The number of consumers signing up for BT broadband deals increased during the second quarter of the year, it has been reported.
BT attracted an additional 141,000 customers between April and June 2011, meaning it now has 5,832,000 customers in the UK.
However, the firm secured fewer new additions than in each of the two previous quarters.
In the final three months of 2010, BT added 188,000 households to its subscriber base, and between January and March 2011, a further 162,000.
But the number of consumers signing up for the firm's super-fast 40Mb broadband deals increased in Q2 – BT Infinity attracted 71,000 new customers, up 50 per cent on Q1.
BT Chief Executive Ian Livingston said the broadband provider was continuing to make progress towards delivering its financial, operational and growth goals.
"We grew profit before tax by 20 per cent at the same time as investing in the future of the business," he stated.
"Our super-fast broadband network has now passed over five million premises and the customer base has almost trebled in the last six months."
BT is currently investing £2.5 million upgrading its telephony infrastructure to support super-fast fibre broadband.
