Some 21 million UK households now have an internet connection, with the vast majority taking advantage of broadband services.

Figures published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) reveal that 80 per cent of homes are now online, compared to 77 per cent in 2011.

Some 96 per cent of homes with an internet connection are using broadband services to access the web, as dial-up continues to be phased out.

Of those households with the internet, 30 per cent now use a super-fast broadband cable, the ONS claimed.

But DSL broadband remains the most common way of connecting to the internet.

Of those households without internet access - around 5.2 million in the UK - 54 per cent said they had no current need for access to the web.
