As a side note why is downloading a "movie" the media proxy for speed? Who
downloads films other than pirates? All legal access to films is via
streaming, which means that you can watch a film without depending on raw
d/load speeds.


The annual study
( https://www.cable.co.uk/broadband/sp...-speed-league/ )
seems to use mean speed.

Median would make more sense otherwise a few users with, say, 1Gb fibre
could massively boost a country's result.
