Britain trails Euro broadband chart

Oh well

When it comes to the adoption of broadband, Britain still trails behind the rest of Europe.

So says research outfit NetValue which found that Denmark tops the European broadband charts with one in four of all households online connecting via broadband.

Like its performance in the World Cup, Germany came second with 15 per cent of households using broadband to access the Internet.

The UK lies in sixth place with broadband accounting for just 6 per cent of Internet connections.

However, recent price cuts in the UK has resulted in broadband usage doubling since December 2001, said NetValue. ®
