Free Broadband For Job Seekers

Jobseekers can apply for six months of free broadband to help them look for a job.  TalkTalk has partnered with the Department for Work and Pensions to create the offer.

The Salford-based telecoms giant said it will roll out a new voucher scheme giving those looking for work free access to high-quality broadband.  The programme aims to tackle digital exclusion and remove barriers to employment across the UK.

A no-contract voucher grants access to TalkTalk’s Fibre35 broadband, which gives an average speed of 38Mb/s.  The scheme has been launched to all Jobcentre Plus work coaches across the UK, so they can offer the vouchers to jobseekers.

The product’s usage is uncapped, meaning there are no data usage limits.  At the end of the six-month period, customers can choose to roll onto a contract with TalkTalk, or can cancel the service and will incur no additional costs or sign-up fees once it comes to an end.
