BT benefits most from TalkTalk data breach - Kantar

Thursday 14 July 2016 | 13:49 CET | News
BT, Sky and Virgin Media have all made strong gains in the UK home services market (broadband, fixed landline, paid TV), according to the latest research from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech. BT's market share has increased 7.8 percentage points year-on-year, boosted by strong TV and broadband offerings. The company has almost doubled its share of the paid TV market from 15 percent this time last year. BT also benefited more than anyone else from TalkTalk's data hacking scandal in 2015, with 40 percent of those leaving TalkTalk moving to BT in the months following on from the data breach.
