Virgin Media’s (www.virginmedia.com/100Mb) rollout of its ultra-fast 100Mb broadband service has now reached 10 million UK homes according to a latest update from the company.
The milestone follows news that its 100Mb fibre optic broadband service has been made available in the cabled areas of Bromley, Dundee, Norton Hawkfield (North East Somerset) and Staverton (Gloucestershire).
Originally scheduled for completion by mid-2012, the rollout of the 100Mb broadband service is now expected to be completed ahead of schedule in Spring 2012, at which point the ultrafast service will be available to half of all UK homes.
Virgin Media’s Executive Director of Broadband, Jon James said: “Soon half the country will be able to get superfast 100Mb broadband from us. Reaching today’s milestone puts us ahead of schedule as we help propel the UK up the global broadband rankings”.
James continued: “Broadband is coming of age as more people give up on slow DSL in favour of superfast fibre optic speeds. With Virgin Media yet again confirmed as the fastest by Ofcom just last week, this along with our fantastic TiVo TV service means we have an incredible combination that lets our customers enjoy the digitally connected world to the full”.
Virgin Media’s 100Mbps broadband package costs from £35 a month when taken with its telephone line rental costing £13.90 a month
Unlimited calls to UK landlines and Virgin Mobiles at the weekends are included in the price, while free installation worth £49.95 is being offered for all orders placed online.
