Posted: 02nd May, 2011 By: MarkJ
download arrowComparison site Broadband.co.uk has released its latest anecdotal monthly consumer broadband ISP internet speed testing results for the past month of April 2011, which saw the average UK download speed rise to hit 7.150Mbps after recording 7.088Mbps in March 2011. The average upload speed has also increased over the same period to achieve 0.872Mbps, which is up from 0.828Mbps last month.

The fastest ISP of them all continues to be cable operator Virgin Media , which delivers average download speeds that are twice as fast (13.231Mbps) as its nearest DSL based competitor Eclipse Internet (6.564Mbps). However, both O2 ( Be Broadband ) and TalkTalk have shown some noticeable improvements in download speed.
