Broadband factsheet for Q3/2013 released
We have updated our broadband factsheet to include the latest nuggets of information from the UK broadband scene. In terms of the UK broadband landscape we are now including information on the speeds we are measuring across the various regions of the UK.
There are many who doubt that the UK will ever have decent broadband speeds and we have just updated our projection for the UK average broadband speed in 2015 to reflect changes in the amount of FTTP expected (less than previously expected) and have reduced our projection for Virgin Media launching a 200 Mbps to them only offering a 160 Mbps service in 2015. The side effect of this is that our projection has reduced, with an average speed of 30 Mbps (at peak times). The projection currently relies on the presumption that at some point in 2015 there will be 4.1 million subscribing to a FTTC based service, hitting that level of take-up is possible, particularly now that operators like Sky have started their Toy Story themed Fibretastic promotion of fibre services.
