How do TalkTalk Business broadband deals compare to the competition? 

Obviously, TalkTalk isn't the only company offering business broadband but the good news is that they are a strong option against the competition when it comes to price. With both names you know - Virgin, BT, Sky - and names you may not know so well (Toople comes to mind) there is a wide variety of choices.

Take a look through our business broadband deals guide and you'll see TalkTalk comes out near the top for pricing and speeds, facing only some competition in pricing from Plusnet and lesser-known companies and a war over speeds from Virgin.

How good is TalkTalk Business broadband?

With a four-star rating on review site Trustpilot coming from over 3,000 reviews, you can rest assured that TalkTalk is a good choice to go for. And if you do end up having any troubles, you can get through to TalkTalk's customer care 365 days of the year.

Can I get a leased line with TalkTalk?

If your business requires some uninterrupted, super fast speeds, a leased line could be needed. And luckily, TalkTalk offers them.

In case you're not completely sure what we mean, getting a leased line simply means you do not have to share the same broadband line with other people - you get one exclusively for your business. 

This means dedicated, fast, reliable and secure ethernet connectivity. But obviously, that increase in both speeds and reliability means a pretty significant increase in price.

TalkTalk is currently offering a promotion on its leased lines, giving 15% off specific offers but even then, expect to be paying a higher bill for the privilege of your own line.

Head over to TalkTallk's site to see its full range of leased line packages.

Do I need to pay any additional fees with TalkTalk?

This completely depends on which package you go for but for the most part, yes. The good news is that the majority of TalkTalk's business packages include line rental (excluding VAT) and many of them lack connection fees. 

However, for the majority of TalkTalk business deals you will need to pay a P&P fee (postal and packing). Take a close look when buying your package to see what additional fees you may need to pay.

How long will my TalkTalk business broadband contract last?

Depending on which of TalkTalk's packages you go for, you will either be tied into a 12 month or 24 month contract. After that, the price will jump up. Then, you can just invest in a new business broadband deal to save yourself from any increased fees.
