UK broadband one of the slowest in Europe

Yet another study into broadband speeds has highlighted that the UK is lacking when it comes to the broadband speeds we receive compared to other European countries.

The latest comes from the "Information Technology Innovation Foundation" (ITIF) which is an independent think-tank who’s study showed that the average speed broadband users it the UK receive is 2.6MB with Poland, Hungary & Slovakia all clocking faster speeds than us.

The country topping the list was Finland who clocked 21.7MB, followed by Sweden with 18.2MB and then France with 17.6MB.

The difference between these countries and the UK is that Finland and Sweden have invested in Fibre networks and France is also upgrading its network.

Although this does not make good reading for the UK it will hopefully add more weight to the current discussions that are going on with regards to the need for investment to get Fibre To The Home (FTTH) rolled out across the UK.
