Across the UK, more than 20% of homes can now access full-fibre broadband, according to data from Connected Nations and Ofcom.
At the beginning of 2021 over six million homes (one in five!) could receive fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband – an increase of 3% on 2020. While this percentage doesn’t sound much, remember, we have been in extremely strange times for the past eighteen months, and fibre broadband is still a relatively new technology, so we at Broadway Broadband think this is actually pretty good!
This rise is being driven by the increasing availability of fibre networks across the country – including in previously overlooked rural areas where altnets (like us!) are having a huge impact – as the older, unreliable copper networks start to be phased out from mid-2021.
As part of the UK Government pledge to deliver gigabit capable connections across the country, Ofcom has also shown that 37% of homes can access this service – an increase of 10% on the same quarter last year.
All of this is good news for those of us who have been working, socialising, and schooling from home for the past year. And Broadway believe that, even as the world begins to open up, we can open up the world to you.
