TalkTalk added another 15,000 net broadband customers between July and September - the firm's strongest organic growth in four years.

The broadband provider continued on an upward curve during Q3 2014 - the second quarter of TalkTalk's financial year - as another 67,000 households upgraded to fibre broadband and 115,000 embraced its YouView-based TV service.

TalkTalk has now attracted a total 300,000 customers over the last two quarters, with 1.2 million homes currently taking TalkTalk TV - 33 per cent of the total subscriber base.

The firm says its YouView offering "strongly appeals" to family households and Freeview upgraders who wish to take a small amount of additional content on a flexible basis.

Tristia Harrison, Managing Director of Consumer at TalkTalk, said that with more families looking to save money on household bills, many are turning to the company for their essential communications services.

"We have the fastest growing TV service in the UK as our flexible, affordable YouView TV offering attracts families who want to pay a little for more content, not a lot," she stated.

"We are equally excited about the growth we are also seeing in broadband and mobile, and hope that our best-value broadband, TV and mobile packages can help make more families across Britain better off."

Dido Harding, Chief Executive of TalkTalk, said the company made "strong financial and operational progress" in the first half of 2014-15.

She explained that profits rose by 45 per cent over the last two quarters, with operating cashflow up by 120 per cent.

Ms Harding claimed that TalkTalk is "ideally placed" as the market moves to quad-play bundling of fixed phone and broadband, TV and mobile.

"A third of our customers now take phone, broadband and TV from us, nine per cent take mobile and we recently announced that mobile will now come as standard for all Plus TV customers," she noted.

"This, coupled with our work to continually improve our customers’ experience, has again helped us to reduce churn, which fell to 1.4 per cent from 1.7 per cent a year ago."

Ms Harding said TalkTalk expects to deliver revenue growth of at least four per cent over 2014-15, as customer growth accelerates in the second half of the financial year.
