Specifically, the average value of data download speed last year rose to 27.01 Mbps from 20.03 Mbps a year ago, according to Yperion platform measurements.
This improvement is attributed by the Commission to the increase of available VDSL lines that offer higher download speeds of 50 Mbps and 100 Mbps.
