“From establishing the UK’s first ever broadband service to the launch of 100Mb just ten years later, Virgin Media has led the greatest developments in digital Britain,” said Jon James, executive director of broadband at Virgin Media.

“We’ve invested many billions of private money in order to build a growing network that already passes approximately 13 million homes across the UK. We’re racing to get these ultrafast speeds across this entire area as fast as we can to meet demand.”

  • Smart, drop the mobile broadband and put your full effort into household broadband, way to go Virgin. I mean who doesnt like Virgin’s?

  • I have the regular Virgin broadband, which is pretty fast as it is. Never had any issues with it anyway. Hope the 100MBPS version gets up North soon!
