"Super-fast broadband is now available to more than 83% of UK homes - up from 75% in the same period in 2014.
The research found that only 2.4 million UK homes, about 8%, cannot get speeds of 10Mbps or more. Many of these homes were in rural areas."
Well I live close to a town and my speed via Telefonica is 8.5Mps.
I could transfer to a local fibre optic service which promises 100Mbs but I know from the experience of others that quitting Telefonica can be a painful process and I wonder how long the local service can survive if very few subscribe to it.
I'd hoped that Telefonica might offer a fibre optic service to replace the copper cable but that does not seem likely.
