TalkTalk is a provider that aims to combine speedy, brilliantly reliable broadband with great-value pricing. Customers can add TalkTalk TV for a great variety of entertainment, including Sky Cinema and Sky Sports via the NOW TV passes, and a UK or International call package.
TalkTalk has remained a popular choice for UK customers as fibre broadband has been rolled out across the UK. This provider has always looked to compete in terms of pricing and reliability, and has stayed competitive despite the emergence of a range of low-cost alternatives.
TalkTalk has four fibre packages all of which come with unlimited usage and a free router for secure home wifi. Their entry-level package offers an average download speed of 35Mbps which is ideal for those lighter internet users.
Busier households with multiple devices will want to opt for one of TalkTalk’s faster packages, either Fibre 65, Fibre 150 or Fibre 250. Their Ultra Fibre Optic package boasts an average download speed of over 900Mbps. That’s enough for even the most demanding of customers and is easily capable of handling anything you throw at it.
Each of TalkTalk’s fibre broadband packages also comes with a number of useful extras. This includes SuperSafe security so you can keep the whole family protected against harmful threats online and the great connection guarantee which gives you 30 days to try out the service with no penalty for leaving.
TalkTalk TV gives you access to over 80 Freeview channels, with 15 of these in stunning HD, through either the TV or TV Plus box. Both allow you to pause and rewind live channels but the only latter allows you to record content to stream later.
You can enjoy 1000s of hours of content via on demand players like BBC iPlayer, All4 and Demand5 as well as rent or buy the latest film releases through the TalkTalk store. Netflix and Amazon Prime are also available giving you access to a vast library of acclaimed films and TV series.
TalkTalk customers can add any of the five NOW TV passes to their package to unlock even more brilliant content from the worlds of sport, reality TV, Sky Cinema and entertainment. The latter includes the exclusive Sky Atlantic which brings you a selection of new, addictive series from the US.
How fast your TalkTalk package is will depend on which one you go for. Fibre 35 offers an average download speed of 38Mbps while you can achieve almost 300Mbps with Fibre 250.
Unlimited broadband means that there is no data cap on a broadband package. This allows you to download or stream whatever you want, whenever you want without having to worry about incurring any charges.
TalkTalk TV allows you to watch over 80 Freeview channels (alongside 15 in HD) and catch up with the latest entertainment. You can also access Netflix, Amazon Prime and add any of the NOW TV passes for even more exciting content.
