BT Major Highlights Broadband Growth

Posted: 28th Jul, 2005 By: MarkJ
BT has published its latest set of results to 30th June 2005, showcasing how the UK now has 5.6m wholesale broadband (ADSL) connections. Some 1.94m of that figure belongs to BT Retail's own ISP's (Yahoo! etc.):

Broadband revenue grew by 55 per cent to £161 million. The growth of broadband continues with 1,940,000 BT Retail connections at June 30, 2005, an increase of 11 per cent in the quarter. Net additions of 188,000 resulted in a 28 per cent share of the broadband DSL additions in the quarter. Our programme to upgrade customers to high speed services at no extra cost continues with a further 355,000 BT Business and consumer customers upgraded to speeds up to 2Mbit/s in the quarter.

BT Retail has recently announced its intention to use the Microsoft TV, IPTV Edition software platform to deliver TV over Broadband in the UK. Trials of TV over broadband begin in early 2006 with plans to deliver a commercial service later in the same year. The combination of BT’s 21st Century Network with Microsoft’s best-in-class technology will result in an exciting set of next generation entertainment and communication services available to consumers across the UK.


Much as we've now come to expect from almost all of the leading providers, except Telewest and NTL, there's no mention of the operators dialup (narrowband) Internet access figures.
