Ofcom’s latest quarterly Telecoms Market Data Tables Q2 2012 report has revealed that the UK is now home to a total of 21.067 million fixed line home and small business broadband ISP connections (up from 20.91m in Q1-2012), which includes 601,000 superfast fibre optic based services (e.g. FTTC/P).

As usual Ofcom’s official figures (000′s), which are shown below and exclude corporate connections, are 3 months or so behind the latest financial reports from most ISPs (check out of top 10 page for more details on those) but do offer a useful summary of the overall market and recent movements.

The latest data shows that Non-LLU ADSL services, such as those from BTWholesale based broadband ISPs, declined at a slightly faster pace as consumers continued to switch over to cheaper unbundled ‘LLU ADSL’ (e.g. Sky Broadband) or faster fibre optic (BTInfinity etc.) and or Cable (Virgin Media) services instead.

Separately the report found that the UK is home to 33.2 million fixed telephone lines (down from 33.3m in Q1-2012), while the fixed voice market generated £2.1bn in revenues during Q2; that’s down from £2.2bn in Q1.

The total number of active Mobile Broadband subscribers also fell slightly to 4.956 million, while overall mobile revenues increased by 0.5% quarter-on-quarter and the total number of mobile subscribers increased to 81.7 million (up by 0.4% quarter-on-quarter).
