PoUK ISP announces move to mobile as well as fixed Internet access
Internet Service Provider Talk Talk has today announced they are broadening their offer to include a new mobile broadband deal for existing customers. Talk Talk were recently spun out of Carphone Warehouse but are now an independent company and are infamous for their ‘broadband is free’ campaign a few years ago where they offered free broadband with a phone line contract and struggles to cope with the unprecedented demand they drove. Since then they have gone on to become a respected ISP with a large share of the UK market.
The move into mobile broadband is a natural extension for the brand and the service will run as an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) on the Vodafone mobile broadband network meaning consumers should get similar mobile broadband coverage and speeds to existing Vodafone mobile broadband customers.
The Talk Talk offer will be available for existing customers only and in future is likely to be part of a ‘triple play’ deal with fixed broadband and a phone line for a set monthly fee. For now it costs £29.99 for the dongle and then £10 a month on a rolling one month contract for 1gb of data allowance. This is similar to other offers on the market but noticeably more expensive than the market leader 3 Mobile Broadband’s one month, one gigabyte deal.
