Pare che la banda larga in Inghilterra non sia così veloce come dicono le pubblicità (ma dai?):
“In mid-September, Computeractive magazine revealed a survey which showed that 62% of the 3,000 readers who carried out speed tests got less than half the top broadband speed advertised by their provider.
In response to the findings Ofcom said it was “aware” of the issue and was investigating what could be done about it.
Research by analyst firm Point Topic has shown that few people will be able to enjoy the top speeds advertised by broadband firms. It estimates that only about half the UK’s population will be able to use the web at speeds of 8Mbps.”
Ofcom ha mandato una letteraccia ai sei maggiori fornitori di connessione internet chiedendo spiegazioni.
Nel frattempo, se un giornale serio in Italia volesse fare lo stesso test e lanciare una campagna simile, non sarebbe interessante? Punto Informatico, dove siete?
