TalkTalk’s cut-price broadband promotion will close today, giving savvy shoppers just hours to take advantage of the savings on offer.
Under the terms of the incentive, all customers who sign up online for the award-winningly Essentials home phone and broadband bundle will pay nothing for the first month of their 18-month contract.
TalkTalk will also waive the standard connection free, providing an extra saving of £29.99, and provide a free wireless router so that a single home broadband connection can be shared among multiple web enabled devices, such as consoles, laptops and smartphones.
Priced £6.99 per month, Essentials entitles takers to a super fast broadband connection of up to 24Mb (depending on location), plus a 40GB per month download limit. This is estimated as being sufficient for 55 movie downloads or 900 albums.
Also included are unlimited evening and weekend calls to UK landlines, including 0870 and 0845 numbers, and the option to nominate 16 mobile and international numbers on which you’ll receive a ten per cent discount.
TalkTalk is also currently offering free connection with its Broadband Plus product. Aimed at heavier users and priced at £14.99 per month, this also offers a headline broadband connection speed of up to 24MB, but features unlimited downloads per month – making it ideal for anyone who downloads content extensively or online gaming enthusiasts.
Meanwhile, the telephony facet of Broadband Plus includes unlimited anytime calls to UK landlines, a flat call rate to UK mobiles of 7p per minute at any time of day and 10 per cent off 16 mobile and international numbers of your choosing.
Finally, to keep you safe online anti-virus software is included, with protection for up to three computers.
TalkTalk was recently named the UK’s best home phone and broadband provider at the 2010 Top10.com Broadband Awards. This marked the second consecutive year the broadband provider has scooped the prize.
