Around three million homes in the UK have broadband speeds of less than two megabits per second (2Mbps) according to research commissioned by the BBC.
The research revealed that so-called notspots are not limited to rural communities, with many in suburban areas and even streets in major towns.
Are you in one of the 'notspots'
Either way, my home is too far from the exchange to expect relatively high speeds. And there's no cable offering in the area, either.
We're heading for more problems, imho, unless the infrastructure gets significant investment.
I don't know if its the provider or just the distance to the exchange, its rubbish anyway I can't wait for the days of extreme speeds.
Mobile "broadband" is a joke. Connections usually drop after 10 minutes and speeds are often well below 1 meg. Speed isn't dependent on signal strength so I guess my provider (no names, just think of a number) has rather oversold the service. When my daughter moved to a flat without a landline I advised her not to go straight into a mobile contract but to buy her own usb modem then try all the providers out on PAYG first.
