UK survey: knowledge about broadband internet connection speed at home 2019

This statistic shows whether the general population knows how to access the internet speed at their homes in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2019. As of February 2019, 47 percent of respondents did not know how to find out the speed of their internet connection. Generally, respondents don't know the actual speed of the fixed broadband at households. This might be due to the fact that broadband speeds were constantly increasing throughout the years. Thus, the need to measure or to know the speed of broadband connections was not as important as it was in the past.

Do you know how to find out what speeds you are getting on your computer at home?
