Do you live in York? Fancy 1Gbps Ultra Fibre Optic broadband for £21.70 a month including line rental with TalkTalk?

Was just browsing the net for broadband deals and came across this deal.

Sky and TalkTalk are currently rolling out their Ultra Fibre Optic broadband in York (the first city to have it). 1GB fibre. Not bad eh. The most amazing thing is TalkTalk only want £21.70 a month including the line rental for it, which is actually cheaper than some of their ADSL packages.

This is quite a niche deal as only a limited amount of people will be able to get this deal in central York, but it's still an absolute bargain for that kind of broadband speed. And they are constantly expanding the availability of it in York. There is a post code checker on the website.

Sky want £30 plus line rental (so £47.40) a month for it.

Hope a few of you can benefit from it

"For TalkTalk customers UFO costs no more than our current broadband packages at standard price. As with all our packages UFO broadband is totally unlimited with no sneaky caps or hidden charges. Superfast Fibre customers will actually pay less for faster, more reliable Ultra Fibre Optic broadband."

Might need to change it to 1 Gbps (1000 Mbps).
the 1GB or 1000MB could be inferred as an allowance
I am their customer now and have bed experience. Can't wait to contact end and never again. I use normal broadband but still. I do not recommend this company.
talktalk....unencrypted customer data in some of the worst hacks in the UK, worst peak speeds and customer service i've had to deal with and their retention service is frankly insulting once you are stuck on their contract.

a company i'd avoid like the plague regardless of price.
Even if hell froze over and the world was due to end and I had to choose between the two, regardless of cost, there is no way on this planet ever would I consider either of these two providers, not worth it, sorry world, we end.

​Why would you? If the world was due to end, I wouldn't spend my last hours deciding a broadband deal! :-)
Answer to your (op) questions ... No and yes
Talk Talk, wouldn't touch them with a barge pole. After the widely published 'hack' of their systems last year where 157,000 customer details were taken, recently (this year) staff in an 'offshore' call centre were also arrested for data theft of Talk Talk customer details.

The internet speeds are OK for their fibre. But the routers they send out are appalling.

They aren't very helpful on the customer service front.
I was a talk talk business customer for 3 weeks. Despite them being unable to get my service working (2nd line, not their fault, open reach were absolutely hopeless as always), I was actually quite surprised by their customer services. TTB are nothing like the normal TT, they tried everything with open reach and when they were unable to get my 2ND line to more than half the speed of my main line, they released me from contract with no argument. If I lived In York, I'd see if TTB could offer the service. They used to be f2s before the big three started monopolising internet access so some of the decent UK team still exist. The problem I had was due CCA underground by cable. They went through a phase of buying appalling cheap cable and it's hopeless. It halves the speed of ADSL services which when you are only getting 5 normally is a disaster. I eventually managed to get Origin to fight open reach and after about 4 months, BT relented and swapped by line to an A class line. They don't own up to it but they grade their lines and know full well that some are junk. If you are lucky and get a decent engineer, you might get some help. it took 6 callous for me.
stupid auto correct. replace callous with call-out and by with my and the above makes a little more sense
Would not sign a contract with, or give my details to Talk Talk, even if they were giving their product away.
I remember walking down the high street at the height of their latest hack calamity last year and they had Talk Talk salesmen in the street trying to get people to sign up and give their credit card details to a salesman There and then on a piece of paper; people were literally laughing in their faces. And rightly so.
I live on the first Street to get this and was offered a free 8 month trial as they needed testers

Even for free I said no to talk talk
Good. Now this will force virgin to give us similar speeds. 4k pr0n are massive downloads.

Look at this guy, still downloading his pornography like it's 2002.

Just think about us poor country bumpkins struggling along with 1.5meg (max) and you lot are being offered a gazillion megabytes. oO
I live 12 miles away, but recently left for sky. Their broadband may not be any better but I'm saving £40 a month with sky.
Been with both Sky and Talk Talk and never had anything but great service. With BT now and had a nightmare of an experience when I joined ,ended up getting a small amount of compensation. Then they tried to charge me £5 for BT sport, but as explained to them it was included free in my contract. So there is no 100% reliable company
Don't know what to vote. Cold for TalkTalk but Hot for what they offer

Do you live in York? You have my sympathy.
Damn. Awesome deal. Kind of jealous of the people of York now. Birmingham next, maybe, TalkTalk?
This is a great deal for people who can get this. TalkTalk residential may have had some bad press recently with the hacks but for the price compared to Sky I personally think it's worth a try. Let face it, there had been other big companies like Sony that had been hacked in the past, that doesn't stop people using their service, right?

​Don't watch pr0n on a 55" TV or above, any close-up scenes will scar you for life. o0

So I've heard.
When I stopped in Oxford on Monday I picked up two sources of Ultra Optic. I was jealous. So now York is a suburb of Oxford??
I had pretty good experiences with TT TBH, wouldn't hesitate to use them again if the deal was right.
So fast that FBI is going to have problem to spy on and catch your data.

BT Sport Lite (BT Sport 1) is included free while you are in a BT contract.

If you want all the BT Sport channels (BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2, BT Sport Europe (Champions and Europa League), BT Sport ESPN) then it is free if you are a BTTV customer, otherwise it is £5 per month (normally £19.99 but £14.99 discount while you are in contract).

Till the place floods again and we all have no connectivity for weeks.
I was with talk talk years ago, pre fibre and although their customer service on the phone were useless, the people on their web forums were very well informed and the customer service people from there were both very willing and able to help out with any issues in my experience.

So, so true. I have 38mb now that BT take fibre to the local cabinet (more than fast enough for any normal user) but Virgin are currently ripping up all our pavements and leaving a dreadful mess so that they can offer their 100Mb. Apparently there is government subsidy for them to do it (ie your money and mine) but they are not told to target areas with dreadful speeds and they are not required to 'make good' properly. Scandalous!
Shame poppleton isn't included.
Talk talk - ruddy awful company - why would you sign up with this outfit
It makes me want to move to York...
I live in York but not a available for me. Very good offer though. Heat

I had TT standard BB for about 2 weeks was an absolute nightmare, but was able to cancel without any charges. But free testing of 1 gig speeds, I could of been persuaded to join them again
I read this as New York initially... was a bit sceptical. Time for coffee I think!

Mr Oxbrow said, “They dig holes then leave them for weeks on end … the whole estate is one big mess and I’ve been in touch with the council to see if there is anything they can do to move them on because we’ve had enough of it. It’s not going to be worth the hassle of having broadband and I hope no-one else is having to go through what we’ve been through.”
