TalkTalk to include line rental in advertised internet price

Tuesday 3 May 2016 | 14:43 CET | News
UK ISP TalkTalk has announced that it will be the first major broadband provider to end the practice of separate pricing for line rental and internet service. The operator will offer "all-in pricing" from the autumn for everyone taking a new package and existing customers who sign a new contract, although bills will continue to be itemised. TalkTalk writes that the UK's broadband market has been increasingly characterised by attention-grabbing broadband prices, underpinned by less prominent and more expensive landline charges.
