The UK has a problem with broadband speed – more than a million UK homes are unable to get connected with sufficient speeds to run everyday online tasks such as video streaming and conference calling, according to new findings from Ofcom, the independent regulator of the UK’s communication industry.

The industry watchdog has revealed that 1.4 million properties, which equates to 5% of all UK homes, don’t have access to broadband with speeds over 10 megabits per second (Mbps).

And although this represents a drop of almost half (42%) in the number of homes without access to fast broadband – Ofcom’s 2015 report found 2.4 million homes were unable to access 10Mbps broadband – it’s still a cause for concern for the government’s broadband targets.
