Fibre-to-the-cabinet broadband connections overtook copper broadband connections for the first time.

There was a 17% increase in consumers upgrading from standard broadband to superfast broadband.

Data use continues to grow, with a monthly average of 240GB per fixed connection and 2.9GB for every mobile data connection, an increase of approximately a quarter on 2018. These increases are mainly due to a rise in consumers viewing online video.
