Virgin super-sizes XL broadband to 30Mbps

Darren Allan -

Virgin Media has announced a new 30Mbps service which will replace its existing XL package that runs at 20Mbps from today.

Customers who wish to adopt XL broadband will be able to get the 50% faster service for less if they take on a Virgin Media landline as well. The previous XL price was £20 per month as part of that bundle, and the new service will be £18.50.

Existing customers on XL at 20Mbps will be able to super-size their line to the new 30Mbps package with a one-off upgrade fee of £30. Virgin is charging this amount to cover activation and the exchange of the customer’s old modem and router for the company’s new SuperHub3.

So Virgin’s packages now encompass 10Mbps, 30Mbps, 50Mbps and 100Mbps is being rolled out. Some 13 million homes across the UK have access to the company’s cable.

Jon James, Executive Director of Broadband at Virgin Media, commented: “As consumers continually demand more and more from their broadband, the unique power of our next-generation network means that we’re able to turn up the dial to meet their needs.”

“With so many devices connecting to the internet at home these days, our new 30Mb service will give Virgin Media families that extra boost needed to make everything run smoothly, with speeds that don’t slow down depending on where you live.”

    i wish they would actually manage their current infrastructure better before expanding and putting further strain on their shoddy network…

    paying for 50meg and get a very shaky service of anywhere between 1 and 20meg most nights for the past month!
