Ofcom has released its Telecommunications Market report, showing the state of the UK broadband market.

According to the telecommunications watchdog's data, which covers the second quarter of 2007, the number of residential customers and small businesses with broadband connections in the UK now stands at 14,365,000.

The figures also reveal that BT's overall market share expanded during the period, with its copper wire network now accounting for 3,715,000 of the UK's broadband connections - 25.9 per cent of the total broadband market.

Conversely, Virgin Media's cable network now numbers around 3,192,000 connections.

Also reflected in the figures was the growing trend towards local loop unbundling, with just over 5 million connections noted by Ofcom.

Ispreview said: "Subscribers from both Virgin's cable service and BT Wholesale's third party ISP's have been jumping onto rival LLU based products, no doubt lured in by a mix cheaper prices, bundles and general market acquisition movement."
