Factset - Is it used in every IB? (UK)

Do all the BBs such as GS/MS/JP/BofA/Citi... use Factset for comps (excel plug in) or is there any bank from this list that uses Bloomberg / Eikon / CapIQ?  

 

Is it the same for banks such as Nomura / HSBC / BNP?

 

And if there is any bank using the other providers, is there any particular reason or is it price the main issue?  French Hardo Pan European Monkey

We use factset for comps and additionally SNL (CapIQ specific tool) for O&G data at IB M&A

Barely no use of BBG, sometimes for some specific data but factset provides us mostly everything we need
