Competition driving broadband in UK: report

Broadband services in the UK are among the best in Europe, with enthusiastic consumers benefiting from some of the lowest prices, according to an Ofcom report.

The regulator's "broadband scorecard" shows the UK generally performs well among the five major European economies, ranking between third and first on all measures of coverage, take-up, usage, price and choice.

The scorecard was proposed by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

It allows the Government to measure progress towards its ambition that the UK should have the best superfast broadband network of any major European country by 2015.
