About TalkTalk

When it comes to offering cheap broadband and phone deals with great value for money, TalkTalk has been a trendsetter among its rivals and its free broadband package was first of its kind to be launched in the UK a few years ago.

A major landline provider in the UK, TalkTalk offers its homephone bundled with standard broadband or fibre broadband.Talk Talk added its own superfast fibre broadband and TV services only by the middle of 2012. However, the good response from its customers enabled the provider increase TalkTalk TV Plus (YouView) subscriptions three times in the fourth quarter of 2012. TalkTalk is now a leading triple-play service provider in a market that was earlier dominated by BT, Virgin Media and Sky.

TalkTalk fibre broadband is delivered via BT’s FTTC network and has a coverage of more than 13 million homes in the UK. Both its Fibre Medium (up to 38Mbps) and Fibre Large (up to 76Mbps) can be added on top of its Essential or Plus packages. The add-ons and boosts are available to the customers who want to upgrade to faster internet plans or add unlimited calls/international calls.

New wireless router, YouView TV and HomeSafe internet security are great features that TalkTalk introduced in 2012.

Ratings for its customer service also improved significantly in 2012-2103 after the corrective measures the telecom firm has taken on the wake of incorrect billing issue in 2011.

  • Superfast fibre broadband is available to new and upgrading customers.
  • TalkTalk TV Plus offers access to movies, TV channels and popular, on-demand channels & films via YouView platform.
  • Flexible ‘boosts’  allow users to add specific call plans or popular channels like Sky Sports on a minimum 1 month contract.
  • Includes Homesafe parental controls and internet security

Coverage and Cost

Talk Talk offers low-cost broadband and phone deals from its unbundled exchanges from BT. Its network which has a chain of more than 2,700 exchanges by the end of 2012, covers 94% of the UK population.

Fibre broadband is currently available for 13 million households.

All TalkTalk packages come all in pricing, meaning, the monthly price includes line rental to help you identify the actual cost of the service without any difficulty.

Early termination charges
Customers who terminate their service before the expiry of contract, will need to pay for the months left on the contract. Thus, the cancellation charges for different TalkTalk customers will be calculated as follows:

  • Fast Broadband: monthly price multiplied by number of months left on the contract
  • TV bundles : monthly price x number of months left on the contract
  • Faster Fibre broadband:  Charges can be calculated in a similar way.

TalkTalk broadband reviews

TalkTalk deals are indeed suitable for families that are looking our for the best and cheapest broadband and phone offers. The ‘boosts’ just help users to add call plans and TV channels flexibly, without committing for a long time. Line rental saver is another great option to cut the cost.TalkTalk gained good ratings for best value for money, reliable service and best security features in 2012. The poor customer service which was the mark of TalkTalk between 2009 and 2011 due to billing and other issues, has improved significantly in 2012 after the measures taken by the ISP.
