OECD Places UK Broadband 13th

Posted: 20th Oct, 2005 By: MarkJ
The latest global Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) broadband statistics (to June 2005) show the UK as placing 13th in the world. The UK is stated as having 8,095,000 subscribers, just a hair above France's 7,935,900.

Some 30 countries make up the OECD, which reached 137 million broadband subscribers by mid-year 2005, adding 18 million since January. Korea maintains its lead in OECD broadband penetration with 25.5 subscribers per 100 inhabitants.

The strongest per-capita growth over the past 12 months has been in Finland, the Netherlands, Iceland, Norway and the United Kingdom.

The breakdown of broadband technologies in June 2005 is as follows:
- DSL: 61.2%
- Cable modem: 32.0%
- Other technologies: 6.8%, (e.g. fibre optics, LAN, satellite and fixed wireless)


Interestingly the USA sits a place above us in 12th, with a total of 42,645,815 broadband subscribers. However the list is based on penetration (per 100 inhabitants), with the USA having 14.5 per 100 and the UK on 13.5.
