Broadband Speed

Broadband provides access to internet services such as videoconferencing for work, tele-healthcare, access to job or property advertisements, and e-commerce. It is fast becoming an essential utility alongside water, gas and electric in UK homes. From March 2018, the Government set a legal minimum service obligation (LSO) of 10 megabytes per second (Mbps). Ofcom research shows that 10 Mbps is the minimum speed currently needed to meet an average household’s digital needs. It should be fast enough for multiple people in a household to be online at once.
