TalkTalk launch mobile phone and mobile broadband services
TalkTalk have officially announced the launch of their mobile and mobile broadband packages which are available now. These products come following a deal signed between TalkTalk and Vodafone earlier this year which allows TalkTalk customers to use the Vodafone network through a MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) agreement. All products are currently only available to existing TalkTalk customers. The mobile voice products offer a sim-only mobile service with two different options available for customers to take:
|Mobile Essentials||Mobile Plus|
|Landline calls||5p per minute*||Unlimited^|
|Mobile Calls||5p per minute*||Unlimited^|
|5p per minute*||Unlimited^|
|Text messages||5p per text*||Unlimited^|
|Mobile Internet||50p per day (25MB per day)||75p per day (150MB per month)|
|Contract||30 days notice||30 days notice|
* If you use more than the £10 bundle, minutes and texts are charged at 10p
rather than 5p.
^ Subject to combined £200 per month fair usage policy.
Only one mobile broadband product is offered which gives a USB dongle for £10 per month with a £29.99 one-off charge for the USB modem. If you use more than the 1GB of data, then excess charges of 10p per MB will apply. The mobile broadband product is also available on a one-month rolling contract so again just 30-days notice is required to terminate. TalkTalk have yet to announce any bundle deals which would allow them to offer triple-play products (although not the usual three) of home phone, broadband and mobile all bundled together.
