How are you enjoying your superfast broadband? The government promised us we'd all be hooked up to speedy connections in no time, and the companies have been busily advertising their superfast, megafast and utterly brilliantly fast products. So we must all be downloading at the click of a button, right?

Sadly not. According to research from uSwitch, one in ten UK postcodes are still downloading at snail's pace of less than 3 Mbps. The slowest village in the UK currently faces average speeds of just 1.11 Mbps. So where are the slowest spots in the country, and what can you do if you're unhappy with your broadband speed?
