OFCOM Reports Longer Surfing Hours

Posted: 12th Aug, 2004 By: MarkJ
OFCOM's annual Communications Market 2004 report has found that the average time spent online has increased from 2 hours per week (dialup) in 1999 to a whopping 16 (broadband) during 2004!

We've summarised some related (Internet access and use) stats below:

- Residential customer spending on fixed, mobile and internet services increased by £1.3 billion in 2003.

- Broadband services are currently available to 88.7 per cent of households and take-up is growing rapidly.

- There are now almost 50,000 new broadband subscribers every week (DSL and cable), up from around 40,000 additions a week in late 2003.

- The total number of UK broadband subscribers is now similar to the number in France and Germany.

- Ofcom estimates that the 5 million broadband subscriber milestone will be passed in mid-September 2004.

- More than one-third of internet households now have a broadband connection.

- Dial-up numbers are declining more slowly than the increase in broadband connections; more consumers with no prior internet connection are going straight to broadband for their first experience of being online at home.
