Sky has overtaken TalkTalk to become the UK's third biggest broadband provider, based upon number of subscribers.

The firm added a net 102,000 customers during the third quarter of the year, taking its subscriber base to 4,103,000.

By comparison, TalkTalk currently has 4,047,000 broadband customers in the UK.

Sky is now only lagging behind BT and Virgin Media in terms of the number of broadband subscribers.

Jeremy Darroch, Chief Executive of Sky, said the firm had delivered "another good quarterly performance" as it continues to position itself for the long term.

"Our investment in high quality content and innovative services has delivered excellent levels of loyalty and generated good growth in customers and products," he claimed.

"At the same time, we continue to drive improvements in efficiency, reliability and customer service throughout our operations."

Mr Darroch said this approach continues to generate strong financial results with good growth in revenues and earnings.

"Looking forward, whilst we continue to see a challenging consumer environment in the UK and Ireland, we are well positioned to execute our plans for the year," he claimed.
