Britain's Virgin Media Doubles its Broadband Speeds -- Top Tier Hits 120 Mbps

Virgin Media is doubling the speeds of over four million of its broadband customers across the UK. The top speed tier will now offer downlinks of up to 120 Mbps.

The upgrade will begin rolling out in February 2012 and continue over the next 18 months.

Subscribers to Virgin Media’s current 10 Mbps, 20 Mbps, 30 Mbps and 50 Mbps services will see their speeds at least doubled, with 100Mb customers seeing a significant increase to 120 Mbps. These speeds will ensure customers get high quality access to the huge growth in new online services.

Virgin Media chief executive officer, Neil Berkett, said: “The burgeoning market for better connectivity has given us an opportunity to transform the digital experience of millions of our customers and to bring about a massive step change in the number of UK consumers who have access to exciting, next generation services. Virgin Media has a track record of leading Britain’s digital development and this major initiative will meet the growing demand for faster broadband as well as provide significantly more value to our customers.http://mediacentre.virginmedia.com
