‘Still a long way to go’ – comment from uSwitch.com on Ofcom’s Connected Nations report revealing three million UK home now have full fibre

Dani Warner, broadband expert at uSwitch.com, says: “Getting full-fibre broadband to three million UK homes is a step in the right direction, but there’s still a long way to go before it will be available nationwide.

“We are waiting to see concrete plans for how the government is going to achieve its goal of full-fibre for all, but striking the right balance between rolling it out quickly and keeping the cost to consumers down will be the real challenge.

“While Ofcom reports that 95% of the country can access superfast broadband, only 54% of consumers are currently using a fibre connection.

“Most of the nine million consumers stuck on ADSL broadband could upgrade to a superfast connection by switching providers, and if they are out of contract, they will be saving money too.

“uSwitch.com will soon be the first in the industry to let consumers to see exactly what broadband services and speeds are available to their home, making comparing and finding the right broadband service even easier.”
