TalkTalk has some solid broadband deals available right now, especially for those looking to save a few quid. The latest batch of offers from the internet firm will be around until early September, so those whose contract isn’t quite up for renewal will still be able to take advantage of the latest deals.
TalkTalk is comparing its prices directly with BT, telling customers how much they could save by switching between the two companies. Since both are powered by Openreach cables – if you’re able to get a BT broadband connection at home, you’ll be able to sign-up with TalkTalk too. Not only that, but switching between the two companies is made easier by this shared infrastructure too. Under Ofcom rules, you don’t even need to bother ringing BT to tell them you’re leaving – the new company will handle all the hassle and end your current service so there’s no loss of internet before the new contract starts.
If you’re looking to make the biggest saving compared to what you’ll get from BT, look no further than TalkTalk’s Fibre 65 plan.
With average download speeds of 67Mbps, that should be more than enough to stream shows and movies from Netflix in the highest quality available (4K streaming requires a minimum of 25Mbps, Netflix claims). TalkTalk doesn’t impose any download limits, so you can spend all day and all night streaming without seeing any extra charges. There’s also a free Wi-Fi Hub thrown-in for free as well as 24/7 online support. According to TalkTalk, compared to similar speed plans from BT, you’ll save £112.86.
If that’s still a little pricey for you, TalkTalk’s Fibre 35 is available for just £23 a month. For that, you’ll get unlimited downloads with an average speed of 38Mbps. You’ll get the same Wi-Fi Hub available with the speedier Fibre 65 plan, as well as 24/7 online support. However, it’s worth noting that 35Mbps might not be enough for busy household with multiple working from home, downloading updates to gadgets, streaming music and movies, and more.
Both the Fibre 35 and Fibre 65 broadband plans can be upgraded to a ‘Fibre Plus’ plan. These plans cost a little more. However, TalkTalk bundles in a few extras.
Fibre Plus broadband bundles bring everything that comes as standard with the standard plan, plus “SuperSafe” online security powered by F-Secure (worth £72) and an Amazon Tech Pack, which includes the latest version of the Amazon Echo Dot smart speaker and an Amazon Smart Plug. These would usually cost £74.98 when bought standalone.
For those who don’t know, the Amazon Echo Dot is a small smart speaker powered by AI assistant Alexa. With the Smart Plug, you can switch on or off any mains-powered device with a simple voice command to Alexa. Elsewhere, the chatty AI can also be used to play your favourite songs from Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music and more. Podcasts and audiobooks are also supported. Ask Alexa can also set alarms and timers, share the latest headlines, or tell you a joke.
All TalkTalk broadband plans are 18-months.
