BT added 195,000 fibre broadband subscribers to its customer base during the third quarter of 2013, it has been revealed.

Company accounts for the July to September period reveal the firm saw a 24 per cent increase in BT Infinity subscriptions to 1.7 million.

So with 17 million premises having access to BT's fibre network, one in ten has signed up for a super-fast BT Infinity broadband deal to date.

"The rollout of our fibre broadband network continues at a strong pace," BT stated.

The firm noted that all of its major communications provider customers - those using BT Wholesale services to offer their own branded deals - are now actively marketing and selling fibre.

These include Sky, TalkTalk and Plusnet - all of which offer broadband packages using BT's network infrastructure.

BT explained that Openreach saw the "best ever" quarter for fibre take-up, with 316,000 net connections. This was up 70 per cent year-on-year.

The broadband provider added that it is "making progress" with extending the reach of fibre services to rural areas.

"We have now won 44 regional contracts, supporting the government’s focus on regional fibre broadband, and are already rolling out fibre in 13 of these," BT stated.
