Daily internet users in Great Britain 2006-2018 44.1 million people used the internet daily in Great Britain during 2018 according to the United Kingdom’s (UK) Office for National Statistics (ONS), breaking the record set in 2016. There were 41.8 million daily internet users in Great Britain during 2016, the first time the amount had exceeded 40 million.
Internet access in the UK

While the vast majority of households in the UK are able to go online, one in ten households was without an internet connection as of 2018, according to the ONS. Eurostat estimate the figure to be higher, at 95 percent of households with an internet connection, above the EU average of 89 percent.

Methods of accessing the internet

In a survey conducted during early 2018, Ofcom found that 48 percent of the 2,392 respondents indicated that their smartphone was the most important device they use to access the internet, at home or elsewhere. Mobile internet usage penetration is indeed high in the UK compared to the EU average, however, as of August 2018, desktop searches still accounted for the majority of activity for search engines in the UK.
