According to Ofcom reports the UK's average home download speed is on the rise, but it could be still faster if more users upgraded at minimal rate. Ofcom noted that the price difference between many of the so called super fast services and current generation connections was comparatively little.
The news site thinkbroadband.com said the research also highlighted the need for investment in out-of-town connections. Upgrades offered by Virgin Media and BT helped boost the figure. The opinion of regulator is that November's average broadband speed was 7.6 megabits per second, up from 6.8Mbps in May. The other thing s that it is the first report since internet service providers were told they would only be able to claim a maximum speed if it was available to 10% of their customers.
