Saw this article in The Register today. States the obvious somewhat, and makes a laughing stock of terms like "superfast" and "up to" claims. When you need the internet most (peak times) it all depends on how much bandwidth your ISP has at the backend - little to do with how fast your modem or package says you have "up to".
