Britain’s broadband boost – finally, some good news about your internet speeds
BRITISH broadband connections are getting faster… albeit, not quite at the rate we’d like. Millions working from home have seen their average download speeds creep up, latest repot confirms, but the UK is still trailing behind some 45 other countries worldwide. And that’s likely not to change anytime soon.
Unfortunately, last year wasn’t packed with good news for those struggling with slow broadband speeds at home. As the UK went into the first of two nationwide lockdowns, experts warned of impeding blackouts and power failures due to the broadband infrastructure not being able to cope with the dramatic increase in demand caused by millions of people working, studying and socialising online from their homes. Thankfully, those warnings didn’t come true – but there wasn’t much good news for broadband users either.
