  • house prices and fast broadband
    be plenty of rural properties that will struggle to get to these sort of speeds A superfast broadband connection is classed as a broadband connection of 24Mb or above Filed under Broadband Speeds Home Broadband Tags fast broadband house prices and fast broadband Rightmove Author Mark 12 00 pm Comments 0 February 14 2011 Fast broadband helps sell houses A recent survey has shown that a fast broadband connection could well be a deal breaker when it comes to buying a house The survey done by ISPreview found that 68 8 of the 733 people who filled out the survey would be put off from buying a beautiful new house if it didn t have a fast broadband connection However when buying a house around half of the people 50 4 said that they would pay more yet 49 5 wouldn t pay more for a house with faster broadband which means that it s is a pretty even split as to if people are willing to pay a premium for a fast broadband house or not It is likely that now with the roll out of fibre broadband across the UK houses that will be connected to the next generation fibre network could put these sellers at an advantage over those who are still on standard ADSL broadband connections It could likely see some towns with fibre broadband become more popular over neighbouring towns that are not connected to a fibre broadband network which in turn would potentially drive up house prices in certain areas When asked how important broadband is to their home lives a large 73 9 said that it is Critically Important 24 2 said it was Average Importance and just 1 7 said it was not important The results of the survey are slightly flawed

    fast broadband Rightmove Author Mark 12 00 pm Comments 0 March 8 2011 Rightmove to list broadband speeds of homes Rightmove are to add the estimated broadband speeds of the 1 million homes that it has listed on it s website According to a story that was run by The Telegraph newspaper they have learnt that Rightmove and BT are teaming up so that the estimated broadband speed of a home is listed down against the basic stats of a house such as the number of bedrooms garden or garage Along with the estimated broadband speed to be listed on Rightmove they will also be listing if the property is covered or due to be covered by the new fibre BT Infinity network that is currently being rolled out across the country and will offer fibre optic broadband with a download speed of up to 40Mb At the present time though coverage of the Virgin Media cable network is not being included which could adversely effect the listing of many properties that will only have the broadband speed listed to them that is availfable by a BT ADSL network which could be just 4Mb when in reality they could be receiving 50Mb broadband connections from Virgin Media Around 90 of properties for sale in the UK are listed on Rightmove so it has a huge importance to the property industry with many buyers using the portal when searching for potential new homes A source a Rightmove told The Telegraph Broadband is becoming one of the most if not the most important considerations for prospective buyers Many people fall in love with a home only to find out it can only get really slow internet By listing broadband speed with all the other property details buyers will be able to weed

