TalkTalk Business talks up revenue growth

Talk Talk Business has name checked the channel as one of the main factors driving its revenue growth

TalkTalk Business, the B2B division of TalkTalk, has registered a 5.6% year-on-year increase in revenues and a 38% growth in the sale of business data products, following the release of its preliminary 2013/14 financial results.

TalkTalk Business  is also aiming for growth in the small business sector and recently refreshed its offering with the launch of a business phone and broadband package  for £4.00 per month.

Charles Bligh, managing director, TalkTalk Business said: “Three quarters of successive growth is a wonderful achievement and demand for data shows no sign of letting up. 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," he added.
