- We’ve changed how we’ve organised rural statistics and updated the content following Lord Cameron’s review of rural proofing.
- The 2014 Broadband speed data have been reissued as a result of a minor revision to the analysis. The average speed results were unaffected in all cases except for rural town and fringe in a sparse setting and rural villages, where the average speeds increased by 1Mbit/s compared with the previously reported figures.
- The latest rural broadband average speeds have been published.
- OFCOM average broadband speeds in 2012 by rural urban definition.
