1800 homes in the Rawcliffe, Clifton, Huntington and Groves
areas of York are now able to take advantage of download speeds
reaching up to 940Mb, thanks to TalkTalk's new UFO service. The
Ultrafast, Fibre Optic broadband service, built in partnership with
Sky and City Fibre, is currently being put through its paces by a
number of trialists before becoming more widely available in the
Mr Paterson, one of the trialists in the area,
I'm really excited to be part of this programme. Like most
households, we're doing more and more online. It's not just the
speed that's appealing, knowing that we can all do as much as we
want online at the same time is also a huge advantage.
The service is currently available at the same price as
TalkTalk's standard broadband packages, offering speeds 100 times
faster for around £21.70 month including line rental. Because UFO
is available at no extra cost, TalkTalk claims to be the first and
only UK broadband provider to offer pure fibre broadband all the
way to the home for the same price as standard broadband.
Dido Harding, TalkTalk CEO, said:
Ultra Fibre Optic will truly transform the broadband
experience in York and we've been blown away by the local
support. For such a leap in performance you'd expect to pay
more, but we believe ultrafast broadband should
be available to everyone.
