BT Vision remains behind the curve adding just 30,000 subscribers in the first quarter. The additions take the number of subscribers to the telco’s IPTV service to 575,000.
However, BSkyB was able to add another 62,000 customers and Virgin Media 46,600 to its digital TV subscriber base.
Meanwhile, BT is concentrating on the rollout of the BBC iPlayer to its customer base and the introduction of faster HD downloads.
Significantly, broadband additions of 162,000 were the highest for more than eight years, representing a 64% market share of DSL and LLU net additions.
Net additions for the high speed BT Infinity are currently running at an average of around 5,000 per week. The BT Infinity customer base currently stands at 144,000. According to the telco in areas where it is available, almost half of our new broadband customers are now opting for BT Infinity.
