Broadband and line rental from £7.79 a month with latest TalkTalk offer

TalkTalk has just pulled the rug out from underneath many of its low priced competitors with the latest voucher that is running until 21st August 2014. The £100 shopping voucher when combined with the half price deals currently running means that if you make full use of the shopping voucher you can effectively have broadband and voice line rental for £62 in the first year.

  • SimplyBroadband (ADSL2+) is available at £1.75 per month for the 12 months of the minimum term contract then then £3.50 per month. If you pay your voice line rental a year in advance (£172.20) the equivalent monthly total works out at £7.79 once the £100 voucher is factored in, even if you pay line rental monthly (£15.95) the monthly figure is just £9.37.
  • Superpowered fibre (up to 38 Mbps download, up to 1.9 Mbps upload) is available for £6.75 per month for six months, then £13.50 per month on an 18 month contract. Voice line rental from £11.75 per month is required.
  • Plus TV which is ADSL2+ with a full featured YouView PVR (worth £299) and seven Sky channels in addition to the numerous free to air channels is priced at £9.25 per month for six months then £18.50 per month. 18 month contract and voice line is required.

The £100 Love2Shop voucher is redeemable in various High Street stores including Argos and Boots, but is only available to those who do not need a new telephone number or new line. The Speedy Payment Discount scheme is a good way to save a further 15% on your TalkTalk bill, since by paying the bill within 24 hours of notification you save, even if you have a direct debit set-up to guarantee it is paid each month (if you pay in the 24 hour window, the direct debit is not taken that month).

Update 5:30pm The half price offer actually runs for 12 months on SimplyBroadband which reduces monthly equivalent price during the minimum period from £6.04 to £5.17 (or £10.24 to £9.37 if you pay line rental monthly).

Update 6pm 13th August We have just learnt that TalkTalk has increased the price of its Line Rental Saver option from £141 to £172.20. This increase means the monthly equivalent line rental is £14.35 if you pay the rental 12 months in advance as a lump sum. We have tweaked the monthly pricing once all the offers are accounted for and SimplyBroadband goes from £5.17 per month to £7.79.


The fight between suppliers is all about the last mile of copper and call charges......

Really sick of tired with many isp's still fighting for cheaper broadband & phone lines but later increasing in the middle half way of contract! Will never deal with this ever again!

@adslmax well am sure providers will be happy to let you sign-up with no introductory offers, i.e. pay the full price from month 1.

Cheap Broadband deals. There's no free lunch . you get what pay for. Re price increases mid term. Ofcom rules are that you should be able to cancel without penalty
