Some 11 million UK homes scan now sign up for a BT Infinity broadband deal, the company has revealed.

BT is continuing to roll out super-fast fibre broadband services across the UK, as part of a £2.5 billion investment in its network infrastructure.

Another one million households now have the option of a BT fibre broadband deal compared to the first quarter of the year, reports ISPreview.co.uk.

At the end of Q1 2012, ten million homes were within reach of a fibre-enabled telephone exchange, BT noted.

With BT's super-fast broadband coverage continuing to increase, the firm has gained a greater share of the UK fibre broadband market.

The firm added 150,000 BT Infinity subscribers during the second quarter of the year, taking the firm's total to over 700,000.

This comes after a 131,000 rise in Q1 2012 and a 95,000 jump between October and December 2011.

Ian Livingston, BTs Chief Executive, said the company's strong financial performance is enabling it to continue investing in network enhancements.

"BT engineers are rolling out fibre at pace bringing fibre broadband to over two million more homes and businesses in the quarter and it's now available to over 11 million premises," he stated.

"Our investment plans are creating around 2,000 jobs in 2012 by recruiting engineers to support our fibre plans and opening four new UK call centres."

Mr Livingston said BT continues to make "good progress" with its investments in faster growing economies, delivering telecoms services to more homes and businesses.
