British broadband provider TalkTalk has said it is ‘ramping up’ its full fibre expansion programme as part of its commitment to invest in the UK’s latest broadband technology, while confirming that five million premises are now able to connect to its plans based on fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) technology. Announcing the coverage milestone, TalkTalk noted that locations where its ‘Future Fibre’ tariffs – which offer downlink speeds of up to 500Mbps – are available, include: Manchester, Derby, Glasgow, Leicester, Leeds, Bournemouth, Harrogate, Stirling, Ipswich, Coventry, Derby, Inverness, Cambridge, Renfrewshire and Harrogate.
Commenting, Jonathan Kini, Managing Director of TalkTalk Direct Business and Consumer, said: ‘We believe fast, affordable, full fibre broadband should be accessible to all. This has been brought into even sharper focus by the pandemic. We’re thrilled that people across the UK are able to benefit from the UK’s latest technology thanks to our new Future Fibre packages.’
