PORTSMOUTH has raced in front of the rest after being named the city offering the fastest mobile internet speeds in the UK.

People living in the city can enjoy an average download speed of 3.554mbps, according to data collected by uSwitch’s 3G speed testing app.

Of the 30 largest cities rated in the survey, Liverpool is second fastest with average speeds of 3.297, while Wolverhampton only musters 2.463.

A uSwitch.com survey of more than 1,000 smartphone users revealed four out of 10 participants are unhappy with their current 3G speeds, with almost half admitting their download speeds as ‘slow’.

Only six per cent are happy with the ‘very fast’ speed of their mobile internet.

It found almost half described their coverage as ‘patchy’ or ‘non existent’.
