TalkTalk Opens £600 Million in Business Contracts to BT Rivals

  • Wholesale clients make up more than a third of its revenue
  • BT currently provides almost all of the underlying network

TalkTalk Telecom Group Ltd will invite rival networks to provide connectivity for its wholesale business contracts, marking another challenge to former state telecom monopoly BT Group Plc, which currently holds most of the work.

BT’s infrastructure arm provides almost all of the underlying network, but in an effort to inject more competition into the market, Salford, England-based internet service provider TalkTalk is asking BT’s network rivals to step in and make offers against it, according to a spokeswoman.
