It’s not just rural areas with poor broadband connections

July 15, 2009

There has been a lot of talk about how rural areas are not being served by the UK’s internet service providers but, according to a survey by, it seems that there are plenty of places in and around the major cities where slow broadband is a fact of life.

Even residents of some of the most exclusive areas in the UK are finding that their status and wealth cannot buy them a decent fixed line broadband connection, making the UK coverage appear worse than it first seemed.

Henley on Thames and Marlow are well heeled areas with exclusive houses and wealthy residents, yet in Marlow the broadband connection speed is around 500 Kbps, compared with the national average of 3.6 Mbps.
