UK broadband connection speeds - the devil in the detail

On March 8th, Akamai released the Fourth Quarter 2016, State of the Internet / Connectivity Report, which gives a global view of internet connectivity trends as observed across the Akamai Intelligent Platform.  It is always an interesting read, and looking back over the report's history since its first publication in 2009, we can really see how much traffic trends and speeds have evolved.  The 'high broadband' category was then defined as speeds above 5Mbps, and had a global adoption rate of 16%.  According to the report's editor, David Belson, we are now seeing 15Mbps adoption rates at 25% worldwide!
