Norfolk and Suffolk Slow Broadband

New figures from OFCOM are showing that Suffolk and Norfolk are still falling behind with their broadband speeds.

In November 2011, the average actual UK residential broadband speed was 7.6Mbit/s, compared with 6.2Mbit/s in November/December 2010, and 6.8Mbit/s in May 2011.

This increase was mainly as a result of consumers moving onto higher speed packages.  

Norfolk and Suffolk are some way behind those average speeds and nearly a 5th of customers still have slow speeds below 2Mbits/s.

Norfolk County
Average sync speed (Mbit/s): 6.4
Percentage getting less than 2Mbit/s: 17.6%
Superfast broadband availability: 28%
Broadband take up: 66%

Suffolk County
Average sync speed (Mbit/s): 6.3
Percentage getting less than 2Mbit/s: 19.8%
Superfast broadband availability: 29%
Broadband take up: 69%

There are campaigns running in both counties to get thousands of people to sign up to push for better broadband connection speeds.
