Leading internet service provider (ISP) TalkTalk has been forced to purchase an additional 2,000 square feet of data centre space.
The broadband provider said the popularity of its network services – including fixed broadband and landline – has forced it to invest in extra IT support.
MEN reports that the ISP has acquired extra capacity at UK Grid's Manchester data centre, which prides itself on cost-effectiveness, cleanness and efficiency.
TalkTalk's Graham Chisnall said: "It has been good to work with another north west-based company enabling TalkTalk to expand capacity in the region."
Rob Garbutt, Chief Executive at UK Grid, told the news provider that his firm was delighted to agree the deal with TalkTalk.
"The company is ambitious and is already working hard to increase its services to over four million customers and more than 100,000 businesses," he added.
