what you can do with a 10 Mbit/s connection

The broadband universal service

If you can’t get a download speed of at least 10 Mbit/s and an upload speed of at least 1 Mbit/s (this is defined as a ‘decent connection’), you can request an upgraded connection. You can make this request to BT, or to KCOM if you live in the Hull area. You don’t need to be an existing customer of BT or KCOM to apply.
