    The same outfit claims that by 2007 that number will climb to 1.7 Billion...but how do they reach these "milestone" numbers, does anyone know? Are they just wild-assed guesses (WAGs) or are they actually empirically correct?

    Quoting figures compiled by Analysys Consulting for the DTI,
    Oddly the UK is currently ranked ahead of US for broadband competitiveness, and by 2005 Britain is expected to be able to boast the most extensive and competitive broadband market of any G7 nation - so, when will we catch up in the USA?
