TalkTalk UK: Post-lockdown challenges and opportunities
TalkTalk started its new financial year with revenue growth declining to -8% in Q1, although this is partly lockdown-related, and costs have also declined as churn plummeted
While backbook pricing continues to be a challenge, new customer pricing continues to firm, which makes its expectation of stable/growing EBITDA for FY2020/21 possible albeit still difficult
The company expects to launch full fibre products from Openreach imminently, and from CityFibre before the end of the year, with the adoption and eventual economics of these crucial to its medium and long-term future


Subscriber base stable in lockdown

ARPU and revenue decline accelerates

Existing customer pricing still under pressure…

…but relief on new customer pricing

Outlook still challenging
