UK fifth in the OECD league table


by David Allen

The statistics released by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) give an idea where the UK is in the broadband state of play on a global scale.

True, the results do not include the likes of Russia and China, but it is still a useful tool to see how the UK is fairing in the global market when it comes to broadband services.

Once again the UK has remained in the fifth place in the broadband market with 17.27 million subscribers at the end the December 2008.

But when it comes to the introduction of fibre broadband, the UK still fails to register on the OECD table, with the leaders being Japan (48%), South Korea (43%), Sweden (20%) and the Slovak Republic (19%) coming in fourth.
