UK consumers are getting more value out of their broadband deals than anyone else in Europe, a new study has suggested.

Digital analyst comScore looked at the number of hours spent online during September 2011, and found that UK citizens were the heaviest web users.

People in the UK spent an average of 35.6 hours on the internet during the month, compared to 27.2 in France and 24.4 in Germany.

The Dutch were the second heaviest web users in terms of time spent online, racking up an average of 33.4 hours, with Turkey (32.2) in third.

Austrian (14.4 hours), Italian (18.5) and Swiss (18.7) citizens were found to be the lightest broadband users out of the 18 European nations surveyed.

The European average was 26.4 hours, slightly up on the global average of 24.0.

Russia weighed in with the highest number of unique users (50.8 million), ahead of Germany (50.1 million) and France (42.3 million).
