The UK now has two million broadband connections, Oftel has announced today, with new connections running at around 35,000 a week.


Oftel doesn't rate 128k services as broadband (there are around 400,000 or so at NTL) but still includes them in figures so that the regulator can be "in line with statistics on broadband connections compiled in other countries".

What nonsense. ®
