People in the UK are Europe's 'most digitally aware' says Ofcom.

Research carried out by Ofcom show that people in the UK spend more time online than any other nation in Europe, spending on average more than 12 hours a week online.  They also own more smartphones and watch more TV via the internet than other Europeans.  27% of people in the UK watch TV online every week, using such services as the BBC's iPlayer.

With 46% of all mobile subscribers having smartphones, the UK leads both Europe and the US, with Spain close behind with 45%.
