TalkTalk broadband packages compared - what broadband speed can I get with TalkTalk?

It's one of the trickier decisions you'll have to make when choosing your broadband deal - do you save money with standard ADSL or splash the extra on a superfast fibre broadband package? Your options on TalkTalk are as follows:

TalkTalk Fast Broadband

To be honest, the name is slightly misleading here. TalkTalk's so-called Fast Broadband is no quicker than any other standard ADSL 17Mb (around 2.1MB per second) internet connection. But TalkTalk is invariably around the cheapest providers on the market. TalkTalk Fast Broadband includes:

  • Up to 17Mb speed
  • Super Router
  • Unlimited data usage
  • Super-Safe antivirus from F-Secure

TalkTalk Faster Broadband

If there are several members in your household who all use the internet simultaneously, it's well worth the extra few pounds a month to upgrade to TalkTalk's superfast fibre optic offering - Faster Broadband. That way, you reduce the chance of being frustrated by laggy video streams, slow downloads and sluggish web surfing. It's not available everywhere however, so use our postcode checker at the top of the page to see whether fibre is available where you live. TalkTalk Faster Broadband includes:

  • Up to 38Mb speed 
  • Super Router
  • Unlimited data usage
  • Super-Safe antivirus from F-Secure

 TalkTalk Faster Fibre Broadband with Speed Boost

Upgrade to Speed Boost and take your broadband up to 76Mb - that's not far off 10MB per second! This has to be your choice if you intend to stream 4K TV and films. Go for this package and you can more or less forget any concerns about interrupted internet use, regardless of how many people are trying to access it at once. Faster Fibre Broadband with Speed Boost includes:

  • Up to 76Mb speed 
  • Super Router
  • Unlimited data usage
  • Super-Safe antivirus from F-Secure

What TalkTalk TV packages can I add to broadband?

Its internet and fibre deals may be cheap enough on their own, but some TalkTalk TV offers make the provider really worth considering if you want a one-stop shop for broadband and TV.

TalkTalk TV This basic plan is basically just the regular 80-odd channels that you get on Freeview. So if you already have Freeview integrated into your TV or via a set-top box, then we wouldn't advise paying extra for this from TalkTalk.

TalkTalk TV Plus TV Plus adds Sky's basic suite of channels. So on top of the regular Freeview content, you also get Sky 1 and 2, Sky Arts, Sky Living and Sky Sports News.

What is the TalkTalk Super Router?

No matter which TalkTalk broadband plan you opt for, you'll be sent the standard TalkTalk router - the grand sounding TalkTalk Super Router. It's delivered free of charge and TalkTalk describes it as featuring the “best performance in class”. 

How long will my TalkTalk broadband contract last?

TalkTalk gives you a little bit more flexibility than some other providers. You can choose from 12, 18 or 24-month contracts. And TalkTalk guarantees your monthly tariff for the entire course of the contract, so it's potentially worth going for a longer contract if you can bag a Black Friday-esque price. That said, it tends to keep its best prices for 18-month deals.

Do I get a TalkTalk landline?

You do indeed. Every TalkTalk broadband package comes with a landline included in the price. And it throws in free call privacy features as well, including caller display, anonymous caller reject and last caller barring. 

TalkTalk doesn't have the usual array of different calling plans that other providers offer. But you can add Unlimited UK Calls - giving as many calls as you like to UK mobiles and landlines - or choose from one of three international call packages.

If you're worried that you'll have to change telephone number when you switch to TalkTalk, there's really no need to be. Like most other providers (e.g. BT, Sky, Plusnet, etc), TalkTalk uses an Openreach landline. And if you were previously with Virgin, it's easy to 'port' your number over.

Can I add TalkTalk mobile?

This is a very easy one to answer - it's a big, fat NO. Or at least not at the moment. TalkTalk isn't currently doing mobile contracts, but its website suggests that it isn't far away on the horizon. We're hoping that when it does, TalkTalk will follow the likes of Vodafone and EE by offering discounts if you take both services.
