The way broadband speeds are advertised is misleading and should be changed, a cross-party group of 50 MPs has said.

Internet providers are not in breach of current guidelines, even if only 10% of customers can obtain their fastest advertised speed, the group said.

The British Infrastructure Group is calling for greater powers to enable consumers to hold providers to account.

The Advertising Standards Authority said it was aware of concerns about speeds and would consider further work.
