Virgin have begun rolling out their super-fast 100Mbps broadband service to select areas of the UK.
The first areas connected to the network will be Hackmondike, Farnborough, Colchester and Barry in South Wales, with the network set to expand over the course of the next year and on into 2012.
Speeds that fast dont come cheap though. Also offering 10Mbps upload speeds, the subscription costs £45 a month, or £35 with a phone line package. You do get a flashy new wireless router thrown in though.
With BT announcing a similar service in October, Virgin are keen to keep their network ahead of British Telecom’s growing fibre-optic infrastructure.
