UK Energy Saving Consider the Environmental Benefits of Broadband

Press release from: UK Energy Saving

Broadband connections are becoming more and more the norm, not only in the business world but also in the home. This is, of course, largely driven by the fact that prices for this type of high-speed connection are becoming increasingly affordable, but broadband also fits in well with the fast-paced lifestyles of today. Clearly, broadband brings with it a wealth of benefits for the individual user, but UK Energy Saving ( has been considering how this might fit in with an environmentally-friendly lifestyle.

The key environmental disadvantage of broadband is the fact that it can be left on at no extra cost (in terms of call charges) and without tying up a telephone line. This is very convenient for home users wanting to keep an eye on their email, for example, but means that the power usage of the computer is higher than when logging on to the internet was just a brief once or twice a day activity.

From a work perspective, however, broadband has provided the opportunity for some flexible, eco-friendly business practices. Home working, for example, is a much more feasible option thanks to the speed of a broadband connection, this potentially greatly reducing the mileage required for commuting to and from the workplace. In addition, the much more viable option of teleconferencing can reduce business miles both on a national and international scale.

Hayley Jones, Web Marketing Director for UK Energy Saving, comments on the use of broadband. “Broadband clearly has many advantages over dial-up connections, but the service should be used wisely. Business can use it to real environmental advantage and home users can also reduce any negative environmental impact. Our main advice would be to make sure that you are not staying online unnecessarily and that you are using your PC or laptop in a power-saving way. Check with the manufacturer for the most energy efficient way of using your computer and bear this in mind in along with the basic premise of not using it for the sake of it.”

The UK Energy Saving broadband information page,, provides information on the benefits of broadband as well as suggesting sites for the provision of cheap broadband services.
