virgin mediaCable giant Virgin Media UK has revealed that its future 200Mbps broadband (DOCSIS 3) service trials will be showcased as part of this years Ideal Home Show event in Earls Court London (20th March - 5th April). The move follows news last month that VM had expanded its 200Mbps trials (here).

Official trials of the 200Mbps service only began last year and the product itself is unlikely to surface until there is enough demand. However a tentitive launch window of 2012 has previously been hinted at. Trials of faster upstream speeds, including up to 20Mbps, are also underway.

Ashley Stockwell, Virgin's Executive Director for Brand and Marketing, said:

"Ultrafast broadband like our 200Mbps service will enable a whole household to enjoy cutting edge entertainment, not just via computers, but through an array of gadgets all over the home. By pushing the boundaries of broadband in the UK we hope to drive a change in the way Brits enjoy and experience digital entertainment and exciting new services."

However if you simply cannot wait for Virgin Media to rollout its 200Mbps service then its new superfast 100Mbps broadband package should go live by the end of this very year.
