TalkTalk: Cutting contracts to 12 months

Cheap broadband with a shorter contract? TalkTalk broadband has slashed the length of its bundle contracts from 18 to 12 months.

New customers signing up to one of TalkTalk's broadband and home phone bundles will now only have to commit to a 12-month contract.

A spokesperson from the provider said: "Our customers have asked us for the flexibility that 12-month contracts present and we have responded."

TalkTalk offers two packages, both with speeds of up to24Mb broadband. Its Essentials deal comes with a generous 40GB monthly download allowance and inclusive evening and weekend landline calls for just £6.99 a month.

The high-end Plus package offers "unlimited broadband" downloads with anytime calls for £14.99 a month.

The provider is also set to launch a new Fibre Optic Boost that will allow customers to switch to a superfast network offering speeds of up to40Mb broadband.

Michael Phillips, Broadbandchoices.co.uk product director, said: "While it's great that TalkTalk is offering new, shorter contracts, customers can find a selection of truly flexible,one-month contracts by comparing broadband package online."
