According to Ofcom’s Infrastructure Report 2014, the UK is making good progress in the roll-out and take-up of key communications services, but is failing to maintain pace with broadband and mobile availability.
Some people living in urban areas are still putting up with very low broadband speeds, according to an Ofcom study that reveals a varying picture of coverage and take-up across major cities.
The number of people aged 65 and over accessing the internet has risen by more than a quarter in the past year, driven by a three-fold increase in the use of tablet computers to go online, new Ofcom research reveals.
The proportion of superfast connections – those offering headline speeds of 30Mbit/s or more – has risen from 5% in November 2011 to 25% in November 2013.
The decision will mean that airlines and other transport operators could in future use satellite-based technology to offer customers broadband speeds up to 10 times faster than they currently experience.
Superfast broadband is now available to almost three quarters of UK homes, and the number of people using the technology has more than doubled in the last year, Ofcom has revealed.
Ofcom has published a study into disabled consumers’ use of communications services which found that younger disabled people are taking advantage of the benefits of being online.
The use of mobile phones to access the internet has grown faster in Scotland than any other UK nation over the last year, according to Ofcom’s Communications Market Report for Scotland 2013.
