The second quarter and half year results for the BT Group have now been published, and can be read at www.btplc.com.
Some of the key figures for those of us in the broadband world are:
The 21st Century Network is close to going live in the Cardiff area, with the first customers being migrated across at the end of November 2006. The work has involved the installation of nine new fibre rings with a total length of 2100 kilometres. The results mention the recent contract signing by Vodafone with BT Wholesale, but does not reveal any more information other than product details will be announced shortly.
Generally it looks like the BT Group is continuing its transition to a broadband future, with new wave services like broadband and IT services making up 35% of the groups overall business. The Retail arm has seen a dip its share of the market, which continues to show that consumers are becoming more aware that ADSL is available from over 100 broadband providers. Though a lot of this may well be down to the low cost offers from Sky and Carphone Warehouse.
