TalkTalk Broadband Deals Net 47,000 Brits In Q1
Market leading broadband deals have helped TalkTalk (talktalk.co.uk) add 47,000 net new broadband customers in Q1 2009, according to the company’s latest interim management statement.
Despite overall UK broadband market growth being subdued, the company has successfully grown its total broadband base to 2.85 million customers – and that’s before broadband customers from its recent acquisition of Tiscali UK are included.
Charles Dunstone, Chief Executive Officer of The Carphone Warehouse Group PLC said, “TalkTalk Group is trading well, in line with our expectations. We added 47,000 net new customers to our broadband base and average customer spend is up 5% year-on-year”.
Dunstone continued, “We migrated a further 59,000 customers onto our own network in the quarter and we now have 79% of all our broadband customers on our unbundled network, leveraging the superior economics that it gives us”.
Dunstone also said “TalkTalk’s leading value proposition and strong customer service clearly continue to resonate strongly in today’s marketplace, and churn has declined significantly year-on-year and remains low”.
TalkTalk’s leading broadband and phone deal is the ‘Essentials’ package which offers up to 8Mb broadband plus evening and weekend phone calls for just £6.49 a month. Anytime local phone calls are also included in the package.
