The Which? broadband satisfaction survey
Which?'s broadband survey is based on the real-life experiences of thousands of broadband customers. Which? conducts a survey every six months to keep up to date with which providers have the most satisfied customers. It covers all major UK broadband providers.
Providers are rated for connection speed, connection reliability, customer service, value for money, ease of set-up and online and phone support. Respondents also give their overall satisfaction and their likelihood of recommending their provider to a friend, which combine to form the overall customer score.
The latest survey was carried out during November/December 2010 with 10,306 Which? online panel members answering questions about their broadband ISP.
