Free broadband and £50 vouchers from TalkTalk

TalkTalk has responded to the free broadband offer by Sky with its own new range of offers that run until 8th January 2015.

  • Simply Broadband, unlimited ADSL2+ broadband, free for 12 months then £3.50 per month. £50 High Street shopping voucher. 18 month contract. No inclusive calls
  • Fibre based broadband, unlimited usage and speeds of up to 38 Mbps download, up to 2 Mbps upload. £5 per month for 12 months, then £13.50 per month. 18 month contract. £50 shopping voucher.
  • PlusTV with fibre based broadband Just £14.25 per month for 12 months, then £28.50 per month. 18 month contract. £50 Love2Shop voucher. Includes a free mobile SIM with 200MB data, 100 minutes of calls and 250 texts. Full featured YouView box. 7 Sky TV channels. Anytime calls to UK landlines.

For all the services voice line rental at £16.70 per month applies, which can be lowered to the equivalent of £15.03 per month if you pay 12 months in advance.


The line rental once again is the largest cost of this package, TT must think they are really generous that if people tie up £180 for a whole year in TT bank account they will get a whole £1.67 a month off their line rental. Is it not about time this con of paying high prices for line rental ended?

@zyborg. For £180 you save £20 over the year - that is more than you are likely to get in interest so a worthwhile investment. Plus, it is only 1 month at £180 as it would reduce by £15.03 for second month. And for each thereafter meaning it is even better than appears. Fewer other investments would have same return.

Cont - over a full year using compound interest I work that out at over 18% APR. Pretty good really compare to alternatives.
