If you want to save some costs, it’s worth looking at TalkTalk’s latest bundles
TalkTalk currently has some solid broadband deals available, especially for those looking to save a few pounds. The internet company’s latest batch of offers runs until early September, so those whose contracts are not fully renewable can still take advantage of the latest deals.
TalkTalk compares its prices directly with BT and tells customers how much they can save by switching between the two companies. Since both are powered by Openreach cables – if you can get a BT broadband connection at home, you can also sign up with TalkTalk. Not only that, but switching between the two companies is also made easier by this shared infrastructure. Under Ofcom’s rules, you don’t even have to bother calling BT to tell them you’re leaving – the new company will handle all the hassle and end your current service so there’s no internet loss before the new contract goes into effect.
If you’re looking for the biggest savings compared to what you get from BT, look no further than TalkTalk’s Fiber 65 plan.
With average download speeds of 67 Mbps, that should be more than enough to stream shows and movies from Netflix in the highest quality available (4K streaming requires a minimum of 25 Mbps, Netflix claims). TalkTalk imposes no download limits, so you can stream all day and all night at no extra cost. There is also a free Wi-Fi Hub and 24/7 online support. TalkTalk says you’ll save £112.86 compared to BT’s comparable speed plans.
If that’s still a bit pricey for you, TalkTalk’s Fiber 35 is available for just £23 a month. For that you get unlimited downloads with an average speed of 38Mbps. You get the same Wi-Fi Hub available with the faster Fiber 65 plan, as well as 24/7 online support. It’s worth noting, though, that 35 Mbps may not be enough for a busy household with multiple working from home, downloading gadget updates, streaming music and movies, and more.
Both the Fiber 35 and Fiber 65 broadband plans can be upgraded to a ‘Fibre Plus’ plan. These plans cost a little more. However, TalkTalk bundles a few extras.
If you pay a little extra each month, TalkTalk includes an Echo Dot and Alexa-enabled Smart Plug
Fiber Plus broadband bundles offer everything that comes as standard with the Standard plan, plus “SuperSafe” online security powered by F-Secure (worth £72) and an Amazon Tech Pack, which includes the latest version of the Amazon Echo Dot smart speaker and an Amazon Smart Plug. These would normally cost £74.98 if bought standalone.
For those who don’t know, the Amazon Echo Dot is a small smart speaker powered by AI assistant Alexa. With the Smart Plug, you can turn any AC-powered device on or off with a simple voice command to Alexa. Elsewhere, the chatty AI can also be used to play your favorite tracks from Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music and more. Podcasts and audiobooks are also supported. Ask Alexa can also set alarms and timers, share the latest headlines, or tell you a joke.
All TalkTalk broadband subscriptions have a term of 18 months.
