UK broadband speed test results for June 2020

The BT 900 FTTP service again tops the table, but BT does have its ADSL/ADSL2+ service balancing things out by being at the bottom of the speed test table.

The general patterns do continue with the FTTP services dominating the top of the table and the Virgin Media Gig1 service could challenge for the top spot but so far there are too few people speed testing to get a decent sample size. One interesting thing to note is that EE mobile seems to be creeping up the table sitting amongst the FTTC providers, suggesting that the speed upgrades from 4G LTE and 5G are helping to move the provider from the traditional mobile broadband location which was between the ADSL2+ and FTTC packages.

In terms of ISP popularity the most popular providers were BT, Sky, Virgin Media, TalkTalk, Plusnet, EE and EE Mobile. In terms of products the most popular services were Sky Fibre FTTC 40/10, Virgin Media M200 Cable, BT Superfast 1 FTTC 55/10, Virgin Media M100 Cable, Sky ADSL2+, BT Superfast 2 FTTC 80/20, TalkTalk Fibre FTTC 40/10 and Sky Fibre Pro FTTC 80/20.

As Q2 2020 has just ended we will later in July report on the technology splits and how the trend over time has changed, plus a look at the local authority and regional speeds when we find a gap in our schedule from hunting down new bits of FTTP.
