BT Vision Now Boasts An Additional 30,000 Subscribers

BT has added 30,000 new subscribers to its widely popular hybrid DTP+IP TV service, “BT Vision”, according to new reports.

The telecom giant can now boast more than 575,000 subscribers to the five-year-old service.

BT also revealed that the complete BBC iPlayer package is now being introduced to the service, enabling users to enjoy nearly all of the available online TV as well as radio programmes.

Users can access this service from the company through BBC iPlayer application.

BT also revealed that it has surpassed the 144,000 subscription figure for its latest offer 'BT Infinity', a high-speed fibre-based broadband service. It also said that almost 50 percent of the new customers from the areas covered by BT Infinity, are now opting for this new service.

"Our roll out of super-fast broadband is one of the most rapid in the world, passing an average of 80,000 additional premises each week and we have plans to roughly double the speed of our fibre-to-the-cabinet based service in 2012,” BT chief executive Ian Livingston said in a statement.

BT also recently announced a large increase in profits for the last fiscal year driven by job cuts and increased demand, although its revenue dropped slightly.
