Between April and June, the telecoms giant welcomed 85,000 new broadband customers, which is a slight reduction on the 121,000 recorded in Q1, but still edges the company closer to the 8 million count.

Overall, BT's broadband growth represented 57% of broadband market net additions ;ast qurter, while the company also added 100,000 mobile customers after re-entering the mobile market in March.

BT group's quarterly revenue currently stands at £4.3 billion, which is down from the £4.6 billion seen in Q1, while reported profits before tax have fallen sharply from £842 in the first quarter to £632 million in Q2.

It follows a period of significant investment, which has seen the company shell out almost £900 million to gain exclusive rights to the UEFA Champions League and Europa League next season - a move that has resulted in the launch of a new dedicated TV platform, BT Sport Europe.
