Denmark has the highest broadband penetration in the EU, according to the latest Broadband Scorecard published by the European Competitive Telecommunications Association (ECTA). 64 million people now have broadband access across the 25 EU countries. Overall penetration was 14.1%, up by 5.5 million lines, a 9% increase on the previous quarter. Denmark tops the league with broadband penetration of almost 30%, while at the other end of the scale Ireland has only 8% and Greece just 2%.

"Countries that are performing relatively well such as Denmark and the UK, have taken action to ensure there is choice and competition," says Steen Clausen, managing director of ECTA.

According to ECTA, the gap between the best and worst performers in the EU is widening because progress is slow in the worst performing countries. Clausen says competition among broadband suppliers plays a vital role in broadband penetration. Over the last quarter, UK recorded 15% more broadband subscribers following the launch of a large number of competitive offers. The news was reported by Erhvervsbladet and on the ECTA website.
