Broadband use in UK

According to the Office of National Statistics, 35% of UK households do not have internet access.

Some 1.48 million (9%) of UK households which have net access use a dial-up connection despite the fact that most could get broadband if they wanted.

A recent report from consumer group BroadbandChoices found that the cheapest dial-up connection costs £175.89 (AOL Anytime)in the first year compared with £89.97 (TalkTalk) for broadband.

"That's a price difference of nearly 100%," said Michael Phillips, product director of BroadbandChoices.
