Broadband now accounts for 43% of all internet connections in the UK, according to the Office for National Statistics.
As of February this year, 43% of internet users had either digital subscriber line, cable modem or leased line broadband connectivity, compared WITH 23.6% in February 2004.
Statistics collected by the ONS from internet service providers show there was a 1.9% year-on-year increase in the number of total active subscriptions to the internet, whether broadband or dial-up, which includes ISDN or unmetered dial-up connections.
The number of dial-up connections continues to fall rapidly, with a 2.8% decrease in dial-up from January to February this year. The number of broadband connections increased from 41% to 43% in the same monthly period.
