O2 broadband breaks quarter million mark in first year
Telefonica who own O2 has published its Q3 results which show that at least for O2, the broadband market is not shrinking. They added 72,870 new customers in the quarter which is an increase of 16% on the 62,800 added in the second quarter.
From a standing start a year ago O2 now has 267,090 broadband customers, which while impressive still leaves them around three quarters of a million customers short of Orange. To put the broadband numbers into focus you only have to look at how many mobile customers O2 has in the UK which is 19.1 million.
