TALKTALK: Boradband, Line rental, and Sim offer £20 (retention deal)

29
Found 27th Nov 2016
Just renewed my contract with TalkTalk fixed for 18months.

Phoned up to cancel and was given and mazing deal, new customers can also try it.

I got broadband and line rental, with free super router delivered, also was offered free Sim with 200 mins and 500mb data, unlimited texts.

Also the Sim is for as long as I remain with them even after 18months, the Sim remains free.

If you are looking for cheap contract no harm in asking even if you not a customer, and topcashback.

If you take in to account the Sim it works out less than £15.00 a month.

How is this an amazing deal? With BT this costs less than £14 a month if Topcashback tracks and BT gives £100 reward as stated? I just signed up to BT. You also get BT TV and BT sports and BT Wifi. TalkTalk simply cannot match the deals. They are losing customers. Okay, you have to leave BT after 12 months. You can go back to TalkTalk and use Quidco/TCB next year.

Like TalkTalk BT sims are essentially free via cashback sites (they actually pay you for them).

Did you post that deal? I looked around I couldn't find any better. If you are taking in to account Topcashback which you can also get with TalkTalk. and with BT you have to pay extra £9 upfront cost.

As for Taltalk loosing customers maybe thats why they are giving these offers, all good for consumers, and I hope someone can benefit.

Wow, that's better than than their Black Friday deal, and from a company not known for get good loyalty offers. Wish I could have had that when I switched last year away from BT, just moved away from TT because they would not move away from the new fixed price contracts.

I chose the basic package with 17mb enough for my needs.

Thats not the same if you going to 3rd party web sites for discounts and vouchers.

Don't touch this company they offer cheap deals, any issues cross your fingers, get some lucky heather and a 4 leaf clover, if you phone them at all it a nightmare, they give there foreign colleagues British names for some strange reason also.
Hopefully I'm alone in this view of TalkTalk

From experience I can tell you they are all about the same, most-likely the call centres in the same building somewhere.

I have nothing but bad experience from BT, Vodafone, Talkmobile.

Would pay double just to avoid these clowns. Ceased my line when I tried to transfer, even though I had it in writing that its a transfer NOT cease. Caused us no end of grief. Lost our line, our number and now still without phone or broadband. All because I refused to hear a 'good offer' from the loyalty guy when I told him I'm transferring to BT.

I'd never go to BT out of principle, I remember how they used to treat us and fleeced the British public.

I posted the deal in the hope someone might find it useful, I am happy with TalkTalk but if you think it's not for you then don't take it.

Up to 17mpb for me is 2.5 mbs. I have 2 lines. One with ADSL 17mps in which I get 2.5mpbs and one Fibre where I get 36mbs (I work from home) so have 2 lines.

I signed up to BT. The £100 Mastercard is from BT (which can be relied upon). The rest is from TopCashBack.
TalkTalk offered me £20 a month for Fibre not ASDL when I said I was leaving, and wanted an 18 month contract.
BT was just better and gives BT Sports and TV. I know I have to leave after 12 months as prices become a joke.

I was paying TalkTalk for line rental and Fibre (plus sim cards) just £13.85 a month for 12 months and then just over £21 a month for the last 6 months. I just finished 12 months and could leave due to price hikes.

Even Sky charges just £15 a month for ADSL and line rental and gives you £75, i.e. £8.75 a month equivalent.
TalkTalk is such a bad deal.


Damn, took their offer on Friday for £25. Didn' take the router as they wanted £6.95 to deliver. What's the hope if I ring up and say I know someone who was offered £20 they'd change my deal?

Why not go via TopCashBack or Quidco? You would get Fibre for less than £25 a month from TalkTalk.

Don't pay line rental upfront, then you can happily leave with no early temination fees within 30days of receiving the obligatory mid-term price rise notification and benefit from another provider's joining / cashback incentives long before the original contract would have ended.

TalkTalk new contracts are now fixed price with no price increases in the term.
I assumed BT was fixed as they specify the ridiculous cost at month 13.

TT has the worst customer service on the market. I was offered for £25 same net speed (fibre 38MB) with international calls. After a week they downgraded my service do ADSL and they removed international mobile calls giving me only landline calls with 1000min limit to USA and Australia. I was told that I have picked fast internet, instead of super fast fibre... long story, over 5 hours spent on the phone to sort it out. They will reconnect me but it will take another 2 weeks. ADSL love to freeze few times per day. I have 2 MB !!! Forgot to mention, I got my free mobile sim with faster internet than my broadband... such a joke !

Not really a great deal since for standard price is only £22.95 per month. You could have haggled for a bigger discount depending how long you been with talktalk.
Best retention deal I got was 76mbps + Unlimited calls to landline and mobile + their youview box (already had one) + the sim plan for £28.75. I have yet to see if anyone can beat that for a similar package other than the expired SSE's £21 76mbps + unlimited calls.

Any detrimental change in terms is sufficient to permit 30day notice of contract termination without penalty. Detrimental change may be price or service changes, such as inclusive calls between hours of xx and yy being reduced / charges introduced, or bandwidth limits tightened etc. Only aware of BT allegedly freezing its Sports fees, not ll or bb, but open to any applicable info.

Look at BT deals via Quidco/TCB. Beats it.
I effectively got paid for sims from BT. Unlimited calls, unlimited text, 500Mb £5 per month for 1 year, but cashback and Amazon vouchers means a profit. 5 per account.
TalkTalk small sim is effectively free via TCB. I am taking the maximum 5 before my account is transferred to BT.
I will cancel all BT sims after 12 months, and port to TalkTalk. Then either move back to TT and get new sims from TT and internal port or see what else I can get for free. I have effectively got mobile contacts free for 8 years now.

Not for 76mbps. For the 52 mbps package then yes since talktalk only offers 38mbps. Personally don't see amazon voucher as gaining cash back. It just forces me to buy something from amazon or try to sell it.

Do you get 76mps? On 52mps I will be lucky to get 40mbs, in which case up to 76mps is pointless.
On ADSL up to 17mbs I get 2.5mbs.
Distance of home to box is a factor.

Amazon, yes it is hard to use for many. I also struggle. I just purchased SSDs after Christmas. Less than £40 for 240gb last year. Sold on Gumtree for £50! But if one has business use, it is nice to have higher invoices and kickback vouchers!

I get 72mbps all day. Max sync rate is actually 99mbps. So it's one reason why I decided to go for it plus the 20 mbps upload is rather nice to have when needed.
The problem isn't about how hard/easy it is to use but I would tend to buy some pointless stuff on there.Trying to not overbuy on prime now too
Still waiting for 1tb ssd to come down to £90-100 then that would probably be the last ssd I need to buy.

If you are taking in to account TopCashBack discount then TalkTalk are offering up to £195.50 on TCB site.

The prices could be cheaper all around if BT was not running monopoly on wholesale prices.

TalkTalk contracts are for 18 months. For standard Fibre is is almost £10 month off. Still expensive. But no doubt I will be forced to return in 1 year to them due to high BT prices at month 13.
BT was privatised, shareholders paid for the infrastructure, why should they give it away? Cable providers built their own infrastructure and I do not see people claiming Virgin have a monopoly on super fast internet via their fibre optic network. If Virgin did not have a monopoly then prices would be lower. Why isn't Virgin forced to offer wholesale prices?

​They may have some ports free or will be available soon. You could be cheeky and call back to discount your total package to £25.
