This geodata pack provides broadband coverage and broadband speed data, including information on consumers’ connection speed, collected from operators on 2016 and aggregated at the LSOA level for the LSOAs covering the Local Enterprise Partnerships: Swindon and Wiltshire (LEP) (E37000033). The coverage data was collected as a snapshot in June 2016. The capacity data was collected over the month of June 2016. This data should be viewed alongside the Connected Nations Report 2016 and methodology document, which summarise Ofcom's approach to the data analysis and details how each of the metrics have been defined.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 byLSOAand the impact of superfast broadband on overall broadband performance. Due to privacy concerns information for postcodes with less than four broadband connections was removed. For more information visit:
