Telford | News | Published:

Broadband users living in one Shropshire street have the fastest download speeds in the UK, a study has found.

Residents of Willowfield, in Woodside, Telford, can download a music album in just 11 seconds or a two-hour film in two minutes and 49 seconds thanks to super fast broadband download speeds.

The street has registered speeds of 70.9Mbps over the past six months, while Trinity View, in Ketley Bank, Telford, was ranked sixth with speeds of 62.95mbps.

This compares to Cromarty Road in Stamford, Lincolnshire, which has an average speed of 0.132Mbps.

The average download speed across Telford between April and September this year is 10.99mbps, almost 2mbps faster than the national average of 9mbps.

The survey, run by comparison service uSwitch, carried out more than 2.2 million speed tests on homes around the country.

Councillor Bill McClements, Telford & Wrekin Council cabinet member for resources and service delivery, said: "This is fantastic news for Telford and Wrekin and we are obviously delighted that our broadband speeds are so quick.

"We are not surprised, however, as this is reflective of our extremely efficient electronic infrastructure which supports our co-operative values and our drive to become a business winning and business supporting council. Telford has always been a vibrant, forward thinking, business focussed town and this excellent news from uSwitch reflects that."
