TalkTalk is set to offer a new up to 80Mb broadband service, it has been announced.
The broadband provider is now taking pre-registrations for its Superfast Fibre Optic Broadband service, ahead of a launch in April 2012.
Consumers on the firm's 40Mb broadband deals are being given the opportunity to double their maximum download speeds, allowing them to optimise their online experience.
Subscribers will be able to upgrade to 80Mb fibre broadband - which also offers up to 20Mb upload speeds - for just £15 extra per month.
"The super-fast access is designed to answer the call for higher bandwidth services, giving customers a reliable speedy connection suited to watching live television over the internet and downloading movies," TalkTalk stated.
"The faster speed will also improve online gaming experiences which require quick response times and allow the whole family to be online at the same time on different devices without slowing the connection down."
Upon registration for the new ultra-fast service, TalkTalk will arrange a visit from an engineer to install the service.
An increasing number of UK homes are gaining access to the firm's fibre broadband deals, as TalkTalk continues to extend its network coverage.
Consumers can check whether they can receive 80Mb broadband by entering their postcode and phone number of TalkTalk's website.
Tristia Clarke, Commercial Director at TalkTalk, said demand is "continuing to increase" for super-fast broadband as more customers use their internet connections to watch live television, stream HD content, talk to their friends and family or play games that require real-time responses.
"We expect our new Superfast Fibre Optic Broadband to be very popular as it will allow the whole family to enjoy seamless connectivity and high upload and download speeds for unbeatable value," she added.
