Broadband users in a Lincolnshire road suffer a download speed 500 times slower than those in a street enjoying the UK's fastest speed, a study has found.

Cromarty Road in Stamford, Lincolnshire, has an average speed of 0.132Mbps, while Willowfield, in Telford and Wrekin, has registered speeds of 70.9Mbps over the past six months, uSwitch.com found.

Lincolnshire has three of the top 10 slowest streets for broadband in the country with speeds around 37 times slower than the national average of 9Mbps, the survey revealed.

According to the study, it would take Cromarty Road residents 25 hours and 15 minutes to download a two hour film, and one hour and 41 minutes to download an album.
