BT has secured 258,000 net additional broadband connections in the first half of the year, the provider has confirmed.

Despite announcing that it would be cutting 10,000 jobs by the end of the year, BT has now increased its market share to 4.6 million customers.

The operator's broadband revenue has now grown by 12 per cent on a year-on-year basis, with the BT Vision IPTV service now boasting over 340,000 customers, rising significantly from 282,000 in the previous quarter.

Commenting on the new figures, BT chief executive Ian Livingston said: "In the maturing broadband market, we remain the UK's number one retail broadband provider with a customer base of 4.6 million.

"We had a total of 13.3 million wholesale broadband connections including 5.1 million local loop unbundled lines."

While consumer broadband sales dropped by four per cent, the average revenue per household went up by £5 to £283.
