O2 Slips in January 2009 Broadband Speed Table

Posted: 09th Feb, 2009 By: MarkJ
Comparison site Broadband.co.uk has released its latest anecdotal monthly broadband speed testing results for January 2009, which show that Virgin Media continues to hold its top position with an average download of 6.018Mbps (6.073Mbps in Dec'08).

O2 (Be Broadband) manages to retain second place with 5.319Mbps, though this is considerably down on December's 5.905Mbps and could point to the impact of the ISPs current network congestion problems. However they do still retain first place for upload performance with 0.734Mbps:
