Ofcom’s Communications Market Report states that 92% of premises in Greater London were able to receive NGA broadband in June 2014 (Figure 5.4 http://stakeholders.ofcom.org.uk/binaries/research/cmr/cmr14/2014_CMR_Wales.pdf). Superfast broadband coverage data is not currently available at the London borough level. Ofcom does, however, publish a postcode list (currently for 2013) where individual non-NGA postcodes can be identified (http://data.gov.uk/dataset/broadband-coverage).
