TalkTalk Launches Budget Small Business Broadband Services

TalkTalk has introduced two new budget broadband services aimed at small businesses. Costing from just £4 per month, these new products are said to be designed specifically to match the needs of the UK’s SMEs.

According to the provider, Simply Broadband and Unlimited Broadband will save businesses around £600 per year when compared with similar packages that are currently on the market.

Charles Bligh, TalkTalk Business Managing Director, said: “Every business understands the benefits of fast, reliable business grade broadband, but few realise you don’t have to pay above the odds for it.

“Our goal is to help make British businesses better off.”

Both of these broadband deals include TalkTalk’s new calling app Talk2Go – enabling customers to receive landline calls from their mobile using Wi-Fi.

It is also possible to upgrade these packages to superfast fibre-optic broadband for an additional £15 per month. Small businesses located in one of the 22 Super Connected Cities, including Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Oxford and Bristol, will be eligible to upgrade their broadband to fibre-optic for free using the government’s broadband voucher scheme.

Are small businesses getting the best broadband deals?

Mr Bligh believes many firms are settling for a broadband provider without scouring the market first to find the very best deal for their business.

He said: “If you’re a small business owner and honestly don’t feel that your provider has your best interests at heart; that they understand your needs and are committed to your growth, you are being under-served.

“Our message to small and medium enterprises is clear: there is always a choice, demand more from your broadband provider.”
