Household broadband access provides a measure of the uptake of broadband technology by households. It refers to the share of households that have purchased subscriptions to fixed-line or mobile broadband services (i.e. with 256 Kbps advertised speed or more) and can be broken-down to compare households in urban and rural locations, or households in different income brackets. Fixed broadband comprises DSL, cable, fibre-to-the-home (FTTH), fibre-to-the-building (FTTB), satellite, terrestrial fixed wireless and other fixed-wired technologies. Mobile broadband connects to networks offering speeds of 256 Kbps or more such as HSPA and LTE networks.
