Orange Declines to 1.063m ADSL Broadband Subscribers

Posted: 07th Aug, 2008 By: MarkJ
France Telecom, Orange UK's parent company, has issued its latest preliminary half-year results to 30th June 2008, which illuminated the UK groups continued land-line broadband ADSL decline to 1.063m customers.

This compares with 1,107,000 in the previous quarter, which marks the operator’s third consecutive quarterly decrease and is a loss of 44,000 customers during the three month period:

In the United Kingdom, revenues were down 7.7% on a comparable basis. The business environment is marked by the drop in narrowband Internet and portals and, more recently, by the levelling off of the ADSL broadband customer base. There were a total of 1.063 million ADSL accesses at 30 June 2008, a 2.5% decline in relation to 30 June 2007. ADSL accesses sold unbundled from the telephone line were still up sharply, representing 40% of the total number of ADSL accesses at 30 June 2008 compared with 23% a year earlier, a 17 point improvement in one year.

Thankfully all is not lost and the number of UK Mobile Broadband customers has risen to 2.452m, which compares with 2m in the previous quarter. This is a surprising result given the lead that some of their rivals have, especially in price. Full Results.
