It’s a problem that many households struggle with, and now the list of the worst streets for broadband in 2020 has been announced.
uswitch.com has analysed the broadband speeds of almost 400,000 consumers, to reveal which areas have the best and worst broadband.
Queens Road in Weybridge, Surrey has been crowned the slowest street for broadband, with average download speeds of just 0.12Mbps.
At the other end of the scale is Dale Lane in Appleton, Cheshire, where residents enjoy average speeds of 639.67Mbps - 5,330 times faster than on Queens Road!
Scroll down for the full list of best and worst streets for broadband.
Ernest Doku, broadband expert at Uswitch.com, says: “The digital divide that runs through Britain has grown dramatically in the last year, with the fastest street’s broadband more than 5,000 times quicker than the slowest’s.
“It’s interesting to see that the North claims the fastest street this year, while the slowest street is in the South East, showing that the speed of your connection has nothing to do with where you live.
“It’s great that more of us are enjoying ultrafast broadband, but we don’t want to see large swathes of the country left behind on shoddy connections that aren’t suitable for modern life.
“With millions of us working from home and watching more streaming TV at the moment, a good broadband connection is more important than ever.
“One of the biggest obstacles stopping people from getting faster downloads speeds is the lack of awareness regarding superfast and ultrafast broadband.
“For example, some people on the UK’s fastest street, Dale Lane, enjoy speeds above 900Mbps, while others only get 5.5Mbps.
“And of the ten slowest streets, seven could have access to faster broadband, so we urge residents there — and anyone else unhappy with their broadband speeds — to do a quick check online to see what speeds they could be getting.”
