New research reveals drop in evening broadband speeds
12:00pm Wednesday 6th February 2013 in News
BROADBAND speeds in Bournemouth drop by a third for evening internet users compared to those who use it in the early hours, new research shows.
uSwitch, the independent price comparison and switching service, carried out tests to find out how much the internet speed varies from morning to evening.
The results show that the average drop in speed for Bournemouth was 35.6 per-cent, falling from 18.41Mbps broadband speed at 4am to 11.85mbps, when tested at 9pm.
Julia Stent, telecoms expert at uSwitch.com, said: “This research shows the incredible strain that is placed on broadband when everyone logs on at the same time, particularly in densely populated areas.”
She added: “It certainly explains why some people may never actually feel like their connection is as fast as the one promised by providers when they signed up.”
