UK broadband average speed 4.6Mbps

Over half the UK already has broadband and the average speed of these connections is 4.6 megabits per second - or more than 80 times the speed of the old dial-up connections. But it is not fast enough. Countries such as France, Germany, the US, Japan and South Korea have already started investing in networks that can deliver up to 100 megabits per second, enough for a dozen high-definition TV channels or lightning-fast downloading of music and videos.
