Virgin Media’s broadband customers are set to receive a speed boost, the cable company has announced.
Next month the company will start an 18-month the upgrade programme which will boost speeds for its current 10Mb, 20Mb, 30Mb and 50Mb subscribers.
Virgin promise users will see their speeds “at least doubled” and say users with their 100mb service will see “a significant increase to 120Mb.”
CEO 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.
“As people are increasingly doing more online, and getting connected to the internet with lots of different devices, having a fast, reliable broadband service should not be a luxury. We want to make sure that consumers have access to the best value broadband service and that means a superfast connection.”
The speed upgrades will mean the following changes:
10Mb increased to 20Mb
20Mb and 30Mb increased to 60Mb
50Mb increased to 100Mb
100Mb increased to 120Mb
Upstream speeds and traffic management fair usage amounts will be increased in proportion to the increase in downstream speed.
