Plus VAT as well. There is small text to say VAT excluded, so add 20%.


Stops hanging out the "Welcome to Uno Fibre Pro" bunting.

To answer PhillipD's question, not much - TTB LLU has a £58 setup charge and charges £47 a month on a 24 month contract (prices rounded up)
The small print
4 months cost comparison based on full price of TalkTalk Business' Complete Superpowered fibre (£30.00/month for 24 months plus £16.95/month line rental, £7.99 router delivery charge and 24 months min. term) compared to standard online price of BT Business' Premium Infinity + calls at £48/month for 24 months, plus £21.20/month line rental, plus £8.50/ month for 5 static IP's 24 months min. term, £8.00 hub delivery Price comparison excludes new line installation. All prices are exclusive of VAT and correct at 01.08.16. See legal section for full terms and conditions.

I've dropped Uno Sales a question and asking for a quote, will see what is what with that.


Actually you can get the 'Complete' package for less as TTB are currently offering discounts. The 'Complete' package is for 38 quid p/m for first 12 months (incl line rental + vat) which then goes up to 50 quid from months 12-24, so over the 24 months it works out at roughly 44 quid a month for the 80/20 FTTC service with no download limits. Whilst this is similar in cost to Uno's offering, there are a few major advantages in going direct with TTB on their 'complete package':

1) Seven days top class phone support (Warrington based)

2) You have unlimited calls to UK landline & mobiles from your landline. Of course with mobiles around, not everyone uses their landline heavily these days .However you can use your TTB landline calling plan on your smartphone via their excellent Talk2Go app (ioS and Android) which lets you register up to 5 mobiles and this even works from abroad...obviously you need a data connection. Therefore you can reduce the cost of your mobile plan(s) by getting say a 50 mins p/m plan with majority of your landline/mobile calls outgoing via the TTB app. In our household we average around 8000 mins of calls made per month over the 5 mobiles via the TTB app. Another nifty feature of the TTB app is that you can choose to receive landline calls on your mobile.

3) Up to 4 static IP address available on TTB

On the downside you're locked into a 24 month contract however they will let you leave penalty free if they can't fix a fault within 28 days or if they put up prices during the min contract term. They offer free house moves.

I asked Matt

> As the Talk Surf Fibre is not yet available, is it as simple as adding the Uno phone package, or will it be cheaper once TSF is released.

TSF will likely be cheaper due to the bundled nature but we cannot indicate at this time by how much or when.

> Checking my phone number does not bring up any Fibre Pro offering. Rugby Exchange (CMRUGB) has TT LLU and FTTC.
> Can you please gie me a quote and advise when this will be live at my exchange.

I'd recommend checking again within the next few days. The TTB API appears to not be returning all possible exchanges and they are investigating.

> Do you provide any static IPv6 blocks in addtiion to the static IPv4

Not at the moment but we will in the future, we just cannot give a set date for that.

Hi

Many thanks for the info. We have no phone line in the new property so going TalkTalk business might work out quite a bit cheaper overall as there is no phone line connection charge, plus discounted rates for the first 12 months. If it isn't much different to the UNO offering in terms of performance, whilst I prefer supporting smaller companies, my wallet may take a different view.

Regards

I think when you throw in all available current discounts(including cashback) and the recent rental rise to £16.95+VAT you're probably looking at an average of £47/month over 24 months for fibre Complete.

One thing I'd like to know is why they(TT Business) insist on an engineer install and switch fibre migrations back to ADSL and then to fibre again. TalkTalk residential just switch you over without an engineer, Pulse8 who resell TT Business also just switch you over without switching you back to ADSL - why the necessity for an ADSL reversion?

Not something that is likely to be noticed by the majority - those who use Flat Mode.

I think its just the way TTB's internal system operates. When going from TT Residential ADSL2+ to TTB FTTC, I was first put onto TTB's ADSL2+ service for a week then shifted onto their FTTC service. It wasn't a big deal for me personally as TTB ADSL2+ speeds weren't too bad (~18 mb/s).

As for an Engineer install on TTB, I actually think its a good idea. If you're not getting optimum VDSL2 speeds, it means the Engineer can check your wiring there and then and if possible fix any issues internal or external. In my case the Openreach Engineer even moved my mastersocket to a new location...cost me plenty of tea and choccie biscuits though! On the day my VDSL2 service went live, i did about a trillion speedtests whilst the OR guy was still there, only when i was 100% happy did i let him leave my house smile

I thought of going direct to TTB at the time I was considering Pulse8. When looking for user opinions of the service I found that at least twice TalkTalk had done a purge of customers who they considered were not business, but domestic users. They kicked them off.

Pulse8 have that sorted out now do they? Less than a year ago they were still struggling to get TTB to do FTTC>>FTTC migrations in. Several potential customers woukdn't accept that, including me.

They were(just) offering it when I decided to use them, not sure if it is now standard.
