After more than five years of subscriber attrition, Orange's home broadband service has returned to growth.

The company increased its subscriber base by 1,000 during the second quarter of 2012, from 713,000 to 714,000.

Orange had been losing customers since the third quarter of 2007, when the firm had 1,142,000 home broadband subscribers.

But the return to growth has raised hopes that the broadband provider can regain some of the ground it has lost in recent years.

Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive of Everything Everywhere - Orange's UK parent company - said the firm had delivered a "solid commercial performance" in the first half of 2012.

He said that Orange has witnessed good underlying revenue growth.

"We are making strong progress integrating the legacy Orange and T-Mobile businesses to create cost efficiencies and deliver planned synergy targets," Mr Swantee stated.

And at the same time, Everything Everywhere is investing in "significant network upgrades" to further improve its customer experience, he stated.

As of this month, T-Mobile customers signing up for an Orange home broadband deal qualify for a 50 per cent discount on internet and home phone services.
