BT top's 4,074,000 broadband subscribers

BT has this morning issued its latest set of results to 30th September 2007, which has seen the groups own 'Retail' broadband subscribers hit the 4,074,000 mark (35% of the total DSL and LLU customer base). The operator also achieved 11.7m wholesale broadband connections (DSL and LLU), including 3.2m local loop unbundled (LLU) lines, an increase of 2.4m year on year.

There were 479,000 connections in the second 'financial' quarter with BT's retail share of those net additions at 178,000, being 37%. BT also included the usual update on its 21CN project, although it's nothing we haven't seen before:

BT will launch next generation broadband services, offering end users broadband at speeds of up to 24Mb during 2008. End user trials of the new service began in the West Midlands with the participation of three communications providers on November 1, 2007. The trials will extend further, leading to a roll out beginning in spring 2008.

Next generation Ethernet services, offering cost-efficient and enhanced high speed data connectivity, will launch later this financial year. In-life service evaluation of 21CN voice services among end users continues in South Wales, part of BT’s preparation to bring 21CN capability to all customers across the UK over the coming years.
