The rate of people switching to “superfast” broadband (connection speed of 20Mbps or higher) in the UK is one of the fastest in Europe, according to a new study by the Broadband Stakeholder Group (BSG).
Currently 6% of households in the UK have switched to a superfast service. Whilst this figure is higher than Spain and Germany who both have 5%, and France at 3%, it is lower than the percentage of households in Sweden, Denmark Portugal and the Netherlands.
The rate at which the UK is embracing speedy broadband is higher than most, however, as its figures have been reached in three years compared to the nine and seven that the broadband has been available in Sweden and Denmark.
The BSG report said growth is affected by many factors, such as quality of networks, and the price of a superfast connection.
