TalkTalk releases two new broadband packages for small business
“Simply Broadband” deal offers unlimited broadband for £4 a month
Telecoms provider TalkTalk today announced the launch of two new broadband deals targeted at small businesses, including an unlimited broadband package for £4 a month.
The two packages, Simply Broadband and Unlimited Broadband, are tailored to the needs of small business users, and TalkTalk said the deals represent a significant saving compared to the equivalent BT broadband packages.
Simply Broadband will offer unlimited-use broadband for £4 a month, which TalkTalk claimed would provide a saving of £594 a year in comparison to the equivalent BT package.
Complete Broadband includes calls, and will cost £10.50 a month – TalkTalk claimed small business users could save £964 over 24 months in comparison to BT.
Both packages will include a new calling app, Talk2Go, which works on WiFi or mobile data (both 3G and 4G), enabling users to make calls via the app which are then billed against a customer’s landline package.
Additionally, the Talk2Go app offers free app-to-app voice calls over WiFi between five designated users of the app, which could conceivably be the founder and four employees.
The app’s Follow Me service means landline calls can be picked up on the mobile when travelling in the UK or abroad. And using WiFi to make or receive calls from abroad ensures customers will be charged at the local UK rate.
The packages can be upgraded to super-fast fibre broadband for an extra £15 per month, and businesses based in one of the 22 “SuperConnected Cities” may be able to upgrade for free under the government’s Connection Voucher scheme.
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 to help make British businesses better off.
“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.”
