If you're thinking of switching to another provider, it's worth knowing all the facts so you can make the right decision for you. TalkTalk customers save on average £124 vs BT, £255 vs Sky and £300 vs Virgin Media so there are plenty of great benefits of being a TalkTalk customer.


The benefits of being a TalkTalk customer:

  1. Truly unlimited broadband as standard - no penalties like BT's £5.60 fee for every 5GB exceeded. 

  2. Pay the same price even if you're out of contract - BT charge up to £11.30 per month for being out of contract. 

  3. Free calls to TalkTalk households - You don't get this with any other provider!

  4. Savings features such as 10% off your line rental and 10% off your bill for paying straight away - Sky and BT don't offer you this.
  5. Exclusive Talk2Go App - make lower cost landline, international and mobile calls.

  6. More free privacy features than any other provider including Voicemail and Caller Display  - BT charge £1.75 per month for each of these services.
  7. Flexible TV content Boosts so you only pay for what you actually need, unlike Sky who charge £21.50 per month just for basic TV content.
  8. Great Value Boosts - We have the best value Boosts for international, UK and mobile calling to keep your bills low.

  9. Exclusive TalkTalk Mobile deals - You don't get this with Sky or BT.
  10. My TalkTalk App - Manage your bill from anywhere.
