Everything you need to know about the Post Office

The Post Office is state owned, and far from delivering letters now offers broadband and phone services through the TalkTalk network.

Until 2017 Post Office only sold standard ADSL broadband offering maximum speeds of 17Mbps. Fibre services were added in August 2017.

The Post Office bought out collapsed ISP Fuel Broadband in August 2017, taking on around 60,000 customers.

Fair warning, Post Office landline phone services have consistently negative reviews from Ofcom and its broadband services are reported to have lower-than-expected speeds.

The Post Office sells ADSL up to 17Mbps as Unlimited Broadband.


Inclusive weekend calls come as standard. You can add Evening Calls for £3 a month or Anytime Calls for £8 a month.


No SIM Only or contract plans available as of November 2017.

Business broadband

No Post Office business broadband as of November 2017.

Fibre broadband

The Post Office started selling fibre broadband in August 2017. A limited-speed 38Mbps fibre service and the other 76Mbps fibre are available with £30 set-up fees up front. Both come with free weekend calls and a free WiFi router.
