Slow Broadband Speeds in Leicester

Posted on March 30th, 2017 in Local News

The British Infrastructure Group’s has released a report ‘Broadband 2.0’.

The report takes a comprehensive look at broadband download speeds across every constituency in the UK, and finds that there are on average 6.7 million UK properties that could qualify for compensation. It makes the case for a comprehensive automatic compensation scheme that allows customers to be refunded for receiving unreasonably slow broadband download speeds.

For Leicester East this means:

  • The area as a whole is owed £189803.01 in compensation for receiving slow broadband download speeds;
  • Leicester East is ranked 213th in the UK for superfast broadband availability;
  • Leicester East is ranked 338th in the UK for having broadband connections above the proposed minimum standard speed of 10 Mb/s.
