Study links low internet usage to slow broadband

Parts of Britain are being left behind on access to online services, because of slow broadband, research suggests. King’s College London researchers said many of the regions with the worst internet access also used modern services the least. The study compared online logs from half of the country’s population with rates of use of the BBC’s iPlayer. One analyst said it raised questions about rural areas being “deprived of the full benefits of broadband”. According to the study, which was published this week, South Ayrshire, Ards and the Isle of Wight were among the areas where people used iPlayer the least. They also named the East Riding of Yorkshire, North Down and Midlothian as areas of similarly low usage. When they had compared the regional disparities with Ofcom data on broadband speeds, they had found a positive correlation, they said. Similarly, areas that had used iPlayer a lot, such as London, south Gloucestershire and Bristol, had generally benefited from relatively fast broadband speeds. More >>>
