This has highlighted the need to have quick and reliable broadband internet access, but connection speeds can vary.

The website ThinkBroadband has published data revealing the quality of broadband services for each constituency in Sheffield and Rotherham, which we have ranked from highest to lowest.

Below is the estimated maximum mean download speed (EMMDS) in megabits per second for each area. This figure is based around everyone buying the fastest Virgin Media, KC or Openreach product available to them.

Also listed is the percentage of full fibre availability for each constituency, as this is the most dependable technology.

In these confusing and worrying times, local journalism is more vital than ever. Thanks to everyone who helps us ask the questions that matter by taking out a digital subscription or buying a paper. We stand together. Nancy Fielder, editor.
