£50k TalkTalk investment bringing better broadband to north-east
TalkTalk is set to invest tens of thousands of pounds in bringing faster broadband connectivity to the north-east.

The internet service provider has announced a £50,000 scheme that will see its Next-Generation Network (NGN) coverage expanded to include the community of Frosterley, near Stanhope in County Durham, reports the Northern Echo.

Residents of the hamlet can look forward to receiving faster and more reliable broadband as a result of the project.

It is the latest investment in TalkTalk's NGN in the region, with the nearby communities of Shittlehope, Stanhope, Wolsingham and St John's already benefiting from the rollout.

In the final three months of 2012, the company saw its broadband customer numbers increase by a net total of 10,000 thanks to a strong upturn in its on-network subscriber base.

This marked the first time in three years that TalkTalk's total customer base returned to growth - a result that chief executive Dido Harding described as "an important milestone on our journey to become a growing and more profitable business".
