the Broadband in Britain is speeding up

February 22, 2007 4:57pm CST
Broadband is getting faster in the UK but some customers are not reaching the speeds that service providers have advertised, shows a survey. The average UK broadband download speed is now 2Mbps, up from 512Kbps three years ago, says The figures are based on more than a third of a million speed tests carried out by the website's users. But many people who have been sold "up to 8Mbps" services are still getting substantially slower connections. "Compared to a couple of years ago the average has gone up," confirmed Andrew Ferguson, editor of "But the survey shows that whilst a number of providers are marketing products as an 'up to 8Mbps' service, it is clear that some of them have a fair proportion of customers still on fixed 512kbps, 1Mbps or 2Mbps services." what do you think? discuss
