TalkTalk remains committed to driving increased broadband uptake in the UK, it has been claimed.

Kristine Olson, Director of Sales and Loyalty at TalkTalk, said that over the last 12 months, the firm has invested in over 450 local communities to bring them affordable internet access.

She explained that last month, TalkTalk launched a new partnership with Microsoft to provide a best-value computer and broadband package aimed at those who are not currently online.

"It is great that so many more people are benefiting from all the internet has to offer, but the figures show there is still a long way to go," Ms Olson commented.

Official statistics recently revealed that more than 600,000 Britons used the internet for the first time during the last 12 months.

However, there are still more than eight million people who have never gone online.

Ms Olson noted that TalkTalk is one of seven founder partners of Go ON UK, a partnership which aims to bring the benefits of the internet to each individual and organisation in every community across Britain.

She said the firm would continue to promote the benefits of broadband services to people across the UK, encouraging them to make the most of internet services.
