WASHINGTON, July 26, 2010 – According to a study released last week by Strategy Analytics, the United States ranks 23rd in its development of broadband infrastructure. It places one spot beneath the United Kingdom, which recently pushed back its goal of universal access to 2015 citing funding concerns, with smaller countries such as Lithuania and Singapore ranking several spots above it.

The study uses the same methodology as Strategy Analytics’ “Broadband Composite Index,” which looks at multiple factors in the development of broadband. These include household penetration, speed, affordability, value for money, and urbanicity. According to Ben Piper, Director of the Strategy Analytics Multiplay Market Dynamics service and the report’s author, “The traditional single metric approach of looking at broadband is becoming less relevant. We feel confident that our multifactor index is a superior indicator of a country’s relative broadband advancement.”
