UK broadband speed test results for November 2019

We trust that people are not having too many sugary Christmas coffees in the their lunch breaks in December but after a few busy days of keeping the broadband offers up to date for the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales as well as the normal tracking of the broadband roll-outs it is time for our analysis of all the speed tests we saw in November. A hint of how busy things were on the coverage tracking is that since 1st December the full fibre coverage figure for the UK has risen from 10.36% to 10.41%.

Unfortunately the small matter of the General Election ate into the time I had set aside to re-work our Virgin Media product detection, so we have as in other recent months just featured the 350 Mbps, 50 Mbps tier and the overall figures for Virgin Media.

Update 4th December: Vodafone Gigafast was shown twice, unfortunately we had left the October 2019 figure in the table, this has now been corrected.

Another strong month for GFast.
