Sky reports surge in broadband customer base
Sky has reported adding tens of thousands of new broadband customers as part of its results for the financial year ending June 2010.

Leading bundle provider Sky managed to attract 119,000 consumers to sign up to its broadband services between April and June, taking its total subscriber base to 2,624,000.

This marks an increase of 1,000 on the number of new customers who took out broadband deals with Sky in the corresponding three-month period of 2009.

Of those who have broadband with the company, 883,000 are now receiving their services via its fully unbundled network.

Sky went on to reveal that a fifth of its subscribers now get their TV, broadband and home phone from the provider, up by more than a third year-on-year.

"We continued to see strong demand for our home communications products," the firm commented.

In a test carried out by Ofcom, Sky's up to 10Mb service was found to deliver an average speed of between 3.9 and 4.9Mb/s for the download of a single file during one 24-hour period in May.
