Virgin Media claims to boost Britain’s broadband speeds


Virgin claims it is upgrading its broadband services, with customers on Virgin Media’s ‘L’ tier broadband package upgraded for free from 4MB to 10MB during a gradual roll out that starts from February and should be complete late summer. Virgin will also be trialling a 50MB service during 2008.

According to Neil Berkett, acting CEO of Virgin Media: “Virgin Media’s cable network gives us a natural superiority over other broadband services and we’re delighted to reward our customers with this free upgrade. We’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s possible with our cable network, and we will continue to look for new ways to satisfy the growing demand for even faster broadband in the UK. We’re proud to be leading the country’s superfast broadband revolution.”
