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.
