Yes, that can be an issue depending on how you intend to trade. It is also easily solved by third party data providers but it is not a problem for many strategies. IQFeed or E-Signal would have much better data quality.

Your initial question was about brokers and you should look beyond the data feed. You should be looking instead at commissions, the balance sheet, how they manage security, funding, margins etc. Keep in mind that whatever trading platform you chose you can be certain that IB will be well supported.

There must be a broker in the UK that uses CQG if you just want to trade futures. I am sure there are traders here that would be able to provide some information.
