Sky added another 132,000 customers to its broadband packages in Q4 last year, according to new figures which also reveal the company is well on target to reach its aim of covering 88 per cent of the UK by June this year.

According to the TV, home phone and broadband provider, 132,000 new customers signed up to its fixed line broadband service between October and December, meaning the company's total customer base now stands at 4,235,000.

This follows an increase of 102,000 in the third quarter of 2012 and means Sky now has 2.93 million subscribers to its fully unbundled broadband and phone package.

This is in addition to 1.1 million customers for the shared unbundled platform and 204,000 using the Connect service provided by BT.

The addition of 72 new telephone exchange units in 2012 also means that the company is set to meet its goal of covering 88 per cent of the country by June, noted BSkyB Chief Executive Jeremy Darroch.

He added: "Although we expect the consumer environment in 2013 to remain challenging, we have a strong set of plans for the year ahead."

Mr Darroch said the business is in "good shape" and will aim to consolidate growth across its TV, phone and broadband services as the year progresses.
