A lot was made out of the recent Ofcom report claiming that no broadband user in the UK actually gets the top end of advertised speeds and in fact the UK average broadband connection speed is currently 4.1 Mbps.
However according to telecom and broadband supplier BT, these claims and figures are out of date and unreliable.
BT claims that it has been moving customers onto more advanced and therefore faster broadband connections.
These services also offer the user a more reliable service during the peak hours, another concern that Ofcom pointed out.
At the same time, BT is following cable broadband provider Virgin Media to roll out the fibre optic network.
Currently this is being tested in London and Wales, but the full rollout is due to start early next year.
