BT Ireland reports 5% rise in third-quarter revenues

4 Feb 2013

Alternative operator BT Ireland has reported a 5% year-on-year increase in sales for its fiscal third quarter ended 31 December 2012, driven by increases in all its areas of operation. The group added that around half of its retail broadband subscribers in Northern Ireland are now hooked up to its fibre network – helping fuel sales. BT is hoping that fibre-based services will counteract declining sales from traditional voice call offerings.

The company, which employs close to 800 people in the Republic of Ireland, provides communications and IT services to the business, public sector and wholesale markets. Its customers include the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, the Department of Social Protection, Bank of Ireland and Ryanair. It also provides wholesale broadband services for Vodafone Ireland’s DSL customers, and most recently concluded a deal with Sky Ireland. Its wholesale division also works with Liberty Global Inc’s UPC Ireland, Huchison Whampoa’s 3 Ireland and Telefonica-backed O2 Ireland.
