3 Big data security analytics techniques

Home Net use in the UK continues to grow apace with more than one million new users hooking up between June and September.

According to Net number crunchers, NetValue, there are now more that 15 million home Net users in the UK - a 53 per cent increase during the last year.

Furthermore, there appears to be little evidence that this growth is showing any signs of slowing down.

This is at odds with research published earlier this week by Oftel which found that the number of UK homes connected to the Net had actually fallen in the three months to August.

Elsewhere, NetValue found that people are spending more time online. Curiously, though, the number of domains visited has fallen from an average of 58 to 44.

The boffins at NetValue reckon this is a sign that Net users are becoming more loyal to a select number of sites. Bless. ®
