UK Online Economy is Worth Billions


We keep a close eye on technology news here at Toolkit Websites, Southampton. So we were very interested in a story appearing on BBC News recently, that says that the UK online economy is 'worth billions'.

The story goes on to report that the internet contributes more to the UK economy that the construction, transport and utility sectors in findings from a study conducted by Google.

It would seem that the largest contributions come from online consumption, for example online shopping, and the money spent on internet connections. We're apparently also the world's leading nation in e-commerce usage. This would have been unthinkable even 10 years ago and shows how much UK attitudes to the online world have changed.

As a UK based web design company, we can certainly see the benefits of an online presence for our business clients. This is confirmed by the report, which says 'small businesses that actively use the internet report sales growth more than four times greater than that of less active companies.'
