Thanks to James Green for nominating this fascinating statistic (if true):
“A 1 per cent improvement in broadband connectivity is estimated to cause a drop of 200 million litres a year in national fuel demand”
The NZ Herald quoted this (without attribution) but Thomas Lumley tracked down the source of the statistic to a report by Z Energy. The report contains no further details on the statistic.
“Would be fascinating if true, but without them revealing an actual source, seems difficult and barely credible to firmly link these two.”
Congratulations James for being our Stat of the Week Winner!
