Tiscali news

Tiscali's broadband subscriber base has passed the two million-mark during the third quarter, the firm has announced.

The Italian-based firm' attained the landmark with the addition of 638,000 new customers since the beginning of 2007.

The firm's performance was boosted by the acquisition of Pipex in a £210 million deal, through which Tiscali inherited its former rival's clients.

However, a less impressive showing was in evidence for the company's Tiscali TV service, which is still languishing on 36,000 customers having launched in September this year.

Take-up for Tiscali TV has been hampered by a series of delays to the roll-out of the service.

A statement from Tiscali said: "The acquisition of Pipex has further strengthened the competitive position of Tiscali in the UK as one of the main integrated telephone operators, with approximately two million broadband customers…[and which is] capable [of] offering its customers internet access, voice and multimedia services."
