Broadband speeds are on the rise
The average UK broadband download speed is now 2Mbps, up from 512Kbps three years ago, says thinkbroadband.com.
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 thinkbroadband.com.
"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."
