UK Fixed-line Broadband Performance, November 2013

Source: Ofcom (UK)

From Background:

In order to understand the performance of UK fixed-line residential broadband connections, we commission research to identify the average download speeds that they deliver, along with a number of other metrics which determine the consumer experience of using broadband services. This is the tenth report into fixed-line residential broadband performance that Ofcom has published using data collected by research partner SamKnows Limited (SamKnows) from a volunteer panel of UK residential broadband users.

The present report sets out the findings from data collected during November 2013, during which 735 million test results were collected from a panel of 2,391 UK residential broadband users...

Fixed broadband performance is an issue for many consumers, and Ofcom research conducted in Q1 2013 suggested that 11% of fixed broadband users were ‘very’ or ‘fairly’ dissatisfied with the speed of their connection. Likewise, while 81% of fixed broadband users were either ‘very’ or ‘fairly’ satisfied with the speed of their service, this was lower than the proportion of users who were ‘very’ or ‘fairly’ satisfied with their overall fixed broadband service (88%).
