Posted: 07th Feb, 2011 By: MarkJ
download arrowComparison site Broadband.co.uk has released its latest anecdotal monthly consumer broadband ISP speed testing results for the past month of January 2011, which saw the average UK internet download speed remain almost unchanged from the previous month at 5.691Mbps. Meanwhile the average upload speed shot up again, this time from 0.673Mbps in December 2010 to 0.728Mbps now.

Cable operator Virgin Media UK remains the fastest broadband ISP for download speeds, which jumped from 10.913Mbps last month to a new record of 11.193Mbps now. Similarly they also topped the charts for upload speeds, going from 0.994Mbps last month to an impressive 1.241Mbps now. It's unlikely that any of the DSL (ADSL) providers will be able to catch up.
