TalkTalk Telecom Group plc is a company that provides pay television and Internet access services to businesses and consumers in the United Kingdom. It was founded in 2003 as a subsidiary of Carphone Warehouse and was demerged as a standalone company in March 2010. Its headquarters are in Salford.
Originally, just a provider of fixed line telephone services to consumers, TalkTalk now offers fixed and mobile telephone and broadband services to consumers under the TalkTalk brand, and telephone and broadband services to business customers under the TalkTalk Business brand. Like some other UK broadband providers, TalkTalk has invested in its own exchange infrastructure, known as local-loop-unbundling (LLU), with 92% of its customer base unbundled as of December 2012.
The company was listed on the London Stock Exchange until it was acquired by Toscafund Asset Management in March 2021.
