The UK's Broadband Slow Lane [ft.com]
The Digital Britain report, recently launched by Lord Carter, into the UKs broadband and broadcasting future should have left me feeling excited. I see many businesses struggling today and a significant number failing because they cannot access the global market with sufficient speed and effectiveness.

Many living in my vicinity have broadband connections of 1 megabit a second or even lower. You cannot make effective use of the internet at such speeds and you cannot innovate at the pace required by the global market.

This sad state of affairs means the UK is punching well under its weight today, and it will be doing even worse by 2012.

To understand how we got into this position, it is useful to chart technological development in the UK in comparison with the countries leading in this field.

It's great being online in the UK, eh! ;)
