Over half of broadband users in the UK would happily pay extra to get access to faster services, new research has found.
According to a poll by ISPreview.co.uk, 51.5 per cent of respondents are keen to pay more for a 100Mb connection, even if they already have access to a reliable 10Mb service.
The study also revealed that a quarter of web users regard broadband speeds of 50Mb or more as enough to meet their needs, while 21.2 per cent claimed 20Mb would be adequate.
In addition, nearly 80 per cent of broadband users claim to be either familiar or very familiar with next-generation internet technology.
The release of the findings has come after the Financial Times revealed that BT is set to expand its fibre-optic broadband coverage.
It is believed that the broadband provider will reveal the plans when it announces its full-year results later this week.
