    Mr O'Brien says there are still challenges ahead
    UK firms are embracing internet trading opportunities as never before, e-commerce minister Mike O'Brien says.
    A government-commissioned study ranked the UK third in its world index of use of information and communication technology (ICT).

    The report suggests 69% of UK firms are now using broadband and that 30% of micro businesses are trading online.

    Mr O'Brien said UK businesses were sprinting forward in ICT use, but that there were more challenges ahead.

    The report, carried out independently by consultants Booz Allen Hamilton and HI Europe, placed the UK third behind Sweden and Ireland for business use of ICT.
