Stoke-on-Trent Speed Test Results

We analysed the results of people in Stoke-on-Trent test providers multiple times, with each test starting no more than 30 minutes after the previous speed test. On average, people in Stoke-on-Trent ran 3 speed tests per session. Looking at download speeds, if the Stoke-on-Trent resident's final test is 10% faster than their starting download speed, we count that as a succesful and faster speed test result. 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 Stoke-on-Trent's residents, of the speed tests we measured, 45.05% were fast, 23.96% slow, and 30.99% broadly the same.
