Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Brits use their broadband connection for accessing smut, according to research from US-based software outfit SupportSoft. Since this outfit has spent time and money interviewing 349 European broadband users as part of its survey then it must be true.

Four in ten Italians said their top use for broadband was for business. Just two in ten said they used it for adult entertainment. Brits, on the other hand, can't get enough of it with four in ten saying high-speed access is great for a virtual grope.

Other European countries use broadband for shopping, music and video downloads. How we ever managed to survive without this nonsense is beyond me. ®
