BskyB is to acquire UK broadband and fixed line operations from the Spanish telecoms firm Telefonica.

According to the BBC, this will give Sky access to the 500,000 UK customers who use the O2 and BE brands for their home telephones and broadband.

“Sky has been the UK’s fastest-growing broadband and telephony provider since we entered the market six years ago,” said BskyB’s CEO Jeremy Darroch.

“The acquisition of Telefonica UK’s consumer broadband and fixed-line telephony business will help us accelerate this growth.”
