According to the latest update from the survey of Internet Service Providers (ISP), broadband connections formed 69.2 per cent of all UK Internet connections in March 2006, up from 65.1 per cent in December 2005.
The index of all connections rose to 107.3 in March 2006 from the base month of March 2005. The index increased by 3.7 per cent between December 2005 and March 2006. Dial-up connections continue to decline and now account for 30.8 per cent of all Internet connections. This is the first update to the Index of Internet connectivity to be published on a quarterly basis. A recent review of the Internet Service Providers Survey recommended that the number of dial-up categories should be reduced, but to retain the differentiation between unmetered and metered types of connection.
