The "National Statistics" report released on the 23rd May 2006 shows the true popularity of broadband in the UK.
The statistics revealed that by March 2006 almost 70% (69.2% is the actual figure) of internet connections in the UK are by broadband, with just 30.4% being dial up internet.
If you compare it to the same time last year there was just 49.1% connecting via broadband and 50.1% via dial up. This show there has been a huge shift in the number of people now either changing over from dialup to broadband or new subscribers seeing the huge value that broadband offers over dialup.
The statistics show that on average in each quarter in the last year the number of users connecting to the internet via broadband has been around 5% each quarter and if that rate continues then possibly by the same time next year users connecting to the internet via broadband could well be above 90%.
The ever increasing broadband deals & offers being made available, from providers such as BT Broadband, Talk Talk, Tiscali and broadband seemingly becoming the "norm" in the UK there is nothing to suggest that just about all of the UK will be using broadband within a couple of years.
