Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Eight out of ten Net users in the UK know about broadband, according to research published by telecoms regulator Oftel.

It’s an improvement to a year ago, when just five out of ten people knew about broadband. Around 30,000 people a week are signing up to broadband. Oftel estimates that around 1.4m people in the UK now use broadband to access the Net.

The research also found that many people make a link between the provision of broadband and telephony services, with three in ten people choosing their broadband ISP because they also provide telco services.

This will, no doubt, be of interest to the likes of NTL, Telewest and BT. Anyways, there is stacks of stuff in these reports if this is something you're interested in.

For example, the research found that the UK's big three ISPs BT, Freeserve and AOL UK account for six in ten of all Internet connections in the UK.
