Ultrafast broadband within reach of ‘most’ homes

More than half of homes in the UK can now receive a broadband service capable of delivering speeds of more than 300Mbps, Ofcom claims.

Ofcom’s latest figures were compiled in January 2019, and show that access to ultrafast services – made up of a combination of cable-based broadband supplied largely through Virgin Media, Gfast supplied largely through Openreach, and fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband supplied through a mix of Openreach, suppliers such as Hyperoptic, Virgin Media, Vodafone and various altnets – increased by four percentage points compared to September 2018.
