UK internet users do not believe the government has done enough to improve the national broadband infrastructure and web service delivery.

In a survey conducted by, a resounding 91.8 per cent of respondents questioned the measures taken by the government to improve the end-user broadband experience.

Culture Minister Jeremy Hunt recently announced that £830 million will be spent bringing high-speed broadband services to rural communities by 2015.

However, 88.7 per cent of respondents said that a 2Mb minimum connection speed is too slow, especially in light of the technological advances possible over the next three years.

Broadband speeds of 100Mb are already being rolled out by Virgin Media across the UK, while other internet service providers have been testing 1Gb broadband technology.

Some 73.4 per cent of interviewees agreed with the decision to provide guaranteed broadband for all by 2015, but it would appear that the government's broadband vision differs to that of the average man in the street.
