Ofcom has revealed it will be naming the UK's fastest and slowest ISPs in April.

The regulatory body conducted a survey of 2,500 UK homes in conjunction with broadband resource website SamKnows as part of a six-month research programme into the UK's broadband access.

The initial findings regarding broadband speeds in the UK were published by Ofcom in January this year, and revealed that on average Brits access the web at 3.6Mbps, that's less than the UK's average maximum possible speed of 4.3 Mbps.

Ofcom told PC Pro that following consultations with a number of ISPs, it will publish the data in April this year. However, it is thought questions have been raised by some ISPs over the sample size and methodology of the research.
