Improving broadband across the UK
Before superfast broadband, many areas within the UK suffered from very low speeds. Living in a rural village, Mark struggled with poor speeds, which made it difficult to work from home. He implemented a number of techniques to improve his connection and shared these on his local village website. These pages became so popular that Mark had to move them to a dedicated website – called Increase Broadband Speed – which had much more capacity.
He has developed the site over time and it has now been visited by millions of people seeking help to improve their broadband speeds. If you are looking to improve your broadband speeds, please visit:
