Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Not to be outdone by BT's recent announcement that it now has notched up 500,000 ADSL connections, Telewest has announced it's now connected its 250,000th cable broadband punter.

Not that it's bragging, of course, but the cableco points out that one in ten of those punters has opted for its 1 Mb/s service which was launched across all of Telewest's franchise areas in June.

In a deliberate dig at BT's ADSL record, Gavin Patterson, MD of Telewest Broadband, said: "ADSL connections have recently hit half a million, but this makes our achievements all the more impressive, when you consider that [BT's] figure represents the combined efforts of over 100 companies and includes both business and residential customers." ®
