UK Set to Claim Title as Europe's "Most Wired"

According to research from Point Topic, the United Kingdom has now overtaken France as the biggest broadband country in Europe — although the gap is still narrow. However, this is according to estimates by Point Topic which suggest that the UK will have 9.8 million broadband lines by New Year's Day 2006, while France will have 9.7 million. As the chart below shows, in Q305, France still had a slim lead over the UK.

Nevertheless, the report notes that the British broadband market is facing huge changes in 2006, which should stimulate growth further by bringing increased competition and investment.

These changes include the development and proving of processes to support bulk migration of existing DSL customers to "unbundled" telephone lines, the creation of Openreach as a provider of broadband access to all service providers on equal terms, and the expected merger of the UK’s two big cable companies, NTL and Telewest, perhaps followed by the acquistion of Virgin Mobile.
