Rural homes 'lead broadband UK'
Rural households are now more likely to have a broadband connection than residents of towns, says Ofcom.
The regulator's regional communications market report shows that 59% of rural households have broadband compared to 57% of urban homes.
It is the first time that the country has overtaken the town, according to the report.
Four years ago urban dwellers were twice as likely to have broadband as those living in the country.
