UK lags in broadband speed study

British consumers are lagging behind when it comes to access to the next generation super fast broadband connectivity. Data released by the Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has placed the UK at number 21 out of 30 countries in terms of broadband speed. The UK ranking is below Greece, France, Portugal and Spain.
The OECD report only placed the UK at number 13 in terms of overall broadband penetration with the majority of UK subscribers still accessing broadband through a Digital Subscriber Line or DSL, rather than via fibre.
Records from the OECD show that one in every 10 subscribers covered by the organisation has Internet access via fibre technology. Japan and Korea lead the number of subscribers with fibre broadband. Sweden, Denmark, Norway and the US are also making significant strides in the area, the report added.
