Broadband, Tech Digest news

Fibre-Optic-Cable.jpgVirgin Media’s 100MB broadband service is now available to four million UK residents, with plenty more areas in-line to receive the super-fast broadband upgrade before the year is out.

86 UK areas currently have access to the fibre optic network, with Bromborough, Livingston, Horndean and Stretford getting the super-fast connection by the end of the month too.

“As data consumption rises and consumers grow increasingly reliant on their broadband service, only Virgin Media’s unique network is primed to cater for the UK’s impending data explosion,” said Jon James, executive director of broadband at Virgin Media.

“With four million homes now able to ‘get in the fast lane’ with our 100Mb service, the UK is racing up the broadband league tables and we’re delighted to be playing the leading role in boosting the UK’s digital infrastructure.”

100MB Virgin Media broadband costs £35 per month when taken with a Virgin phone package, or £45 when taken without the phone package. It’s a service 16 times faster than the national average, allowng for the average full HD film to be downloaded in just seven minutes, and an entire album’s worth of MP3s in around five seconds.

A 200MB service is also being trialled, while Virgin Media are also installing a 1.5Gb cable trial in East London too.
