Where did you get the average UK salery from. I am sure it is quite a
bit higher than that. I think that it is certainly in the mid 20s.

My figure includes Scotland and Wales (part of UK still I think).
If you think it is *certainly* in the mid 20s then prove it.

GDP per capita 2001 in USD

country, Exchange rate, Purchasing power
USA 35,200 35,200

Germany 22,500 26,300
UK 24,300 26,400
Ireland 26,600 30,000

NZ 13,100 21,200

OECD 22,100 24,500
Major 7 29,300 30,100
Euro Zone 20,000 25,300

I think that if you want to make comparisons with cheap broadband
you should have a look at prices in Germany!

I have inclued Ireland in these figures because it has a population
about the same size and a distribution similar to New Zealand
(One city of 1M Dublin) two > 100K (Cork, Limerick)
