Openreach is expected to report a surge in fibre broadband connections between October and December 2016.

BT is gearing up to release its Q3 trading data and its infrastructure subsidiary Openreach looks set to be a particular bright spot for the organisation.

Indeed, the number of fibre broadband connections is expected to reach its highest ever level, while BT is also confident the number of missed appointments will have halved year-on-year.

The company added that it anticipates good revenue growth from its consumer-facing businesses, with its overall results set to be "broadly in line with market expectations".

BT's upcoming trading statement could be crucial for the company in light of the continuing debate over the future of Openreach.

Telecoms regulator Ofcom recently ordered BT to legally separate from Openreach, so it is run as a distinct and legally separate company with its own board.
