BT's sales results for 2007 demonstrate that it is still the UK's largest broadband provider.

Results published today indicate that the telecoms provider a 35 per cent market share of all installed DSL and LLU bases during the third quarter of last year.

The company also saw its BT Vision customer subscriptions more than double during the four month period.

Ben Verwaayen, BT chief executive, said: "This has been another solid performance. We have delivered our 23rd consecutive quarter of year-on-year earnings per share growth."

Other key highlights of the report demonstrate a one per cent increase in revenue, which totalled £5,154 million. New wave revenue was also up seven per cent to £2,014 million.

New wave revenue is mainly generated from networked IT services and broadband.

The company also commented on the future direction of its 21CN network, which it states will deliver a wholesale broadband service providing speeds of up to 24 MB.

BT sales figures in other areas have been less impressive, with the company temporarily shelving its Wi-Fi phone project BT Fusion after it attracted just 45,000 UK consumers, the Daily Telegraph reports.
