All of TalkTalk’s full fibre plans are data-only. This means you won’t get a home phone (landline) service included. You’ll also lose your existing landline number when you switch to a TalkTalk Future Fibre plan. If you’re looking for full fibre broadband with a home phone service, consider getting a full fibre service from BT or Sky instead.

In addition, a Fibre 65 data-only service may also be available if you already have a full fibre connection in your home.

TalkTalk Amazon Eero Router

When you’re using TalkTalk’s full fibre broadband, you’ll get a router that distributes a Wi-Fi signal to your other devices.

Unlike most other providers which continue producing their own router, TalkTalk has instead decided to partner with Amazon to offer the Eero 6 on full fibre plans. This is a modern Wi-Fi 6 router that’s designed to connect up to 75 devices to the internet at the same time. It’s also mesh-ready so you can simply buy an extra router to improve the coverage in your home. Alternatively, you can add TalkTalk’s Total Home Wi-Fi service for an extra £6 per month.

Depending on the plan you choose, you’ll either receive the Eero 6 router or the Eero 6 Pro router. Customers on Fibre 150 will receive the Amazon eero 6 and customers on Fibre 500 will receive the Amazon eero 6 Pro. Meanwhile, if you sign up for the fastest Fibre 900 plan, you’ll receive two Eero 6 Pro routers that can be used together in mesh formation.

The following table compares the technical specifications of the Amazon eero routers:

You can add TalkTalk’s Total Home Wi-Fi service for an extra £6/month. With this, you’ll receive an extra Amazon eero router to improve the Wi-Fi in your home. You’ll also benefit from TalkTalk’s Total Home Coverage Promise. This says you’ll be able to get a download speed of at least 10Mbps in all eligible rooms in your home. If this isn’t possible, an engineer may be sent to investigate. Where necessary, additional Amazon eeros may also be provided.

The Amazon Eero routers provided by TalkTalk are locked and restricted to use on their network.

If you don’t currently have an Openreach modem (ONT) inside your home, you’ll also get one installed as part of the set-up process for TalkTalk’s full fibre broadband. Your Amazon eero router will need to be plugged into the Openreach modem.

Coverage & Availability

TalkTalk’s Future Fibre service use fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) technology on the Openreach network. At the time of writing, this is available in around 6 million UK homes.

Switching to TalkTalk

It’s easy switching your broadband provider to TalkTalk.

You can start by signing up for your new full fibre broadband plan online. When you do this, TalkTalk will arrange a date for the service to be installed in your home.

It’s important to be aware that TalkTalk’s full fibre plans are a data-only service. You won’t get a home phone service on full fibre and you’ll lose your existing landline number when you move over.

With most other providers, there’s no need to cancel your old broadband service as TalkTalk can contact your old provider to do this for you. However, if you’re switching from Virgin Media or another non-Openreach provider, you’ll need to contact them separately to cancel your old service.

  • i have the talktalk full fibre 500 and i get the download speed but not much on the upload it is being stuck at 50 mbps i think i need a better router shout fix this issue also i tested the speed directly connected to the fibre ont and i got the full speed

  • Paul Williams said:

    I had future 150 installed 1 month ago and it is an improvement on the poor fibre 35 which I previously had. When it was installed and tested by open reach engineer I received only 85 Mbps sometimes 90 Mbps, this was in the room were the router is, I then proceeded to test all the rooms in my home. In the room next to the router I had only 6 Mbps and the rest of my home the same, except for the room above the router which was 85 Mbps.
    On complaining to talktalk they asked me to do several tests and still 85 Mbps in the room with router and above and 6 Mbps in the rest of house.
    The final test was to connect my lap top to incoming line which gave 150 Mbps, seems that the problem is the router? Talktalk told me twice they would look into this and would come back to me but never did…… I have since put boosters around my home and achieve around 40 Mbps in the other rooms?
