Mobile broadband users get less than 1Mbps

Only 24% of users get advertised speeds

Mobile broadband users in the UK on average receive speeds of less than 1Mbps, says Epitiro.

A study by the research group revealed that just 24 percent of all mobile broadband users in the UK received the advertised download speed. Epitiro said that 34 percent of mobile broadband users found their internet connection was slower than the average ADSL connection

The research also highlighted that at 3am, the average connection increased to 1.8Mbps, indicating that the ppoor speed can be blammed on high numbers of users all trying to get online.

"This exhaustive study confirms the general consensus that mobile broadband services are functional and, while currently slower in practice than their fixed line competition, continually improving," says Gavin Johns, CEO of Epitiro.

"That we recorded a few measurements at relatively higher speeds is confirmation that mobile broadband technology is capable of much more."

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
