The days of dial-up connections and overnight downloads are long gone, folks. Today, eight out of 10 people in the UK have access to the Internet, and according to communications regulator Ofcom, the nation's average broadband speed is a healthy 7.6Mbit/s.
The stats are incredible; 50 per cent of UK adults now use social-networking sites at home, on average each household owns three different types of internet-enabled device, and in January 2012 the average amount of time Internet users spent online through a laptop or desktop was 24.6 hours per month - more than double the amount of time users spent online in January 2004.
We're a nation of Internet addicts, it seems, and that makes the quality of our Internet service provider all the more important. There has been plenty of discussion over how advertised speeds compare to real-world performance, and with varying costs, contract-lengths and packages, choosing the right provider has become a crucial decision.
So this week's Question of the Week is a simple one; are you happy with your current broadband provider? Let us know in the comments below.
