No hope for some in UK broadband survey

Maps of the UK have appeared showing that a number of properties from Lewis in the Western Isles to remote parts of English counties are not able to receive broadband services.

UK Broadband World shows users exactly how fast their connection will go by use of the postcode.

Universal Broadband wars continue

The Government has been accused of backtracking on a commitment to fast broadband - saying one thing, and doing another?!

The opposition parties were especially critical of the government's commitment to broadband speeds "up to" 2Mbps as part of its pledge to offer universal broadband access by 2012.

Jeremy Hunt, the shadow culture secretary, argued the government's commitment to 2Mbps broadband for every UK home was pitifully low since the country's current average access speed is 3.6Mbps.

He said that the report itself acknowledged Britain was lagging behind France, Germany, the US and Japan when it came to broadband speeds. "Forty per cent of our households do not have broadband at all and connections actually fell last year," he added.

Virgin ups speed leage

With promised speeds of up to 50 Megabits a Second, the new Virgin offering has escalated the speed war in the UK bradband market.



Now eclipsing the 24Mbps speed offered by Be, the Virgin cable offering is reaching new capabilities which previously would only be available on a local area network (like full sized video streaming - what's that TV for again?)



Look out here on Virgin Broadband to get your share of super high speed broadband !
