It’s that time of the year again when we take a look back to see how video streaming speeds by different broadband ISPs have changed for UK users of Netflix’s popular internet movie and TV service, which this year adds the impact from Vodafone’s fixed line service and oddly splits TalkTalk’s “fibre” and “DSL” connections.
