The UK is net addicted


by David Allen

As expected, it is the Americans who spend more time online than anyone else does in the world, but according to research the UK is catching up, and fast.

These are the findings of the recent Third Annual International Communications Market Report, which looks into the state of the global telecom, internet and TV market, carried out by the regulator Ofcom.

Internet usage has risen the fastest in the UK, where the average time spent online has risen to fourteen hours per week, whereas in the US the average weekly usage is fifteen.

The reason for the increase is being put down to the amount of online services that have been appearing recently such as the BBC’s iPlayer.

This can account for a good part of the increase, but surprisingly the figures for hours watching the TV have not changed all that much.
