TalkTalk Launching 80Mbps Broadband
TalkTalk have announced that they're going to launch a new 80Mbps fiber-optic broadband service. Within the next few weeks (whatever that means), some TalkTalk customers will be able to get 80Mbps rather than the BT-maximum of 40Mbps, which is nice.
If you're interested, you're urged to register to receive the improved download service.
This upgrade will boost upload speeds up to 20Mbps and will cost £15 extra per month (that's to get a FTTC upgrade from a TalkTalk standard package to the 80Mbps service).
BT Openreach, who are the network providing the platform for TalkTalk's new service, said "FTTC currently delivers up to 40Mbps downstream and up to 10Mbps upstream. The rough doubling of these speeds marks a significant milestone in BT's development of the technology and is expected to deliver a significant boost to households and businesses within BT's fibre footprint."
Broadband is going to be so fast soon, that it'll melt your hands when you use it. Or something.
