Broadband takeup in Australia is on the increase, according to a report released by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) this week.
According to the ACCC's 'Snapshot of Broadband Deployment', the take up of broadband services had now passed the 1.8 million mark.
Ed Willett, a commissioner at the ACCC, said the report showed that as at the end of March 2005 there were 1,839,700 broadband services connected across Australia.
"This represents an increase of over one million customers, or 122 percent, over the preceding 12-month period," Willet said.
"ADSL remains the primary area of growth with near to a quarter of a million new services connected in the March quarter."
