BT Group revenue growth disappointed at the reported level, dropping from -6% to -9%, but adjusting for a series of one-offs underlying growth only dropped from -3.2% to -3.6%, easily made up for by another quarter of strong cost reductions Broadband net adds were again a little weak, with weather-related repairs slowing new line installations, but BT’s share held up well, at least against its fellow DSL operators Fibre-based connections continued to grow and BT further accelerated its build-out plans, with this (and not TV) holding the key to stabilising ARPU and increasing wholesale revenue in the years ahead
