City of London Speed Test Results

We analysed the results of people in City of London test providers multiple times, with each test starting no more than 30 minutes after the previous speed test. On average, people in City of London ran 3 speed tests per session.

We count an unsuccessful, slower result if the final result is 10% slower than the starting result; we'd hope their ISP contacts them ASAP! For speed tests that don't vary by that much, we consider the final result to be the same. For City of London's residents, of the speed tests we measured, 35.56% were fast, 23.43% slow, and 41.01% broadly the same.
