0-50 Megabit

Broadband Speed Chart

Our broadband speed has looked like this for the last ten years. Here’s hoping we get to 50Mbps within the next year or two - and who knows where we’ll be in another ten years.

Here’s where we’re going at the moment:

  • BT is saying that 40% of homes will have the ability to have a 100Mbps connection by the 2012 Olympics: GigaOM
  • It’s possible to get 50Mbps from Virgin Media at the moment, for £30-£40 per month
  • Virgin promise 100Mbps by 2010: TechRadar

My graph matches yours until 2005 and then flatlines… VM 50MB is v tempting right now!
