LONDON (Reuters) - British broadband company TalkTalk <TALK.L> added 24,000 customers in its second quarter, taking its customer base to 4.2 million and helping first-half core earnings rise to 101 million pounds from 75 million pounds a year ago.

The company also said it was abandoning an earlier plan to build full-fibre networks with investor M&G Prudential, and would instead roll out fibre to up to 60,000 homes in Harrogate, Knaresborough and Ripon in Yorkshire, northern England.
