Stats Watch

Some interesting statistics have appeared in the media over the past few days.

First of all, broadband growth as the Office for National Statistics reveal that nearly 73% of online homes used broadband in June, up from 54.4% in the same month last year and 18% in 2003. Dial-up, overtaken by broadband last year as the most popular way of accessing the internet, now accounts for about 27% of connections. Figures show 14.3 million homes in the UK - almost 60% - are now online.

Meanwhile, TV viewing is actually increasing, with the average viewer consuming 25 hours and 34 minutes of content a week, up by 11 minutes since 2001. Ofcom say that 84% of 16-24 year olds watch at least a quarter of an hour of telly a week.
