Virgin Media 100Mb Rollout Hits 20 Million Milestone
Virgin Media’s (www.virginmedia.com/100Mb) 100Mb rollout has reached a new milestone with 20 million people in the UK now able to get the super-fast 100Mbps broadband speeds.
This equates to a third of the UK and comes only 12 months after the company commenced its 100Mbps rollout across its fibre optic broadband network.
The news comes following the announcement that homes in Harborne in Birmingham, Lincoln, Seven Kings in Greater London and Solihull can now sign up to the ultrafast broadband speeds.
Prices for Virgin Media’s 100Mbps broadband package start from £25 a month and include unlimited weekend phone calls to UK landlines and Virgin Mobiles when taken with Virgin Media phone line rental (£13.90 a month).
Orders placed online at the www.virginmedia.com website can also qualify for £30 off and free installation worth £49.95.
6 months free Spotify Premium is also included which gives users access to over 15 million music tracks (the usual cost for Spotify Premium is £9.99 a month).
Commenting on the 20 million milestone, Virgin Media’s Executive Director of Broadband, Jon James said: “We’re very proud to reach another significant milestone in our broadband history as we play a leading part in the development of the UK’s next generation infrastructure”.
James continued: “Providing speeds of 100Mb to a third of the UK today, and to a further four million homes by the middle of next year, assures Virgin Media’s lead in the British broadband revolution”.
Virgin Media plans to complete the 100Mb rollout across its entire fibre optic broadband network (half of the UK) by the summer of next year.
