BT Group confirmed that its ultrafast broadband (FTTP and Gfast) roll-out has passed 4.2 million premises to date (2.4 million Gfast, 1.8 million FTTP), with FTTP roll-out at around 23,000 premises passed per week. Reported revenue for the six months to 30 September was down 1 percent to GBP 11.47 billion, mainly reflecting the impact of regulation, legacy product declines, and a strategic reduction of low-margin businesses.
