Businesses and consumers in Sussex are continuing to suffer from slow broadband speeds, it has been claimed.

According to, residents in just three towns – Brighton, Portslade and Worthing – can download at a faster rate than the average person in Britain.

Sussex Enterprise Chief Executive Mark Froud commented that infrastructure investment is needed across the county to improve people's online experience.

Speaking to the Argus, he stated: "Sussex needs to see speeds of 20Mb by 2015 and the only place that is likely to get there is Brighton.

"What about the rural areas? Many internet-based firms are not based in urban centres and they demand better broadband speeds. They are the companies of the future."

Earlier this week, concerns were raised about the quality of broadband services on offer in Cheltenham, a large spa town in Gloucestershire which is currently served by just a single telephone exchange.
