UK Broadband 88.4%

Smiley With WingsThe latest figures from National Statistics show that 88.4% of UK Internet users are now on broadband. Only four years ago 81% of users were on dial-up modems and 17% had broadband. So, after years of steady growth, the market has just about hit saturation point. Time somebody offered me a free PC so I can convert to broadband. Windows '98 SE is starting to look a bit creaky. The biggest fly in the ointment is Microsoft's Vista™. Not only has it been mauled by the press, but I don't know anyone who likes it. And you get stuck with it when you buy a new PC. What a put-off!
