About TalkTalk fibre broadband

Want a superfast package that won’t break the bank? TalkTalk (www.talktalk.co.uk) may be the provider for you. It’s one of the cheapest in the UK, and committed to offering affordable and simple packages.

As well as phone, TV, and standard internet, they now have superfast fibre broadband - and it comes with blistering speeds some good features, like unlimited downloads.

What can I get from TalkTalk fibre?

If it’s speedy fibre broadband you’re looking for, TalkTalk has two kinds to offer you.

  • Faster Fibre - speeds of up to 38Mb (estimated 39-40Mb download and 2Mb upload speeds)
  • Faster Fibre up to 76Mb - speeds of up to 76Mb (estimated 62-80Mb download and 12-20Mb upload speeds)

Both include unlimited downloads, so you can surf, play, and download as much as you want without worrying about usage caps.

HomeSafe network security is included as standard too, so you can block sites known to contain viruses or adult sites you don’t want the kids to see. As it’s network-level, it applies to all devices that connect to your line, from laptops to tablets to phones.

Since the broadband connection relies on a TalkTalk phone line, you’ll get that too, with free calls to other TalkTalk customers and the option to upgrade. You’ll also get the provider’s Talk2Go mobile app, which lets you make calls from your smartphone charged to your landline account.

You can even get your internet and phone as part of a bundle with TV and mobile as well - or if you already have a TalkTalk package, you can upgrade it to include fibre whenever you want. TalkTalk TV uses YouView, with on-demand shows delivered over the web, and fibre optic broadband’s perfect for this - faster speeds give you a smoother, more consistent experience.

TalkTalk broadband and phone can both have ‘boosts’ added on as well, such as the International Calls Boost, or the Super Safe Boost, which gives you antivirus software for an even more secure internet connection.

How does it compare?

TalkTalk fibre has similar speeds to the likes of BT Infinity, usually at a much more affordable price - although it favours simplicity, so you’ll find a wider range of options from BT when it comes to broadband deals. Their TV packages aren’t too different, however, especially as both use YouView, but with TalkTalk you’ll have more flexibility in the form of Boosts.

It’s a similar deal with Sky fibre as well - TalkTalk is cheaper but with fewer options and a lot less TV. There’s more in the way of extras from Sky too, like free access to public Wi-Fi hotspots.

Virgin Media fibre is less widely available, since it runs on its own cable network, but has higher download speeds on offer - up to 200Mb, in fact. You’ll also get better tech in your router. And again, TV bundles are more comprehensive from Virgin Media.

Broadband from Plusnet is fairly similar to TalkTalk’s in terms of price, download speeds, and the simplicity of its packages. The key difference comes in its bundling options: TalkTalk offers more in the way of TV, and it has mobile deals under its belt as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Do I need fibre optic broadband?

    Fibre optic broadband is much faster and much more reliable than broadband through the phone line, but it’s not essential for everyone. If you just want to browse the web, check email, Facebook, Twitter etc, you’ll be fine with standard broadband through the phone line.

    However, if you stream a lot of video, download music, films and games, and other such activities, you will likely find a fibre connection hugely beneficial.

    It’s also a boon for large households, especially ones with lots of gadgets like smartphones, tablets, and computers connected up most of the time. The more people using a connection, the slower it will be, so if you have a big family where lots of people want to connect to the web at the same time, for example, a fibre connection will ensure everyone can get a good experience.

  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. 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. 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.

  4. 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 80% 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.
  5. How long does it take to switch to fibre?
    It varies between providers, but usually within a couple of weeks from when you place the order. It can be much quicker, or it can be slightly longer, depending on whether you need an engineer to visit you. Your new provider will give you a more accurate idea of how long the switching process will take.
