Broadband usage is soaring in the UK, but the companies piping it into our homes are still playing catch-up. That's according to Ofcom, which looked into the state of connections across Britain. So how does it all break down? For a start, the average household now uses around 58GB each month (including downloads and uploads), almost double the 30GB of data Brits were moving last year. That increase may have been helped, in part, by an increase in connection speeds. According to the regulator, the UK's average has increased from 18 Mbps to 23 Mbps over the last 12 months. However, that isn't the case for everyone; many Brits are still struggling to get a decent connection in their home.
