BT continued to increase its broadband user base during the third quarter of 2010, latest company figures have revealed.
Some 114,000 new households registered for a BT broadband deal between July and September, up from 96,000 during the previous three-month period.
This means that 5,341,000 homes and businesses in the UK are now subscribing to one of the internet service provider's (ISP) broadband packages.
Ian Livingston, BT's Chief Executive, said the firm had made "significant progress" in improving profitability and cash flow.
He added that this had enabled BT to invest in building the foundations for revenue growth in 2012-13.
"Our fibre rollout has passed three million premises and BT Infinity orders are now running at over 4,000 per week," Mr Livingston commented.
"BT Vision customers now stand at more than half a million, with more developments planned to enhance our offering."
While BT offering wholesale access to its broadband network to other ISPs, some 15 million UK premises now receive broadband over BT's telecoms infrastructure.
