TalkTalk doesn’t have a ‘social tariff’ plan yet, but they do offer free internet connections to jobseekers and those on certain types of benefits. The catch is that you need to apply through JobCentre Plus. You can find your nearest JobCentre here.
Another option is to check for NHS discounts which can sometimes be used on TalkTalk broadband & phone plans.
It is likely that TalkTalk will shortly introduce their full fat social tariff plans – Ofcom have intervened and forced TalkTalk, along with several other broadband providers, to create a social tariff plan. We are waiting for more information on this, but be assured that it seems to be in the pipeline.
Even though TalkTalk don’t provide a discounted broadband plan, many other providers do – compare all social tariff broadband deals here.
