UK has 9.6% Gigabit broadband availability

Assuming that all of the Virgin Media cable network in Southampton is now DOCSIS 3.1 capable and thus the Gigabit service is available, combining this with the full fibre footprint across the UK we find the UK is running at 9.64% Gigabit coverage.

We will of course in time add a Gigabit tracker to our stats site, it will essentially boil down to being the total of the full fibre services combined with the Virgin Media footprint. Basically this is our current Ultrafast figure minus G.fast and once the DOCSIS 3.1 roll-out is complete will mirror the Ofcom ultrafast definition of 300 Mbps and faster figures.
