BT: Resilient, with improving prospects

9 November 2021

BT had a resilient Q2, beating consensus expectations with revenue growth improving and EBITDA only just declining despite a very tough comparable, and it reiterated its guidance for the full year.

Solid operation trends, strong cost control and inflation-linked price increases leave the company (and ourselves) extremely confident in prospects for next year.

Full fibre roll-out is also going well, with reduced costs and Sky/TalkTalk signing up to a pricing offer which will lead to accelerated adoption from next quarter, and an increasing unlikelihood of them signing up with others.
