Internet Security Threat Report 2014

BT Openworld added around 40,000 new broadband punters to its service in the three months to December, the company (kinda) confirmed today.

At the end of September it had 213,000 broadband subscribers. That figure rose to around 250,000 (BT declined to be more specific) at the end of December - a weekly increase of around 3,100.

By comparison, BT Broadband - the no-frills access-only product from BT Retail - is currently growing by 7,500 a week, more than double take-up of BT Openworld's ADSL service.

A spokesman for BT Openworld said he was happy with the numbers and that its broadband subscriber base continued to grow.

Oh, and then there's this quote from today's Q3 figures: "With effect from January 1, 2003, BT Openworld is under the management responsibility of BT Retail and will report its results as part of BT Retail. This decision reflects the maturity of BT Openworld's services and will allow the realisation of synergies, particularly in administration and back-office costs."

"Maturity of BTopenworld's services"? Pull the other one. So mature it can't publish its user numbers on its own but instead has to roll them into total BT figures. Pah! ®
