The latest Connected Nations Report for England shows:
Access to superfast broadband services continues to increase. Superfast broadband coverage is now at 94% - up from 92% in 2017. In rural areas, 76% of homes and businesses have access to high speed services. 1.5 million premises (6%) now have access to full fibre services.
Around half of homes in England could get faster broadband than they do now.
However, 484,000 homes are still unable to access a decent broadband speed. Whilst this has dropped by over 306,000 since 2017, 2% of homes and businesses in England still can’t access a service delivering 10 Mbit/s download and 1 Mbit/s upload speed. The majority of these remaining homes (around 322,000) are in rural areas. 11% of rural premises in England cannot access a decent broadband speed.
82% of England’s landmass has good 4G coverage from all four mobile operators. Voice services from all operators cover 91% of England’s landmass. Individual operator coverage for 4G is higher, at between 89% and 95% of England’s landmass. 78% of homes and businesses have good indoor 4G coverage from all four operators. However the experience isn’t the same across England - only 42% of properties in rural areas have good 4G coverage from all four mobile operators.
The latest Connected Nations report for Northern Ireland shows:
Superfast broadband (>=30Mbit/s), is now available to 89% of premises in Northern Ireland, three percentage points (pp) higher than last year. Superfast broadband is available to 67% of premises in rural areas, up from 57% last year.
Across Northern Ireland, 95% of premises have access to services that can deliver decent broadband, a broadband connection which provides download speeds of 10Mbit/s or more and upload speed of 1Mbit/s or more. This leaves around 40,000 premises with connections unable to support these speeds, a reduction of around 15,000 premises compared to last year.
The average download speed delivered to premises in Northern Ireland is 43Mbit/s. This has increased from 39Mbit/s in 2017 and reflects increasing availability of faster broadband services.
