UK has 4th best internet connectivity

According to the ITU, the UK is ranked 4th best in the world for internet connectivity http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/news/these-are-the-countries-with-the-best-...
The IDI ratings are done on speed of internet (bandwidth, measured in bits per second), volume of fixed internet subscriptions per 100 people, and percentage of households with a computer, giving the country a score out of 10.
The UK scored 8.75, South  Korea the best at 8.93.

Sounds like a chosen formulae that massages the figures to favour the improbable.

Well  South Korea does have excellently internet in major cities, 1Gbps each way is the common standard.
The UK, well, who knows. The figures do cover how well connected the country is not only how fast those connections are.

Re: UK has 4th best internet connectivity

Those figures should be weighted to include median latency and available bandwidth.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.
