BBC Blog and Connectivity Scorecard

Darren has included a link to this blog on his blog at BBC tech, so having looked into the Connectivity Scorecard he mentions, here is a response!

As far as business infrastructure, the UK does well when compared to 50 other countries, and we would expect that as far as leased lines etc go. However, we do poorly on consumer infrastructure and as far as 3G and fibre goes. In fact, if you go on to read the PDF, it seems to get worse and worse as far as the UK goes, particularly paras 3.7 and 3.8 which are downright depressing!

Tie this in with the FTTH global rankings, and it all looks less rosy for the UK than is often made out.

EDIT: These stats, which I just found from Point Topic, put us at 19th in the global penetration ranking at the end of Q2 last year.
