TalkTalk have announced that they are taking registration for their new fibre-optic broadband 'boost' which will offer new and existing customers the ability to get broadband at speeds of up to 40meg. This uses fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) technology based on BT's current roll-out of cabinets which is slowly spreading across the country.
"We are seeing increasing demand for superfast broadband and our Fibre Optic Boost is a great way to ensure seamless connectivity and high upload and download speeds. This boost is ideal for a wide range of customers, such as families who all want to be online at the same time, people wanting to stream HD content, or gamers needing lightning quick response times.
The installation process is straight forward as an engineer will make a home visit to get the connection up and running. We expect this boost to be very popular and will be aiming to make it available to as many people as possible."Tristia Clarke, (Commercial Director) TalkTalk
Pricing and a launch date haven't been announced yet, but TalkTalk are inviting people to register interest in the new option which can be done at www.talktalk.co.uk/fibre. There is also an availabilty checker on here which indicate what speed will be available on your line.
A faster service does also make it possible to download or upload data much more quickly, so we hope that TalkTalk will also introduce a higher usage cap for those who opt for the faster product.
