UK Internet speeds versus Romania

Just returned from Romania.

In Bucharest 10mbit symmetrical connections!

What about Virgin Media? The UK fibre optic mother of all broadband?

Almost 20 mbit down, but not hardly half a mbit up? Since when is fibre optic asymmetrical?!

Finally, what’s the speed in the Regus serviced office from where I work?

Embarrassing! :(

Checkout the European internet speed statistics. Can’t find UK in the top EU countries by download speed, can you?
