TalkTalk is upgrading its network to offer all of its customers broadband speeds of up to 24Mbps over the next four months, for no extra cost.

The ISP said it is installing gigabit Ethernet fibre between all exchanges, ensuring every new and existing customer will get the fastest speed possible on their line for no extra cost, along with a more consistent service during peak times.

"We are all aware of the frustration that comes from a congested internet. Jittery iPlayer, slow gaming and even web pages take an age to load," said Tristia Clarke from TalkTalk.

TalkTalk said it has invested in its network to remove all backhaul congestion, which is the principle cause of slow internet speeds at peak times. "So whether you want our Essentials package giving you 40GB of downloads a month, or the high-performing, truly unlimited Pro package, you'll get the fastest broadband your line will possibly support at the great price you expect from TalkTalk".

TalkTalk broadband packages start from £6.99 per month excluding line rental.
