TalkTalk continued to build its customer base during the first quarter of the year, adding another 47,000 net broadband customers between January and March.

At the end of Q1 2015, TalkTalk had a total of 4.283 million broadband subscribers, up from 4.236 million at the turn of the year.

The company's growth rate rose sharply during the three-month period - in the two previous quarters TalkTalk added 15,000 net subscribers.

Another 83,000 households are now taking TalkTalk fibre broadband, meaning 479,000 now receive super-fast services.

This was slightly down on the 88,000 customers who signed up for fibre broadband in Q4 2014.

Dido Harding, Chief Executive Officer of TalkTalk, explained that her company performed well during Q1 2014, delivering its "strongest ever" quarterly revenue growth - at six per cent - and its lowest ever level of churn.

"British consumers and businesses increasingly appreciate TalkTalk’s value-for-money products, and we are focused on improving our customers’ experience still further and growing our already flourishing quad-play business," she stated.

"We believe firmly that competition will drive the innovation and investment that Britain needs in this essential infrastructure."

With this in mind, Ms Harding issued a plea to the regulatory bodies currently reviewing telecoms mergers - including the Competition and Markets Authority - and industry structure - namely Ofcom - to put strong competition at the heart of their decisions.

She has been an outspoken critic of BT in the past, accusing the broadband provider of attempting to form a fibre broadband monopoly.

TalkTalk, which uses BT's wholesale network to deliver broadband services, wants to see infrastructure division Openreach spun off from the rest of the BT Group.
