39% of internet use now broadband

The latest report from the communications regulator ComReg has indicated growth in the roll-out of broadband.

The report also shows that there are now 4.4 million mobile phone subscriptions, and in the last quarter users sent a total of 1.5 billion text messages - an increase of more than half a billion on the previous quarter. On average subscribers send around 114 text messages every month.

ComReg says there are more than 370,000 broadband subscriptions, but only 39% of internet users connect to the internet using broadband.
