You can now get superfast ‘business-grade broadband’ at home – and people are loving it

When it comes to home broadband, nobody wants a dead line when there’s a deadline to meet; to crash out of a videocall meeting while everyone else is still connected, or have the picture and sound constantly breaking up.

And even if you don’t have a hectic household, there can still be times when it feels like your broadband is working against you, not for you.

TalkTalk’s Homeworker package gives you an additional dedicated fibre broadband line which helps you work uninterrupted, no matter what else is happening in your house.

Having a dedicated broadband line can also help you to work more effectively at home – and you don’t need to be an existing TalkTalk customer to get one.

Priced at £26.95 a month – fixed for 24 months – the Homeworker package is your own dedicated broadband line, so you can get on with your job without interruptions, regardless of what else is going on in your home.

Available to anyone, no matter who their current supplier is, the superfast fibre package is easy to set up and provides average speeds of 67Mb/s.

With a dedicated second broadband line installed, the package offers business-grade broadband and support with a UK-based call centre, online live chat and an online support centre providing help seven days a week, 365 days a year.

With many of us working from home at the moment, achieving a work/life balance is key.

One way to do that is to have a home work space – with research from TalkTalk finding those with a dedicated workspace feel happier and more comfortable*.

When Charles, a commercial director at a nuclear decommissioning site in the north of England, started working from home, he often found he couldn’t get online because his kids were taking up the bandwidth with their computer games and movie streaming.

He explains: “One day I had a meeting with Government officials about securing a large amount of funding and I couldn’t connect. I ended up having do it through my 4G. I needed additional connectivity.”

Charles says TalkTalk’s Homeworker package has put an end to that uncertainty. He adds: “I’m no longer worried that video calls will cut out, freeze or I’ll lose connection, and now work pays for the additional line.”

Homeworker is available to all
