Over half of European Union citizens can now access broadband speeds of more than 30Mbps, according to the EU’s latest ‘digital scorecard’.
According to the latest survey, 54% of EU citizens now can access 30Mbps broadband or above.
Thirty-six per cent of people have access to the internet via a portable computer or other mobile device, with access via mobile phones rising from 7% in 2008 to 27% in 2012. 4G mobile services are now available to 26% of the population.
The EU is falling short of its targets for very high-speed broadband penetration, with only 2% of homes currently subscribing to 100Mbps services and above. The EU set a target of 50% penetration by 2020.
About 22% of EU citizens have yet to use the internet, while 70% use it regularly at least once a week, up from 67% last year.
