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."

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
