download arrowComparison site Broadband.co.uk has released its latest anecdotal monthly consumer broadband ISP speed testing results for the past month of May 2011, which saw the average UK internet download speed drop from 7.150Mbps a month ago to 6.970Mbps now. The average upload speed also saw a minor decline from 0.872Mbps to 0.851Mbps over the same period.

Cable operator Virgin Media UK, despite experiencing a small loss of performance, still remains the fastest overall broadband provider for both download (12.854Mbps) and upload (1.480Mbps) performance.
