Virgin begins doubling user broadband speeds

Virgin begins doubling user broadband speeds

Cable ISP Virgin Media is set to begin rolling out a speed upgrade for customers in 30 towns and cities across the UK.

The upgrade, announced in January, will boost 10Mb/sec packages to 20Mb/sec, 20 and 30Mb/sec to 60Mb/sec and 50Mb/sec to 100Mb/sec. Those customers already on a 100Mb/sec package will be bumped to 120Mb/sec but pay less for the privilege.

The first areas to see the upgrade Newcastle, Ashford, Ipswich, Dundee, Belfast and Cambridge, with further customers in other areas to be upgraded automatically as the Double Speeds programme rolls out over the next 18 months.
