Ofcom Speed data and me


[link to this post]
 
I live on the outskirts of Chesterfield not a small village within the Sheffield post code area-presumably "SUBURBAN". They say average of 17.9 M. Even in "Rural" they say average of 9.9M. Why is mine 4M ?

Because average does not mean minimum.

Our maps page http://maps.thinkbroadband.com/?utm_source=mainsite&...

Shows the big variation in speeds across Chesterfield.

to get an average of 18 or 10 requires some to be less than those numbers.

There may be things you can do to get more out of the line, or it may be your line length that's doing you a disservice.
