Latest ISP Stats Show Dialup Decline
By: MarkJ - 19 January, 2005 (12:59 PM)

The Office of National Statistics (ONS) has once again updated its ISP stats, this time covering the 12 month period to November 2004. Much as expected, broadband continues to increase while dialup declines:

The latest monthly update to the survey of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) shows that between November 2003 and November 2004 there was a 4.1% increase in the number of active subscriptions to the Internet.

The market share for permanent connections continued to increase in November and now accounts for 37.7% (36% in October 2004) of all connections. This compares with a market share of 20.9% a year before.

There was a year on year increase of 87.8 per cent for subscriptions for permanent connections. Dial-up Internet connections continued to decrease, with a year on year fall to November 2004 of 18%. The decrease from October to November 2004 was 2.5%.

The increase in the market share for permanent connections reflects the continuing move from slower dial-up connections to the quicker broadband, cable and leased line technologies.

Dial-up still dominates the overall number of subscriptions, despite its share dropping to 62.3% of all subscriptions in November 2004.
