Following the announcement on 8 May that agreement has been reached for TalkTalk Group to acquire Tiscali UK’s operations, TalkTalk has underlined their intention to fully support the channel and wholesale business currently operated by Tiscali UK’s business division.
Charles Dunstone, CEO of TalkTalk Group, says: “Tiscali has extensive wholesale data capabilities and expertise. Working with our business services division Opal, which is a leader in wholesale voice telephony services, Tiscali will bring a significant additional dimension to the group and enable us to further develop the markets for both enterprise networks and white-label ADSL broadband.”
The combination of TalkTalk and Tiscali’s networks will give wholesale partners access to the UK’s largest unbundled local network.
David Goldie, Corporate Development Director of TalkTalk Group, says: “Tiscali is already the largest wholesale data provider after BT. We are committed to an exciting programme of product innovation and development over the next year which will be very attractive to both Opal and Tiscali’s business partners as it will help them to enhance the services offered to their customers.”
