Interim Financial Results

Interim Financial Results

The message from TalkTalk’s Chief Executive Dido Harding at this year’s interim results announcement was clear: TalkTalk has had a solid start to the year, with TalkTalk Business in particular going from strength to strength. Over the last six months, TalkTalk Group recorded profits of £130m, up 44% year-on-year, with flat revenue and decreasing customer churn.

TalkTalk Business cemented its position as one of the UK’s fastest growing B2B telecoms provider, with overall growth of 10.6%, driven by a 38.9% increase in data revenues and a 30.9% increase in carrier revenues.

So far this year, we have reported 4200 new Ethernet connection lines on our next-generation network that covers 95% of the country, and enjoyed large contract wins including Marston Telecoms and Global 4 Communications.

One of our strongest areas for growth followed our acquisition of tIPicall in April 2015, as our Next Generation Voice portfolio (SIP and Hosted Voice) continues to see substantial development. In the last six months, 94 Partners have started to sell our SIP proposition, and the total number of channels has increased by 47%. We have also seen a 22% increase in our hosted telephony platform user base.

Charles Bligh, Managing Director TalkTalk Business, Technology and Security, comments: “TalkTalk Business customers expect an easy to deal with Partner that can deliver brilliant service across all our offerings. The past six months have been strong, with data revenues up 38.9%. We are continuing to deliver next generation voice services such as SIP, strengthening our next generation network and building on the success of MyNet with our Partners.”
