Sky signs up 102,000 new broadband customers in Q3
Sky recorded another strong quarter for its home communications services in the three months to September 30th 2012, with its broadband and home phone products enjoying growth.

Combined, Sky's broadband, telephony and line rental products attracted 367,000 new subscribers during the three-month period, with 102,000 households choosing to take their internet connection from the satellite broadcaster.

Some 4.1 million subscribers are now signed up to broadband from Sky, up from just over four million in the previous quarter and 3.5 million at the same point in 2011.

Jeremy Darroch, Sky's chief executive, hailed the pay TV giant's start to the 2012-13 financial year, in which it continued to "position the business for the long term".

This year has already seen Sky's bundled communications and entertainment services performing strongly.

In May, the company was confirmed as the UK's most popular digital TV, home phone and broadband provider, with more than 3.2 million homes choosing to take triple-play services from Sky.
