Britons have access to some of the cheapest broadband packages in the world, according to new research.

Ofcom has compiled new analysis which sees the price of common household communication services in the UK, including home and mobile phones, broadband and digital TV, compared to other countries.

It was found that the lowest priced deal available to a family subscribing to each of the services was £102, which was 28 per cent lower than the combined price of the same packages in the next cheapest country, Italy.

According to Ed Richards, Chief Executive of Ofcom, the report highlights how consumers in the UK have benefitted from competition in the market.

He added: "Innovation means that the UK is well placed in the take up and availability of digital services."

Earlier this month, research by Ofcom claimed that 35 per cent of consumers in the UK now take broadband, home phone and digital TV services bundled from the same company.
