Sky attracted 118,000 new broadband customers in the three months to June 30th, the group's quarterly financial results have shown.

According to the fiscal report, the broadband supplier's customer base continues to grow - although it was down from the first quarter of 2009, when 130,000 consumers signed up.

The new subscriptions saw Sky's total broadband customer base reach 2.2 million by the mid-point of 2009 and accounted for approximately half of total net additions to UK broadband, according to the company.

Sky's broadband bundle deals also proved popular, with 16 per cent of all its customers now choosing to take TV and telephony deals, as well as their internet connection.

Chief Executive Jeremy Darroch said: "We remain the UK's fastest growing provider of broadband and home phone services.

"Almost one in six customers are choosing to take Sky for TV, broadband and talk and there is plenty of opportunity for further growth ahead."

Meanwhile, TalkTalk confirmed this week that it saw 47,000 new customers in the quarter finishing June 30th.
