Upgrade to unlimited temporarily?


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I have recently signed up to talktalk on the 40gb package. It is in a holiday home so the cap isnt a problem as the broadband is only used at the weekends. Is it possible that in the summer months when the internet will be used alot more that I could sign up to the unlimited package for 2 months and then downgrade again when they are up or am I tied into it for a year once upgrading?

Cheers

Rory

some one might know 100% but im 95% sure you can switch i signed up for unlimited and then asked to be downgraded to 40GB after 2 moth and they said i could do that no problem if i wanted to but instead did me an offer to just get unlimited at 40gb price (but as i say they said they had no problem changing with no contract change) best bet is phone up and ask first,

Hope this sheds at least a bit of light on the subject

Yes you could do, but why would you want to? There's no need.

TT's FUP allows you to go over the 40GB twice in any 6-month rolling period without charge, so effectively, you could fill yer boots for those 2 months without worrying as long as you know you won't go over again for a while.

See here:
http://help.talktalk.co.uk/app/answers/detail/a_id/1...

Even if you did go over 3 times in 6 months, all that will happen is the download boost (nominally raising you to 80GB limit but actually unlimited) would be added to your account at £5/month and you can remove this after 30 days.

Hope that helps a little.smile
