There were in excess of 4.8 million Internet users in the territory, gaining access using either dial-up or broadband, by end 2007. The number of broadband subscribers represented about 67% of the total Internet subscriber base, supported by a healthy number of ISPs providing a competitive environment with attractive choice and pricing for subscribers.
