UK Broadband faster and nearly ubiquitous
But overall internet penetration is disappointing
A stats story. In the UK nearly 80% of internet connections are now broadband. At the same time, broadband speeds are increasing. Download bandwidth now averages 2Mbit/s.
All good if you’re actually on the internet, but overall internet penetration is low – fewer than 60% of households have a net connection. Far more households have digital TV, around 80% I think at the last count.
