British broadband provider TalkTalk reported a 17% rise in full-year core earnings to 237 million pounds, in line with expectations, as it benefited from lower costs and customers switching to faster fibre products to watch video. Chief Executive Tristia Harrison said simplifying the customer offer over the last two years had strengthened the fundamentals of the business. TalkTalk said a record 152,000 people took its faster fibre products in the final quarter of the year.

The new boss of BT vowed to roll out full-fibre broadband to 15 million homes by the mid-2020s, offering to spearhead Britain's shift to ultrafast networks if the government and regulator make it worth its while. Chief Executive Philip Jansen said the first stage - rolling out fibre to 4 million premises by March 2021 from a previous target of 3 million - could be achieved without cutting the dividend this year. "Our aim is to deliver the best converged network and be the leader in fixed ultrafast and mobile 5G networks," Jansen said on Thursday.
(Reuters) - British energy company SSE Plc has approached companies including broadband provider TalkTalk Telecom Group about a deal to sell its household supply unit, Sky News reported http://bit.ly/2Lm9c2T ...
The FTSE 100 closed up 0.7 percent, posting its best week since December 2016, and the more domestically-focussed FTSE 250 closed 0.5 percent higher, outperforming European stocks. "This week's dovish turn from the Federal Reserve, reinforcing the change of tone from various policymakers through January has helped to increase confidence about the prospect for further gains in the days and weeks ahead," said CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson. Markets got a boost when U.S. President Donald Trump said he would meet Chinese President Xi Jinping soon to try to seal a comprehensive trade deal and the top U.S. negotiator reported "substantial progress" in two days of high-level talks.
TalkTalk shares fell on Friday morning trading after the company warned full-year earnings will take a hit of up to £15m due to rising costs. The telecom group's share price sank nearly 8% to a more than seven-month low, after it said full-year earnings would fall short of expectations due to higher costs from attracting more customers and changes to the timing of when it reports on customer transactions within its accounts. TalkTalk also reported its eighth consecutive quarter of rising customer numbers, but those appear to have come at a high price.

British broadband provider TalkTalk said it would miss full-year earnings expectations due to the cost of acquiring new customers and different accounting standards, sending its shares down by 8 percent on Friday. Chief Executive Tristia Harrison said TalkTalk had nearly reached its 150,000 full-year customer growth target a quarter early and had also had a particularly strong quarter in superfast fibre take-up. Harrison, however, said the customer growth momentum and cost savings, including moving its headquarters from London to Salford in northern England, would drive strong earnings growth in its 2020 financial year.

LONDON, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 19 (Reuters) - Britain's competition watchdog has proposed a crackdown on companies that charge so-called loyalty penalties on a whole range of products including mortgages, insurance and mobile phones, which cost consumers around 4 billion pounds ($5 billion) a year. The Competition and Markets Authority's (CMA) action follows a complaint from consumer body Citizens Advice that companies penalise existing customers by charging them higher prices than new customers. The action by Citizens Advice - dubbed as a "super-complaint" - was launched in September and immediately triggered a comprehensive investigation by the watchdog.
Broadband providers in Britain will have to tell customers about their best deals under planned new rules from telecoms regulator Ofcom aimed at tackling a 'loyalty penalty' that makes it difficult for long-standing customers to get the cheapest package. Ofcom said on Friday it would review broadband companies' pricing practices to examine why some customers paid more than others, and whether vulnerable customers needed extra protections to ensure they got a good deal. Providers include BT (BT.L), Virgin Media (LBTYA.O), Sky and TalkTalk (TALK.L).
