BT adds 208,000 fibre broadband customers in Q3 to reach 5.5 million

Friday 2 February 2018 | 10:41 CET | News
BT Group saw reported revenue fall 3 percent to GBP 5.97 billion in its fiscal third quarter to 31 December 2017, with underlying revenue down 1.5 percent. Adjusted EBITDA was down 2 percent to GBP 1.83 billion, impacted by investment in mobile devices and customer experience, as well as higher business rates and pension costs, offset partly by cost savings.
