Virgin Media Business Connects All 40 Arqiva UK Sites to Superfast Fibre

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013 (9:00 am) - Score 887

Arqiva, which currently provides much of the infrastructure behind TV, radio, satellite and mobile communications in the United Kingdom, has received a significant capacity boost after ISP Virgin Media Business completed the build of new fibre optic network to link all 40 of its sites across the country.

The new “data superhighway” (Arqnet2) network should provide Arqiva with plenty of room to expand and support the latest TV and 4G based mobile broadband networks by making it possible to transmit data bundles of up to 16 Terabytes via “superfast speeds“.

Mark Lovell, Arqiva’s Head of Technical Architecture, said:

Arqiva’s customers expect a service that can deliver their TV content across the country, to whatever device the audience is using. To enable us to distribute this efficiently and reliably we needed a network that understood our needs. Using Arqnet2 and in working with [VMB], we are able to reassure our customers on capacity and speed of the network, delivering a consistently great service.”

George Wareing, VMB’s Sales Director for Mobile & Broadcast, added:

We live in an ever-connected world, where people expect their digital demands to be met. The rise in TV catch-up services like ‘+1’ plus the demand for HD and 3D TV content mean media operators need networks that won’t buckle under the pressure of too much data being pushed through the pipes.

By helping Arqiva to meet this explosive demand for capacity and compete in this data-driven market, we’re ensuring that media operators can deliver a world-class service at superfast speeds.”

Unfortunately the information doesn’t clarify what “superfast” means but we’re fairly confident that it’ll be a lot more than 30Mbps+ :), which is how both Ofcom and the EU currently define “superfast“.
