More statistics on broadband in the UK
The National Statistics office has published its figures for May 2004. The use of permanent connections in the UK continues to grow, in fact in the last 12 months it has risen 12.7 points, from 15.1% in May 2003 to 27.8% in May 2004. This means that over a quarter of Internet connections in the UK are a dedicated continuous Internet connection.
The continued drift away from dial-up connections is of little surprise, particularly with new broadband connections running at around 30,000 to 40,000 a week. The question is, will this trend continue on through out 2005, once the number of exchanges getting ADSL starts to tail off?
