Communications expert Ofcom has released a new video to help get faster speeds from broadband.
Ofcom launches video guide to faster broadband speeds
Home broadband speeds can be increased with a few tips from communications regulator Ofcom.

It has put together a video, available for free on its website, which aims to help people get the most out of their broadband.

Things like how far away you live from a telephone exchange can affect anyone who has fixed-line broadband, it says.

Putting micro-filters into phone sockets is one way it suggests to make sure broadband works over the same line as a home phone.

The video runs in conjunction with Ofcom's consumer guide, which also aims to inform users what to look out for when going for a broadband bundle.

Slow internet connections were recently highlighted in an O2 survey as being more annoying and worrying than health or crime.

Nearly half of respondents in the poll cited it as their biggest daily concern, while only a quarter said that crime was most worrying.
