TalkTalk is keen to promote the simple fact that the FTTC fibre based broadband services are not just available from BT under the Infinity banner and a clear way to do this is keep appearing at the top of tables of offers and the new £5 per month for the first year on its up to 38 Mbps service is doing just that.
Update Monday 24th November: The Love2Shop vouchers have returned to TalkTalk with a value of £100 on qualifying products and run for ten days until 4th December 2014. The voucher in conjunction with the fibre offer means over the 18 month contract term the price works out at £18.98 per month and that includes the voice line rental. This means that fibre services are now cheaper than the original TalkTalk product launched in 2006 once special offers are exploited.
The TalkTalk up to 38 Mbps download (up to 2 Mbps upload) fibre based service is usually £13.50 per month, but for the first 12 months of the 18 month contract if you signup online you can get it for £5 a month. Voice line rental at £16.70 is required (reduces to £14.35 if you pay annually) and the offer ends on 11th December 2014.
