UK to pass 250,000 super-fast broadband connections this month
The UK is expected to pass 250,000 high-speed broadband lines this month according to broadband analysis firm Point Topic. The company has projected figures based on December 2010 data to determine that the number of broadband lines with a speed of greater than 25Mbps at the end of March was 236,000, and should exceed 250,000 in April
250,000 is a pretty low number and 25Mbs is very much at the bottom end of HS broadband, of the 250,000 a 146,000 are customers using Virgin Media
So BT's rolout is not as impressive as it makes out.
