Virgin Broadband To Get 100Mbps Speeds

Virgin Media ( has announced plans to commence the roll out of 100Mbps fibre optic broadband speeds by the end of 2010.
The new 100Mbps service will be Virgin’s flagship broadband product amongst its existing 10Mb, 20Mb and 50Mb packages and offers speeds 24 times faster than the average speeds provided by rival providers.
Such lightening speeds mean tasks like downloading a music album will take only 5 seconds, while an hour long TV show will take just 31 seconds.
Virgin Media has a unique fibre optic cable broadband network that already delivers up to 50Mb broadband speeds to just over half of all UK homes.
According to the company, its broadband network is reportedly able to deliver very close to its advertised headline broadband speeds, which is unlike many of its ADSL competitors, or that of new fibre optic services – A clear dig at BT Broadband’s new fibre to the cabinet Infinity service!

Commenting on the news, Neil Berkett, Virgin Media’s CEO, said: “There is nothing we can’t do with our fibre optic cable network, and the upcoming launch of our flagship 100Mb service will give our customers the ultimate broadband experience”.
Berkett continued: “Just as we led the way by launching the UK’s first ever next generation service, we want to keep giving our customers the very best broadband available, by investing in technological innovation and transforming the experience they have when they are online. The launch of Virgin Media’s 100Mb service will be a historic moment and will mean the UK will be comparable to other leading broadband nations”.
News of the 100Mbps roll out, the extension of its 200Mbps trial to Coventry and record net customer additions for Q4 2009 led to Virgin Media shares jumping 7%.
Virgin’s fibre optic cable broadband packages are available to 55% of UK homes. No BT phone line is required.
It’s 10Mbps service is currently available for free for the first 3 months, followed by £12.50 a month after when customers order online at the website. Free weekend calls to UK landlines are also included.
