The UK is leading the way in uptake of digital services in Europe, with broadband no exception.
This is the conclusion made by Ofcom's International Communications Market Report, which highlighted monthly mobile broadband dongle sales in excess of 163,000 in July 2008.
It was found that the UK is second only to the US in terms of time spent online each week - with Brits surfing the net for an average of 14 hours over a seven-day period.
Commenting on the figures, James Parker, manager of mobiles and broadband at comparison site moneysupermarket.com, said that the statistics showed Britain's digital market is thriving.
He told vnunet: "The latest report from Ofcom shows just how much appetite there is for new technology. With the UK leading most of Europe in the take-up of digital TV, mobile and broadband, the market has become good value for the consumer."
Fixed-line was found to be the fastest-growing broadband market in the UK, despite slowing in recent times.
