Virgin Media Looking at 150 Mbps

by David Allen

In just two years’ time the UK could be looking at a Virgin Media broadband service, that offers a connection speeds of between 100 Mbps and 150 Mbps.

This will be available a couple of years before BT completes its up-to-40 Mbps network upgrade.

Virgin Media is already ahead the game when it comes to providing super fast broadband services and every step forward it takes it taking its service further away from that of BT.

Once fully operational, the Virgin Media network will provide this service to approximately half of the UK population and in theory could offer speeds up-to-200 Mbps.

Fortunately the management has not ruled out the possibility of opening up the network to rival internet service providers.

  1. What a shame they don’t come further south than Exeter! I believe vast swathes of Wales and Scotland also cannot receive cable.

    I guess we’ll have to look to the mobile phone networks for service outside of the Country’s main population centers.
