New figures from Ofcom show that over 50% of British adults now have broadband access at home (from 39% in 2006), writes Netimperative. Over 13m UK homes and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) now have broadband services, up from 9.9m in 2006 and 330,000 in 2001. 23% of those without internet access at home expect to connect in the coming year with 76% saying they will go for broadband services. Bundled services are also growing in popularity: at the end of 2006 40% of all UK adults with home broadband services also took other communications services from the same provider. The report also found that the average broadband connection speed has risen from 1.6 Mbit/s in 2005 to 3.8 Mbit/s in 2006. In February 2007 21% of British adults owned a Wi-Fi enabled laptop, one third of whom had used public Wi-Fi services.
