your ADSL/FTTC/FTTP service with you and your contract resumes from where you left off… This is not Virgin where if you move into a street with no coverage you STILL have to pay off the contract… With the exception of Hull, you can get an Openreach line no matter where you live!

      Oh, and TalkTalk don’t charge you for non-return of equipment … I think you typed “Sky” incorrectly!

    2. AnotherTim says:

      TalkTalk do not provide service in all areas where OpenReach ADSL2+ connections are available – only those exchange areas where they have LLU installed.
      However, they won’t charge the remainder of a contract if you move to such an area.

  5. David Kilpatrick says:

    I have just signed a 18 month contract with Talk Talk for Broadband and talk anytime why was I not offered this new deal.

    1. Mr Kevin Kerr says:

      This new offer is not even released yet, the 18 month contract was available yesterday

  6. adslmax says:

    sod all ISP’s who are long term contract!

  7. Jud Robins says:

    I thinking bout leaving it’s only virgin that looks after you and comes round to install it I been with 4 different providers on faster fibre fast fibre with speed boost upto 76mbps and every provider has bin the same my download speed is inbetween 4 and 7mbps on 1 device and ethernet cable from hub directly to the device and it does nothing well sorry the speed goes a tiny bit and I mean a tiny bit fasterit doesn’t matter what packages I choose my broadband speeds have been the same even when I was on basic package without fibre its the same speeds I kerp telling them all I got is old phone wires in a old black turning grey cause its that old you need fibre cables not very old phone wires and every time I gets put on dsl alot lot slower than fibre my son can’t do most things on pc it lags all the time and most times the pages won’t even load up and when it does come on the screen it comes in bits and that is ethernet cabled aswell I ain’t saying nothing bad bout talk talk but at least they can do is send a engineer round to me to link me up to the fibre I am paying for fibre speeds but only getting basic speeds just on mobile phone it takes ages for pages to load or it just says no connection even ads won’t load fully my house phone I have unplugged cause of the white noise in the back ground but anyway all you gota do is look at dsl speeds compared to fibre speeds if the speed test comes back in the early 20s on 1 device and using ethernet cable on a fibre package with speed boost then ya just on a dsl service line nearly 4 years now paying for fibre when it ain’t especially on 1 bloody device and ethernet cabled you either send a engineer round to sort it out or I am off I got proof I ain’t on fibre speeds

  8. Declan M says:

    Can’t give it away, had Talktalk 38mb for 6 months utter useless

  9. geoff bird says:

    Do t trust talk talk after a few months they will add stealth increases

  10. Yeah says:



  11. Mark says:

    Just renewed to fibre 35,never had a problem with talktalk in 6 years!

  12. Kevin Mac says:

    TalkTalk are having to “give it away” , given their appalling customer service levels, their unrivalled network assurance tools, skills and processes and…. my personal experience of using TT for 5 years. They beat me – I simply could not suffer their service anymore, despite it being the cheapest! And after giving me repeated credits! Good luck to anyone who is suckered by their pricing teasers. DON’T DO IT.

  13. John says:

    I already have a TT contract lasting 2 years from the summer there. No problems with them. 80/20 speeds. Ask them on chat, Customer Sales, or Retention team, see what you can get.

  14. Tracy Lamont says:

    I’m interested but it looks as though they will charge me £60 one off payment on my first bill (so even if I take a three month break, this is utterly nonsensical to have my first bill go from 23.50 per month to £32 per month with a £60 fee slapped on first payment meaning I take a three month break then pay £92 on my first payment (don’t think so!) I’m out
