The number of UK consumers subscribing for an Orange fixed broadband line fell again during the third quarter of the year, it has been reported.
Results published by parent company Everything Everywhere revealed that the internet service provider has 795,000 customers at the end of September.
This represented a 21,000 drop on the 816,000 registered customers receiving Orange home broadband services in June, reports ISPreveiw.co.uk.
However, Tom Alexander, Chief Executive Officer of Everything Everywhere, said the company as a whole was performing well since its merger with T-Mobile.
"Despite challenging trading conditions and Everything Everywhere going through a period of transition, we've continued to grow our contract customer base with net additions up 19.6 per cent year-on-year to 185,000," he stated.
"In addition to the significant progress we've already made towards integration, we have continued to focus on our day-to-day business, growing our customer base and maintaining revenues and returning to topline revenue growth."
Orange recently gave up control of its fixed-line broadband network to BT, who it now purchases wholesale services from.
