TalkTalk has launched a new home phone upgrade for broadband package subscribers.

The broadband provider's new 500 Global Minute Boost allows customers to take advantage of great value calls to more than 100 international destinations.

Consumers pay just £5 per month for the phone bolt-on, which enables them to make cut-price calls to landline and mobile calls.

Alex Hollingdale, Director of Product Management at TalkTalk, described the upgrade as a "truly global calling product".

"[It] offers customers inclusive calls to a wide range of destinations including India, Pakistan, South Africa, and Brazil, as well as the top European destinations, USA, Canada and Australia," he noted.

"Not only does the Global Minutes Boost remove the need for – or hassle of – using calling cards or international mobile SIMs, but it means customers can make some quite staggering savings."

Mr Hollingdale said it costs over 50p per minute to call an India mobile from a BT landline, but TalkTalk customers can now enjoy prices of just 1p per minute.

"With this flexible Boost customers can use their minutes anytime of the day or night and can manage their minutes online through My Account," he explained.

"It joins the TalkTalk range of existing Boosts that allow customers to customise their phone and broadband package to their own requirements."

Mr Hollingdale said the Global Minutes Boost is "without a doubt" the best way to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, while keeping costs under control.

TalkTalk is currently enabling UK consumers to make a 50 per cent saving on their broadband and home phone services.

The firm's entry-level Essentials broadband deal – which includes a 40GB usage allowance - is priced at £3.25 per month, rising to £6.50 after six months.

And the higher tier Plus package, which comes with an unlimited usage allowance and unlimited calls, is priced at £7.25 per month, down from £14.50.
