UK News - New Report On UK Net Requirements Released
« on: October 01, 2009, 12:42:09 am »
New report states that UK are lagging 25th in the world rankings for proposed updates.

A global study of broadband puts the UK 25th out of 66 countries in terms of the quality of its broadband networks.
The research, conducted on behalf of Cisco, set out to offer a comprehensive view of the state of global broadband.

It also found that countries such as Latvia and Bulgaria were better prepared than the UK for next-generation net applications.
Korea and Japan continue to dominate the league table, largely due to their commitment to fast networks.
In Korea, for example, the government has promised universal speeds of up to 1Gbps (gigabit per second) by 2012.

Despite not being ready for future applications, the UK was well placed to cope with today's network demands, the study found.


I suppose the fact that Cisco would supply much of the equipment needed to deal with the increase in traffic speeds is here nor there  :/

Sounds like a clever move to release this report at this time as it coincides with the governments own drive to extract money from phone subscribers to pay for the upgrades the networks will need very shortly if the internet uptake rate continues to grow as it has in most other countries.
