A new study has found Edinburgh to have the UK's best connectivity.

International bank Santander has ranked British towns and cities against a range of criteria, including broadband speeds and uptake, reports

The chart - which excluded the 32 London boroughs - placed Edinburgh in first place, ahead of Worthing and Grimsby.

Brighton, Wolverhampton, Dundee, Cambridge, Birmingham, Salford, Glasgow, Bristol and Oxford were found to be the next-best connected locations.

At the other end of the scale, Milton Keynes was the worst-placed town or city, followed by Belfast, Hastings, Wakefield, Barnsley and Rochdale.

Many of the settlements included in the Santander survey have received broadband network upgrades over the past couple of years, or are scheduled to do so in the near future.

However, super-fast broadband adoption rates remain low in many areas - even those with widespread fibre coverage.
