You are now in a rapidly declining minority. By the end of the year you will be an endangered species!

More and more people in the UK are jumping on the internet's fast lane, official figures show.
Broadband now accounts for 64% of all net connections in the UK, according to figures for December released by the Office of National Statistics (ONS).

Dial-up appears to be in terminal decline, with connections down by a third compared with last year.

The growth of broadband is been fuelled by its widespread availability and competitive prices.

Broadband has always been much faster than dialup (that hasn't changed), so it has to be something other than speed alone, so I guess that it has to be price and accepability, plus the dramatic increase in computer/internet usage, particularly for online shopping, people don't like to wait for their shopping cart to checkout :).

Fraid I'm stuck with dial up until you can take broadband on the road.
