Ofcom Claims Broadband Speed Up by 22 Percent in UK

Ofcom has brought some good news for broadband users in the UK. In a new report, viagra sale the organization has claimed that in last one year, the broadband speed has increased by up to 22 percent. In December, 2010, the average broadband speed in UK was measured at 6.2 Mbps, which is now up to 7.6 Mbps. The report also suggests that more and more people are now opting for higher speed packages. About 58 percent of residential broadband subscribers are now using packages with speed of 10Mbps or higher.

The report has also slammed service providers for poor advertising ethics. The report, however, gave top accolades to BT Infinity and Virgin Media for providing actual speeds closest to their advertising speeds. Ofcom chief executive officer Ed Richards said, “We can look forward to further increases in UK broadband speeds over the next few years. Most households in the UK can now access superfast broadband services.”

Ofcom has stressed that ISPs need to ramp up their services, as most of the increase in broadband speed is due to subscribers opting for higher speed packages. Michael Phillips of Broadbandchoices.co.uk added, “A 22 per cent uplift in the average broadband speed for consumers sounds impressive but on closer inspection it is mainly due to consumers biting the bullet and upgrading their broadband service, not providers improving their existing service.”
