TalkTalk Ultra Fibre Optic footprint expands

The Fibre to the Premises service from TalkTalk in York has expanded and boosted the level of FTTP coverage to 43.8% once combined with the other full fibre operators present in the city.

York has now moved into 2nd place behind Kingston Upon Hull for full fibre coverage which tops the list of local authorities with FTTP coverage of 86.9%.

There is still more construction underway which will boost the FTTP coverage further though in terms of ultrafast broadband the coverage seems to overlap a lot with the Virgin Media cable service.

The TalkTalk UFO service is available on three different contract lengths but all with the same underlying 900 Mbps FTTP service.

  • 1 month rolling contract £33.50/m and a £30 setup fee
  • 18 month contract £33.50/m and no setup fee
  • 24 month contract £25.50/m and no setup fee

For those who want a TV service the UFO + TV Box service benefits from the Black Friday Sale on TalkTalk TV boosts and is £32.50/m down from the standard £40.50/m and add a TV boost for £8 choosing between Sky Cinema Boost or Entertainment boost (the boosts are usually priced at £16/m and £12/m respectively).  


Pity they are leaving holes in coverage as they roll out - UFO covers all the roads around me, but they haven't covered mine and have stated they have no intention to infill.
