Huawei passes seven million TalkTalk milestone


Eight-year partnership now averages sales of almost one million Huawei products every year

Huawei has announced that it has shipped more than seven million devices with TalkTalk since the beginning of their partnership in 2006.

The Chinese manufacturer provides a range of routers, Digital TV set-top boxes and handsets to the UK communications provider.

Huawei provides a number of mobile handsets for sale through TalkTalk’s budget MVNO including the Ascend series of smartphones and the MediaPad line of tablets.

Its latest router for TalkTalk customers, the H5633, launched in April, was independently tested as the best in market compared to all other Tier 1 manufacturer’s routers.

Huawei’s also has partnerships with more than 21 service providers across the globe for its set-top TV business. Globally it shipped 11 million set-top boxes last year.

In the UK, the devices are sold under the YouView brand, which provides a number of free-to-air Digital TV channels and on-demand services.
