South Lanarkshire Speed Test Results

We analysed the results of people in South Lanarkshire test providers multiple times, with each test starting no more than 30 minutes after the previous speed test. On average, people in South Lanarkshire ran 2 speed tests per session. Looking at download speeds, if the South Lanarkshire resident's final test is 10% faster than their starting download speed, we count that as a succesful and faster speed test result.
