At the end of 2011 92% of UK homes were connected to an LLU-enabled BT exchange, a three percentage point increase on a year previously. LLU roll-out has historically been concentrated in exchange areas serving a large number of premises (which tend to be in urban areas) and as a result of this the proportion of homes connected to an LLU-enabled local exchange is much higher in urban areas (99%) than in rural ones (64%). Scotland had the second lowest proportion of households connected to an LLU-enabled exchange at the end of 2011, at 84%; across the other UK nations this proportion ranged from 79% in Northern Ireland to 93% in England.At the end of 2011 92% of UK homes were connected to an LLU-enabled BT exchange, a three percentage point increase on a year previously.
