1.4 mln UK households dropped dial-up in 6 months

Point Topic estimates that over 1.4 mln internet-access homes have dropped dial-up in the last six months, leaving about 2.2 mln relying on it in the UK. Another third will migrate to broadband (or drop home internet access altogether) over the next six months. At this rate consumer dial-up numbers will be down to 1.5 mln by the end of 2007 and 700,000 by the end of 2008.
