Our customers recognise the significant savings they can make on all four products from TalkTalk. We have the largest unbundled network in the UK, a new long-term mobile access agreement, and one of the broadest ranges of film and TV content, all of which is underpinned by a pro-competition regulatory environment.

We remain confident in our plans for delivering sustainable growth and a more profitable business over the medium term, and remain on track to deliver our FY17 targets."
