Internet service provider (ISP) TalkTalk will be able to deliver super-fast broadband to its customers from May 2011, it has been announced.
Back in January, the broadband provider unveiled plans to launch 40Mb fixed broadband services in April, but the launch date has been pushed back a further month.
TalkTalk, as a BT Openreach wholesale customer, will use BT's fibre broadband network to deliver enhanced broadband deals to its subscriber base.
With faster download speeds available, TalkTalk customers will be able to enjoy improved streaming, easier access to online films and music, and an all-round better browsing experience.
Households wishing to upgrade to the 'up to 40Mb' service will be required to pay a one-off installation fee of £25, which includes a modem.
They will then be subject to an additional £10 per month fee for the duration of their 18-month broadband deal.
Rival ISP Plusnet, which also uses BT's network to supply broadband packages, is set to launch its own 40Mb fibre-to-the-cabinet broadband deals later this month.
