BT has become the first broadband provider in the UK to have five million people signed up to its internet services.

The company has confirmed that Elizabeth Patterson of East Kilbride has helped it reach the landmark figure in terms of broadband subscriptions.

Around 14 million people in the UK are now believed to use broadband services, according to BT, which is thought to be a major rise from the 135,000 subscribers recorded around seven years ago.

John Petter, Managing Director of BT's consumer division, said the technology has "the ability to transform people's lives".

He added: "The fact that we are still showing strong take-up when there are more than 14 million ADSL broadband customers in the UK is testament to the unique benefits of being connected."

BT recently confirmed that it has agreed to supply an advanced communications network in the new MediaCityUK development, which is being built on Manchester's Salford Quays.
