Sky Broadband subscribers top 1.199m

BSkyB has released its latest half yearly results to 31st December 2007, revealing a 28% (260,000) growth in broadband subscribers, which brings the new total to an impressive 1,199,000:

Sky Broadband, the UK’s fastest growing broadband provider, added a further 260,000 subscribers during the quarter to reach 1.2 million customers, with around two-thirds of on-net customers choosing a paid-for product.

At the end of the quarter the Group also had an additional 29,000 business and professional broadband customers registered to its UK Online branded service.

Sky Talk had a record quarter of growth with net additions of 236,000, an increase of 54% on the previous quarter’s additions, with 97% of the closing telephony base taking either the Freetime or Unlimited packages.

We should also point out that 54% of the providers broadband customers took the Sky Talk (voice) service, yet less than 10% of their total customer base now takes all three services together (TV, broadband and telephony).
