UK broadband speed test results for October 2019

The clocks have changed and the dark evenings mean it is November and we've had the October speed test results available since the morning of 1st November, but finding the time to sit down and transcribe the figures into a news item has been the reason for them only appearing on 4th November.

The Virgin Media packages still seem to be going through a settling down period after the announcement of speed upgrades, so their presence is limited in the tables again this month. In the next few months we may well see the situation where a partial fibre service such as the Virgin Media Gig1 service is beating the full fibre services.

(*) - The Sky FTTP figures are a mixture of FTTP over the Openreach full fibre network and also some customers on OFNL based new build estates.

(**) - A TalkTalk GEA-FTTP entry is for tests where Openreach full fibre is available, the sample size is small but just enough to make it into the table and of those we have seen it is new build properties where there is no copper available.

Comments

Another strong performance for GFast.
