As part of last week's merged Everything Everywhere
UK) Q3-2010 results it was also revealed that the group had a total of 795,000 fixed line internet customers
. Since T-Mobile
doesn't offer fixed line broadband ISP services that means Orange
has declined from having 816,000 (-21,000) in the previous quarter.
Tom Alexander, CEO of Everything Everywhere, said:
"Despite challenging trading conditions and Everything Everywhere going through a period of transition, we’ve continued to grow our contract customer base with net additions up 19.6% year on year to 185,000. In addition to the significant progress we’ve already made towards integration, we have continued to focus on our day-to-day business, growing our customer base and maintaining revenues and returning to topline revenue growth."
It's certainly been a busy year for Orange, which began 2010 by unceremoniously handing control of its fixed line broadband ISP network over to BT
) and ended with a T-Mobile
merger. Since then it's also revamped its Home Broadband packages, although so far none of these efforts appear to be turning their fixed line internet fortunes around.
