This week's Which? tech podcast takes a look at the latest Ofcom broadband speed survey, which highlights the discrepancies between the download speeds that consumers pay for and those they actually get.

Ben Stevens, Al Warman and Ceri Stanaway join Mel Dowding in the studio to discuss broadband speeds, increases to BT landline call charges and Ofcom's latest proposal to make it easier for people to take unresolved complaints to a free, independent resolution service. 

There's also news on the relaunch of the HMV digital website which features cheap MP3 downloads, and Samsung's 2View dual-screen digital camera.

There's a new update on the PVRs that have been losing their Electronic Programme Guides (EPGs), making it harder to schedule recordings from Freeview. 

And the team take a sneak peek at the boxful of mobile phones heading off to be tested at the Which? test labs. The line-up of handsets passing through their hands includes the Nokia 2610, the Apple iPhone 4 and the tiny Sony Xperia X10 Mini. 

There are also news on the Sony Ericsson's Vivaz Pro, which features HD video recording; and the Samsung Galaxy S, which is a sleek Android rival to the iPhone.

It's all in this week's Which? tech podcast. Hit the play button to listen or use the arrows to scroll through the podcast archive to see every available edition from the past year.
