BT has reported another rise in its retail broadband ISP subscriber base in the fourth quarter of 2012, maintaining an upwards curve of new customers.

The organisation's Q4 financial results reveal that 122,000 more subscribers signed up between October and December, which followed growth of 83,000 in the third quarter of the year.

It means that the company's subscriber base now stands at 6,569,000, with a sixth of these taking advantage of the company's superfast broadband package, BT Infinity.

In the same period, BT Retail saw take-up of its Fibre-to-the-Cabinet and Fibre-to-the-Home services rise by 200,000 – a further rise of 160,000 on the third quarter of 2012.

According to BT, more than 13 million premises across the UK have access to its service, with subscribers totalling 1.25 million when providers such as TalkTalk and Sky, which use BT Wholesale, are taken into account.

BT Chief Executive Ian Livingston said the company intends to become a broadband leader in Europe, driven by its fibre offering.

"More than 13 million premises can access our fibre broadband and we are passing around 100,000 additional premises every week. Take-up is growing strongly with around 1.25 million homes and businesses now enjoying the benefits of faster speeds," he added.
