Ofcom have today published telecommunications market data for the period Q1 2009. Ofcom publish figures quarterly that show details on number of lines, SMS and call volumes and a snippet of information on Broadband.

The numbers reported by Ofcom do not segregate out mobile broadband services so it's unclear how mobile broadband is growing and whether this is taking any significant share from the fixed-line market. Total broadband connections were recorded at 17.557 million, a bit under Point Topic's recorded 17.661m in their Q1 2009 world broadband statistics report.
An OTA2 update also released today for August 2009 reveals unbundled broadband lines are now at 6.06m which helps to show the growth in the market since March 09.
