Data Demand Sparks TTB Growth

Charles Bligh

TalkTalk Group’s preliminary FY2013/14 financial results have revealed impressive growth for TalkTalk Business, the Group’s B2B division. Overall Corporate revenues for the year grew 5.6 per cent year on year, a key driver of which was a 38 per cent increase in revenue from business data products.

In addition to its well-performing direct business, the provider’s already strong Partner channel also continued to grow throughout FY13/14. A five-year contract with Fujitsu, for example, led to the migration of 103,000 Post Office customers onto the TalkTalk network in Q3. Partnerships such as these are testament to TalkTalk Business’ ability to partner with the channel, where partners demand quality, flexibility and sustained margins, without undue complexity.

“Three quarters of successive growth is a wonderful achievement and demand for data shows no sign of letting up”, said Charles Bligh, managing director of TalkTalk Business. “As we continue to grow, our strategy is clear. We will continue to provide our customers and partners with simple, value for money products, that leverage the scale and capability of the TalkTalk network, while simultaneously developing new and innovative products that deliver both value for money for our customers and long-term growth for the business.”
