The number of super-fast broadband subscribers continues to increase in the UK, according to Point Topic.

New figures from the technology analyst reveal there were 5.615 million fibre broadband customers in Britain at the end of 2013.

This represented 24.6 per cent of the total 22.782 million fixed line connections.

Virgin Media had 3.222 million UK super-fast broadband customers at the end of last year, making it the single largest provider.

The cable specialist claimed a 57.4 per cent market share, meaning more than half of all super-fast broadband lines were delivered by the firm.

BT was next in the chart with 1.885 million customers (33.6 per cent), followed by TalkTalk with 177,000 (3.2 per cent) and Sky with 150,000 (2.7 per cent).

KCOM claimed a 0.1 per cent share of the market with 6,980 super-fast broadband connections, with other broadband providers accounting for the remaining 3.1 per cent.
