The statement continued, 'Customers can receive consistent speeds and a top speed of 10Mbit is available throughout our broadband addressable areas. We will be increasing this to 20Mbit in June and we are also currently conducting a residential trial of a 50Mbit broadband service.'
These speeds seem incredible to us, yet at the same time many countries are offering 100Mbit connections at home. Of course, numerous factors play in to that, such as when the technologies were first deployed. In the U.S., most broadband lines are much slower than this, with some cable providers only recently offering bursts to 20Mbit or higher.
