British broadband penetration eclipses US, says British analyst

Posted by From the Web

The Times of London is reporting that British research firm Point Topic states the level of broadband penetration per capita in British households exceeded the level for US households.

A spokesman for Ofcom, the telecoms regulator, said: "Broadband in the UK is proving to be one of the most significant and rapidly growing technologies of recent times."

Analysts said the increasing uptake of broadband in Britain was down to several factors, including more competition, cheaper prices and greater investment by telecoms and internet companies in the technology. More people were also starting to understand the advantages that broadband offered over dial-up services.
