Default 4 million UK ADSL users and counting..

BT today announced it has passed the four million wholesale broadband
customer milestone and is connecting a new customer every ten seconds.
The latest million ADSL connections have come in only four months and
BT is now adding an average 8,500 customers a day, seven days a week.

Ben Verwaayen, BT's chief executive said: "We are currently making a
new broadband connection at least every ten seconds, 24 hours a day,
seven days a week. We reached three million ADSL connections in August
of this year, so to have now reached four million well before Christmas
is tremendous news. It shows that the take up rate for broadband is
accelerating apace."

More than 95 per cent of UK homes and businesses can now receive
broadband service and that figure will reach 99.4 per cent by next
summer, putting the UK ahead of any other G7 country in terms of DSL

The four million connections are shared between more than 150 service
providers, including BT's retail operations. There are also an
estimated 1.7 million cable broadband customers in the UK.
