A third of homes in the UK have broadband speeds well below the national average
No! Say it ain't so!

49% of people get less than average speed?! And a third, WELL below the average? This is a scandel!! What can be done to change this travesty? What if we increased broadband speed to the unlucky 49%?

PPS. Its still a frickin stupid story.
