AOL Broadband was a UK internet service provider and part of the TalkTalk Group.[1]


The UK ISP side of AOL was bought by The Carphone Warehouse in October 2006 for $688m (£370m) to take advantage of their 100,000 LLU customers which made The Carphone Warehouse the biggest LLU provider in the UK.[2][3] The deal included an agreement to continue customers access to the AOL portal content.[4]

Services are provided by TalkTalk Group under the AOL Broadband brand.[5]

In April 2013 AOL Broadband was 'rated worst for broadband problems' by Which? Magazine[6]

As of April 2014 AOL Broadband is no longer available for new customers. New customers are directed to the TalkTalk website for broadband packages.
