  • Hi Helen
    this is a fab set of data - any indication of the possible reasons for the way the UK took top spot since 2007? [Aside from an obvious chance to plug UK Online's role?]

  • just think how many more we could get online if only the third of the uk currently excluded by long line lengths could get a connection. wow. Time to lay some fibre to the final third. Millions have connectivty that is not fit for purpose these days. eg. dial up or sub 1megabit adsl. These are disenfranchised. Time to think out of the box. Time to get a lifeline to these people. Time to lay fibre. Its cheaper than copper...
