Wanadoo UK reckons it's about to pass an important milestone tomorrow when it hooks up its 500,000th broadband punter.

Last month the ISP reported that in the year to September the number of broadband punters had mushroomed from 68,000 to 442,000. With new sign-ups swelling this number each day Wanadoo is predicting it will hit the magic 500,000 figure sometime tomorrow.

Much of Wanadoo's success in reaching this target is down to the aggressive pricing of its entry-level broadband service. And with more than two million existing punters, it also has a sizeable customer base that can be used to flog it products to.

Earlier today BT bragged that it had recorded its best three months ever for wholesale broadband connections, racking up 50,000 new xDSL lines a week. BT Retail, which flogs broadband direct to end users, said it had more than 1.28m broadband punters. ®
