UK Broadband Customers Don’t Get Decent Connection Speeds

UK Broadband Customers Don’t Get Decent Connection Speeds

The UK MPs found out that millions of broadband subscribers continue to suffer “dire” connection speeds despite BT receiving £1.7bn in taxpayers’ money to improve connection services. Now the MPs are calling for BT to be split from its Openreach subsidiary in order to end its “natural monopoly” over the UK’s broadband infrastructure. This move was urged by claims of 5.7 million subscribers, particularly in rural locations, having connection speeds so low they break regulations.


The telecom giant said it took any criticism seriously, but believes that the MP’s report was “misleading and ill-judged”, saying that the proposal to break apart the business was “wrong-headed” and the figures were “entirely misleading”. However, the report carries the signatures of 121 MPs and called for a “bold and comprehensive solution”, saying that Openreach has repeatedly failed to deliver superfast services to harder-to-reach areas of the country despite receiving £1.7bn in taxpayer subsidies.

It was alleged that failure to improve ageing digital infrastructure that still relies on outdated copper cables could be blamed for “stifling” the economy at a cost of billions annually. According to figures provided by the Office for National Statistics, the researchers found that about 5.7 million broadband customers had Internet connections that do not reach Ofcom’s “acceptable” minimum speed of 10Mbit/s. About 3.5 million of such subscribers live in rural areas. Ofcom’s review had also found 42% of SMEs reported experiencing problems with their connectivity, while 29% also complained about poor service reliability. This may cost the economy £11bn a year.

bone111 avatarThey Still charge full price for fast speeds knowing your line will only do 20% of what they are charging is the biggest insult

example they advertise it as UPTO! 20mb but yout only get 2 or 3

Sammy1968 avatarStupid. The more money you pay into a connection, the faster your ISP will give you. Why is this even a conversation??

Selsley avatarand they still dont admit to throttling back speeds of custemers with unlimited downloads where unlimited means under 100gb a month.
and there was me thinking that unlimited and infinate meant the same.

1.7 million of our tax pounds and they almost doubled the line rental last year,

YngBlondboy avatarI feel sorry for you Brits with the near AOL dialup speeds at times it would seem... Over here in Las Vegas, I pay $75 a month for 100mb DL speed which i get (about to have 1gb service here).. But really your DL speed is limited by what/who you are connecting to.. If they can't send as fast or send slower then a faster connection won't help... But i do love finding those sources that match my speed and a 500 MB file DLs in less then minute

trialNerror avatarAnd Comcast customers in the USA do not get real HD HDTV.
On 90 percent of their channels they use the bare minimum video bitrates.
They recently switched from the old MPEG2-TS format to the new H264 and the quality is even worse than before.

Smil3Y avatarNeither Indian customers get decent speed

if you take 1mbps plan your normal downloading speed is 120-160kbps..!

rameshavi avatarIn Nepal:

Unlimited service with 128 kbps plan for a month cost 10 $ but you get a normal downloading speed of 25 kbps.

Wamphyri avatarI live in a city and can't get fibre! Just a week ago my connection speed averaged 2Mbps - I managed to get the speed boosted after complaining and I'm now racing ahead at an average of 7Mbps. My local cabinet is "under review" according to the BT Openreach website.

No avatarI am with virgin media I have yet to get anywhere near the speed that I pay for. I was on the 100mb they said that they had upgraded it to a higher speed. But never ever got any higher than 10 download at any time. All sorts of faults they say caused by noise on the network and it is total crap. Trouble is that bt around us and sky that hang off bt's network is even worse. I mean terrible. BT have fleeced the uk government. Have not delivered anything like what they should. The uk government should be getting a lot of money in subscription fees that people pay bt in my view

Ratbasturd avatarI'm with Sky now as got sick of the really bad service from BT then Talk Talk, but Sky is probably the worst I've been with out of the three. Is there any suppliers out there who completely by pass BT Openreach's infrastructure ? If not it looks like it's going to have to be Virgin as it's cabled here, but from what I've read so far it's also really bad.... We (U.K.) are suppose to be a first world country, however we're running on a third world infrastructure, and on top of it our government thinks it's ok and lie about it.
