Hotline: Average broadband speeds

Average broadband speeds are less than half of "up to" speeds, as advertised by certain internet service providers, according to Ofcom.

Its research found the average broadband speeds in the UK increased from 5.2mbit/s in May 2010 to 6.2mbit/s in December 2010, but were less than half (45 per cent) the average advertised broadband speed of 13.8mbit/s.
