The UK has passed a significant Superfast Broadband coverage milestone. Across the nation more than 95 per cent of premises (residential and business) now have access to Superfast Broadband offering 24Mbps download or faster speeds. A report on the news, published by Think Broadband, puts the exact figure at 95.0079 per cent.
The 95 per cent figure isn’t a consistent representation of the broadband speeds in every area of the UK. Some regions such as Epson and Ewell, Tamworth, Worthing and Watford have nearly 99 per cent coverage. Meanwhile, at the sorry end of the table, there are regions that include The City of London (50.3 per cent), the Orkney Islands (66.8 per cent) and Hull (71.7 per cent).
If you look at the 95 per cent milestone (and that more than 19 out of 20 UK homes and businesses can now get >24Mbps speeds), and worry that you are still in the internet connection dark ages, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) has some reassurance to offer. DCMS Secretary of State, Matt Hancock made the following statement:
“Over the last 5 years, the Government’s rollout of superfast broadband has made superfast speeds a reality for more than 4.5 million homes and businesses who would otherwise have missed out. We’ve delivered on our commitment to reach 95 per cent of homes and businesses in the UK, but there’s still more to do in our work building a Britain that’s fit for the future.
We’re reaching thousands more premises every single week, and the next commitment is to making affordable, reliable, high speed broadband a legal right to everyone by 2020.”
The above mentioned legal right stems from the Universal Service Obligation, a promise of high speed broadband (10Mbps or faster) for everyone by 2020.
Meanwhile more and more people should get superfast broadband as fibre and similar super fast connectivity continues to roll out.
Remember, there are more targets to be met ahead of us; the government aim to achieve 97 – 98 per cent superfast broadband coverage sometime in 2019, for example.

It s now 18 days since we were thrashed by Chelsea in what was an inexcusable display by a Newcastle side who were 3-0 down after 17 minutes and it could have been 9 or 10 if Chelsea hadn t taken their foot off the gas once they knew they had all 3 points in the bag. We have seen our players then jet off to the warmth and hospitality of southern Spain for some warm weather training and they had a friendly game against Lillestrom. We won that game 2-1 and we make a point of saying that because we don t get too many opportunities to say that Newcastle won a game this season.
Mike Ashley shelled out 82M but we are still second bottom
Now after 18 days of preparation we have two vital games coming up against Stoke City tonight and then at home to Bournemouth on Saturday and the Cherries are playing well having drawn 0-0 at Watford and beaten Southampton 2-0 at home last night that s their last two games and 4 good points.
They will be a difficult team to beat on Saturday and it will not be an easy game. It will not be an easy game tonight either at Stoke City but we need a win. We need a win to cheer up the many Newcastle fans who cannot quite believe just how bad this season has been.
It s been a complete and utter disaster so far. Especially after owner Mike Ashley decided to shell out some of Newcastle s money in the transfer market and allowed 82M to be spent on eight new players over the last two transfer windows. But we are still second bottom of the league and we need to start winning games if we are to avoid the drop in May.
If ever Newcastle needed a win then it s tonight at Stoke City. Here s hoping. Comments welcome.
