October update on state of UK broadband coverage across the UK and regions

October update on state of broadband coverage across the UK and regions

The roll-outs of superfast, ultrafast and full fibre broadband continue and as the table shows the bulk of the activity is in those parts of the UK that have the lowest levels of superfast coverage.

The UK has some 1.4 million premises without access to superfast broadband and as broadband at decent speeds becomes ever more important to people it is no surprise that those who have sat and watched the roll-outs but have not had any improvements yet are increasingly vocal. The UK Governments 95% target is currently 300,826 premises short of its target and just a few months left now.

Scotland has hit an interesting figure, it has 95% of premises with access to a 10 Mbps or faster connection and if another 50,481 premises can be pushed to 15 Mbps or better the 95% with access to high speed broadband target can be crossed off.

The 96% target figure in Wales is still somewhat woolly, if the definition is any DOCSIS,FTTP,FTTC service then it is sat at 96.1%, more likely a 10 Mbps or 15 Mbps qualifier will be applied, and for those the Superfast Cymru project is 0.4% and 1.5% shy of those respective targets. The Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) roll-out is very apparent in Wales and there is still lots marked down as ready for service by end of 2017, we've not tallied up those waiting but a ballpark estimate would be another 20,000 to 30,000 premises are due.
