UK ranks poor on broadband

A study of the global state of broadband has put the UK 25th out of 66 countries in terms of the quality and reach of its networks. The research for Cisco found that countries such as Latvia and Bulgaria were better prepared than the UK for next-generation applications.

South Korea and Japan continue to dominate the league table, largely due to their commitment to fast networks. In South Korea, for example, the government has promised universal speeds of up to 1Gbps by 2012.

The study was conducted jointly by Oxford University's Said Business School and Spain's University of Oviedo's Department of Applied Economics. It found that the average download speed globally was 4.75Mbps, while average upload speed was 1.3Mbps.

While most countries, including UK, had adequate speed for todays services, only nine countries, including Japan, Sweden and Latvia, were ready for future demands, such as watching high-definition video. Researchers estimated that countries would need an average download speed of 11.25Mbps and an upload speed of 5Mbps in order to be comfortably placed for future applications.

When not using your Satellite receiver, always select a FTA channel. This will save bandwidth :)
