Virgin Media has been testing out 50Mbps broadband for some time now, and now a few residents of Warrington will get access to the same super-fast system for two months at the same price as their existing Virgin Media broadband package.
Though the Register reports these lucky 200 residents as the “first”, a number of other Virgin Media customers in Ashford, Folkestone and Dover have already been using the souped-up system.
Given Virgin Media’s current woes, these speedy northerners could well be the last to enjoy super fast broadband for some time to come. Oh, and don’t forget Virgin Media’s broadband speed throttling, either, because that tends to put a dampener on things.
