77% of homes have household internet access acording to the O.N.S

The Office for National Statistic (ONS) in a recent report ‘Internet Access – Households and Individuals 2011', indicated that 19 million households in the UK now had an internet connection. This is 77% of households up from 73% in 2010.

Although the growth in household internet connections has grown there are still around 5.7 million households without an internet connection. Reasons cited for this lack of internet connection vary, ranging from the cost of equipment, a lack of skills or just “they do not need the internet”.

Of connected households 93% are using broadband compared to 84% in 2007. There is still some dial up access accounting for 2% of connected households and the remainder is made up of mobile internet connections.
