November's average broadband speed was 7.6 megabits per second, up from 6.8Mbps in May, says the regulator.

Seems like the UK is doing well with one thing at least. There are certainly some things I miss about living there. Also of interest are Virgin Media's results:

"up to" 50Mbps - Real avg 47.4-48.8Mbps
"Up to" 10Mbps - Real avg 9.3-9.6Mbps
"Up to" 30MBPS - Real avg 30.6-31.4Mbps

Are you listening North American ISPs?

Oh, and please don't turn this into a Speedtest.net thread.

You no get increase in cap and speed. You live in a country where profits are the only goal. Why would ATT update their infrastructure when they can screw you just fine the way it is?
Makes me happy!
