As TalkTalk Group reports its Second Quarter FY2013/14 financial results, TalkTalk Business has revealed continued growing demand for its data and carrier services evidenced by a 1.3% y-o-y growth in H1 in corporate revenues, with acceleration in Q2 (+2.5%).
TalkTalk Business continues to drive innovative product development that leverages TalkTalk’s network capability and builds a strong platform for future market share growth. The operator installed 3,432 Ethernet and EFM lines during the half, bringing its total installed base at the end of the half to over 13,600 lines.
In addition, TalkTalk Business today announced that it now operates the UK’s largest Ethernet-enabled network, offering four times the coverage of BT. The expansion of its network infrastructure has increased the number of Ethernet-enabled exchanges by 35% from 2,199 to 2,980, providing business-grade Ethernet and EFM connectivity to SMEs, larger enterprises and partners. This has helped ensure that TalkTalk Business remains a cost-effective and competitive proposition within a fragmented market.
Charles Bligh, Managing Director of TalkTalk Business said: “In what is still a challenging and shifting climate for British businesses, great value, scalability and flexibility remain fundamental for growth. Operating the UK’s largest Ethernet-enabled network means we’re able to provide organisations across the country with the business-grade connectivity that they need in order to grow, at truly competitive prices.”
