Virgin Media 100Mb Broadband Ahead of Schedule to Reach 10 Million UK Homes

Posted: 06th Feb, 2012 By: MarkJ
virgin media uk 100mb superhubvirgin media uk 100mb best broadbandCable giant Virgin Media has announced that the rollout of its "ultrafast fibre optic" 100Mbps broadband service will complete ahead of schedule in Spring 2012 (instead of mid-2012 as originally planned). The service, which was launched at the end of 2010, is already available to 10 million homes across the UK (13 million is the goal).

Furthermore Virgin Media claims that the growing take up and use of connected devices has caused an explosion in the volume of online data. In fact the operator now carries twice as much data as two years ago. During peak periods internet traffic on Virgin Media's network now exceeds over three quarters of a terabit per second.

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

"Soon half the country will be able to get superfast 100Mb broadband from us. Reaching today’s milestone puts us ahead of schedule as we help propel the UK up the global broadband rankings. Broadband is coming of age as more people give up on slow DSL in favour of superfast fibre optic speeds. With Virgin Media yet again confirmed as the fastest by Ofcom just last week, this along with our fantastic TiVo TV service means we have an incredible combination that lets our customers enjoy the digitally connected world to the full."

Virgin Media recently announced a major £110m upgrade that would at least double the broadband speeds for its cable customers. The one exception was Virgin's latest 100Mbps package, which will instead be increased to 120Mbps. A future 200Mbps service is still under trial but could be officially announced before the end of this year.
