The Internet Services Providers' Association (ISPA) has welcomed a new Ofcom report stating that broadband speeds are getting faster.

According to the watchdog's Communications Market Report, average residential connection speeds rose from 29Mbps to 36Mbps in 2017.

Figures also showed a 36 per cent increase in data usage, while the take-up of superfast connections has also gone up.

Indeed, the report said 44 per cent of fixed broadband connections now receive download speeds of 30Mbps or more, while eight per cent have an average speed of at least 100Mbps.

ISPA was also "particularly pleased" to note that a diverse mix of technologies are being used to deliver superfast broadband, with a 21 per cent increase in fibre broadband in the year from 2015.

Andrew Glover, Chair of the ISPA council, commented: "We welcome the latest data published by Ofcom which shows an increase in faster broadband services across the UK. 

"These statistics reflect the ongoing work of our members investing in a mix of technologies to deliver superfast broadband and facilitate heightened data usage across the country."
