Fast, reliable broadband internet access is essential for homes throughout the country to benefit from online services, and for UK businesses to compete globally. The Government hit its target to extend superfast broadband to 95 per cent of the UK by the end of 2017. The Government firmly believes that this transformation of the digital landscape should reach every area of the UK, including those areas of the Woking constituency that still suffer poor quality internet access.
New research from Centre for Towns has highlighted the huge variations in broadband speeds available across the country. Download speeds from more than 6,000 places across England, Scotland and Wales have been analysed, with some areas experiencing connections forty-five times slower than the national average.
Woking is ranked 64th in the country for average download speed, with an average speed of 61.70 Mbps compared to the national average of 46.2 Mbps.
Centre for Towns has analysed more than 6,000 towns and villages, providing you with localised data for areas that fall wholly or partly within your constituency. This means you can check how broadband connectivity varies across the Woking constituency.
