Mirror Mirror on the wall…who has the slowest broadband of them all?
Well it seems as if the mirror says that Farningham, a small village in Kent has managed to come ‘top’ in a new list of the country’s slowest locations for broadband Internet Service Provider connections in the UK. Farningham managed to average a download speed at just around – 1.30Mbps (Megabits Per Second).
I think that it could be safe to say that if in the case you decide to make a Google search, you could possibly find it a lot easier to run to the Google server? – Maybe not.
The results which found that Farningham had the slowest broadband speeds came from a survey conducted by www.top10.com in August to October 2010 – the results were based upon 98,000 UK speedtests.
Hopefully BT and Virgin will now be on the run to quickly lay down some new Fiber-Optics to get a reasonable speed to these poor people of Farningham. With the expansion of Fibre-Optic networks, hopefully we will see the decrease in area’s which suffer with poor broadband speeds.
