UPD Virgin Media 100Mb Ultrafast Broadband Reaches Over 6.5 Million UK Homes

Posted: 20th Jul, 2011 By: MarkJ
virgin media uk 100mb superhubvirgin media uk 100mb best broadbandCable giant Virgin Media has announced that its new "ultrafast" 100Mbps (10Mbps upload) broadband ISP product can now reach more than 6.5 million homes (25% of the UK), which is up from 4 million at the start of June 2011.

The service costs from just £35 per month (£17.50 with the current 6 months half-price promotion) when combined with a £13.50 Virgin Phone Line service (£45 when bought as a standalone product). It includes unlimited downloads (free of any heavy Traffic Management limits), a Virgin Media Super Hub (wireless modem router and USB adapter), unlimited online storage, Virgin Media Security: Total and more.

Jon James, Virgin's Executive Director of Broadband, said:

"Virgin Media has consistently led the greatest developments in broadband in the UK and we’re proud to continue this tradition with the roll-out of our 100Mb service. But we’re not stopping there - we continue to develop broadband technology with trials for 200Mb taking place across the country and we have deployed a cutting-edge 1.5Gb cable broadband trial in East London. Only Virgin Media has the network to drive forward the UK’s digital economy, giving Brits a true world-class digital entertainment service at their fingertips."

The EuroDOCSIS3 (cable technology) based rollout began at the end of last year and is expected to continue until mid-2012, when it will be able to reach half of the country (13 million households). Virgin is then likely to begin planning for a 200Mbps service with 20Mbps upstream speeds.
