1,000,000 broadband users in the UK


The UK has now officially one million broadband users. Meanwhile, here in Ireland the number hovers in the low thousands. Why? Because of the price. Getting an ADSL connection in Dublin costs 200 Euro in installation, 200 Euro for the modem, and then 110 Euro a month with a limit on transfers of 3 Gb/month after which (gasp!) you have to pay the excess transfer by the megabyte. No wonder it's not taking off. The consequences of monopolies, again.
