    Broadband users in 30 of the world's most developed countries are getting greatly differing speeds and prices, according to a report.
    The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) report says 60% of its member countries net users are now on broadband.

    The report said countries that had switched to fibre networks had the best speeds at the lowest prices.

    In Japan net users have 100Mbps lines, 10 times higher than the OECD average.

    Japan's price for broadband per megabit per second is the lowest in the OECD at $0.22 (0.11p), said the report. The most expensive is Turkey at $81.13 (£40.56).

    In the US, the cheapest megabit per second broadband connection is $3.18 (£1.59) while in the UK it is $3.62 (£1.81).
