New research by casino experts AskGamblers.com has revealed that Kingston-upon-Hull boasts the best internet connection in the UK.
AskGamblers.com analysed new Ofcom data on download speeds and access to Superfast and Ultrafast broadband across the UK’s 376 local authorities for its research, and created an index to discover which areas had the best and worst internet connection of all.
Hull topped the list, with the best combined download speed (171.4 Megabits per second), and Superfast and Ultrafast broadband coverage.
In fact, the North East and Yorkshire and the Humber dominated the list, with Middlesbrough, North East Lincolnshire and Stockton-on-Tees taking the third to fifth spots. They were only blocked from a North East whitewash by Scotland’s West Dunbartonshire in second spot.
Despite Dunbartonshire’s strong showing, with a download speed of 127.4 and 89.6 per cent access to Ultrafast broadband, it’s probably no surprise that the more remote parts of Scotland dominated the worst connections list with the Orkneys, Shetlands and Argyll and Bute taking the three bottom spots, and half the spots in the bottom 10 overall going to Scottish regions.
There was bad news for Yorkshire here too – Scarborough was the only Northern authority to make the list, with a dial-up-flashback-inducing average download speed of just 45.6 Megabits per second.
