The Carphone Warehouse release first Quarter results relating to TalkTalk

Carphone Warehouse give trading results for TalkTalkThe Carphone Warehouse have announced their first quarter trading figures ahead of today’s AGM that takes place at 11am.
The Carphone Warehouse are the operators of TalkTalk, the telecom and broadband provider who this year were the first company to offer "free broadband" in what has caused a major shake up for the pricing of broadband in the UK. The company launched the landmark offer back in April.

The figures released relating to the broadband sector include having 596,000 broadband customers which includes 476,000 applications for the free broadband as of the 26th July 2006.
402,000 of the applications are now live to receive calls and 247,000 live on broadband too.
They have also managed to unbundle 303 exchanges for their own telecom & broadband services which is ahead of schedule plus there are another 215 exchanges that have been made available by Openreach ready to be unbundled.

The TalkTalk offer has proved a huge success and the demand for the service was far greater than the company had expected, which resulted in customers having to wait longer than expected for connections and also for telephone support. The Carphone Warehouse has been trying to sort out these problems by recruiting more staff to help with the demand.

The full statement and figures for the Carphone Warehouse can be read here.
