UK's slowest broadband towns revealed
Slowest broadband spots discovered in the South East.
The results are in and it's bad news for the people of Cranbrook in Kent. In a recent study by price comparison site uSwitch, the 7000-resident town took the dubious honour of having the slowest broadband speeds in the country, trudging into last place with a measly 1.32 Mbps download speed.
Cranbrook wasn't alone in its failings, as between them the counties of Kent and Sussex are home to six of the country's 20 worst broadband speeds: Cranbrook, Ashford and Dover in Kent, Hastings Lavant and Pullborough in Sussex. Each of these towns' residents chug through the web at below 2 Mbps, while the UK average is around 7.5.
