UK broadband and telephony trends: spring 2011
In this presentation we show our analysis of trends in UK broadband and telephony to March 2011, based on the published results of the major service providers. This quarter’s edition includes an updated outlook for broadband market subscribers and market shares to 2015.
Highlights in the quarter included broadband market growth moving back into line with consumer confidence, continuing strong broadband subscriber growth at both BT Retail and Sky, greater stability in the proportion of the market served by BT Wholesale and a significant price increase at O2. We project that, by the end of 2015, about 21 million households will subscribe to fixed broadband, and that Sky’s market share will exceed that of TalkTalk Group to rival that of Virgin Media.
