BT added: "Dido Harding's claim that BT's building a fibre monopoly is also far-fetched. Virgin Media has been building its own superfast broadband network, which covers more than half the UK, for more than a decade providing broadband to over four million households. BT, on the other hand, has been building out its network for just a handful of years, willingly making it available on equal terms to all broadband providers. It's not just BT's consumer division using it, in fact dozens of service providers and over three million households and businesses are now benefitting."
TalkTalk posted both falling revenues and profits for the full year in May, although maintains it is on course for steady business growth. It saw its TV subscriber base grew by 150,000.
