EE news

EE continued to build its home broadband subscriber base during the first quarter of 2015.

The uncertainty surrounding BT's intended takeover - which needs regulatory approval - clearly isn't putting consumers off, as EE registered a 50,000 net gain between January and March.

This took the firm's fixed-line customer base to 884,000 homes and businesses.

EE's rate of growth in Q1 2015 eclipsed that of the previous three quarters.

In Q4 2014 the firm added 41,000 net customers, compared to 18,000 and 30,000 in Q3 2014 and Q2 2014 respectively.

The main focus for EE remains 4G mobile services, but the firm's fixed-line business - which includes fibre broadband - also appears to be thriving.

In terms of 4G, the broadband provider added another 1.7 million subscribers in the first three months of the year.

As such, EE now has a total of 9.3 million 4G customers, with 87 per cent of the UK population able to access the firm's super-fast mobile network from home.

EE says it is on-course to hit its target of 14 million 4G subscribers by the end of the year.
