TalkTalk has started life as an independent company - and its customers may be excited to hear its future is "brighter than ever".
TalkTalk becomes an independent company
Leading broadband provider TalkTalk has become an independent firm in its own right after separating from its parent company the Carphone Warehouse Group.

"This won't make any difference to our customers - all four million of them - as we've been operating separately from Carphone Warehouse for many months now, in preparation for the formal demerger," revealed chief executive officer Charles Dunstone on the TalkTalk blog.

He went on to state that the move will in fact enable TalkTalk to focus its efforts on providing the best-value broadband on the market.

When TalkTalk was launched, nobody expected it to become Britain's biggest home broadband provider, he suggested.

Mr Dunstone also expressed his gratitude to his former colleagues at the Carphone Warehouse, but added that TalkTalk's future is now "brighter than ever".

Earlier this month, TalkTalk's Alex Hollingdale announced that the broadband provider was removing speed limits on its service, meaning that customers can surf, download and stream data as fast as their line will allow.
