TalkTalk enjoys second successive quarter of broadband growth
TalkTalk signed up 10,000 new broadband customers in the first three months of 2013, representing the internet service provider's (ISP's) second successive quarter of net additions.

The company's on-network user base grew by 30,000 over the period, with the loss of 34,000 broadband-only customers offset by 64,000 fully unbundled broadband and voice customers joining TalkTalk.

Further declines were recorded in the ISP's off-network base, which saw 20,000 households leave. This left the total number of TalkTalk broadband subscribers at 4.063 million.

More than 95 per cent of its broadband customers are now on the TalkTalk network, while the mix of subscribers has improved, with over four-fifths on fully unbundled lines - and therefore delivering greater earnings for the company.

Dido Harding, TalkTalk's chief executive, said: "[We] remain confident that having more customers who buy more products and who stay with us longer puts us firmly on track to achieve our medium-term financial targets."
