Sky becomes UK's favourite broadband, phone and TV provider
Sky has become the UK's largest triple-play provider, with more than 3.2 million homes now taking broadband, digital TV and home phone services from the satellite broadcaster.
In the first three months of 2012, Sky saw record growth for its broadband and talk packages, with a customer switching to one of these deals on average every 18 seconds over the period.
Some 212,000 households signed up for broadband with Sky during the quarter, while the Sky Talk customer base increased by 220,000.
To take the number one spot, Sky surpassed Virgin Media, which had 3.1 million subscribers to its triple bundles at the end of March. Two-thirds of the cable company's customers have chosen triple products.
Just 700,000 homes took all three communications and entertainment services from BT when the telecoms giant released its last set of financial results.
Commenting on the achievement, Sky's chief executive Jeremy Darroch said: "I'm delighted that six years on from launch our customers are still responding in record numbers and that our sustained growth means we're now the nation's favourite TV, broadband and home phone provider."
