The broadband market is in good shape and is holding up well in the face of the current economic downturn, according to new research.
Broadband analysis group Point Topic has released a report which goes against predictions made my some ISPs.
Point Topic's figures show that there are approximately 16,736,000 broadband lines in the UK, which is more than 225,000 more than predictions at the end of 2007.
However, broadband growth did not meet expectations, although this was explained by chief analyst Tim Johnson.
"The reasons for the drop are simple," he said. "The number of dial-up homes ripe for migration to broadband is rapidly dwindling
"There are barely a million of them left now and they are an increasingly resistant minority," he added.
This comes after the list of the top ten ISPs and broadband providers was released, which revealed that the number of people using mobile broadband is increasing.
