UK Internet Users Look Forward to Faster DVD Video Downloads

Date: 12/21/2007 7:31:30 PM

British internet users have identified fast downloads of DVDquality videos as the service they most want from nextgeneration broadband networks, according to a recent survey by

Some 61% of respondents rated “downloading DVD quality films in five minutes” as the most interesting application for future broadband services, putting video downloads far ahead of other advanced services like video calls and home surveillance. Only 18% of respondents had actually downloaded videos in the past, however, and those who had done so indicated that it was the online activity they spent the least time on.

“From our results it does appear a little contradictory that respondents rated ‘watching TV’ or downloading films as being the least amount of time spent on the internet in a week and yet when asked which future service would be of most interest rated them as the most popular,” said BroadbandChoices product director, Michael Phillips.

“It could be that current services are not at a high enough standard to warrant utilising video services. If speeds were improved, consumers are more likely to use broadband to watch TV and/or download films,” Phillips speculated.
