Is The Housing Crisis Slowing Down The Roll Out Of Broadband

News that four of the top six broadband providers in the UK have seen a fall in demand for broadband connections over the last couple of months is being blamed on the housing crisis. It seems as though a house move is seen by many as the opportune moment to introduce broadband to their lives. However, there is a suspicion that with people looking to make cost savings across the board broadband is seen as more of a luxury than a necessity by many and suffering accordingly.

There has also been a widening of the opportunities available with many people now looking towards mobile broadband as oppose to traditional landline connections. While the trend is taking away some business from the likes of Carphone Warehouse to name but one, more worryingly it is also putting profit margins under pressure as competition intensifies.

While this is only a short term let up in the UK's ever growing broadband revolution there are concerns that some of the small providers may be squeezed by the larger groups. In the long term this would mean fewer players in the market and could severely hamper future competition, to the detriment of the consumer.
