Virgin Media introduces ultra high speed broadband service – UK

Virgin Media has launched its ultra high speed 50Mb broadband service via fiber optic cable network in the UK. The new broadband service is nearly nine times faster than the existing average broadband speed in the country.

By the end of this year, the company is expected to have deployed next generation infrastructure over 40% of its network (covering areas in Scotland, the Midlands and South London), with the rest expected to get complete by the summer of 2009.

This improve fixed broadband service will help to strengthen the appeal of Virgin’s bundle packages including their MVNO service, which also offers mobile broadband.
