Broadband Tops 88% of UK Connections

Posted: 21st Nov, 2007 By: MarkJ
The Office of National Statistics (ONS) has released its latest quarterly UK Internet Connectivity report to the end of September 2007. Broadband now accounts for 88.4% of all Internet connections compared with 86.1% in June and 83.6% in March 2007.

Overall Internet connections increased marginally by 1.5%, meanwhile Dialup connections have continued their decline as users migrate over to broadband, accounting for 11.6% of all connections, down from 13.9% in June 2007.

The report also keeps track of average "ADVERTISED" broadband speeds, which doesn't reflect the true performance received by customers:

As the proportion of slower speed connections has decreased, the proportion of higher speed connections has increased. In September 2007, 49.2 per cent of connections had a speed greater than 2 Mbps, which is an increase from 47.2 per cent in June 2007 and 37.5 per cent in December 2006. Over the same period, the percentage of connections with a speed of less than or equal to 2 Mbps decreased to 50.8 per cent in September 2007, down from 52.8 per cent in June 2007 and 62 per cent in December 2006.
