You don’t need to stick with us for that long, thought TalkTalk and announced it was decreasing the length of its broadband contracts.
As of yesterday, TalkTalk said that its Essentials and Plus bundles will have a minimum commitment term of one year, which is six months less than the internet service provider’s previous term.
While the change is currently in power – but only until 2011, the policy may or may not change the following year.
The time cut applies not only to broadband contracts but also to those who take up home phone services.
It has been reported that during Q2 (ending on September 30th) 2010-11, TalkTalk has managed to attract an impressive 18,000 of new broadband subscribers.
Currently, TalkTalk is considered to be the second largest ISP in the UK, as the earlier-mentioned addition of subscribers has led the company to have a 4.25 million and counting customer base.
In terms of account holder numbers, TalkTalk managed to squeeze in front of telecommunications giant Virgin Media, yet still slightly lags behind BT which firmly holds its leading position.
