Overall, TPG has 516,000 broadband subscribers, compared to 489,000 six months ago. Revenue continues to grow and TPG has revised its yearly guidance upwards to $225-230 million, from $215-225 million.

TPG has focused on organic growth to increase its market share, by attracting new customers with cheap broadband and home phone deals and unlimited plans.
