Some excellent news on the broadband front. We understand that TalkTalk plans to launch unbundled broadband services from the Woolley exchange, with a planned launch date of 19th December 2011. This is great news for two reasons:
- TalkTalk will use the more advanced ADSL2+ technology rather than the older ADSL technology currently used by BT. This will provide significantly increased speeds for most users.
- Prices will be substantially lower than BT-based broadband services. For example, TalkTalk currently offers a combination of broadband (with a 40GB allowance) and telephone (with unlimited evening and weekend calls) for a total of £17.05 per month, which includes the line rental.
There are also a number of ISPs that will offer broadband services using the TalkTalk network, such as Xilo, and these will be cheaper than their BT-based services. More information (such as a comparison of all available services and pricing) will be provided as we get closer to the launch date.
