BTopenworld - BT's mass market ISP - continues to lose money in spite of seeing a massive jump in income.

Publishing full year prelims it reported that turnover for the year jumped 59 per cent from £140 million to £222 million.

However, the ISP still made an EBITDA (earnings before interest, etc) loss of £102 million, a £96 million (48 per cent) improvement on the year before.

"Subscriber and revenue growth continue to result in economies of scale and overheads continue to be reduced," it said. ®.
