New research from USwitch has found just how much the actual rather than available top broadband speeds can differ from city to city and region to region - the results aren't pretty if you don't live in southern England.
While Middlesbrough (34.46Mbps), Belfast (34.34Mbps) and Brighton (33.8Mbps) enjoy the fastest internets in the country, things are not very rosy in Yorkshire, which can claim four of the slowest cities as its own.
Even though 90 per cent of the UK now theoretically has access to 'superfast' broadband, 20 of the towns and cities in the league table have average speeds slower than the 24Mbps superfast threshold.
Hull limps in last at 12.24Mbps a second, then Aberdeen (15.67) and Milton Keynes (17.10).

Low-cost Irish airline Ryanair has announced three new routes to Poland from its hub at Belfast International Airport.
The airline will start scheduled flights to Gdansk, Warsaw and Wroclaw this winter. Ryanair will operate two flights per week to each city.
The news comes after the airline announced seven other new routes from the airport earlier this year.
The airport's managing director, Graham Keddie, said it was "fantastic news".
"It means that this winter should be our busiest ever," he said. He added that the routes "deliver a very comprehensive network to a new and important Polish market".
Kenny Jacobs, from Ryanair, told Good Morning Ulster said there was a demand for more routes to Poland "from the business community".
"Poland, more and more every year, is becoming a popular choice for businesses to locate some of their services," he said.
Mr Jacobs added that the increasing demand for city breaks also influenced the decision.
THE National Lottery is hunting for a EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker winner - who is yet to claim their prize.
Players in Fermanagh and Omagh are being urged to check and double-check their unique EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker code for the chance to become an instant millionaire.
Every week Millionaire Maker guarantees to create two UK millionaires – one on Tuesday and one on Friday – but the lucky winner from the draw on Tuesday April 5 2016 has still to check their ticket and claim their prize.
The search is now on to find the owner of the winning ticket which was bought in the District Council Area of Fermanagh and Omagh.
For every EuroMillions line played, UK players automatically receive a Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket.
The winning code on April 5 was MGY489185 and the lucky ticket-holder has until 2 October, 2016 to claim their prize.
If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.
The National Lottery changes the lives of individuals as well as communities – players raise, on average, over £34 million for National Lottery-funded projects every week.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings – this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life.
“Being able to guarantee two UK millionaires every week with EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker is fantastic and we’re urging everyone who bought a EuroMillions ticket in this area to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding, so that this prize can turn someone into the newest member of the lottery millionaire club.
“Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa. We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win.”
With all National Lottery draws, players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their prize if they have the winning ticket. Anyone who has any queries or who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0844 338 7551 or email email@example.com
