Total UK Broadband Connections Top 16.2m

Posted: 02nd Oct, 2008 By: MarkJ
Ofcom has released its latest quarterly (Q1-2008) Telecommunications Market Data Tables (.PDF), which includes a breakdown of total small business and residential broadband connections. BT Retail's market share has remained unchanged at 26.5%. The figures break down as follows:

  • BT Retail xDSL (ADSL) - 4,289,000

  • Other xDSL (exc. LLU) - 4,071,000

  • VirginMedia (Cable) - 3,502,000

  • Other inc. (LLU) - 4,336,000
Other xDSL (non-LLU) broadband connections appear to have continued their decline, going from 4.29m during Q4-2007 to 4.07m in Q1-2008. Most of that loss has been picked up by cheaper unbundled (LLU) providers, which increased their share from 3.76m in Q4-2007 to 4.33m at the end of Q1-2008.

It will be interesting to see what the next set of second quarterly results show because the Office of National Statistics (ONS) recently reported a 0.3% decline in new Internet connection for that same period.
