Ofcom’s chief executive Ed Richards said that “the increase in the average number of connected devices in UK homes is driving the need for speed” and consumers are adopting faster broadband packages as they are using bandwidth-heavy services.
However, telecoms expert Dominic Baliszewski is critical of progress: “This report will be cold comfort to rural dwellers stuck in ‘digital ghettos’ who are struggling to get more than a few megabits per second.”
“The government’s vision for UK broadband to be fastest in Europe by 2015 is a long way from being realised,” he added.
Moreover, a poll done by ISPreview.co.uk of 782 UK internet users revealed that 71% of respondents felt the government is making poor progress towards improving broadband infrastructure.
