Is TalkTalk broadband and TV anything to speak of?

Looking for a provider that does the works, but keeps things simple? That’s TalkTalk to a tee.

Its broadband and TV bundles are among the most affordable in the UK, and come jam-packed with great features, including Sky Entertainment channels, on demand box sets and more.

What can I get from TalkTalk?

TalkTalk does it all: you can get unlimited broadband in your choice of speed, home phone packages, and even add on TV with the channels you like.

One particularly good thing about TalkTalk is that all prices are fixed for 18 months, so you won’t be hit by any unexpected price increases while your contract is still active.

Here’s what’s available:

TalkTalk broadband

It isn’t too hard to guess what you get with a TalkTalk broadband package. It’s pretty much what it says on the tin. It includes line rental and can be bundled with TV, and you get totally unlimited downloads so you can use it as much as you like.

Every package comes with a TalkTalk router, and HomeSafe network level security, which can be set to block sites known to contain viruses, or prevent younger users from accessing inappropriate content.

You also get TalkTalk SuperSafe internet security for one device as standard, with the option to expand the protection to up to eight devices for an additional charge.

Need an internet connection with a bit more welly, but don't want to spend a bomb on it? Have a look at TalkTalk's fibre optic broadband packages. It's available with average speeds of either 35Mb or 63Mb, and again you get truly unlimited downloads.

And, of course, it comes with line rental, internet security, a WiFi Hub, and the option to add TV too.

TalkTalk TV

If you want TV, broadband and phone services all together, TalkTalk’s a great way to get that at a low price. It’s based around the YouView set top box, which combines Freeview TV with streaming on demand services and catch-up TV. You can choose either standard TV, or upgrade to TV Plus.

One great thing about TalkTalk TV is that it’s flexible. If you want extra channels, Sky Sports or Sky Cinema for example, you can get what TalkTalk calls a ‘TV Boost’. These are available on a rolling monthly basis, so if at any point you decide you don’t want those channels anymore, you can simply cancel them.

Available boosts include TV Select (which gives you extra entertainment channels) and the Kids Boost (which gives you a bunch of kids' TV channels). You can also get Sky Cinema for blockbuster movies, Sky Sports, and BT Sport through TalkTalk TV.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How do I switch broadband provider?

    The process of changing your broadband provider is actually pretty straightforward. First, you put your postcode into our impartial comparison tool. We’ll display the broadband, phone and TV deals available where you live, and then you can use our search filters to narrow down the options and find the perfect package for your household. Finally, you sign up with your new provider online. They’ll contact your existing provider and take care of everything else for you (unless you're switching to or from Virgin Media).

    The actual switch should be virtually seamless, and in the vast majority of cases it is. Your new broadband provider will send you all the stuff you need to get set up, like a new wireless router and/or TV set-top box.

    For more info, see our guide: How to switch broadband

  2. How do I get fibre broadband?

    Exactly the same way you'd get regular broadband. Put your postcode into our comparison tool to see what’s available where you live:

    Fibre optic broadband

    You’ll need an active phone line for the majority of fibre services, such as BT Infinity, as they’re delivered through that.

    The main exception is Virgin Media, which doesn't require a phone line because it uses a separate network. Once you've found a package that ticks all the boxes, click through to the provider’s website and sign up. Then it won’t be long before you’re all set up.

  3. Will I lose my connection if I switch?

    No. You can continue using your current service to the day your new provider activates your connection.

    With some providers, the only downtime you may experience is a couple of hours on the day the switch actually happens. However, you should be able to plan ahead if you provider has an order-tracking system.

  4. Can I keep my email address if I change provider?
    This depends entirely on who your current provider is. If your email address is from BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Virgin Media, or Plusnet, you'll still have access to your emails at least temporarily - but we'd suggest changing over to a free service like Gmail or Outlook so you don't need to worry about losing all your emails just for switching broadband. See our guide for more info.
  5. Can I keep my phone number if I switch provider?

    Yes, you can normally keep your existing number if you switch from one provider to another. However if you're a cable customer or need a new line, you may need to get a new one.

    For everything you need to know, see our guide: Can I keep my phone number?

  6. Why can’t I get fibre optic broadband?
    Superfast fibre optic broadband is slowly making its way across the UK as part of a nationwide roll-out part sponsored by the government. Currently, around 90% of the country has access. You can use our postcode checker to see whether fibre optic broadband’s reached your area yet. That's the most likely reason why it's not available to you, but it could also be due to living in a rural area, in an awkwardly-placed property, or just too far away from a street cabinet.
