Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) has helped more than four million additional premises get access to superfast broadband services in Q1.

In its latest progress report, the body revealed that 4,426,493 extra properties are now able to order a broadband service with speeds exceeding 24Mbps.

Some £550 million of funding from the Department for Communities and Local Government went towards BDUK projects during the first quarter of the year.

This means the overall number of premises covered per million pounds of BDUK expenditure stood at 8,036.

Figures from BDUK also showed that about 92 per cent of UK premises can now access fixed-line superfast broadband connections.

This is expected to reach 95 per cent before the end of this year, while the aim is to hit the 97 per cent mark by 2020.
