This geodata pack provides a variety of statistics related to the availability and speed of broadband at the unit postcode level related to a snapshop taken between June to July 2014 for the Local Authority District: Barnet (E09000003). The data were obtained from the 2014 Ofcom Infrastructure Report. Due to variations in broadband performance over time, the file should not be regarded as a definitive and fixed view of the UK's fixed broadband infrastructure. However, the information provided in this file may be useful in identifying variations in broadband performance by postcode and the impact of superfast broadband on overall broadband performance. The file should be viewed in conjunction with the Infrastructure Report published by Ofcom in December 2014, which details how each of the metrics is defined: http://stakeholders.ofcom.org.uk/binaries/research/infrastructure/2014/infrastructure-14.pdf
