The biggest wireless advance will be the introduction of a common data exchange method, according to an information technology expert.

Andrew Ferguson, editor of IT consultancy thinkbroadband, said that the most difficult barrier to wireless USB at present is that insulation tends to block coverage inside the home.

"The biggest advance will come when a common data exchange method is arrived at, allowing devices from different manufacturers to share information and control each other," he added.

He went on to say that the current high price of energy may prove a further obstacle to a totally connected home, as it could discourage people from buying more electrical appliances that need to be always switched-on.

In the UK, broadband penetration has increased dramatically over the last six years from seven per cent in 2002 to 57 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2007, according to Ofcom.

Fierce competition among local loop unbundlers has been a factor in the growth.
