What is TalkTalk Full Fibre?

In the UK, TalkTalk now offers next-generation full fibre broadband.

With regular fibre broadband, the final part of the connection between the street cabinet and your home uses an old copper phone line.

In contrast, full fibre broadband (also known as fibre-to-the-premises, or FTTP for short) uses a fibre optic connection all the way into your home. On TalkTalk, this gives you four main benefits:

  • You’ll get download speeds up to 24 times faster than standard fibre broadband. With TalkTalk’s full fibre broadband, you’ll get download speeds of up to 944Mbps on average. This allows you to download things much faster – for instance, you can download a HD movie in less than 40 seconds.
  • You can stream, browse & download on more devices at the same time. With full fibre technology, you’ll be able to use more devices at the same time on your broadband connection, without things slowing down for other people or other devices.
  • You’ll get a more reliable broadband service. As full fibre does not rely on an old copper phone line, it’s more reliable and is not susceptible to the same problems with noise and interference.
  • You’ll get a next-generation Amazon eero router. On TalkTalk’s full fibre plans, you’ll get a next-generation Amazon eero router included. This supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 technology for better speeds and performance throughout your home. It also supports mesh technology with TalkTalk’s Total Home Wi-Fi.

TalkTalk’s full fibre service is offered on a range of different physical networks. For instance, you can get TalkTalk’s full fibre broadband on an Openreach, CityFibre or Freedom Fibre powered connection.

As well as the faster download speeds, you’ll get the upgraded eero Pro 6 router from Amazon. Unlike the regular eero 6, this supports tri-band technology, allowing for even better Wi-Fi performance on compatible devices. Your Wi-Fi network can also cover a wider area, up to 2,000 square feet (up to 190m²).

Fibre 900

For the ultimate full fibre experience, you can choose TalkTalk’s Fibre 900 plan (also known as Full Fibre 900).

With Fibre 900, you’ll get an average download speed of 944Mbps. This makes it up to 24 times faster than standard fibre broadband. With those speeds, you’ll be able to download a HD-quality film in about 36 seconds.

TalkTalk Full Fibre Features

Amazon Eero Router

On TalkTalk’s full fibre service, you’ll get an Amazon eero router included. This helps to maximise the potential of your full fibre connection, delivering super-fast wi-fi to up to 75 devices at the same time.

Unlike most other providers who continue to produce their own proprietary wi-fi routers, TalkTalk has instead decided to partner with Amazon to offer the eero 6 with their full fibre plans. It means you’re able to benefit from the latest Wi-Fi 6 technology, along with mesh capabilities. The Amazon eero router also works with Alexa and can operate as a Zigbee smart home hub to control your compatible smart home devices.

Total Home Wi-Fi

As a full fibre customer, you can add TalkTalk’s Total Home Wi-Fi. This is designed to improve the wi-fi coverage in your home, by using an additional Amazon eero router to create a mesh wi-fi network.

Using mesh technology, your home wi-fi network should be extended to cover a much larger area. This should reduce wi-fi blank spots, whilst also helping you to get better speeds and performance on your wi-fi. According to TalkTalk, a mesh wi-fi system with two eero Pro 6 routers can cover an area up to 4,000 square feet (up to 380 square metres).

Customers with Total Home Wi-Fi can benefit from the ‘Total Home Coverage Promise’. This says you’ll be able to get a download speed of at least 10Mbps in all eligible rooms. If you’re not able to get this, an engineer may be sent to investigate and to improve the wi-fi coverage in your home.

On Full Fibre 150 and Full Fibre 500, you can add Total Home Wi-Fi for an extra £6 per month. Alternatively, customers on Full Fibre 900 will get Total Home Wi-Fi included as standard with their plan.

TalkTalk TV Hub with Android

When you choose TalkTalk’s Full Fibre 150 plan or above, you’ll be able to add the new TalkTalk TV Hub, powered by Android.

The TalkTalk TV Hub plugs into your television and gives you all of your live TV and on-demand players in one place. There’s a built-in 7-day TV guide, along with voice control through the Google Assistant and Chromecast built-in. It also supports more than 10,000 apps for movies, TV shows, books, music, games and more.

The new TalkTalk TV Hub supports 4K (ultra-HD) video and Dolby Atmos surround sound. You can add it to your full fibre plan for an extra £5 per month, plus a one-off setup fee of £25.

For more information about the new TV Hub, see TalkTalk’s website.

Switching to TalkTalk Full Fibre

In the UK, it’s easy switching your broadband provider to TalkTalk.

Start by ordering your TalkTalk full fibre broadband plan online. Once you’ve placed your order, TalkTalk will normally contact your old broadband provider for you to cancel the old service (this is unless you’re a Virgin Media customer, or a customer on another provider that does not use the Openreach network).

On the date that your TalkTalk full fibre service is due to go live, you’ll receive an engineer visit to install the full fibre service in your home. There’s more information about this on TalkTalk’s website.

Please select your current broadband provider below for step-by-step instructions on how to switch to TalkTalk:

  • Well, I wanted to renew my contract with TT on fibre 35 as this was fine for my needs only to be told that this is no longer available and I am being migrated to the full fibre. As a result, I can’t get many of the cheaper broadband deals around because my home has been marked as ‘migrating to FFTP’, the old copper lines aren’t being used anymore. I wish I still had a choice and don’t quite understand why the older lines can’t be used anymore.

    • The copper stuff is outdated, expensive to maintain and they’re ripping it all out. That’s not just TalkTalk, it’s BT, Sky etc. The Fibre 35 might be fine for you, but the upgrade is part of a major infrastructure overhaul over the next 10+ years that’s going to change how the average consumer reaches the internet. You may not like it, but its critical to the success of Britain’s economy, allowing high speeds for Business, Governement, Schools etc.

  • Kevin Thompson said:

    Rang to upgrade to TTFF 900 offered a good deal with mesh. Engineer booked. That was the good news, downhill from then. Engineer never arrived, 10 plus call 2 complaints and 4 emails to the CEO. Told my order failed could not offer FF900, it is available, but can have 500 no mesh for same price. Still battling for a response …. Avoid this company
