There has been a steady increase in the revenue stream of BT still 2016, with the third quarter of 2016 bringing in approximately 6.13 billion British pounds. Since then BT's revenue has remained close to six billion British pounds, except for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020/2021, when the quarterly revenue dropped to 5.25 billion.
