BT attracted 78,000 new customers to its broadband service during the second quarter of 2009, the company's latest financial statement shows.

According to the report, for the three months to June 30th, the group's total broadband base now stands at 4.8 million, through its various brands including PlusNet.

The company claimed that it maintains a market share of 35 per cent of all DSL broadband and LLU-installed connections.

"During the quarter we announced the launch of ADSL2+ to consumer and business markets, more than doubling the broadband speed at no extra cost," it stated in the report.

Meanwhile, the financial data also revealed that 38,000 new customers subscribed to BT Vision, the company's broadband-based on-demand TV service.

In total, BT posted a better-than-expected one per cent rise in revenues to £5.2 billion, up from £5.1 billion for the same period last year.

Earlier this week, BT's Consumer Managing Director John Petter noted that the company is progressing with its efforts to move broadband customers onto its 21st Century Network.
