Fibre-optic broadband rankings

According to the body that monitors households with fibre-optic connections, the FTTH (Fibre to the Home) Council, Europe is still lagging behind other countries.
The council holds a ranking list on which countries are placed when a minimum level of 1% is reached. The U.K. has still not reached this worldwide ranking table, according to an article on the TechWeek Europe website. Those countries that have recently made the list are Canada and Malaysia. The European Union has a target‘to ensure that more than 50 per cent of the European households will use broadband connections of 100Mbit/s or more in 2020.” In the U.K. the government has a target to roll out ‘Europe’s best superfast broadband network by 2015’. Countries in Europe already on the ranking list are Lithuania with 28% of households linked to FTTH, Norway (15%) and Sweden (14%).
