Broadband Speeds in London Boroughs

Posted by Dan Pope on Mar 5, 2015 10:45:33 AM

Just a few weeks ago Fluidata reported on news that telecommunications provider Virgin Media is planning on installing billions of pounds worth of infrastructure across the UK. Unfortunately for those that suffer from rural broadband issues, Virgin are planning on installing most of this new technology in urban areas such as London, which many feel is unfair.

However, the truth is that even in London there is a digital divide, as highlighted by recent research conducted by Startups.co.uk. The company published the average broadband speeds for each London borough as well as the amount of new businesses that have started and closed in each area over the past few years. Surprisingly, some of the most affluent constituencies in London suffer from slow broadband speeds, such as Kensington and Chelsea where the average speed is just 22Mb/s.

Wifi goes underground

Posted by Dan Pope on Jun 28, 2012 10:35:19 AM

Over the past few days a number of tube stations (including Kings Cross and Oxford Circus) across London have announced free Wifi access on their platforms. All it takes is a device which can connect to the internet and an email address to register with. It is expected that 80 underground stations will be able to provide the service in time for the upcoming Olympics and a further 40 by the end of the year. However, free access is only available for a limited time. The end of the Olympics will mark the end of free Wifi and from that point onwards only Virgin customers will be able to access the network without paying.
