How fast is TalkTalk broadband? TalkTalk’s fastest broadband package is called Faster Fibre Broadband. It offers download speeds of up to 76Mbps, and upload speeds of up to 2Mbps.
The second-fastest Fibre broadband package offered by TalkTalk offers download speeds of up to 38Mbps and upload speeds of up to 2Mbps. The third-fastest broadband package is called Fast Broadband. This is not a Fibre connection, but it still offers a respectable 17Mbps download speed.
With download speeds of up to 76Mpbs, TalkTalk broadband compares favourably to the national average download speed of 23.09Mpbs. However, the reality is that many customers do not see such high download speeds. With a 76Mbps Fibre broadband package, you will likely see download speeds of 30-40Mbps – some way short of the claimed 76Mbps. Because of this, we recommend that you find out the average broadband speeds in your area to get an accurate broadband speed estimate.
All TalkTalk’s broadband packages include unlimited downloads and free HomeSafe security, with access to the TalkTalk TV Store. TalkTalk broadband is generally considered reliable, with a service that’s on par with the likes of Sky and BT in terms of features and value. However, TalkTalk broadband is not the fastest broadband available. The accolade of the UK’s fastest broadband is held by Virgin Media, with some customers reporting download speeds of up to 105.2Mbps.
