Virgin Media to Offer fastest UK Broadband
Virgin Media is set to turn up the dial on its cable network, offering users speeds of up to 100Mbps (megabits per second). It aims to provide the service to over 50% of the UK by mid-2012, beginning in December with 200,000 homes in London, the Home Counties and West Yorkshire.
It is the latest move in the race to bring super-fast broadband services to the UK and it should give new impetus to rival BT’s super-fast broadband rollout.
Neil Berkett, chief executive of Virgin Media described the service as “a significant milestone”.
“The world of possibilities that broadband will enable is set to explode,” he said.
The first towns earmarked for the super-fast service are Chelmsford, Farnborough and Heckmondwike in West Yorkshire.
The service will be available as part of a telephone or TV bundle for £35 a month or £45 for a standalone broadband product.
