Forty-two per cent of homes in Scotland could access superfast broadband services by March 2012

We estimate that by March 2012 60% of UK homes were able to receive superfast broadband services, up from 53% a year previously; largely as a result of BT‟s ongoing FTTC roll-out (Figure 5.4). Household availability of superfast broadband in rural areas (28%) was less than half of that in urban areas (67%) by March 2012, and across the UK nations the household availability of superfast services was lowest in Wales (34%) and highest in Northern Ireland (94%). In Scotland 42% of homes were able to receive superfast broadband services by March 2012, the second lowest proportion among the UK nations.
