Subscribers to TalkTalk could soon benefit from major upgrade work which is taking place across the company's network.
Alex Hollingdale, Director of Product Management at the broadband provider, has revealed in a blog post that it is looking to complete work valued at up to £20 million within the next few months.
One major aspect of the work is the installation of Ethernet fibre cables between exchanges, a move it hopes will bring an end to backhaul congestion problems seen on its services.
Discussing the move, Mr Hollingdale said: "In effect we have built the modern day equivalent of the new M1 motorway (but without the congestion!) from our current 1,800 exchanges around the UK all the way to the internet.
"The biggest broadband network alternative to BT is getting better."
TalkTalk recently confirmed it is now offering broadband speeds of up to 24Mb to both new and existing customers over the next four months.
