TalkTalk flattens partial fibre pricing to compete with Vodafone

Competition with Vodafone who recently started selling their two VDSL2 (FTTC - partial fibre) products at the same price seems to mean TalkTalk are doing the same thing now, with Faster Fibre and Superfast Fibre both selling for £23.50m during the 18 month contract term.

The Faster Fibre service is based on a capped 40 Mbps (Mega bits per second) down and 10 Mbps up Openreach VDSL2 service, and the Superfast Fibre is capped at the higher 80 Mbps down and 20 Mbps up. Only those with speed estimates above 40 Mbps should consider the faster of the two options and if you are only slightly above the estimate remember that if you lapse onto the standard pricing the two services are priced at £36/m and £41/m respectively.

Vodafone is still 50 pence per month cheaper and there is the free Amazon Echo Plus, plus for those with slower lines the 15% you can claim back each month if you don't meet the guaranteed speeds may add be a plus point. NOTE: The Vodafone guarantee is based around the connection speed (sync speed) between the Vodafone modem/router and the VDSL2 street cabinet. Existing Vodafone mobile pay monthly customers also get a £3/m price reduction.

There seems to be some confusion here as TalkTalk's Faster Fibre (with the Speed boost) is the 76Mbps service.

Now transpires that TT also calls it Superfast Fibre depending on where its available. Most confusing...:-(

Not the only price changes TT are making, I've got an old Tiscali email address that still gets the odd email, TT want £5 a month for ex TT customers to keep old emails going!

Faster Fibre was the 40/10 service, it used to be called Large or Boost for the 80/20 product.

Naming has changed

Faster Fibre stays 40/10
Superfast Fibre is using 80/20
