Thirty percent of UK internet traffic is now at speeds above 5Mbps, an increase of 70% compared to last year, according to the latest Akamai State of the Internet report,

But 9% of UK internet users are still running less than the minimum bandwidth of 2Mbps set as the government's target for UK broadband. Less than 1% (0.6%) of UK internet requests came from users running below 256Mbps, declining by 47% from last year's report.

Within Europe, the Netherlands had the highest average connection speed in the second quarter of the year - the period covered by the report - reaching 8.5Mbps. Sixteen of the listed countries had average connection speeds that exceeded 5Mbps, while the remaining six had average connection speeds that exceeded the 2Mbps threshold.
