Virgin Media might launch 100Mbps broadband this week

PM teases possible launch date of 100Mbps broadband

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's super-fast broadband.

Virgin Media's 100Mbps broadband looks set to land this week with the Prime Minister letting slip its release date.

When David Cameron gave a speech about a 'new economic dynamism' to the CBI, he mentioned that Virgin Media would be revealing the "new ultrafast 100Mbps service."

According to TechRadar, Cameron said: "...we'll work with utility companies to get more investment in our energy, with construction companies on our roads, with the telecommunications industry on broadband. This collaboration is already working. Virgin Media is rolling out a new superfast broadband service this week."

The Prime Minister to continued to say that it was exciting to soon unveil the super-fast broadband connection at a 100Mbps.

Virgin Media has not commented on the speculated release date, although with the Prime Minister's words, we can expect the details to drop any time now.

With rural areas getting broadband, BT moving into fibre-optic networks and Virgin Media's new broadband service, the UK can hope for a faster and more developed broadband future.
