    17. 18. Fixed broadband coverage in Poland is relatively low, partly explaining the low take-up of broadband (16%, the third lowest in the EU). Nevertheless, household broadband connectivity went up from 51% to 57% in 2010. Some 90% of connected households have a broadband subscription. The proportion of businesses with an internet connection is one of the lowest in the EU, but progress in Poland was the second biggest in EU in 2010 (fixed broadband access increased from 58% to 66%). Wireless Internet markets are catching up, although they are still below the EU average.
