BT hits broadband milestone

3 Sep 2007

BT Retail has announced that it has become the UK’s first broadband supplier to pass the four million customer mark. BT Retail had just 172,000 broadband customers in June 2002 when BT put broadband at the heart of its strategy. The acceleration to four million customers has taken just over five years; the last million customers were added over a ten month period. More than 99.8% of UK homes can access broadband services, according to BT, with more than half of these homes having taken up the service.
