TalkTalk continued to add to its broadband user base during the first three months of 2013, it has been revealed.

The TV, home phone and broadband provider made 10,000 net additions during Q1 2013, taking the total to 4.063 million.

Some 21,000 households signed up for a fibre broadband deal with TalkTalk, meaning the firm now has 73,000 super-fast internet users.

TalkTalk's YouView-based TV service also proved popular during Q1 2013 - attracting 150,000 customers at a rate of 12,000 per week.

Some 230,000 homes now have access to TalkTalk TV, up from 80,000 at the end of last year.

TalkTalk offers a free YouView set-top box - which ordinarily retail at £299- to consumers signing up for its TalkTalk Plus TV broadband deal.

And this offer may have helped increase uptake - TalkTalk Plus TV saw 68,000 net additions between January and March 2013.

Dido Harding, Chief Executive at the broadband provider, said TalkTalk had enjoyed "a momentous year".

She claimed the firm is "a fundamentally better business than it was three years ago".

"In the year we have returned our customer base to growth, successfully launched TV and mobile handsets, grown TalkTalk Business, and returned to year-on-year revenue growth in the quarter," Ms Harding stated.

"We have the UK’s fastest growing new TV business and our customers clearly appreciate its comprehensive content and value for money pricing."

She said TalkTalk will continue to invest in growth in the months and years to come.

"[We] remain confident that having more customers who buy more products and who stay with us longer puts us firmly on track to achieve our medium term financial targets," Ms Harding noted.
