Ofcom's Communication Infrastructure Report 2012 stated that current generation broadband is available in close to 100% of premises in the UK. Ofcom estimated that 1.3% of UK premises were in potential broadband notspots (1.7% in Scotland), but noted that where broadband is not available via fixed access networks, customers may have access via other technologies such as satellite and mobile services or local community schemes. Take-up—as opposed to availability—of fixed access broadband was 63.7% in Glasgow, 66.9% in Scotland and 71% in the UK. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport has made no additional estimate to Ofcom's of the number of pensioners or people from low income backgrounds with access to the internet.
