The Guardian have created an infographic highlighting the differences in broadband speeds in the UK.

Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), part of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, is delivering superfast broadband and better mobile connectivity to the nation. The Government is supporting investment to provide superfast broadband coverage to 90% of the UK by early 2016 and 95% by December 2017.

So what exactly is the difference between standard (copper) broadband and superfast (fibre) broadband?
