Homes in Glasgow are the least likely to have a broadband connection across the whole of the UK, new research has revealed.

According to Ofcom's fourth Communications Market Report, just 39 per cent of homes in the city have broadband internet.

However, the report also indicated that 60 per cent of Scottish homes now have broadband, which represents a seven per cent increase in the last 12 months.

It also showed that throughout the whole of the UK VoIP is most popular in Aberdeen, while the city also has the highest number of broadband connections in Scotland.

Additionally, mobile broadband was found to be most popular in the Highlands and Islands region.

Commenting on the findings, Vicki Nash, Ofcom's Director in Scotland, said: "Take up of services like broadband and mobile phones [is] increasing rapidly in Scotland with rural areas leading their urban neighbours."
