TalkTalk packages - what are my options?

Need a bit of everything, but don’t want to break the bank? Take a look at TalkTalk (www.talktalk.co.uk). As ‘quad-play’ providers go - that is, companies that offer broadband, home phone, TV, and mobile - TalkTalk’s among the cheapest and the simplest.

A basic TalkTalk bundle has broadband and home phone, plus a free mobile SIM. Then on top of that, you can add TV as you want it.

Let’s have a closer look at what packages there are to choose from.

TalkTalk broadband

A TalkTalk package starts with a choice of broadband. It offers two main options, which are:

  • Fast Broadband - Up to 17Mb download speed, great for browsing, email, and social media.
  • Faster Fibre Broadband - Fibre optic, with download speeds up to either 38Mb or 76Mb, making it good for big households or for streaming video.

Don’t worry if the broadband you choose doesn’t quite cut it - TalkTalk allows you to change your package at any time, though it’ll mean signing a fresh contract.

All its packages include unlimited downloads, so you can browse and download without worrying about a usage cap, and are truly unlimited, so TalkTalk won’t slow your connection even at peak times. You’ll also get one of TalkTalk’s Super Routers, with their top-notch wireless signal, and some internet security in the form of HomeSafe and SuperSafe. The full SuperSafe Boost is also available if you want to protect more than one device.

Sadly, landline-free broadband isn’t available from TalkTalk - a TalkTalk phone line is required.

Read our guide to TalkTalk broadband for all the juicy details.

TalkTalk home phone

TalkTalk home phone is quite limited. There’s just one basic package, line rental with pay-as-you-go calls, and it’s only available with broadband - not as line rental on its own.

However, that package comes with some pretty cool bonuses, like calling features and the Talk2Go app for your smartphone, which lets you transfer your landline minutes to your mobile.

And as well as that, it’s very flexible. ‘Boosts’ can be added and removed on a rolling monthly basis, meaning you can get extra features whenever you need them. These include Unlimited UK Calls, and Boosts for international calling minutes.

Check out the details in our guide to TalkTalk phone.

Once you’ve got your broadband and home phone picked out, it’s time to look at TV.

TalkTalk TV

TalkTalk’s TV packages can be bundled in with their broadband too. There are two main options:

  • TV - comes with a TalkTalk TV box, 70+ free-to-air channels, pause and rewind but no recording
  • TV Plus - comes with a YouView+ box so you can pause, rewind, and record 200+ hours of live TV, and 30+ extra entertainment channels included as standard on top of the usual free-to-air ones

Both packages also include seven-day catch up from services like BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4OD, and so on. You’ll also get access to Netflix, with the option to include a subscription in your monthly TalkTalk bill, and the TV2Go app - so you can watch on demand TV from your phone or tablet whenever you’re connected to Wi-Fi.

Again, they’re very flexible. Although there’s only two basic options, both can have a number of Boosts added on for extra bunches of channels, letting you tailor your TV exactly how you like it. And since they’re on monthly rolling subscriptions too, you can add and remove them at any point.

Boosts include the Entertainment Boost, Kids Boost for more kids TV, Asian Boost for Bollywood movies and Indian TV, Sky Cinema, Sky Sports, and more.

TalkTalk Mobile

With every TalkTalk plan, you’ll also get a free TalkTalk Mobile SIM thrown in that comes with 500MB of mobile data a month. You can stick it in your phone straight away, keep it as an emergency spare, or whatever you like.

If you like the sound of a TalkTalk Mobile plan, however, there has plenty of other options available for you too. You can get phone contracts and SIM-only deals on a range of tariffs, sometimes up to 4GB of data per month.

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 long does it take to switch broadband?
    When you sign up to a new provider, they’ll contact your existing one and request a transfer of your service. The only exception is when you're switching to or from Virgin Media, in which case you'll have to call and cancel. While switching times vary depending on the type of package, it shouldn’t usually take more than 10 working days. It can take longer if you don’t currently have a phone line, as an engineer will need to come out and install one for you.
  3. Will bundling save me money?

    The great thing about bundling your services i.e. getting two or more of your home communications services from the same provider, is that it can potentially make your life both easier AND cheaper. Certain bundles can mean savings of up to a few hundred pounds when compared with certain separate deals. Plus, you'll only have to deal with one supplier rather than getting two or three separate bills each month, and even worse, having to contact several different call centres if you have problems with your services.

    However, think carefully before you bundle. If you don’t plan on using one of the services then unless having it is cheaper than not, it’s not worth getting.

  4. 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.

  5. How do I switch to a new TV service?
    Switching TV services is a breeze if you use a comparison service like ours. Simply enter your postcode, and we’ll list all your different options side by side, so you can easily compare features and price. When you find a package you like, click the link and you’ll be taken straight to the provider’s site. Fast, simple and hassle-free.
