Virgin Media To Double The Speed Of Broadband


For most UK broadband users the thought of a broadband speed of around 1.5 Gbps is simply science fiction, but this is exactly what cable TV, phone and broadband provider Virgin Media have been testing.

These tests have proven to be such as success that the company are looking to roll out this super fast broadband service in the hi-tech business centre known as Silicon Roundabout in East London over the next eighteen months at a cost of around £110 million.

According to Neil Berkett, the chief executive of Virgin Media, he said that;

“As people are increasingly doing more online, and getting connected to the internet with lots of different devices, having a fast, reliable broadband service should not be a luxury,”

“We want to make sure that consumers have access to the best value broadband service and that means a superfast connection.”