  • broadband speed test
    broadband rush hour with some towns noticing a huge 69 difference in the broadband speeds they receive between peak and off peak hours Anyone wanting to get the fastest use out of their broadband are best to do so between the hours of 2am 3am in the morning that are found to be the times when you are likely to receive your fastest broadband connection obviously as most people are in bed asleep at this time that makes sense with the fastest UK average broadband speed at around 9 6Mb during this time The contrast is when the information super highway is at it s rush hour between 7pm and 9pm in the evening when there are the most people using the internet at home and the average UK broadband speed drops to around 6 2Mb The study was done by the price comparison website uSwitch com with the data of more than 2 million broadband speed test s analysed Only Post Code areas that had more than 100 speed tests with included in the results and included both standard ADSL broadband connections and also fibre broadband connections The Technology expert at uSwitch Ernest Doku said It really is surprising just how much broadband speeds fluctuate at different times of the day with drop offs of almost 70 in some areas of the UK Not many internet users enjoy the maximum headline broadband speeds offered by providers and certainly not during the working week This research may help to shed some light on why many bewildered consumers who believe they ve signed up to a certain broadband speed never actually feel like their connection is fast enough The problem of slower broadband speeds has been exacerbated by changes in the way people use the internet with far more people downloading music and watching TV programmes online inevitably putting more strain on the network Evesham in Worcestershire was the area that topped the charts for the widest variation in broadband speeds with the morning speed between 7 9am averaging 15 5Mb and the evening speed between 7 9pm down to just 4 9Mb More people streaming music and live TV online in the evening are huge factors for the slowing down of broadband connections in the evening as faster more reliable broadband speeds have been made available there has also seen an increasing use and demand for more bandwidth hungry applications such as for the BBC iPlayer to give consumers what they want to watch on demand Looking to the future it is clear that the fibre broadband deployment across the UK is vital in making sure that consumers will continue to be able to use the internet at peak hours without interruption Filed under Broadband Speeds Tags Broadband rush hour broadband slower in the evening broadband speed test Broadband speeds slow in the evening broadband rush hour slowest time of day to use broadband Author Mark 10 21 am Comments 1 September 22 2011 BT refute the list of slowest streets for broadband uSwitch yesterday published what they believed are the 50 slowest broadband streets in the UK but today BT has countered this by saying that the results are based on false data In uSwitches report they said that the street of Mount Pleasant in the Suffolk town of Halesworth had the slowest broadband of any street in the whole country with an average broadband speed of 0 128Mb However BT have countered this claim by saying that their data indicates that the street has speeds of 7 5Mb and that Mount Pleasant was very close to the local telephone exchange meaning it very unlikely that it would get such slow broadband speeds plus the street has access to fibre broadband too The top 2 streets for the slowest broadband on the list are both actually connected up to fibre broadband A BT spokesperson said It appears that the data in this survey is out of date Fibre broadband is now available for a number of the streets identified We wouldn t disagree with uSwitch that there are a number of slow spots in the UK and that needs addressing but it would seem they haven t managed to identify them correctly here BT said that 7 of the 50 streets identified in the list have access to fibre broadband However just because they have access to fibre broadband does not mean that residents on the streets are signed up to it and that the results in uSwitch s report are based on actual broadband speed test s that are carried out by consumers A minimum of 10 speed tests per post code had to have been done before they were considered to be included in the report Filed under Broadband Speeds Tags broadband speed test BT Broadband slowets broadband streer Author Sheri 9 27 am

the broadband speed test results from the broadband co uk website Unsurprisingly heading the field is Virgin Media with their cable broadband network which provided and average broadband speed of over

speed of 7 15Mb just ahead of BT who s average was 6 99Mb With Virgin Media BT broadband both battling fiercely to sign up as many customers to their fibre broadband networks it will be pleasing for Virgin Media to see that currently their average broadband speed is almost 10Mb faster than that BT customers receive The speed test study looks at the largest UK broadband providers to work out what their average broadband speed test is The following is the list of average broadband speed test results Virgin Media 16

  • UK enters top 10 for global broadband speeds
    fibre broadband across the UK it made for some quite impressive results we showed an 11 rise from Q1 and a staggering 48 rises year on year to bring the average UK broadband speed test result in at 8 4Mb Still topping the charts was South Korea with an average broadband speed of 13 3Mb this was actually a 6 4 decline on the previous year but still keeps them ahead of Japan who have an average of 12Mb broadband speeds The global average for peak broadband connection speeds is probably just as if not a more interesting figure to keep an eye on too this helps show the possible internet connection capacity that countries have Globally the peak average for Q2 2013 only rose 0 1 from Q1 and 17 year on year up to 18 9Mb However leading the way was Hong Kong with a blistering 65 1Mb followed by South Korea with 53 3Mb and then Japan with 48 8Mb What we hope to see and have said for a few years now is that the UK should start to rise quite ell up the global broadband speed test charts as the continued fibre optic broadband rollout across the UK continues and with more and more consumers switching to fibre the average speeds for the UK should also continue to rise Filed under Broadband Speeds News Tags Akamai Average broadband speeds broadband speed test State Of The Internet Author Mark 1 54 pm Comments 0 No Comments No comments yet RSS feed for comments on this post TrackBack URL Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Search for Blogroll Broadband News Broadband Speed Test Mobile Broadband Categories Broadband Bundles Broadband Speeds Business Broadband Fibre broadband Gaming Home Broadband IPTV Mobile Broadband News
