UK internet service provider (ISP) Be Broadband has welcomed the findings of a new Ofcom report into UK download speeds.

The study found that the capability of consumer broadband deals has continued to increase, with the average connection speed now said to be 5.2Mb.

According to Tom Williams, Managing Director at Be Broadband, the ISP has been presented in a positive light by the Ofcom study.

"The report shows that Be - along with our parent company O2 - is the fastest DSL provider across the board, at all times of the day," he stated.

"We showed little or no slowdown during peak hours, indicating lower levels of contention. Which is nice."

Be was also found to have some of the lowest latency and packet loss compared to other broadband providers, Mr Williams said.

Last week, the ISP announced its future ambition to offer high-speed fibre-optic broadband in the UK consumer market.
