Levels of broadband coverage have reached 99.2 per cent in the Greater London area, it has been reported.

Figures published by Ofcom reveal that almost every home and business in the capital can now access the internet via a broadband connection.

The communications regulator found that 100 per cent of semi-urban premises have access, along with 99.3 per cent of urban regions, and 87.4 per cent of those based in rural areas.

Ofcom found that Greater London is the best connected of the UK regions, with the national average standing at 95.3 per cent.

The north-west of England was found to have the second-best coverage (96.3 per cent), ahead of the West Midlands (96.1 per cent).

At the other end of the scale, the largely rural east of England (94.0 per cent) still has the greatest scope for improvement.

The government is aiming to ensure all UK homes and businesses have access to broadband speeds of at least 2Mb by 2015.
