Waoo! says Danish broadband speeds beat European average

Wednesday 28 October 2015 | 12:52 CET | News
Waoo! the fibre services company formed by Danish regional energy providers, said a new European Union report has found that on average, European broadband customers only get internet at 75 percent of the speed they are paying for. The commission is requiring providers to inform customers of the actual speed of the services supplied. Waoo! said the Danish consumer arbitrator set out guidelines in 2012 for broadband marketing in Denmark, such as scrapping the sale of 'up to' speeds. However, some Danish customers are still unsatisfied with the sector.
