Virgin Mobile speeds up m-broadband – United Kingdom

Quadruple-play provider, Virgin Media, has released a new 7.2 MB USB modem, which is twice the speed of their existing offering. No indications of actual network speeds came with the announcement, being something which consumer groups have become very vocal about.

Graeme Oxby, Executive Director for Mobile, Virgin Media, commented: “We’re thrilled to be offering this faster mobile broadband to our users. If you’re not at home or near a wireless connection, mobile broadband is the best way of staying connected on the move and we’re delighted to be making this a speedier, more pleasant experience for our customers.”

The mobile broadband service is part of Virgin’s MVNO relationship with T-Mobile.
