BT Heralds Big Consumer Quarter
Leading UK telco BT Group reported a 3% year-on-year increase in revenue for the quarter ending December 31 to 4.59 billion UK pounds (6.6 billion US dollars). “BT Consumer had a standout quarter, increasing its overall line base for the first time in well over a decade and capturing 71% of new broadband customers," noted Gavin Patterson, BT's CEO. "Good customer growth in broadband, TV and mobile helped to grow ARPU by 7%. Customers like what we’re offering, whether that’s superfast broadband, Champions League football or mobile data bundles. BT Global Services also did well with good revenue growth in continental Europe and Asia." source: BT statement
