According to the internet service provider, 250GB of general IP traffic travels across its infrastructure every second, rising to 460GB at peak times.
The company's equipment is now installed at almost 2,300 broadband exchanges - three times more than BT's 21st Century Network and twice as many as Cable and Wireless - and covers 93 per cent of the population.
Clive Dorsman, managing director of TalkTalk Technology, predicted that demand for fast and affordable broadband is set to increase over the coming years through the popularity of new services such as YouView.
Backed by TalkTalk and BT, YouView offers customers subscription-free access to more than 100 digital TV and radio stations, plus catch-up services from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5.
The first YouView set-top boxes went on sale on Thursday (July 26th 2012) at retail partners such as Argos, Comet and John Lewis, priced at £299.
