(a) Dial-up and broadband figures are collected by advertised download speeds, therefore these data may not equal figures reported for type of access connections. This is due to some broadband connections being reported as less than 256kbps and some dial-up connections being reported as higher than 256kbps.
(b) The categories '8Mbps to less than 24Mbps' and '24Mbps or greater' have been combined in order to make estimates available for publication where possible.
