The UK's broadband market enjoys excellent cross-platform competition, with comprehensive DSL complemented by cable networks which reach about half of all households. The DSL network has been upgraded during the last few years as a result of BT's migration to its new 21CN. Virgin Media, now owned by Liberty Global, has emerged as the best provider in terms of realised speeds the company has rolled out a 120Mb/s service across much of its footprint. In addition, BT's FttC/VDSL service should cover 66% of the population by 2015.

The market remains fiercely competitive as a result of regulatory measures to provide competitor access to BT's exchanges, while similar measures have been undertaken to ensure equal access on fibre networks.
