Virgin Media 100mbps broadband officially rolled out

13 Million homes will be eligible to upgrade

As previously rumoured, Virgin Media has officially announced the roll out of its ultra-fast 100mbps broadband, which will roll out across its network over the next few weeks and be available to order from December. The service will allow users to download a song in 5 seconds, a TV show in 30 seconds and an HD movie in around 7 minutes.

Nearly 13 million homes will be able to order the service, which will set you back £45 per month if bought as a standalone product, or £35 with another Virgin Media bundle. The first areas to get the go ahead are (parts of) London, the South East and Yorkshire, which will ‘propel the country up the global broadband access table.’

Virgin Media’s CEO Neil Berkett says: “The launch of our 100Mb service is a significant milestone in the UK’s broadband evolution and a vivid illustration of the power of our next generation network. The world of possibilities that broadband will enable is set to explode and we’re excited about the innovations we can bring to consumers in the next decade.”

Even the Prime Minister’s chuffed, adding: "We want to see superfast broadband brought to peoples’ homes and businesses right across the country and this exciting news takes us a step closer towards reaching that goal."
