Fixed broadband penetration in the United Kingdom (UK) 2009-2018 This statistic illustrates fixed broadband penetration in the United Kingdom (UK) from 2009 to 2018. The penetration rate has risen steadily over the years. In 2018, the penetration level was at 80 percent. The internet became accessible to the world in 1991, however, broadband didn't become available until the early 2000s. Broadband brought consumers advantages such as: improved connection strength, being able to use the internet without disturbing the fixed-telephone service, and of course broadband is faster.
Broadband speeds have also been increasing year over year. In November 2015, the average residential broadband speed in the UK was 28.9 Mbit/s.
Superfast broadband is receiving hundreds of millions of British pounds of funding each month. This has resulted in a steady growth of premises with superfast broadband service availability. Fiber to the premise (FTTP) is also increasing its presence, and it is forecasted that a total of 6.5 percent of UK households will have coverage by 2020.
