TalkTalk closes acquisition of SSE Phone & Broadband from OVO Energy

17 Oct 2022

TalkTalk Group has completed the purchase of SSE Phone & Broadband from OVO Energy, inheriting approximately 135,000 fixed voice and fixed broadband subscriptions in the process. SSE Phone & Broadband was acquired by OVO Energy in 2020 as part of its purchase of SSE Energy Services from SSE plc, and it has continued to trade under the SSE brand ever since. SSE has given permission for its brand to be used under licence until April 2023 to support a smooth transition to TalkTalk Group.

Tristia Harrison, CEO of TalkTalk Group, said: ‘We are delighted that we can finally welcome SSE Phone & Broadband customers and team to the TalkTalk Group. We are the country’s only scale affordable provider and are experts at providing connectivity to home energy customers, so we are confident our new customers and colleagues will find themselves at home with us.’

TalkTalk previously acquired a number of customers from financially stricken Origin Broadband back in September 2021 and notes: ‘Further acquisitions will follow if the opportunity arises.’
