UK - Orange has provided a map to show the likely effect of making broadband access universal

[it portal] Orange, one of UK’s largest telecom and broadband service providers, has rolled out an interactive map of Britain which depicts which cities will see a shift in their population if everyone had a universal access to mobile and fixed line broadband connection.

The map, being hosted on Orange’s website, is based on the ‘Connected Britain’ survey which was done earlier by the telecom giant.

It is used to determine the places, within the country, which people of Britain were most likely to migrate if they had an universal access to fast and reliable internet, allowing them to stay connected from anywhere in the country.

Orange, which surveyed 3,250 people across the country, revealed that the south-west part of the country was likely to see a staggering 158 percent rise in its population by 2015.

Meanwhile, Scotland and London may witness a population surge of 58 percent and 40 percent respectively whereas headcount in Wales might rise by 5 percent.
