Slow broadband connections are more of a frustration than NHS waiting times according to a new study by telecoms provider O2.
In their 'Niggles and Narks' survey the company found that 41 per cent of people considered waiting for their internet connection as their biggest daily annoyance.
Only 14 per cent listed NHS waiting times as the biggest problem.
36 per cent said that unfriendly customer support irritated them the most, compared to 26 per cent who said that crime was the biggest factor and 18 per cent who said that job cuts were.
Other issues that really got up people's noses were potholes in the road, high council tax and in particular litter in the street.
