New figures which show that broadband growth in the UK has slowed are not a cause for concern, one expert has reassured.

David Allen of Tech Watch made the assessment after looking at the latest data from the Deloitte Digital Index, which found that the number of new broadband customers signing up during the third quarter of the year had dropped to 0.5 per cent.

He pointed out the fact that a growth rate of six per cent was forecasted for the year as a whole and that the busy festive period looks set to revive the market.

Mr Allen commented: "These figures will be getting a boost from the festive season that is nearly here,

"This is when items like mobile broadband that are combined with laptops will really take off, and in turn is bound to have an effect on the figures for the next quarter."

Sales of other digital products, including digital radios were also found to have stagnated in the latter part of the year.
